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.

Avis sur les autres logements de cet hôte
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!
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 met by Mauro at the apartment and was so taken by surprised at the place. It was smaller than what we saw on the internet and the sofa bed at the attic was a nightmare. The sofa bed keeps going out of place and the it was too small for 2 person. Getting up was also a nightmare as we keep getting our heads knock each time we get up. Cutleries was not sufficient and toilet door can be opened even when we lock it from the insides. The main bed (pull out) was right in front of the stove. We had a big big bad nightmare staying there for 5 nights.

Dès la réservation simple et rapide, contact préalable sympathique et rappel avant le départ.
Accueil sans souci même si nous avons prévenu d'un léger retard.
Appartement conforme à la description. Pratique dans la quartier Trastevere.
Det här var ett fantastiskt fint ställe! Mitt i hjärtat av Trastevere, och ändå lugnt och stillsamt med den lilla ljuvliga innergården. Ett litet bort under ett apelsinträd. Lägenheten var personligt och mysigt inredd. Det kan inte bli bätte! Tusen tack... vi kommer igen och rekommenderar den varmt.
Das Apartment hat eine tolle Lage im schönen Trastevere. Es war ruhig und sicher.
Alle Sehenswuerdigkeiten sind zu Fuß oder mit Tram und Bus , in wenigen Minuten zu erreichen. Service war auch okay. Vorab bekamen wir einiges an Info Material zugesandt. Schlüsselübergabe war problemlos. Apartment sauber und gemütlich.
Matratze war auch gut.
Die Schlüsselübergabe klappte nach vorheriger Verständigung vor Ort problemlos. Die mehretagig offene Wohnung erwies sich in der Ausstattung aber etwas provisorisch, u.a. z.B.mit einem instabilen Treppengeländer, das unmittelbar vor dem Bad aufgestellte Einzelbett kann nicht ernsthaft zur Nutzung empfohlen werden. Auf dem Marktplatz vor dem Haus herrscht rege jugendliche Betriebsamkeit bis in die späten Abendstunden und ab frühestem Morgen durch den täglichen Aufbau der Marktstände - bei offenem Fenster zwecks notwendiger Lüftung nicht angenehm. Der reduzierte Preis der Wohnung ist daher durchaus begründet, die Lage der Wohnung im Trastevere-Viertel für alle Unternehmungen jedoch sehr günstig.
Alles war hervorragend. Eine nette Kontaktaufnahme, Unterstützung und Hilfe wenn wir einen Ansprechpartner kurzfristig brauchten und die Räumlichkeiten waren sauber, ordentlich und gut für alltägliche Nutzung einer Familie ausgestattet. Wir bedanken und für eine sehr schöne Zeit als Gast im schönen Trastevere, das wirklich keine Wünsche zum gemütlichen Sitzen, guten Essen und günstigem Einkaufen offen lässt!
Apartamento en un lugar privilegiado como es Trastevere. El edificio estaba en reformas, por lo que la estancia se nos hizo un poquito incomoda. Seria conveniente aprovechar esas obras para reformar totalmente el cuarto de baño del apartamento y darle un cambio de look al mobiliario y decoración.
