My apartment is ideal for a couple who wants to explore the fascinating and exciting neighborhood of Trastevere, one of the most beautiful and lively quarters of Rome.
Entering this unique apartment you'll feel like travelling in time to the heart of ancient Trastevere, a quarter made of a brisk maze of picturesque alleys and squares.
From street level you have direct access to a comfortable living room and open kitchenette, furnished with all utensils needed for cooking.
A door divides this area from a corridor that gives access to the seperate bathroom with shower and the bedroom.
The apartment is furnished in a simple and practical style. Of course, sheets and towels will be provided by us.
Since we are living in the same building we are able to take care of our guests immediately and thoroughly. We speak englisch, german, russian, italian and french.
Because of the apartment being very well connected to all kinds of public transport and of its central location, our guests can easily reach, in some cases even by foot, all the major cultural and archeological sights of Rome. In the evenings you can enjoy the manifold night life and benefit from the fact that there is a vast number of restaurants, bars, clubs close at hand.
The apartment is covered by free wireless internet-connection now !
No smoking , please!
I hate to leave this review, but I must. I don't want anyone to go here because I want to keep it for myself. This place was really great! Very clean and cozy, perfect size for traveling couple with everything you would need. Simple, clean and efficient with all the amenities including hair dryer, soaps and shampoos, clean bed sheets and towels, fridge, oven with pots and pans and utensils. Many useful things that previous travelers left behind like travel books, maps, electric adapters, etc.
But the great thing is the location. In the heart of the center with so many restaurants, bars and shops within 5 min walk, there are street artists and musicians, street vendors, an open market, bus and metro stops all within your grasp. It was so nice to walk all over Rome (which is easily done from here- 40 min to Vatican, 20 to Coliseum, 20 to Pantheon, 25 to Trevi fountain, etc.) then come back to the apartment to rest our tired feet kicking back on the sofa, listening to music, then step out the door to one of the many tasty and very affordable restaurants in the neighborhood (recommend Cajo and Gajo, fried artichoke so good!).
Sebastian is a wonderful host, very attentive and accommodating, works hard to keep the place clean, was great at communicating with me through our entire travel plan there, helpful with local resources and advice on the neighborhood, just really good guy all around. I hope we can go back to Rome again soon and share a beer with him.
Please visit Rome and stay at this little gem in the heart of Trastevere. I am one of many travelers who have stayed here and had nothing but great things to say about it. I hate to blow it up because like all people who have found a great little spot, we want to keep it secret, but that would be a disservice to this place and to Sebastian. Happy travels!
Sebastian was a super host. He was available whenever needed and sent prompt email replies leading up to and during our stay. He was flexible with check in and out times and allowed us to leave bags in his apartment before leaving to catch our flight.
The apartment is as it appears in the pictures, slender but comfortable. Wifi worked really well.
Location is incredible. You're walking distance from everything. Trastavere itself has a vibrant atmosphere and you're perhaps three steps from the most bustling of streets.
Sebastian was great in meeting with us promptly and answering messages. The place was great, clean and also in an awesome location. I would definitely recommend the place if you were to visit Rome. Walking around was not difficult and it was also not too loud. He also had some converters for you just in case you didn't have one handy.
Sebastian est un très bon hote ! Pour commencer, il est disponible pour toutes questions éventuelles avant le départ, et nous fournit les info pour se rendre à l'appartement. Ensuite, nous pouvions le contacter à n'importe quand durant notre séjour, et celui-ci était à l'écoute. L'appartement est très bien, propre, en plein centre d'un quartier aussi beau que fantastique. Il y a tout le nécessaire pour passer un bon voyage à Rome !
Sebastian was a great host! His apartment was exactly how it looks in the pictures and the location was perfect. Everything was in walking distance. All amenities were provided and I highly recommend Sebastian's apartment!
I am usually a hard to please type of guy. If we add to that a fact that this trip to Rome was actually my honeymoon, stakes were much higher.
I am still overwhelmed by all the great memories and emotions but one thing is for sure: Sebastian and his flat in Trastevere were the key things that helped me to have a prefect dream vacation!
Trastevere is really the best location for discovering Rome: it is located in the center, is very safe and has that unique bohemian feeling that is still unspoiled by many tourists and artists wanna be.
Sebastian's appartement is located in the best location in Trastevere, and you have everything you might need in the closest vicinity : bars, restaurants, supermarkets, market with fresh food, best espresso for 0,9 Eur as well as for 3,5 Eur, beautiful and friendly Claudia selling best pizzas. Also there is a restaurant were you can have a meal for 2 persons for 13 Euros! as well as restaurant where you will need 100 euros for a meal. My point here is that you will find everything you might need in this neiberhood, just a few meters from Sebastian's appartement.
Not to forget that a taxi station is just a couple of minutes away as well as tram and bus stop. So you will need just a couple of stops to get to Piazza Venezia . We actually didn't even need those daily bus tickets, because everything you want to see is just a walking distance from Trastevere.
The appartement itself is a real authentic roman flat. So having a chance to stay in it, was a unique experience that added so much of that unique Italian flavour to our honeymoon. Imagine an old cooble-stoned street, full of parked vespas and a huge heavy wooden door through which you enter the appartement directly from the above mentioned street. Precious experience!
The appartement is so authentic, and even better looking than on those photos. It is definitely much larger that as it appears on y the photos. What you can see on the photos is just a decent looking basic flat, but what you experience the moment you enter it is really a unique experience.
Sebastian is really a great host and a wonderful human being. He did so many great things in order to help us to have a great honeymoon. For example he went to buy a birthday cake for my wife so we organised a great suprize for her. He was always just one email away and always had solutions for my requests.
At try the end I can wholeheartedly recommend his a appartement as the best place in Rome!!!
Sebastian seemed very nice and friendly. The location is superb and the place is rather spacious and very clean though you may not necessarily feel like hanging out inside that much.
Bring your slippers as tile floors can feel cold to walk on in the winter.
