Overview

Rome Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

Enjoy the charm of an authentic Rome apartment!

Located right in the very center of Rome, in a tranquil cobblestone alley of the historic Trastevere area, this newly renovated and refurbished apartment combines the classic Roman charm of exposed original beams with the comfort and style of modern furnishings. This is an ideal typical holiday home to experience a great stay in the eternal city!

The area surrounding the apartment: The luxury suite apartment is situated in the heart of Trastevere, the picturesque medieval area located on the west bank of the Tiber. Part of the historical centre of Rome, Trastevere is the perfect place to glimpse a bit of the old world while still enjoying the lifestyle of today's Romans. From the cobblestone streets to the overhanging laundry lines, senses are pleasantly awakened with every step you take in this bohemian neighborhood.

Vicolo della Torre, where is located the apartment, represents everything mentioned above. It is the most photographed alley of Trastevere and you will feel very proud to have been chosen so popular and central location.

Equidistant from the Coliseum and the Vatican, Trastevere is an ideal place to discover the secrets of Rome on foot. Saint Peter and the Vatican city are about twenty minutes away and upon crossing the Tiber you get to Campo dei Fiori, Piazza Navona, the Spanish Steps, the Roman Forum, and many other sights, in no time at all (15 to 30 minutes walks). If you want to take public transportation, the area is extremely well served by the electric buses of Rome.

A few blocks from the apartment, you can find the outdoor market of Piazza San Cosimato, where tented booths display a bountiful array of tantalizing fruits and vegetables, or the Piazza Santa Maria in Trastevere, the most popular gathering place in the area. In this square you will find the church Santa Maria in Trastevere, one of the oldest and most beautiful churches in Rome and very much worth a visit.

The area becomes very lively at night as it is full of trendy bars and dozens of quality restaurants and pizzerias, where you can taste great Italian food at reasonable prices.

If you are looking for a very special accommodation, with all the charm and soul of old Rome yet with all the comfort and convenience of modern amenities, then the Trilussa apartment will surely delight you. Trilussa is the name of a famous Roman poet.

The apartment:

This charming apartment is located on the ground floor of a typical house of 1800 and enjoys a private entrance in additional to the secluded location that makes it not so noisy in a lively neighborhoods. This will allow you to sleep at night, advantage that few holiday rentals can offer in Trastevere.

The house is a confortable little suite, very modern and all renovated, pecfect for a couple or 3 persons of the same family. There is a bed room with a king size bed and a living room with a sofa bed, very well equiped with Tv with a satelite to enjoy your programs all over the world, and wireless internet free and a Nespresso coffee machine with complimentary Italian coffee.

The luxury suite has just come out of a full renovation ( December 2015 ) and represents a quintessential Trastevere apartment. The rustic tile floor and the original ceiling beams bring a delightful sense of Roman history, harmoniously matched by the contemporary colors and elegant furnishings. Guests will feel completely at ease from the moment they walk in, thanks to the captivating and warm atmosphere. The living-dining area of this apartment is welcoming and inviting the guests to relax after trekking around Rome historical centre. In this area you can find a double leather sofa bedt, one single leather sofa, a coffee table and a plasma TV. The open kitchen is fully equipped with everything guests may need for daily living and it features a countertop and two stools to enjoy a breakfast or a dinner.

About Romula Giannotti

My name is Romula and with my husband Claudio we were 32 year owners of a travel agency which is located near the Vatican. That job kept us continually in contact with people for whom we organized travels all over the world. We are fluent in three languages: Italian, French and English, so we can also help you with all of your travel throughout Italy . You can ask our opinion on your stay in Rome or on your trip in Italy, how to divide the days into the differents cities, how to join the different places, how to decide if it is better to go by car or by train, or any other question !!! We just want 2 things :

1) to rent our 2 houses in Rome, the second one is located in the same lane Vicolo della Torre 12, you can visit the site homeaway #3571450

2) that you enjoy your stay in Rome and your trip in Italy !!! Dont hesitate to contact us !!!!

Romula Giannotti purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Romula Giannotti chose Rome

To deversify the tourism activity in a lovely city like Rome, I decided to invest in this tourism concept of vacation rental, trying to give the best of hospitality to our guests for a unforgetable holiday in the heart of the 'Eternel City' Trastevere !

We meet all our guests upon arrival to give them all the explications that they need to enjoy their stay, we offer them our avaibility for each kind of request as buy train tickets, leave their luggage in a little deposit to enjoy their last day in Rome, organize private cooking lessons, private day trips, wine tastings, transfers from and to the airport or the port of Civitavecchia where cruises depart for the Mediterranean, any service that can facilitate their stay in Rome.

