I could not have had a better experience in Rome. Mario is a darling. He is so very warm, helpful, respectful, and interesting to interact with. He went out of his way to make me feel at home at his place and in Rome. He gave excellent suggestions and recommendations for places to see and to dine in Rome and even elsewhere in Italy. If you love art, culture, food, and intellectual conversations, you are staying with the right person. I found a great friend in Mario.
Mario's place was spacious, clean, comfortable, peaceful, and with everything you need. Testaccio is probably the most charming neighborhood in Rome with tons of local activities and the best food options in Rome. My Rome experience would not have been so wonderful if not for this neighborhood. Loved it for every single second and block. I already look forward to coming back to Testaccio and Mario's place.
Mario si è rivelato sin da subito accogliente e disponibile. Si percepisce una certa cortesia e disponibilità sin dai primi scambi di e-mail e dai primi messaggi.
Arrivati a casa siamo stati accolti nel migliore dei modi e ci sono state date tutte le informazioni necessarie per rendere piacevole il nostro soggiorno.
La casa è ubicata in una posizione perfetta, altamente strategica. Nei dintorni c'è tutto, fermata metro, alimentari,tabacchi, bar, farmacia... ma, soprattutto, ad una ventina di minuti a piedi si è già a Trastevere e al circo Massimo.
Per chi viene in macchina c'è anche la possibilità di trovare posteggio grazie alle presenza di parcheggi con strisce bianche.
Abbiamo passato un piacevolissimo soggiorno e se dovessimo tonare a Roma ricontatteremo senz'altro Mario.
Love Mario, a prince, a great dude. I was here for 6 weeks, and it flew. The place is great, Roomy, totally clean, fully equipped, lots of windows/light/air, firm good-sized bed, door that locks - so there’s a sense of privacy, good wifi, great kitchen. A perfect host, Mario left me alone unless I needed/wanted something, and he responded immediately. Funny, nice, quiet, totally respectful and a crazy good cook (last lunch: tagliatelli with a Sicilian version of a Bolognese ragu, look the hell out)! There’s another housemate, meaning three adults sharing a bathroom, so know that, but it was kept spotlessly clean seemingly all the time. Would have liked a new shower curtain, but that’s being fussy. LOVE TESTACCIO!!! Testaccio is the prize. And this apartment is a perfect place to sleep, relax, sip. You can walk along the Tiber anywhere from here, but excellent busses nearby. Great open Testaccio Market three minute walk from home. Cafe Linari across the street. Warm, lovely people. I’d go back in a heartbeat. Two nagging things I gotta mention: walls kind of thin, hear really annoying neighbors, and well into November, there are the legendary mosquitos of Testaccio that just don’t quit. Still, wouldn’t hesitate to rent this place. Also, get a shave downstairs from Massimo. Go to the triangle sandwich place next door. You’ll know where I’m talking about, crowd in front. Get the Pollo cacciatori. Zupa Verduri at Il Cantinone. Ciao!
Thanks Richard! I would just let you know that Mari do not lives here anymore, she found another place here in Testaccio, and that a new shower curtain is waiting for you next time you will come back!
Marios' room was fantastic. Exactly as seen on the photos. The house itself is clean, pleasant and we'll located. I strongly recommend it to anyone.
Thank you Ori!
You're welcome here!
La chambre est grande et propre avec une vue sympathique sur le quartier du Testaccio. Le quartier est très agréable et l'appartement donne directement sur une place avec tout ce qu'il faut. L'appartement est enfin bien desservi par les bus et le métro.
I had a great week in Testaccio: Mario's entire flat had just been cleaned when I arrived, the room is large, with a lovely desk and a spacious wardrobe. Mario kindly accommodated me despite his absence, which says a lot about him as a host. It also means that unfortunately we never even got to meet! Check-in happened via a friend who came over to welcome me and introduce me to the place, Mario had seen to it that everything would run very smoothly.
Testaccio is not touristy at all. There is a small park right in front of the apartment block where locals meet throughout the day, and the quarter has all you need: banks, a post office, pharmacies, a laundrette, supermarkets, corner shops, cafés, restaurants, and – most importantly – a gelateria. The Piramide metro station (near a massive 1st cent. BC fancy Roman funeral pyramid) is less than ten minutes’ walk away, and the Tiber right around the corner. Being there in the summer, I got to enjoy the stalls and restaurants set up along the Tiber embankment not far from Testaccio. On foot, I mostly reached the more central parts of Rome via Trastevere or the Tiber Island, which takes you between twenty or thirty minutes depending on where you're going, but I was more than happy to explore the city that way, especially as I was looking for the less crowded corners of Rome. Interesting spaces like the Centrale Montemartini or the inner Via Appia (Via di Porta San Sebastiano) are perfectly within reach.
I would most definitely rent again. Even if it’s just for the interior design ideas: orderly and clever.
i keep coming back to airbnb because of hosts like mario and apartments like his in testaccio. the location is so central, in the middle of THE foodie neighborhood, and mario is always so helpful when it comes to navigating rome and aspects of italian life. the apartment is spotless with an amazing kitchen, and a great place to use as a base to explore the real, not tourist, rome. highly, highly recommended :)
Had a great couple days stay here while exploring Rome. Testaccio is a really nice area that is relatively close to central but is not too crowded. Mario was a very helpful host.
Ambiente molto confortevole e ospitale , una persona molto simpatica Mario che ti mette a tuo agio, all'interno della casa ci sono tutti servizi che necessita un turista, zona tranquilla e ben servita dai mezzi pubblici ed dalle necessità primarie, come possono essere ristoranti pizzerie bar e super mercati
I was a guest in a Mario's room for a weekend.
The apartment is bright, clean and equipped with every comfort. Mario has been made available in case I ever need. The Testaccio is the Rome I loved more! Thank you Mario! My first experience with Airbnb ... a great start!
