The Space

This apartment is very conveniently located just about 2 minutes from the Trastevere train station-- this is not quite the historic city center, but it's close and very well-connected, only about a 10 minute ride on the tramway (which runs very frequently). The neighborhood is still considered Trastevere, and you could walk to the city Center in about 30 minutes.There's a wonderful (and very big!)) park, Villa Pamphili, only about 10 minutes on the tramway, and another interesting neighborhood, Testaccio (great for eating out and night life as well as cultural events!) just across the bridge! (again, just a 10 minute walk)

The apartment itself is fully equipped and furnished: there's a separate bedroom (with comfortable double bed) and then a good sized entrance/living area with comfortable double sofabed, eating/sittiing area and kitchen area.
Nicely decorated and very well taken care of, but not recently renovated (thus the good price!). It's colorful and spacious enough for up to 5 people (with an added on single bed, and the double sofabed). We have air-conditioning, a large flat-screen TV, DVD, fully equipped kitchen (stocked with cooking utensils, oil, breakfast items, etc) and a dining area. It's on the ground floor so the windows look out to the sidewalk and street (but there are curtains of course). You might hear a bit of traffic noise. Supermarkets, restaurants, gelaterie and everything you'll need are within easy reach

Another great thing about this apartment is that it's basically located right in front of the famous "Porta Portese" market, the biggest flea market in Rome which takes place every Sunday. So if you've come to Rome because you're a mercato afficionado, then this is where you'd want to rent!

  • The apartment is spacious and confortable. Rosana and Laura were really friendly and helpful. We are grateful that She arranged for a taxi in advance to take us to the airport at 4:00 am.

  • L'appartamento corrisponde alla descrizione e alla foto, quindi complessivamente molto carino, ben collegato al centro attraverso i mezzi e vicino ad alcuni supermercati.
    La bella esperienza tuttavia è stata guastata da alcune pecche che mi sento di segnalare:
    - appartamento decisamente sporco: bagno da lavare (dallo specchio ai sanitari), cucina (appena arrivati ci siamo accorti che il ripiano era cosparso di zucchero)...questo, unitamente ad altri fattori (nel cassetto del comodino vi erano dei vestiti dimenticati; le lenzuola erano SPORCHE e macchiate) ci ha fatto pensare che non vi fosse stata pulizia alcuna.
    - inoltre pochi gli asciugamano: 4 teli di media grandezza (con cui fare tutto) e 1 asciugamano piccolo per 5 persone;
    - acqua calda razionata: il boiler consentiva al max la doccia rapida di 2 persone; diversamente sarebbe stato opportuno attendere un'ora e mezza almeno (ma x noi che eravamo 5 e non essendo estate, non è stato affatto comodo).

    la proprietaria è stata molto gentile e disponibile, per cui tutto sommato ci siamo trovati bene. però ripeto alcuni aspetti dovrebbero essere curati.

    Response from Rosana:

    Ospiti carini ma purtroppo con il classico atteggiamento italiano: voler pagare poco ma poi pretendere standard da albergo 5 stelle! Purtroppo così non funziona nella gestione delle case vacanze. Le case sono case vacanze, non alberghi. Noi ad un prezzo così (meno di 20 Euro a persona) non possiamo permetterci il servizio biancheria. e quidndi laviamo il bucato a casa, essendo ecologisti laviamo a 40 gradi con l'aggiunta di un disinfettante buono e sicuro, ma qualche macchia a volte rimane! Ciò non vuol dire che la biancheria è "sporca", vuol dire che non usiamo agenti chimici e nocivi per pulire. Le pulizie le ho fatte io stessa, quindi so che era (website hidden) credo che anche ad un prezzo basso è giusto pretendere la pulizia e la cortesia e la funzionalità, e ci siamo molto attenti. Se si hanno standard da albergo di lusso, meglio evitare le case vacanze che hanno una gestione più casereccia (ma anche più personale!)

    Typical Italian guests: wanting to pay close to nothing (less than 20 Euro per person) but pretending luxury standards. Cleanliness and hygiene is important to us, but we don't use harsh detergents and try to keep everything ecologically sound-- as most people will know, stains sometimes remain!

  • Nice Apartment and Nice Host!!!

  • Really nice apartment! We stayed here 4 nights and really enjoyed. Great value or money.

  • This host is kind and I am sure is a very good person, and she was quick to reply. But (as I will her know) this flat is in need of some serious care. It is in an ok location (not great, just ok). If you are looking to save money - this is a lower price - but it is also a lower quality - consider if its worth it - it wasn't for us (especially because we had kids with us).

  • The apartment was decent and in a very convenient area which takes only about 10 minutes via taxi to the historic sites. However, the bathroom is very small (even though I am a small person), and the hot water was limited even for one. I had to take quick showers before the hot water ran out, I did not meet my host which was a disappointment.

  • Хорошая квартира в нормальном месте. Качество полностью соответствует цене. Хозяйка ни разу не появилась, общались SMS.
    Рекомендую экономным путешественникам

  • Rosanna is really a nice host and very friendly and forthcoming. She tries to give all the information you need. About the apartment, I frankly cannot say that there were any major issues, more of a minor details about heating/water/toilet/cleanliness that are totally solvable and I believe are being solved as I write. Additionally I can say that apartment is situated in a house with a nice inner yard that is really nice place to sit after a long walk in Rome.
