Giorgio's Testaccio apartment was indeed cosy, clean, and comfy, with a number of welcome amenities, like decent kitchen knives, plenty of good towels, terry cloth robes for two guests, WiFi, and good lighting for people who read a lot. The apartment's location was ideal for me and my husband, as we love the neighborhood and have been visiting friends there for years. From Via Amerigo Vespucci you can easily arrive at and depart from the Ostiense train station, which is particularly convenient because the new, competitively priced train company, Italo, uses this station as one of its stops, and the airport train also stops there. From Ostiense, you can walk to Giorgio's apartment or take a very short cab ride.
Within a block and a-half there is a small supermarket, a very good bar (Alinari) with excellent pastries and gelato, a post office, a bread bakery (Passi), and a bunch of other small shops. The real treasure is the Testaccio Market, where you can buy beautiful fruits and vegetables, bread, etc., and even have lunch and taste wine. The neighborhood also boasts several very good restaurants, including Molì on Via Rubattino and Felice on Via Mastro Giorgio. If you speak Italian, there are also good cinema options nearby. Within walking distance are a branch of the MACRO (Museum of Contemporary Art Roma), which occupies the grounds of the historic stockyards and slaughterhouse that are the explanation for several neighborhood specialty dishes made from the humblest cuts of meat (which is what the workers took home to their families).
Giorgio's place is two rooms plus bathroom. The living/eating/kitchen space is pleasant and includes some personal touches (books, photos, movie posters) that we appreciated more than the often generic or thrown-together spaces we have rented in the past. There are sufficient dishes and cookware for anyone with a bit of kitchen know-how. The bathroom works well, with good water pressure, and the bedroom is sunny with a view that looks out over a recently excavated bit of ruin. The washing machine works well. The living area looks onto a quiet, three-sided courtyard that is filled with birds and song.
This is not a fancy apartment and Testaccio is not an upscale neighborhood. It is a real place, with long-time local residents. If you are looking for modest but pleasant accommodations and a genuine Roman locale, it is ideal for one or two people for a short to medium-length stay.
Giorgio himself is very responsive, upbeat, and personable and is easy to reach by phone or text. His English is excellent. His house cleaner is also a gem! We certainly recommend this place and were happy to stay there.
Il nostro ospite, qui a Roma per un breve soggiorno, ha desiderato pernottare presso l'appartamento di Giorgio! Questa è stata la seconda volta per lui e sua moglie nella quale hanno deciso di pernottare nello stesso luogo! Mi sembra una decisa conferma dell'ottimo parere che i nostri ospiti e noi abbiamo sull'appartamento e sul suo padrone. Grazie ancora e alla prossima.
L'appartamento di Giorgio è veramente molto carino. Il nostro ospite ha trascorso un ottimo soggiorno romano, anche grazie alla posizione della casa, comoda, centrale e vicinissima alla nostra Fondazione. Giorgio, il proprietario di casa, è stato molto disponibile e alla mano. Grazie ancora a lui, e alla prossima.
Hemos pasado unos dias en el apartamento de Giorgio.El apartamento es confortable, amplio y la cocina esta bien equipada. Se hecha de menos la television ( en las fotos en la aplicacion aparece pero luego no esta ). El wifi funciona perfectamente. La calefaccion a nosotros nos parecio insuficiente, incluso al maximo el apartamento resulta frio sobretodo por la epoca que fuimos (diciembre). Al llegar, la persona responsable no era quien nos dijo Giorgio y no tuvimos indicacion ninguna, aunque Giorgio responde rapido a cualquier problema. Se agradaceria una guia de indicaciones sobre supermercados, restaurantes etc... La estacion de tren de Roma Ostiense esta a unos 20 minutos andando del apartamento y el Colosseo esta a unos 40 minutos dando un paseo.
We just returned from Giorgio's apartment in Rome where we spent one month. We could not give Giorgio or his apartment higher reviews. The apartment truly is cosy, clean and comfy and we loved the location. It was close enough to walk to most all the sites, but we felt like we were staying with the locals. We never got to meet Giorgio, but texted and talked with him several times. He made us feel like he was always available and willing to help. We felt like this was the perfect place to stay and would definitely stay here again or recommend it to others. Great apartment, great area, and great host. We loved every minute. Just a side note - the best pizza we had on our vacation was just around the corner from the apartment at a place called Remo's. Thanks to Giorgio for making our time in Rome so wonderful!!!
