About Giovanni Ramazzotti

I am a kind and friendly person ready to contribute to make your stay in Rome a perfect holiday.

Giovanni Ramazzotti purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Giovanni Ramazzotti chose Rome

The Trastevere district easily captures the traveler's heart and is one of the best area of the city where to stay. You will be accommodated in a very quiet and comfortable apartment and yet be able to enjoy the Trastevere nightlife with the many local bars and restaurants available nearby.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment is very comfortable and in a very good location. I have traveled myself and I know what are guest expectations for a perfect holiday.

Magical week in Rome

  • 4 of 5

My son and I were in Rome for a week's worth of sketching all that Rome has to offer. The location, though across the river from Rome, is a reasonable walking distance to all of our sketching sights. Despite our delayed flight, Giovanni still met us to review the apartment layout and conveniences. He also arranged the taxi to take us to the airport....very important as the taxi drivers in Rome seem to speak very little English.

One comment important point is that the apartment is quiet. No street noise nor noise from other building residents was heard. A good night's sleep always!!

I particularly love the Trastevere location....minutes away from Piazza San Cosimato and so many restaurants and cafes and the lively Trastevere ambiance. Would stay there again.

Clean, Comfortable, Convenient & Full of Character - Our Favorite Stay in Italy!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of three adults just returned from 10 days in Italy, staying in two different apartments - 4 days in Rome and 4 in Florence. I can honestly say Giovannis's La Scalea Di Trastevere was the best, hands down (even staying at a balcony apt overlooking the Arno in Florence!).

Giovanni met us at arrival to his apt, had the air conditioners on and cold water in the fridge. He walked us through the operations of the apt, gave directions to taxi/bus/tram transport + local grocery/market shopping and made us feel welcomed.

Although the kitchen is compact, it has everything needed for simple meals: stovetop, microwave, dishwasher, electric water kettle, and all utensils. We didn't cook since we ate lunches and dinners while out but we did have a lite breakfast of coffee, fruit and pastries each morning. Oh yeah, the washing machine is in the kitchen. We used twice, drying our clothes on the drying rack - a little different than we're used to, but it's part of the Italy experience and actually worked great.

The master bedroom with comfy queen bed has plenty of hang up space and storage with bedside lighting for reading + a full length mirror. The second bedroom has two twin beds, bedside table with lamp and shelves along one wall. Both bedrooms have wonderful large windows which we partially opened in the early morning hours to sleep with the cool Italian breeze.

The living room/dining area with large windows that open to the outside giving you an authentic "Italian view" has plenty of lighting, a table and chairs to eat and even a television. The Internet/wifi was strong which was important since I had to work remotely several times during our trip.

The bathroom, although small, was very clean with a great shower, plenty of hot water and a hair dryer.

We found several restaurants close by with great food and prices and especially liked the Bar Glorioso on the sidewalk down from the apartment for cappuccinos and a delicious bruschetta (open early). We really liked that we could walk to the Trastevere Squares easily in about 10-15 minutes.

If you want the authentic Roman neighborhood experience without the noise/hustle bustle of all things touristy or just calm at the end of a LONG day of walking and seeing the sites, then Giovannis's Scalea Di Trastevere might just be the place for you. For us it was the perfect place in Rome ... thank you Giovanni, we hope to return again!

Comfort. Convenience. Amenities. This Apartment Has It ALL !!! Book it now.

  • 5 of 5

This roomy two-bedroom apartment is steps away from the the center of Rome's liveliest neighborhoods.

The great news here is that it has SO much more than convenience going for it.

I just finished a one-month stay here and HIGHLY recommend it.

I've stayed in other apartments in Rome.

This one outdoes them all, really. I have no stake in this. I just know how hard it can be to find a nice place to rest at the end of a long day

Air conditioning...a summer essential in Rome.

WIFI...not as easy to find in Rome as you might expect.

Kitchen....there's a stovetop, fridge, dishwasher, kettle, coffeemaker, basics +++

Washer/dryer....even a rack for drying so you can pack light.

After a day of walking around the eternal city really all you want to do is fall into a comfortable bed and,

here, you will. A lot of hotels and apartments scrimp on mattresses and linens. The beds here are great for a good

Night's sleep. The bedding is changed weekly and the place is PRISTINE.

The apartment also comes with a vacuum and varied cleaning supplies.

Also worth mentioning, there are lots of outlets in every room. If you're working, like I was, bring converters.

