Question ID: 727328
The number of apartment sites when I search for "Rome Apartments" is
overwhelming.  I've tried emailing with our request for a two bedroom
apartment with internet service near the Vatican for two weeks in
June, but have not been getting good responses back.  So far, we only
have one real option -- and I can't believe there aren't more choices
given the volume of apartments for rent in the city.

I'm looking for an agent, travel consultant, or apartment brokerage
service that can do the research for us and provide apartment options
- we'd be happy to pay for the results.  Please find services or
agents for us to contact, preferably with contact name, email, phone,
and web site address.

Thank you!

Hi  neoaugustus-ga ,

You have a wonderful trip in store, and I hope you can get the
apartment of your wishes from one of the following agencies.  I
examined many of the apartments listed at each agency, and I note that
many fill your requirements in every way except they don't list
internet access.  Of course, an agency may be able to help you in that

In addition to the information you asked for, I am giving you a site
for each that shows the apartments they are renting. The telephone
numbers are listed with country code followed by city code (if any)
and telephone number.

Here are the agencies:


Address: Gasser GbR, Inhaber Eleonore und Bernd Gasser13505
Berlin,Scharfenberger Straße 2
Tel: 30-43671417 
Fax: 30-43671419

Don't be put off by the Berlin address.  This agency has apartment
listings in Rome.

An example of what they offer:


Contact page:
Tel: 39 (06)  9905513
     39 (06) 99320047
     39 (06) 9905199
Fax: 39 (06) 23328717

This agency has many listings including 79 (on the website) in the Vatican area:



This agency has a map on its website showing the location of the
apartments in its listings.  You can see by the map that you could
easily stay across the Tiber and be within walking distance from St.
Peter's and the Vatican.


Tel  39.06.45472549 and 39.06.68210776

The B&B Center has plenty of apartments.  You can see some at:


Tel: 34 933 017 678

The website comes from Spain.  It has thumbnail pictures of their
properties in Rome at the above website.


This site does not list any phone numbers, but has a "contact us"
within the site.  I listed it for you because their apartments look
very good, and I saw one with high speed internet access:

I'd like to suggest that  you will have more choices if you will
accept an apartment  outside the immediate Vatican zone.  Rome has a
central area from which you could choose, and be able to walk to the
Vatican or take a short bus or metro ride.

Here are the some names of nearby zones or streets that are easily
walkable: Trevi, Campo de'Fiorii, Via Coronari, Piazza Farnese, Via
Governo Vecchio, Panteone, Piazza Navona, Via Ottaviano.

You could go a little further afield to the Piazza di Spagna or the
Piazza del Popolo areas which are just a few metro stops away from the

I hope you find this information useful.  I used to live in Rome and I
love the city.

Have a great trip,

Beware!   Will not refund deposit due.   Will not reply to emails.   I
reserved an apartment for 4 adults, and was assured it would
accommodate 4 adults.   Luckily, several months before our trip, my
wife was looking at the website photos and said.  I only see photos of
a 2nd bedroom, showing a bunk bed with a crib under it.   After
emailing them, they confirmed that this apt could only accommodate 2
adults and 2 children, not 4 adults.  They were unable to find us
satisfactory accommodations.  I asked for refund, waited several
weeks, emailed again and got this reply. ?I'm sorry I didn't know you
hadn't been refunded yet.  All I can do is forward your messages to
Kind regards, Sara.  I emailed Mr Refund many times over 4 month
period ? no reply, despite my threat to give them bad reviews
everywhere.  So?here I go.
