Casa in Trastevere
Ranked #2,990 of 3,711 Rome B&B and Inns
Reviewed 21 February 2008

We stayed in Casa Trastevere because of the wonderful things we had heard about the owner, Marta, the unique Trastevere location and size and comfort of the apartment.
Rome is one of the greatest cities in the world, but its main drawback is that it is almost always full of tourists. Trastevere is a lovely part of Rome full of great restaurants and picturesque scenery where Italian families and young people live and work. It's authentic Rome without the tourists and all of the unpleasantness that comes with that.
When we arrived (family with 2 children ages 12 & 14) Marta met us at the apartment which is nicely located on a quiet street. She is warm and sweet and was eager to help us find a good restaurants. She also gave us a nice itinerary and oriented us with the public transportation system. She gave us her cell phone number in case we needed anything.
The apartment is large, comfortable and clean. The bathrooms are modern and very nice with plenty of hot water and pressure. The beds were comfortable and everything was fresh and clean.
The area is fabulous for excellent dining without the tourist glitz and prices. The streets are narrow and winding and filled with interesting shops and scenery.
The apartment is located near the Vatican and one can easily walk across one of the many bridges to the center of Rome. We are active and used to walking, so it was not a problem for us to walk any where in Rome although public transportation is convienent as well.
I would stay at Casa Trastevere again and recommend it to my friends looking for a nice, quiet, spacious apartment in an authentic Italian neighborhood.

Reviewed 17 October 2006

The hotel website claims to be in the picturesque area of Trastevere, going so far as to call itself the "In Trastevere B&B" and posting a vague map featuring three Roman sites and positioning itself in the centre of Trastevere. This is a blatant attempt to mislead honest tourists looking for accommodation in this lovely area.
The taxi driver from the airport had never heard of the address and spent most of the journey from the airport veering around the motorway with his head in his A-Z of Rome and denouncing that this street was definitely not in Trastevere. Once we arrived, we knew he was right. We drove through streets of high rise council buildings with graffiti daubed all over the walls and threatening iron gates leading into dark courtyards.
Once we managed to locate the front door of the B&B with no help from the hotel staff, we were greeted by a sour faced, exhausted Russian girl who was clearly the sole representative of the alleged 24 hour reception service. The room itself was clean and modern, an unexpected surprise given the location and exterior appearance of the building. However it turned out to be a good 20 minute walk and tram ride from Trastevere itself and 30 mins from the town centre.
We also had to put down a deposit for front door keys to let us into the building if we wanted to come back after 11pm so that the receptionist could go out partying on the Friday night
Rome was beautiful as always but you don't want your memories of the timeless buildings spoilt by the sight of run down tower blocks after a day sightseeing.
The fact that the website only shows pictures of the bedrooms and bathrooms is for a very good reason. Don't stay here - keep trying those hotels in the centre of town!
