Rome Apartment Rentals Colosseum View


This amazing two bedroom apartment can accommodate up to 7 people and it is located on the top floor of an early 1900 6-story building with elevator.

A private external charming roof terrace on the above floor is accessible to our guests only: enjoy a glass of wine, a cappuccino in the morning or a meal in the evening while looking out over the Colosseum, the Vatican Dome, the Vittoriano (Wedding Cake), the Roman rooftops and other monuments! Only the guests of the listing 279021 can access the terrace that is NOT shared with anyone else. ONLY YOU!

This Rome Colosseum apartment is located very close to the most important monument of Rome: the Flavian Amphitheater also known as the Colosseum, one of the 7 Wonders of the World. The flat is in the heart of the Ancient Rome a few steps far from other important sites: the Nero's Domus Aurea, the Roman Forums, the Saint Mary Major Basilica, the Basilica of Saint Clement and the Saint Peter in Chains Church with the amazing Michelangelo's Moses statue. The apartment can welcome up to 7 people. It is made up of a living room with a double sofa bed, 2 bedrooms with king size bed (one of them can be split into 2), 1 full bathroom with shower, 1 toilet (WC+Basin) and a fully equipped kitchen. After some works now hot water in the shower is available continuously. So, plenty of hot water for your showers!

The home's position is incredible: 300 m. from the Colosseum, the Roman Forum and from the beautiful Colle Oppio Park. You can easily reach the other areas of the historical centre on foot or by bus and tram that conveniently stop in front of our building. If you prefer you can take the Metro/underground (line A and B) at the nearby stops of 'Manzoni' or 'Colosseo'. The apartment is located not far from the central train station (10 minutes by taxi or by bus/metro) and from the airport (45 minutes by taxi, 90 by train). Combined with 4 apartments in the opposite building, a party of 28/30 people can be accommodated. All of the above are important ingredients that make for unforgettable Roman Holiday...

The Holiday Home Colosseum Great Beauty Terrace is located on a 6th floor of a building with elevator, in the ancient and characteristic Rione Monti.

Upon your arrival you will receive a map of the city and useful information on the city sights, shops and restaurants, pizzerias, trattorias, wine-bars and groceries in the area.

About Paolo

My name is Paolo. I was born and grew up in Rome and I do love my city. I use to travel abroad renting apartments and I and my wife Raffaella decided to do the same with who want to spend a few days in the Eternal City. We try to do our best to make your stay as comfortable, cozy and unforgettable as possible. I offer assistance 24/24 and 7/7.

Paolo purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Paolo chose Colosseo Foro Romano (Coliseum & Roman Forum)

The Colosseum area is maybe the most ancient part of Rome and also the most dense of monuments, churches, museums and archaeological sites. The Colosseum (one of the 7 WONDERS of the World!) is only 200 meters far from the apartment. If you decide to stay in my apartment you will be able to walk everywhere saving lot of time and energies!

What makes this apartment unique

Exclusive upstairs terrace with amazing view over the Colosseum, the Vatican and the Vittoriano, wi-fi internet high speed access, building with concierge and elevator, large living room and 2 separated bedrooms: you will find all those things that can make unique your vacation in Rome!

Great experience

  • 5 of 5

Everything positive you've read is true about Paolo and his place. Close to colosseum and easy to find. We had no issues. Paolo was very accommodating when our flight changed twice. We took advantage of his help with a ride from airport and then when we left to go to train station. Everything went smoothly.

Best part was the terrace with the view

  • 4 of 5

Thankful for the elevator since I can never pack light. Liked having two bathrooms since there was 3 adults. Ten minute walk to the Colosseum and restaurants. Owner was nice to work with and gave recommendations by email of places to eat, visit and shop.

Apartment was very noisy at night due to loud traffic on street and people coming and going at late hours in the building. Could hear people closing the gate and walking on the stairs.

Building was secure with a gate on the outside near the street and another into the building which was comforting for someone like me who is not a city person.

Overall a great place

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 4 spent 2 nights here at the end of our recent 2 week trip around Italy. The correspondence with the owner was always prompt and great. Paolo arranged our transportation from the train to apt and from the apt to the airport. He was so patient and understanding when our train was 80 min late arriving and we had issues getting word to him. On arrival he met us at the apt and showed us around, even reviewing and revising our final morning early transfer to the airport. The location of this apartment is great if you want to be close to the amazing coliseum. There are great restaurants , gelaterias, and easy transportation nearby. Having spent two weeks climbing stairs the lift was a welcome sight! The rooftop deck was amazing day and night. It is very large with several sets of furniture. I give it 4 stars because it could use a little TLC in a few areas as other have addressed in their reviews. The shower doors were practically off the track and I was not able to fully close them without fear of them falling. The roof access was very dark at night and we used our phone flashlight to safely climb up. We made use of the hide a bed for our son but were not able to find any spare sheets so we stripped one of the twin beds and used them so he would not have to share a room with our daughter. Because we stayed just a short 2 nights I didn't bring these up to Paulo but I know he would be very responsive if needed. Someone prior to us broke the coffee pot and he offered to bring a new one over asap. Overall would consider this apt again when in Rome and dealing with Paulo was great!

Beautiful location. Beautiful view.

  • 5 of 5

Paolo was a wonderful host. He arranged for a great last minute guided tour and taxi to airport. He met with us and advised us on multiple things. The location is wonderful and the view from the private balcony was fantastic.

Plenty of room in the apartment. Very comfortable. There were some minor details that could have been better but Paolo dealt with them immediately when we brought them to his attention. He was very responsive. Thanks for the bottle of wine, Paolo!

We would recommend this place to our friends and would enjoy returning. A wonderful place and place.

Loved it!

  • 4 of 5

Overall the location of the apt. Is fabulous. 2-3 blocks from Colesseum. Transportation busses/ metro within that distance. Restaurants are around the corner. Cafe just down the street. The apt is on the 6th floor but there is a lift. The beds were comfortable. The kitchen had all the basics needed. Although we didn't cook. We didn't use the ac because the days were warm and the night cool so we slept we windows open. The apt is not on street side so it's very quiet. So why a 4 and not 5 starts? Well the apt needs little TLC. Door on the first bedroom were off the hinges. We didn't move it cause I was afraid it would fall down and break. The stairs to terrace are not lit at night and there's construction stuff on the path. - not serious ordeal but lack of lighting can make it hazardous. And the main bath smelled of urine. The shower doors were difficult to open because top rail were the door slides were cracked. This was a mom and daughter trip and in all fairness I never contacted Paolo over these items. We were enchanted with Rome. I would rent the apt again.

Apartment is in wonderful location and Paulo was a great help

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is in s great location, close to colosseum, forum and Palestine hill. The other direction it is a short walk to Metro.

The apartment has a wonderful private balcony over looking the Colosseum. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen an den were adequate. The only negative was the small shower. Not a big deal to us but may bother some.

Paulo, who checked us in was wonderful. He showed us where everything was on a map, showed us the how everything worked in the apartment and even told us the best restaurants in the area.
