Bedrooms 1
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

1 bedroom apartment with bathroom, kitchen, large lounge/dining room and terrace


Perfectly situated between the Trastevere and Testaccio areas of ancient Rome, this beautiful, clean, modern apartment is located on the 6th floor (with large lift) of a quiet, new (2011) building.

Trastevere is possibly the most beautiful and typically Roman area, famous for its narrow, cobbled streets, full of traditional restaurants, bars, pizzerias and small boutique shops open until late every night. From the apartment, you can take a leisurely stroll to this bustling and vibrant area or hop on and off the tram as you please, whilst still being just far enough away for a good night’s sleep!

Across the river, which can be seen from the apartment window, you will find Testaccio. Famous for its tasty trattorias and daily market. This area is popular with artists and writers and has become one of the most sought after areas to live in Rome.

If you love wandering around markets and want to experience ‘real’ Roman life and pick up a bargain at the same time, make sure you’re here on a Sunday morning, when you will find the famous Porta Portese market literally on your doorstep!

If you are looking for a park, you are not far from the amazing Villa Doria Pamphili – a seventeenth-century villa with what is today the largest landscaped public park in Rome. It is located in the Monteverde area and can easily be reached from the apartment. This park really comes alive at the weekend and, if you have a little extra time to spare, it is not to be missed. There is even a cute bistro where you can get an English breakfast!


The apartment is 250 metres from the No.8 tram stop which connects Piazza Venezia, in the historic centre, with the popular district of Trastevere. The tram also stops at Trastevere's railroad station, where commuter trains run to Fiumicino Airport and the cruise port of Civitavecchia. In addition, there is a bus stop in front of the main building. Using either of these methods, you will have easy access to all the major historical sites: Piazza Venezia, the Bocca della Verità, the Pantheon, Campo dei Fiori, and across the river to the Castel Sant’Angelo and the Vatican Museums.

Taking the tram, you will arrive in Trastevere in 4 stops (approximately 10 minutes) and the centre in 7 stops (approximately 15 minutes). The tram runs every 6 minutes.

From the end of the tram line, you can easily walk to the Trevi Fountain, the beautiful Spanish Steps and the shopping area of Via del Corso or for the big spender, the splendid Via dei Condotti, where you will find Gucci, Prada, Chanel, Louis Vuitton and other top designers.


If you’re tired after a day of sightseeing, there are lots of trattorias, pizzerias, and small restaurants in the immediate vicinity of the apartment, where you can taste typical Roman cuisine. In fact there is even a restaurant, pizzeria, ice cream shop and cafe (serving excellent pastries and coffee for breakfast) on the ground floor of the building itself! For all essentials, or just to have a browse around, there is a well stocked supermarket literally next door.

Within walking distance you can find banks, local bakeries, clothes shops, tabacconists (where you can purchase travel tickets), doctors and dentists.


The apartment consists of a large, spacious lounge with a fully equipped kitchen, a double bedroom and bathroom, and has all the amenities necessary to ensure you have a comfortable and hassle free stay.

The spacious bedroom has a large double/kingsize bed (154cm x 211cm) with a brand new, comfortable mattress. There is a wardrobe to hang your clothes, a table for your luggage, two bedside tables, each with reading light and ample storage space. The large french window opens out onto the terrace, so you can lie in bed and let the Rome sunshine in!

The brightly-lit living room has a large, comfortable, properly structured double sofa bed and a 32-inch high-resolution LCD TV. There is a DVD/Blu-ray player if you fancy a night in or have kids to entertain. A selection of DVD’s/books can be provided upon request (a list of available titles can be found in the welcome pack upon arrival). There is an extendable table and four chairs in the dining area of the lounge.

The kitchen, which forms an L-shape in the corner of the lounge, has everything you need including crockery, cutlery, pots, pans, a dishwasher, fridge-freezer, microwave and kettle.

High quality bed linen and towels are provided during your stay.

The bathroom has a toilet, bidet, large sink and shower. There is a hairdryer and a cabinet below the sink for storage.

The large terrace (25 square metres) looks over the open courtyard within the building, so you can relax peacefully during the day and night. With comfortable terrace furniture, you are able to while away the hours reading, drinking a glass of prosecco or even sunbathing during the warmer months.

All furnishings and fittings are new and of high quality. A washing machine, clothes stand, pegs and washing machine detergent are all provided for your use.

