Trastevere Twins'House - The "Ripa"

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Vicolo di San Francesco a Ripa, Rome, Lazio 00153, Italy

We are located in Trastevere, one of the main jewels of Rome.
The area is known to be the biggest archeological place located inside of a urban space, and it's also a completely pedestrian area.
Just walking outside of your door you'll find plenty of typical restaurants, pizzerias, pubs, cinemas, artisans shops and the widest flea market you can find in Rome: Porta Portese. It's like being in a cute ancient little town, with a charm impossible to find elsewhere. Trastevere is also known to be the heart of the roman nightlife, and it offers every kind of holiday you're searching for: from relax to fun.
The building is located few meters from Viale Trastevere and Piazza San Cosimato, in a lovely tiny street. It was built in late '800 and it presents the typical structure of Medieval houses, with thick walls which help cooling the temperature in summertime, and keep the heat inside of the house in the winter season.
Our 45 square meters' suite has been recently renovated to offer you every kind of comfort.
You'll have light in every room, thanks to the big windows facing the neighborhood and the private cloister of the building, in order to assure you the proper privacy.
The suite is composed by
a lobby with a window that faces the lovely private cloister
a kitchen where you can find all that you need to prepare a delicious italian breakfast and every comfort you desire if you want to cook lunch or dinner (dishes, pots, coffee maker, electric oven, kettle)
a wide living room furnished with sofa and a big dining table (up to 6 people dining)
a lovely bedroom with a spacious cabinet
a tiny but lovely bathroom, where you can find the original ceiling from the late '800 and a real porthole as window
Linen and towels, central heating, ironing board and iron, vacuum cleaner, television set-top box and media player are also available.
The house may comfortably host from 2 to 4 people, thanks to the double sofa bed.
From the 6th floor you can also appreciate the amazing view of Rome, while having breakfast on the terrace.
In front of the entrance there's also a laundry and a parking, for the guests who want to use their car to visit Rome. The position of the house, however, allows you to reach every interest place, from Navona Square to Pantheon, from St.Peter Basilica to the Spanish Steps, simply by walking.
By reservation, we can also offer a taxi service, from the airports of Rome to the center and viceversa, exclusively for our guests.

  • We had a very enjoyable stay at the Twins' House. The flat is on the ground floor and the main room seems larger than in the photo. It is well located for central Rome and an easy walk to the centre of everything. The bus and tram stop are 2 mins walk. Bus direct to Termini (the main train station). Trastevere is full of restaurants and squares. There is a small grocery at the end of the street and a large supermarket (Conad) across the road. There is a Taverna outside the window and a nightclub with live music in the block. I am a light sleeper and was able to sleep soundly with my earplugs. The kitchen and bathroom are compact. Simona was very helpful and friendly, settling us in well.
    Thank you Simona

  • We stayed at the Twin's House for 4 days and we are highly recommended this wonderful apartment. Simona was very nice and helpful. Nothing was missing and we felt very comfortable. The aparment is very central, we didn't need to buy bus tickets, because everything was reachable by foot. Trastevere is a marvelous place to stay; there are a lot of bars, cafés and restaurants. All in all, it was a very good choice to stay at Simonas apartment. Thank you very much!

  • We stayed at the Trastevere Twins' House for a week, and overall the experience was really positive: the house is bright, spacious (definitely for Roman standards) and well equipped (including basic foodstufs like sugar, salt, coffee, etc, - we thought this was really great, not always the case). It actually looks even nicer in reality than in the pictures!
    The appartment is in a nice, untouristy bit of Trastevere, close to shops, restaurants and coffeebars, and with the tramstop just around the corner.
    Simona is really helpful and thoughtful (for instance, she provided us with a highchair for our daughter without us even asking).
    Only minor downside: there is a jazzbar close to the house which gets a bit noisy on Saturdays - but only on Saturdays, we didn't have any trouble the rest of the week.
    Overall: highly recommended!

  • This is the perfect place to stay in Rome. You can walk everywhere in Rome from the apartment and Trastavere has excellent cafes, restaurants and bars just metres away. The place is very cute! Highly recommend.

  • We spent 4 night at the Twins' House and it was wonderful! Excellent location, close to many restaurants and bars, and walking distance from the major sites. The apartment itself is not only super clean, but also full of light, and designed perfectly. Simona was extremely nice and helpful. Bottom line- highly recommended!

  • 시모나는 정말 친절했어요~
    "Ripa" 근처에 도착했을때 집을 잘 못찾았는데 시모나가 웃으며 데리러 나와주었어요~ ^^
    거실은 정말 넓었고 침실도 아늑하고 좋았어요~
    버스정류장도 가깝고 까르푸도 있어서 참 편리하고 좋았어요.

  • We really enjoyed our stay in this nice flat in a lovely area of Rome.

  • We loved our stay at the Twins' House. It felt like living in a real neighborhood, and was the perfect base for exploring central Rome. There are frequent bus and trams on via Trastevere just one block away. At the corner of Via Trastevere and Via di San Francisco a Ripa there is a wonderful bakery and deli called Compagnia de Pane where we got fantastic bread and deli meats to make some delicious meals. There is a larger grocery store next door to the bakery, and a Carrefours a few doors from the apartment. The only caution would be the noise level. On a few nights the blues club (Big Mama) and outdoor dining for the. Greek restaurant on the. Vicolo were a bit noisy for those who might want to turn in early. However, we thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of our stay and highly recommend this location. Simona was very responsive, and so warm and gracious.
