Great apartment in a fun neighborhood
Metella is a great host. Stocks the apartment with essentials to make the stay as comfortable as possible. Wifi is strong throughout the property, which we found was not the case elsewhere in Italy. Highly recommended
I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay.
Thanks for taking so good care of the apartment. You are welcome anytime.
Absolutely brilliant location for all the main sights of Rome
We booked this apartment mainly for its location - right across the Tiber from Circus Maximus, the Coliseum, the Forum & Palatine Hill. And maybe 2 miles from the Vatican. As an indication of how well located it is, we had 3 day Roma Passes that included all local transport and we used the bus exactly 3 times. And one of those was getting from the station (that's maybe 4 - 5 miles).
Trastevere is somewhat "party central" with dozens of restaurants and bars (but only one gelateria that we found - Blue Ice, which had the best gelato of our trip. The apartment is comfortable , on the top floor of the building (no elevator) and, with the windows closed, it is quiet. It's not overly noisy with the windows open except when the restaurant up the road throws thir empty bottles out. The air conditioning is efficient and an absolute blessing in late June. The beds are comfortable and each bedroom has its own bathroom. There's plenty of room to move around in the bedrooms and lots of closet & drawer space. The kitchen is that double cupboard you see in the main photo - fine for putting toether breakfast and lunch but I wouldn't choose to cook a full meal there (nor did we want to with all those restaurants to choose from).
Metella, our host, was hugely helpful during the booking and check-in - she answered all my emails promptly, was there to meet us even though we were later than expected and gave us a good run down on what was around locally. She was also there to make sure everything was OK at check out and to given us directions to the taxi stand.
A couple of negatives - if you don't like stairs, there are 4 flights to contend with. There's nowhere to sit outside (that goes for a lot of apartments in Rome - doesn't seem a Roman thing to do) and the paintings on the wall may well scare kids. But all round I would definitely stay here again next time I am in Rome.
Thank you so much! I am so glad you enjoyed your stay.
Fantastic find in vibrant neighborhood
Metella's apartment is very thoughtfully laid out and accomodated two couples very graciously. With two ensuites, we had plenty of privacy and the common room was both comfortable and inviting. It is very well appointed making excellent use of all available space. The attention to detail was outstanding and we lacked for nothing. Metella greeted us upon our arrival and was able to provide us with all the information we needed to enjoy our stay. The bed was comfortable and the linens high quality. We would definitely seek this place out if we ever find ourselves in Rome again.
I'm very happy to read your wonderful review on my apartment in Trastevere!! I'm very glad that your stay in my beautiful apartment was fantastic and thank you for all the compliments on my house!! Finally I'm delighted that you have spent a wonderful days in my apartment and the guests satisfaction is the most important thing for me!! Thank you again!!
Great location, very clean and comfortable. Metella is a wonderful host and very helpful. Definitely recommend it and the Trastevere because it is not too touristy.
Comfy, clean, location perfect for Rome's must see attractions
Apartment was exactly as described no surprises. Great cafes for am coffee and lots of restaurants designed for tourists ( nothing too crazy if you travel with kids). Great location for Rome's highlights. Metella arranged a driver at the airport and to the car rental when we left ( great idea). I would recommend to others without hesitation.
Cozy in great location
The location was perfect - easy access to great restaurants and nightlife in Trastevere and across the river to the major sights in Rome - we walked everywhere. At the same time, the area around the apartment was quiet - it felt more like you were living among locals - yet there were little bar/coffee shops and some great restaurants within a block or less.
The pictures accurately represent the apartment. The place has a cozy feel - rooms aren't overly large, though these were probably the biggest bathrooms of our trip. Also the water pressure was great - best of 3 apartments on our visit to Italy. The wi-fi was also among the best we encountered. The kitchen is small/efficient - great for basics (breakfasts, snacks), but if you plan on cooking a gourmet meal, it may not be right for you. We appreciated having coffee/tea/sugar stocked for us, and everything else you need is just a few steps away from the front door. The A/C worked fine, though only used for sleeping and it wasn't that hot out. Only issue is that the beds are hard, although this seems to be true everywhere.
Metella was very easy to work with. We arrived into Rome fairly late and she arranged an airport transfer and met us at the apartment. She also processed the deposit refund immediately after we left Rome.
