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

  • 4 of 5

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.

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

You will not regret renting from Paola. The apartment is in a quiet neighbor hood which was so nice to come back too after a day of site seeing and jostling people.

You can walk to major sites or take public transportation that is located close by.

Paola was so helpful and accommodating, she goes the extra mile to make sure your experience is the best it could be.

Très bel appartement proche des sites à visiter

  • 5 of 5

Casa della Robbia est un appartement spacieux et lumineux, calme et confortable. La cuisine est bien équipée en électro ménager, il est très bien entretenu.

Proche des commerces, des restaurants et du marché couvert.

A proximité des transports en commun : bus, métro, taxi

Nous y avons passé un excellent séjour et les propriétaires sont accueillants, disponibles et charmants.

Une semaine de plaisir

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons logé une semaine dans cet appartement lumineux, parfaitement équipé, où se trouve tout ce dont on peut avoir besoin. Il est situé dans un quartier à peine excentré, sans marchand de cartes postales mais avec suffisamment de restaurants pour diner tous les soirs dans une véritable ambiance italienne. On rejoint facilement Trastevere à pieds et le métro, à cinq minutes, vous amène à tous les endroits stratégiques de Rome. Un dernier mot pour dire la gentillesse de Paola, dont l'unique souci est que vous soyez satisfait. C'est donc une offre, à tous égards, exceptionnelle!

We stayed one week in that bright, well-equipped flat in which everything you may need is available. It is located not very far from the centre, with no postcards stands around and close to a few restaurants where you can have dinner in a true Italian atmosphere. Trastevere can easily be reached on foot and the underground which is five minutes walking takes you to all the important sights in Roma. Last but not least, Paola's concern is to make you fully satisfied. So it is an exceptional offer in all respects!

(already sent on sunday, march the 6th)

Owner's Response: Dear Michel, thanks so much for such a positive evaluation. I thank both of you. I'm happy you appreciated Rome, the neighborhood, home and me... I hope to deserve it. It was interesting to me talking with you, I'll take profit from your suggestions to further implement my welcome book including the sites you have visited. All the best to you and to your magic country. Take care! : ) Paola
