"Charming flat"
Nice little hotel with a kind, helpful owner. Good location in a non-touristy area, comfy bed, relatively quiet, individual AC unit. Breakfast is basic (like lots of Italian hotels). Negatives: Wifi wasn't working when we were there and we usually one had enough hot water for one shower at a time.

"A lovely place to stay"
The room was very comfortable, clean, quiet, and had a pretty view. Max was an excellent host who made me feel welcome. He speaks English very well and was very helpful to me as I learned to navigate around Rome. There is an excellent market nearby that is not at all touristy but seemed to be where locals shop for fresh vegetables, seafood, meat, bakery, clothes and assorted things. There are also some very nice cafes around the corner. I loved the neighborhood and it is very close to the bus stop. Max makes a wonderful cup of coffee that he serves with fruit, and pastries in the morning. Thank you Max for your very kind hospitality.

My wife and I stayed at Testacccio da Max for 4 nights and we could not have been more pleased with our choice. Max is very friendly and the apartment is well kept. We could come and go as we pleased, and this allowed us to come back for a rest in the afternoon. It is on the 4th floor but there is a lift. Breakfast is served in Max's small kitchen. The building is situated a little to the South of the city but has excellent transport links and is very close to the river. We would not hesitate to recommend this quirky but lovely B&B to our friends.

Our stay at Bed & Breakfast A Testaccio da Max was very pleasant. Our host Max was very helpful and informative and we will not hesitate to return to the B&B next time we choose to make a trip to Roma. We spent 5 days at the B&B and had the opportunity to explore various restaurants at Testaccio with positive impressions.

"a buss ride from centre of old Rome"
A clean B&B . 'Max' met us soon as we arrived and gave us the details on transportation ie Bus 170 to Piazza Venezia and from there you are walking distance to all major attractions.Provided continental breakfast every morning at 8.30 AmThe room was cleaned daily and as a treat left us some fresh fruit. The room is fair sized with a private bathroom and the air condition worked great as we had some hot days.Although there is nor small refrigerator in the room 'Max' allowed us to use the one in the kitchen that he used to make us coffee in the morning.The B&B is a converted three bedroom fourth floor condo . Two room have in the room private bathroom and one room has the bathroom out in the hallway

"Lievä pettymys"
Huoneet olivat perussiistejä, mutta pölyisiä. Omistaja oli ystävällinen ja avulias. Varauksessamme oli mainittu ilmainen wifi (ei ollut toiminnassa) ja keittiö (oli lukkojen takana). Kyseinen b&b oli lievä pettymys aikaisempiin arvosteluihin nähden. Sijainti tosin oli loistava, rauhallinen ja mielenkiintoinen alue, jossa liikenneyhteydet pelasivat.

"Fin B&B i den äkta Testaccio"
Underbart område, nära till allt och med bra bussförbindelser. Små restauranger och barer runtomkring framförallt Renatos alldeles bredvid B&Bs ingång. A testaccio da Max består av 3 rum i en lgh på fjäde våning. Rummen är rena, med bekväma sängar och garderob, Max, värden, fixar din frukost med kaffe, juice, mackor, flingor serverat i ett litet mysigt kök. Max är mycket hjälpsam och beredd att hjlpa med råd, tips, info etc. Han pratar bra engelska. Man ser inte många turister i denna underbara del av Rom.

Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Zuverlässiger und freundlicher Service auf englisch. Saubere Zimmer. Für italienische Verhältnisse gutes Frühstück. Zentrale und ruhige Lage in Tibernähe mitten in einem italinischen Viertel ohne Touristen. Gute einfache Restaurants in unmittelbarer Nähe. Alles ist zu Fuß gut zu erreichen (Collosseo 20 min., Innenstadt 20 min., Vatikan mit dem Bus in 20 min., Trastevere direkt gegenüber auf der anderen Tiberseite). Gute Anbindung an die Regionalbahn - 15 min. Fußweg, 4 Bussstationen zur Station Ostiense. Wir würden jederzeit wieder kommen.

