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

The perfect apartment in a perfect location with perfect hosts. What more do I need to say?
THe location was perfect and the apartment as charming as you would hope. I definitely would recommend this to anyone traveling alone or with one other person. A wonderful stay, thank you Rosana!
Amazing stay! the apartment is so cute and cosy, and i doubt there can be a better location in all Rome. very charming street in a great area. It is possible to walk everywhere. Rosana is a sweetheart, very helpuful all the time, and very quick to answer always. She really loves the apartment and takes care of it and of her guests very well. i definitely recommend it, and if i come back i will absolutely stay there again. cordious!!
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.
Really nice appartment in the middel of trastevere! Would definately come back here!
The apartment is located in a lovely part of Rome - we were able to walk to the sights at the center within 20 minutes, and still come back to a relaxed, old-time neighborhood with bars open until about 2 am, little gelatarias and pizzerias. We walked around saw the church, visited a lovely photo exhibition at the museum and of course gorged on food - tons of options here! We didn't get to meet Rosana, but she was very prompt, sweet and helpful with all our queries. The apartment is a well-kept old one - with a fireplace, a spacious bathroom and a small balcony beyond that too. Comfortable stay! For tourists in Rome, we recommend reading the material available at the apartment - the Luxe guide to Rome and Rick Steve's guide to art in the city, especially. Thanks Rosana! For the bottle of wine too!
We had a wonderful time. The apartment was clean and very well located. The bed was unbelievably comfortable. Rosana was very helpful and extremely responsive. I would definitely stay in this apartment again.
Very nice and helpful host. Apartment in a great location in Trastevere. Will come again when in Rome.
