About This Listing
Medieval apartment in old Trastevere just by Piazza Santa Cecilia. Just across the bridge from the Tiber Island and the ancient Temple of Hercules Victor (2nd century BC). 10 minute walk to Piazza Venezia and Campidoglio (the birthplace of Rome). Trastevere is the heart of Roman nightlife with restaurants, cafes, and art boutiques. It is the part of Rome where musicians walk through the Labyrinth cobblestone streets while playing their violins. It's like being in a small village. Very genuinely Roman.
On the primo piano (or American 2nd floor) without elevator. The apartment is a studio with a comfortable queensized bed, dining table, and kitchenette (with complete cookware and dinnerware. The bed has a real queensized mattress (not two beds put together). Microwave, bread toaster, electric stove top, electric kettle. Bathroom with shower. Amenities include a washing machine, A/C, Wifi and the convenience of being in the heart of the Eternal City.
There is a late check in fee of 20euros for arrivals after 8pm (20h00).
After 10pm (22h00), the late checkin fee is 40euros.
NO checkins allowed after 12midnight (24h00).
Interaction with Guests
I will be meeting with each guest on checks-in day so that I can turn over the keys and explain all the amenities
Just below the apartment building are two cafes, an absolutely must-visit restaurant called Le Mani in Pasta, and a grocery store.
From this apartment's location, "everything" is walking distance away.
Unless communicated beforehand, all checkouts must be by 10am so that we may prepare the apartment for the incoming guests.
Joseph arranged for us to drop our bags off even though the room was not ready. That gave us a chance to see Rome a bit more on our first day! The room is in what I would consider the best place to stay in Rome. Trastevere is quaint, hip and not too touristy neighborhood in Rome. The location is close to everything and within a reasonable walking distance. Downstairs you have a choice of three cafe's to get a good cappuccino and croissant to kick start your day. The room is as advertised. It is clean, updated and offers everything you need for a comfortable stay. Joseph always responded quickly to our requests and was a gracious host. I would highly recommend Joseph's flat to anyone who is interested in a nice location with a feel for the real Rome.
The flat was great and from the start Joseph made us feel very welcome and at home in the apartment. The location is very convenient within walking distance of all the major attractions and sites. There were plenty of excellent food choices close at hand or within a short walking distance. The flat had plenty of hot water available, and the bed was very comfortable - slept well throughout the four nights. The location is a little tucked away, which may mean a brief walk for 5-8 minutes both in and out over cobbled streets to get to a taxi or public transportation. At night this first floor flat was a little noisy as there were a few restaurants in the immediate vicinity - nothing too serious, but we had the window open (we didn't use the air con) which made it noisier. As mentioned elsewhere, the shower cubicle is small and the drainage is slow; be warned if you are of slightly bigger build! Overall, I would very highly recommend this accommodation.
Lovely apartment in Trastevere, clean, with all utensils you can need, very good location (on one side, crossing one of the bridges, you can reach the Coliseum in a 10minutes walk, on the other side you will find yourself in the best place to have breakfast, have a beer or have dinner). We have walk the city from Joseph's apartment. We have felt really at ease with this apartment and we had no problem at all with any of the amenities. We do recomend this place.
Lovely, clean apartment that we had a comfortable stay in. The location was good, with a mini-market and good restaurants just downstairs, as well as a taxi stand and bus stops within walking distance. Joseph was friendly and waited for us although we were late, and obviously takes satisfaction in the presentation of his apartment. We were pleasantly surprised that it looks better than the photos, with plenty of sunlight and a comfy bed. Bathroom was clean and the internet, washing machine and heater worked fine. If we had to criticise, it would only be the shower not draining very well so we had to turn off the water every half-minute to prevent the shower tray from flooding. But that didn't detract at all from the more than pleasant stay we had.
Un accueil très sympathique de la part de Joseph. L appartement est extrêmement bien situé en plein cœur de (website hidden) calme en étant très proche de tout, restaurants, cafés, monuments. Nous avons pu visiter énormément de choses à pied.
Beaucoup de charme pour cet appartement et le lit est très très confortable. Je recommande à 100%
Joseph est une personne charmante et très disponible. Mon anglais n'étant pas fameux il a fait venir une interprète afin de communiquer impeccablement ! Le quartier est très bien situé. Accessible pour les nombreux monuments que comporte la ville à pied. Le tram et tout près si on le souhaite. Le quartier est aussi très vivant le soir. Le rapport qualité prix est excellent. À recommander !

Hooked on Rome because of the rich culture and history. Been here for years but still discovering new things every day. Food here is awesome.
