Casetta is a small studio apartment on the Aventino hill, a few steps from the FAO, the "mouth of truth", Colosseum and the breathtaking Aventino view point. Located on the ground floor of a early 30's building it's made of a entrance with kitchenette, table, wardrobe and a separated sleeping area, divided by a wall.
The bathroom has a large shower and the studio is perfectly equipped for a long stay. Many of the city's most important sights, such as Trastevere, Borgo Pio, Saint Peter Basilica, Vatican Museum, Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps, are all reachable within walking distance or short bus/metro drive. Public transports (trams, trains and buses) are just a block away and there are bus stops in every corner. A train line that will bring you to the airport in 25 minutes is only two blocks away!
Maria's apartment was perfect for me. Within walking distance of the FAO, shops, bars and restaurants. The family was extremely helpful and provided everything I needed.
We were in Rome from 13- 20 of oktober.
We really were shocked when we saw the building in which the flat is situated .The whole building was covered with scaffolds and plastic covers . The flat, which in other times will be ok, was nearly without daylight, and damp. The work, very noisy, began each morning at 8 and lasted the whole day.
We contacted Maria, who didn't know anything about this situation,because she is only the ' guest planner' for the owner..(?)
We didn't find it appropriate, that we weren't informed before about the building activities, in that case we should have chosen to look for something else to rent.
We got a small refund. We had a very lovely week in Rome, beautiful weather, and the Testaccio neighbourhood is quiet and has many good restaurants.
But I will advise others to make very sure that the building activities are finished before renting.
The place is very close to FAO, clean and very nice. Overall, it was a great experience and I would recommend the place! The house keeper is very responsive. For example, the internet wasn't working one of the days and as soon as I mentioned it to him, he sorted it out. The only down side was that they were doing construction on the building so with the platforms outside the windows there wasn't much light entering the apartment.
A great little spot that is easy walking distance to Pyramide train station, and about 25 mins easy walk to the UN's FAO which overlooks Circus Maximo. Very good internet service, clean and colourful place, comfortable bed! Thanks
