About This Listing
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, 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 a Microwave, Air conditioning, independent heating, Wi-fi Internet, Towels and Sheets, it's all there, as well as books for you to read, maps, information on the city.
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…
Early or late check-ins will be accommodated whenever possible (depending on check-out time of former guests); for check-ins after 8 pm we might have to ask you for a fee of 25 Euros.
We had a wonderful stay! Rosana made our arrival and departure easy and smooth. The apartment fit our needs perfectly and we had a great time exploring the Trastevere neighborhood. Thank you!
We traveled throughout Europe on a trip through France, Switzerland and Italy and this apartment was our most favorite. The location is wonderful right in the middle of the bustling Trastevere neighborhood. Rosana was very helpful and responsive and made us feel welcome. The apartment is clean and truly felt like a personal Italian living space. We didn't want to leave and would come back in a heartbeat!! Thanks Rosana for a wonderful apartment and experience!
Rosana was an incredible host and extremely understanding.She was patient and through. I would highly recommend as the apartment is beautiful as well!
Trés bon séjour dans l'appartement de Rosana qui est idéalement situé dans quartier trés vivant avec les principaux monuments de la ville accessibles à pied. L'appartement est bien agencé et agréable. C'est trés bon rapport qualité prix pour Rome, je vous le conseille vivement.
Rosana was so helpful. She did not meet us there but kept in regular contact with us through messaging and had her friend meet us for check in. She was flexible with checkin and checkout, allowing us to keep our bags there while we further explored Rome. As others have said, she offered the services of a taxi driver she knows who is cheaper than airport taxis for our airport pickup and dropoff. Her apartment was perfectly located, clean and cozy and wonderfully designed. She had a guide in her home advising you on good restaurants, how to use the apartment and other helpful information. The neighbourhood was safe and lively. Would recommend to stay here again.
Nice little place with everything we needed in a cool area. It is a very compact space, but it is well organized. We made breakfast in the kitchen and found all of the utensils we needed. The WiFi connection was strong and reliable. It is a lively area, so we did hear music from the streets in the evening, but it died down before too late. The communication with Rosanna was prompt, thorough, and helpful.
