Apartment Owner's Notes and Description
Gracchi Holiday Home is located in one of the most central areas of Rome: the Prati neighbourhood. During ancient Roman times, the territory of current day Rione Prati was rich of vineyards and groves called Prata Neronis, that is, Nero’s Fields. In the late 1800s, the urban layout of the neighbourhood was designed so as to avoid that any of the newly built streets would face the nearby St. Peters Cathedral, attesting to the tense relations between the new Italian state and the Vatican. Because of this, all street names were called after ancient Roman personalities as well as heroes of the Italian Risorgimento.

The recently renovated 120 square metres apartment is on the second floor of an elegant 19th century building with elevator. It features a large living and dining room, a fully equipped kitchen, two double bedrooms with queen sized beds and two bathrooms, the first with a bathtub and the second with a shower. In the bright and spacious living room there is a large double sofa-bed which allows the apartment to comfortably host up to six guests. The apartment includes air conditioning, TV and Wi Fi access.

Nearby attractions at 5-10 minutes walk include St. Peters, the Sistine Chapel and the Vatican museums, the fort of Castel Sant’Angelo, whereas the historic centre of the city, including Piazza del Popolo and the Spanish Steps are at 15-20 minutes walk away. The apartment is also at 3 minutes walk away from the metro stop Ottaviano, from which other Roman attractions such as the Coliseum and the Roman Forum can be reached in 15 minutes. Prati also boasts among the city’s best shopping and restaurant areas.

Extra cleaning services available on request at 15 euro and hour minimum 2 hours at a time, to be requested after the booking.

The apartment is very comfortable and in a very good location in Rome.  Nearby there are lots of restaurants, food markets and shopping.  Bruno was a great host, communication was easy and efficient. Will stay in this apartment again.

We went in Rome with our 3 children.
This is a great appartement : there's a lot of place, it is modern and really nice. Moreover, it is located in a very good place in Rome, 2mn from metro stations "Lepanto" and "San Pietro" and less than 10mn by feet from the Vatican.
The welcome by the owner is very well organized and he is very available. Good thing, he organizes the transport from and to the airport, which is really useful !
We warmly recommend this appartment.

This apartment defied our expectations! It's roomy, beautiful, quiet (yes, compared to the rest of Rome), is in a great neighborhood that is residential enough to serve your basic needs (a terrific farmers' market is only blocks away), is close to all kinds of public transit (we took the subway often) and also close enough to walk easily into the centro. Though it's moments away from  Saint Peter's, you don't get any of the crowds associated with a tourist area. Wi-fi, TV, and washer all work great--the kitchen was fully stocked, and we cooked every night. Bruno is a gracious host (thanks so much for the Easter bread and salume!), and Giulia, who greeted us, made sure we had everything we needed. Both of them secured us and our friends transportation to and from Fiumicino, which was so much better than paying taxi prices or negotiating Termini. Grazie mille, Bruno e Giulia! We're already planning our next visit!

We have just spent Christmas in Rome and can recommend the apartment wholeheartedly. It is spacious, comfortable, well equipped and located close to the main tourist sites. There is excellent shopping and eating nearby and local public transport is good. Everything was ready for us on our arrival - there were supplies in the fridge and the flat was warm and welcoming. Bruno is a most gracious and helpful host who couldn't have been more kind. In all,this is a first rate holiday rental and we are looking forward to returning soon.

When booking an apartment online, you read reviews, look at photos, and hope for the best.  There is always doubt until you actually step foot inside the place.  I hope this review removes that doubt.  This apartment in Rome was beautiful! 
Julia was waiting when we arrived, brought us inside, and was very thorough in going over everything and ensuring we were situated before leaving.  The apartment has huge windows which allow tons of light and fresh air inside, the kitchen was very functional with gas burners, the couch enormous, and the place was spotless.  The bathrooms were big and also spotless.  
The apartment is on the 3rd floor, which is considered the 2nd in Europe.  It does have a lift.  When you walk outside immediately to your left is a cool litte cafe which has awesome cappuccino and if you walk a block and a half further in the same direction, there is an amazing market where you can buy any food you'd need to preapre a meal or just have snacks for the apartment.  
One thing to be weary of is the street noise below. 
If I ever make it back to Rome, I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

Me and my friends have stayed in Bruno's apartment in Rome for a week. Everything was excellent. We can highly recommend this place. The location is fantastic, you don't have to use the public transport, you can reach all the attractions by foot. The apartment is very beautiful and spacious, there is everything you may need for comfortable stay. The house and the surrounding area are great, there are many shops, restaurants and markets. Bruno is very pleasant host. He helped us very much several times. He helped to organize a meeting at the airport, gave us his recommendations for visiting some places, provide us with some food and snacks. We can highly recommend Bruno and his apartment for Rome's visitors. It was a fantastic stay. Thank you Bruno.

Lovely place to stay in Rome - Super convenient location to walk to the key places in the center and very well connected for those who prefer to tube/bus it. The flat is wide and very nicely organized, in a classy building, simple and neat decoration. We just had a wonderful time there and I can only highly recommend the place, with a big thank you to Bruno the owner and his wife, who explained everything in details to us and was ready to help during our stay. A big thank you too to Raffaella at Citiesreference for her lovely help.

This apartment in Rome is very cozy. It is located in a very pleasant neighborhood. Bruno, the landlord, is a very nice person. Very thoughtful
Debra from United States of America

The apartment is in great condition, spacious, and in a good location near the Vatican and metro. Bruno is a wonderful host and took me to get a SIM card when my luggage was lost which was very kind and extremely helpful. This is a place you can be comfortable and while some mentioned the street noise, I think any place in the city will be the same. A vegetable market is a block away, so is a grocery store and an ATM is right around the corner. It is a great place to stay in Rome- thanks for all your help Bruno!

Hello to all,
the apartment was fantastic and we felt very comfortable. Our host was very accommodating and helpful. A beautiful old building with superb facilities and ten minutes walk from St Peter. Market Hall, two supermarkets, restaurants, coffee shops nearby. We parked 100 meters from the apartment in Prati Parking.
Everything worked perfectly and we immediately fell in love with the city. What more could you want.

Прекрасное расположение, рядом с Ватиканом. Квартира в точности такая, как в описании. Уровень шума в ней действительно средний, т.к. под окном оживленная улица, машины и мотоциклы слышны. Отдыхом полностью удовлетворены

Très bel appartement très bien équipé et très bien situé. Un seul défaut : on entend beaucoup la circulation de la rue.

Spacious and fairly new apartment. Conveniently located to the Vatican, shops, metro and markets.
Bruno, the owner and Sonia were extremely accomodating to our needs. We would stay here again without hesitation. In fact cannot wait to come back.

Clean and spacious apartment in what I would call the business area of Rome, still very central, near metro, buildings I'd say late 800's beg 900's, good atmosphere, plenty of cafés and restaurants. Recommended.
