Holiday Home SPQR: A Special Place for Special Guests

Family-friendly Rome apartments in Rome Historic Centre, near St. Peter's Square

SPQR is a safe place: the apartment undergoes a complete and certified sanitization process before every check-in and for further safety is kept closed 48h after every check-out. Full information is supplied to each guest after reservation.

SPQR is located in downtown Rome, and is a place where you’ll really feel at home.

Quiet and comfortable, spacious and well equipped (Wi-Fi, air conditioning, PC corner and much more), Holiday Home SPQR offers a large living room where you can spend a pleasant time relaxing in good company, a large and fully equipped kitchen, two bathrooms and two large bedrooms from which you’ll enjoy exceptional views: one overlooks the Cathedral of St. Catherine of Alexandria and the other St. Peter’s Basilica in Vatican City.
With the large (140x190cm) sofa bed in the living room, SPQR can comfortably host 5 adults or 4 adults and 2 kids.

Thanks to all of this, SPQR is perfect for both short and long stays, and is an ideal place to spend either a holiday with family and friends or as a business apartment.

SPQR is amid a neighbourhood only steps away from the centre, but far from the crowds and confusion: a world apart, isolated in its serenity, as if it were a small village far away from the din of Roman life; a mixture of eclectic and even a bit cluttered architecture, but definitely unusual and authentic.

SPQR, from its high position over Monte del Gallo’s hill, is set in the midst of such a special tranquil atmosphere but, quite incredibly, it is very near the old town centre and Vatican City: St. Peter’s Dome is just 600m away as the crow flies, and the stroll to the biggest and most famous cathedral in the world is within everyone’s reach.

Those who can and would like to visit the whole city centre by foot will be able to do so without problem, walking to Trastevere through the Ghetto and Tiber Island, or reaching the Pantheon, Navona Square, Trevi Fountain and Spanish Steps.
Those instead who prefer using public transport will find the Roma San Pietro train station right outside the Holiday Home SPQR door, and will be able to choose between bus no. 64 (which crosses the city centre on its way to Termini Station), and a train that in just two stops offers connections to the Subway and Bus city networks, reaching the city centre with a single ticket (named BIT, costing 1,50€ and valid for 100 minutes on the city stretches of all regional trains, busses and subways).

The apartment is located on the third floor (lift available). Please note 18 steps have to be walked up to the building entrance from the street.

SPQR provides 2 bedrooms, each with 2 very large single beds (90x200cm) that can be prepared as King Size beds as you wish, just let us know in advance your preferences. In the sunny and spacious living room, a big and comfortable sofa bed can accommodate 2 kids or 1 adult guest.

At SPQR you'll find a Home Book with useful info on local shops and a list of restaurants and typical places that I hope you appreciate.
My website provides further info about home appliances (FAQ pages) on top of advices and agreements with useful suppliers (BLOG pages).

From both Fiumicino (FCO) and Ciampino (CIA) airports, the fastest and most comfortable way is a private limousine: 50,00€ for up to 3 people with luggage and 65,00€ or up to 6 people with luggage. The driver will wait for you at the arrivals gate inside the airport holding a sign with your name, and will take you directly to Holiday Home SPQR.
From Fiumicino, a public taxi costs 48,00€ (officially approved by Rome Municipality), while from Ciampino the fare is 30,00€. We advise you to check if the driver applies such a price prior to getting into the taxi.

Free parking is available just at the home door. If needed, a private parking can be found at 290mt.

When at home, please be quiet between 2:00 and 4:00 pm and at night between 11pm and 7am.
No parties please.
If you smoke, please go on one of the balconies and close the door after you.

Please note that data of your IDs will have to be input on the State Police's website, so kindly accept that the person welcoming you at check-in takes pictures of all your IDs (children included).

Schedule and temperatures of heating and air conditioning are managed by myself from remote, please let me have your preferences and I will setup the systems according to your desire.

As I live far away, I'm sorry I'll not be able to come to SPQR for welcoming you. But never mind: I have friends leaving nearby who will do it at my place. Before your arrival I will inform name and contacts of the friend who will check you in. Moreover you'll find my private number into the Home Book at SPQR.

Check-out is very easy: the door is self-locking, so after checking that all windows, water taps, lights, aircon and home appliances are off, just leave the home keys on the table and leave.
Guest accommodations at this apartment offer air conditioning. Rooms open to balconies or patios. Accommodations all include kitchens. Bathrooms include showers and bidets.

4/5 Good

A spacious, modern apartment convenient for most of the sites
We very much enjoyed our stay at this spacious, modern apartment with nice views. The apartment has every convenience you could ask for on a short stay. Main points are: - communications with the owner and her friend who introduced us to the apartment were quick and efficient - the apartment is quite convenient for most of the central sites. The no. 64 bus service from the station takes you near to the main sites across the river in the centre of the city. - the apartment is clean, spacious and modern. The beds are comfortable and the noise from the train station is hardly noticeable with all the windows being double glazed. - our only reservation was with the local area. Personally we did not enjoy it as much as some other areas of the city we have stayed in. There is really not much in the immediate area in the way of decent restaurant options or bars/cafes. Not to say there are not any. You are close to Trastevere though if you are willing to take a taxi/Uber.

5/5 Excellent

Excellent property and location
The property was in great condition and very clean. Everything in the unit was functional. Cristina, the woman who checked us in was very friendly and a virtual fountain of useful information. Location is right next to a cross-town bus stop and the St Peter train station, making it easy to access many areas of Rome. Unit has double paned windows, however the trains are still audible, but did not significantly disturb us.

5/5 Excellent

Look no further
This vacation stay here exceeded all expectations. From the initial communications at booking to the late checkout requested. Rita is great host and truly extended every resource to make our stay amazing. The property was extremely well maintained and the pictures don’t do justice. 5 of 5 for cleanliness. We loved the location. We loved the initial walk through by Cristina, who kindly met us even after our four plus hour delay at the airport.... Truly cannot underestimate the help this was to knowing the unit and also knowing how to get around town. We wouldn’t hesitate coming back, we are actually hoping the opportunity present itself in the future. Thank you indeed for opening up your property.

Rome apartment
Great check in process and condo was comfortable.

3/5 Okay

Stay in Rome
The location is quit far from the things you would do in Rome. It is also next to the metro so was quit noisy and not as safe as I would normally choose