WiFi access, air conditioning in every room and independent central heating complete the features of the property.

CHILDREN: As a family, we understand the difficulties of travelling with children and we aim to help by providing, upon request, a cot bed and linen, toys, books, DVD’s, a steriliser, car seats and high chair. If you need anything else, please feel free to ask – we may be able to provide it!

About Adeline

I moved from the UK to Rome ten years ago and now live here with my husband and children. My husband was born and raised in Rome and indeed we live near to the apartment because we believe it to be the best area of the city!

Adeline purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Adeline chose Rome

This property is in a fantastic location for travellers. It's very close to a tram that takes you into the heart of the city and yet just far enough away from bars/pubs/restaurants to ensure you can sleep/relax when you want. It was built recently and therefore is clean and modern - we believe it's beautiful to visit ancient Rome during the day but when it comes to somewhere to stay, the priorities are that it's fully functioning, well maintained and clean. The apartment is big enough to allow you to set up a little home from home while you're here but not so big that you have to spend a fortune. Being between Trastevere and Testaccio allows you very easy access to great restaurants and cafes and ensures you live the 'real' Rome while you're here.

We have also realised over the years that travelling with children, whilst fun and great for the family, can be more of a chore than a holiday, so we started using holiday homes rather than hotels and b&b's. We found that way we could come and go as we pleased and be completely independent. We really hope that we can make your holiday as pleasant as possible in the beautiful eternal city by providing a clean, modern apartment with all the amenities you need (plus others - just ask, we might have them) and share our love for the city by offering advice/suggestions of where to go and what to see and most importantly where to eat and drink!

A very well maintained,modern comfortable problems and enjoyable to come back to after a day of sigh

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is at the edge of Trastavere and Testaccio the former reached by a very handy tram #8 which will also get you into the central part of Rome.

The apartment has everything you could need, a very well equipped kitchen, a great shower and a very comfortable bed. We used the large balcony to sit out in the morning to enjoy the sun and in the evening to read.

Perfect. Exactly as advertised!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was exactly what we had hoped for. The location, off the beaten path, but accessible to everywhere made our daily adventures easy and provided us with a more "local" experience. It was clean, bed was comfortable (firm), bath and kitchen lovely. (One quibble, the shower is very tiny, but I'm on the bigger side.) Very dependable wifi. Adeline is a delight to deal with. Overall would definitely recommend!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review, we always really appreciate it! I'm sorry you found the shower a little on the small side, however, it is a standard European shower box size and we really hope it didn't detract from your time here in any way. It was a pleasure to meet you both and I hope you enjoyed the rest of your time here in Italy. All the best!

Great little flat in a laid back part of Rome

  • 5 of 5

Adeline and PIere-Luigi's apartment was a very comfortable place to call home for our time in Rome. They were very accommodating with any of our requests, even lending us toys and DVDs for our twin 4-year old daughters. There was more than enough space or the four of us, and the terrace is enormous. The neighborhood was very cute and convenient to central Rome via the tram, and a short walk to many local restaurants, gelaterias, and nearby Testaccio. The supermarket on the same block as the building was super convenient, and the pizzeria and restaurant in the building on the street level couldn't have been closer. It's a great choice for families looking to get out of the intensity of central Rome, but still be in a vibrant neighborhood close by.

Absolutely lovely apartment and a very accomodating host

  • 5 of 5

Apartment was well-appointed and very clean. The terrace was our favorite hangout after a long day of sightseeing. We found the nearby grocery store very handy for picking up wine, snacks or light meal. the area has a few nice restaurants within walking distance. The nearby tram and buses can get you anywhere you want quickly and easily.

Adeline was a pleasure to work with. Very responsive to inquiries before and during our stay. We found the guidebook that she keeps in the apartment very useful in planning our sightseeing trips.

Would highly recommend this apartment to anyone visiting Rome.

Excellent base for visiting Rome

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this lovely apartment during our trip to Rome in April. Adeline was a pleasure to communicate with, making booking the apartment and securing details for our arrival and departure very easy. We found the apartment to be much larger than we had anticipated, very well equipped and clearly well cared for. The nearby tram provided easy access in to the centre of Rome. We would highly recommend this apartment to our friends and family looking to stay in a quieter section of Rome!
