Located on the ground floor of a historical building on Via Marco Aurelio, just 300 metres from the Colosseum (see map below), we have this cosy garden apartment. It is perfect for 2, but can accomodate up to 4 people. It is a loft-style apartment, with a kitchen, a bathroom with shower, an open space bedroom and sitting area. The sitting area has a double fold out bed couch.
This apartment is designed in a retro vintage style, similar to the other locations of RetRome. Great vintage wall papers make you feel like being in a time machine. The lovely and quiet little garden allows you to relax after a day of overwhelming Rome. A morning breakfast, a glass of wine and a bruschetta or even dinner here makes you feel at home.
- Great location
- The staff here was really great and went above and beyond to accomodate us. I couldn't have asked for people more dedicated to making sure we were happy.
- We were surprised negatively upon arrival. The apartment is shabbier, more run down, and darker than the photos make it appear. And they were doing work on the building right outside the doors that we hadn't been told about in advance that really impacted how the place felt.
We voiced our disappointment to the staff and they really helped. The biggest thing was that they found us a new place to stay among their propoerties (in the same building) and that worked out great. So a big THANK YOU to them, but also just be aware that the photos of the Garden Apartment paint an unrealistic picture of the unit.

The RetRome project was born from a combination of our interest in art and design and our experience in the fields of tourism and hospitality. Interiors are designed by a group of young artists, who collaborate to brilliantly recreate the optimistic and comfy ambience of a 1950's 60's & 70's Rome,without giving up contemporary and comfortable features.
