This is a nice & well priced apartment away from the city. The room is complete with everything, it even have 2 LCD TVs, free wifi, toiletries, slippers, a complete kitchen with microwave & an electric kettle for boiling water. The towels are changed and the room were cleaned everyday. It comes with a big balcony, but since it's winter, we didn't sit outside a lot, maybe in the summer it is nice to sit & have dinner there. I've read a lot about the loud noise or music there, but we didn't have any problem. We heard some music sound but it is too soft to disturb us. We slept like babies all the 3 nights we were there, and mind you we were there on friday, saturday & sunday.
The staff are nice & friendly, and they also speaks English. We were greeted by a young nice lady. She was helpful in showing us where to eat, where the train stations are, provide us with a map, telling us places of interest & other stuffs a tourist needs. Wish i could remember her name. Anyway gratzie mille Bella! :)
The apartment is actually not in Trastevere, but near Testaccio. This is actually the highlight of our stay at Lungotevere Suite. Testaccio is a beautiful neighborhood, lots of wet markets, restaurants, cafes, bars, shops, supermarkets, etc...and they are cheaper than around the Rome city area. This is what we wanted anyway, living among the locals, get to know them and experience the culture, not like the tourist areas, where you have more foreigners living there than the locals. We met a lot of locals here, made some new friends and ate some good italian food!
The metro, trams, buses are just walking distances, but there are times when we walk to our destination, heck we even walk to The Vatican in the rain! Along the way we discover a street market which sells cheap leather goods, souvenirs, t-shirts, cheese, local foods and more. This is by far the cheapest in Rome that we've found! The street market is so long i think we covered about 1km by the time we reached the end. Oh and there are Police patrolling along the street market, so don't worry about nothing. By the way, don't forget to bargain, you are allowed here.
All in all, i am happy we chose this place. Like a lot of people said here, if u don't mind the distant, this is a good and value for money place to stay. Mind you, this is our first ever visit to Italy and Europe, and we don't have any problems staying a bit far from the city center. We do get lost sometimes, but that's where the fun begins! You discover so much when you're lost, even about yourself and your mates. You definitely can't buy that :). So what are you waiting for, LETS GET LOST!!
