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.
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!
Giorgio's apartment is comfortable, clean and well looked after. It was perfect for me and my boyfriend who spent 5 days exploring Rome.
The apartment had everything we needed and we really appreciated the aircon in the bedroom as temperatures hit 34c! The bed was comfortable and the shower was powerful and easy to use.
The area of Testaccio is lovely, it felt very safe and family oriented. It was away from the hustle and bustle and was a lovely relaxing area to come back to in the evening. There is a bus that stops just around the corner from the apartment - you can get to central areas within 20 minutes. There were two small supermarkets nearby and lots of nice restaurants to choose from.
I can't fault Giorgio as a host- he was great at communicating with us before our trip to make sure we knew how to get to the apartment, and very accessible if we had any questions.
Overall we had a lovely stay in Rome and would highly recommend Giorgio and his apartment.
Ottima sistemazione a Roma Testaccio. Appartamento perfettamente corredato ed accogliente.
Giorgio's apartment was fantastic! It is just like the photos and we felt right at home. Testaccio is a great, pretty quiet neighborhood full of locals that is away from the tourist craziness but still close enough to major sites. We would definitely stay here again!
