Map

Car: not necessary

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.

BEAUTIFUL! It was so clean and had everything we needed

  • 5 of 5

I am obsessed with where the apartment is located, the street it's on is charming and there are lots of restaurants and shops to walk to. We also felt like we were close enough to walk to the big sites as well (they were about 30-40 minute walks) but walking around Rome is half the fun! The bed was the comfiest one we had while in Italy! We would stay again in a heartbeat!

Did not meet our expectations. We had much better experiences at other rentals!

  • 3 of 5

I was expecting an outstanding stay at Lungaretta 3 based on previous reviews I had read, all giving this apartment 5 stars, which led me to promptly book this rental. I must say my family was a little disappointed with our experience! There was some difficulty with communication with our apartment assistant upon our scheduled arrival time. He was not at the apartment when we got there at the time I had indicated and I initially only had an email to communicate through. We waited for him as long as we could, but eventually had to leave with all our luggage, and head off to the Vatican as we had a scheduled tour for which at this point we were rushing to . This resulted in us having to check all our luggage in the Vatican storage area and costing us additional money as cab drivers charge extra for the luggage in both directions. He was there to check us in when we returned from our tour. Upon check in I was told the cleaning fee was 8 euros more than I was originally quoted and the agency would not honor the quoted price even though I presented a receipt.

As for the apartment itself, the living room area and the bedroom were clean and bright as pictured. The master bed was comfortable and the airconditioning in the master bedroom was sufficient to cool the bedroom, but did not cool the whole apartment leaving the living room area warm. My teenage daughters slept on the pull out sofa bed in the living room for 3 nights and did not find it comfortable. The airconditioning ducts are exposed running through the kitchen ceiling adjacent to the living room and noise could be heard all through the night. The bathroom could have been cleaner as the shower curtain liner was discolored and slimey from moisture, in need of replacement. The bathroom counter top was old and cracked. There was 4 bath towels and 4 face towels for 4 people for 3 nights. I asked the assistant if we could get another towel each, but I was told we would have to pay extra for them. When we arrived the bathroom had no facial tissue, 1 half used toilet tissue on the wall and one small spare which ran out on the second day. When I requested more toilet tissue from the assistant I was told "The agency provides only for a courtesy supply, no more than this". We had to purchase our own toilet paper! The smell of cigarette smoke filled the apartment in the evenings, perhaps coming from the stairwell or another apartment. Would not stay here again.

Owner's Response: Dear guest, We are sorry you didn’t enjoy your stay at Lungaretta, it is the first time in 4 years that someone didn’t like the apartment or our service. Please give me the possibility to answer your complaints: after each reservation of each guest, we always send a booking confirmation voucher with all the important information regarding the check-in and suggestions for their stay. In that document we ask our guests to call/text when they are on their way to the flat. This is to confirm they will be at the flat at the arranged time. We knew that you were landing at 10.30am: by midday we still hadn’t heard from you so we tried to call multiple times with no answer. Our colleague waited for you for more than one hour then he left because another guest was arriving to another apartment. We heard from you only in the afternoon. The cleaning fee of 65 Euro is (still) clearly shown online... we also forwarded you the email we exchanged and there is no reference of a cleaning fee of 57 Euro. The air conditioning unit is located also in the living room, not only in the bedroom. We provide 3 towels per person per stay, not only 1. Please consider that you have booked a self-catering apartment: we provide only a courtesy supply of toilet paper, soap and shampoo at check-in. But being a self-catering apartment, guests should provide all they need for the sojourn by themselves, including toilet paper. The apartment is strictly no-smoking, if someone smokes on the street we cannot control it.The attention to our guest is what made the difference in our work, you can see the hundreds of great reviews we have collected in all the properties we manage.Again, we are sorry that you didn’t enjoy your stay. We still hope to host you again in the future Kind regards

Great location! Great apartment!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was very conveniently located to several eateries and restaurants. Check-in was super easy. The apartment was very clean and well stocked with all the essentials. We loved having the air conditioning and a washer & dryer! Would certainly stay here again!

perfect

  • 5 of 5

great location, everything worked, clean and lovely. Needs to feel a little bit more like a home, rather a speculated apartment from a real estate owner. Pretty, but quite barren and a lacks warmth. But we had a great time and I would recommend it.

Delightful indeed!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment has an extremely well-equipped kitchen, is bright and air-conditioned (even in mid-May Rome can be really hot), and has an enormous amount of storage space. The owner is gracious, and the greeter is efficient and friendly. We had a little dishwasher problem, but it was quickly fixed and we received a discount. Because it is a third-floor apartment (fourth, by American floor count), the elevator is a good thing to have for those of us who bring more luggage than they should.

Once you close the double-glazed windows, it is surprisingly quiet -- surprisingly because the Via della Lungaretta is filled with tourists starting around noon. They keep themselves busy until midnight visiting the zillions of shops and restaurants. After a day of Rome, you need peace and quiet because this is a town where sotto voce is not practiced, and this place gives you that peace and quiet. Just being able to open the front door and entering the cool hallway, extricating yourself from the stream of tourists, is a privilege.

The location is superb: about 30 minutes walking from the Colosseo and Foro Romano, 40 minutes from the Vatican, a 5-minute walk to a taxi stand. And, of course, in the heart of Trastevere.
