EDP Approved: Rome Airbnbs
Another Rome trip under my belt and my 4th time staying in an Airbnb in the Eternal City. Honestly, I’ve always had great experiences with Airbnb (knock on wood!). I know for some there’s apprehension over the whole renting-someone-else’s-place-thing, so I’m here to vouch for 4 great places for your next trip. I’m a huge proponent of Airbnb’s over hotels in certain cities - Rome being one of them. There are SO many beautiful places to rent that are located in less touristy areas (ie: Trestevere) and 99% of the time they are much more cost effective.
LOVELY TRESTEVERE - 1 bedroom (sleeps 4) in the heart of Trestevere- this is where we stayed most recently and the location was perfect! Just around the corner from all the great spots in Trestevere; everything is super walkable. A major plus is the AC. Sometimes wall units can be a little iffy with these 800 yr old buildings, understandably, but this one did not disappoint. The host also coordinated all of our transportation from the airport and to the cruise ship which was super helpful.
SCALA IN TRESTEVERE - 1 bedroom (sleeps 4) in Trestevere - ironically I think this is possibly on the same block as the place above. GREAT LOCATION! Andy and I stayed here during his first trip to Rome. Everything was great. The AC wasn’t amazing but we also went in August when it was 90 degrees out.
RILASSANTE APPARTAMENTO - 1 bedroom (sleeps 4) in Trestevere - I stayed here about 4 years ago when I did my first solo trip abroad. Walking distance to all the great spots in Trestevere (not as close as the other two) and right across the bridge from the main city center of Rome.
Between the 3 above, if you were to put 4 people in one I would go with the first (Lovely Trestevere)- it’s the biggest over all.
COLLOSEUM CONDIMINIUM - 4 bedroom (sleeps 12) near Colloseum - this place is HUGE and great for a big group trip or large family. I stayed here awhile back with my family (6 of us) and we loved it. It’s centrally located near the Colloseum but not in an insanely touristy spot. There’s great local restaurants up and down the street including an awesome breakfast spot literally right when you step outside. Realistically sleeping 12 would be a little cramped, I would say no more than 8-10.
