Don't Miss This Place!!! Great location!!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved it and I know you will too! A beautifully presented 3rd floor apartment with a lift. Our hosts Carlo and Alessandra were amazing. They've answered all our questions we've had, walked with us and showed around. Lovely driver Mauro brought us from the airport and back. Lovely neighborhood, friendly people and public transportation right under your nose!!! Very convenient!!! Subway - short walking distance, many food stores and restaurants. You must visit Trastevere neighborhood - it's a paradise!!! Delicious restaurants, great and relaxing atmosphere! Highly recommended!!! We will definitely stay here next time!!

Caro Carlo, Alessandra e Mauro, grazie di tutto!! Ci manchi già! Spero di vederti in futuro!! Ciao!!!

Fantastic Accomodations

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is everything you could ever hope for while staying in Rome. Our hosts were gracious, helpful and so generous. The apartment was on a quaint street just a few blocks from the metro and an easy walk from ancient Rome. The interior of the apartment is warm and inviting with lots of space and a great bathroom and kitchen. We loved it and I know you will too! We have already recommended it to our friends and should we ever find our way back to Rome we will be staying here again. If you love Gelato, there is a fabulous shop two blocks away and the owner makes all the gelato on the property.

Perfect little oasis in busy Rome.

  • 5 of 5

A beautifully presented 3rd floor apartment with a lift. We had a lovely warm welcome from Carlo and Alessandro, who made sure we were provided with info about all the local amenities and transport links. The apartment was spotless and provided all the facilities we could want. It is in a great location as Tostaccio gives you a taste of an Italian community and is also within a 20 min walk of the main tourist sites. We had a fantastic holiday and would definitely stay here again.

Pleasant service and stay in Carlo & Alessandra apartment in Rome

  • 5 of 5

Wife and me stayed in Carlo & Alessandra apartment in Testaccio for 5 days, and we got very pleasant service (felt like we belong to one friendly family), and the nice stay. This apartment has everything to help enjoying the Rome and Vatican sightseeing, to relax on evening, and to be prepared for the coming tours. We walked to Circus Massimo and Colosseum. Easy walk to the train for FCO, and to the multiple buses. Good and low priced food and restaurants in the Testaccio area around the apartment. Joseph

Roma, Wonderful

  • 4 of 5

Carlo and his wife are Amazing hosts. He found us on the street 1 block before his flat. That was quite a surprise. Flat is great. Everything one needs. Just outside the tourist part of Rome, so its location for bus's or by foot is great. They had a bottle of Vino and everything one needs for a very comfortable stay. We rent thru VRBO all over the place and have many many places to compare to. Carlo sets the bar, the standard. The flat has doors that open into a 4 story open square that has a bit of noise both late night and early am. It's not of the city type but its there, other than that there is NOTHING but positive to say about this place. Besides, one can always just close the doors, but we like the fresh air. Thank you Carlo, you set the bar for the rest of our two week stay thought Italy, and you did well.

Clean, well-appointed apartment in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Carlo and Alessandra's apartment for three weeks while working in Rome. The apartment was perfect for a medium-term stay. The recent renovation really brought out the highlights and the decorating details were special. The apartment is only meters from bus and tram stops, but is shielded from any noise. But it is not really necessary to go far for restaurants and food shops; Testaccio is bursting with great places. I will certainly stay here again.
