We stayed for a week in Rome. The apartment was away from the business of the city's center but close to train station and bus which made getting around to the different sights fairly easy. Walking distance to the Vatican. The apartment itself was very nice, very clean and modern and included everything we needed. The washing machine was a bonus. Alberto also supplied coffee, milk and fruit and staples for cooking. He was helpful with any questions we had and we shared a wonderful dinner with him and his brother and friends at a great restaurant. They also gave us a tour of Rome at night which we would not have been able to do ourselves. We would highly recommend this apartment to anyone visiting Rome.

"Great place, location, neighbours and owner"
I have stayed in this place for 3 nights with mom and my 8 months old baby girl.
We planed to have short vacation in Rome and find a nice place to have quick access to the all sights.
The San Celestino perfectly met all our expectation.
Despite that fact that public transport is nearby the house we have reached all historical places on foot and with baby stroller. The area is very quiet and looks very safe.
In the apartment is everything you may need. Alberto (the owner) has kindly provided us with fresh fruits and even fresh milk and drinking water for the baby :) Also he were very kind and responsive during our stay.
I would definitely recommend that place to my friend (did already) and next time would like to stay there again.

"We felt like italian natives"
Alberto's apartment is exactly what you search, when doing a 3-4 day city tour. Quite but close to all interesting places - those you cannot walk are reachable by bus 64. Some meters only to walk… More

"Just all you need to enjoy your visit in Rome: kindness, quiet, good location"
Once in Rome we had a beautiful surprise: the b&b San Celestino was very close to S.Pietro and the centre, but at the same time it was so calm and quiet all around that we couldn't imagine to stay in a big town. And we slept wonderfully. Train station and bus stop are very close. The b&b is a small apartment, simple but comfortable and well equipped. The owner is very nice and friendly, you can always ask him if you need help or advice (he gave us some good suggestions and information - for example a special museum for our little girl ). So we spent a wonderful holiday in Rome and our daughter was also enthusiastic about it.

"An exceptionally comfortable, modernised apartment in a quiet Rome suburb."
We were met at San Pietro rail station by Andrea, the owner's brother, who spoke good English and was very friendly and helpful. The apartment was under 5 minutes walk from the station which also acts as the bus terminus for the number 64 bus from Termini. This bus is very frequent and passes near to alsmost all the main tourist spots ie St Peter's, Piazza Navona, Campo de Fiori, Pantheon, Piazza Venezio - so very, very convenient. The apartment met all our needs. It has been modernised to a high standard but still retaining it's Italian character. The bedroom also served as a sitting room so would best suit a small family or a couple. The king size bed was very comfortable and the linen and towels were spotlessly clean. We much appreciated the provision of fruit, milk, butter and biscuits. There was also a supply of kitchen towel, toilet paper; washing up liquid and cleaning fluids - not items you want to search out, on a three day visit! The ONLY flaw we noted was the absence of full sized mugs and a wine glass would have been good! Andrea's directions for local supermarket were great. We thoroughly enjoyed our first afternoon in Rome when we followed his tip and walked up the hill to Garibaldi's monument and breathtaking views of Rome. We then continued on down to Trastevere - winding streets full of character and colour with loads of places to eat and drink - beautiful! Our main tip would be: if you're on a budget but still want to eat in the old heart of Rome, don't eat on Piazza Navona but on the streets leading from it to Pantheon or on to Via del Corsa. There are excellent, small restaurants that are less expensive; and avoid the tourist set menu where the free drink will always be the water you asked for rather than the glass of wine! Castel S. Angelo is deffinitely worth a two hour visit if this isn't your first trip to Rome when you'll be visiting all the more famous places. Don't miss the Pantheon or St Peter's and if you can spare a whole morning then visit the Vatican museum. To get the best, first sight of the Roman Forum, climb the steps at the Capitoline Hill (behind the Victor Immanuel national monument) when you look down on the forum laid out below you, I defy you not to exclaim with awe!