Una estancia muy satisfactoria, Max es un anfitrión estupendo que te da muchísimas ideas de cómo moverte por Roma. El precio, teniendo en cuenta la ubicación del B&B y los disparatados precios del alojamiento en Roma, es bastante bueno. El único problema que le vimos es que NO hay wi-fi, cuando en el anuncio pone que sí la hay. Tienes que bajarte al portal para poder tener un rato de Internet gratis. Por lo demás, una estancia muy agradable, un sitio amplio, cómo y limpio y con una muy buena relación calidad/precio. Arrivederci!

Consiglio il B&B da Max per la grande simpatia e disponibilità del gestore Massimiliano, sempre pronto a dare utili consigli. Il B&B è in un quartiere strategico per visitare il centro di Roma anche partendo a piedi e nello stesso tempo è un quartiere molto tranquillo. Lo consiglio vivamente

"We love Max"
03/12/14 Montie D Siegen, Germany
Max went out of his way to make sure that our first stay in Rome was wonderful. Away, but not too far, from the tourist craziness, we got to drink in a litlle of Roman everyday life in the Testaccio neighborhood. The clean and spacious room had a bathroom, and a balcony from which we could see the streets come alive every morning. Nearby the bridge across the river took us into the maze-like Trestavere neighborhood which held happy surprises around every corner. A 20-minute stroll along the river got us to the Circus Maximus and the beginning of the tourist areas - there is also a nearby bus stop if don't care for the scenic walk. But the best thing about the B&B was Max himself. Thank you, fine sir!

Maximiliano is a friendly host, that prepares you a nice breakfast while answers to all the questions that a half-tourist has about rome and the neighbourhood. the B&B is nice, the room is confortable, the bathroom had a large window, everything was clean. the B&B is very well located, at testaccio, near the river, public transportations and sta. maria de la libertrice, one of the most nice squares in rome (with a theatre, a library/bar, ice-creams, a nice garden and people all day long.

Testaccio da Max has everything you need to visit Rome. It is located in a charming neighbor-hood near the river Tiber. Bus stops and metro are located in convenient distance. Massimiliano, the owner is very good guiding, answering questions, making breakfast. Room has its own bathroom and is equipped with everything we need. I would recommend this B&B 

We stayed 3 nights at the B&B of Max and we will certainly return. Testaccio is very quiet while being close to the center of Rome (15 minutes walk to the Colisée). Large room, very comfortable bed, very clean. Max is very welcoming and great coffee in the morning!

"Good place to stay"
10/14/12 nani54 Tillsonburg, Canada
This B & B is in the heart of work class Rome. Our room was spacious, clean and quiet. We had a small, private bathroom but it wasn't ensuite- a bit of an inconvenience, but not too bad. The other 2 rooms offered did have ensuite bathrooms so you need to specify. Although we enjoyed the area, it was a bit of a trek going to and from the historice area every day. There are buses closeby but they were always very hot and crowded. The metro is a 10-15 minute walk away so we felt the hotel was remote enough that we didn't go back to the hotel midday as we would have liked. Max is very friendly and helpful with information and answering any questions you may have about the city. He provides a sufficient breakfast with fresh fruit, packaged pastries, juice and hot beverages. He asked us if we would like anything additional and brought in salami at our request. The price is really the selling point here. Max offers a comfortable refuge in a chaotic city for a good price, but a bit out of way.

