Central Apartment in Testaccio area
|Address||Via Mastro Giorgio, 00153 Roma, Italy|
|Response time||A few hours|
Located in Via Mastro Giorgio in the Testaccio area of Rome, close to such important historic sites as the Circus Maximus and the Bocca della Verità, the apartment lies just a short distance from Piramide underground station (Linea B) and is well served by the city bus service.
Between the 2nd and 3rd centuries BC, Testaccio was a port on the River Tiber, the place in which goods from all over the Roman Empire were landed having been brought up the River Tiber from the sea port of Ostia Antica.
Today Testaccio is an eclectic, rather bohemian area, an area in which the traditional Roman way of life lives side by side with innovation. One of the best examples of this blend is the MACRO Future gallery of contemporary art which is housed within a former meat market.
From Monday to Saturday the main square of the Testaccio area is occupied by a picturesque open air fruit, vegetable, herb and flower market, while the famous Sunday-morning Porta Portese flea market is also held just a short distance from the apartment.
Testaccio is also famous for its nightlife. Indeed some of the most fashionable bars and nightclubs in Rome are located in Via Monte Testaccio, a street which skirts the artificial mound of ancient pottery from which the Testaccio area takes its name. Some of the bars are dug into the ancient pottery hillside and it is possible to see fragments of antique amphorae in their walls.
The apartment is located in an ideal position for visiting tourist attractions by day and enjoying the lively nightlife of Testaccio by night. The trattorias and restaurants of Testaccio are famous for their typical Roman cuisine.
The apartment is located on the first floor of a late 19th century palazzo with a large internal courtyard. The building is served by a concierge.
Cozy and welcoming, the recently restructured apartment is divided into two main areas, both of which are furnished in a practical modern style. The day area is composed of a sitting room with double sofa bed (190 cm x 160 cm) and a kitchenette. The kitchen is fully fitted with microwave oven, fridge, gas hob and all necessary pots, pans, crockery and cutlery. The sitting room has satellite television and a DVD player.
An antechamber divides the day area from the sleeping quarters in such a way as to ensure the privacy of all the guests using the apartment. The bedroom is furnished with a double bed and a large wardrobe. A fifth guest may sleep in single folding bed in the living room.
The bathroom is decorated in shades of white and aqua-green and is fitted with a shower.
The apartment has air conditioning, washing machine, an autonomous heating system and free WI FI Internet access in order to ensure maximum comfort.

the apartment was nice . what was minus was that the drain in the bathroom sink was clogged, drain the same bathroom in the shower was almost clogged. in one bedroom was doorframe broken and loose when we came . Apart from this , we will be happy again .
We were 7 persons staying 5 days in Rome. The apartment was perfect for us, spacious and well equipped. It was very quite with no trafikk noise and the location was perfect, walking distance from many atractions and Bernini metro stadion very close.
Very nice apartment, small but stylish, very well organized and extremely friendly check in person, everything fine!! Very recommendable.
Even Colosseum within walking distance, nice restaurant district round the corner.
Thank you Daniela and staff!
The location of the apartment we thought was good. Adjacent to the big sights (Coloseum etc.), the others are good on foot to reach, yet the apartment is in a quiet neighborhood. We enjoyed the terrace and the view over the rooftops of Rome very. The bar opposite can be good and quick breakfast, also good restaurants it has in close proximity. Especially recommended is the Cafe propaganda.
The apartment corresponds to the tender and it had air conditioning which we were very happy. The check-in and check-out has smoothly functioning as well as the taxi service from and to the airport.
Die Lage der Wohnung empfanden wir als gut. Angrenzend zu den grossen Sehenswürdigkeiten (Coloseum etc.), die anderen sind gut zu Fuss zu erreichen und dennoch liegt die Wohnung in einem ruhigen Quartier. Wir haben die Terasse und die Sicht über die Dächer Roms sehr genossen. An der Bar gegenüber kann man gut und schnell Frühstücken, auch gute Restaurants hat es in nächster Nähe. Speziell zu empfehlen ist das Cafe Propaganda.
Die Wohnung entspricht der Ausschreibung und sie hatte eine Klimaanlage über die wir sehr froh waren. Das Check-In und Check-Out hat reibungslos funktioniert wie auch der Taxiservice vom bzw. zum Flughafen.
Our group of seven family members stayed in this property about two weeks ago. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The apartment was very large and easily accommodated our group. It was very clean, and the wine and cake provided on our arrival were most appreciated. The apartment was only a few blocks from the Termini station and so was an easy walk for us. It was also not very far from Rome's major historic attractions. It is ideal for a large group. I would stay here again in a heartbeat if we were travelling in a large group to Rome.
Staying in Rome great ar. The apartment was great, it was clean, well maintained and in wonderful central location, so we were able to experience Rome well from this location. The transport service was impeccable and the correspondence before the trip was very personal, so we felt always very well looked after. Apartment and I can recommend without reservation providers
Der Aufenthalt in Rom ar toll. Die Wohnung war super, sie war sauber, gepflegt und in wunderbar zentraler Lage, so dass wir Rom von diesem Standort aus gut erleben konnten. Der Transportservice war tadellos und die Korrespondenz vor der Reise war sehr persönlich, so dass wir uns stets ausgesprochen gut betreut fühlten. Wohnung und Anbieter kann ich vorbehaltlos empfehlen
What a great stay!! Fine apartment with beautiful roof terrace with plenty of space, however, we feel that the apartment was just small enough to 9 people. We were 6 girlfriends and it was adequate. There was one large sheet for each double bed and if you are not lovers, this is not good; we had wished that there had been one sheet per person. Booking company, hostess and apartment can be recommended, very good contact all the way from order to arrival / departure. Fine agreement with the pick-up taxi to and from the airport. We could stay there again; just 2 minutes from the Spanish Steps. Thank you for the stay and the experience ..
(not recommended for people with walking difficulties, there are many stairs up to the penthouse - however, elevator to the 3rd floor) ...
Apartment quite satisfactory !! Very well located in a very lively area
One can visit Rome on foot !! Everything is within 20 minutes walk!
We had a service and a first class welcome
Appartement tout a fait satisfaisant !! Très bien situé dans un quartier très animé
On peut visiter Rome à pied !! Tout est à moins de 20 minutes de marches !
Nous avons eu un service et un accueille de première classe
A recommandé !!!
