Trastevere the dense area across the river, is considered by many to be Rome's most authentic neighborhood, teeming with street life and overflowing with local color. At night, both natives and tourists alike flock to its many pubs and restaurants. The unique character of this neighborhood has attracted artists, foreign expats, and many famous people.
Step outside your door and find Baroque fountains, medieval churches, Imperial Roman temples and the shops, restaurants and people which lead people to call Rome a big "village". Trastevere maintains its character thanks to its narrow cobbled streets lined by medieval houses.
Just to the north of Trastevere is the medieval Borgo neighborhood, characterized by the powerful presence of the Vatican City and Castel S. Angelo. Both areas are ideal for those who want their stay in Rome to have more of a local flavor. Cross the river and in five minute walk you reach Piazza Navona and Piazza Venezia.
From the B&B you can reach within walking distance the following sites:
CAMPO DE' FIORI
SANTA MARIA IN TRASTEVERE
ACCADEMIA NAZIONALE DEI LINCEI

Nice appartment, full of charm and character, situated at the edge of vibrant Transtevere.
Not for those who are seeking perfection but if you are looking for authenticity, this will suit you fine.
Only remark: no airconditioning to keep you cool in hot summer. Big fan helps.
I would advise it to my friends.
We enjoyed the location to many great cafes in the area. The bed was comfortable and the apartment clean. Close to St. Peter and relaxing by the river.
The apartment was as described, clean and airy. Great position, just metres from the hustle and bustle of Trastevere with bars and restaurants. Thanks to the info sheet from Elisabetta we quickly found our way around. Walking into central Rome is easy across Ponte Sisto or Ponte Garibaldi.
Es hat alles gepasst - schöne stilvolle Wohnung in Trastevere. Service drumherum excellent - Hilfe bei der Anreise, Informationen über die Geschäfte, Restaurants in der Nähe sehr gut - haben uns rundum wohl gefühlt.
Had a wonderful stay in Trastevere. Perfect location for any JCU parent visiting their son/daughter - literally right across the street. Also booked the airport transfer with Elisabeta - very convenient. Arrived in the early morning, way before checkin time, but she allowed me to leave my bags at the unit while the apt was being cleaned - which was extremely helpful. I would definitely recommend staying here!!! Thanks for the wonderful stay.
Ho trovato l'appartamento correttamente descritto e rappresentato nelle immagini sul sito. L'accoglienza ed i contatti sono stati precisi, corretti e puntuali. L'appartamento è molto gradevole e accogliente e situato in una posizione ottima: vicina alla vita di Trastevere, ma tranquilla. Comodi i collegamenti con il centro città. Lo consiglierei ad amici.
We asked for the pick up service at the airport and this worked super.
We went straight to the loft in the early morning and put our Luggage there and left to explore the city. In the afternoon we where back at the loft and this was very good. Good beds, clean, even stuff for a litlle breakfast, and on walking distance from all the musea and churches. At the street is a minimarket but with high prices..
The loft was exactly as in the pictures, our only "complain"was the bathroom, the shower was broken down and the bathroom can use a makeover. We didn't met the owner Elisabetta, only the housekeeper at the arriving and leaving moment.
Wenn we go back to Rome we would certainly go back to this Loft.
