About Manuela Gabuti

I am married with 2 kids, i like to travel, when it is possible, I was born and raised in the Testaccio district, and I love this place because it still maintains the popular traditions, where people can hear a familiar environment, even being in a big city.

Manuela Gabuti purchased this apartment in 1969

Why Manuela Gabuti chose Rome

I have always been fascinated to have a place for a holiday where you can feel at home, so in my childhood home I wanted to create a warm family atmosphere just like I would expect to find on a journey and stay with all the comforts.

a beautiful apartment!! 5 stars

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 5 stayed in Manuela's apartment June 22-25, 2017. It was so beautiful and so convenient to everything! We used the car service, and it was perfect. The gentleman was there when we arrived in the Rome airport and took us right away to the apartment. a young girl named Michela was there to greet us at the apartment, she showed us around, and explained everything we needed to know. She did a wonderful job at speaking English too. Manuela left us fruit, wine and crackers too! a very nice touch. The apartment is in perfect shape, very comfortable, great airconditioning, great location. Everything we needed! The kitchen is especially cute! The location of the apartment is perfect because you are so close to many wonderful restaurants, ice cream shops etc. We took the bus into the main part of Rome quite easily. One of the bus stops is right near the apartment. We enjoyed walking around Testaccio too. I would highly recommend this apartment and Manuela is incredibly easy to work with and very responsive with any questions you might have. Thanks again Manuela!

A great base for a memorable Roman holiday is in Testaccio, without the crowds or high prices.

  • 5 of 5

Lovely apartment in quiet, convenient location in Testaccio district. This 2-bedroom apartment was perfect for 2 couples with lots of space, well-equipped kitchen, & washing machine on 3rd floor (with elevator). The building is close to bus/tram stops, many shops, stores & piazzas in the district. Bus/tram stops are a block away to take you to most popular attractions within 10-20 minutes.

Our hosts responded quickly to any questions &, on day when I forgot keys in the apartment, they arranged to leave them with a neighbour for us to retrieve on our return - greatly appreciated. I would highly recommend this location for a stay in Roma.

Perfect place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We were traveling to Rome for the first time from the US with our 5 year old son. The apartment was very clean with everything we needed for the 5 night stay. We loved the area as it felt like a community rather than a tourist destination and we were greeted like family upon our arrival. Our son was very happy to play at the nearby park each afternoon after a morning of sight seeing. We took the buses everywhere around Rome - the bus stop being very close to the apartment and most places were accessible with just one bus. Having access to the elevator was great. There were cafe's, nice restaurants, supermarkets and other shops within a couple of blocks. Make sure you eat at Bucatino's at least once! There were even pharmacies with very helpful English speaking staff for when my son got a cold. I also recommend using the car service from the airport. It makes getting to the apartment after a long flight so easy! Overall if you want to live like a local (even if you don't speak the language) while seeing the sights of Rome, this is the ideal place to stay.

Clean, warm, spacious, well located (close to all attractions, shops and nice local restaurants

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in the flat for 5 days including NY eve. It's a lovely quite, spacious, light, well decorated flat with very hospitable and attentive owners. There were repairs needed in the flat just of a sudden on 31st of Dec and they were able to arrange it on the NY day. Flat is located 20-30 min walk from all main historic attractions and from Trastevere full of nice restaurants. Overall very good impression and recommended to others for the stay.

Warm welcome!

  • 5 of 5

We were greeted at check in by Manuela's friend Paola and Maurizio. They could not have been more helpful and friendly. Gave us plenty of recommendations of things to do, even making us a dinner reservation for our first night of arrival. Using their offer of a private car to take us to the airport went flawlessly. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Great location. Lovely stay

  • 4 of 5

Greeted by the lovely Paola, we were treated with warmth and good service from her. She took us through everything and even introduced us too our neighbour Theresa who spoke very good English.

The location was fabulous. Close to transport and many general shops all around the apartment streets. A lovely park/playground in the street behind so our two year old Lucas was able to play many times and make friends

With local children :-)

Only a few things we didn't like were that we were charged for use of the second bedroom (kindly refunded). It is very unclear and quite strange that is doesn't specify this on the website/ads. The apartment is tiny as it is so hence why we think it was strange... Also, sky tv was not available as promised and the hot water never worked in the kitchen.

All pretty minor things that can be fixed easily. So all in all it was a great accommodation and we felt safe and comfortable during or stay. Wifi worked AMAZINGLY TOO!!

Grazie Manuela!!

Owner's Response: we are happy of your stay. I want to specify the points that have not gone well: 1) I never mentioned SKY on the rental package. there are international channels but not pay TV. 2) the hot water in the kitchen goes on. there is the switch under the sink (it is written on the book of information) 3) 2nd room is not paid, you were asked 20 € for the laundry if you would have used because we had prepared the crib for the 3rd bed and in any case you will have been returned. I'm sorry you mentioned things so unnecessary and solvable. Bye H,L,P

Romano 's Suite is located in the most genuine and lively : Testaccio , full of restaurants, wine bars, restaurants and nightclubs. The Testaccio , Aventine located to the south and on the left bank of the Tiber, is distinguished from other districts of Rome to be able to maintain over time , its original spirit of the people , in contrast to many other areas in the center of Rome that, today, have lost that familiar taste and characteristic of the real Rome. Testaccio is defined as a country within the city.

Due to its urban redevelopment , the neighborhood is easily accessible from the railway station with metro or bus, with stops just 80 meters away. The convenient location and convenient connections and neighbors just 80 meters away , you can reach the Vatican with the bus 23 or 280 , Piazza Navona and the Pantheon, Trevi Fountain with BUS 95 , Colosseum and Villa Borghese with CAN BUS 3 . A 10 -minute walk from Metro Line B Piramide ( 4 stops from Termini) , which allows you to cross Rome from North to South with ease. From the Porta San Paolo station (next to the Piramide Metro ) is the link to Ostia Lido , the first stop and then stop Ostia Antica Ostia Beach, the seafront. The convenience is also going for a walk and get to the Coliseum and Roman Forum , through Tiber until you get to the Circus Maximus , which is 1 km away . For shopping you can reach Via del Corso, with the Bus 170-30-83-716 , in just 10 minutes. Here, in the ateliers and boutiques of Via dei Condotti and Via Borgognona , you can see the heads of the best Italian designers . On Sunday morning there is the colorful market of Portaportese , a 5-minute walk away , with its ' junk ' and much more, certainly one of the most characteristic places of Roma.Tra the many squares in the center of Rome , we recommend spend a morning at the market at Campo De Fiori , typical for staying like old times , and relax in one of the many wineries of this square , or choose your preferred eatery . Nearby in Via dei Giubbonari in Piazza Santa Barbara , you can enjoy typical Roman , cod fillets , you eat on rustic tables , and you'll find just as typical Roman dishes .

The Testaccio neighborhood is packed with local and entertainment venues , which have transformed the nights of the area around Mount Testaccio in a real nightlife Capitoline . The local Roman cuisine are, Felice a Testaccio , Angelina , Bucatino , and pizzerias as Remo and the New World, who have maintained the simplicity of the premises than once.

Easy to reach from the Fiumicino and Ciampino airports , see link :

Fiumicino: http://www.adr.it/pax-fco-autobus

Ciampino: http://www.adr.it/pax-cia-autobus

We can offer the rental with driver service with departures and arrivals from Fiumicino and Ciampino, from 1 to 3 persons € 45.00, each additional person € 5.00

Service to and from the port of Civitavecchia at € 120
