The heart of ancient Rome, the Colosseum, the Imperial Fora and the Markets of Trajan, the Capitoline hill and its museums.

The Space

I can claim without any doubt 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, WINDOWS ON THE COLOSSEUM is the ideal place for a full immersion in the timeless fascination of the Eternal City. Decorated in a classical style and tastefully furnished WINDOWS ON THE COLOSSEUM 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 (queen size) and a fully furnished kitchen.
All linen is supplied.
If you are going to stay longer than 7 days, the bed and bath linen is changed once a week.
WIFI free of charge.

This is a NO SMOKING apartment, thank you.

Interaction with Guests

Please be aware I live in the same building so always available to support you.

The Neighborhood

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.

Getting around

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.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We stayed in Andrea's apartment for 5 days. Location was fantastic, extremely central and area was lively at night if one didn't want to venture too far in the evenings. The street downstairs has 2 gay friendly bars too. Andrea was very accommodating and communication with him was spot on. The apartment was recently renovated and is very spacious. Thank you Andrea!

  • The apartment was perfect! Right next to the Colosseum and close enough to all the sights to walk. We arrived a little early but Andrea was able to let us drop our bags off at the apartment. I would definitely recommend Andrea and the apartment.

  • We (2 adults and 2 kids) stayed 4 days here. The place was larger than I expected, large living room area, large bed room. Although I didn't meet Andrea because he was out of town on the day I arrived, I didn't have any problem of getting into the room.He noticed me early enough and the other person helped get us in. Andrea was very responsive to my queries through emails (I didn't use phone calls).

    The location was perfect. It's right next to Colosseum. I liked to see it early morning and at night through the window in the room. It's close to a metro station. There were a very small grocery store near the flat for water, snacks. (Later I found Carrefour Express around the corner near Taxi station, but I didn't use it.) The bar downstairs was a little noisy, but it could be because of the World Cup.

    I'd recommend this place to my friends and will stay again when I come back.

  • Andrea was such a great host! He was so gracious to wait for us to arrive at a very late time and show us around the apartment. He was also very helpful in finding places for us to go and see in Rome. The apartment was very clean and comfortable and had a great view of the Colosseum. The bars at the street level below were a bit noisy, but earplugs cut any and all noise with ease.

    When coming to Rome, you should stay with Andrea!

  • Everything was superb! The host was so friendly and informative! The place was exactly what was posted on the airbnb site in an excellent location. It was very clean and well equipped as well. We especially loved the nice sofa in the living room.

  • Andrea est un hôte accueillant et bienveillant. Il a d'ailleurs accepté de garder nos valises même après quitté son appartement pour nous permettre de profiter encore de Rome. L'appartement est très agréable et spacieux. Il bénéfice des équipements nécessaires au confort et nous a permis de nous concocter des bons petits plats à l'italienne! La salle de bain est toutefois petite et un petit conseil pour l'eau chaude de la douche: ne pas hésiter à faire couler l'eau du lavabo en même temps pour ne pas prendre une douche froide! Tout le reste est parfait! Le lit est spacieux et confortable. Nous y avons très bien dormi. Et que dire de la situation de l'appartement, juste à deux pas du Colisée et du centre historique de Rome. Le métro est tout proche, tout comme Carrefour express et une petite supérette. Mais je vous conseille le marché du Testaccio et toutes ses spécialités miam ou plutôt mama mia. Je le recommande. Bon rapport qualité/prix. Grazie Andrea.

  • The location of this apartment is truly second to none. Ideal access to the colleseum and most major landmarks, with the metro a short walk away. Andrea was really helpful in offering recommendations and guidance on transport. He was also accommodating of our last day late flight home by looking after our luggage given the 11:30 checkout time. Slight drawbacks would be the lack of an iron and issues with the hot water coming from the shower. Warnings given that it can be slow to heat as the tank is on the Main Street, but I think this was more a case of just running out altogether by 10am. That aside, this was my 1st experience with airbnb and now I'm a convert - so overall I'd definitely recommend.

  • What a great location, it was a lovely flat with so many great prints of New York that it made us feel right at home. Andrea was a truly considerate and caring host We hated to leave and he was very accommodating in assisting us with our departure. We look forward to staying there again Grazie mille Andrea. All the best Jillian & Connie
