Enjoy the charm of an authentic Rome apartment!
Located right in the very center of Rome, in a tranquil cobblestone alley of the historic Trastevere area, this newly renovated and refurbished apartment combines the classic Roman charm of exposed original beams with the comfort and style of modern furnishings. This is an ideal typical holiday home to experience a great stay in the eternal city!
The area surrounding the apartment: The luxury suite apartment is situated in the heart of Trastevere, the picturesque medieval area located on the west bank of the Tiber. Part of the historical centre of Rome, Trastevere is the perfect place to glimpse a bit of the old world while still enjoying the lifestyle of today's Romans. From the cobblestone streets to the overhanging laundry lines, senses are pleasantly awakened with every step you take in this bohemian neighborhood.
Vicolo della Torre, where is located the apartment, represents everything mentioned above. It is the most photographed alley of Trastevere and you will feel very proud to have been chosen so popular and central location.
Equidistant from the Coliseum and the Vatican, Trastevere is an ideal place to discover the secrets of Rome on foot. Saint Peter and the Vatican city are about twenty minutes away and upon crossing the Tiber you get to Campo dei Fiori, Piazza Navona, the Spanish Steps, the Roman Forum, and many other sights, in no time at all (15 to 30 minutes walks). If you want to take public transportation, the area is extremely well served by the electric buses of Rome.
A few blocks from the apartment, you can find the outdoor market of Piazza San Cosimato, where tented booths display a bountiful array of tantalizing fruits and vegetables, or the Piazza Santa Maria in Trastevere, the most popular gathering place in the area. In this square you will find the church Santa Maria in Trastevere, one of the oldest and most beautiful churches in Rome and very much worth a visit.
The area becomes very lively at night as it is full of trendy bars and dozens of quality restaurants and pizzerias, where you can taste great Italian food at reasonable prices.
If you are looking for a very special accommodation, with all the charm and soul of old Rome yet with all the comfort and convenience of modern amenities, then the Trilussa apartment will surely delight you. Trilussa is the name of a famous Roman poet.
This charming apartment is located on the ground floor of a typical house of 1800 and enjoys a private entrance in additional to the secluded location that makes it not so noisy in a lively neighborhoods. This will allow you to sleep at night, advantage that few holiday rentals can offer in Trastevere.
The house is a confortable little suite, very modern and all renovated, pecfect for a couple or 3 persons of the same family. There is a bed room with a king size bed and a living room with a sofa bed, very well equiped with Tv with a satelite to enjoy your programs all over the world, and wireless internet free and a Nespresso coffee machine with complimentary Italian coffee.
The luxury suite has just come out of a full renovation ( December 2015 ) and represents a quintessential Trastevere apartment. The rustic tile floor and the original ceiling beams bring a delightful sense of Roman history, harmoniously matched by the contemporary colors and elegant furnishings. Guests will feel completely at ease from the moment they walk in, thanks to the captivating and warm atmosphere.

Romula Giannotti purchased this apartment in 2008
To deversify the tourism activity in a lovely city like Rome, I decided to invest in this tourism concept of vacation rental, trying to give the best of hospitality to our guests for a unforgetable holiday in the heart of the 'Eternel City' Trastevere !
We meet all our guests upon arrival to give them all the explications that they need to enjoy their stay, we offer them our avaibility for each kind of request as buy train tickets, leave their luggage in a little deposit to enjoy their last day in Rome, organize private cooking lessons, private day trips, wine tastings, transfers from and to the airport or the port of Civitavecchia where cruises depart for the Mediterranean, any service that can facilitate their stay in Rome.
The suite apartment is situated in the heart of Trastevere, very lively at night as it is full of trendy bars and quality restaurants frequented by tourists and Italians too. It is a typical house of the 1800, all renovated inside, located in the most beautifull alley of Trastevere, constantly photographed for its uniqueness. The bedroom is overlooking the courtyard of San Gallicano hospital, today is an historical monument, so my guests can sleep very well without being disturbed by noise that lasts all night in this very special neighbourhour of Rome, especially in summer.
