The apartment is located in Piazza San Cosimato in the heart of Trastevere, one of the most famous pedestrian zones in the city of Rome. Every morning the square is filled with a bustling market while the numerous bars and open-air restaurants ensure that the area remains lively all day.
The nearby church of Santa Maria in Trastevere is decorated with one of the most famous medieval mosaics in Rome while the narrow medieval lanes of the area characteristic of Roman life. The area of Trastevere is also famous for its lively nightlife.
Located on the first floor of a recently restored building dating back to the turn of the century, the flat overlooks the back of the palazzo and is thus extremely quiet and peaceful.
Completely renovated just a few months ago, the apartment can sleep up to 6 people and is composed of an entrance hall, a sitting room with kitchenette, dining table, a comfortable sofa bed, a double bedroom, a second bedroom with two single beds (140x190) and a bathroom with shower.
The entire apartment, bathroom included, is lined with durmast parquet flooring.
The kitchenette is finished in marble and fitted with a fridge, a microwave, a gas stove, an oven, plates, cutlery and pots and pans. The central heating system is autonomous and guests will be supplied with bed linen and towels. The apartment is also equipped with SKY TV and free wi-fi Internet connection.
This apartment was absolutely perfect for my group and me! The hosts were incredibly accommodating and flexible in meeting my friends and I for an earlier than planned check-in. The apartment itself was very clean and well-maintained, in a beautiful and safe building, with comfortable furnishings. The bathroom is large and the shower has excellent water flow. The apartment is in a great part of the fun and eclectic Trastevere neighborhood. I could not recommend this apartment enough. One thing to note is that I do not think the photos do the apartment justice; the apartment is much nicer in person. I highly suggest renting this apartment for your stay!
Great location, clean apartment, quiet neighbourhood. Very close to Trastevere. There is a bazaar just in front of the apartment every morning so you can grab some fresh fruits and vegetables etc. Market, pharmacy, shops are just around the corner. Easy to walk to historical spots. All staff are very helpful and punctual. Easy to reach and communicate. I definitely recomend and get in touch for my future journeys.
It was a lovely stay. Thank you.
Very authentic Roman apartment in a simply wonderful, non-touristy, vibrant part of Trastevere, and in a beautiful apartment building. Clean and comfortable (although the bathroom, as is the case across most of Rome, is extremely small). There is no air-conditioning, which was a little tough during a Roman heatwave, but fans were provided and got us through. Great little apartment.
The apartment is located on the other side of the river, and accessible by bus/cab. As I was travelling with a lot of luggage, I took the cab from the train station. So I had to pass the phone to the cab driver & let him talk to the check in staff, for specific direction.
The place is managed by an agency, and it requires the guest to advise their check in time 1 week in advance. In my case, it was a little challenging as I only managed to get my train ticket to Rome just the day before. However, I did manage to check in though I had to wait awhile at the piazza across the apartment block. Check in was also a breezy process.
I like the location of the apartment. There's a farmers' market at the square just outside the apartment that operates every morning. I loved geting some fresh fruits from the farmers, which I then carried with me for the day walk.
The apartment is really convenient....and close to amenities. Within walking distance are groceries stores, a pharmacy, bank and a few cafes. In the evening, it's good to take a walk to the river side or just to chill out at the piazza of the Santa Maria de Trastevere.
Vatican City is about half hour walk to the north of the apartment. It's a good walk by the river. I even walked to Vatican twice during my stay.
To get to other part of Rome, I took the metro line. However, the nearest station I had to go to was the Circo Massimo, about 20 mins walk, across the river. From there, you can go to Colloseo & other places & change metro line.
One point to note is regarding the garbage collection time. There are specific days & time for different type of garbage e.g. 1pm on a certain day. That was another challenge for my group since we left the apartment early in the morning & only came back late in the evening.
Overall, it was a good stay at the apartment.
Everyone at the agency we had dealings with was very friendly, especially the guy who greeted us at the apartment. The property itself was in need of some minor improvements (a coat of paint here and there etc) but was very well stocked with everything you could need. The location was great, very near several buses and a tram to take us all over Rome and a lot of good restaurants and shops in the area. It was set back just enough from the main part of Trastevere, however, to be peaceful at night. I felt it was good value for money and would consider staying here again in the future.
