About the property

Studio, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

Nice and cozy one-bedroom studio in a great location, a few meters away from the Colosseum and the Imperial Roman Forum. The neighborhood, called Celio, is extremely lively and full of traditional eateries and popular 'enotecas' that will satisfy your thirst for good taste. Upon request we can provide you with suggestions for food and drinks.

Via Ostilia, the street where the studio is located, is a quiet one way road. The metro stop 'Colosseo' is at walking distance and offers you the opportunity to easily get to the other areas of the city like a real Roman.

The studio located inside a building of the early '900, has been recently renovated to offer elegance and comfort. It is ideal for two people but it can host up to three. Whether you are in Rome for business or vacation, you will enjoy the place and the area.

You can enjoy a king-size bed, a big and stylish shower space, wifi internet, air-conditioning, heating, TV and a nice yard to relax after your sightseeing and where to sip a glass of wine.

Why Gianluca chose Rione XIX Celio

Having a small property in this neighborhood has always been my dream. Why? I have been practicing yoga for 7 years and the school is right here so I got fond of this area. The atmosphere is simply catchy. From busy mornings when everybody rushes to work to relaxed evenings in pubs and 'enotecas' to sip delicious wine and eat tasty food. Just around the corner you get a wonderful view of the Colosseum and from there you can walk to the main attractions of the city.

What makes this studio unique

Aside from a gift to all our guests, we also offer you discounted rates if you wish to visit Rome in an alternative way. Have you ever heard of Segway tours? We also can offer special rates for traditional italian foods in a nearby validated store.

Perfect location for the marathon

  • 4 of 5

It was a perfect location for the marathon that started at the Colosseum. Even to go and visit it's pretty central. The place was clean and had everything I needed. It was a little bit humid but with the dehumidifier on, the temperature in the studio was perfect. I really enjoy that place and would go back there if I'm in Rome.

Great Location - Super Friendly Owner - Adorable Apartment

  • 5 of 5

I couldn't have been more proud of choosing this apartment thanks to all the great reviews on VRBO! You will be too if you choose this place!

It is super close to the Colliseum - literally around the corner - which means you are also a 5 min walk to the Metro station! The street across the Colliseum is also where the apartment is, is lined with taxi's. What is great, is your close to the action (10 mins from the Piazzo) - but yet the street where the apartment, is tucked away - and quite quiet!! There is restaurant and pub nearby including a supermarket.

The apartment itself has everything you need, free wifi, a large shower (for European standards!), a clean bathroom and kitchen with fridge and stove (but why cook inside when you are surrounded by amazing restaurants?). The bed is not bad and the sheets were clean. A very modernly updated facility in a safe part of town.

If you are looking for a place to put your bags down for a comfortable rest but yet be close to everything!! The owner is super sweet, sincere and super helpful! :)

A studio apartment in the heart of Rome

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the studio apartment, it was just a block away from the Colleseum, and other historical places. The apartment was unique, a little of the past and a little of the modern. The tall ceiling was impressive as was the courtyard. The owner did everything he could to accomodate us. We'd stay there again. The neighborhood consisted of lots of cafes and grocery stores - most convenient! A couple of suggestions for improvement - a shower curtain would be nice and if there were built in electric adapters. One big drawback was that the sheets felt damp for some reason.

Excellent base for couples or singles visiting Rome

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just spent 5 nights here and found the apartment perfect for our needs and very reasonably priced. Gianluca is very nice and proved totally reliable and good to deal with. The apartment was very clean and well maintained. It is a ground floor studio, modern and comfortable and attractive but not deluxe. The location is great, the AC worked very well even in some serious heat, it was nice to have the kitchen with fridge, there is appealing food nearby (as well as plenty of in appealing tourist traps), and great cappuccino across the street costs 1euro.

The apartment was as promised and Gianluca was a great host! You have everything you need for a short stay in Rome. The property is clean and well-maintained. We stayed here the last 3 nights of a five week tour of Italy, and I must say that the bed in this apartment was the best we had slept in. This apartment is very, very near the Colosseum and a decent walk to many of the main attractions. There is a restaurant right outside the entrance and several grocery stores nearby. I would highly recommend staying here.

A Truly Special Stay

  • 5 of 5

An incredible way to enjoy Rome & practice Ashtanga at a trendy, charming and comfortable apartment at the heart of Rome; the property owner --Gianluca --was superb, friendly, responsive and professional. And to top it all the location is ideal, restaurants, transportation, historical sites at a walking distance. I found my special place in Rome, and plan to come back.

Owner's Response: it was a real pleasure hosting Andrea. She is nice, easygoing and delightful to talk to. I would be pleased if I could have her again. She also kept the apartment in perfect condition and that is absolutely something to highlight. Thank you. Gianluca
