About the property

Cosy self-catering apartment in the oldest district in Rome

In the heart of the historical centre, in the Monti district, the oldest in the city, this cosy apartment is situated in a quiet, select residential area only 5 minutes walk away from the Colosseum, close to the Colle Oppio park. The area has great character with many art and crafts shops, restaurants and cafes'. The proximity of bus and metro stops makes it an ideal place for both tourist and business stays. Close by lie also the Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore, the first Roman church to be dedicated to the Virgin Mary, the church of Santa Prassede, one of Rome’s lesser known jewels and containing one of the best examples of Roman mosaic art, the Church of San Pietro in Vincoli, which houses one of the most important examples of classical art, the statue of Moses by Michelangelo, and the Basilica of S. Clemente, which is on four levels each covering a different century of history.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The location was fantastic. Loved our nightly strolls around the Colosseum. Everything was exactly as expected. Lovely host.

From start to finish, my friend and I loved our stay at this property, which truly is just a few steps away from the Colosseum. It was so nice having everything so close to the apartment. The owners were great. We were met and given the full overview the place with traveling tips and everything we needed. I would definitely go back if I return to Rome anytime soon!

All you Need

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful space, impeccably cared for and fully equipped to make for a comfortable stay. It's just a short walk to the Colosseum and metro line so you can get to sites near and far with ease (and the metro is easy to use so don't be intimidated). There's a grocery store a block away, and a coffee shop/cafe just around the corner. Tiziana and the other young lady who met us were very welcoming and informative upon our arrival making sure we were settled in and ready to enjoy our stay. We would definitely recommend this space to others and would stay here again should we return to Rome.

A terrific visit

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is well supplied, and located on a quiet street. The place was clean and the layout worked well for us. Grocery and restaurants were close. Stayed cool even without air con. The owners did a good job in communicating with us.

A great stay

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to stay. It is light filled and a very short distance from the Colosseum and the rest of the Monti region of Rome.

The bed is comfortable and the availability of a washing machine meant it was easy to wash and (air) dry our clothes after walking back from the Campo or the Vatican. The kitchen lacks an oven but the hot plates and small fridge enables preparation of food at home should you want to.

The three week stay we had there was wonderfully quiet. We could sleep with the bedroom windows open without noise. Wifi services were reliable.

I would happily stay there again myself and confidently recommend it to others as the first floor apartment was easy to access with luggage or groceries.

Appartement à recommander et idéalement situé !

  • 4 of 5

Loredana et Tiziana sont des hôtesses parfaites mettant à disposition un appartement très pratique et surtout idéalement situé ! Situé à 3 minutes à pieds du Colisée et pas loin de 2 métros, c'est un plaisir de se réveiller au calme dans cet endroit et d'ensuite chaque matin traverser un petit parc pour arpenter Rome. L'appartement n'est pas grand mais est très pratique et on peut facilement y dormir à 4 (double divan lit dans le salon et chambre double). Une adresse à se partager !
