The space

I would like to emphasize that an excellent AIR CONDITIONING SISTEM, with AIR DEIONIZATION and PURIFICATION till 16 times per hour.

Located, with easy access, on the ground floor of a very quiet street in the hearth of Trastevere.
The apartment is a very spacious, and consists of a charming LIVING ROOM, it has ceiling made whit ancient beams wood and furnish with a old table in wood, where you can to eat all together or to stay comfortably to sit down on a comfortable sofa watching TV

Guest access

TO REACH THE APARTMENT, I STRONGLY RECOMMEND TO BOOK the "TAXI TRANSFER SERVICE"
The price of the municipal taxi from the airport to the center of Rome, has been set by municipal law at the price of 48 Euros (3 people), but many taxi drivers are also demanding an EXTRA CHARGE for luggage ....or EXTRA CHARGE for night service or EXTRA CHARGE for the festive day or EXTRA CHARGE for each person over 3 ..... so ... the price will be much higher.

Therefore, to avoid UNPLEASANT "discussions" with the taxi driver I recommend the "Taxi Transfert Service".
The price is from 10 to 25 euros each person (depend of number of people, ask me your price)

I will be happy to book your "Taxi Transfer Service" from the airport to the apartment and back (if you need)
It 'a very convenient service.
Your driver will be constantly in touch with the airport to guarantee punctuality in the event of delay of your flight.
During the transfer, your driver will be in contact with us to communicate the arrival time at the apartment and this will avoid unpleasant expectations on the road.

Let me know FLIGHT NUMBER and EXACT TIME OF ARRIVAL and I assure you a 5-star service.

the soap factory is one of the coolest places i stayed in. the place looks quite charming and rustic, living up to the place's history. it's in a good neighborhood where some of the hippest restaurants and places to hang out are located. we also found out that it's across a police station so you're sure of the safety of the place. only drawback was that there is just one bathroom (it gets a little complicated for 4 people) and that the bedrooms are downstairs (we just left our stuff on the ground level). but then again, those add to the charm of the place. the host was also quite accommodating. he even helped us book our ride from the train station and to the airport (even if it was a last minute booking). all in all, it's a great place to chill and hang in Rome.

This is an interesting place to stay. If it's not totally clear from the pictures and description the majority of this apartment is below ground. The kitchen and bathroom are upstairs and the bedrooms downstairs. The bedrooms are good sizes. Our main complaint is that in the downstairs everything felt wet. The sheets, bedding and floors all had a damp feeling to them that was not comfortable for sleeping. The location is absolutely excellent. It's in a really nice part of Rome but off the main path so even though you're minutes away from hundreds of restaurants you can go back to the apartment for some nice peace and quiet. The location alone is reason enough to stay in this apartment.

Dear Lilly This apartment has an excellent dehumidification, recirculation and air deployment system for 16 times per hour. I was in the apartment right after your check out and I noticed that you pressed the button to increase the humidity in the apartment. Surely this has happened unintentionally. I'm sorry but if you contacted me during your stay, I would have resolved it immediately. Anyway, I'm so glad you did a great holiday in Rome Thank you for everything Ciao Luigi

The Old Soap Factory apartment is in an ideal location in Trastevere. Wonderful restaurants and shops are right outside your door yet the apartment is very quiet. All major sites are within walking distance ,tram, or short bus ride. Luigi has a book with wonderful recommendations in the apartment. Alessia who welcomed us was so helpful and pleasant.

Great communication from Luigi throughout. Both he and the host who met us were very welcoming and made the whole experience very pleasant. The location is perfect - just outside the tourist traps, but a lively community with great bars and restaurants. The flat itself is full of character. It lacks some modern conveniences, but that is perfectly normal in an old property like this. The only (small) downside is that the electricity kept cutting out when both the air conditioning and the lights were on. This was rectified after a call to Luigi who explained too many lights and both AC units will overload the system. We managed perfectly fine without both running, so no major complaint.

Luigi's place was a great spot with a kitchen, bathroom and communal area upstairs and beds downstairs. On some night we had up to 5 people stay there so I thought the separation of the bathroom from the bedrooms which I thought was convenient. The best was the neighborhood. A great spot to go out at night, have gelato, dinner, drinks... a very fun spot and quiet to sleep.
