"Vicolo del Piede" B&B is an Italian city style "bed and breakfast" in Rome offering accommodations with a warm "bed and breakfast" atmosphere in a centrally located, convenient location. It is the perfect place to experience daily life in a typically Roman setting.
The apartment is located in a circa 1400 three-story townhouse built in the architectural style of the much-loved italian renaissance style in rione Trastevere, close to the famous S. Maria in Trastevere Church and it feels the effects of all the emotions that this site arouses.
Here you will find a nice and refined environment personally created with great taste by the owner, thanks to his lenghty experience of architect. Even the smallest details have been taken care of with diligence. We offer two charming rooms each with 12 foots ceilings and beautiful hardwood floors. All the rooms are characterized by a different style. Open the shutters and gaze out of 6 foots windows onto lovely street and enjoy the sun of Rome. All the rooms are furnished with private bathrooms, air conditioning, tv lcd and internet wifi 24h.
As the bed and breakfast hasn't a reception, the customers must early communicate their arrival time. It is expected the daily cleaning of all the rooms and the common environment and the exchange of the linens every two days.
Let us be your home in Rome.
The area of Trastevere is ideal for a walk through narrow streets, squares and colours that still maintain an authentically Roman character and offers a pleasant contrast with the solemn splendour seen at the Vatican. In antiquity Trastevere – "beyond the Tiber" – was the first district established on the right bank of the Tiber and was inhabited by artisans, fishermen, merchants and communities of foreigners, connected with the activities of the nearby port.
The historic centre is at your feet. Crossing the Tevere you are at the Pantheon, with Piazza Navona and Campo de' Fiori; on to the Campidoglio, to the Foro Romano, to the Coliseum, to Fontana di Trevi and then Trinità dei Monti, to the most famous roads for shopping; coming down from the other side of the hill of the Gianicolo, you are at San Pietro.
All attainable destinations on foot, for those who love to walk and enjoy Rome in the best way, or with the bus that stops close to home.
... And the evening, leaving the B&B, you will have the unique feeling of entering in the history of the city getting to the alleys of Trastevere, the most Roman neighborhoods, famous for the many features Roman trattoria where you can enjoy culinary delights, a true delight the palate.

Andrea's apartment is centrally located . We walked almost everywhere during our stay. Love the house interior and the way each room is located.
Andrea is a fantastic host. We were allowed to check in early. He has provided the map and the directions to all the attraction we wanted to go. He also recommended some of the local restaurant that has good food with reasonable prices.
In short, fantastic place, fantastic host. Will stay back there again if I go to Rome :)
We had a wonderful visit with Andrea! He was there to greet us upon arrival, helpful in setting up drivers, recommending restaurants and places to visit in Rome. The accommodation was beautiful and conveniently located. We would love to stay again in the future. Thanks so much for a wonderful visit!!
My husband and I shared this apartment with my son and daughter in law. It was perfect for us - we loved the area- nice to come back to from a long and busy day. Having the piazza right around the corner, and all of Trastevere to walk around particularly at night was fantastic. Very convenient. We would have our gelato or wine or beer at the fountain before bedtime every night.
We made use of the yogurt and bread/jam in refrigerator.
We were there during very hot weather, so appreciated the air conditioner in the bedrooms only. The fan downstairs helped a bit when we hung out downstairs.
It was very clean and taken care of everyday.
The 2 bedrooms are rented out separately so if you request only one room you may very well be sharing the apartment. The 2 bathrooms are outside of the bedrooms, and each room has a key to a specific bathroom.
We felt like we were really living the Italian life with church bells keeping the time and Italian conversations going on outside the windows. Loved it!
Un apartamento perfecto en pleno corazón del Trastevere. Y a pesar de ello ubicado en una calleja pequeña y poco transitada por lo que no es nada ruidoso para la que puede legar a ser el barrio, muy de agradecer si quieres disfrutar de bullicio y descanso.
Bien acondicionado y equipado. Dos habitaciones con dos baños independientes, cómodo para compartir con deconocidos e ideal para hacerlo con amigos.
Anfitrión simpático y dispuesto a ayudarte en lo que pueda para disfrutar tanto del alojamiento como de la ciudad. Muy recomendable
Andrea was a really fantastic host. He is very accessible and professional. In addition to having B&B rooms perfectly located in Trastevere, he was very helpful with arranging our transportation needs. Staying with Andrea was worry free--just like a vacation should be.
Place was great! Had a great location to walk to everything. Very charming and clean. We went with a total of 6 people and it was perfect.
I wanted to stay in this apartment because of its location and because of the architecture on the inside, which turned out to be exactly what I was hoping for and more. We rented out the entire apartment for my mom, sister, husband and me, and it was very roomy.
Trastevere, the area that this apartment is located in, is amazing. It is exactly what you picture when you think of Italy: small, cobblestone streets, orange buildings with ivy hanging from them, windows open and clotheslines with clothing hanging between buildings. There is a small piazza right around the corner with a fountain, restaurants, and a gelato shop. I recommend trying the fresh-squeezed orange juice from the restaurant in the piazza (you’ll know which one) one afternoon after walking around in the heat.
Andrea was easy to communicate with and we found his office fine. He walked us to the apartment, showed us around, gave us a map of Rome with suggestions for places to eat, and we paid the €2/person tax. When we checked out, all we had to do was leave the key in the apartment and close the door. It was smooth and simple.
We had some issues with the kitchen while we stayed there. Andrea lists the apartment as a “bed and breakfast,” which means that there is fresh bread, butter, jam, yogurt and milk in the refrigerator, as well as coffee and tea. It also apparently means that you cannot use the stove. There are plates, cups and silverware, but no pots and pans. You are not allowed to do anything on the stove but “steam milk,” and you have to turn a knob on the wall in order to do so (which was not mentioned until I asked via email during our stay). The kettle and coffee pot were both broken, and Andrea fixed them the following day after I mentioned it to him. Just plan on eating out for every meal except for a very light breakfast.
The apartment is cleaned every day while you are out, which is a nice benefit. You get what you pay for and this apartment is definitely worth what you pay for it. Staying in Trastevere was the highlight of our trip and if I went back to Rome I would probably try to stay in this apartment again.
The reservation was canceled 50 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
The apartment was nice, but we were not at all pleased at the restrictions on not cooking there. It was very misleading to have a stove, oven, refrigerator, etc and then to find out the cooking was not allowed. Also there was a "tax" that was unexpected and collected on arrival. This should have been clarified on the apartment posting. 2 Euros a day per person becomes a significant amount of money to account for in planning for available cash. The neighborhood where the apartment is located is nice, but is noisy, as is the entire apartment if anyone goes up or down the stairs.
