A party of sixteen of us from our local parish stayed at the Michelangelo Penthouses. All adults. We booked all three apartments. The apartments were about a 20 minute walk from the Vatican. The road on which the penthouses are situated leads directly to the Vatican.
The Penthouses: The apartments are situated on the 5th floor accessed via a lift or stairs. Two apartments are adjacent to each other. Access to them are through a shared door. Apartments go left and right each with their own door. They are both independent of each other or the doors can be left open to form one large apartment. The third apartment up up one further flight of stairs..
All apartments are large and well maintained.
The balconies are all very large and welcoming. Perfect for a nice meal or a glass of wine in the evening. Really good views of St Peters.
Kitchens are modern and well equipped. The free wi-fi was strong in all apartments. We managed to watch a boxing match via wi-fi without buffering. The beds are very low down. I don't know if that is a common thing in Rome or not.
Flavio was very friendly and welcoming as was his mother who came over each night with our breakfast for the next day. Breakfast consisted of various croissants, bread, jam, Nutella, juice and milk.
Transport: There was a bus stop just a few metres outside of the apartments. A five minute walk to either direction brought other bus options. Busses were very frequent. We did not use the trains.
There are restaurants nearby and a couple of small supermarkets. Opposite the apartment was a grocers whose prices were very reasonable particularly the alcohol.
Flavio arranged for our pick up to and from the airport at very good price.
The sixteen of us agreed if we planned another trip to Rome we would definitely stay here again.
I highly recommend it.
Fantastic! The ideal place we were looking for in Rome. We were a group of 21 (adults and children) and we rented the 3 apartments for 8 days. Only 10 minutes walk from the subway and 15 to St Peter. There is a bus stop just right by the apartments. Lots of restaurants, bars, pizzeria and take aways in the Viale Angelico area. The apartments are spacious, clean and with all ammenities. Breakfast was delivered everyday (Tea/coffee/juice/croissant and more). We enjoyed the evenings on the terraces with the spectacular view of St Peter and Monte Mario.
Thank you so much Antonella and Flavio for making our stay a memorable one!
