About This Listing
This big and elegant unit is located at the corner between Vicolo del Cedro and Vicolo della Scala.
It has a big living with 2 double sofa beds, a separated full equipped kitchen, 2 double bedrooms, 1 single bedrooms and 2 bathrooms (one unsuite with bath tube).
Trastevere is a very particular district of the historical center of Rome: quiet as a country village during the day, hot spot in the evening, with its large choice of restaurant, bar, artistic shops, trattoria.
On the same side on the river, you get Vatican and San Pietro in 15 minute walking of few #23 bus stop.
Crossing the river, you get all the rest of Rome, at walking distance.
Just around the apartment you will find all what you need: grocery, bakery, bar, pharmacy, restaurant.
The apartment is the ideal set if you like stay up till late in the weekends, as it is on the heart of Trastevere "soft" movida. If you are not into night life you will have to be tolerant with noise till late in the weekend nights. As in the rest of Trastevere, the day is very quite, like in a country village.

The apartment is ideally situated in a great area. The apartment is nicely furnished with everything you need and Davide and Francesco were very helpful as hosts.
O anfitrião foi realmente muito atencioso, nos suportou inclusive no translado para o aeroporto, responde sempre rapidamente.
Para quem tem problema para dormir quando o barulho é alto talvez se incomode com o bairro nas sextas e sábados.
We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay for the weekend. There were 8 of us and we were attending a Six Nations rugby game. The apartment was as described with 3 bedrooms and two sofa beds in the living room that were comfortable. For a group this size, we all had enough space and it was great to have two bathrooms. The neighborhood was exactly what we were looking for- lively nightlife and great bars and restaurants. Davide left a great guide of the city that even included recipes! The posting was very accurate with the noise on the streets but with the windows closed it wasn't a problem. We were arriving home late from dinner and the game so the noise didn't bother us. This is a great place for a group and the neighborhood is charming and fun!
Thanks Davide, who was always available.
The appartement was great, verry well located in Trastevere. Ideal for short stay and if you want to appreciate nightlife. The Only negative point is the sound of The bar downstairs. Thanks for The late check out last day.
There are the pictures of the flat and the reality, and in between let's say that there is a big gap... no toaster, the microwave and the oven are not working, the coffee machine is still a mystery and there was no bottle opener (by the way, we bought one that we left). Carpets were dirty.
The worst thing was the noise, we were aware of the area - a lively atmosphere, but what we experimented is beyond words. It's simple: you can only sleep 4 hours per night. The bar just in front close at 2am, time for people to really leave it's 3am and then at 7am the restaurant just under the flat will give you the impression to be in the middle of a kitchen at rush time.
In conclusion, the price is to expensive regarding the fact that you can only sleep half of the night.
Hi Adelaide, I am sorry you're not been satisfied of your stay, but let me say that the gap "your review/reality" it's bigger then "pics/reality" ;)
- coffe machine is on i's place on the kitchen (classic italian Moka + electric espresso machine)
- toaster is there
- oven is working and microwave also (on private feedback you said its plug adaptor was missing and here you wrote wasn't working)
Probably carpets were not perfect and I apologies for that. You have to consider that we can't wash deeply them at each guests change (it needed a professional external service that take few days any time), so well as courtins and sofa cover.
About the noise, the apartment name is "Charming movida" and its position on the heart of Soft movida of Trastevere is mentioned on the description also. I went over on it, telling that ti can be noisy on weekend nights. Other then informed, I think you dramatized: the one downstairs opening at 8/9 am is just a quite cafè (not a restaurant) without any kitchen and music, with people sitting at the table for a morning coffee. Not the right place if you are so sensible, I agree
Davide's apartment was perfect for our trip to Rome! Davide was very helpful with all our questions and requests and always quick to respond by phone or email. He arranged airport transfers for us. The location is amazing. Walking distance from all attractions and absolutely ideal for the evenings. There are hundreds of bars and restaurants on the doorstep. If you can only sleep in silence then you will need earplugs. There is noise from the streets but it didn't bother me. I slept just fine, it isn't too loud. For me it was worth a little bit of noise for this fantastic apartment, location and service.
Davide flat is an ideal location to base your sightseeing attack on the amazing city if Rome. It is as other reviews have written a little noisy of the evening. But generally will die down by 2am as local laws shut the surrounding bars at 2am. The flat has all the necessities to get by..I will suggest to Davide to buy a wine opener for the flat though.

About the Host, Davide & Francesco
Hey It's Davide, an italian entrepreneur, ex actor, into architecture, design, art, vintage and...animal most of all. My 2 dogs are the children I don't have. I have never liked "total Ikea" and "grandmother's apartment" that so often I see on holiday apartments market. I would like like to offer something different to my guests; some of my apartments are basic and easy, some other are much luxurious, but all of them have an own personality, that probably cannot be found in a common hotel.
Francesco is my cousin and I saw him born and grow up! He likes art, design and vintage forniture too. He is into sport also at professional level also. He is much clever then me in practical manual job, so he helps me keeping the apartments in order and welcoming the guests when I can't do that.
I expect to host respectful guests, easy going, smart enough to understand that communication and flexibility are important renting a private apartment: as traveller I know that each unit necessary has defects also other then strengths, and that the total perfection can be found at Hilton (maybe) ;)
So, I hope to host you and being in touch before, during and after your stay. If you will stay somewhere else, enjoy Rome and don't forget to visit some other wonderful place in Italy!