A small family could stay here. The one challenge, a modern but small bathroom.

It worked really well for me and my guest but you might have to schedule shifts if the crowd grows

Trastevere is busy with restaurants, shops, street vendors and night life and having stayed in the middle of that

I prefer this apartment, which is about a block off the beaten path, very close but just quiet enough.

The taxi stand is nearby as are groceries, an open market for fresh produce, pharmacies and even a department store.

This apartment is in a building with permanent residents who are good neighbors and expect the same.

The landlord is caring, responsible and responsive. He addressed ALL my questions and concerns and, on top of

Everything else, he is very nice and speaks English.

I could rave on but I think I've covered the basics.

Yes, I would stay here again !

Enjoy Rome and your stay at La Scalea de Trastevere. Ciao.

Helpful Host, Delightful Apartment; best neighborhood in Rome

  • 5 of 5

We arrived as a family of four in Trastevere, after a week of traveling in Venice and Florence. Giovanni met us after we arrived by Train to Termini Station and took a cab to his front door. He spent time going over the entire workings of the flat, including how to work the washer/dryer, how to properly recycle materials, and where to find any and all necessities. He left us with good maps, a cold bottle of water and some wine. He told us where the nearest public transportation lines were, how to find a good grocery store, and where to get an inexpensive dinner in the neighborhood. He was laid back but thorough, and reminded us that whatever we needed, he'd be responsive to a text or phone call. He proved good on his word. We texted him twice: once to ask for his help in booking two taxis, and once when the air conditioning unit in the children's room failed. He was responsive within moments both times. I cannot say enough about what a wonderful host he was. He didn't present himself as a salesman. He seemed to love Rome and to be excited for us to have an opportunity to "live" there, as he gave over the apartment. The apartment itself is located on a quiet side street in Rome, just down the steps from the American University. It is in a perfect location, convenient to all the goings on in the hip and happening Trastevere neighborhood, and steps away from excellent bus and trolley public transportation (subway, too, though we didn't use it). The apartment was modern and spacious and had everything we needed. The Master bedroom had plenty of drawers and hangers for our clothing, and places set our reading materials and the like. The kids' room was similarly well appointed. There was a generous living space with a table and four chairs and a big nice couch. The kitchen was easy to navigate and alllowed us to always have small meals or snacks ready for the kids or for us, and to always take our breakfast indoors before starting our day. This was very helpful. I highly recommend this apartment, Giovanni, and Rome! We hope our family will be back, and that all three will be eager to receive us once again.

Cool Apartment in Trastevere

  • 5 of 5

Giovani was very attentive to our emails and questions. He was very accomodating in meeting with us and telling us all about the apartment and planning our travels around Rome. His English was very good. The apartment was big and quaint at the same time. The apartment and the surroundings really gave you the neighborhood feel. Trastevere is the perfect place to stay. You are just a short distance from everything. We were walkers (20 minutes to the Vatican, 10 to central Rome, 15 minutes to the Colloseum). We were also close to the Tram and numerous busses (also close to Trastevere train Station). We would stay there again. My family of four was very comfortable in the two bedroom apartment. The huge windows really open the apartmant up and enhance the entire experience.

comfortable and had everything we needed impeccably clean!

  • 5 of 5

My colleague and I stayed at La Scalea di Trastevere during our 3 days in Rome recently. If you want to explore Trastevere, a great neighborhood with wonderful alley streets, great restaurants and lively roman life, this is the place. You can get to all the sites by tram and bus from there as well. Giovanni was so gracious and flexible about arrival and departure times. He sat with us and gave us directions on a map and was kind and honest with the best Italian hospitality! The beds were just great and the little kitchen had everything you need in a compact organized way. I'd go there again for sure. You can walk across the river : a long walk but with great sites of Rome!

The apartment is located in the Trastevere district at the base of the Gianicolo hill in a quiet and calm area next to the Scalea del Tamburino. The apartment is a few meters away from Piazza San Cosimato and Piazza Santa Maria in Trastevere. From here, you can enjoy a short walk trough the nice cobblestone streets of the Medieval Trastevere district and reach in 15-20 minutes some of the most famous city spots such as Campo Dei Fiori, the Pantheon, Piazza Navona, the Colosseum and Piazza Venezia. If you want to reach the heart of Rome by tram, there is a tram stop at a short walking distance from the apartment. From here, the high frequency line 8 will get you until Largo di Torre Argentina and Piazza Venezia in 5 to 10 minutes.
