The apartment is cute and the area is nice. Fabio is really helpful. There were 2 dislikes though. First the apartment was not clean (dog hairs), this was shared with Fabio and will be taken care of next time. Secondly during my stay the electricity was shut down due to unpaid bills of the owner. Fabio however paid for a hotel as a replacement.
Fabio's apartment is a great option for staying in Rome. Although Testaccio is not in the centre of Rome, the apartment is very close to several different types of transport, including the metro, local trains, buses and trams. It is also very handy for visiting Ostia Antica and the Via Appia. The apartment itself was very clean and comfortable. The kitchen is perfect for cooking and the dishwasher makes cleaning up easy. The only small complaint we had was that the neighbours were a bit noisy - but this only happened a couple of times, so wasn't a major issue. Testaccio was a fairly quiet neighbourhood with local supermarkets and other services very close by. It is also possible to walk from there across the river to Trastevere, which we did several times. Fabio himself is a really nice guy and very helpful. There were some problems with communication about check-out, but in the end everything worked out perfectly. I would definitely recommend this place as a good option when staying in Rome.
Awesome! Fabio was an amazing and gracious host. The apartment was very clean and felt very safe. The apartment has everything you need. The full kitchen with refrigerator/freezer and a washer inside the apartment to wash our clothes was great. The location was very convenient, only a 5 minute walk to the train and the metro. Fabio was fantastic! Our flight was late and he waited on us to arrive and helped us with directions and transportation as well as having brochures and info about the area ready for us. During our stay the key to the building (there are 3 locked doors...very safe) broke and fabio was there within 15 minutes to give us a replacement. He was available for.anything we needed! The wifi also worked great . I definitely recommend this apartment as well its wonderful host!
Great apartment in a good location. You can walk to the center for 30 min, it’s pleasant walking along Tiber or directly through Aventinus. Clean, comfortable and spacious. Fabio is very friendly and accuracy host. It was the perfect place for me. I would definitely come back to Fabio’s loft when I next visit Rome.
We loved Fabio's apartment. The split level feels very spacious and is very cool. Everything was super clean and everything worked very well. The shower was a bit tight fitting but we managed. One night we came back from being out in Montse Testaccio and couldn't figure out how to unlock the door to the unit (you must pull while turning the key). Fabio came over at 3 AM to rescue us. Such a friendly guy. We also had a VERY early departure (6 AM) flight and Fabio was able to come by for a 4 AM check-out and helped us arrange a taxi. You won't find a better host.
Stayed at Fabio's apartment about two weeks and I could not recommend this place more. Fabio was a fantastic host and so helpful about how to get to his apartment from the airport and also places to go in Rome. The apartment itself was perfect for our needs, as we tended to be out quite a lot. Very clean and tidy, bed was comfortable and everything was in working order when we arrived. Would definitely come back here when I next visit Rome.
We decided in May to go on a vacation in Europe, and to use Airbnb when we could. When we reached Rome, we found Fabio's place which turned out to be awesome.
It has a great wireless internet connection, well designed interior, is clean, and while the neighborhood isn't as good as other places downtown, it's not too far from public transportation.
Would stay there again!
Affidabile, preciso e sopratutto divertente! :)
Appartamento molto bello e comodo, vicino ai maggiori collegamenti dove si raggiunge con estrema facilità il centro di Roma.
