Overview

Rome Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath (Sleeps 2-5)

This beautiful apt is located at Santa Maria Liberatrice Square, in the heart of Testaccio. It's just been renovated (March 2010) with refined taste with precious material (Wood, Travertine, etc.) and furnished tastefully.

It's situated on the first floor of a building which dates back to 19th Century. It's composed of (1) an entrance, (2) a well equipped kitchen (pots, pans, a microwave, a dish-washer, a toaster, a fridge, a freezer, gas-stove, an oven, a grill, etc.). A corridor leads to a living room (3) with a comfortable sofa double bed, a writing desk, a TV, a DVD, a stereo CD, a chair bed (very comfortable). (4) A spacious and beautiful bedroom, (5) A bathroom with a wonderful travertine shower. Next to the bathroom there's a small box room with a washing machine. At the end of the passage there's a wardrobe room. Coffee, tea, salt, sugar, vinegar, olive oil, chocolate, soap for dish washer and for the washing machine are provided.

Testaccio Area:: Even if in the heart of Testaccio area, calmness and peace are assured. The apt faces a quite courtyard. Outside the building there's a park with recreational facilities. The charming area of Testaccio is perhaps the last outpost of a nearly disappeared Rome. It's a slice of the city, next to Aventino and the Cocci Mountain, between Tiber bend at Ripa Grande and Piramide Cestia, next to Trastevere Area. It's nearly intact with the same original roman spirit. If you walk to Santa Maria Liberatrice, go around the famous fresh market counters (it is behind the building of the apt), Mattatoio, Campo Testaccio or to Acattolico Cemetery, you realize and breath the popular, human atmosphere.

Transport:: The apt is central, you can walk to the most important places in Rome but it's well connected by buses, trams, Piramide Subway. The subway leads to Coliseum, only 2 stops, to Piazza Navona etc.

Why the Owner Chose Aventino Testaccio: : Testaccio is a little Island where you can find yet the ancient and magical style of Living of true Romans. Close to each important Monument. Here you can have all the different way to visit and enjoy this wonderful City. The Unique Benefits at this Apartment: Year Purchased: 2009 - The apartment has been built with all the things everyone would like to have. I traveled. And I know what I would like to find in an apartment for my holiday. Owner Description/Comments: Kind and Available to contribute your perfect holiday in Rome, with all my advice.

Great stay! Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

The property was as shown on the website. You will have everything you need. The location is great: away from the crowd of central Rome, but close to subway or walking distance to several points ( Trastevere - 20mn; Colisseum 30mn...). Locals' area with good restaurants (for locals. great ambiance), pasterias and pizzaz, supermarkets....

It is great to communicate withCarmela. She is very helpful. Carmela booked us a taxi from airport.

Also a lot of guide books and reading material.

The apartment is comfortable an. Thank you!

A gem in Testaccio

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful, clean, modern, quiet, and very well equipped apartment. It is close to a number of bus routes and the metro to take you anywhere in the city. Carmela was a gracious host providing very helpful information about the area. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there and would highly recommend this property.

Great base in Testaccio

  • 5 of 5

We like to stay out of the heavily tourist areas while still being able to get around easily. This spot in Testaccio easily fulfilled our needs. It is not a particularly beautiful area, but it is a mellow, "authentic" neighborhood with enough attractions to fill a day--and great pizza minutes away.. The apartment is right on a square with a playground for kids, and it's around the corner from another piazza frequented by locals of all ages. There's excellent public transportation from the apartment (busses and the metro). The apartment itself is well-appointed, spotlessly clean, has a comfortable bed (in the main bedroom), and a modern, efficient bathroom. Carmela met us when we arrived and checked in during our visit to be sure everything was going well with us. Realizing that noise issues vary from person to person, we do want to share that the apartment can be noisy at times, particularly when a child in the apartment directly over us ran around--which was quite a lot. However, our overall feeling about this apartment is that it was a good value and added a great deal to our week in Rome.

We throughly enjoyed our stay at David's place.

  • 5 of 5

The property was just as shown on the site. Very well set up, great location, away from the hubbub of central Rome. Locals' area with good "normal" restaurants, pasterias and pizza joints. Carmela was a joy to work with and very helpful, even drove me to her massage place. Lots of guide books and reading material. The apartment was comfortable and a joy to be in for ten days. Thank you!

Live like a local - adendum

  • 4 of 5

My earlier review mentioned a problem with the kitchen. Carmela has generously offered to replace some of the items in the kitchen that were a little well used. I am sure that the next guests will find everything in good condition.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your nice review. I replaced a chopper board , a pan, 2 large wine glasses because there were 3 left and a sala bowl. I'd like to advise my guests to let me know when there's something they desire at once so they can take advange of it. In this case I met you every week and you have never told me anything so I was sure that all was OK but only on the last day I knew that some items had to be replaced. I'm sorry about it and I don't agree with the sentence in your review "you can't dine in the kitchen" only for the few items. Anyway you have been good guests and I hope to meet you again in the future.
