- Air conditioning
|Address||Vicolo Scavolino, 00187 ROMA, Italy|
|Response time||A few hours|
|Calendar updated||A month ago|
We offer a lovely and totally independent apartment located in Vicolo Scavolino, at 150 mt. walk from the famous Fountain, one of the most spectacular monuments of ancient Rome, meeting point for all those who decide to spend their Roman vacation, monument admired throughout the world and a source of inspiration for many of the most famous Italian vintage movies. Symbol, for all, of the city, not surprisingly are attributed to the fountain legends and anecdotes that have become part of popular culture in Rome, for example, the best-known tradition says that throwing a coin into the fountain, his back to her, there is a propitious future return to the city as well as luck and the possibility that all of our dreams become reality.
At the entrance there is a comfortable sofa bed for two people, a table with chairs, a TV on the wall, a sideboard with wall to store everything you need. Immediately after, there is a small kitchenette with electric hob and oven, a colored bathroom with shower and, finally, to access to the sleeping area you climb through the living room, by a small ramp of 10 steps coming in the loft (the sleeping area is on a mezzanine floor which is accessed from the living room), that makes this part really characteristic and pleasant, equipped with a double bed. The apartment offers a free unlimited Wi-Fi, clean linen, hairdryer, iron and ironing board, air conditioning hot/cold completely independent.
I think it's needless to say that it’s at the center of the nightlife of ancient Rome, where you can find the most famous and beautiful restaurants, pizzerias, wine bar and shops of the city. It's just a few steps from the famous Spagna square with its characteristic staircase that links the panoramic gardens of the Pincio, near those who are among the most famous and elegant shopping streets, such as Via Sistina, Via Veneto, Piazza Barberini, or even, Via della Vite, Via Borgognona, Via Frattina, Via Condotti, Via del Babuino until the famous Popolo square, passing through the most luxurious shops of the Italian and international fashion.
Always near the apartment, you can admire the famous palace of the Italian Parliament, through the long Via del Corso, if it’s all covered up in the end, leads to the wonderful Altar of the Nation of Venezia square and, walking through the ruins of the ancient Romans, along the immense Via dei Fori Imperiali, finally you can reach the impressive Colosseum.
The apartment is then connected to all the lines of public transports in Rome and it’s just 15 minutes from the central railway station of the city, Termini Station.
The flat has one comfortable double sofa bed futon also where could sleep another person, so on the top level of the flat there is the double bed and on the ground level where there is the living room there is the sofa bed, but I think you have seen these details by the photos of the advert and the description which are very clear.
There's not a separated bedroom, it has a loft with a double bed.

Very nice apartment on 3 floors. The welcome was pleasant and carefree. The apartment is situated in a neighborhood with lots of good restaurants nearby. By cons, it is 30 minutes collisé's approach and 1 hour walk from the station. The Wi-Fi did not always work but was a pleasant stay in this apartment.
Très bel appartement sur 3 étages. L'accueil était agréable et sans soucis. L'appartement se situ dans un quartier bien avec beaucoup de restaurants à proximité. Par contre, il est à 30 min démarche du collisé et à 1h de marche de la gare. Le Wi-Fi ne fonctionnait pas toujours mais se fut un agréable séjour dans cet appartement.
The apartment, which is really just a room with en-suite bathroom, located in the heart of Trastevere in a typical Italian courtyard. The advantage of the apartment is the mainly nocturnal tranquility and peace of mind. It's all there, what you need, where we used anything from the kitchen utensils as we eat are always gone. The apartment is at ground level and is very dark. Even during the day you can not do without all the lights that are present. At furniture we found a mix of tasty items and "well" before. Everything seemed a bit improvised, but since we were only 5 days there, did not bother. For a short break we would take the apartment again.
Die Wohnung, die eigentlich nur ein Zimmer mit integriertem Bad ist, liegt im Herzen von Trastevere in einem typischen italienischen Innenhof. Der Vorteil der Wohnung ist die vor allem nächtliche Ruhe und ein sicheres Gefühl. Es ist alles da, was man benötigt, wobei wir nichts von den Küchenuntensilien genutzt haben, da wir immer Essen gegangen sind. Die Wohnung liegt ebenerdig und ist sehr dunkel. Selbst am Tage kommt man ohne alle Lampen, die vorhanden sind nicht aus. An Mobiliar fanden wir eine Mischung aus geschmackvollen Gegenständen und "na ja" vor. Alles wirkte etwas improvisiert, was uns aber, da wir nur 5 Tage da waren, nicht gestört hat. Für einen Kurzurlaub würden wir die Wohnung wieder nehmen.
