Recent Colosseo Foro Romano (Coliseum & Roman Forum) reviews
Loved the location, but we had some issues
"I stayed at this property with my husband and three kids (age 15, 13, and 10) for four nights. Our trip did not go smoothly but I do recommend this place. The location was just about perfect. I can still remember the views and scents from the front window. I'd like to list the positives and negatives.
1. Quiet street near the Forum. It's easy to walk everywhere!
2. Plenty of space for my family of five
3. Good AC
4. Comfortable beds
5. Two TVs
7. A moka coffee maker (including a tutorial by Enzo!)
8. An amazing old building with good security
9. Airport pickup service
10. Helpful owner who answers emails promptly
1. No mention of city taxes in initial emails. Needed to know exact amount due to language barrier.
2. No hot water (at all) one day. We took cold showers.
3. No water pressure (at all) the next day. We were unable to use the shower or sink.
4. Bathroom much worse than the photos. Small, dirty, and smelly.
5. Couldn't get washing machine to work despite several attempts
So the negatives were a bit distracting for me as it was very hot in Rome and we had been traveling for a week already. We really needed showers and clean laundry! For a couple days, we felt like we were camping indoors rather than staying at an apartment. The owner is very nice and tried to help us resolve each issue. I feel confident that she will address the problems for future travelers."

"We were in love with this place the minute we arrived! It was so cute and located in a great spot. Andrea was an excellent host! He sat down with us and showed us on the map, how to plan out where we had wanted to go. We told him what we had in mind and he helped guide us. The map that he provides is perfect, as it has all of his recommendations on it. We tried the pastry place he recommended, clearly the locals choice too, as it was hopping. We also tried two of his restaurant suggestions and we were not disappointed. The apartment was excellent for the four of us and our kids ages 14 and 12 loved it. We had a view of the Coliseum from the window. There is a great patio area to sit and have a glass of wine. The neighborhood is very quiet even though the apartment is on a Main Street. The Green Apartments will be our choice for our next visit to Rome. Hopefully we can stay longer next time."

"We stayed for two weeks. The apartment is clean, spacious and air conditioned. Wonderful decks which we enjoyed every morning and evening. Ideal location with good local restaurants all around. The grocery store is 1 minute away. The owners could not have been more helpful and were a delight to meet. We will go back the next time we visit Rome."
