We had a wonderful stay in Trastevere. Thanks to Metella for being very responsive and helpful, and for arranging our taxi return to the airport. The guide books and prior guests notes were great. The apartment is as described and decorated in fine taste. The water pressure and ac were great. The apartment's location is convenient to many of the sites on both sides of the river, and a quick walk to the very heart of Trastevere. We would stay here again.
The listing was as advertised. Our host was helpful and available. The neighborhood was centrally located to everywhere we wanted to go. A very good experience.
It was our first time staying in Trevestere, it was interesting, but we are not quite sure if we would return to the same district next time. We loved the small cafes and restaurants at our door step, but it was a very long walk in the busy main road to the nearest supermarket, and although we felt safe, we came across a number of homeless people sleeping in the streets nearby in our early morning walk.
The compact apartment itself was perfect for our needs this time, as it was a short stay and we did not cook any meals. Wifi worked well. There was a problem with the electricity that it kept tripping in the apartment when we wanted to use air-cons (outside temperature was over 33 degrees). This would have been a serious problem if it had happened at night as well with no supply of torch to fix this.
The apartment would be suitable only for young, very fit adults, as it is on the top floor with many flights of stairs and no lift - we found it just too hard for stepping in & out of the street each time.
Metella was excellent with prompt communication and helpful when we had to book transport. A bottle of red wine left in the room was a nice gesture. Thank you!
The apartment was just as beautiful as the pictures and couldn't have been more perfect for our four days in Rome. Metella was an outstanding host, so helpful, going above and beyond what was necessary to make sure we felt comfortable and at home! We would come back anytime! A five star home!
Everything worked perfectly with Metella, she was waiting for us when we arrived and showed around the place. The apartment was excellent and in a nice location. There were many small restaurants in the blocks surrounding the (website hidden) Lillo served us coffee next door in the mornings. The east side of Trastevere is great, it is close to everything but it is less crowdy than the other side of the Viale di Trastevere. The place was equipped with a small kitchenette with pans, knives, stove, fridge, etc. We prepared small meals at the apartment. The wifi worked well. When you close the windows, the place is calm and quiet. I would definitely recommend the place!
Metella and her husband were friendly and efficient. We texted from the taxi leaving the airport, and Antonio was there to meet us as the cab pulled up. The departure was equally easy, with Metella kindly booking our taxi by phone.
It's a nice apartment in a great part of Trastevere. There are relaxed cafes, bars and restaurants within a minute's walk, so it's lively but without feeling part of the tourist industry. We would definitely recommend.
Metella's apartment is extremely tasteful and well appointed. The layout allows each individual party privacy and comfort. Having stayed in Trastevere previously, I suspect that a modern 2 BDR/2BA oasis such as this is a rare find. Delightful details from the curtain holders to the cutlery will leave you smiling, thanks to Metella's background in design. She was also very communicative at all times and helpful in arranging transport to Fiumicino. Would definitely return for another stay when next in Roma!
We had a great stay in this appartment. It perfectly corresponds to the description. The location is perfect for visiting Rome, and Metella was very accurate and helpful... Many thanks!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Metella's flat, which was elegantly furnished (including original contemporary art works), well equipped, comfortable and clean. It's within easy walking distance of the historic centre and conveniently located in a relatively quiet part of Trastevere, near shops and restaurants. There were helpful guide books and maps, as well as an umbrella and rain jackets - very useful on the one day it rained. Would recommend a stay very highly.
Location, location, location! This apartment in Trastevere is within walking distance of the Ancient Rome sites, Vatican City, shopping and other central districts. Trastevere itself is quaint and full of little shops and neighborhood restaurants and bars. We enjoyed it immensely. The apartment is comfortable, with a small wall kitchen unit. We did not cook so it was adequate for making tea and snacks. My friend and I each had our own bedroom and bath - nice privacy at the end of the day. Bring earplugs. There's lots of street noise, especially from two cafes down below.
Metella is a gracious host and met us when we arrived and came to say goodbye when we left.
