I love Rome and I used to live there till the 2009 , than almost one year in the USA and now again in Rome !!!!!
Cecilia purchased this Apartment in 1993
Why Cecilia chose Rione XIII Trastevere
This apartment was a gift for my 18th birthday from my mum. I use to live there for almost 8 years than I had to change house ( 1 husband 1 cats 1 dog and now 2 babies ). Than I decided to rent that one.

A quiet haven in a busy location
Off a really busy and noisy street, go through a large door and you are in the quiet communal courtyard where you will find this apartment.
This flat is a generous size and with a small table and chairs outside it is perfect for springtime in Rome. The bedroom is in the eaves and but has air conditioning for those hot nights. Both the kitchen and bathroom are good sizes.
It is an easy to spend some social time in the living space as the sofa is huge and the dining table a good size.
The apartment is perfectly situated for walking to most of the main sites. But the excellent bus and tram service nearby makes it easy to get around.
This is a great apartment if you like a buzzy area filled with restaurants and bars.
Cecilia was a charming and helpful hostess.
Lovely apartment, great location
This was the first time I had stayed in the Trastevere area while visiting Rome and found it to be a fascinating location and wonderful apartment, especially with the lovely, private courtyard tucked away from the hustle and bustle. A nice retreat after being out and about in Rome.
Lots to Recommend, But Needs Some TLC
My husband and I stayed here for 8 nights in April. Elena was waiting for us when we arrived and was very friendly and helpful. This is a nice apartment...or likely was at one time, and there are both pros and cons. First the pros: location is great. We walked most places in the city and if it was too far, there was a taxi rank down the street. Although the street is lively and commercial, the apartment was very quiet and safe, in the far back of a courtyard behind a locked door and a gate. Restaurants, bakery and cafes are very close.
Cons: First, it's important to know that the sleeping loft has a very low beamed ceiling. Really low. I'm 5'2" and could not stand straight up in some places. My husband who is 5'9" got up from the bed one night and slammed his head hard. This could be an issue for tall folks. The kitchen is woefully lacking. Although I did not come to Rome to cook (who would?), I always rent apartments when in Europe to be able to make breakfast, snacks and simple meals occasionally. The kitchen had two spoons and two forks; no spatula, no sharp knives to slice bread, and a plastic toaster that we could not get to work. The bed did not have a blanket, just a light bedspread. We were chilly, so found a cotton bedspread in a drawer downstairs to use, but no extra blankets. This could be a lovely apartment, but it needs a bit of sprucing up. It feels neglected. The couch was stained; the portable CD player had no wire to plug in so was useless; the corner in the courtyard belonging to the apartment needed sweeping and had uncomfortable folding chairs that had not been cleaned and so was not conducive to sitting out. Some care and attention would go a long way toward making this rental worth the price.
Nice Apartment! Great Stay!
My dad and I stayed here for a few nights in March; I slept on the couch, which was very comfortable! The apartment was large for Italian standards and had every amenity you might need, and it was very clean. We had no problems with hot water or electricity like we have had in other apartments. The large courtyard was beautiful! You actually walk through two courtyards to get to the apartment; it's a nice quiet oasis in the busy Trastevere area. We never heard any noise from the piazza. Cecilia was very communicative and Elena, who met us at the property, was super friendly and helpful in explaining everything about the apartment. I recommend this apartment 100% and would definitely stay here again! Grazie!
We loved our stay at Chez Cecilia in Trastevere
We found the apartment to be very comfortable. The location is wonderful, within walking distance or a short tram ride of most points of interest in the city. Trastevere is a wonderful part of the city, sort of like the Left Bank of Paris; lots of restaurants, cafes, shops, etc. Cecilia was very cooperative and communicative when we were making our travel plans and Elana was prompt and helpful in getting us settled in. We were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary and this apartment made the celebration all the better. We recommend the apartment highly.
Spectacular Location, Excellent Value, and True Roman Charm
If you are a single traveler, couple, small group (up to 4) or family looking for great value and wanting to live like a Roman, look no further. This apartment is even better than its otherwise accurate description.
Location: it is in the heart of Trastevere, next door to a wonderful little store that make homemade pasta; 3 doors up from one of the best fish restaurants in which I have ever eaten (Bisque); near Pharmacies, a Tabachi (for your metro tickets), a supermarket, wine stores, one of the best cheese stores in the southern end of the city, and the 8 tram which takes you directly to Piazza Argentina (major bus hub). And it is quiet, because set in the back of the building.
The building. It is a secure building with a private courtyard shared by 4-5 apartments. Your door opens directly on to it and a small table that is always in the shade, and your view consists of a peaceful courtyard lin a17th-century or so insula adorned with geraniums and other flowers tended to by the building's fulltime residents (who were to a person friendly and smiling). A lovely place to relaz after a day of museums and walking (you can and should walk everywhere in Rome).
The unit: it is a snug loft tastefully decorated with an eye to efficiency and comfort. The AC works very well, as does the internet; the TV includes satellite channels. The kitchen is typically small (they all are in Europe), and well enough equipped to make all of your meals--even the icebox is cold enough to freeze water, which is no small feat for a town whose infrastructure is so chaotically jury-rigged that it's a small miracle every time the light turns on. The bed upstairs is comfortable and the bullouts are an IKEA model I actually own so can attest to its comfort as well.
The owner: was lovely. The old AC broke the first night I was there and the owner replaced it within 12 hours of my reporting it. One of the other reviews complains about non-responsiveness, which is completely inconsistent with my experience (and, I'll add, everyone else's).
So if you (like me) have a bit of a taste for adventure and independence, and want to experience Rome a bit more intimately than you ever can in a hotel, this is an unbeatable deal and experience.
