Great location in Trastavere, so easy to get to by tram, great spacious apartment & warm welcome. A perfect self-contained place to stay. Fun to stay in Trastavere with great bars & restaurants Internet works well so helped us get our bearings, as did the owner who gave us maps & restaurant recommendations. The train to Trastavere then tram is... More

Everything about our one bedroom second floor apartment was of high standard. The owner Luisa was very helpful and understanding when we arrived in Rome and our luggage did not arrive which caused us to be over an hour late for our check-in. The only minor complaint would be that the shower drained very slowly and water would splash out... More

We had a really lovely few days staying in this well appointed and comfortable apartment. Fantastic position to get everywhere! Great restaurants, I would advise using Trip Advisor to locate them, sadly Rome does have some AWFUL places to eat and we found three of them.. use Trip Advisor. Back to the apartment, everything was perfect and the lady who... More

We have just spent 4 nights in this lovely apartment so close to all the restaurants and narrow cobbled streets and Piazzas of Trastevere, and a fairly short walk across the river to the other spectacular sights of Rome. We had the upstairs loft apartment which comprises of a small but very well equipped lounge/kitchen. All spotlessly clean. Upstairs there... More

Our one bed studio apartment was everything we hoped for, and more. Close to the nightlife of Trastavere but not so close for it to intrude. Easy links to all other parts of the city. A comfy double bed. A shower to put all others to shame. And a range of restaurants and bars to satisfy all tastes and budgets.... More

Kitchen well equipped but seating area not bif enough for more than 2 people. Very clean throughout and can leave cases with very helpful lady cleaner. Good location and... More

We had a lovely 5 night sojourn with our daughter. The apartment was exceptionally clean, with a kitchenette and shower style bathroom. The master bed and pull out couch were very comfortable. It was clearly all recently renovated. Our hostess met us earlier than expected as our flight arrived ahead of schedule. She was friendly and efficient. We loved the... More

We returned for our two week holiday in Rome and once again were fortunate to stay at La Gensola. Luisa the owner and Maribel her assistant always make you feel welcomed and truly understand how to offer the best customer service. From all of the reviews this is such an unusually wonderful place.

This is a beautiful 2 bed apartment in a fabulous area. It was spotlessly clean, modern, underfloor heating, great showers, comfortable beds and with beautiful authentic beamed ceilings and terracotta floors and shuttered windows. Plenty of space for a family of four surrounded by wonderful restaurants , bars, patisserie and little shops. The only negative, and it's a small one... More

Staying in Trastevere

Neighborhood Profile
Trastevere
Trastevere ("beyond the Tiber") is like a faded postcard, a little worn around the edges but still charming. With its wide-open piazzas, meandering streets, weathered Renaissance buildings, and overgrown personality, it's become an irresistible mecca for visitors. Trastevere is an enclave of entertainment - a rotating set of street performers entertains almost every night, and unforgettable eateries and bars pepper its piazzas and side streets. For a trip to the past, visit the southern and western flanks of Trastevere for pockets of yesteryear, less traversed areas with a residual 1960s and 70s Roman vibe.