This is one of the WIMDU places where one is sorely tempted not to write too enthusiastically about, lest it is booked solid when you ever want to come back. The apartment is located in a very posh neighborhood of Northern Rome named Parioli (lots of embassies etc). No surprise that the quarter is packed with nice restaurants, shops and up market food stores etc.. Right across the street is an excellent pizza place called “La Parioli” that became our favorite. It is usually packed with Romans which is always a good sign (--> make a reservation, especially on weekends or eat well before 8 pm when the place starts to fill up). The many embassies also have the nice side effect that police is never far and I would rate Parioli one of the safest if not the safest and quietest neighborhood in central Rome. The great thing is that despite these obvious advantages, all the major sights of Rome are just a 30 minute walk away. A reasonably fit person can cross the Villa Borghese park (also great for running) and be on the Spanish steps in 25 minutes. If you don’t like walking, there is a direct bus to Termini station (Number 223) or trams number 3 and 19 within reasonable walking distance (600 m/yards).
The place itself is something very special and unique. It looks as if it was originally a janitor’s/caretaker’s/chauffeur’s apartment and is located in the inner courtyard of a classic Rome apartment block from the late 19th century. The best way to describe it is a free standing bungalow in the inner courtyard. It is only accessible by descending a stair, so it is decidedly not suitable for handicapped persons (but the owner points this out). If one opens all the shutters, the place is very light but the downside is that people have a clear view at you from the surrounding apartments. We were there in March but I would imagine that the place is also very cool during the stifling hot summer months. The furnishing is adequate, no-nonsense IKEA fare down to the brightly colored sheets. There is a small fully equipped kitchen (no oven) and a very small but sufficient fridge. To us, eating out quickly loses its appeal if you have to do it every day so it was nice to be able to occasionally make simple dishes like Spaghetti Aglio I Olio or cook some artichokes to be enjoyed with some wine after a long day of sightseeing. A particular PLUS for the place are three things that can –at least from our past experience- prove sore points in Italy. One: there is plenty of hot water for all occupants to have decent showers in the morning! Two and three: The heating system works in cold weather and the AC works in hot weather! The owner, Emanuela, is very helpful and will provide you with loads of useful information before you arrive. She also responds to e-mails and text messages within an hour at the most. Her assistant, Mauro, speaks good English and explained the workings of the place well. Our seven days have been an altogether memorable experience and we will definitely be back!
Hey, we write here only a short production & Cons list for a quick overview ...
- Great location, right in the middle and still quiet
- Many small cafes and restaurants in the surrounding area
- Clean room
- Comfortable bed
- Basic equipment available, such as hair dryer, pots, pans, salt, sugar, coffee, etc.
- No bus ticket needed, everything is within walking distance
Ok very clean for Italian standards, for German -
- A bit small for men from 1,85 m not recommended Bad,
Highly recommended is the La Prosciutteria on Via della Scala, only 8 doors down from the apartment, as well as the opposite location Pizzeria La Scaletta.
To drink in the morning a delicious espresso or cappuccino, you should proceed to the, neighborhood of Frankfurt at the corner cafe "Settimiano". Try the delicious croissants there :)
The road from the airport to the apartment takes a little longer, but is easy to make. On the plane we bought bus tickets for 4 euros per person and were taken by bus to Termini. From there we drove 4 stops by the blue metro line, which cost 1.50 Euro per person. 10- 15 minute walk and we were there. If you do not know exactly where they need long to ask for simple, all Italians were very friendly and helpful to us.
Marco, an employee of Emanuela, took us in reception, gave us the keys and explained everything. It is perfectly adequate if you call Marco on landing or 15 minutes before arriving at the apartment.
- Vatican 20 minutes
- Pantheon 20 minutes
- Campo di Fiori 10 minutes
- Colloseum 45 minutes
To get to the St. Peter's Basilica, you should hire the best one hour before the opening, ie at 8 clock.
When Vatikanischemuseum You should already be there two hours before.
We spent a day previously booked a tour of the museum for 46 Euros per person. The groups are admitted, so we have to queue 15 minutes and were after our tour of the museum and the Sistine Chapel go directly to St. Peter's Basilica without us hiring again.
We hope you have a nice stay just as we in Rome and wish you much fun
Hey, wir schreiben hier nur eine kurze Pro- & Contraliste für einen schnellen Überblick...
- super Lage, mitten drin und trotzdem ruhig
- viele kleine Cafe´s und Restaurants in der näheren Umgebung
- sauberes Zimmer
- bequemes Bett
- Grundausstattung vorhanden, wie zum Beispiel Föhn, Töpfe, Pfannen, Salz, Zucker, Kaffee etc.
- kein Busticket nötig, alles ist zu Fuß erreichbar
- für Italienische Standards sehr sauber, für Deutsche ok
- Bad etwas klein, für Männer ab 1,85 m nicht zu empfehlen
Sehr zu empfehlen ist die La Prosciutteria auf der Via della Scala, nur 8 Häuser weiter vom Apartment aus, sowie die gegenüber gelegene Pizzeria La Scaletta.
Um morgens einen leckeren Espresso oder Cappuccino zu trinken, gehen sie am besten zu dem, an der Ecke gelegenden Cafe "Settimiano". Probieren Sie dort auch die leckeren Crossaints:)
Der Weg vom Flughafen zum Apartment dauert etwas länger, ist aber einfach zu gestalten. Im Flugzeug haben wir Bustickets für 4 Euro pro Person gekauft und wurden mit dem Bus direkt zum Termini gebracht. Von dort aus sind wir mit der blauen Metrolinie 4 Stationen gefahren, was 1,50 Euro pro Person gekostet hat. 10- 15 Minuten Fußweg und wir waren da. Wenn Sie nicht genau wissen wo sie lang müssen fragen Sie einfach nach, alle Italiener waren sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit zu uns.