"We felt very welcome in Rome because of Max and his B&B!"
06/15/12 Chotee83 Amsterdam, The Netherlands
From 9-13th of june we stayed at A Testaccio da Max. We had a very good time in Rome and also at this B&B. Max contacted us the week before we would go to Rome and sent us some information. He also texted us before we took our plane and gave us advice about the easiest way to travel to his place. We found this was very helpful! Max has 3 rooms which are of a good size and very clean. Two of them have a bathroom inside. We had the room with the bathroom just outside of the room, but this was not a problem at all. In the small kitchen breakfast was served every morning. The breakfast is a bit sweet for us dutch people but it was nice with good coffee and cakes and yoghurt. He asked us if we wanted anything special so you can ask for something you like which i think is very nice. You can also choose at what time you want your breakfast. He also is willing to answer all the questions you might have about Rome and comes up with suggestions what places you might wanna visit. The B&B is not realy in the centre of Rome. Its in the neighborhood Testaccio near Travastreve. You can take bus 170 to Piazza Venezia. The bus stop is just around the corner of the B&B! By foot it will take about 15/20 minutes to reach Piazza Venezia. So this is not that far away but still the location for some people might be a little too far away from the city centre. For us this was not a problem so I would highly recommend this lovely place!! Even at night walking to the B&B was not bad we felt very safe. You can just follow the river so you wont get lost :) I would recommend NOT to use the metro to get to this B&B at night though. The closest stop is Paramide which is not very close and I did not feel too comfortable in that area. I even felt a bit scared!

My husband and I were on our honeymoon and stayed at the Max B&B. The host, Max, was extremely friendly and helpful. He made our stay all the more comfortable and we wouldn't hesitate to stay again. The room and bathroom were exceptionally clean and breakfast just what we needed. I wish all B&B could be as reliable as this.....definitely 10/10 stay.

I stayed ten days in November 2011 at this place and was thoroughly satisfied. Room in impeccable condition, everything working, extremely clean and the host very reliable. Matrass was good and the hot water coming immediately. And very important: a macchinetta coffee in the morning... Excellent hub to visit Rome, testaccio is a special place for those who do not want to stay surrounded by World Tourism.

"Perfect place to stay in Rome (great price, great location)"
07/08/10 itsafryday Victoria, Canada
This was the first place we stayed in our 6 week trip through Europe... and it was one of the nicest. Max was very personal and made every effort to make sure we were well taken care of. He met us at the door of the B&B, and walked us through our entire stay, and shared his thoughts on best places to see. The breakfast was traditional: sweets, pastries yoghurt, juice and coffee. Max had sandwiches on two of the mornings as well. The location is outside of the main tourist part, but it's perfect if you have a few days. The surrounding area of Testaccio is really cool to explore if you want to get to know the non-touristy Rome. We went for dinner here 3 of the 4 nights, simply because we liked it. The Pyramid and graveyards in the area are although well worth a visit. We caught a cab to the Vatican and were there in 8 mins... but mostly walked and bussed to all the other sites. You can't beat this place for the price! It was difficult to find with just the address, but if we would have taken the google map with us it would have been much easier.

"Good location, good breakfast, good rooms - who needs more?"
06/29/10 heiko_wippitsch Stuttgart
My wife and me stayed for 10 days in June 2010 at the Bed & Breakfast „A Testaccio da Max“ and it was the best choice we could do. The B&B is located near the center of Rome, with a bus stop around the corner (cheap bus connections every 10 minutes all day!) and even within walking distance to Piazza Venezia and all the great monuments (20 minutes to walk). The pension has three rooms on the 4th floor of a typical and clean Roman house. Room „Giulia“ is the biggest room, with a balcony and view to the street and some old ruins. It is furnished very tasteful, and it has air-condition and new noise-reduction windows like the other rooms, too. Room „Livia“ is next door and smaller, and it has it’s private bathroom outside in the lobby. Room „Massimo“ looks to the quiet courtyard. Max is a very good host and will help you with every question you might have to ask. His English is good, and every morning you’ll get a really splendid breakfast with Italian coffee, juice and yoghurt (even at your own choice), sandwichs with ham or jam (at your coice), delicious cakes – he changes the menue every day a little. We did enjoy our stay very much and if you are looking for a fine place to stay near the center of that pitturesque city, this B&B is really one of the best places you can find.
