Review 3869: Italy-Accom, Apartment Trastevere


Review by Margaret from Australia

1bed/1bath apartment in Trastevere, Rome


Oct 2008, 5 nights


We stayed in this apartment from the 10/9 - 10/14 with our two children. A few weeks previously we had stayed in an apartment in Paris on the Ile De St Louis, an "exclusive" neighbourhood, but pokey on the inside.

Our initial impressions of the building from the outside, the street and courtyard were that, the neighbourhood was slightly unkempt/avant garde/ "grungey". However, once we were in the apartment and familar with the local environment, the street appearance was of no concern.

The interior furnishings, cleanliness and quality of the amenities was of very high standard. There was an ample supply of towels, cooking equipment, crockery and utensils - often these items are limited in number in apartments so this was great. The equipment was easy to use and everything was spotless. Nothing had been forgotten. We especially enjoyed the welcoming touch of the fruit and cake.

We walked everywhere from the apartment, except to the station and we enjoyed the nightlife and quirky shops in the local neighbourhood. From walking around over a few days we soon realised that the grafitti we noticed on our arrival was all over Rome and not particular to the area.

You can view the property directly: Apartment Trastevere.
