About This Listing
We find ourselves at the intersection of various quarters of Rome. From this area you can get in touch with the manifold sceneries that render this city so fascinating. On one side, there is the elegant residential area of San Saba with its villas from the beginning of the 20th century, antique churches and gardens hidden behind tall gates. On the other side, there is the folkloric Testaccio quarter, noted for its many Trattorias and night life. In front of the apartment you can see the Aurelian Walls, and within a short, pleasant walk you can reach the Baths of Caracalla, the Circus Maximus and, if you feel up to it, even the Forum Romanum and Collosseum.
The Ostiense area is at the back of the apartment; here you can stock up on typical Italian foods in the stores and restaurants of the modern Eataly building.
Just a few steps away from the apartments, at the Piazzale dei Partigiani, you will find many bus lines (main station), the trains going to Ostiense station, and the metro (Piramide stop); which all together comprehensively cover the entire city.
The bus line 175 stops actually right in front of the building and connects Ostiense station with Termin, bypassing various historically interesting places and following an itinerary that seems to just have been designed as a Tourist guide.
We are thus in a quiet residential area rich in great treasures that can be reached by foot or through one of the numerous means of public transportation readily available.
The apartment has a surface area of 200 square meters and is located in a residential area in the city centre. It can accommodate up to 12 people and is situated on the first floor which can be reached by elevator.
There are five bedrooms in total, three of which are triple bedrooms with a double and a single bed each, and the other two being furnished one with a double, the other with a single bed. Two of the triple bedrooms face towards a pleasant balcony. From the bright master bedroom, arranged with antique furniture and flooded by light entering through the windows on two sides, the large terrace can be accessed directly, as well as through the third triple bedroom.
For a maximum of comfort, there are three separate bathrooms, each complete with a crystal shower box and refined with decorative mosaic and high quality tiles.
The kitchen is completely furnished with state-of-the-art utensils and kitchen equipment: dishwasher, microwave oven, refrigerator and freezer are all available to you.
On cold winter days the large living room with its comfortable sofas in front of the 40" LED TV with DVD player and Sky subscription is the ideal place to come together. The large crystal dining table offers space for all 12 guests.
On warm summer days you can instead fully enjoy the large terrace of 100 square meters, furnished with a dining table and an outside sitting area, where you can relax after a long day of sightseeing in the city.
Other apartment features are air conditioning in all rooms, a washing machine and a free wireless internet connection at your disposal.
The apartment has recently been completely restructured. The antique furniture has been maintained and integrated with more modern furniture, together creating an elegant and welcoming atmosphere.

From the first time I saw the listing on AIRBNB and made contact with our hosts it was everything I hoped for. The pictures of the apartment were beautiful, very reasonably priced and you can only hope that what you see is what you get. It was all that and more. The hosts provided a lot of information up front and we're always accommodating when I had a question. Place was centrally located to buses, trains and attractions. My family and I would highly recommend the hosts and their place, we had a fantastic week.
Wir hatten als Gruppe von 9 Personen einen in allen Aspekten sehr angenehmen und völlig problemlosen Aufenthalt in der Wohnung. Es gibt nichts zu kritisieren. Sehr empfehlenswert auch das Angebot, sich in der Wohnung bekochen zu lassen. Ein italienischer Koch hat uns ein wunderbares 4-Gänge-Menü frisch zubereitet, und das zu einem viel günstigeren Preis als in der Stadt. - Resultat: alles TOP.
Apartamento muito bem localizado e muito aconchegante, limpo e organizado! Minha família adorou! Eu recomendo a todos, são muito profissionais!
The apartment is spacious and nice and it was a good fit for our party of 11 people (2 of them young kids). The high ceilings gives it a spacious feeling. The terrace was a blessing in the hot weather – although parts of it was covered by plastic when we were there.
The host was very accommodating, although they surprised us by requiring a deposit of 300 euros when we arrived at the apartment; which was returned the day we departed. Moreover, we were grateful for the two high chairs, stroller and a baby cot provided for us by the host.
We really liked getting to know the Testaccio area, with its restaurants, delis and markets. Further, it was very easy to get to all of Rome’s attractions by the metro, tram and buses from the Piramide station. Even the train station is close by, where you can take a train to Fiumincino Airport.
Dear Marit, thank you very much for such kind words! We are happy to hear you have enjoyed the apartment and our beautiful city. As you can surely understand, we ask for a security deposit for most of our large apartments, so we can be sure the apartment stays always in a this nice way.
We would be delighted to welcome you back anytime! Thank you again, and many greetings from Rome!
Die Wohnung war einfach perfekt. Wir haben uns wie zu Hause gefühlt,alles war sauber,Waschmaschine, Spülmaschine alles war da. Sind mit 5 Personen angereist und alle hatten Platz und fanden die Wohnung toll. Der Weg zur Metro war nicht weit, zwei Haltestellen und schon war man am Kolosseum.
Die Wohnung würden wir wieder mieten.
Die Wohnung war super klasse, ebenso der Kontakt mit Rubina, Daniela und Belen.
Die Gegend machte einen richtig guten Eindruck. Ein wenig erstaunt waren wir darüber, dass direkt vor der Tür ein Strassenstrich ist. Es hat aber nichts mit einer unsicheren Umgebung zu tun gehabt, jedenfalls haben wir da nichts gemerkt. Diese Wohnung kann ich nur jedem empfehlen, von der Buchung bis zur Abnahme der Wohnung fühlten wir uns gut aufgehoben und waren mit allem zufrieden.
Ein kleiner Kritikpunkt ist noch zu erwähnen: eine Espressomaschine ist nicht ausreichend für soviel Personen, die dort wohnen könnten. Also, stellt noch eine hin, die nächsten Mieter werden sich darüber bestimmt freuen.
Allen, die noch diese Wohnung buchen wünsche ich einen erholsamen Urlaub, den kann man dort haben.
The apartment is GREAT. 5 bedrooms, fully equipped kitchen. Great bathrooms. Great location as very close to train, metro, bus. THE real problem is the agency. They promised that we could get in by 11 and we got in at 11:40 to find out that the cleaning service will come 2 hours later. The cleaning service came hours later so we had the apartment cleaned by a little after 17:00 pm. The person who checked us in and out was very professional. I have never had someone come in at checkout to check that every electric appliance is working, checking each mattress - both sides and every closet. This was somewhat weird. We passed the exam and received our deposit back but it was unpleasant to say the least. We had to buy our own toilet paper, garbage bags, dish washing soap, etc. We did find olive oil, fresh coffee and tea in the cabins. We were not allowed to use the elevator and the piano which were both locked. This was not communicated prior to booking. Again - the apartment is GREAT! The service - I guess managing 62 properties is beyond what they can do professionally at this time.....
