About this listing
Faites comme chez vous dans un joli studio sur deux niveaux au cœur du quartier.
A charming independent studio in the heart of Testaccio, the heart of Rome.
The studio, 20 square meters, is located on the ground floor of a characteristic Testaccio building and it spans across two connected floors.
On the ground floor there is a living room ( sofa bed, small kitchenette and dining table) and the bathroom, and the mezzanine houses a double bed.
The studio has been completely refurbished recently and is equipped with air conditioning. It is lit by a large window that overlooks one of the typical central streets of Testaccio, among lots of small shops and cafes.
Equipped with a double bed and a sofa-bed, the studio can accommodate up to 2-3 people (in the same environment.)
The small kitchen comes fully equipped with dishes, fridge, sink and electric hob allows you to be independent in the preparation of meals.
The apartment is ideal for a young couple with small children.
The studio is located in the heart of Testaccio, where it preserves the most genuine soul of Rome. You will find that spontaneity of the ancient Roman people who disappeared in the other districts of the historic centre.
Our neighbourhood offers the best restaurants, trattorias and pizzerias in the city, as well as hosting - for those interested - a lively range of nightlife, with many discos and clubs in the area around Monte dei Cocci. In addition, there are theatres, cinemas, pubs, bars, etc...
The neighbourhood is served by a number of supermarkets, shops, and a historic street market .
A few minutes' walk you can reach Trastevere , Colosseum , the Imperial Forum and the Circus Maximus.
The connection to public transportation around Rome is excellent: several bus lines stop one block away, even at night. Also, 7 minutes walk away, there is the Metro B station Piramide. A 15-minutes walk from the studio takes you to the Ostiense Station, which offers 2 hourly train connections to Fiumicino Airport lasting about half an hour.
Discountec rates are available for those who stay longer than one week.
I live nearby and I will be happy to assist you during your stay in Rome.
You are kindly requested to:
- leave the studio in the same condition of your arrival;
- be respectful of the quietness of the people living in the neighborhood and in the condominium;
- divide garbage according to the municipal rules on differentiated collection (organic, inorganic, paper, metal and glasses);
- not waste water and electric energy, also due to the limited capacity of the water boiler;
- not throw any object in the water drainage;
- not smoke and bring pets.
3G Internet connection available.
Check-in time from 3 pm to 9 pm; check-out before midday. Special arrangements may be agreed up on case by case basis.
We really enjoyed our stay in the studio, it's small but it's perfect for two people, we were really comfortable and we had everything we needed (towels, toilet paper, soap, kitchen utilities...).
The studio is really close to the metro station piramide and not too far from all the touristic spots, we could walk almost everywhere.
Michele was very flexible with the check in and check out time, as our flights timetables were kind of crazy having the chance to get to the apartment early in the morning or leaving in the afternoon made our trip much more comfortable. If I go back to Rome I would definitely stay there again. I really recommend it for couples staying a few days in the city.
My boyfriend and I had a lovely stay in Testaccio at Micheles studio. Michele's mother welcomed us to the apartment and made us feel immediately at home. I was grateful they accommodated our late arrival at 11pm. The apartment was clean and exactly as depicted. The neighborhood was perfect and walking distance (a mile) to the roman forum and colloseum. We even walked to Trevi fountain and all around town. Great exercise! And the bus and metro are right around the corner if you don't feel like walking. I highly recommend Micheles studio to anyone traveling to Rome.
Nous avons été très bien reçu,Michele était très gentil et accueillant. L'appartement était selon nos goût et très propre et très confortable. Très satisfait
Apartment itself was great. A little studio close to public transport, restaurants and shops in a very non-touristy neighbourhood. Laundromat only a few mins walk and easy to walk into town if you want.
However the apartment is on the ground floor next to the entrance, the street noise is very loud during the day and night. You can hear people talking while walking past, cars etc.. And because this area has a lot of good restaurants and bars there are people walking past the apartment until the early hours of the morning. Then you have people walking out of the apartment building on their phones making noise.
Michele and his mum who met us were very nice and helpful.
The internet didn't work for us during our stay either - very frustrating!
Nous avons eu un agréable séjour. C'est exactement ce à quoi nous nous attendions. En plus, il y avait l'air climatisé!
I booked Michele's place for my uncles' trip in Rome. The place ended up not being to their taste after seeing it in person, so they stayed at a hotel nearby. Even though I haven't seen it and my uncles haven't stayed there so that they form an objective critic, I would like to comment on Michele.. Michele was always accesible and easy to find to solve to problem. Moreover, he was willing to help in any mean he could and to communicate with both me and my uncles. He was also willing to refund us a bigger amount of the one we were supposed to get after my application for cancelling the stay, and he actually did that immediately. So, for the ease of conmunication and for his ability and will to solve any problems, I would highly recommend his place for your stay.
