Interaction with Guests
I usually await guests at the address of the apartment, so that I can explain everything regarding the property. I am available for advices, such as restaurants and nice place to visit, so prepare your questions and I will give you all the answers when will meet in Rome! I am always reachable by mail or by phone… so if you need to get in touch with me during your stay, or before the arrival, no worries!
This is still of the authentic areas of Rome's historic center. The apartment is ideally located for who wants to explore the city by foot, but also reachable by car, for those traveling with their own cars.
In the neighborhood there are plenty of restaurants and bars, and also supermarkets and an open market are available, for those who like to buy good products and cook their own meals at home.
The apartment is also very close to the imponent Basilica of S. Giovanni in Laterano, and to many interesting churches a bit out of the beaten tracks, such as S. Clemente, S. Stefano Rotondo and Santi Quattro Coronati.
Also the market of VIA SANNIO, where you can still find some good "Vintage" staff is only 10 minutes walking from the flat.
Metro stop (B line - COLOSSEO) and buses available for all directions.

Guests are asked to have a polite attitude, and to not disturb the other people leaving in the building.
No smoking flat!
Check in is possible any time after 1pm.
For late arrivals there is an extra charge of Euro 30 after 9pm and Euro 50 after 10pm.
Melissa was very accommodating even though our train was delayed about one hour, she also allowed us to check out late given that check-out was at 10 and our train was at 18... all of this was GREATLY appreciated. The apartment was clean and tidy as shown in the pictures.
I slept on the small bed in the hallway and the sheets felt humid, I thought it was strange but didn’t think much of it. Then I saw that the picture on the wall above it was wrinkly from the edges and realized that the wall where this bed is located has the shower on the other side, so that might explain the humidity, I still don't think this is normal, but like I said, it wasn't that big of a deal.
The real problem I found was that the WIFI connection didn't work (even though the announcement for this apartment reads: Charming Colosseum suite with wifi).
As soon as we were greeted we were warned by Olimpia that the wifi connection was poor, I thought at least it would connect with few bars. We were 4 people in the apartment and neither of us was able to connect to WIFI during our 3 day, 2 night stay. This was a problem because, as tourists, we were REALLY counting on it. If I had known the WIFI didn’t work I would have chosen a different place.
Melissa was friendly but unfortunately our stay was terrible. There was a horrible smell in the house which put us off eating or using the kitchen. We were also bitten by bugs in the bed so we were not too pleased with our stay. The price is not worth it, you are paying to be close to colleseum. You are better off paying the same price and staying outside the busy areas for something better. The transport is great so its not an issue. Also the shower is tiny and not ideal for tall people
Melissa met us at the apartment. She was pleasant and the neighbourhood around the apartment was safe and nice.
The apartment was clean and quiet. It was very close to the Coliseum, five minutes from a subway and near some small restaurants.
O apartamento está precisando algumas melhorias, cortinas e almofadas velhas, tivemos problemas com fogão, embora sempre que mantivemos contato com Melissa foi dado retorno.
Melissa is a great host and helped us with some useful tips with regard to places to visit and restaurants. Location is excellent very close the main attractions. Ideal for a couple or a small family.
The reservation was canceled 5 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Tutto bene. L'appartamento è in una posizione strategica ( a due passi dal Colosseo) e Melissa è un'ottima host disponibile a risolvere ogni piccolo problema. Consigliato.
