About this listing
The heart of ancient Rome, the Colosseum, the Imperial Fora and the Markets of Trajan, the Capitoline hill and its museums.
I can claim without any doubts this is absolutely one of the first 100 closest apartments to the Colosseum at a distance of less than 100 meters (328 feet)!
This Rome apartment is located in the heart of the beautiful and historic city of Rome, THE GLADIATORS' HOUSE is the ideal place for a full immersion in the timeless fascination of the Eternal City. Decorated in a classical style and tastefully furnished THE GLADIATORS' HOUSE apartment would be ideal for both business and pleasure alike.
This beautiful apartment, inside a 5 floors building of the early '900, finely and preciously restored, is located in one of the most ancient roman neighbourhood, the Celio Hill.
Via Ostilia is a quiet narrow and oneway road, with parking restrictions, perfect for tourists looking for a peaceful and easy vacation. The property is located just a very few steps far from the Roman Forum and the Colosseum, in a charming area, with lots of peculiar stores, candlelight restaurants and friendly pubs.
The very close metro (Colosseum), the several buses, as well as taxi station (around the corner), the rent-a-bike and the rent-a-motorbike, allow its guests to move around Rome easily and fast.
The apartment is on a very bright fourth floor with elevator, and is suitable for maximum 4 people.
Laundry, internet cafe', supermarket, pharmacy, money exchange, international phone calls point, ATM machine, bank... just downstairs!!!
From the elegant doorway hall you get the elevator to the apartment. A bedroom with a queen size bed, living room with TV and the sofa turnable in a bed for two people and a fully furnished kitchen.

Interaction with Guests
Please be aware I live in the same building so always available to support you.
The area around the Colosseum and the Roman Forum is crammed with archaeological sights, and the visitor is cheek-by-jowl with reminders of the emperors and ancient Rome.
The area is conveniently placed for public transport, with a Metro station right opposite the Colosseum, and is only a short distance from Stazione Termini. It's possible to walk into the Centro Storico or the shopping area of Via del Corso; there are also plenty of buses. Note that the main road past the Colosseum and Forum is very busy, but is pedestrianised on Sundays.

Andrea was a very good host! Andrea gave us great directions and advice a couple of days before our travel date, for me this was perfect as I like to know what I am doing ahead of time. We were given a great welcome with a lovely bottle of wine! The apartment was just as the pictures show, very clean and comfortable ( especially the bed!). The location was perfect, just a two minute walk to the colosseum and from there all buses and trains were available. We used the hop on hop off bus which also had a drop off point at the colosseum. The neighbourhood felt safe, very lively restaurants, pizzeria and bars just out the door. We found that it was still very quiet though! There was a grocery store just around the corner for all the conveniences you will need. As this was our first time using airb&b we were very happy with our decision. Thank you Andrea for a very memorable experience! We will definitely recommend to all at home!
We had a lovely time in Rome and in Andrea's apartment! It was very conveniently located to get to many major attractions and easily accessible to the main train station. Andrea was lovely to communicate with, and very nicely held our bags for us as we had a later train departure. Thank you for the welcome Prosecco Andrea!
Andrea was a fantastic host, he was attentive and his communication was great, he always responded when we had questions and was happy to accommodate our luggage on the day of our check out.
The apartment was fantastic and as described, mere minutes away from the Colosseum and a multitude of shops and restaurants. There were three of us staying in the apartment and there was plenty of room, I would recommend The Gladiator House to anyone.
Andrea was great host. Very hospitable, courteous, and flexible. He greeted us at 1:00 am in person by the elevator door, helped us with our luggage, showed us the apartment, prepared the bed, and even left us a bottle of wine on dinning table to enjoy. We found everything about the apartment as it was in pictures and was explained on the site: Cozy, clean, and very safe apartment, close to all major historical sights, ATM, grocery, public transportation, food, and etc... Highly recommended.
Andrea is such a lovely host, always willing to answer questions. His apartment was great for two people, everything we needed was available and we would stay again for sure!
We loved our stay here! The location was great and easy to find. We got there and there was a bottle of prosecco waiting which we thoroughly enjoyed. It was the perfect jumping off point for our short stay in Rome. Couldn't recommend it enough!
Andrea was a fantastic host. He put in a lot of effort to make sure we were well accommodated during our stay. The apartment exceeded our expectations. It was clean, comfortable and in a great location. I would definitely stay here again. Highly recommended!
