Interaction with Guests
I usually respond within an hour or so unless it's night time here in Los Angeles (Rome time - 9 hrs).
Walking distance to Circo Massimo, Bocca della verità, Campo de Fiori and the club district, Testaccio is the beating heart of the city. This is the best neighborhood for restaurants and bars in Rome, and it's very well-connected, with plenty of buses and the metro easily connecting it to the rest of the city.
Testaccio is definitely the perfect place to make your base in Rome!
☆ metro station Piramide
☆ train station Ostiense (fast connection to Fiumicino Airport),
☆ bus lines 170 or 30 or 74 or 3.
Other Things to Note
The apartment overlooks the Porticus Aemilia Monumental Gardens that opened to the public in May 2015.
☆ ENJOY THE A/C! BUT, it's an old Italian house, the electrical supply is not consistent. The A/C at full speed WILL shut off power. The main is located in the cellar, so it's a bit of a pain. Keeping it at 24-26 °C is recommended and it will cool the place down even in the hottest day. Please close the windows and turn it off when you go out. Also, the tank on the balcony gets full, please empty it.
☆ The wood floor and the marble in the kitchen ask for a little respect but I'm sure you know that.
☆ Be nice and quiet to neighbors especially at night time!
☆ Please remember to close the elevator's internal doors or it'll get stuck at the floor. Older people live in the building and they need the elevator.
Our experience in Giorgio's apartment was pleasant. The apartment was as described and as shown in the photographs. Giorgio's was prompt to reply to our messages and his housekeeper was waiting for us upon our arrival and showed us around the apartment.
Staying in Giorgio’s apartment really made our trip, it was perfect - just as described. Located in a more local spot, you get to enjoy mixing with the local community away from the crowded tourist areas but it’s close enough to walk to most spots. The metro line isn’t too far and the train station (which goes to and from Fiumicino airport) was easy to get to. We felt completely safe walking around late at night and made good use of Giorgio’s map which gives some great tips! Do the sunset view, pizza and gelato, you won’t regret it!
The apartment was clean and really nicely furnished. We liked sitting on the balcony in the evenings and having a bite to eat. The air con was a big plus as it was hot when we went (in July).
Giorgio was helpful and messaged us part way through to check all was ok. He was kind enough to let us change our check out time by an hour so we had a little more time make the most of our stay before heading home. We’d definitely stay again!
We loved staying at Giorgio's place in Testaccio! The neighbourhood was great with many good places to eat and markets and the metro station within walking distance, making it very easy for us to get around during our stay. The place itself was very clean and spacious and Giorgio made everything easy with his communication beforehand and leaving a lot of information about the place as well. All in all we had a great stay and would definitely recommend staying here!
Giorgio's apartment was perfect as described and we appreciated his recommendations. Check in was easy to arrange and he was available to answer questions when needed. Highly recommend this place if you want to explore the testaccio neighborhood and see a side of the real Rome. We loved this area much more than anywhere else in Rome we have stayed. Very relaxing, better food and drinks!
We wanted to stay at a genuine part of Rome and Giorgio's flat was in the perfect location: numerous charming restaurants, cafes and even a local market is right next to the accommodation.
The flat was spacious, well equipped and clean.
Giorgio even prepared a digital map with great tips for the surrounding area, this is how we managed to get a stunning sunset view of rome, explored the best local restaurants and attractions.
Connection to the city is very good, several buses and a neary metro station makes the center close.
Hope to be back soon.
Giorgio's apartment was clean, comfortable and in a great location. He was very responsive and easy to get in touch with if we had any issues. If I'm in Rome again I was definitely stay at his place again.
We loved staying in this beautiful Testaccio apartment! The location is excellent, with a really easy walk to Trastevere, which is great for nightlife. Rome is much smaller than it looks on a map, and this location puts you in a good spot to walk to all of the sites. The apartment is a nice and spacious place to come back to, in a calm neighborhood away from heavy tourist traffic. The map that Giorgio provides makes finding nearby restaurants, markets and bars easy. Giorgio was really quick to respond to any questions we had- I would absolutely come back here if I'm in Rome again!
