About This Listing

The apartment is located in a circa 1400 three-story townhouse built in the architectural style of the much-loved italian renaissance style in rione Trastevere, close to the famous S. Maria in Trastevere Church and it feels the effects of all the emotions that this site arouses.
In Calisto6 B&B you will find a nice and refined environment personally created with great taste by the owner, thanks to his lenghty experience of architect. Even the smallest details have been taken care of with diligence. We offer charming rooms each with 12 foots ceilings and beautiful hardwood floors. All the rooms are characterized by a different style, decorated in soft color and fitted with fine parquette or marble floor and painstaking in all minimum parts. Open the shutters and gaze out of 6 foots windows onto lovely square and enjoy the sun of Rome. All the rooms are furnished with air conditioning, tv lcd and internet wifi 24h.
As the bed and breakfast hasn't a reception, the customers must early communicate their arrival time. It is expected the daily cleaning of all the rooms and the common environment and the exchange of the linens every two days.
Let us be your home in Rome.
The area of Trastevere is ideal for a walk through narrow streets, squares and colours that still maintain an authentically Roman character and offers a pleasant contrast with the solemn splendour seen at the Vatican. In antiquity Trastevere – "beyond the Tiber" – was the first district established on the right bank of the Tiber and was inhabited by artisans, fishermen, merchants and communities of foreigners, connected with the activities of the nearby port.
The historic centre is at your feet. Crossing the Tevere you are at the Pantheon, with Piazza Navona and Campo de' Fiori; on to the Campidoglio, to the Foro Romano, to the Coliseum, to Fontana di Trevi and then Trinità dei Monti, to the most famous roads for shopping; coming down from the other side of the hill of the Gianicolo, you are at San Pietro.
All attainable destinations on foot, for those who love to walk and enjoy Rome in the best way, or with the bus that stops close to home.

Good location, rooms were clean, this bed & breakfast is run very much like a business. A few issues with air conditioning and plumbing (hosts were receptive in trying to solve).
We stayed in a wonderful, very quiet, second location, just around the corner from Calisto 6 and so close to Piazza di Santa Maria. Andrea made sure someone was there to meet us and the accommodations were great, with plenty of space, simple but tasty breakfast, coffee, a comfy bed and we loved Trastevere! I highly recommend it!
Nariya and Andrea were very sweet hosts. They advised us on where to eat, gave us a clear map of the city, a tip on a great view of the city and were willing to be available and helpful in anyway they could. We ended up being upgraded to an apartment, which was a nice surprise, and ended up being in a bit quieter area (although just a few blocks away) then where the bnb location.
Breakfast was sufficient, a packaged croissant, cereal, juice and a espresso machine (which we had a bit of difficulty figuring out). We ended up going to a nearby bar for our breakfast coffee and pastry, mainly for the experience!
Trastevere is a wonderful area filled with nice people, a vibrant social life and is truly where a lot of people live. There are less tourists here, yet still plenty of people who speak English. We would highly recommend staying in this area, as everything is close enough to walk to, but far enough that you're not stuck in the center of the busiest part of the city.
