Trastevere, the heart of the city, home to major Italian dialectical poet Gioachino Belli and the inspiration for another, Trilussa. It is precisely here that Roman plebeians were born and raised. Amid piazzas, its “Fontanone” fountain and cobblestoned streets, the “Trasteverini” led in ancient times the lives of the common people, whose pride and sincere character as well as beautiful women set them apart from the “nobility”. Today the district is still amongst Rome’s most beautiful and characteristic: the hub of nightlife and wining and dinning, an open air theatre of marvellous piazzas (Piazza Trilussa, Piazza Santa Maria in Trastevere, Piazza San Cosimato ..), churches and historical alleys, all of which are marked by that distinctive timeless “Roman” flavour.
There is nothing more pleasant than an evening stroll through Testaccio, the working-class district, situated between Via Marmorata, the Aurelian Walls and the River Tiber, where true Roma soccer supporters are born and bred. Sense the rather original atmosphere of a zone heaving with restaurants, bars and clubs, making the area around Monte Testaccio highly popular with night-lifers.
The Monte dei Cocci, or Monte Testaccio, is a real and proper “waste tip”, an artificial mound dating from the Roman era rising in the very heart of the city. The ancient Romans in fact used to dump their broken pieces of pottery and fragments of oil amphorae which had arrived for market and been unloaded at the nearby river port on the Tiber. This gathering pile of earthenware over time swelled into a hill, where today a pleasant stroll may be taken hunting for exciting relics dating from the third century A.D. Then in the following centuries, grottos were dug, used as cellars and stables, which have been turned into restaurants and disco-pubs, popular haunts for the nightlifers.

The apartment is rather small, but nice and with access to the terrace, where it is very pleasant to finish a day chatting with glass of wine. Also it is absolutely perfectly located: it has such a wonderful and picturesque neighborhood with squares full of cafes, narrow charming streets, it is full of life and musicians, but not overloaded. It is a pure delight to live in such a place in Rome. And it is walking distance from absolutely everything, we have never used any transport there. Great choice for affordable price! Oh, and flying company lost our luggage and Sabrina kindly helped us with managing of the luggage return.
Everything is just perfect about this place ! So don't hesitate.
I saw Sabrina and Seb just once when I arrived, they're were nice and explained to me all I needed to know. So there was no need to call them during my stay, but I know they're easily reachable.
The flat is clean and very well located. You're in a walking distance from absolutely everything. And during the evening, there's no other place you want to be. Cool bars and good restaurants all around. very fun and safe area.
Thank you !
The location was great and the terrace was very nice. The bed was VERY uncomfortable and the pillows were terrible as well. The kitchen are was not very clean.
Overall we enjoyed our stay here in Unit 5 and would probably return, knowing what we now know. The location is excellent for walking around Trastevere and into the old part of Rome. It also is a fairly quiet part of the district as it is not on a highly used thoroughfare. We asked Sabrina to arrange transport from the airport and it was worth the 50E – it would be a real hassle to find one’s way here from the airport by public transportation.
As for the unit itself: We found it in clean condition. it is really a studio with only a partial wall separating the living room/kitchenette from the bedroom. As a result, light and sounds from one room penetrate into the other room. The kitchenette is equipped with basic cooking ware and a little stovetop espresso pot. There is a washing machine that, like many European machines, washes but does not dry. For that, there is a drying rack on the roof and a clothesline off one of the windows in the unit. The bathroom is adequate but has a tiny shower; it takes some practice not to flood the bathroom when showering. The bedroom has a comfortable bed, two nightstands each with two small shelves, and an armoire. There are no drawers. We found that the wireless worked most of the time for our laptop but never for our iPhones. The roof deck is a nice amenity and gave us the opportunity to interact with the other guests.
One of the main reasons we chose Cedro was that other reviewers stated that Sabrina was on site and generally available. For whatever reason, that was not the case during our stay. We met her upon arrival but we did not see her after that. We learned several days later that she was out of town and would not return until several days after our departure. There was really no backup person on site at regular hours during the day. Sabrina did respond to an email we sent within 24 hours and she made her cell phone # available. However, we didn’t try to call her, because we did not want to disturb her, as we did not know the reason she was away.
If you stay here, be prepared for the following: only one key per unit is available; bring your own hand soap, shower gel/soap, laundry soap, and maybe dish soap (there was some of that when we got there but it may have been left by former tenants). Also bring matches unless you don’t mind lighting the stove with a Bic lighter. And if you do intend to do any laundry, bring some clothespins.
Such a wonderful time in Rome! Trastevere is a cute little area with lots of restaurants et terraces. At the same time, it's at a walking distance from everything you need to see in Rome. Buses and tram not for away and easy to use. The apartment was clean and confortable. Sabrina was a great host and very helpfull!
Caroline and Francis,
We enjoyed our stay at Trastevere Cedro 5 Apartment. It was small in space, but clean and quiet, and it had all that we needed. The terrace on top of the building was great, however, it was too hot at the time (mid June) to use it, apart from evenings and nights. The location is fantastic, just around the corner from lovely restaurants and cultural sites, but it is situated just far enough removed from the noise at night. Cedro 5 is a great stay, where you can experience living in this wonderful old area of Trastevere, with views onto narrow lanes, roofs and washing lines stretching between windows that are typical for Rome. Thanks, we had a great time.
Great location! We really enjoyed Trastervere. The apartment was extremely comfortable, quiet and well appointed and central enough to also walk to the Vatican, the Pantheon and other famous landmarks. The rooftop terace was a bonus. Sabrina arranged transportation to and from the airport and was very flexible with our departure. Also note that the tourist hospital is close by.
