"Loved the location, loved Rome - a great experience."
Adrian Apartment was not available for the time we required so the owner, Silvio, offered us another of his apartments, St Angle Apartment, in the same building. It was a little smaller but had comfor… More
thank you so much for your review, just to specify that the 2 apartments have the same exact measure of 50square meters, only the space inside is slightly organized in a different way. saint angel apartment has a bigger room for instance.

We found the apartment to be quite comfortable and extremely quite. The location was close to several grocery stores, resturants and stores. Bus stops to major sites were several blocks away as was a taxi stand. It is located about 15 minute walk to the Vatican, and about 15-20 minutes from Plaza Navona. We would certainly rent this apartment again if we were to return to Rome and would certainly recommend it to friends.

"Would highly recommend this quiet, convenient, charming apartment with an extremely helpful host."
It was hard to believe the description of this apartment as 'silent' given that it is very convenient for the Vatican, the centre of Rome and tourist sites, but that's exactly what it was. We heard no evening/night sound from the neighbours or the street, just the lift going up and down during the day!
We walked nearly everywhere fromt the apartment but it is especially near the Vatican and its museums, and a major shopping street. We did take the hop on/off open top bus one day but it was expensive and not great - the commentary was not in sinc with what we were seeing, the route starts at Termini station so it sits there for 15 mins - a bit tedious unless you want to go there, and we felt we were wasting time waiting for buses when we could be walking, though we are reasonably fit.
The apartment has separately controlled air con in the sitting room and bedroom, wifi and a computer with printer - actually pretty useful if you want to book and print tickets to museums etc. and avoid queues.
Our host, Silvio, put himself out to be helpful and had produced maps of good restaurants, supermarkets, sights and ice cream shops/cafes nearby.
The apartment has a lovely old dark wood lift, so great to lug bags upstairs or if you can't manage the marble staircase. Myself and my 18 year old daughter had a fantastic holiday. I knew Rome would be full of beautiful old buildings and works of art but I hadn't expected it to be relaxing too. It was, thanks to a great apartment with all the information and help we needed to make the most of it straight away. Thank you Silvio.
I would also recommend an airport transfer but I gather there are some rogues out there. We used a company called Rome Airport Transportation. Their website doesn't look much, but the service was great with the driver waiting for us at the airport and early on the way back. The price was fixed and you pay the driver, so if he hadn't turned up at the airport, we wouldn't have lost anything. That gave us confidence to book on the way back too - a decision which gave us an extra half day in Rome not lugging our bags across the city.

"A haven of peace and tranquility on the city's doorstep."
We had a lovely time staying in the St. Peter appartment. The rooms and furniture were every bit as attractive as described and the location was within easy walking distance of most of Rome's many attractions. Silvio was always within reach by phone, should we have had any problems , and was friendly and attentive throughout our stay. The flat faces an inner courtyard decorated with trees and shrubs and is peaceful and quiet, something which is probably quite rare in such a busy city. We would definitely recommend the St. Peter appartment.

We spent 13 days in St.Peter apartments. It was our second visit to Italy and the best one!
The apartment was amazing, comfortable and very well equipped. Location is perfect in terms of sight-seeing (Castel St.Angelo, St.Peter's Cathedral , Vatican museums, Trastevere, etc), all the things necessary for travellers are very close to the building (taxi, supermarket, pharmacies, cafes, restaurants, etc.). Silvio and Elena were very kind to provide us with all the information we needed.
Silvio and Elena, thank you very much for our wonderful vacations.

"The Perfect Roman Apartment"
The apartment is completely renovated and perfectly appointed with all the necessary amenities to make a travelers' stay comfortable, convenient, relaxing and enjoyable. The apartment is very clean, very well-maintained, and is secure. It is conveniently located near the Vatican, the Old City, shopping, restaurants, churches - all are within a few minutes walk. The building is pleasant and has a doorman. Silvio is the perfect host and gentleman. He's genuinely warm and engaging, friendly, helpful and accommodating, and immediately responsive. He's trustworthy and wonderful to deal with. You will want to return once you stay!

"Excellent apartment and location"
The apartment was great and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It was clean, quiet, very secure and within walking distance of St. Peter's, The Vatican and several lovely restaurants. The owner was incredibly helpful and recommended several sights and places to eat. We would definitely recommend this apartment and hope to return ourselves in future.

"Perfecto apartamento en Roma"
El piso es estupendo. Su situación inmejorable. Puedes ir andando a todos los sitios. El Coliseo está un poco mas lejos pero un autobús en la puerta de casa te deja a cinco minutos . Todo funcionaba muy bien (importante el aire acondicionado con el calor de Roma). La casa es silenciosa y se duerme de maravilla.Alrededor de la casa tienes supermercados, restaurantes,tiendas...Silvio es muy amable y está dispuesto a ayudarte en todo lo que le pidas. Te hace la estancia muy agradable. Si volvemos a Roma volveremos a este apartamento sin dudar

"Great location, great owner"
Three of us stayed here for 5 nights. It was everything advertised, including being quiet and spotless and an easy walk to everything we wanted to see. The local fresh vegetable, meat and fish market is a 5 minute walk. This is the real deal: individual vendors in a covered pavillion. We cooked two of our dinners and all of our breakfasts to save money and enjoyed it thoroughly.
I have rented apartments in many cities, and would rate this with the tops for value and location.
I should add that Silvio arranged our taxi back to the airport in the middle of the night and could not have been more helpful.
