About this villa

In the heart of Rome, at a few steps fom St.Peter`s Basilica and the Sistine Chapel there is a charming Liberty style villa built in 1923 and recently restored. The villa ''The Pomegranate'', surrounded by a small garden, is a green oasis in the very busy center of Rome and provides a tranquil retreat to the tourist. From our two terraces, it is possible to enjoy the view of the ancient walls designed by Michelangelo and of the Vatican gardens. Our bed and breakfast offers cozy and comfortable bedrooms, equipped with private bathrooms, TV, WIFI and heating/air conditioning. Breakfast, made of natural and organic home made products, is served upon prior request (5€ per person) either in our elegant, luminous sitting room, decorated with original stucco-works, overlooking the garden, or outside in the terrace. In alternative we provide all the food necessary for a self-prepared breakfast.
Please mind that, in order to reach the apartments from the street, there is a staircase of about sixty steps.

City tax, requested by the Roman municipality, of 3,5€ per person per day will be paid in cash on arrival.

    Like being at home

    Gabrielle was a fantastic hostess... very concerned for our needs and offered a variety of “treats.” Being at the apartment felt like being at home. It was very comfortable. Our experience was very pleasant.

    Great Access to Vatican

    This location is directly across from the Vatican wall and we were able to walk to the Colosseum, Vatican, Trevi Fountain, and Spanish Steps. You do not need a rental car here if these are the sites you want to visit. The apartment was very nice and the AC was cool. The property was gorgeous, and exactly as described. Communication from the host was great.

    Hidden Gem!

    This lovely home was just the escape I needed from the busy, noisy city above. Though some have complained of the steps leading down from the street, they provide a quiet little haven free from the noise of traffic. My two hosts could not have been more gracious and open to offering their insights about not only Rome but the city I was traveling to next - Prague! If I find myself in Rome again I will definitely try to stay here once more. Thanks for having me!

    Charming host, Gabrielle

    The apartments are tucked away in terraced landings below the busy street. Across the street is the Vatican wall, making it convenient for many sites. Gabrielle arranged for airport pickup and called for taxis as needed. Looking forward to returning in the future. Elsa & Jim DeVita

  • 8.0.Very good

    It's a nice place. It was quiet and we felt as if we had the place to ourselves. Good location

    We liked the place alot, but the wi fi was weak and worked only in one spot inside the apartment. We liked the appearance and the feel of the terraces and the room. There were some basic supplies such as coffee and milk and a tasty lemon tart cake upon arrival. The contact person , Gabrielle was pleasant ,although short on time was offsite but available by telephone. The location of the apartment is great. It is right in back of the Vatican, so therefore quite easy to navigate to and from the places we visited. The stairways to the room are not for those who have difficulty with using stairways because there is quite a lot of them. The price was decent in comparison to alot of other places in the center of Rome. We used the fan to circulate the air a bit as there didn't seem to be any AC. Over all we really liked this unique spot, and it has a great charm and character . It felt like home in Rome for a few days, and greatfully , did not feel like a touristy hotel catering to the masses

    Great customer service and outstanding location

    Overall, highly recommend as the owner is extremely helpful and gracious. That alone would be why I would book here again. The bonuses are the location (3 min walk to the Vatican museum), proximity to the Metro/Subway (easy 10 walk), and ability to buy food from the local market (Mercato Trionfale).

    DO NOT STAY HERE

    Not a single picture of the rooms is where we stayed. There is a third property that we were completely surprised by. The owner left the keys on top of a gate and i had to call her to find them then be walked through how to get to where we were staying via phone call. But it was clean so we stayed. The property owner would then come into the rental while we were not there 2 days in a row. We got up early to do tours as we were only in Rome two full days. Upon returning the second day she had again been in the rental and this time had set an alarm. An alarm that was violently loud. I cannot exaggerate how loud. My ears and my mothers still hurt! This woman was able to give us a code but did not. It was broadcasted throughout the property so we couldn't escape it. She turned it off remotely but then turned it back on, making it go off again. She made up a story about a cleaner but we feel she did this in order to force us to pay the city tax in cash in person. All of which we had no problem with. She did not disclose this however until that day. I had trouble with service and didnt get the message until about 20 min before we were headed back to the property so I didn't respond. I guess that was our mistake. When i tried to talk to her about the alarm she was even more awful and i got very upset. So we actually left a day early and went to a hotel very near there called innvatican and it was only 10 euro more cleaner and no one came in our room. I would suggest not using vrbo in rome bc you aren't saving money. Avoid this terrible place either way. I have no idea how anyone has ever had a good experience here. Also the owner seems to use this property that we were given as storage so there was a ton of junk everywhere. A bunch of large furniture all locked so we had nowhere to store our things, no table to eat at or chairs to sit in. But we did have about 10 creepy pictures of a child i assume she's related to. Oh and crappy paper thin towels. This place was a real crap sandwich that kept on giving. This women should find another way to use her property bc this isnt it.

    Entgegenkommende Vermieterin

    Unseren Aufenthalt haben wir genossen. Großer Pluspunkt: Als wir uns gleich am ersten Abend ausgesperrt haben, hat sich die Vermieterin sofort auf den Weg gemacht, um uns um 21.30 Uhr (!) aufzusperren.

  • 6.0.Good

    sehr gute Lage der Wohnung, die Wohnung selbst wurde völlig überbewertet angeboten:

    Im Angebot war enthalten: 2xSchlafzimmer, 2xBadezimmer, Platz für 6 Personen, Küche und Parkplatz tatsächlich fanden wir vor: - eine Küche im Erdgeschoss /2 Stockwerke tiefer die nur einen Morgen benutzt werden konnte!!!! - nur ein Badezimmer und nicht zwei wie vereinbart!!!!!!! - das Zusatzbett war eine Zumutung weil sehr schlechte Qualität zum liegen!!!!! - für 6 Personen ist diese Wohnung nicht nutzbar!!!!!! - es gab kein Parkplatz wie angeboten, nur ein öffentlicher Parkplatz der zusätzliche Kosten verursachte!!!!!! - die Wohnung ist eine privat genutzte Wohnung: dies wurde im Angebot Nicht so dargestellt!!!!!!!!! Wir hätten eine private Wohnung niemals gemietet!!!! - Schlußendlich: verlangte die Vermieterin noch Touristenpauschale obwohl wir einen festen Pauschalpreis per Vertrag vereinbart hatten!!!!!! Dieser Vermietung war nicht seriös und nicht vertragstreu!!!!
