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 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 GREAT BEAUTY … 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 funished the THE GREAT BEAUTY … 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 second 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!!!
The building has a video surveillance service and a double door access that allow guests to feel 100% safe like at home.
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, AC, one bathroom and the very comfortable sofa turnable in a queen size bed (160 x 190 cm) 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.
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!!!
This is a NO SMOKING apartment, thank you.
Interaction with Guests
Please be aware I live in the same building and this means:
1) NO waiting time at your arrival (i.e. "the host has been stuck in the traffic jam");
2) NO panic if your flight delays;
4) ALWAYS available to assist you if something doesn't work properly.
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. This is the neighborhood of the OSCAR movie: "The Great Beauty - La Grande Bellezza".
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.

Andrea was the perfect host. He kindly arranged a limo for our pickup from the airport, and met us at the door to the apartment. If you have not traveled to Rome, the Metro only covers part of the city. This apartment is very close to the Colosseum metro and it is very convenient. The location is absolutely perfect. There are restaurants, a grocery and the Colosseum itself within a few minutes walk. The apartment is immaculate, and the bed was comfortable. The only possible negative is that there are some parties on the street below on the weekends. If noise bothers you, just pack some earplugs. We weren't bothered, but I thought I'd pass this along. I can't recommend this apartment enough. You will not regret staying here.
Thank you for your pleasant review.
I am glad to hear you loved the location and the apartment.
I am sorry for the night parties ... You weren't lucky because they were to celebrate the Gay Pride and, thank God for our sleep, this happens once a year. I am sure my gay friends will not complain about my sentence.
Location location location! What a great view out the window (though the colosseum had scaffolding on the corner we could see) and easy accessibility to the metro and bus system. Andrea was a great host, leaving a bottle of prosecco, creating a great guide to the neighborhood, and leaving keys for us since we were checking in late. The apartment itself was fantastic- clean and spacious with a great atmosphere and two bathrooms (bonus)! We had everything we needed and there is an elevator in the building for those who may have mobility issues. Andrea even allowed us to leave our luggage in the space after check out so we didn't have to lug it around Rome with us until we left. We would definitely stay here again!
Loved my first experience in Rome at Andrea Apartment! Everything was within walking distance and the hospitality was wonderful. I recommend renting with Andrea!
Andrea was very welcoming. We had also made a mistake and left some belongings at our last airbnb property before arriving with Andrea and he helped us have these documents sent on to us. Without his help we may have had to get the train back to Florence to get them. Honestly the kindest and most helpful person we stayed with.
This apartment is in a fabulous location, easily found and returned to after a long day of exploring. The kitchen was well stocked in terms of utensils , cutlery, and cookware. This is important to our family of three. There was also a grocery store very close by.
The loft bed was fantastic, and the bathtub was a very welcome surprise at this point in our trip. There is an air conditioner.
We very much appreciated how spacious and welcoming the apartment is, and how comfortable the couches, the dining table. Very easy to have three adults hang out in the space at the end of the day.
Our host was very informative and helpful, both before and during our stay.
One note is that the second bed is a couch that pulls out and you use the cushions from the couch as the "bed". This worked okay for our 18 year old, and we were there for only two days. Just noting it for others.
Overall, our enjoyment of this apartment far outweighed any inconvenience and we would gladly recommend to anyone, and wished we could stay longer.
Thank you Andrea for the use of your apartment. The location is superb with The Forum and The Colosseum in sight of the window. The array of restaurants so close is excellent. The apartment itself is wonderful !!! So spacious and equipt with everything you would need. The bed is so comfortable and to come home and relax with a wine was heaven.
We loved staying here. The flat is exactly how the pictures show it and everything was very clean and worked well. It was in a great location close to lots of sites and just a short walk to the metro. Andrea made check in and check out very easy and was a gracious host answering our questions about getting around. The only negative was that the first night (the night we were jet lagged) there was a very rowdy party going on on the street below the flat. It was very loud and hard to sleep. The noise continued till 2 in the morning. It was a Tuesday (May 5th) so I would be worried that on the weekends it may be loud as well. We only stayed 2 nights and the second night was quiet and peaceful.