Giorgio made me feel very welcome, although I never met him (he is overseas), he responded right away to emails and answered all my questions before and during the stay. The place is very very nice. Comfortable, large, clean. There is all the kitchen equipment you need, towels, even bathrobes (nice touch!).
Books to read, etc etc. Balcony to chill out on.
The neighborhood is cool but very quiet, it's just like being a local.
You might want to get the person who meets you with the key to give you a short tour of the things in the place so you don't have to do too much rummaging around his stuff.
EXCELLENT place. I recommend it.
What a wonderful stay we had in "cosy, clean, comfy in Rome center"! After a long day of travel, the apartment was a wonderful place to settle in and relax. The apartment was beautiful, very clean, spacious, well decorated, in a safe neighborhood, close to many of the major tourist sites in Rome... this place is a fantastic value for Rome. Giorgio was also an excellent host: responsive to my many emails and flexible with our check in and duration of stay. I highly recommend Giorgio and this apartment for a couple visiting Rome.
I was very happy at Giorgio's appartment. It was impeccably clean and I found everything I needed. The balcony was a huge advantage: pouring sun and fresh breeze. I adored the area, the people, the shops and the cafes. The environment made me feel like a Roman. I recommend this place to all.
We arrived later than expected but were made to feel very welcome by Giorgio's housekeeper who waited for us with keys. The place was perfect; bright, neat, clean and totally charming. Giorgio was just a call or text away even though he was in CA... very helpful and sweet.
We had a great time at Giorgio's place, definitely one of our favourite stays on Airbnb. The apartment is as described, clean, tastefully decorated and furnished, comfortable, well located, well equipped, everything worked, comfortable bed, crisp and clean sheets and towels provided. Giorgio was quick and easy to communicate with prior to our arrival, and we were received by someone upon arrival as agreed, despite it being rather late in the evening. Everything worked. We enjoyed discovering Rome, including some of the local places recommended by Giorgio (the map is a really nice touch), Testaccio is a nice neighbourhood, with its own local and authentic vibe, easy to walk anywhere in central Rome (20-30 min walk), or there are several buses that leave you right next to the apartment when you're too tired to walk after a long day of sightseeing.
Giorgio was a super nice guest. When I met him I knew straight away that I'm leaving my apartment in good hands. He left my place clean and tidy.
It was a pleasure to meet Giorgio! He is a very decent person and I really hope to see him again some time.
I can only recommend him to other guests!
Giorgio was an excellent guest: very funny and pleasant-natured. he is a very clean and responsible guy. i would love to welcome him again.
Giorgio's flat is very nice, clean and cozy. It is in a very peaceful area in the heat of Rome, well connected and full of nice places to go out (restaurants, clubs..). Enjoy the staying!
Giorgio is a nice guy! I meet him while I was living in Rome in 2011 and we became friends:)
Giorgio's apartment is beautiful—immaculate, comfortable, well-decorated, and new. The location is great; it's in Testaccio, 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. Definitely the perfect place to make your base in Rome! :)
G hosted me for several weeks as sublet in his Rome appartment. It was a great place and time, because he is an accurate, trustworthy, outspoken and very friendly guy with an excellen humor. Expect the best and you won't be disappointed.
Giorgio is a phenomenal host. Making himself very accesible at all times, happy to help and answer any questions you may have regarding to your stay and the local area. His apartment is clean and comfortable and very centrally located.
Giorgio is smart, funny, and a genuinely excellent human being. He'd be an excellent host for any would-be visitors to Rome.
I met Giorgio through mutual friends when traveling in Italy. I stayed in this apartment for a few weeks and it is amazing! Beautifully set up, and so close to both local hangouts and tourist attractions. I will definitely stay here again next time I am in Rome!
Giorgio is a really kind and polite guy and his apartment is really nice. It isn't far away from all the most important monuments, and you have the change to spend your time in one of the most exciting and typical neighborhood. Plus, he always know what's new in the city nightlife.
He can be your perfect host in Rome.
