About this listing
A spacious, comfortable, secure apartment well situated on the fifth floor of an elegant ‘19th century building with elevator at Via Pietro della Valle 2, just in front of Sant’Angelo Castle, walking distance from St. Peter Cathedral and Vatican Museum, and, just crossing the bridge, few steps from Piazza Navona and the Pantheon. From there the most important historical sights of the Eternal City can be reached with a short walk.
If you visited some website’s map and inserted the address you could have the correct idea about its excellent location.
Of course, since that’s a delightful very central neighbourhood, it has a good connection with public transportation to go everywhere and it is well served by a variety of local cafes, good restaurants, supermarkets, and delicatessens / convenience stores. There is a welcoming Italian café for breakfast or lunch only a few steps from the building. For those who relish cooking, a large fresh produce market (Via Cola di Rienzo) is a leisurely 5 minute walk away.
for runners: you can run at saint angel castle park or near the tiber.
for families: just inside the castle you have a lovely playground for your children if you want to relax with them!
we can also organize tours (you are welcomed to ask as you book the apartment, and book a tour before your arrival. it is hard to book at arrival since my american guide is very busy!)
The apartment was recently completely renovated. Everything is new, neat and tide and, as you can see from the pics, it’s very fine modern, high quality furnished. It consists of 3 double queen size bedrooms, a living room with a very comfortable double sofa-queen size-bed, 2 bathrooms: the first with tube/shower, the second with shower.
The fully kitchen is equipped with a dishwasher, washing machine, coffee-/espresso machine, gas stove with oven, fridge/freezer unit, hot water boiler, coffee maker as well as all the other necessary appliances.
pc available with printer
The apartment has air conditioning in all the rooms (total 5 - daikin mini splits, great quality and functioning), parquet, washing machine, dishwasher. oven, 5 LCD TV/Sat international channels. ADSL & Wi-Fi internet connection keeps you in touch with the world.
That’s place is very quiet and safe at night too. An ideal residence for larger groups from 4 to 9, the ninth sleeps in an additional bed that we put in the bigger bed room.
The treatment's friendly and helpful and I’m always trying to make good my guests. If you wanted to know some more about, you could read the feedback by the previous guests stayed in my apartments.

Silvio was very accommodating on when we arrived. While I did not meet Silvio personally, the person he sent to show us the apartment didn't excellent job. The apartment was even better than we expected. It slept five adults and one baby very comfortably. The location was perfect. I would absolutely rent from Silvio again!
We are 2 families from No. California traveling with 5 kids. Silvio's apt comfortably accommodated all 9 of us. It is larger than we thought and situated in a very safe neighborhood with nice restaurants, coffee shops, and markets nearby. Silvio promptly responded to all our inquiries and even arranged for private cars to pick us up from the airport. We would stay here again--it is clean, has comfortable beds, and Silvio is very kind and helpful. Grazie Silvio. Thorson and Lee families.
Ideaal appartement voor een bezoek aan Rome.
De locatie van het appartement is zeer goed, dicht bij het Vaticaan en het historisch centrum. Ook de wijk Borgo is leuk: het appartement zelf is zeer rustig, maar binnen een paar minuten afstand allerlei leuke restaurants.
Eigenaar Silvio is zeer gastvrij en doet alle moeite om bezoekers te helpen. Ondanks onze late aankomst (23.45u) was Silvio in het appartement om ons een rondleiding te geven. Daarnaast deed hij alle moeite om mee te denke, ons van tips te voorzien en ons te helpen met onze bagage.
Appartement heeft 3 grote slaapkamers, een ruime keuken en twee prima badkamers. Alle ruimtes zijn voorzien van (prima) airconditioning. Appartement was schoon en voorzien van een snelle internetverbinding.
Samenvattend heel erg tevreden over het appartement.
This appartment was perfect for our stay in (website hidden) is spacious and had everything my 3 friends and I needed . It is close to the Vatican and easy walking to Rome's attractions.The tourist bus is around the corner. Silvio sent instructions on you tube about the operation of the appliances which we found great ,as well as directions to restaurants and the supermarket. This is a great appartment and we would highly recommend it.
We are a group of 5 coming from Hong Kong and it was our first time in Rome. Silvio provided us with a lot of guidance and follow up to make sure we are okay. The apartment is exactly as described, it is so close to everything and it was a real pleasure staying there.
I would highly recommend this flat to other travelers.
I could not meet Silvio in person, but he was very easy to reach and communicate with.
The apartment is exactly the same with the photos you see, only it is much bigger and the kitchen is HUGE. It is located in the city center, very near to the Vatican City and Castel Sant'Angelo, but still very quite and safe neighborhood.
Great apartment! we were 6 people and it fits perfectly for us.
We didn't meet Silvio himself but the lady he sent was very welcoming and was very helpful. Silvio sent us some useful information about the apartment and its area which was very nice of him.
The neighborhood was very (very!) nice and it was right next to the Vatican and no more than 45 minutes walk from even the farther tourist attraction of Rome (most of them was no farther then 20 minutes of slow walking).
The only downside was that the water pressure in the shower was pretty weak from time to time.
TLDR: Great place, easily fit for 6, very nice neighborhood, right next to the Vatican, very good communication with Silvio and his coworker.
