Put the house music on replay and you have Testaccio, an ancient Roman port and former working class neighbourhood where the bass is set to high almost every night of the week. Its collection of discoteche (nightclubs), street parties, and crowded restaurants give it its well-deserved party reputation. During the daytime, Testaccio is more easy listening than club hit, the area is full of locally owned small businesses and has one of the city's larger produce markets.
Located on Piazzale Ostiense, the most distinctive landmark in this area is the Piramid of Caius Cestius, it is his tomb; he died in 12 BC;
This piramid is a spectacular building in white marble stones,;

Imagine if you will a city with a population of a million people when most of the...
I went on a citytrip to Rome with my mom and we looked for a nice and clean hotel. Hotel Re Testa was really clean, the staff was very friendly and it was close to the city centre. I’d definitely go back to this hotel when I’m in Rome again.
Stayed in October, is was around 78%F ( 25.5 C) and the air conditioning was useless.
You cannot adjust the AC in the room. Called front desk they told me to open the window. I have allergies and didn;t want to open the window. It is near Roma Ostience station.
I stayed for 5 days at this hotel. This is a good hotel for first trip to Rome. All I did was see the main attractions in Rome. Left early in the morning and came back in the evening. Breakfast was ok could have had more variety. The hotel was good value for money, clean and staff were friendly and...
I've been there with my boyfriend for one night only.
The breakfast is a buffet on the top floor and it's a quite satisfying one.
The room was clean and the bathroom wasn't so big actually but still ok for that room.
The neighbourhood is really user-friendly. Piramide metro station and Ostiense train station are two steps away from the...
