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 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, the COLOSSEUM VIEW is the ideal place for a full immersion in the timeless fascination of the Eternal City. Decorated in a classical style and tastefully funished the COLOSSEUM VIEW 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 built on two levels. In the first level you have the living room with a fire-place, a big crystal table for 6 people, a fully furnished kitchen, TV, one bathroom and the sofa turnable in a bed for two people.
Upstair a queen size bed, another bathroom with tub and shower and a dressing room.
If you are going to stay longer than 7 days, the bed and bath linen is changed once a week.
Daily cleaning service is available from Monday to Saturday.
Satellite TV and WIFI free of charge.
When you will wake up in my apartment the first things you will see are the Ludus Magnus and the Colosseum!!!

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.
Just one block away from the University of Notre Dame du Lac.

We only stayed at Andrea's apartment for two nights, but we immediately felt at home! Andrea is a great guy and even though our flight was delayed and we arrived late at night, he was kind enough to wait for us. The apartment is nicely decorated, with modern furniture, even better than the photos. The location is perfect, right next to the Colosseum, and with most of Rome's main attractions in a walking distance! There are many bars and restaurants in the neighborhood, and a metro station nearby! The only problem we faced was the lack of hot water, but we only tried late at night because we were outside all day, so we didn't know if there should be hot water all day and night. The house was warm and cosy, and we wish we could stay longer and enjoy it more!
Thank you Andrea!
Thank you for having spent time to write this kind review.
You were right about the hot water: unfortunately I noticed only after your check out the boiler had been accidentally switched off by the previous guests who had been smoking on the balcony. They should have thought it was for the balcony's light. The boiler is working properly because it is brand new as I claimed in the property's description.
I am sorry about that.
Andrea made every aspect of checking in totally effortless. We arrived by taxi at the door and were in the apartment within 2 minutes. We felt like family immediately, and Andrea checked in on us daily to ensure all was well and we were enjoying our stay above the Ludus Magnus gladitorial training arena.
This apartment is a great place to stay in Rome. The room is cozy and very close to restaurant, supermarket and colosseo of course. It's very easy to reach by metro or bus. Andrea is a great host, share a lot information with us and always stay connected. Definitely the best place to stay in Rome.
This is a very cool, super mod apartment in the perfect part of town! The restaurants in the area are great, and the Colosseum & Palatine Hill are basically across the street. Bonus: Andrea is a fantastic host who knows all about the sights in the area & the details coming & going from the airports! You will love this Airbnb!
Die Wohnung liegt wirklich super zentral - direkt am Colosseum; Supermarkt, Pizzerien, Eisladen etc. sind gleich vor der Tür.
Die Wohnung ist geräumig, hell, nett eingerichtet, durch die 2 Ebenen toll geschnitten und somit auch für Familien mit Kindern sehr zu empfehlen (Wir waren mit 2 Kindern dort).
Gute und immer hilfreiche Tipps gab es vom Gastgeber Andrea, bei Fragen war er immer schnell zu erreichen.
Fazit: So macht Stadturlaub Spaß - wir können es nur weiterempfehlen. Perfekt!
Andrea's lovely apartment was the perfect place for us to spend our quick weekend in Rome. You couldn't wish to be any closer to the Colosseum. It is very secure an we felt safe at all times. Andrea was great with the communication all the way from booking to arriving, and was very helpful with local information when we arrived.
I cant recommend it enough, my only sadness is that we didn't stay for longer!. Hopefully il be back again one day.
