Beautiful apartment on local square
Spacious apartment right on Santa Maria de Trastevere square. Great restaurants right outside of the apartment and a quick walk to even more bars and restaurants. The neighborhood is incredibly picturesque and also full of sights and quiet side streets.
The apartment was very comfortable and well equipped. Great kitchen, comfortable bedroom and laundry/AC! Very friendly welcome by Mar
Felt like Home on the left side of the Tiber
Our host, Francesca, was AMAZING. She arranged for a taxi from Termini, for us. Then, when we arrived at the apartment, she had beer and a tasty snack for us to enjoy. Francesca carefully explained how to operate the washer (it also has a dryer), wifi and the other things about the space. In the past, I've been confused by the operation of European clothes washing machine - so her assistance was great.
The apartment was located on a piazza. So there was lots of activity going on in the square. There were kids playing, couples strolling, people dining, street performers entertaining . . .
One night, the celebration went on well past midnight. So if you are sensitive to noise, you might bring some ear plugs and a night mask. I was happy to have something to look are at almost anytime of the day. And was not bothered by the activity. Even watching the street cleaners scrambling around the plaza, in the morning was a hoot.
There are many nice restaurants within a five minute walk, coffee and gelato can be had right in the plaza. There is a supermarket about seven minutes walk away. The twisty roads surrounding the plaza enhance the European vibe.
The apartment was immaculate. It had everything we needed for a five night stay. It was like a second home. This apartment is not a cookie cutter hotel room. It has personality. There were warm hardwood floors, comfortable seating and plenty of storage. Some afternoons, we'd return from our Rome explorations -just to recharge for the evening. It felt comfortable. My wife would push her chair near the window, do needlepoint, and catch the action around the fountain. I may have taken a nap (according to my wife) but I don't remember it.
Lastly, after three weeks in Italy, I was craving some non-Italian food for a change. There is a small Mexican place, Pico's, about three minutes walk towards the river.
Before arriving all correspondence with the owner was informative and replies were received quickly. On arrival we were greeted by Marco who was warm and welcoming, he gave us a thorough tour of the apartment, which was even better than the photos. Marco also works in the restaurant below which gave us piece of mind in case of an emergency. It was very clean and fully equipped with everything we needed so it felt like a home. I was slightly worried if it would be big enough for two adults and two teenagers (14 & 18), as photos can be deceiving, but it was light and airy and very spacious. There was a nice place to sit in the kitchen by the window where I spent the early mornings! With regards to location it is set in a lovely square with plenty of good restaurants, shops, takeaways within a few steps from the door. The area is away from the main tourist attractions so wasn't over run with people but still had a lovely hustle and bustle feeling and really came alive at night. But a five minute walk and you are on the main street where trams and buses run frequently. We would take the short tram journey, (1.5 euros) and be within walking distance of the main sights within 5-10 minutes. I would highly recommend this apartment as it is also very competitively price and worth every penny. The apartment and location made me feel I was experiencing the true Rome which was exactly what I wanted! If I ever return to Rome I wouldn't want to stay anywhere else. Thank you Francesca it was my best holiday ever!
Dear Sharon, thank you very much for your lovely feedback. Best regards, Francesca
Enjoyable stay in Trastevere
We enjoyed our stay in this Trastevere apartment. The area is very nice. There are a lot of restaurants and shops nearby, and it was an easy walk to many of the great sites of Rome. There are also public transportation options available, but we mostly walked. Rome is great. There is so much to do! It would be a good idea to book tickets for some things in advance, though.
The apartment is very nice with a bedroom, bathroom, full kitchen, and living room. There is some noise from the square, but it wasn't unmanageable. The bed was comfortable, and the apartment is nicely decorated. There is a great grocery store close by with fresh pasta, cheese, salami, and more! I recommend the apartment for a Rome vacation.
Perfect Apartment in Trastevere
We stayed in this apartment for the holidays and didn't want to leave! Francesca was an amazing host and the apartment was clean, bright and felt like home. This apartment is in the heart of Trastevere, one of Rome's most vibrant and beautiful neighborhoods. It's right on the square of Santa Maria in Trastevere, a great location for looking over the bustling crowds and excitement. Would stay here again in a heartbeat, especially in the winter-time!
Thanks Caroline! you are very kind and perfect guests
Disfrutar del Trastevere
El apartamento de Francesca es ideal para pasar unos días en Roma. Tiene una situación inmejorable, cerca de todo. El sitio es pequeño pero perfecto para cuatro personas. Francesca nos proporcionó todo lo que necesitábamos y aunque no pudo estar para el check in, su amigo Marco fue encantador con nosotros y nos explicó todo detalladamente. Muchas gracias Francesca por hacer que este viaje haya sido maravilloso.
