Lovely, chic and perfect location
Had a great stay/ lovely space with everything you need. I wish I could have thrown a dinner party, the apartment was so chic. We also loved the location. Will definitely stay again...
Outstanding place in the heart of Trastevere
This large, eclectically decorated apartment is in the heart of Trastavere within an easy walk to many restaurants, bars, shops, and other points of interest. The area is a center for nightlife but, with the windows closed, there is almost no street noise in the apartment. The property is well managed and everyone we came into contact with was very helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed relaxing with a bottle of wine on the large rooftop terrace with views of the Fontana dell'Acqua Paola each night.
If you want to live like a Roman
This is not an apartment bought to rent, but an actual home in the heart of one of the great Roman neighborhoods, trastevere. You will be living like a Roman. You can decide if that is the experience you want. For me, my wife and my three mid-teen/early twenty kids, we thought everything was perfect. The apartment building is on a very narrower street - even for trastevere - directly up the street from an interesection that does have a boisterous but very fun crowd with tourists and Roman's alike, particularly on the weekends. The apartment does receive a fair amount of that noise (although the back "main" bedroom faces the other way so it isn't as loud). It Is really crowd noise and not traffic. All very Roman-like. You can always sit on the large terrace that faces the other direction. And speaking of the terrace, it is very large and, well, Roman. It has a lemon tree, some small kind of orange tree, and an assortment of plants and flowers. It looks up to a bell tower hundreds of years old that still rings its bells every 15 minutes. Those bells and morning birds are what you wake to as the terrace is just up a few stairs from the main bedroom. The apartment is on the top floor of what I assume to be a 1400 year building replete with exposed painted white timber ceiling. You do have to walk up about 45 steps or take what is a very small, very Roman elevator that lifts in the center of the staircase. The apartment is lovely. Hard to get a sense of the lay out from the pictures but it essentially breaks into two halves. To the left is a narrow but very big and nice kitchen with a little terrace off of it. Extending from the kitchen is the dining room which really is as lovely as the pictures. From the kitchen is a spiral staircase which is narrower but leads to a nice bedroom with its own terrace. To the right is a very open room with big square windows. That room leads to the living room with big window/doors looking on the street and has a really nice sofa bed. There are stairs that lead to a loft space and the main bedroom. The stairs up would never "pass code" in the States with a completely open side to the floor below. The main bedroom is a decent size with the bigger bathroom off of it. The bathrooms themselves are nice and clean and functional. So, if you have small kids or can't handle stairs, don't come. If you want to live like a Roman, come.
David is a great guest. He left the house in perfect conditions! I would be happy to host him again! It is wonderful he enjoyed his stay!
Beautiful apartment, but very noisey street.
The apartment was beautiful, well designed, interesting furniture and an amazing terrace. The showers are bit small, as is the elevator and the winding stairs up to the second bedroom. I would recommend the apartment to younger couples or groups of friends who don't mind the noisey street below. The host was very accommodating and helpful. We enjoyed our stay overall but probably wouldn't stay here again.
Lovely guest! The communication has been smooth since the beginning, and my apartment has been found exactly as I left it. This flat has a great location, we are sorry you felt the street as noisy. You are welcome back anytime!
