The Space

(website hidden) COLOSSEUM (38 Via Capo d’Africa)

80 meters from the Colosseum, this beautiful newly refurbished apartment is located in the most ancient and distinctive part of Rome, on the 2 floor of an elegant, quiet 18th-century building, recently renovated.

A walk along the nearby Via dei Fori Imperiali will lead to all the major historic sites: Piazza Venezia, the Bocca della Verità, the Pantheon, Campo dei Fiori, and across the river to the Castel Sant’Angelo and the Vatican Museums.

Another walk leads to the Trevi Fountain, the beautiful Spanish Steps and the shopping area of ​​Via del Corso.

It’s easy to reach the Testaccio and Trastevere neighborhoods, the first famous for its tasty trattorias, disco pubs and the Porta Portese market (open only on Sundays), the second for its narrow streets, full of restaurants and small shops open until late at night.

The area around the apartment has lots of trattorias, pizzerias, and high-class restaurants where you can taste typical Roman cuisine, and cafés and wine bars where you can have a drink at the end of a day spent admiring the wonders of Rome, set against the background of the Colosseum at sunset...

Within walking distance you can find banks, grocery stores, bakeries and supermarkets, an open-air market where you can buy fresh vegetables and fruit, and various shops.

To make your stay even more pleasant, you’ll be only a short distance from the gardens of Villa Celimontana, a summer site for open-air jazz concerts and movie screenings, with easy access to other parks and pleasant strolling areas.

The apartment is well-placed for public transportation, with the Colosseum Metro stop nearby, and easy connections to Termini and Ostiense railroad stations.

On request, when you make your reservation, we can provide a comfortable private car service to take you to and from Rome’s airports and railroad stations, and any other destination you seek, either within the city or beyond its walls.

The apartment has been tastefully and fully renovated by a well-known Roman architect.

All furnishings and fittings are new and of high quality.

WiFi access, air conditioning in every room and independent central heating complete the features of property.

The apartment consists of a lounge, a kitchen, a bedroom and bathroom, and is equipped with all the amenities needed for a twenty-first century stay while retaining distinctive features such as a centuries-old coffered ceiling.

The spacious bedroom has a king-size bed with a comfortable memory foam mattress and a 32-inch LCD TV.

The brightly-lit living room has a comfortable queen-size sofa bed and a 42-inch high-resolution LED TV.

The finest bed linen and towels provided during your stay will guarantee maximum comfort.

  • Thank you so much Cris! Everything was perfect! Terrific communication, even before I made the booking. No question went unanswered. For anyone looking for somewhere to stay in Rome, look no further! Seriously! You won't find a better location; a cleaner apartment; a more hospitable and helpful host than this one. The location is as close to the Colosseum as you can be without being IN it.
    We highly recommend the airport pick-up that Cris arranged. Made it very easy for our family of 5, luggage and all, to get to the apartment without any hassle. Ms Ovidia met us at the apartment to give us the keys etc and was very welcoming. Our 3 children (7,9 and 11yrs old) had no trouble fitting into the huge sofa bed and single bed provided. All beds are very comfortable, lots of pillows and blankets if needed. Cris really has thought of everything - from travel adapters for your travel appliances, to coffee for that kick-start!
    Be sure to try the expressi at the little bar/cafe down one block towards the colosseum. The guys there are fabulous & very friendly! The beer is cold and the coffee strong. They even make their own gelato!
    We cannot rate this place - and host - highly enough.
    Thank you Cris! I'm sorry we didn't meet in time. :)

  • Best place! Do not hesitate to stay at this gem of an apartment! One of our most impressive stays in Europe! Cristiano was an over the top host- showed us where everything we needed was, informed us on parking and even helped us find a spot, showed us where to eat and where to walk and visit. The city guides and even recipes was incredible! The building is beautiful, safe, located perfectly and the apartment was fantastic. The bed was the most comfortable bed- way better than a hotel. Apartment was spacious had ac and felt brand new and modern. The snacks and water were much appreciated! Will be back soon thank you so much Cristiano!!

