Location: Trastevere is an old and typically Roman neighborhood situated in the heart of Rome. The most appealing trait of the locale is its character: the popular Roman atmosphere with a cosmopolitan and modern flavor. While strolling along these tiny, medieval streets, you can palpably feel its unique athmosphere! We recommend a drink in the Piazza of Santa Maria in Trastevere, a roman lunch at the restaurant ‘Checco il carettiere‘, and an aperitif at ‘Freni e frizioni‘.

Had an amazing time in Rome and in this apartment. The terrace is absolutely brilliant for chilling out between long walks around central Rome. The house is a perfect size for a couple and the layout is great. The location is ideal for walking to all of the sights and there are plenty of delicious restaurants nearby to choose from. I would definitely recommend. Lorenzo and his team were very useful and I would certainly use them again.
Super quartier très vivant avec beaucoup de petits cafés, restaurants et bars . Idealement situé !
Pour l'appartement, la terrasse est très agreable et grande offrant une belle vue. Nous n'avons pas eu l'occasion de rencontrer Lorenzo mais Mr honey et son équipe très réactive en cas de problème.
Le quartier est fantastique, en plein coeur de Trastevere, et de la vie "trasteverina", à deux pas de Piazza Trilussa et donc du Ponte Sisto.
L'appartement est plus petit que je ne l'imaginais à partir des photos, mais la terrasse donne tout son intérêt à l'appartement... C'est donc le lieu idéal pour séjourner pendant les beaux jours.
This place is amazing! The terrace on the roof is a great place to have breakfast in the morning or sit in the evening and watch the sunset. The neighborhood is very lively with great restaurants all around. The only trouble we had was that the laundry at the apartment was broken when we arrived, so you may want to ask if it has been repaired if you are expecting to do a wash.
Magnifique appartement situé au coeur du Trastevere, un quartier populaire superbe et pittoresque, qui regorge de trattorias et de petit cafés. Il est propre, très agréable et bien décoré, on se sent vraiment comme chez soi. La terrasse est merveilleuse et offre une vue sans pareil sur les toits de Rome. Je recommande vivement.
Trastevere was a great location for our 15 days in Rome.
This property is managed by Lorenzo’s company, (website hidden). I highly recommend booking the car service with Lorenzo. The service is door to door so you won’t be pulling your rolling bags on the cobblestone. We were met promptly by Honey with the keys to the apartment.
The location and the terrace are spectacular. Truly stunning views. In addition, having an outdoor shower was great to use during the hot, sunny afternoon. The location was ideal with many shops and restaurants all in easy walking distance. Vicolo del Cinque is a heavily walked street and very festive at night. But don’t worry, the apartment is quiet.
Unfortunately, those are the only highlights to this property.
The first disappointment was finding a hypodermic needle on the top shelf of the medicine cabinet. While it was unused and still in its sterile wrapping, it did not make any sense to why the cleaners would not remove this from the prior guests’ stay.
The kitchen is honestly not a proper kitchen. The layout is simply poor. Try making coffee in the morning and you will immediately know how inadequate this kitchen is. The kitchen seems to be outfitted from a really bad stateside garage sale. Not practical to cook just one meal during our 15 day stay. Our running joke about the kitchen was having only one dish towel to be found in the apartment then after the first cleaning it was taken away.
Additionally, there were several burned out light bulbs. One being on the wall at top of the stairs so we shifted a bulb from a floor lamp to the top of the stairs. Remember there are no hand railings so having the light on at night is more about safety than ambiance.
Finally we were told that there is a clothes washer. It was broken. We expected to do laundry at night but had to take a day out of our travel schedule to go to a laundromat.
In working with Lorenzo, he was very responsive to my questions and his company is professionally managed. One question to ask is if and when there will be any cleaning during your stay. We were not told that they would clean the apartment twice during our stay. We assumed the cleaning would be done after our stay. While we were surprised to come back in the afternoon to find our the apartment tidy up, it was more disconcerting to not know in advance the cleaning schedule.
In addition, what I find unacceptable was that our personal items inside the medicine cabinet were rearranged during the second cleaning. I can’t find a reason to touch personal effects inside the medicine cabinet during a guests’ stay. Nonetheless, overall impression of Lorenzo and his company are favorable.
In summary, we would not return to this property. Instead, we would look at other properties that Lorenzo’s company has to offer.
Dear Jerry, thank you so much writing such a long and detailed review. The points you bring up about the lights and the kitchen are super important. I'm a bit disappointed that I didn't have the chance to fix these problems during your stay, as nothing was communicated to me. Buying new kitchenware/tableware/pots/pans/etc was an day thing to do and Mr. Honey wouldn't done it in a second. Same goes for the changing of the bulb and calling a plumber for the washing machine (which up until after your stay, I didn't know was't working).
I really really hope that I'll have the chance to make it up to you in another apartment on another trip. I apologize for not giving you a 100% pleasurable stay. I'll make sure that everything is looked after ASAP on this apartment. Again, thank you for being honest and so detailed! Warm regards, Lorenzo
Apartment is really great, espacially the terrace. The bathroom with view on san pietro is stunning. Trastevere is a really good place to stay.
The only problem was the communication. I sent a SMS to ask about wifi with no reply. Someone not speaking english very well received us so it wasn't possible to discuss about the things to do in the area. Worse, we asked for a taxi service to the airport at 4:30 AM and he wasn't there. Hopefully there was a taxi in the street (good option actually because it is only 30€ the ciampino airport even at night).
But all this is just detail, we highly recommand this place !
Thanks for writing in Vincent! Really nice of you to take the time. Yes, I have to agree, during high season, with all of the apartments that me and my team manage, we sometimes have a hard time with communication. Thanks for understanding and I hope to have you again in the future! -Lorenzo
