italiano, amo gli states e il calcio
We were looking for a nice and affordable apartment off the beaten path for our trip to Rome. After having looked at the many neighborhoods surrounding the historic center, we focused on Pigneto (ie Pasolini's Accattone) and luckily made what was to be the best choice of our trip, Irene and Marcello's wonderful place. Perfect location in this great residential, lively and authentic neighborhood, not a tourist in sight! (yet...), but just a couple of minutes away in public transport to Termini station. The only negative point I can find is that we did not get the chance to meet Irene & Marcello who were away during our stay, a friendly and interesting couple with whom we felt a special connection just from the emails and cultural interests we shared. The apartment is decorated with a lot of taste, is equipped with everything you could ever need and is surrounded by several nice restaurants and markets frequented by locals. Now feeling nostalgic while looking back at all our vacation pictures, the one that stands out was taken while we were playing scopa and drinking wine on the balcony with the beautiful areal view of Pigneto in the backdrop. We feel privileged to have stayed at Irene and Marcello's place and recommend it to anyone looking for a Roman experience not copied from a travel book.
Marcello & Irene were very friendly, polite and really nice guests. It was a pleasure hosting them and they are welcome back anytime.
Very nice and friendly guests. Wish you the best on your future jouneys.
It was a delight to host Marcello and Irene! They are the epitome of why we do AirBnb. From a hosting standpoint they made everything easy. They were prompt in communication and they were respectful of our home. What made them special was their willingness to engage. They wanted to get to know our city and our culture and were willing to take the "risks" to do so. We had fantastic conversations and shared a delightful meal that will likely lead to lasting relationship. We are excited to visit them!
Marcello and Irene were delightful and charming guests. I would recommend them to any host!
Hosting Marcello and his lovely wife, Irene, was more like having old friends visit and catch up on the past. They are a fiercely passionate couple living life to the fullest and engaging the world in the warmest way. We spent many hours in lively conversation and discovered we have much in common, not only our interest in the arts--drama and photography--but also in our regional Italian background, the area around Naples. I didn't know them before, but include them in my circle of friends now and look forward to seeing them again, whether as a host, here, or as their guest in Italy.
Marcello and Irene were wonderful guests! They were a pleasure to converse with and were so very polite. I would happily welcome them back into my home.
Marcello and Irene were good guests. They were interesting to talk to and we enjoyed their company when we went out to dinner with them. No trouble at all. We recommend them to other airbnb hosts.
Really sweet and kind couple! Considerate and friendly
Very pleasant and obliging couple, enjoyable to deal with, would be glad to ost them again.
Marcello and Irene are absolutely like family! They are appreciative of all the little things. Please treat them well and invite them into your homes, you will be richer for it!
