Overview

About the property

1 Living, 1 Terrace, entrance area, 1 kitchen, 1 bathroom, sleeps 2.

Only for lovers!

Artistic Loft with terrace over the ancient roman roofs! This spectacular genuine artist studio apartment has one of the best views of Trastevere. This apartment is ideal for couples who really want to spend the most romantic nights over the roofs of the old Trastevere.

The penthouse is very bright and cosy.

It's located on the fourth floor of an old building (no elevator) in a very nice part of Trastevere.

Comprised of one large living room with a double size bed, a spacious terrace with a dining table and a comfortable outdoor sofa, a fully equipped kitchen corner, a nice entrance area, dining table, and a complete bathroom with WC, basin, bidet and shower.

Complete with linens, towels, pans, dishes, kettle, toaster, hairdryer, Satellite TV, internet WiFi, heating and air conditioning.

Located in a very nice area of Trastevere, next to Piazza Santa Cecilia.

The apartment is steps away from all the major attractions.

It's only 3 to 20 minutes walking distance to all the famous Piazzas and monuments: 10 minutes to the Roman Forum and Campo de Fiori (only 600 meters away), less than 15 minutes to Piazza Navona, Pantheon, the Colosseum, Fontana di Trevi and S. Peters Basilica.

It's steps away from all the buses and trams (200 meters) and not very far from the metro (1200 meters) (which there is no need to use as you can walk or take a short trip on a bus to reach most of the tourist locations).

There are, bars, a grocery store, a bakery and restaurants right outside the building.

The location is the best you could wish for!

Just wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Incredible apartment with beautiful views and a lovely sun trap balcony. Everything you need on your doorstep, including a bakery and coffee shop, with all tourist sights easily walkable within 20mins. Luca and Roberta were easily contactable and more than happy to help if needed. Highly recommended, can't wait to come back!

Amazing nest in the Trastevere overlooking Rome.

  • 5 of 5

The view is just what it promises. The aptly named artist loft is both those, decorated with very unique, provocative pieces. Luca and Roberta were very helpful and responsive. The apartment is right in the center of 7 little restaurants and a little store/deli across the street. After the heat of the day subsides the terrace is a beautiful place to lounge, dine, take in the vista and listen to the sound of the birds and the restaurants below(and the bells). (PS the a/c worked well to provide an afternoon respite). First off there is the stairs, so we did feel after a day of walking and taking groceries(use Maps to locate the stores) up, that the apartment and terrace afforded more than most restaurants could, so that is where we stayed and loved our evenings. The location was perfect, coupling the residential Trastavere with the proximity of the city across the Tiber. We were able to walk everywhere, taking advantage of the suprisingly (at least in June) under-used water bus which left from the Trastevere side of the Isola Tiberina to meander along the river to St Peters. A one-day, hop-on-off bought the first afternoon actually allowed us a full day the next. Able to reach the Pantheon, Colliseum (buy ticket at Pantheon first) and St Peters first. Then Parthenon, Trevi fountains and Spanish steps the second. Hectic, but we only had three days and the apartment was the perfect base for our visit. We were never able to complete a purchase for museums via the Italian website and could not face another line(queue). Perhaps we could have with better planning, bought tickets at offices elsewhere. Definitely recommended.

Great Location & Value

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I stayed in Luca's apartment for 5 nights in June 2014. (Apologies for the late review Luca). The apartment is small, but very comfortable and well appointed. Remember when in Rome...

The terrace is amazing - the ideal spot for aperitivos and late night drinks.

The area is fantastic. A great location from which to explore Rome - especially the Trastevere and Testaccio areas.

Perfect ..

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing find this little apartment was .. My wife and I (both 36)had been to Rome before and loved the trastevere area most. We decided to return and try renting instead of hotels. This flat is perfect, it's situated in a gorgeous street with superb breakfast bar just below the property along with two other bars and shops close by. Very clean with everything you need for your city break. The outside space is bliss to relax after a day of walking and eating with the friendly locals. My wife is 7 months pregnant so the stairs were a little tough but nothing she couldn't handle . We were both looked after superbly by Luca and Rosie and we would highly recommend them for your authentic Roman break... Can't wait to return. Thanks Luca & Rosie

The perfect place to make Rome your home!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was accurate, clean and as we expected it. We enjoyed every minute and feel like we should come back soon. There are still a lot of small restaurants and bars to discover and a lot of sunsets over Trastevere to welcome with a glass of prosecco on the little terrace.

Very Positive Experience - Highly Recommended

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I chose to rent an apartment in Rome for two reasons; 1) the value 2) to immerse ourselves in the city. Hotels are often in areas that cater to tourists (such as the Via Veneto area) whereas this apartment is located in the heart of vibrant active community. Though that doesn't mean it's missing any amenities.

We stayed at Luca's apartment on a first hand recommendation from friends. Unlike Air BnB, Luca's place is rented full time so you don't feel like you're intruding in someone else's place. We did not have the pleasure of meeting Luca in person, but did not need to. His assistant met us at the apartment (a little late which was awkward because the street is tiny and we had to stand there with our large bags dodging traffic) and got us checked in a oriented to the apartment. The apartment itself has everything a good home base needs; the tap water is delicious, nice assortment of plates and silverware, fridge was cold, air conditioning works, and most importantly it was clean.

General Notes/Tips

- It's at the top of 5 flights of tight stairs, if you're not in good shape it may be tough

- Yes the bathroom is small, but you're in Europe that just how it is

- The deck is amazing

- The two cafes downstairs are excellent

- Plenty of great restaurants in the immediate vicinity

- Convenient cab stand not too far away

- You need to pay in cash, for those needing to procure Euro's I found the most cost effective way to be the ATM at the airport. Bank's differ on fees but mine merely charged a $5 foreign ATM fee, which was much much cheaper than trying to exchange money at a kiosk

- Set up transportation to and from the airport through Luca, the 50 euro charge is comparable to a cab. (note - the driver may be different on the return trip)

- Bed is firm (two twins put together) which I found comfortable

- Street noise can be loud at night but it's a testament to the lively neighborhood

- Being in a foreign place can be intimidating at first, but I quickly became very comfortable navigating the neighborhood and found it safe

- The location itself is south of the main touristy attractions but we walked everywhere. It's about a 20-25 minute walk from the Colosseum, Pantheon, Piazza Novona, etc.

Overall: Highly recommended, would stay their again
