A lovely apartment with great character and charm in a nice area

  • 5 of 5

This was the best experience we've ever had. Aldo is a most gracious host. He went out of his way to make our stay fantastic. Exceptional tour guide, lots of resources available to get the best experiences from the beautiful city of Rome. Location is great, close to bus, train, subway and walking distance of lots of sites yet quiet and restful. Hope to come back again sometime. Loved it!

The best part of the apartment was the kind and he

  • 4 of 5

This lovely apartment is decorated with repurposed furniture from a church rectory and has wonderful light. The bed is comfortable, storage ample and the bathroom very efficient. The kitchen though cramped is serviceable. But besides Aldo the other great aspect is the location within easy walking to the main historical sites and Trastevere. 5 minutes to the Metro, it couldn’t be more convenient.

Bonne adresse pour un séjour sur Rome

  • 5 of 5

Le propriétaire Aldo est très accueillant et professionnel avec à l'arrivée un petit topo d'1/2 heure sur les différents quartiers de Rome et les visites ou réjouissances à y faire. L'appartement est très bien situé à 5 min du métro, 1 station du circus maximus et 2 du colisée. Perdu dans une petite rue tranquille, il est vraiment agréable et idéal comme pied à terre pour 4 personnes. Merci encore Aldo pour l'accueil et les bonnes adresses! On reviendra sans hésiter sur Rome!

Casa Caracalla for 1.5 Months, we'll come back!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Casa Caracalla, hosted by Aldo for one and a half months in February and March, 2017. In summary, we'd recommend this place wholeheartedly to any couples or group of travellers looking for a place with a character, easily accessible but also located perfectly to be in a very local neighbourhood. Baths of Caracalla, Non-catholic cemetery, Testaccio, Circo Massimo, and many other places are easily reachable by walking.

Aldo is a great host that really made himself available fully from the first moment of contact to the last minute. He was super-fast in answering all our questions before renting the place and throughout our stay.

The place itself has an ambience that is hard to describe: with high ceilings, the balcony, the old wooden doors and furniture, the paintings. I can easily say that it was one of the most special vacation houses we ever rented. We really love this place! we actually were so lucky that we got married during our stay in this house, so it will always be in our best memories to be a part of this experience.

Thank you Aldo, for a wonderful experience and your friendly presence.
