The apartment

Al Portoncino is a lovely apartment located in a quiet alley of the central and charming neighbourhood of Trastevere. Authorised by the City of Rome, there is a legal requirement of minimum 3 night stay. On the 1st (2nd USA) floor of a 17th cent. building, it has been newly refurbished and finely decorated with original wood beam ceilings and a limestone chimney.

Provided with: AC; independent heating system; fast wi-fi; PC; telephone for free calls within the city and a complimentary mobile phone; LCD-TV, CD-player and iPod dock; fully equipped kitchen; dish-washer and washing machine; very comfortable king size bed; bathroom with shower. Bed linens and towels are provided and changed every 3 days. Housekeeping is included when staying longer than 6 days.

PERFECT LOCATION. This flat is located in a quiet and safe alley in the very core of the neighbourhood of Trastevere, a most charming area with plenty of bars, traditional restaurants, and amazing buildings and churches. The apartment is round the corner from the central square of the basilica of Santa Maria in Trastevere. From here you can basically walk to all the central and most attractive sightseeings of the City, yet having access to surface public transports and taxi stations – there is no metro service within the very centre of the city due to archaeological risk.

ROOMS AND AMENITIES. The apartment is divided into: a spacious dining room with a table and 4 chairs; a fully equipped kitchen with dish-washer, electric oven, microwave, 4 gas stoves, a refrigerator and plenty of pots and other accessories for cooking; a living room with a trundle sofa-bed – very comfortable and easy to operate, an armchair, a romantic chimney, and a library provided with amazing books about the history and art of Rome, in addition to the most recent guide books. A useful PC with ADSL and wi-fi internet is also available. A sliding door leads to a double bedroom with a king-size bed and a big closet where to store your private belongings. There is one bathroom with shower, WC, washing basin and bidet. A lovely balcony opened to the internal courtyard is decorated with Mediterranean flowers and plants, ideal for your relaxing moments.

OPTIMAL NUMBER OF GUESTS. The apartment is designed for a couple or for a family of max 4. Upon request, facilities for infants under 3 years can be provided (baby-crib and bed; changing; high chair; baby-plates, cutlery and cups).

THE OUTSIDE. The condo is a small unit of only 9 apartments, attached to a series of other similar traditional buildings of different colours and shapes, which is what gives a special character to Trastevere and to the very area of our apartment in particular. There are no chaotic restaurants or bars next to it, but the most famous Roman cuisine restaurant of the area is right across a side alley, as well as plenty of other choices are available nearby without affecting the tranquility of the apartment.

CHECK-IN/OUT. We try our best to guarantee check-in after 12.30 pm. If available, we are happy to arrange it anytime before. Check-out is usually by 10 am – again we can be flexible according to availability. Luggage can be safely stored for a few hours after check-out.
For check-ins after 8.30 pm there is a surcharge of 25 euros.

OWNERS. Federica and Franco live very nearby and will be happy to assist you during your stay. They can arrange pick-up/drop-off at a reasonable price.