An other benefit is that I have 2 houses in the same lane Vicolo della Torre (www.homeaway.com/228988 and www.homeaway.com/3571450) where 2 couples of friends travelling together can stay in their complete independence while being together.
Desetta family was wonderfull people and we were very happy to receive them in our little house of Trastevere hoping to see them again.
We have chosen this apartment because it was on ground floor as I had a knee problem. It was also very convenient for visiting the Vatican as it was close by . The taxi stand was very close . Plenty of restaurants and cafes(best to ask Romuna for recommendations) around the house gave us a big choice every evening.Famous Gelato shop just across the house was perfect. Due to location apartment was very quiet. It had every amenity needed chosen carefully.
Romula and Claudio have met us on arrival and provided us with very useful information and also a bottle of Prosecco!Very much appreciated.
We would certainly recommend this apartment to friends.
I booked this apartment as it looked to be a in a quiet location. Apart from Saturday night it was pretty quiet. You can hear the neighbours upstairs and the restaurant storeroom next door but only after about 8:30 am so it is not really a problem. Excellent location for visiting the main sites of Rome on foot. Although there are other pedestrian areas, it would probably be hard to find many other locations to offer both relative peace and convenient situation.
The apartment is adequately equipped and comfortable. The bed is firm and could be a challenge to share with someone heavy or restless as the springs and frame do creak a bit. But there is always the sofa bed. Shame there is no dining table. Maybe a fold up one would be a good idea although there are plenty of local restaurants (not all good so best to take recommendations).
Romula and Claudio meet guests on arrival and provide essential information and advice, which is commendable.
I would certainly recommend the apartment.
Having recently stayed in this apartment for one month...it was perfect in every way. From the moment Claudio and Romula greeted us we were welcomed not just as tourist but as guest in their home. They provided for our every need and were always available should we have any questions. With their knowledge of all things "Roman'" we were in good hands! The apartment is a cozy and comfortable oasis in the heart of very lively Trastevere. The bedroom, situated in the back provided many quiet and restful hours of sleep. Just steps away from the front door you can find food, drinks, and cappuccino.
Thank you, Romula and Claudio, your hospitality comes from the heart! We will be back .

My husband and I had a lovely 3 night stay in this apartment that was made memorable by the gracious hosts, Romula and Claudio. They met us upon arrival and spent over an hour with us to provide maps, dining recommendations, transportation insights, and even a bottle of wine! When I mentioned that the pillows were not as soft as we were used to and we had been a little cool while sleeping, Romula and Claudio showed up with a down comforter and showed us where to find softer pillows-hidden in the sofa bed storage! The apartment itself is well furnished and very comfortable for a couple. As other reviewers have mentioned, Trestavere is a great location, off the beaten path, but you have everything you need and you can walk to most places, or take a short taxi ride. The apartment is in the heart of the action, but located on a quiet side street and we did not have any problems with noise. I highly recommend this wonderful spot-you will not be disappointed!
This apartment (Trilussa) was spotlessly clean, cozy, comfortable and well decorated. It is on a very quiet street right in Trastevere but also very close to Campo Di Fiori and the Palatino area. The owner, Romula, was charming and very helpful, she provided us with good recommendations for restaurants and helped with taxis and directions. We will stay here again when we return to rome and we highly recommend it as a fine place to stay.
Loved the location. Perfect for the three days we were in Rome. The bed was uncomfortable, but other than that, it was nice.
Close by there is a brand new fitness center with a personal trainer & sauna. 10 euro per day !!!!
A very good supermarket on Viale Trastevere where you will find everything you need with very good prices and a local open market in Piazza San Cosimato, every morning.
The prices are FLEXIBLE and depends from the avaibility. Usually check out and check in is around 10 am.
I ask the balance at check in but in case of sudden cancellation I will be forced to ask for it anyway or to find a common agreement.
After check in no refund is due unless the problem cannot be solved.