What makes this apartment unique

The suite apartment is situated in the heart of Trastevere, very lively at night as it is full of trendy bars and quality restaurants frequented by tourists and Italians too. It is a typical house of the 1800, all renovated inside, located in the most beautifull alley of Trastevere, constantly photographed for its uniqueness. The bedroom is overlooking the courtyard of San Gallicano hospital, today is an historical monument, so my guests can sleep very well without being disturbed by noise that lasts all night in this very special neighbourhour of Rome, especially in summer.

An other benefit is that I have 2 houses in the same lane Vicolo della Torre (www.homeaway.com/228988 and www.homeaway.com/3571450) where 2 couples of friends travelling together can stay in their complete independence while being together.

Great location, charming apartment and wonderful hosts.

  • 5 of 5

We fell in love with the property just looking at the pictures and the reality didn't disappoint. First of all it's a terrific location right in the middle of Trastevere and it's very easy to walk almost anywhere from there.

The apartment itself was small but with absolutely everything you might want. The owners, Romula and Claudio have thought of every detail. It's also very clean and I believe recently redone. A jewel! Romula and Claudio are extremely welcoming and helpful. They take pride in their property and their city and they go above and beyond what one might expect to make your stay as pleasant as can be. They spent lots of time with us upon arrival to give us tips such as the best restaurants or the sights to see. We can only hope now that we will be back to Rome soon and to this property for sure!

Perfection in Trastevere!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this little gem, warm and cosy, perfectly situated for exploring Rome. The apartment was clean and very well maintained, with everything we needed for our week in Rome. There were a lot of little extra touches which made our stay rather special. Our hosts, Romula and Claudio were extremely friendly and always willing to help, giving us lots of information on local restaurants and helped with maps and local travel around the city. Romula was always quick to answer my emails re my daily questions.

We would stay here again and definitely recommend it to others.

Thank you so much Romula and Claudio for your kindness and wonderful hospitality!

SUPERBE EMPLACEMENT A ROME ET JOLIE LOGEMENT

  • 4 of 5

Nous venons de passer une semaine dans cette location. Le descriptif ainsi que les photos sont conforme à la location. Tout est fait pour que vous passiez un superbe séjour. Le quartier est animé et à proximité de tous. Il vous faudra maximum 30' à pied pour aller au plus loin des sites à visiter (villa médicis, vatican...).

L'accueil a été très chaleureux et les propriétaires ont été d'excellent conseil. Sans hésité je recommande fortement ce logement.

De plus, l'accès de l'aéroport Flaminio est très simple avec le train et le tram qui vous pose à 2 mn de l'appartement, vraiment idéal.

Bonne vacances, et merci pour tous les bons conseils

Can't beat the location and service!

  • 4 of 5

Our hosts were very generous in spending time with us, gave us a map with what to do and where to eat. EVERYTHING is within walking distance. We booked both this apartment as well as another they have in the same alley. The reviews arent kidding about the photos- tourists love this alley and we did a lot of Canadian photobombing.

The apartment had everything we needed. We had no trouble with finding anything. The owners have done a beautiful job in decorating the apartment.

The only downside was that it was a bit dirty. They definitely had gone through since the last tenants, but there were dustbunnies under couches and a bit of mold in the shower. These happen in our own houses, and It was not by any means filthy. I alerted our hosts and I'm sure they've taken care of it by now.

I would stay here again and definitely recommend. It is an excellent price given the size and location. We appreciated their expertise in how to do Rome!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is perfectly situated for exploring Trastavere and Rome. Our hosts, Romula and Claudio met us on arrival and spent time answering our questions as well as showing us the apartment. They really go above and beyond, providing restaurant suggestions, information re transit - they honestly were some of our best hosts! The apartment is very clean and welcoming, with a host of thoughtful touches - robes, shower shoes, EVOO, wine, coffee,tea and a welcome bottle of wine. Their consideration and kindness is truly outstanding!

A delightful apartment situated on a charming street!

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay in this lovely apartment. The hosts Romula and Claudio were there to greet us

when we arrived. We were taken by their warmth and their generosity of spirit. They both made us feel very much

at home. The place was very clean and well appointed. It suited our needs perfectly. Our time time in Rome

was nothing short of magical. We LOVED Trastevere and what it had to offer with its history, the lively streets,

restaurants, eclectic shops and of course, the beautiful Basilica Santa Maria, one of the oldest churches

in Rome. We highly recommend this apartment and would come back in a heartbeat! Thanks so much for

everything, Romula and Claudio! It was a pleasure meeting you!
