Sono stato in vacanza con tutta la famiglia (5 componenti) e ci siamo trovati benissimo. Vicino alla metropolitana e ben collegato con le principali strade. Lo suggerisco a tutti e se mai dovessi tornare sarà sicuramente la Mia scelta. Maurizio è stato gentilissimo e disponibile per tutto e tutti.
It was a perfect stay and Maurizio and his father took great care of us!
The apartment was really charming!
Great apartment, very pleasant, clean, convenient, close to transport. And a great reception from Maurizio and his family !
We had a wonderful stay at Maurizio's apartment. It was spacious and very clean. It was only two stops to the Colosseum so we had no trouble getting in to the centre of things!
At the Ostiense station is a wonderful food supermarket/restaurant store - called Eataly, a foodie heaven. HIghly recommended!
We had a wonderful time here - would definitely recommend! There are excellent facilities in a very spacious (family-size) apartment, with huge beds, a powerful shower and a balcony with a seating area sticking out in particular. In addition, guidebooks and maps are provided which are invaluable, as Rome is overflowing with things to do and you WILL want to maximise your time here - we stayed for 5 days and have barely scratched the surface; however long you're considering staying for, I'd strongly recommend adding at least an extra day or two! Maurizio is an excellent host, picked us up from the station when we were running behind and also offered an airport transfer service in the early hours of the morning - this itself is highly recommended and is very competitively priced, much cheaper than a taxi (don't just take my word for it; you can see for yourself - Rome's taxis have their to-the-airport prices written on the doors). The apartment is in an excellently enviable location, just off-centre - this is ideal as a way of conveniently 'opting-out' of the inevitable city-centre bustle when you wish to rest (especially if you visit in summer), while also being ideally suited in all manner of ways: the nearest metro is a short walk away, and buses even closer. It's also perfect as a base for walking (and Rome, more so than most - if not all - cities, rewards walkers very highly indeed) - you can walk from present-day into ancient Rome in about half an hour; a pleasant stroll from this apartment can take you past the Baths of Caracalla, the Circus Maximus, Palatine Hill, the Roman Forum and onto the Colosseum rather nicely. Head another direction and the start of Via Appica Antica is just as close. Furthermore, the neighbourhood itself (Garbatella) is well-stocked with bars, cafes, supermarkets and so on (Eataly, next door to Ostiense station, stands out) and is itself a pleasant place to hang out when not in the centre (art aficionados may wish to note that Centrale Montemartini is just behind the metro station). In short: excellent facilities, superb location; would certainly recommend. In addition, regarding Rome in general: stay for as long as you possibly can; there is more to do here than in most places on the planet - you won't regret it!
We had a nice stay Maurizio was great, perfect host, took the time to show us around and left great maps of historical sites in walking distance. The apt was very clean and comfortable for our family of 5.
This place is awesome! We were a group of five 20 year olds travelling from Australia and Rome was one of our stops. This apartment is really cool and fresh and has everything you could hope for in an AirBnB. Maurizio was a great host and stayed in touch through the entire week to make sure we were all okay. On top of that a couple of us got the flu and needed to stay longer, even though Maurizio at the time was away he still got in contact and was able to accommodate us to our needs.
The area around the apartment is really good, it is super cheap and you get great value for money everywhere. As soon as you go central Rome of course the prices more then triple.
100% would stay say here to any kind of group.
This was a great apartment! Maurizio was SO sweet and helpful - he took more time than anyone else to make sure we had everything we needed and knew where to go. Clean and spacious and comfortable.
At first glance the neighborhood seems like a boring modernish suburb, but don't let that fool you. You area minutes away from the ancient city walls, remnants of the Appian Way, and the catacombs of Saint Sebastian, one of the oldest basilicas in Rome. The metro is easy to walk to and is just a few stops from the Colosseum.
When we had to leave at an ungodly morning hour to catch our flight, Maurizio sent a driver to take us straight to the airport for 40€, which was easier than a bus and probably cheaper than a taxi. Also rumor has it that the driver was his father? Sweetest old man.
This was a great place to stay. We'd recommend it.
Maurizio was responsive and helpful (he even arranged a driver for my mother and brother to the airport for a fee). The apartment was clean, bigger than expected and practical for a week stay for a family. The area the apartment was in was not that nice, and was a bit far from the center of Rome, which was a little frustrating to have to get to using the bus (the Metro stop is pretty far away too). I would highly recommend visting Eataly at the Ostiense Train station though--what a great find! The room charge for air conditioning was very steep, and I think it should be included in the price of the room; we didn't use it since it was relatively cool at night but during the day it was blisteringly hot--good thing we were out of the apartment during that time! The beds were also a little uncomfortable. Despite this, though, we had an excellent time, a smooth check in and check out and a lovely stay for almost a week in the apartment. We loved all the space and would recommend it to families and small groups!
EDIT ON 26 June: Recommendable but with caution-Maurizio left very harsh criticism on my profile because I left a truthful review, even though I recommended the apartment. He called my remarks "stupid", even though the reason for why I brought them up was because my mother has a very bad back and it is hard for her to get around; these are important things that some similar people might want to know. This dampened the whole experience for us and leaves me not wanting to return.
Also I'd like to add that he charged 2 euro a day for an Italian tourist tax which is not common for non-Europeans to have so we did not expect it and it's something that should be listed on his profile.
I had a great stay at maurizio's place. It was spacious and comfortable. Maurizio is extremely nice and helpful. He provided easy instructions to his place from Roma termini and he greeted us on the street. The place is a little far from the centre of Rome but its close to bus stops and metro. The comfort of this apartment is worth the extra travel time every morning.
