What makes this Apartment unique
The Trastevere area resembles a traditional Southern-Italian village with narrow and winding cobblestone streets. Many visitors like to stay in a Rome apartment in the Trastevere area because of its dining, entertainment and cultural opportunities. It is a great place to spend all day walking and soaking up Italian living. Many tourists feel that this is the closest you can get to real Rome.

Great apartment location and host
Highly recommend this apartment. Loved Trastevere. We walked to a lot of the attractions. If you take the number 8 tram you can be in the centre of Rome in a few minutes.
Amazing location and comfort!
Loved this place! The hosts are very helpful with printed information that helps with the comfort of your stay! It was also quite helpful to be shown the property and how to use the remotes and basic things in the home upon check-in. Great hosts! Will definitely return when back to Rome!
The perfect spot and the perfect host.
Gianmarco was the best host. He communicated with us several times before our arrival, answering our questions and providing all the information we required. He was patient the day of our arrival and quite flexible when we were delayed at the airport. He met us outside the train station and walked us to the apartment. The apartment was just as pictured. It was clean and neat and had everything we needed for our stay. He provided breakfast foods, coffee, and water. He also provided a map and instructions for the mass transit system. We couldn’t be more pleased. Highly recommend.
We had a wonderful time in Italy it was our first trip. The apratment was just as it pictured and Gianmarco was so helpful and responded immediately. Great location for transportation to everything. Gianmarco was grasious enough to let us check out a little later due to our fight. He also provided great recommendations and map for our sightseeing. Thank you for your hospitality.
Nice place to stay!
This condo is very convenient to trams and trains (tram #8 takes you to Piazza Venizia in about 20 minutes). The bed was very comfy and the tiny kitchen provides a sink, 2 burners, 2 types of coffee makers, a small fridge and a small microwave/convection oven. Plates, some cooking utensils, cleaning supplies and paper towels awaited us. This kitchen was great for breakfasts- but didn't think it would be easy for making dinners. There are plenty of restaurants, coffee/ bakery shops and food markets nearby. There fold out king size hide-a-bed was very comfy. The A.C. worked well. The washer dryer combo was nice until it needed a repair. Gianmarco (owner)was very responsive to this and any questions or concerns. It is up 1 flight of stairs (called the first floor) without an elevator- so is not handicap accessible. The door into the building is off an alley- so I would not have felt that safe at night entering if I had been alone. It was pretty quiet and the owner kindly provided a basket of snack food and some bottled water and soda in the fridge. The shower (off the bedroom) has no soap dish or place to put shampoo bottles- which was akward. We bought a suction-on soap dish which was not very good. There are lots of folders with helpful info about Rome with maps and tour books as well as regular books. There was a TV with cable in the bedroom and living room ( had International BBC and CNBC). All in all it was a comfortable place to stay (stayed 2 weeks) and Gianmarco was wonderful to deal with.
Great place for city transit
This apartment is budget friendly and close to attractions of you are ok taking the transit system. If you are expecting to walk out your door to have many options to eat and explore I recommend you stay closer to the core. We had an elderly with us so had to take a taxi to anything of interest. The apartment was clean and owners accommodating but I had wished we stayed walking distance to the best areas. There is a great cafe on the corner open late night and early morning. Staying the last two weeks of August most shops in the area were closed. This is more of a local neighborhood. 3 of us stayed here comfortably and felt safe.
Entertainment in Trastevere:
A favorite place among many is Big Mama, where you can enjoy concerts playing jazz, rock and blues. Big Mama is a place where aspiring young singers hit the stage in the hopes of becoming famous. This is also a great area to go out for dinner. Not only are there plenty of authentic Italian restaurants with high-quality pizza and pasta dishes, but many of the restaurants open earlier than in other parts of Rome to cater to tourists. In other parts of Rome, it is rare to find Romans who eat before 8 p.m.
The Trastevere is known for delicious food and some of the best restaurants in Rome. The La Fraschetta is considered to have the best gnocchi in town and offers customers four different sauces to go with the gnocchi. Another restaurant, Ristorante Asinocotto, has dishes made with fresh produce, sourced at the owner's own farm.
