Trastevere is the most "Roman" part of Rome.
The apartment is in the heart of Trastevere, right next to Piazza della Scala and behind Piazza Trilussa.
Despite its location in one of the most colorful and lively areas of Rome, the apartment is quiet because it is tucked away inside the courtyard of a historic palazzo. After a day of walking to visit museums and monuments, you can relax in the little garden, filled with lots of potted plants (and an artwork or two).
During the day, walking towards one of Rome’s best outdoor markets, only a few minutes away, you’re more like to cross real Romans instead of tourists along the neighborhood’s distinctive cobble stoned streets. And at night, Trastevere becomes the heart of Roman living. There are dozens of outdoor restaurants, pizzerias and wine bars to choose from. Or you can just stroll along the winding alleys, eating gelato —it is a very happy place.
Feature of apartment: one large bedroom, living room with sofa which could be converted into a double bed, kitchen with stove, microwave oven, coffee maker, hot water maker, bathroom with tub and shower. Build-in AC and heater in both bedroom and living room. A large courtyard. Washer/dryer in “storage” room along courtyard. WI-FI internet connection.
Smoking is not allowed in the house.
the apartment is 55 square meters plus 30 square meters courtyard
Great location, nice apartment. Roberto was very helpful during our entire stay. We arrived late and he was there to welcome us, also we had a late departure and we could stay in the apartment until departure. We had some issues with the hot water and wifi and he was quick to respond and fix the problem. The apartment is great for summer time when the weather allows for you to be outdoor all day. It is a bit humid but we didn't think it was a problem. All in all we would definitely recommend this place to others going to Rome.
We LOVED our stay in this quiet, clean apartment with the fabulous patio! Yes, it's in an old building (isn't that part of the charm of staying in Rome?), but it's safe and secure and we slept with the doors wide open. While the Trastevere street parties were raging just a few feet away, we were undisturbed in the comfy bed looking out on the patio and surrounding rooftops. We loved sitting in our private patio having a glass of wine or enjoying our coffee in the morning. It is a VERY convenient location just across from the pedestrian bridge so we could walk and get a fresh pomegranate juice at the Campo di Fiori. Roberto was very helpful and friendly and we would definitely stay here again!
Roberto was a gracious host and was really helpful with everything. The location of the place is walking distance to all the typical touristy attractions. There are lots of amazing restaurants within a 5 minutes walk and a very popular pizza place literally right outside your doorstep! The house itself was comfortable to stay in for a week for 2 people, the courtyard is a great addition too!
Un super Week End à Romme. Depuis le temps que nous souhaitions y aller, nous n'avons vraiment pas été déçu ! Et l'appartement de Roberto y a certainement été pour quelque chose.
De bonne taille pour un couple, voire même pour un peu plus. Tout y est ! Un petit bemol peut être pour la douche qui est petite, mais bon... une goutte d'eau dans l'océan. Je retiendrai surtout cette terrasse... Fantastique !!! Et qui nous a donné raison dans le choix de cet appartement.
Roberto quant a lui est discret mais toujours disponible, et merci pour la (website hidden) map avec les bons plans.
Pour le quartier, il est très vivant !!! Avec beaucoup de touristes aussi le soir vu le nombre de bars et de restaurants, mais on sent aussi que les romains aiment y venir !!! Et par contre, de la terrasse, on ne ressent pas du tout cette agitation, c'est le calme dans la tempête !
Si nous retournons à Rome un jour. C'est une adresse où nous reviendrons !
This was a very good apartment in a perfect location. Just outside the really touristy area so good restaurants and you were not paying inflated prices. Just the right size for a weekend stay. Had everything we needed and was close to all the good bars, restaurants and tourist attractions. Walkable from there to all main attractions. Highly recommended to stay here if visiting Rome. Roberto was very helpful and friendly and recommended some nice places close by.
Roberto is a friendly and helpful host. He gave us an excellent water-proof map of central Rome which luckily wasn't put to the test but withstood plenty of folding and unfolding. He also dealt quickly with two minor problems, with internet reception and the water heater.
The flat is ideal for two people. There is a spacious bedroom with an extremely comfortable bed and plenty of storage space, a main room with galley kitchen and small bathroom leading off it. Both the bedroom and main room have doors opening onto the courtyard which is the perfect place for eating at lunchtime or on warm evenings.
The Vicolo del Bologna is an unusual v-shaped, narrow street, with no through traffic in the north-east corner of Trastevere. It's ideally situated for crossing the Tiber via the pedestrianised Ponte Sisto into the Centro Storico. So most of the major sites are in easy walking distance. Though Trastevere is a tourist attraction in its own right it's small streets and absence of well-known monuments means that it avoids the big tour groups that dominate the Vatican and the Colosseum. And there is plenty of choice when it comes to bars and restaurants. It also has good food shops, small supermarkets, and an open market selling amazingly fresh fruit and veg.
A great apartment in a perfect location, everything can be reached by walking. We have received many good tips for travel, restaurants, bars and sightseeing. Roberto was very kind and always available. The communication was very good and fast. The apartment is clean and neat, just like in the pictures. We can really recommend Roberto and would again choose this apartment if we visit Rome again. Thanks again for the great time!
