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.

Room Tip: Max offers 3 rooms. Our room had a private bathroom but it was across the hall. We had a nice view out our window of the neighborhood. One of the other rooms had an ensuite bath but only a view of an inner courtyard. The room to ask for has a ensuite bath and a balcony with street view.

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.

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.
