About This Listing
Which better place to stay in Rome of Trastevere, one of the most beautiful and characteristic areas of the central city, one of the oldest and historical hearts of Rome.
The apartment is located in one of its many alleys known for its many famous restaurants and nightclub, Via della Scala.
The apartment is about 38mq., being a ground floor and staying in a beautiful courtyard, enjoys the privilege of staying very quiet but at the same time, coming out, enjoys the highest of joy and fun, then has a nice outdoor area of about 12mq. that belongs to the house where you can eat outdoors in peace.
It consists of a single environment rather large to small, typical and comfortable as all covered with wood, both floors and the beamed ceilings, at the entrance there is a small table with chairs, a sideboard rustic, a small sofa and an armchair, then going a step almost as a separate environment, there is a double bed and a small wardrobe, a small stereo/CD and a large flat screen TV, hanging high on the wall opposite the bed.
There is the possibility to accommodate another person also.
Returning to the entrance, near the dresser, there is a little kitchen, furnished and equipped with a mini-fridge, cooking machine with an oven, and finally in front of it, there is a small bathroom with a bathtub. There are always clean towels and sheets. The house is provided with an air conditioner that in addition to functioning as heating, also functions as a conditioner in summer, this allows that the environment, not being very large, reaching immediately in both cases the ideal temperature. There are a hair dryer and an iron.
Easily accessible from the main train station in Rome, Termini Station, by many bus that in 20 minutes take you to Viale Trastevere directly, the Sonnino/S.Gallicano bus stop and then from there by walking a few meters, we arrive at home, maybe going to the famous restaurant "La Parolaccia". Near there is the famous American University. Always walk, from Trastevere you can reach the most beautiful sites that there are to visit in Rome, such as Castel Sant'Angelo, the Gianicolo, the Tiber Island, Testaccio, not to mention the famous Porta Portese market. In short, for those who come from far away to Rome, Trastevere is undoubtedly one of the very best that lends itself to everything.
Although it is not equipped with free Wi-Fi in front of the house there is a very quaint and cozy bar where you can enjoy this service consuming maybe a good cup of coffee.
As there is not a washing machine, on the other hand, in one of the alleys adjacent house, there is the possibility to use the laundry where, at very low cost, in less than an hour you can wash its dirty laundry.

We had a very easy time getting in touch with the host when we first arrived in Rome and had no problems getting situated in the flat. Emanuela also went out of her way to provide us with directions, train schedules, and information about the sites which is more than I can say about anyone else we've ever done Airbnb with so that was very much appreciated. The location is excellent and we really enjoyed the Trastavere neighborhood, particularly in the evenings when everybody was out for drinks and food at the countless restaurants and bars. I do have to say that the flat is not as well lit as the picture makes it out to be and although there was AC, it always just felt a bit damp. The shower was also a little odd and is not particularly comfortable for a tall person (>6 feet) as the ceiling is quite low. Overall, we enjoyed our three nights here and would recommend it for a short stay.
Nous avons beaucoup apprécié notre séjour dans cet appartement. Tout y est parfait. La petite cour typique est très agréable, nous avons pu y prendre nos petits déjeuners et y finir nos soirées.
Nous recommandons vraiment le quartier qui est génial, à 2 pas du pont Sisto qui mène au vieux centre. Quand nous sommes arrivés (vers minuit), nous avons eu la surprise d'arriver dans une rue très animée et accueillante! Mais l'appartement reste très calme car situé au fond d'une cour.
Nous vous conseillons aussi le restaurant Romollo au coin de la rue.
Consiglio vivamente l'appartamento di Emanuela per l'ottima posizione, comoda a tutto e circondata da ristoranti, bancarelle e pub, pur rimanendo tranquilla e silenziosa grazie al giardinetto interno privato. L'appartamento è esattamente come mostrato da fotografie, molto pulito e con tutti i comfort necessari per il bagno e la cucina. Purtroppo non abbiamo conosciuto Emanuela, ma una persona di sua fiducia che ci ha spiegato tutto nei dettagli e si è resa disponibile nel caso avessimo avuto bisogno. Emanuela dal momento della prenotazione ha sempre tempestivamente risposto ad ogni mia minima domanda e dubbio.
L'appartamento è a 5 minuti a piedi da varie fermate di autobus, per andare velocemente in ogni direzione senza dover cambiare mezzo, ma è molto comodo anche per muoversi a piedi, cosa che abbiamo quasi sempre fatto nei 4 giorni di soggiorno.
Consiglio sicuramente a tutti questa location, e spero di tornarci presto!
The location is fantastic!!! Right in the heart of Trastevere. You can literally walk everywhere without using any public transportation. The apartment is also very nice and the bed is very comfortable. The only let down is the access to Internet and the general network reception (the 3G barely work). I would definitely come back!!!
The apartment was just as described on the ad, and everything was ok.
Concerning the house, there were just a few details, which could had enhanced our stay.
First of all, the lack of "hanger" for the shower, made it really hard to take a comfortable bath.
Second, the keys of the garden's door, and the house's ones were really tricky, and sometimes it took a while to finally get them opened.
Last, there is no wifi (and that is clearly said in the ad), but what is not said is that is not that easy to get free wifi around Trastevere, for you have the time to seat in a bar/restaurant (and order something more than a bottle of water) for them to give you the pass. As a traveller, it is a almost a must to have access to the internet nowadays, for looking up for the basics (opening times of places to visit, getting maps from the city, information, etc). So it was kind of an issue not having wifi on our house.
As a positive thing I would like to remark that, although the house is in the heart of Trastevere, this wonderful neighborhood, full of life, cultural activities, and nightlife -which can be noisy sometimes- there is a really quiet atmosphere inside the house (and even in its garden) as it is located inside a nice building, away from the noisy street.
Concerning communication, it was really complicated to get to Mauro when we first get to the house, which ended in both, he and us, wasting an hour and a half waiting for the meeting. We wrote Emmanuella at our arrival too, as Mauro wasn't answering, and she didn't answer either. Actually we didn't know anything about her un our 5 nights stay.
All in all, we would reccommend this house for two, specially for its location. We had a great time here! (:
We really enjoyed our stay Trasvetere is a great district and was really buzzing in the Evenings and Afternoons we were amazed how tranquil the studio was considering where we were it was lovely and quiet and the neighbours were too. bath is a little small but on the whole the place is as described we had good communication with our host on whatsapp and were greeted by her assistant as promised . Thanks Emanuela we will be back.....
Merci à Emanuela de nous avoir permis de passer une très bonne semaine à Rome : appartement parfaitement localisé au cœur même du Trastevere mais sans nuisance sonore, propre, fonctionnel, avec tout le confort nécessaire. Grazie mille !
