The apartments are well serviced and located in a suburb of Rome. (we stayed in two apartments). My husband and I stayed for a total of seven nights at the Aurelia Vatican Apartments. The apartment had everything we needed as well as laundry and ironing facilities which were essential during our two stays. We have been to Rome several times and chose to stay at this apartment because it was quieter but well serviced with a bus route at our door step and a Metro station down the street. We were very pleased we did because we could relax in the peace and quiet between our short trips into the city. The bus goes past Piazza del Popolo which is a great place to hop off and explore the Spanish Steps, the beautiful Villa Borghese and gardens as well as Via del Corso (the crowded shopping hub of Roma). Next time we are in Rome, we will be including the Aurelia apartments in our stay!

Kate and Sam were SO helpful-- it was our first time in Italy and not only did Kate sit down with us and tell us all the highlights to see and how to get there, we were also provided with a packet they put together that suggested restaurants by type of food and price as well as touring suggestions. The rooms were very nice and certainly very clean- we had a great stay here. To top it all off, I left my purse in a can in Rome and Sam was able to track it down for me. The staff here really go out of their way to help you and make your stay here the best possible. Definitely recommend !!!
My family and I spent 11 days at the Aurelia Vatican Apartments during our vacation in Aug. 2014 and we would strongly recommend it further. Sam, you called us when you realised that we were behind our arrival time and you saved us a parking lot in advance of our arrival, thanks, you are a rare gem! We won't forget that you gave us a warm welcome and every assistance we needed not only on our first night but always. This clean and well- maintained apartment is 50 meters away from the next bus stop (bus 495), 350 meters away from the Conad supermarket, 800 meters away from the Valle Aurelia Metro station and two metro stations away from Vatican. In reality, if you arrive at this apartment at night like we did, you'd think that you are in a little village at the middle of nowhere but when the day breaks, then you'd realise that you aren't but rather somewhere very serene to get back some energy. We'd always stay here when next we're in Rome. This place is home away from home!
Staff were very helpful and gave lots of good information to help our visit but the accommodation was anything but luxury. Cleaning was poor and there were holes in bedding, curtains and towels. Hated the black sheets and shower mat and the only English satellite TV channel was Bloomberg. Very disappointed.

Tranquil environment away from the noise and chaos of inner Rome. Great facilities, great hospitality.
