The Prati area is in the heart of Rome, near the Vatican, walk you can reach all of the city's best attractions. The area is full of shops with the best brands, restaurants, supermarkets, tourist offices. The transport permit connections to all points of the city quickly. The area is also provided by many private garages. I love the neighborhood Prati for its neoclassical architecture, the commercial vitality and because every corner tells a piece of history, and finally because I was born here and I live for over 40 years.
Metro, bus and taxi stations are near my home and allow a quick connection to all points of Rome and outside Rome.
Other Things to Note
The building where the apartment is located is of particular artistic interest. By Gaetano Koch, who distinguished himself in the art scene of the late '800, for its originality, in the sense that he did not follow the eclectic tastes of the time. His style can be described as neo-Renaissance style, faithful to the canons of the great architects of the '500, such as Michelangelo and Sangallo. In the seventies of the nineteenth century, the architect Kock got assignment of his first architectural works in the city of Rome. He has built some thirty buildings in Rome, commissioned by almost all families of the aristocracy and the upper middle class.
Please don't smoke inside the apartment.
My friends and I stayed in this apartment for 3nights. The moment we came in we where very surprised how big it was and happy to see it was clean and tidy.
We where very happy with the location of the apartment as it is close to the Metro and Vatican, there are some shops nearby and it is a save neighborhood. There are lots of nice restaurants in the area wich we loved.
We took the shuttle bus from the airport and it was very easy to find.
Rome is amazing and even better with a nice place to sleep!
We would recommend this place to anyone.
L'accueil de Sandro a été très chaleureux et il a pris le temps de nous expliquer les différents points intéressants de Rome et de ses environs. L'appartement était tout à fait conforme à la description : clair, confortable et parfaitement aménagé.
En outre, son emplacement près de Saint-Pierre est idéal pour la tourisme grâce à ses nombreuses possibilités de transport à moins de 200 m : Métro, Bus, Tramway, Taxi...
La rue est relativement calme et peu passante, les gens sympathiques et les commerces comme les restaurants, nombreux.
Bref, ce séjour dans cette belle ville chargée d'histoire et de beautés artistiques aura été un excellent moment.
Merci Sandro et merci à Rome...
The apartment was as described, and Sandro's mother met us on time, and Sandro came immediately afterwards. The location is superb for the Vatican, and everything in Rome is within walking distance. Internet connectivity was sporadically problematic, however we solved it by unplugging the router and re-plugging it. You can't do better for location and price with this property!
Sandro é un ospite gentile e sollecito. Abbiamo potuto apprezzare la sua disponibilità, anche nel dare suggerimenti o percorsi. L'appartamento é arredato con gusto e molto comodo, in posizione straordinaria a due passi dal Vaticano e dalla metropolitana. Vicino anche a negozi, ristoranti, enoteche, negozi di alimentari e al mercato rionale. La nostra vacanza é stata indimenticabile.
Sandro was available when we arrived and made us welcome, showing us the apartment and how to use gas cooker, heating etc. He was very friendly and helpful. The apartment is a great spot to stay, a few minutes from the Vatican, and a short walk to Ottaviano Metro. The airport shuttle (Sitbus) has a stop on Via Crescenzio, about 15 - 20 minutes walk, and that was an easy and cheap way to get there. The apartment is well equipped, although has some idiosyncrasies such as shower drainage very slow, second bedroom dark with no ceiling light, but these are part of the 'experience' of travel. Heating was on when we arrived, for which we were grateful as it was a freezing autumn day. Sandro provides two sets of keys which is good when two couples are travelling together, as we were, and allows some independence. Highly recommend this place, and we would stay there again.
Our first time using airbnb was a wonderful experience. Rome at Easter time and Sandro's apartment was a very short distance from St Peter's Basilica. We ( a family of four ) were met at the apartment by Sandro and he helped us carry our suitcases into his beautiful home.
He spent some time explaining how everything worked. He also gave us good directions to local sites, restaurants and shops.
The home was just as the photos portrayed.
The neighbourhood was central to most attractions - close to a tourism shop, mini marts, and countless eating places.
We felt safe at Sandro's house. There was also a safe for our passports and valuables.
Sandro was most helpful, before and during our stay.
We would certainly recommend this apartment to our friends that wish to stay any time in Rome.
