Location of the apartments

The apartments are located at 141, VIA GREGORIO VII ("Via Gregorio Settimo"), in a lovely, small palace dating back to the 1930's. From the windows of our apartments you can see the spectacular Dome of St. Peter's. Via Gregorio VII runs alongside Vatican City. Just a short walk away (within minutes), you will find the world's smallest state.... Christianity's most sacred site.

The historical centre is about 1 km from Romahouse.

Several of the buses that stop right in front of Romahouse bring you towards Rome's most interesting sites within minutes (e.g. Piazza Navona, Spanish Steps, the Roman Forum, the Colosseum, etc.).
VIA GREGORIO VII is a beautiful, tree-lined street where you will find Romans and tourists alike. The neighbourhood boasts many conveniences: supermarkets and grocery shops, banks and drugstores, fine restaurants and fast food restaurants, and all kinds of retail stores.

Upon your arrival you will be offered a map of the area, filled with useful hints about how to get around.
A local market "at your front door", among real Romans!

Every morning a vibrant, open-air market makes Via Gregorio VII cheerful and lively. There, you will find various booths: fruits and vegetables, fresh fish and meats, breads and pastries, as well as street-vendors selling clothes and household items.

  • Martin was helpful and friendly, the apt was clean and suitable for staying a couple of days. The area is not that far from the centre. but Vatican you can see from your window only if you look out of it )

  • Martin was very nice host, friendly and always trying to support us and make us feel comfortable. The apartment was very nice, and located in a great spot if you wish to travel both on foot or with the bus which stops just outside the apartment (also the night bus). There was a couple of problems (problem with the water in the kitchen and a fallen hanger in the bathroom, nothing important) which Martin always took care very fast. The only drawback would be the stairs you have to climb in order to reach the 5th floor, I would not suggest it for older people... In general we had a very nice experience and i could see myself coming back in the future. Enjoy Rome!

  • Very nice apartment close to the Vatican (about 10-15 min walk). You can really see San Pietro from one of the windows :)
    The bed is quite comfortable, though it can be a bit noisy due to the street outside.
    A bus station is directly in front of the house, a train station is a few minutes away. All kinds of different shops are close.
    The apartment is clean and well equipped, in the kitchen you will find everything you need. We enjoyed our stay and can recommend this place.

  • Der Markt direkt vor der Haustüre ist ein großer Pluspunkt!

    Wir haben von Martin einige sehr praktische Empfehlungen und Tipps (z.B. für Spaziergänge) mit einer kleiner Karte erhalten die uns wirklich weitergeholfen haben.

    Durch die Lage an der Hauptstraße kann es nachts etwas laut werden.

    Die Ankunft/Abreise war unkompliziert und die Wohnung ist zweckmäßig ausgestattet: In der Küche war alles verfügbar was zum Kochen benötigt wird. Handtücher und Bettwäsche waren ebenso vorhanden.

Roma House
Hi, I am Martin! I was born in Salzburg - Austria forty-three years ago. After a rather tranquil life as a teacher for music and math at a very nice place in the Austrian mountains I married my Roman girlfriend Daniela and an exciting life in the whorled capital of Italy started. Together we are managing our Romahouse holiday apartments now for nearly 14 years. It is a great experience to get known to so many different cultures from all over the world by renting apartments. This exploration of different custom and languages at work brings you sometimes a certain holiday feeling at home, too! Thus we like to cook not only pizza and pasta at home... but also delicious food from Austria across Asia beyond America inspired by our guests. In our holiday season we like to travel: Europe, Africa, Asia - sometimes cities but mostly we want to refresh our self in intact nature because this contrast from the daily "big city environment" is sometimes a necessary cure for our body and spirit. Recreated back home in Rome again we are glad to introduce our holiday experiences into our work.
