Recently I renowed the living room with a bed sofà and tends in delicate colors. An ancient chinese lamp on a wood table gives a fascinating atmosphere. The elegant main bedroom (dedicated to Egon Schiele paintings) has a new window that isolate from the street noisy.
The apartment is very central, in any case, in the area, you can find public transits: bus, tram.
Trastevere is a very central and vital quarter, a short walk from Campo dei Fiori, Piazza Navona, Colosseum, Vatican. Littered with bars, clubs, market. Neighborhood loved by artists and film people.

You are in the heart of Rome.
It's important to follow the rules. In any case during the check in we will explain everything. Ask to the check in lady.
Vicky was so helpful pointing us to the best places and patiently answering all questions. The apartment was charming and right in the center of action. We loved the neighborhood ambience.
Great apartment in a great location. The owner was very helpful and the welcome was great. There were a few issues in the apartment which were handled very quickly and with great communication. The neighborhood is full of nightlife, with lots of great restaurants.
We had a lovely 3 night stay at this great apartment. Vicky was very helpful in answering all our questions and with check in. The apartment had lots of room for us 5 friends and all the necessary amenities. The best thing about the apartment though is the fantastic location. Right across the Ponte Sisto bridge in he the heart of Trastavere, the best neighbourhood, with amazing restaurants, cafés and shops, but still a short walk to most of the sites like the colosseum, forum and Vatican. Vicky gave us lots of restaurant reviews which we amazing. This apartment was the perfect choice for our quick 3 nights in Rome.
Nous avons été très gentiment accueillis et Simona et Valeria étaient tout le temps disponible pour nous aider. L'apart est très beau, grand et dispose de tout ce dont on peut avoir besoin (même plus). L'apart est très bien situé pour faire du tourisme, il est juste dans un rue un tout petit peu trop animée, ceux qui cherchent le calme devraient aller ailleurs (mais les fenêtres sont bonnes!)
The apartment is on a very lovely street in the heart of Testevere. There are a ton of restaurants and small bars located within walking distance. The apartment itself is very comfortable and easily fit 4 guys. Definitely worth staying.
Great apartment in Rome. Perfect location to explore the city.
Little noisy at night so ear plugs a good idea.
We have used airbnb many times and will continue to do so. That said, this will be a very real, and accurate review of the apartment and the services provided from the moment we arrived.
Never met Simona, but Valeria her assistant, was very helpful. She went over the details of the apartment and allowed us to place our bags inside while they cleaned it.
Yes, the area is quite central, and has wonderful amenities. However. it should be mentioned, that if you enjoy a goodnights sleep, give it up. There is a very loud and popular bar located 20 meters below the bedroom window. The bar serves cheap drinks and is open till 2 AM in the morning; at times they get the drums out. I had no idea just how bad it was going to be, otherwise we would have booked somewhere else.
The apartment is a good size for a small family of 4, 2 adults and 2 children. However, I wouldn't recommend it for anyone with a mobility issue. One of the bathrooms is located up a steep step ladder in an alcove, above the smaller bedroom. It's so steep that in our opinion, for safety reasons, to descend from the alcove, you probably should step down backwards. The main bathroom, which is located inside the "larger" bedroom is really filthy, with mold growing around the tub. It was so dirty that we actually bought a bathroom cleaner and sprayed it in the tub. In addition, as the machine didn't work properly, were never able to use the clothes washer and dryer . We made them aware of the situation, but never heard another thing about it.
We heard the apartment is for sale, which may explain the overall condition of the apartment. However, if we were the host, we would definitely invest in one good sound proof window for the "larger" bedroom, a paint job, and a good thorough cleaning.
Sorry Simona, we wish we could have given you higher marks and a better review, but we felt the airbnb community deserves real and accurate reviews.
Hiram and Juan
Dears Hiram&Juan, I'm really sorry for these complaints and I will try to answer point by point. The apartment is exactly as described and visible from the photos, if you needed a bigger apartment you had to choose another one. I do a correct maintenance and the apartment is in perfect condition to receive hosts. Regarding the cleaning I'm very sorry, it had never happened before, and I will check this, but you could report it (in eight days) and I would have sent someone to clean. As for the washing machine, you have reported only on the last day (you could do it before and I would have immediately solved the problem).
Trastevere is a place full of bars and restaurants with a lively nightlife (it is written in the description and precise travelers as you, know it). The bedroom window has double glazing and since it was installed (a couple of years ago) I have not received complaints. It is also the only room faces the street, the rest of the apartment overlooks a courtyard and quiet with a nice view.
I did not like "quite central". The apartment is more than central is in the heart of Rome. Just as I did not like and I found inelegant to mention that the apartment is for sale and note it as a "diminution". I'm wondering who've said that. Anyway thank you, it is always useful to have different points of view. We will try to improve everything. On the spaces and the location I can do little but I personally find the apartment to be charming and lovely for this. So next time you wish to choose other, as also I hope to have guests with different needs. Thank you and all the best. Simona
About the Host, Simona
Rosso il mio colore. Sono una donna che ama i dettagli e la sostanza delle cose. La raffinatezza come ricerca spasmodica della bellezza. Amo altresì l'energia dei luoghi e Trastevere ne possiede tanta, copiosa e ardente. Una dimora conserva l'energia di chi la ama, ecco perché credo che questo splendido angolo di Trastevere sia speciale. Una romantica vista sulle terrazze di Roma, nel suo cuore. La cura di ogni dettaglio. Non è un'abitazione qualunque è una vibrante esperienza.