  • Mi familia y yo hemos venido muy contentos de Roma. El apartamento de Cris es precioso, esta muy muy limpio, y además está muy céntrico.
    Cristiano es una persona muy agradable y muy atenta.
    Nos ha explicado los sitios para visitar y donde comer y hacer la compra, 100% recomendable, hemos comido genial.
    Desde el apartamento se puede ir a todos los sitios andando aunque puedes coger el metro que esta a 5 minutos.
    Aconsejo el apartamento 100%.

  • Cris' apartment was amazing. He has thought of everything. There are power adaptors, guidebooks, and even a big binder full of suggestions!

    He left milk and snacks for us. The apartment was clean and well equipped. I would stay there again in a heart beat!

    Check in and check out was smooth and the place felt safe and secure. The location is amazing!

  • Great place to stay! I feel so fortunate to have found such a great place to stay for my first trip to Rome. Being that I am picky when it comes to cleanliness and overall energy, Christano won me over. Right when we walked into the apartment, I was in awe by how clean his apartment was. And trust me, I've had my fair share of dirty airbnb spots where I refuse to shower because their bathroom was so gross! Normally when my bf and I book an airbnb, we pack our own sheets for the bed, but we didn't even have to use it. I felt like I was at home.

    The shower was great especially the water pressure. The bed was comfortable (not too soft, or too hard)-- also he has a pull out sofa that can converts into a bed should you have extra guests. Loved the decor-- clean and modern. There are no elevators in the building-- we were on the third floor. Great location-- walking distance to Colosseum, close to taxis, banks/ATM, and lots of restaurants/bars. There's air conditioning and the wifi was fast! Christano provides a folder with everything you need to know about Rome from restaurants he recommends to the attraction sites-- very organised.

    Great communication with Christano-- my bf proposed to me in Rome and being that we didn't know anyone in Italy, my bf needed to find a photographer and videographer for the proposal since he wanted it documented (all without me knowing of course)-- Christano was able to help him execute everything.

    Honestly, I told my fiancé that we are definitely staying at Christano's place when we visit Rome again! I highly recommend staying here-- you won't regret it. 5 plus stars all the way. If all my airbnb lodging could be as great (and clean) as this, I would a happy traveller :)

    Also, Christano gets his apartment professionally cleaned in between guests too.

  • Everything about our stay in Rome was perfect! Cristiano was an incredible host (I definitely recommend his airport pick up service, it took so much stress away) and was very informative - we especially appreciated his binder in the apt that included instructions for the apartment, eating recommendations, nearby markets/atms, etc. The apartment is in a great location - quiet at night and very safe but still enough life and energy to feel like you are really experiencing the city. The apartment was clean (exactly as pictured), the bed comfortable and Cristiano had literally thought of everything. A fabulous apartment in a great location.

  • Great communication, service and apartment.
    My wife and two teenage children were traveling to Rome for their first visit. I was looking for a safe, clean, central location with a host we could trust. We took a bit of a gamble for us but it defiantly paid off and we scored.
    The apartment was just as described and maybe even better, more importantly Cristiano was a host we could trust. Cristiano was their waiting for my family to arrive by train just as he said he would, found them in a crowded station and took them safely to the apartment and a return to the airport a few days later.
    Cristiano helped them find restaurants and other travel assistance. To us the travel assistance once in Rome was as important as the apartment.
    Thank you Cristiano for taking care of my family!

  • We had a wonderful stay at Cristiano's "Love Colosseum" apartment. It is a beautifully appointed apartment with all the modern conveniences you could want, and sparkling new and clean. The bed and pillows are super comfortable, towels are thick and soft, shower is nice and hot and the washer and drier were great. We would highly recommend the apartment if you're planning to stay in Rome...great location too! We enjoyed meeting Cristiano who was extremely nice and had some great recommendations for us. Thanks, Cristiano!
