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. POSITIVES 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 6. Wifi 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 NEGATIVES 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."

  • Great apartment, great amenities, great location

    "This is the second time I've stayed in one of Paola's apartments through VRBO. The first time was so nice that I knew her place would be my first choice if I was lucky enough to go back to Rome, especially since Paola herself is so nice and welcoming! The apartment is clean, there's a laundry machine, a comfy bed, and a comfy pull-out bed (I slept on it for 9 nights very happily). When you stick your head out the window you can see the Coloseum, which is pretty amazing. The pizza place downstairs is great for a fast meal and the Cavour metro stop is about a 3 minute walk away. The neighborhood is nice for families--lots of good, cheap gelato, nearby grocery stores to cook your own meals in the kitchenette, and plenty of takeaway places. I seriously love this apartment and the location. I've recommended this rental to numerous people over the years, and everyone has raved about it."

  • Great Apartment! Wonderfully setup and easy access, just Perfect for three!

    "After a little mixup at the airport with early arrival (Airlines fault) I was very glad to meet Stefano and get to the apartment. I was travelling with my 16 yr old daughter and her best friend who is 17 yrs old. The rooms were set up perfectly. All were comfortable and I was very happy to see a washing machine since our clothes were wet from the rain. All the furnishings were up to date and very welcoming. No view from the windows, but that is not why you are in Rome. A short trip down the elevator and out the door and you are in the middle of it. There is a supermarket across the street to get a few snacks or a full meal to cook in the apartment. A pharmacy next door for any medicines you might need and everything else is just a few minutes away. We had no trouble finding our way around. Great places to eat and shop within steps of the front door. There is a taxi stand just behind Santa Maria Maggoria, so you don't have to walk if you don't want to. The Colosseum is just a few minutes walk one way and the Termini is a few minutes walk the other way. Honestly, we have been to Rome 4 times, and this location is a great base location. The pictures of the apartment are the actual room, so you don't have to worry about it not being the one shown. I have had that happen before. This is the room we stayed in and I was very pleased and the girls were too. The beds were comfy and the bathroom with bathtub was great after a long day of walking. If (when) we return, I would not hesitate to call on Stefano again to book this apartment."

    "This was our first trip to Rome. We stayed in this wonderful, spacious apartment for 13 nights. It was perfect and Paulo was so gracious and accommodating. The location was great with the metro close; restaurants, pharmacy, gelato shops, grocery shops..everything was so close. A bonus was leaning out the window and seeing the Colosseum down the street! We hope to go back and will definitely stay here again."

Colosseo Foro Romano is History Lovers' Heaven

This is the ideal place for history buffs who love all that ancient Rome is about. The Eternal City (Rome) cannot be viewed in one or two weeks. It is hard to know what to see on any visit, but in addition to the Colosseum and Roman Forum, there are other attractions that are not to be missed. The world's largest church, St. Peter's Basilica which is said to be built over St. Peter's tomb, contains artworks from masters such as Michelangelo and Raphael. The Spanish Steps must be visited, and the sights here change throughout the year so you never know what awaits you. Walks in the many Roman gardens and parks will have you rubbing shoulders with locals as you take in the natural beauty of the area.
