TRULY TRASTEVERE SCALA HOUSE

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Via della Scala, Rome, Lazio 00153, Italy

The Space

Studio della Scala is a perfect getaway for those who want to live the quintessential 'Trastevere' experience. Cozy, intimate, and very Roman!

Located in the heart of Trastevere, on the second floor of a typical historic XVII century building. Surprisingly silent (set on a pedestrian street, its windows and balcony leading out to the courtyard) the studio has been renovated a few years back (maintaining its characteristic charm, of course!) and is very well looked after. Upon entering you'll find yourself in a small corridor, then an open space living room with (working!) fire place, a double sofa bed, table and chairs. In an area separated from the main part is the 'bedroom' area with double bed. On the other side of the room, there's a bathroom (with bathtub) leading out to a small sunny balcony (facing the courtyard and equipped with chairs and a small table)) Exposed wood-beam ceiling, real parquet flooring, a tiny but well equipped kitchenette, a Tv & Dvd-Set, a Microwave, Washing Machine, Air conditioner, HeatingWi-fi Internet, Towels and Sheets, it's all there, as well as books for you to read, maps, information on the city.

Air conditioning keeps the apartment nice and cool in the summer while the fireplace and bathtub provide special charm during the colder months!

Trastevere is a historic neighborhood just across the river from the more conventional "Centro storico" of Rome. The Tiber river and two of Trastevere's most famous squares, Piazza Trilussa and Piazza Santa Maria in Trastevere, are each only about a 2 minute walk from the studio, and crossing one of the many bridges you'll be at Campo de' Fiori, Piazza Navona and the Pantheon in no time (less than 30 minutes by foot). Other sites such as the Vatican (about 40 minutes by foot or an easy bus ride), Castel S. Angelo and the Colosseum are also within easy reach.
The neighborhood used to be "blue-collar", and still today there's only small houses (most of them dating back to the XVII century) and cobblestone streets. It's what you imagine Rome to be: narrow streets, old little houses, Romantic piazzas (with warm orange street lights at night!), little cafes and restaurants, Roman lifestyle and of course (especially during high season) some tourists (how could they miss out on such a gem!). It's a nice mixture of 'real' and 'touristy' Rome, and definitely very picturesque.

There's also a lot of cultural events happening in the neighborhood (exhibitions, small movie theaters and theaters),  and interesting little unconventional shops all around.You won't miss a thing here (we hope): the kitchenette, although tiny, has everything one would need: pots, pans, cups, wine glasses, microwave, coffee-machine, teapot…and we always make sure it will be stocked with essentials such as coffee, tea, salt and oil

  • We had a great time in Rosana's little and quaint apartment. I stayed there for 6 nights with my husband and two adult children. The apartment is situated close to everything and in the cozy Trastevere. Perfect. We walked to all our destinations. We ended up eating all our dinners in Trastevere because we liked it so much. Rosana was good at responding quickly in good English. She arranged for a driver to pick us up in the airport for 40 Euro. Worked out perfectly. I would surely recommend this place.

  • Rosana and Laura's studio in Trastevere is the perfect place to stay during your visit to Rome! My boyfriend and I spent 10 nights here and enjoyed every moment of it. It is a short walk from very central sights, and we only used the Metro once during our whole stay because we were able to walk everywhere! The Trastevere neighborhood is bustling at all times of day...there are plenty of restaurants, bars, cafes, and grocery stores to keep you occupied. The bed was comfy, there was plenty of closet space to unpack your suitcase, a very fun little patio to relax on with a glass of wine in the evenings, and big, beautiful windows which we kept open to let in the breeze while we relaxed in the apartment. We cooked dinner a couple nights during our stay in the small but functional kitchen in this apartment. It was very clean and well-equipped with all the pots, pans and knives you need to cook, as well as an iron, hairdryer, and tea kettle. I would highly recommend you stay at Laura and Rosana's place, especially if you have a bit of a longer stay and would like some place that really feels like a home away from home!

    Laura and Rosana were both very easy to deal with, responded quickly to e-mails and inquiries, and even were kind enough to arrange a driver for a very low fee (cheaper than a taxi!) to and from the airport. Stay at this apartment, you will love it!

  • This is my first time using Airbnb and I couldn't be happier !! I stayed at Rosana's place for 6 nights. The apt was very clean and had everything I needed. From towels and shampoo to tea cookies and fresh fruit. Rosana also arranged for a guy to pick me up from the airport with a sign with my name and take me back to the airport when I left. I really can't think of one complaint that I have the whole experience was amazing and effortless !
    I would definitely stay there again if I come back to Rome. Thank you Rosana for everything

  • Ideally placed to explore all sites on foot by day and to eat great food on your doorstep at night.
    Rosanna is super helpful and the apartment is great: well placed, warm and with a hot bath for tired feet after traisping around Rome all day.
    You really feel as though you are in Rome, rather than a souless hotel which could be anywhere...thanks Rosana - will be back...

  • This apartment was very clean, centrally located in Trastevere, and well appointed. It is cozy and perfect for a visit to Rome. The hosts were on top of everything and made our stay exceptional. At night, it is a little dark, but that's a small issue given that everything else is so nice.

  • We had a great stay at Rosana & Laura's little flat in Trastevere. It was such a darling location, and the flat itself was cozy and charming. We were only there for one night, but we enjoyed experiencing this new, authentic part of Rome. The apartment itself was clean, the bed was comfy, and all was pretty self-explanatory. The only part that threw me off a little was not having hot water to shower before bed. But I figured this was something that came with the charm of the older style apartment-- really no biggie for me. Thanks Rosana & Laura! We had a great stay.
