In the main square of testaccio at the 4th floor overview the park the apartment is composed by a wide living room, a fully equipped kitchen (gas stove with 4 fires and oven) with dining area and a balcony, a large romantic double bedroom, a second room with a comfortable french sofa bed and is own balcony. One bathroom with a marble shower/ bath tub.
The apartment is supercomfy and has a wonderful light.
In the morning the kithchen and dining area are very bright wile in the afternoon the rooms are sunny.
An aperitif on the llittle balcony at sunset is so special!
Testaccio is a very old quarter of Rome with an old fashion atmosphere but really authentic and absolutely not touristy!
most of the people living in testaccio are originally from the quarter! It is also very famous for restaurants, 3 great roman trattoria (Perilli, Felice, bucatino) are 3 minutes away from the flat and the best pizza in Rome (Remo) is just on the square!
On the square you also have a supermarket, a bank, a pharmacy, the best bakery, a local bar with table outside on the park.
with a 5/10 minutes walk you can reach the stole market where you can bay fresh fruit and vegetable fish meet ham and cheese!
Testaccio is also very well connected with the public transportation. from and to the airport you just take a train to Ostiense and a 5 min tram to the apartment. On via marmorata you also have bus and tram connections to all the site seen of Rome. And metro Piramide is a few minutes walk.
Amyway the apartment is only 600 mt to the circus maximus so if you like to walk you can still reach most of the site walking!
It is also very well connected to Ostia (our nearest beach) with the train living from Piramide.
I love my apartment because is a beautiful bright luxury and relaxing place in a worm an traditional neighborhood!
We went on a 7 day trip to Rome and looking for a place to stay I found the apartment of Karen on airbnb. I wanted a place to feel at home and that is just what happend. From the first moment I came in I felt at home. Overall a very, very good place to stay. I loved the look of the interior. A artistic look. Nice lamps and paintings. Nice bathroom mirror. A greet big sleeping room and another sleeping room with a small balcony. A lot of space. Good dining table. Good place to sit and a satelite tv. The beds are ok. Kitchen small but no problem. Every thing you need is in the kitchen. When you ask something to Karen see wil respond immediatly. We ate most of the time in the restaurants wich are very good. A realy good italian pizza restaurant at one corner and a icecream shop at the other corner. Different restaurants just a walk away. A supermarket really close. A very, very good italian shop (Volpetti; see tripadviser) on the Via Marmorata. Outstanding balsamico and olive oil. Connections to the city are close. Bus 23 to Vatican and bus 75 to colloseum and center of the town. I would definitly stay again in Karens apartment.
We had a lovely stay in Karen's cosy and roomy apartment. Karen was a great host and the flat is situated close to the amazing Travastere. Every thing was as pictured. The wifi was weak and the kitchen doesn't invite to big cooking, but other than that, we were very pleased by everything about our stay.
I can definitely recommend staying here!
The apartment is very nice, a big roman space. You feel at home as soon as your suitcases are in the bedroom.
The neighborhood is quite.
We really enjoyed our stay.
Thank you Karen.
This is a nice apartment large enough and very bright. Located in a calm area. Just note that the wall in the smaller bedroom is quite thin and you might hear your neighbors.
karen was very nice and helped us with all our needs. lovely neigbourhood !!!
Karen is a sweet and a wonderfull host! Easy to deal with and she responds immediatly to the messages etc. The apartment unfortunately is falling apart. Looks nice in the pics, but the real conditioning is far from them. Kitchen is terrible, hardly no utilies to make food, gas is not powerful enough - it takes a lot of time to make even a coffee. Water is coming out of the frigo. The windowds are in bad conditioning, must be really cold during the wintertimes. In the smaller bedroom's wall there is a quite big whole next to the small terrace - even a bird could fly in. The bathroom is old and water running all the time. Air conditioning at least work well! The walls are not as white as in the pics, some part has been painted others not. The place needs serious improvments. 2 of the sleeping pillows were so dirty that I had to buy my own ones, the textiles everywhere are bit dirty and you can smell that there have been smokers. Children park is awsome and the location! Near e-thing, autentihc neigbourhood.
On arrival we did not meet with Karen as scheduled . Totally our fault but she did her best by leaving a note as to where the key was. Appreciated that Karen. The next morning we were unable cook - no gas. Karen did respond immediately and it was fixed the same day. The apartment was a great size but we found it a little (website hidden) never worked for our 6 day stay. Karen kept promising to have it fixed but it never happened. We loved the balconys and the neighborhood and enjoyed the restaurants in the area. Close to metro and sights
