This apartment was suitable, and relatively quiet. Our host graciously took time to orient us to Rome, even giving us a map and marking out important places. However, we felt the photos made the flat appear better maintained than it actually is. Also, this property is located on a lane with a healthy bit of nightlife; wasnt the quiet venue I was hoping for. It was dusty, the slipcovers are stained, and we found no laundry soap as well as an inadequate supply of toilet paper. Probably won't recommend it to friends.
Our family of three stayed here during the height of summer, for nearly a week, and we were pleased by the location of the unit, which is steps away from the action in Trastavere. While in need of TLC, read the June 2016 review by another guest for more on the condition of the apartment, as a base of operations for a short stay in Rome, this place would work just fine.
The Trastevere neighborhood is the place to stay; wonderful shops, restaurants and a lively night scene! I would definitely recommend staying in this area, however, keep looking you can find a better apartment. I could overlook the man selling sunglasses and selfie sticks right outside the apartment door, and the graffiti on the door to the building, and even the dingy staircase leading to the apartment, but once inside the apartment there was too much to look beyond. First off the terrace is very small and not at all private. The neighbor's window opens onto the terrace and while she was friendly and pleasant, her laundry (under garments included) and shoes hung from and sticking out the window made the view on the terrace less than desirable. Plus she leaned out the window onto the terrace and smoked, if you are a non-smoker this is definitely not a terrace for sitting. The apartment itself was spacious, but filthy. The rug that ran along the living area was so disgusting we rolled it up and put in the corner. The covers on the furniture were dirty. The small bathroom had mold running down the wall and the shower stall was full of mildew and didn't drain even after I removed the hair that was caught (not ours). The kitchen counters and dishes were coated with grime. The large bath was also very dusty/dirty and we had to clean before using. The sheets and towels provided did appear to be clean. Most of the light fixtures did not work and there were bare bulbs and wires hanging from the walls. There is AC in the living room only, the units had been removed from the bedrooms. I contacted the property asking about floor fans and never got a response. The electricity in the apartment is flaky. For 3 days of our stay it was off more than on, and be prepared to restart the water heater and flip breakers. With temps around 95F (35C) this made for a hot stay. The photos of the apartment were beautiful but deceiving (I took photos, but there is not a place to share them). I sent a few texts to the property after not getting a response from email, the only text that was answered was when I asked about garbage removal. Stay in Trastevere, you will not be disappointed, just keep looking for a cleaner place to stay.
The property is in the perfect location in the Trastavere region of Rome. The neighborhood is loaded with restaurants, bars and other places for food. It is within walking distance of most every site in Rome. There is a taxi stand 100 yards away that made it easy to get a taxi to go to places a little farther away. The property managers were very friendly and met us at the property. The photos and descriptions accurately describe the property. Excellent price given the location.
Our family of four had a wonderful stay here. It could not have been easier to check in and out, Bernardo met us as soon as we arrived. Two bedrooms and two baths were perfect for the four of us, plus there is a sleeper. We were in Italy for 10 days, so it was very convenient to have the opportunity to do laundry at the apartment. The neighborhood is perfect with restaurants everywhere and Rafael frescoes steps away at Villa Farnesina. We walked everywhere (Colesseo, Vatican, Spanish steps) from this location and really loved coming back in the evening to spread out and relax after a long day touring. Only reason its not 5 stars is because the air conditioning worked well but if you like it super cold, you had to sleep in the living room. We would definitely stay here again.
Pour ceux qui recherchent, l'authenticité, le charme et le confort, cet appartement est idéal. Parfaitement situé dans le très animé quartier de Trastevere, ce logement est un havre de paix et de faicheur. Très propre à notre arrivée, l'espace est très confortable pour 4 personnes, la literie impeccable et les 2 salles d'eau appréciables. Merci Raffaele pour ta ponctualité, ton accueil et ta disponibilité. Nous espérons revenir le plus vite possible !

While Rome seduces with its extraordinary monuments, Trastevere captures the traveler's heart. It is the most authentic and characteristic District within the Historic Center, the perfect place to glimpse the old world while enjoying the lifestyle of today's Romans. Often described as Bohemian, Trastevere maintains its character thanks to the old, narrow, winding, cobblestone streets. Homes decorated with flower boxes and clinging ivy interlace with coffee bars, restaurants, and one-of-a-kind boutiques.
The apartment is located in one of those small streets, next to the river and few meters away from the Tiberina Island. Thanks to its strategic location, you can reach within walking distance many astonishing places such as Campo de Fiori, Piazza Navona, the Pantheon, the Imperial Forum, the Coliseum and the Spanish Steps. Following the river Tiber for 15 minutes you may reach the Vatican and the Sistine Chapel. Passing through this magical place, senses are pleasantly awakened with every step.