Marco, ein angestellter von Emanuela, nahm uns in Empfang, gab uns die Schlüssel und erklärte uns alles. Es reicht vollkommen aus, wenn Sie Marco bei der Landung oder 15 Minuten vor der Ankunft im Apartment anrufen.
- Vatikan 20 Minuten
- Pantheon 20 Minuten
- Campo di Fiori 10 Minuten
- Colloseum 45 Minuten
Um in den St. Petersdom zu gelangen sollten Sie sich am besten eine Stunde vor der Eröffnung, also um 8 Uhr anstellen.
Beim Vatikanischemuseum sollten Sie schon zwei Stunden vorher da sein.
Wir haben einen Tag zuvor für 46 Euro pro Person eine Führung durch das Museum gebucht. Die Gruppen werden vorgelassen, daher haben wir nur 15 Minuten anstehen müssen und konnten nach unsere Führung durch das Museum und der Sixtinische Kapelle direkt in den St. Petersdom gehen ohne uns erneut anzustellen.
Wir hoffen ihr habt einen genauso schönen Aufenthalt wie wir in Rom und wünschen euch viel Spaß
Wonderful apartment with great charm in the perfect location in the heart of Trastevere. We got lots of valuable information of Emanuela lioness trip which was very helpful. Emanuelas assistant Mauro waited several hours to be able to hand over the key when our plane / taxi was delayed.
To receive a 10 would be a new / softer bed to make the difference.
Underbar lägenhet med stor charm på perfekt läge i hjärtat av Trastevere. Vi fick massor av värdefull information av Emanuela inna resan vilket var till stor hjälp. Emanuelas assistent Mauro väntade i flera timmar på att kunna lämna över nyckeln då vårt plan/taxi var försenat.
För att få en 10 skulle en ny/mjukare säng göra skillnaden.
We absolutely felt in love with Emanuela's place! Best choise for staying in Rome - Parioli is a beautiful district, well-located, not very touristic, with great places for dinner and breakfast nearby (We loved a lot our breakfasts with fresh croissants in Il Dodo (2 mins from flat - just cross the street, and dinner in La Pariolina - same located just at the opposite side of the street). The supermarket is also in walking distance.
The flat itself is just terrific. First of all, it is a real "villa" inside the house :) If you will go there you will understand what I mean :) Very tidy, spacious, full of light, 2 comfortable bedrooms (although we were 2 couples and 1 room had 2 separate beds we had a comfortable sleep for 3 nights). There are even windows in the ceiling which we loved a lot! The bathroom is spacious and clean, the kitchen is very comfortable and well-equipped.
Emanuela's assistant Mauro was very polite and was waiting for us when we were late due to the tough traffic in Rome (if you travel in the evening by car from the Southern part of Rome - estimate your staying in the traffic for at least 2 hours, as the flat is located just in the opposite part of Rome). Although we've found a free parking near the home next day we dropped off the car as it is almost impossible to drive it in Rome - better choose a scooter :D
Villa Borghese is just 20 mins walking, the city centre - 40 mins by foot or 15 mins by bus. We have chosen walking and enjoyed the beautiful streets of Rome.
We did not meet Emanuela herself, but she communicates with us very responsibly and she is very reliable, she gave us all directions and a lot of tips before our arrival to Rome, which we appreciate a lot.
Emanuela, thank you for everything! We enjoyed our stay and definitely next time in Rome will come back to your place!
Grazie mille and buona fortuna!
We spent 3 nights at this apartment during a long weekend in Rome. The apartment is very nice and stays cool during the hot days. It has all the stuff that one could need and the location is just fantastic, right in the middle of Trastevere but remains very quiet and silent during the night.
Everything was really good organized by Emanuela and Mauro and we really think is an excellent solution for visiting Rom!
Just an information: you barely see the host, it is really just an apartment for you and maybe this is something slightly different that other Wimdu possibilities.
We were very pleased with the apartment. Clean, cozy and quiet. Located in the fantastic neighborhood of Trastevere. You step from the rest of the apartment, the door of the building and you are immediately in the social life of the Via della Scala! Restaurants, shops and atmosphere of daily life in Rome just around the corner. Highly recommended. A small niggle we found it some narrow bed, but (for us) further we found in the apartment a homely and personal atmosphere back.
Wij waren bijzonder tevreden over het appartement. Schoon, gezellig en rustig. Gelegen in de fantastische buurt Trastevere. Je stapt na de rust van het appartement de poort van het gebouw uit en je staat meteen in het gezellige leven van de Via della Scala! Restaurantjes, winkeltjes en de sfeer van dagelijks leven van Rome meteen om de hoek. Een aanrader. Een klein minpuntje vonden wij het (voor ons) wat te smalle bed, maar verder vonden wij in het appartement een huiselijke en persoonlijke sfeer terug.
