Wonderful area with great apartment!

  • 5 of 5

Paola met us promptly at the apartment and provided extensive details on the apartment, Testaccio, and Rome. The apartment is quiet and well furnished. We loved the market, restaurants and bars. You can walk to the majority of the Roman sites. Thank you Paola for your hospitality!

Very clean and great location.

  • 5 of 5

Paola was a great a host and was very helpful and informative. The apartment had all the necessities needed. The only missfoutine was elevator from 4th floor did not operate on the day we left. Had to carry suitcases from 4 floor down.

Owner's Response: First of all I want to thank you for such a nice and kind appreciation. In regard to the elevator: if I have well understood what you told me it was not working the night BEFORE your departure, as you may remind the day of departure we were altogheter and the elevator was working; probably in the harry you have forgotten that my husband helped you taking out the luggages. I'm sorry that for 1 night over 20 nights of stay, someone has left the door open and tthe elevator was occasionally not working, as you surely understand this not my fault. Anyway: the apartment is located at the second not the 4th floor! I hope to have you again as my dear guests having appreciated your kindness and politness. Warm regards, Paola & Massimo

Paola er en omsorgsfuld vært, kvarteret meget autentisk, og lejligheden er velindrettet.

Beliggenheden giver fine muligheder for at opsøge såvel det mere turistede som det mere landlige.

Testaccio Gem

  • 5 of 5

We are so glad we rented an apartment, no less in the food-tour suburb of Testaccio. From the warmest of welcomes, Paola greeted us at the front of the apartment building and gave us all the tips and instructions on how to use everything in the apartment, to the final goodbye espresso at Pasticeria Barberini, we had the absolute best time in Rome. What's great about the apartment is the location and proximity to all things that matter to us - great food, super clean and well equipped apartment, an ever helpful host and a compendium of information about what to see in Rome, where to eat, how to get tickets to museums. We had a small issue with an ATM on the day we were leaving and Paola helped tremendously to translate and resolve the issue with the bank in the morning. If you love food, and really want to get a sense of the everyday life in Rome surrounded by great trattorias and the Testaccio Market, look no further than this lovely apartment.

Beautiful, well maintained, well managed studio apartment in great location.

  • 5 of 5

This lovely studio is perfect for tourists and FAO staff alike (10 minute walk to the office). Very quiet and well located near good restaurants, cafe, deli and public transportation. Paola is very quick to respond to even the most minor of queries. I will stay here again when I can.

Nice and cozy

My wife and I spent 4 nights in this nice and cozy apartment.

Lots of information was provided, so we didn‘t have to search the map too much.

Very clean, well maintained, close to Metro station,

We would go back there if the chance arise.
