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.

This apartment is a gem!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been happier with our stay at Casa Testaccio. The apartment has everything we needed, and wanted, to be completely comfortable and make it our home for 5 days. Carlo and Alessandra are wonderful hosts and make themselves available to answer questions if needed. Testaccio is a real Roman neighborhood with great little shops for buying food and plenty of restaurants. The area is part of ancient Rome so its an interesting place to explore and not touristy (don't miss The Pyramide and old grave yard). Its easy to get to all the major sites in the city. The bus stop is just 5 minutes away and we even walked to the Colosseum. If you are looking for a place to stay in Rome we would highly recommend staying here. Thank you Carlo and Alessandra!

Very comfortable, excellent location, kind hosts

  • 5 of 5

Of the numerous short-term apartments my wife and I have rented in the past five years on four continents, this one stands out as my best overall experience. The apartment is stylish, comfortable, clean and excellently located, away from tourist traps but close to the principal attractions and many good restaurants.. It offers outstanding value. Carlo and Alessandra are excellent hosts, available within minutes to answer any questions, and full of helpful suggestions about restaurants and sites in Rome. During our visit an elevator was being installed in the building. This would eliminate the only possible downside – the three flights of stairs to the apartment, which we didn't mind but may be an issue for some.
