I can speak English and French currently and I know Rome deeply, I currently work in fashion
Pasamos 3 noches en el apartamento de Ilaria, todo fue genial! Estuvimos en contacto en todo momento. El apartamento es precioso y bien situado en el barrio del trastevere. Recomendado al 100%. Grazie mille!!!
This apartment was perfect for our two night stay. Great location, great host, great layout. We brought our 2.5 year old who loved the "flying bed" - albeit under a watchful eye! Popping over to Campo de' Fiori for fresh produce was easy. We cooked some nice meals "at home" as well as sampling the local restaurants. We look forward to being back!
We had a lovely time. The flat is gorgeous and cosy, in just the best location for a weekend (or longer in Rome). Ilaria came to meet us on arrival with her husband with a big smiley welcome and was super helpful in advising on where to eat etc...She also gave us a pack of printed advise to visit the city. It felt more than just renting a flat. We felt very welcome. Would go again in a heart beat
I stayed in Illaria's apartment with 3 friends and we all absolutely enjoyed our stay! The apartment is lovely and Ilaria is a very nice and helpful host! The location is superb, as well! Plenty of nice restaurants and bars around. I highly recommend Illaria's place! Thank you!
L'appartement est très bien situé proche de tout sans être au cœur de l'agitation. Il est vaste, très confortable, bien équipé et joliment rénové. Idéal pour un séjour en couple ou en famille.
Ilaria est une hôte disponible et agréable elle nous a très bien accueillis à Rome.
We had a fantastic weekend with my mother at Ilarias beautifull apartment! At the very clean and cozy rooms we felt like at home. Ilaria welcomed us very warmly and helped us immediately when we had some questions.
Trastevere is a great place to stay! And this apartment is at the best place of Trastevere. I really recommend it! Thank you, Ilaria, for our best time in Rome!
Ilaria was a great host: arranging transportation, walking us through the apartment and checking up on us, providing information on things to eat, do and see and how to get there, etc.
Her apartment is also very nice: a charming old building with a comfy bed in a great location in Trastevere. It's a very short walk to lots of restaurants down one of the cobbled streets. Internet worked great, and the shower was OK.
One thing to keep in mind: it's on the first and second floor, doesn't really have any sound insulation to speak of, and there is some street noise from people at night - so if you're a light sleeper that could be an issue (we were OK). On the upside, that means you don't have a ton of stairs to walk up after walking around town all day.
Would we stay here again on a return trip to Rome? Definitely.
Response from Ilaria:
Thanks Nathan and say hallo to your wife!!!
Trastavere was the perfect place to stay in Rome and Ilaria and Roberto the perfect hosts. The flat is in the "happening" part of Rome, close to good restaurants, bars and shops. The flat is charming but has also been modernised and is well designed. It is clean and has all the amenities required. Information about both the flat as well as the area are set out clearly. I couldn't recommend it more highly.
We had a fantastic time at Ilaria's. We've been to Rome a few times, and I now think Trastevere is the very best place to stay. It is close enough to walk to all the main attractions, but still feels a bit like a 'local' area. There are lots of bars and cafés and restaurants all over Trastevere. Ilaria's apartment is one lane back from the really crowded ones, so it isn't too noisy. And Ilaria is a perfect host. She is always available on email and quick to answer any questions before and during our stay. The apartment is perfect - it feels like Rome. I am an Airbnb host in Sydney and it has been interesting to be on the other side of the equation - I might have to try a bit harder to be as good as Ilaria. If you are looking for somewhere to stay in Rome, stop looking. Just book this one now.
Our favourite airbnb place so far! The location is brilliant in Trastevere - easy walk to all Rome's major attractions and a wonderful neighbourhood to live in. The apartment is fantastic - clean, lots of room, good sized bathroom, all the amenities, comfortable beds, and on top of all that it is just a cool place to be, with its design, furniture and art. And Ilaria is a perfect host - helpful, interested, informative and responsive, while leaving us feeling totally relaxed and at home. There is some noise at night, but I don't know where in Trastevere or Rome you wouldn't get as much or more - and we honestly (and most unusually for us) didn't care, we enjoyed the apartment and surroundings so much. You can walk back from your day in Rome and enjoy dinner within a minute of home, or you can walk 10 minutes to a supermarket and other food shops and cook at the apartment, which has everything you'll need. There are lots of other shops very nearby, and Trastevere is a great place to just walk around. Have to also mention the private car ride Ilaria organised to get us to the airport - it was first class and good value. We'd love to come back again, and would highly recommend this flat. It's worth mentioning that the loft bed is close to the ceiling and up small steps so that wouldn't suit everyone, but as a family of four we were really happy here.
Ilaria e Roberto sono una coppia affabile,educata e simpatica . Che dire di piu' ... Spero di incontrarli presto !!
It has been a real pleasure to host Ilaria and her daughter. Genuine, nice, and friendly. They took good care of the flat leaving it in perfect conditions. Hope to see them again in the future. Strongly recommended.
