We stayed in La Gensola for 5 nights and really enjoyed it, particularly for the location. Away from the hustle and bustle of the main tourist areas, it was great to retreat to this apartment. Arrival process was great and we were in a hurry to make a tour so didn't get the full run down on how to use... More

Great location. Walking distance to all major attractions. Upon arrival, which was confirmed fee days beforehand, we were greated by the cleaner and one very messy/unclean apartment. There is no reception area, so we were taken straight to the apartment. We were told that they were expecting us later that day, but in my email i clearly indicated our time... More

We recently spent five nights at La Gensola and loved it. The apartment was spacious and clean and was in a great area. It's great for people who want to feel like they (temporarily) live in Rome. I wouldn't recommend it if you need any concierge services during your trip since this isn't an actual hotel, but I personally like... More

An ideal apartment for our first time in Rome - We stayed for a long weekend and loved the location. Ideal for site seeing and for spending the evenings wondering through stunning cobbled streets finding places to eat. Could not recommend the apartment enough. We stayed in Apartment 3 which is at the top of some pretty steep stairs so... More

My brother and I stayed in the 2 apartments for only one night. They could be connected if you unlock a door but they are totally separate each with one bedroom, one bathroom and a kitchen and living room. The apartments are very, very modern. Everything looks like it was just remodeled. The location is great, depending on where you... 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

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.
