About the property

2 levels apt. of 60 sqm with furnitures and antiques - 2 bathrooms - veranda

A delightful private two level apartment, with typical wooden beamed ceilings, parquet flooring and fully furnished with antiques. Fisrt floor.

An original stone staircase takes you up to the interior of this cozy apartment. A hideaway for those seeking a special experience in Rome.

A spacious living room with a gas fireplace, a comfortable seating and dining area introduce you to this picturesque apartment.

The double sofabed in front of the gas fireplace makes the accommodation suitable for four people though we suggest they should be close friends or family, as the main bedroom in the loft overlooks the living room.

A wooden staircase leads to the loft where you will find a comfortable double bed, wardrobe and a bathroom with shower.

The access of the second bathroom with tub is from the dining area on the main floor.

A modern and well equipped small kitchen with dish washer, electric oven (well-working) , refrigerator and gas stove overlooks the dining room.

The family area in the living room opens onto a charming private little balcony, overlooking a quiet and green internal courtyard. A small gem in this area of Rome.

The centralized location of the appartment makes it a perfect base for strolling out to explore all parts of Rome’s city center. The Trastevere area is a maze of small streets and pretty allies where you can find cafes, open markets, restaurants and boutiques. Notwithstanding, Via della Gensola is a very quite street where you can sleep soundly.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A beautiful vintage styled apartment in a great location. The lovely wooden antique furniture and old fashioned wooden décor (we loved the creaky staircase!) really made my wife and I feel like we were "living" in Italy. Olivia our hostess was the best of our entire trip to Italy, giving us great insights into hidden gem local restaurants and wonderful sights to see that are often not listed online. Everything in the kitchen worked perfectly and it was well stocked with what we needed to cook our own meals if we chose to. We would definitely stay again and recommend to others

Your Roman Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

Ideal if you wish to spend 3 or more days in Rome. Trastevere is a good location and the apartment is ideallly situated, being right in the heart of the vibrant Trastevere area. Restaurants galore, close to public transport (tram/busses), taxi rank also close by (taxis are cheap in Rome) & there is a small shop very close for your everyday essentials.

The apartment is essentially that seen in the photos and importantly, has air conditioning if you are visiting during the summer. One word of warning though, it is situated on the third floor and there are three flights of steps to negotiate, so if you have difficulty carting up luggage, this apartment may not be ideal for you.

I think ideallly it is most suited to couples, with the bedroom (double bed) & a bathroom on the mezzanine floor, which overlooks the living area below. An extra guest (child maybe) could sleep on the fold-out couch in the living room, but otherwise, not a lot of privacy for more than two couples. A second bathroom is located off the main living area. Internet is available, but connection is a bit iffy. Could not connect the first day we arrived.

We loved our short three night stay in Trastevere and the apartment was an excellent base to explore the area and beyond & to return to after your day out. Penty of places close by to relax & enjoy a pleasant evening drink or to enjoy outdoor dining, which is so pleasant in Rome during the warmer months.

Would definitely consider staying here again when we next visit Rome.

Relaxing Rome base in Trastevere

  • 5 of 5

On a quiet street in Trastevere with nice restaurants just a few steps away in Piazza della Gensole, this apartment was a perfect base for our Rome explorations. There is a taxi stand at the end of the street, but we mostly set out on foot, to Campo dei Fiori, Piazza Navone, the Pantheon, the Jewish Quarter, the Forum. It was always sweet to come back across the river on one of two bridges to our sweet flat. And at night we slept soundly on our quiet street.

The apartment has a rustic ancient design with lots of wood and antiques, had every convenience we needed, and was spotlessly clean. It is the perfect size for a couple. We were greeted warmly by the lovely Breysis, even though our late train and a taxi strike made our arrival a little late. Olivia was available by phone to ask for advice about how to navigate a planned demonstration in Rome. We fell well cared for. We were pleased to find that the wifi works very well, as we had to fit in a little work. The bed has good reading lights and a fun collection of books, and the two bathrooms were very convenient, one with a big tub! I cooked a few breakfasts and late night dinners in the wonderful little red kitchen, with produce from the small shopkeeper right around the corner. The apartment felt like home, molto grazie!

Well located

  • 4 of 5

This is a very well located apartment on the edge of Trastevere on a quiet street. The listing is acurate. The kitchen is quiet small with little counter space. The apartment could be improved by providing a couple of good reading lamps on the ground floor and by removing a piece of furniture that is dangerously in the way at the top of the stairs.

A fine Aerie in Trastevere!

  • 5 of 5

We (a California couple in our 50's) spent a wonderful week in this apartment. We’d come back anytime! Upon arrival Olivia greeted us happily and oriented us to the place, and to the beautiful neighborhood. The location is perfect, hidden in a quiet corner yet near a couple bridges and taxi stand, and a short walk to all the commerce you might need.

It’s very roomy for two, with all the appointments you could want, including the two bathrooms (great shower in the bed loft loo, nice tub downstairs.)

The bed - a vital element, and a gamble when renting from afar! - was about queen size, comfy and relatively firm, just as we like it! Reading lights on both sides, a wardrobe cabinet, nice pillows, it was like being at home - in Rome!

The pictures don’t really show that there's plenty of good natural light there, and the windows afford great ventilation, too. Laundry on the back porch was easy, (water the plants!) This particular little corner of Trastevere seemed quiet, peaceful and relaxed, compared to just a street away. And yet so close to Everything!

We loved the kitchen, small but fully equipped. We didn’t cook as much as we had intended (too many great restaurants nearby!) but the kitchen was fully equipped (we did add a plastic cutting board to supplement the wood one, and we replenished the oil, vinegar and coffee, as had others before us.) We found everything we needed to make a mushroom risotto, omelets, salads, breakfasts, drinks, etc.

And, naturally, great restaurants are there, too. In particular, we loved Hosteria Gensola, literally part of the same stone structure, steps away, with superb - really superb - seafood, and great service!

Of course there are plenty of markets to buy fresh produce and baked goods. Very quickly we became familiar with the local shops and etc., and felt like we were living in a neighborhood, not just passing through (which of course we were...)

And the tourism materials were very helpful along with Olivia’s great tips, also the nice collection of smart (including english language) books. We swapped a couple, and left some travel books too.

Note the television (which has local channels) also has an HDMI port, so one can watch on-line or saved material via one’s computer, including photos or videos etc. - if you bring (or buy) an HDMI cable.

Don’t rent this place - if it’s when we’re coming back to Roma - because this is where we want to stay when we return!
