Area: Trastevere/Santa Maria
Located in Trastevere, one of the most historic districts in Rome dating back many centuries, this 60 sq mt (650 sq ft) apartment in a non-elevator building is near the Isola Tiberina which sits in the middle of the Tiber River and has been home to a major hospital for many years. The accommodation is quiet and comfortable and within walking distance to the Garibaldi Bridge which connects directly to the historic center of Ancient Rome. It has been remodeled and refurnished (in 2010) in a mixture of design elements combining ethnic furniture and colorful pictures including a work by the Kenyan painter, Richard Onyango Odongo.
The apartment can accommodate a total of 4 persons in its 2 bedrooms. All the rooms are accessed from a central corridor which has, at one end, a mini, built-in wall kitchen equipped with 2 stove top units, a refrigerator, a microwave oven and a toaster oven.
- Bedroom number 1 (the rose room) has a French bed (55 inch) and an ensuite bathroom with a shower and hair dryer;
- Bedroom number 2 (the gray room) has a double bed which can be separated into twin beds, an ensuite bathroom with a shower and a hair dryer.
The living room has a sofa, a table that seats 4 and a TV. The apartment also offers Internet Wi-Fi (if you are traveling with your own computer); adjustable heating; an electric hot water tank which provides hot water; a washing machine and an iron and ironing board. Air conditioning is available for an additional charge of 5 euro per day. The hostess speaks English and will happily provide information on transportation and tourist attractions.
The Trastevere section with all its various restaurants, pubs and shops is a center of active Roman life - day & night - and is less than 400 mt (1/4 mile) from the apartment. The local train from the airport stops at the Trastevere Train Station which is just a 15 minute ride on Tram number 8 also near the apartment. The ancient Roman Basilica of Santa Cecilia with its famous statue of the Saint by Stefano Maderno and a 12th century fresco by Pietro Cavallini is an easy walk. The centrally located piazza of the Church of Santa Maria in Trastevere is a favorite meeting place for young Romans. Across the Garibaldi Bridge are many of the main historical attractions of Rome such as Piazza Navona, Campo de’ Fiori, the Spanish Steps, the Trevi Fountain and the Vatican all within an easy walk. Public transportation provides connection to all other sections of Rome.
