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!

Just great

  • 5 of 5

The Angel´s apartment has it all. The rooms are spacious and beautifully furnished, in the kitchen you have everything you need, and more. The bed in the bedroom is excellent, the bathroom is light and fresh. And everything works very well, the wifi, the stove in the kitchen, the washing machine ( very handy) the 2 TV-sets. The apartment is also very clean and you will have lots of towels, blankets and pillows

The kind signora Elena was there to welcome me in the evening and showed me everything I needed to know.

And next morning it was easy to get to the closest supermarket, and there are several supermarkets in the neighborhood, also more luxury ones (Castroni) but also a wide range of good restaurants, cafés and "gelaterias".

The location is superb as well, the Vatican is just a short walk away, and the "centro storico" is just over the bridge. You can easily walk everywhere from the apartment.

Furthermore, the pick up service is more than great, you don´t need to have all the hassle with buses or metro to get to Termini and then to Fiumicino

I hade a wonderful stay, much due to this just great apartment.

If you decide to book the Angel´s apartment you will most certainly not regret it. It is the best and I do highly recommend it

Wonderful home in Rome

  • 5 of 5

It took us 5 min to pick Silvio's apartment and were not disappointed. It had everything we could want or need for our 8 day's in Rome. The location was central to all the attractions and cool neighborhoods. We used the driver Silvio arranged for us for the pick up from the airport, made that very convenient. All of the furnishings were wonderful and modern. Loved the morning sun on the balcony. They had instructions for close grocery locations and restaurant suggestions (Splendor for pizza and burgers). Will recommend this apartment to our friends and would stay here again.

We returned to Rome for the second leg of our round trip from the States after visiting other areas of Italy. Exhausted, we were met by Elena who was very kind, patient, and helpful. The apartment is very safe, modern, clean, and comfortable. While the terrace does overlook the park, it is also above a lot of traffic. That is not to say it is not spectacular, it just wasn't the peaceful ambiance I thought we would get. We walked only a block to catch the bus to the airport the next morning; only 6 euros a person. That was great! We highly recommend this apartment.

Great Location, Clean and comfy!

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED this apartment. It had everything we needed and the only issue we had was the coffee pot. I told Silva and immediately he had a brand new one sent up. We used the driver that Silva set us up with to get to and from the airport, made it convenient. The bed was comfy and hot water was HOT. View was wonderful from the terrace and we enjoyed sitting out there morning and evening. Yes we would stay here again and recommend this apartment to our friends. The apartment was clean and well maintained. Grocery store and shopping on Cola street very convenient. Close walk to the Vatican and St Peters Basilica.

10 days in Rome

  • 5 of 5

From the moment of enquiry, through booking, arrival, the stay and the departure everything was first class. An amazing, modern apartment just behind the Castel Sant Angelo in a wonderful 19th century building, loved the lift, within walking distance of most things, including the metro(15 minutes)and cab stand for trips farther afield. Easy access to grocery stores, wine shop, cafe for morning coffee( try Sciasaciacaffe) restaurants( E Cucina Roma, La Fraschetta di Castel Sant Angelo, La Focaccia)and farmacia. Air conditioning worked well which is a must in Italy. Well equipped kitchen with just grocery shopping needed to cover breakfast if you don't go out to eat. After one tiring day exploring we just had cheese, bread and wine on the little balcony overlooking the Castel Sant Angelo and marvelled at Rome traffic.Never got to meet Silvio except via email( had a family emergency) but he was very responsive, including delivering our boarding passes since a previous guest had absconded with the printer cables for the computer. We walked to Vatican, Pantheon, Piazza Navona.......Rome is a great city for walking, especially in the evening along the Tiber! Used the metro for Colosseum, Ostia, National Museum, Capitoline Museum, La Domus Romane, Nero's Palace etc. and cab to the Galleria Borghese, even took the metro to Termini for a day trip by train to Florence! Used Silvio's help for car to and from the airport to make the trip smoother. Used his guide Alessandra for our tour of the Colosseum and Forums, she was great, informative, friendly and accomodating. We would definitely stay here again. Only negative was we never really figured out the washer/dryer but that was probably our Canadian ignorance of the appliance.
