Fabulous property/perfect location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was spotless and had everything one could need. The bed is very comfortable with nice linens and towels. The owner quickly responded to my questions before our arrival and was gratious and welcoming when we got there. They provided coffee, snacks, wine and wonderful desserts. The location is perfect as it is only a 3 minute walk to the metro which is needed after seeing the sights. It is very quiet and the local plaza is charming and all of the neighboring restaurants are wonderful. We highly recommend this lovely home and would stay there again if we get back to Rome. Thank you for helping us have a fabulous experience.

We coud not have been more delighted or impressed! Perfecto!

  • 5 of 5

As a VRBO 5 star host (eighty four 5 star reviews for my property on a 5 star resort in the USA), I know what it entails to achieve such a rating. Casa Testaccio 2 and its owners have excelled in all aspects of such a system. The apartment is sooo pristine and tastefully designed and decorated. The concept of using mirrors to enhance and enrich the space was so well thought out and unique. It is clearly an up-scale design that captues the warmth and character, the new and the old, and all the beauty that is Rome. After an 11 hour flight, the hosts greeted us with such warmth and genuiness that all of our exhaustion was immediately abated. They made us feel that they would be available if we needed them further and that they genuinely cared about our stay in their home and in their neighborhood.

The location was perfect in that we could walk to most all the major sights and neighborhoods and yet were not in the middle of a bustling, congested tourist zone. We felt that being right on the outskirts of those areas gave us much more of the experiences and feel of a true Roman neighborhod. I thank our hosts for that; and I could not rate them more highly.

Beautiful Apartment in the heart of Rome

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was stylish, clean and comfortable. The bed, appliances, and bathroom were all excellent.

The location was the best. Near the subway and restaurants and an easy 10 or 15 minute walk from the tourist areas, but not in a tourist area. I doubt we saw a single tourist in that area in the three days of our stay. I should add that tourists are OK, but at times in Rome the shear number can be oppressive. We were really happy being just outside of the tourist area.

Finally, our hosts, Carlo and Alessandra, were excellent - extremely helpful and gave us plenty of their time. On one occasion there was a small problem and they were there to fix it in minutes. They were terrific hosts and it was a terrific apartment

Perfect base for a Roman holiday

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful and immaculate flat with plenty of amenities in a quiet, yet central location. Carlo and Allessandra gave us a tour of the neighbourhood and made recommendations. They are the perfect hosts and furnished the flat with lovely extra touches. This is the finest self catering property we've ever stayed and we would recommend it without hesitation. Thanks Carlo and Allesandra for a perfect stay!

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is exactly as pictured and immaculately clean. It is well appointed and has everything you need for a comfortable stay. The bed is incredibly comfortable! Carlo obviously wants his guests to enjoy both the apartment and the neighborhood. He did a thorough walkthrough of the apartment and then took me on an equally thorough tour of the lovely neighborhood, pointing out restaurants, bakeries and shops. I took his advice and had morning coffee with the locals at a cafe a short walk from the apartment. Just lovely! Piazza Testaccio is a minute's walk away and so charming, especially in the early evening with kids playing and people catching up with one another. It's bordered by places where you can eat in or get take out to enjoy in the piazza. There is also a supermarket that stays open later than others. The Piramide metro stop is nearby, but you can easily walk to many places of interest. I recommend both the apartment and neighborhood and hope to stay again in the future.

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about this place. It was a gorgeous apartment and was exactly as shown in the pictures. Clean and cozy. The owners were very kind and took the time to show us around the neighborhood.

The apartment is in a great location easily accessible by train from the airport. The collosuem, mouth of truth, Roman forum, magic door and circus maximus are all within walking distance. It was easy to access the bus to see the heart of Rome and nice to return to a little neighborhood area filled with restaurants and little shops.

I would highly recommend this place to anyone traveling to Rome. Thank you again for sharing your lovely apartment with us.
