About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath

A spacious, comfortable, secure apartment well situated on the third floor of an elegant ‘19th century building with elevator at Via Crescenzio n° 19, 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 a queen size bedroom (italian matrimoniale mattress), a living room with a very comfortable double sofa-queen size-bed, a bathroom with shower. The fully kitchen is equipped with a dishwasher, washing machine, coffee-/espresso machine, gas stove with oven, fridge/freezer unit, toaster, hot water boiler as well as all the other necessary appliances.

pc available with printer

The apartment has air conditioning in the bed room and in the living room (daikin mini splits, great quality and functioning), parquet, washing machine, dishwasher. oven, safe box, LCD TV/Sat international channels. ADSL & Wi-Fi internet connection keeps you in touch with the world a pc is also available if u need it, and the mattress is high quality!

Combination lock without any key. That’s place is very quiet and safe at night too. An ideal residence for one couple or a family of 5 wishing (One more bed can be added) to enjoy either. short or long stays.

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, on visiting the comments on the listing #247364, 359822, 362568, 468953

Guestbook comments from the owner

This apartment was perfect for a stay in Rome with my mother for a week. The apartment looks just like the pictures, it is sunny and beautiful. The beds and bathroom were also very nice and comfortable and the location is great and looks right over Saint Angelo's Castle! I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone looking for a nice place to stay in Rome. Additionally, Silvio was extremely helpful and assisted us in getting a car to and from the airport. He was always there to answer questions and left a lot of information about the area that we got upon arrival. No complaints about this one!

Convenient Location, Modern and Secure Apartment

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed watching the crazy Italian drivers whiz by in front of the apartment! You can see the Vatican from the very narrow balcony where coffee in the morning and wine in the evening was enjoyed. It was nice being in a neighborhood and walking everywhere. The metro/train is a short walk away as are convenience stores and restaurants. The apartment is equipped with wi-fi and modern appliances. We did not cook in the apartment but fyi, the oven is a microwave, not a standard oven. Highly recommend this flat. Suggest that the kitchen come with paper towels and napkins. Owners were good communicators.

The apartment is clean and cute, very close to Vatican City. Close to great restaurants and shops. It has a great view of the park and Castel Sant'Angelo, which is a must visit.

Silvio was great and help us arranged transportation to the airport for a super early flight out of Rome.

Great experience overall, we had a lovely time

Overall, we had a very nice stay. The walls were a little thin and I was forced to wear earplugs.

  • 4 of 5

The flat was nice and clean with all the conveniences you would need. Suggestions for enhancing your visit were organized in a binder and very helpful as they covered a potpourri of topics. The flat is centrally located with easy access to points of interest. My wife and I would certainly stay at this location again.

Wonderful Location and View

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for our needs.

It is located in a wonderful neighborhood--good restaurants and places to buy Italian pastries and necessities nearby.

The balcony was a plus---coffee in the morning and wine in the evening.

It is close to The Vatican and across from Castel Sant'Angelo. Even though we're retired, the Pantheon and other sites were within easy walking distance.

There are also many churches within walking distance and they are full of beautiful art.

Bed was comfortable and the apartment had all the kitchen items and dishes we needed.

Silvio generously offered help provide info re tours if we needed it. While we didn't take him up on tour info, he happily offered to get us a driver to FCO, and that was very helpful and much appreciated.

We would definitely stay at this apartment again
