Cosy one bedroom apartment on 1st floor located in Vicolo del Leopardo in the heart of Trastevere,an ancient and charateristic district of Rome at 5 min walk to the most important touristic points in Rome.
Trastevere is a picturesque medieval area located on the west bank of the Tiber. The area escaped the grand developments which changed the face of central Rome, and is a charming place to wander, eat or relax.
Trastevere (TrasTEVeh-ray)is named for its position 'over the Tiber'. Separated from the heart of central Rome by the river, the area retained its narrow lanes and working-class population when the rest of Rome began its nineteenth-century expansion.
Tourists are charmed by Trastevere, although they descend in numbers which slightly obscure the area's personality. From being the last surviving pocket of earthy medieval Rome, the neighbourhood has also become unique in Rome in attracting a crowd of young crusty-locked foreign beggars, buskers and alcoholics. Internet cafes are side-by-side with gloomy ancient premises of uncertain function, and you can choose from trendy bars and traditional chocolate shops. Still, despite the influx of foreign money, Trastevere still maintains a strong local identity
The heart of Trastevere is Piazza di Santa Maria in Trastevere, a pedestrianised square piazza lined with restaurants and pricey bars, faded palazzi, and the church of Santa Maria in Trastevere. The steps surrounding the pretty central fountain are a popular hang-out spot for a non-typical crowd (watch out for unwashed jugglers).
From this apartment you will be able to visit all the most touristic sights in Rome by having a pleasant walk.

Fantastic location in Trastevere. Apt. was functional but needs renovating. The "couch/bed was very uncomfortable. The main bed was fine. I understand it's in a very old location but apt. needs to be updated if you want to charge so much for room. Overall, had a great time in Rome. Sabrina was very accomodating.
Thanks Richard for your advices I will fix everything about the sofa bed.
The location as you wrote is great in the heart of Trastevere district and this apartment has a very good value for money as apartments in the same area a much more expensive and not high quality standard.
Anyway thanks for everything and happy you had great stay in Rome!
Sabrina let me know that she found a big problem in the apartment just before we could stay in it. She did have a more expensive and nicer apartment in another area of Rome that we could have stayed at no extra cost but unfortunately it was not an area we wanted to stay in. We were able to book with another host and given a full refund so everything turned out ok.
Nice little apartment in wonderful neighborhood. with this unit it is important to be prompt with the time you say you will arrive. There is a cash deposit, so you also have to arrange a time to meet the key holder when you leave, so it will be difficult to check in/check out early/late.
