About the property

200m from Colosseum Flat: 2 bedrooms, livingroom, kitchen. 4-6 p, wifi, ac

This charming and cosy apartment is located in the most exclusive Rome historical centre, in a perfect location to visit Rome major touristic sites: the Coliseum, Nerone's Domus Aurea, the Basilica of S. Clemente, the Foro romano.

It is a comfortable 1 floor flat for 4 to 6 people, there is a lovely living room with a double sofa bed, two charming double bedrooms,with 2 single beds each (both can become double)one in the basement, the other one near the livingroom, a very modern bathroom with a comfortable shower and bathtub, a fully equipped kitchen with a table good for 6-8 persons, from there you can go in a fresh and sunny terrace-garden where you can relax in the evening after having walked all day long, or sun bath at lunch time if you decide to go back home for a siesta.....

Air conditioned but frankly speaking there is not much need of it since the rooms of the old roman palaces are fresh in summer and worm in winter, the ceiling is made of original terracotta 'voltine' recently restored and the floor is also in terracotta. It was completely renovated in Feb. 2012. wifi internet 24h free

Restaurants: Luzi and le Naumachie in Via Celimontana, Quattro e quattr'otto and the pizzeria I rioni in Via dei Santi quattro, La taverna dei Quaranta in Via Claudia. All walking distance!

About Alexandra

I started this vacation apartment rental business few years ago just for fun. Now, ten years later, I manage several properties, the majority of which are nearby the heart of Rome. My flats for rent are, with no exception, in pristine conditions. I visit all of them on a regular basis, to ensure my guests will receive the highest level of hospitality and the attention to every single detail. I am proud to say that I always strive to personally answer to all the emails I receive from future and past customers and take every question or request very seriously. I look forward to seeing you here in Rome, the Eternal City.

Alexandra purchased this apartment in 2012

Lovely flat, perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great location, very close to the Colosseum and Roman Forum. Also very easy travel connections via bus, tram or underground train. Lots of great (and not expensive!) restaurants nearby - try the lasagne at Trattoria Luzzi or pizza from Li Rioni either less than 50m from the front door and very reasonably priced. Also the fruit stall right outside the front door (every day apart from Sunday) is a great place to buy fruit & vegetables if you’re eating in.

We loved our visit to Rome - my first time but my wife’s third. We’ll definitely be back!

Apart from the usual attractions (Colosseum, Roman Forum, Bocca di Verita, etc., all of which were overrun with tourists) a particular highlight was Ostia Antica, which is an easy train ride away (€1.50/adult, kids travel free) and was much less crowded and not too expensive. Also walking along part of the Appian Way near the catacombs was amazing and not far out of the centre of Rome.

Overall, a great location and very comfortable apartment that is perfect for any family.

Perfect location!!

  • 5 of 5

Spent 5 nights here for my Husbands 30th birthday and it was really easy to get around the city. The place is right by the colosseum. The metro is also right there. Plenty of places to eat which are right out the door. There’s also a 24 hr grocery store right there too. Very convenient. The place was very nice and clean. Alexandra was great. She arrange for a pick up for us at the airport and when we got there gave us lots of tips for what was around the place and how to get around. She was very helpful. This place also has a little patio which was nice because my parents came and they smoke. If your not sure where to stay I would recommend this place for sure!

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Family of six stayed here on our first trip to Rome. Location is off the main roads. Very quiet, even with disposal truck coming by in the early morning. Very close to grocery store, restaurants, metro, and bus lines. The flat is small (two bedrooms and a sitting room with sofa bed), and with four kids ages: 7, 9, 11 and 12, it was tight but ultimately fine for us. We cooked every day in the mornings and a few times at night. It was the perfect place for us during our first stay in Rome.

Excellent location for us. Clean, comfortable and easy place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

The fresh fruit, vegetable, fish and flower stalls steps outside the door a great convenience. The pharmacy and a grocery store within two blocks also good to have available if needed. Quiet location. Taxi and bus stops about three blocks away at the face of the Colosseum you can see from the doorway just down the street. Easy walk past too many cafe's and shops to count. We underestimated the time you would need to tour the Colosseum and the Forum entrance that is almost adjacent to it. Entry fee gets you into both locations.Lots of walking but we could have easily spent three days leisurely strolling and seeing all those two sites alone had to offer so close by. We took taxi's to do the Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps and the Vatican not too far away. We choose not to cook meals but you certainly could if you wanted to. We choose pastries and fruit for breakfasts and were out and about from early morning.

We absolutely loved this apartment! It was bright, clean and the location was perfect for us.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is just a few short blocks from the Colosseum, which made it very convenient for sightseeing in the area. You can actually see the Colosseum from the front door! The metro is also very close so we were able to get around the city very easily. The market down the street was a fantastic resource for fresh foods of all kinds (we also highly recommend the Pocket Coffee... it’s very addictive) and the Gelateria from Constanta around the corner was our absolute favorite (and we tried a lot).

The beds were very comfortable with memory foam mattresses and a variety of pillows to suit all of our needs. The kitchen was stocked with all the essentials for making a good meal and the outdoor space was very nice to have.

Overall this was a great experience for us and the apartment was a safe place to call our home in Rome. We would highly recommend it.

Perfect place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

Just returned did not want to leave. The flat was excellent, beds so good, a tea pot was all that was missing. We cooked all meals except the last night, a great flower and fruit and vegetables stall at the door😁.Trams, buses and taxis at the road end, also the colloseum right there, magic place. Will certainly be back.

The metro station Colosseo is 200 m from the apartment, taxi and bus station less than 100 m. But you can avoid taking pubblic transport and walk all day long....

Restaurants like Luzi, pizzerie le Naumachie or I Rioni are rownd the corner in via Celimontana, special also the roman food of the Taverna dei Quaranta in Via Claudia with pergola and view of the Colosseo.The Bar antiluzi just in front of the apartment offers "cappuccino and cornetto" in the sun in small tables along the street, you cannot miss it!

Shopping in the street and nearby: Italian fashion, food, handicraft.
