Amo viaggiare e amo la mia città che spero di poter condividere con voi! A presto!
I had the pleasure to stay at Alessandro's place for two weeks, from September 22nd to October 6th and for sure would love to repeat the experience! The apartment is even more beautiful than in the pictures and everything and more than I needed and expected was there. It was not just the bottle of wine and the biscuits that Alessandro offered at my arrival; more than that there were even eggs, milk and orange juice in the refrigerator, among so many other nice details! It's cozy, clean, comfortable and located in a real Roman neighborhood, plenty of interesting places, restaurants and stores. Public transportation by bus or by the metro is really easy and offers the possibility to go everywhere. Alessandro and his wife were so kind and supportive. I strongly recommend this place if you want to find your home in Rome. For sure, without any doubt, a 100% positive experience!
Our stay in Rome for 10 days was amazing in Alessandro's place! The flat is exactly as shown on the pictures and very clean. The bedroom is big, the bed is large and very comfortable, we had space in the wardrobe for our clothes.
Every equipment worked perfectly: the dishwasher, the machine machine, the coffee maker, the internet and most of all, the air conditioning. It was 37° outside so hopefully we could switch it on in the evening to make to air fresher!
Alessandro was very helpful with the indications to come from the airport. He explained us how all the equipment worked, let us guidebooks and addresses in the area. Testaccio is a really cool area to live for a few days, it is a typical Italian district where you can go outside in the evening to have an icecream or a pizza along with families and neighbours. Trastevere is a very lively zone, 10 minutes walk for the flat, we made most of the visits to the city center by foot. We also used the metro Piramide (10min) to get to some places and to the sea (30min from the station, every 15min).
We really had a wonderful time in Rome!! Thank you Alessandro!
My husband and I have just spent a wonderful month at Alessandro's apartment. We were extremely happy with the service we were given and the apartment met all our expectations.
You should definitely consider staying here if you want a fully functional kitchen to do all your own cooking, a wonderfully big bedroom area with plenty of storage space, a good sized dining and lounge area to relax in, and a fabulous location in the heart of foodie heaven. There is everything you want at your doorstep and the metro is an easy 10 minute walk. We enjoyed being able to go to the market each morning for all our fresh produce.
We loved coffee at Linari's and the locals are extremely friendly. Also try Pizzeria da Remo for fantastic pizza and L'oasi della Birra for aperativo.
Thank you Alessandro, we had a fantastic month in rome and hope to be back again soon.
The apartment was so lovely that we were sorry to leave it! Comfortable, wonderfully located, and with hospitality of sweets and wine to welcome us, we found this a great way to explore Rome through Testaccio. The apartment, in the ground floor of an 1884 Carlo Tonelli building is book-lined, its walls covered with lovely artwork, and a comfortable kitchen had all the comforts of home down to an espresso machine, modern TV with DVD player/radio, and washer. Right out the buildings front door is a bakery and food shops while within a 3 minute radius are some of the most famous authentic Roman trattorias serving the fifth quarter cuts of meat for which this former meatpacking area is famous. The bus is only two blocks away. Thank you, Alessandro, for helping to make our stay so wonderful!
We stayed one month at Alessandro's place and everything was fine. Alessandro is a very nice person and a great hoste, He was ready to make everything confortable for us (bottle of wine and italian "dolci"when we arrived !). About the apartment as it is on the ground floor when the sun doesn't shine it's pretty dark inside but it was winter time so I guess the light is different in summer. It is very well located in a quiet neighborhood, with lots of supermarkets and restaurants. We never took the subway, everything is reachable by walk. Thank you Alessandro!
This is another AirBnB winner! The apartment was a wonderful retreat from the chaotic streets of Rome. The hosts made sure that check in and check out went smoothly. Everything in the apartment (internet, dishwasher, coffee maker, etc.) worked perfectly.
Concerning the privacy of the space: We had two adults in the master bedroom and one in the loft. We couldn't see into each other's sleeping spaces at all, so they were quite visually private. We could hear each other from time to time because of the nature of the doors, but otherwise the apartment was quieter than one would expect in Rome.
This is a wonderful apartment in a special neighborhood. I recommend it highly.
We found Allessandro to be a wonderful host and the apartment was excellent. Just far enough away from the "traditional" options to be able to really experience Roma culture, but close enough to the center to easily get to within a few minutes.
So instead of staying with all the young and loud tourists in Trastavere, this was an excellent choice.
A block away is a bus stop connecting you to surface transport and one stop away from the metro.
There are several markets in the neighbourhood as well as a place for an evening galati.
The apartment has everything you need. It's very clean and cosy. We felt completely safe even when out at the local park in the late evening enjoying our galati and watching the locals.
I'd recommend this host and location without reservation. We had a delightful time in Rome, in no small part because of our stay here and the positive experience with Alessandro and this apartment.
Great flat, great position, excellent hosts. A little out of central Rome, but close enough for most things and easily accessible by tram and bus. The Testaccio district is fascinating in itself and there is enough to do around there for a few days even without exploring the usual tourist Rome.
Le descriptif fait sur le site est tout à fait conforme à la réalité.
Alessandro nous a accueilli chaleureusement dans son appartement qui est, outre très fonctionnel, décoré et aménagé avec soin et goût.
Le quartier est très agréable, tous les commerces sont à proximité ainsi que de bons petits restaurants conseillés par Alessandro. Autre bon plan : parking gratuit à proximité sur une petite place ... arrêt de bus et tram à 5 mns à pied ... formidable !
Nous vous recommandons Alessandro à 200 %.
Allesandro's place is nothing short of exceptional! The apartment is perfect for 3 even 4 people, close to everything including walking distance to the mouth of truth(aprox5-10mins) and the rest ofRome. so close to the metro and access to all ends of Rome easily and cheaply. He is a lovely honest man who has time to answer any questions, the apartment has everything including aircon and the main room is huge and really romantic for a couple looking for some privacy. The surrounding area of Tesstacio is funky, vibrant and safe with Trestevere across the bridge with awesome markets every Sunday(cheap as chip) , Thank you Guys for having us, will come back in a heart beat!
ospitare Alessandro è stato un piacere, lui e la sua ragazza hanno lasciato la casa in ordine prima di andare via. sarà un piacere poterlo riospitare.
Alessandro was an awesome guest. It's always nice to meet a fellow airbnb host. Hosts are the perfect guests and so was the case with Alessandro. He and his wife were friendly, clean, communicative, easy to work with, and flexible. I highly recommend Alessandro as a guest and wish them continued success in their hosting. I'm sure they are as great a host as they were great guests in my Brooklyn rental.
