The apartment is on the first floor of a building of the '20s, right on the border between the districts of Trastevere and Testaccio. In the immediate area there are supermarkets, bars, restaurants, pizzerias, pharmacies and free parking.
Situated in an historical building of 1926, near the river Tevere, the flat is exactly between two very central districts: Trastevere and Testaccio.
You can find public transports just out of the door! The streetcar number 8 reaches Piazza Venezia in few minutes; busses 170, 719 and 718 bring you to central station, to the closer subway stop of Piramide and to Piazza Venezia; in five minutes walking you can get to Trastevere Station where trains to and from Fiumicino Airport and St. Peter's Cathedral stop every 15 minutes.
In the neighborhood you can find everything you need in few steps: supermarkets, cafes, pharmacies, restaurants, pizza, beer house... and, exactly behind the building, every sunday, there's the most popular and old market of Rome: Porta Portese.
The very good thing is that the apartment is in a secondary, very quiet street.
The flat is cute and newly renovated. It's composed by a lounge with a very comfortable double sofa bed, a bedroom with a queen size bed, a lightful dining kitchen, a bathroom with a bathtub and a lovely garden with a lemon tree! If you need an extra bed, there's a mattress on a little loft approachable by an handy retractable stair, but I also can put it in the bedroom. A baby bed is available too.
Please don't hesitate to contact me for any request.

Didn't meet Iliana, but was very kind and friendly (and speaks perfect English) over email. The place is fine - very safe and secure in gated building and convenient to Trastavere station. It is large and spacious and in a quiet neighbourhood which was great. It is a little bit far to walk to the sites, but good exercise! We used Uber a few times which worked brilliantly, but otherwise walked everywhere and clocked 6-8 miles each day!
The place could be a little bit cleaner, but overall it was fine. You can hear the neighbour upstairs wake up and walk around between 7 and 8 in the morning, but otherwise there aren't really any noise disruptions.
The Burger Factory restaurant is very good just at the corner, as is Pepito's Pizza which is a bargain and really nice and friendly service. Essenziale is a newer restaurant also very close by which was excellent as well - all these within 2 minute walk of the apartment!
We were met by Gustavo who quickly realized and remedied the fact that a bed had not been made up for our son. Even though it gets no full sun it is a cozy light apartment with a small back garden. When we were there the kitchen cupboard had plenty of essential food items like oil, salt, pepper etc. The bed was comfortable and our son slept well in the mezzanine above the living room. I probably wouldn't put a very young child up there. Everything was clean and in good order.
We absolutely loved the area and connection to the excellent public transport. Ilaria was very responsive to any questions we had.
Don't forget in Rome there is a tourist tax of 3.50€ per adult and over 10 yrs per night which is payable upon arrival into the apartment.
This is a wonderful large, comfortable, bright, spacious apartment. Probably our favorite in 4 months of traveling. The kitchen is fully equiped (lots of food too) and has a lovely dining space. Too damp and cool to use the garden during our visit but it is nice to look out the window at the inviting space. We liked the location better than we thought we would. It's next to the Testaccio bridge and neighborhood. Testaccio has a great farmer's market and lots of good restaurants. The cemetery, by the piramid,where Keats and Shelley are buried is enchanting. If you are at the apartment on a sunday you will wake up to a giant flea market a block away. It's easy to get to Trastavere and all the sites across the river, tram #8 is close and covers it. Stay here, you'll be glad you did.
This apartment is a really pleasant space to rent. It is equipped with anything you could want, and it was really nice to be greeted by cake, a bottle of wine, and fruit. It was quiet and warm, and in a residential area. The only thing that I did not like about this apartment was the location--it was much farther from the sites than I expected. We used the tram twice, and it was horribly crowded both times and could barely fit on with our stroller. If we weren't traveling with a child, the location would have been less of a problem.
Nice apartment on a good location near Trastevere station. Ilaria left all kinds of food and stuff for us available in the apartment, which was very helpful. There were some less positive things as well: no unlimited access to hot water, so we couldnt have a shower when we wanted too. The oven didnt work and there was a cat crying in front of the door during the night.
Rome has been great anyway :)
I stayed here with my 14 year old daughter and I highly recommend it! Nives was right there when we arrived and she is genuinely warm and welcoming. The apartment was exactly as described. A lovely touch was all the goodies Nives had placed on the table for us weary travellers -- a bottle of wine, fruit, Italian pastries and holiday decorations. The bed was comfy and the place was warm with a well stocked pantry. Wi-fi worked great. We had a minor key issue but Nives responded immediately and it was resolved without her even having to come. The Testaccio area is just a short 10 minute walk over the bridge and you can get to the animated part of Trastavere fairly easily as well. Right on the same block as the apartment is a really creative award-winning chef at the restaurant Fernanda -- I highly recommend this place. To get to the historic center, we usually took the number 8 tram about seven stops or a taxi (roughly 8 euros). A wonderful place to stay on all counts! Thank you Nives!
Wir haben uns in Ilarias Wohnung sehr wohl gefühlt und würden bei unserem nächsten Rom - Aufenthalt gerne wieder dort wohnen! Alles war super vorbereitet.
Hi, my name is Ilaria. I'm from Rome. I rented Carla's home and now I take care of the management of the house with my friend named Nives.
