Overview

Colosseum area Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Whisk a loved one away on a romantic break and forget about the world you are leaving behind, enjoying instead the relaxation and romance with someone special in this cozy, clean, central apartment: easily you can reach by foot the main sites like the Colosseum, Roman Forum, Santa Maria Maggiore Church, Piazza Venezia, Fontana di Trevi, Pantheon, Campo di Fiori.

This romantic cozy apartment, perfect for an unforgettable honeymoon, is located near the Roman Forum and the Colosseum in the area called 'Monti', ancient neighborhood of the 'Suburra ' mentioned in historical sources, that still today maintains a popular and characteristic flavor.

Before we start the description of the apartment we would like draw your attention on our COOKING CLASSES/ CULTURAL EXPERIENCE that are organized in the country side near Rome. Feel free to ask additional information or visit www.dolceroma.it/cookingtour.htm

The apartment is on the second floor of a building of the 19th Century (with elevator and air conditioning) and it is composed of: bedroom (queen/king size bed) with a small balcony that looks out on a good sized garden. With the greenery and freshness of the garden, you would never guess that you are in the historic center of Rome. The bedroom is separated from the living room by means of a sliding door. The door has been painted with tromp l'oeil effect by the owner and when opened forms, together with the decoration on the walls of the living room, gives an unique illusion.

Going down three steps you enter the dining area and kitchen corner (refrigerator, microwave, electric stove, and everything needed for preparing your brakfast or light meals). The tiles in the kitchen as well as the dining tabletop have all been painted by hand by the owner, another example of the care that has gone into decorating this apartment. The dining area looks out on a typical Roman piazza, complete with a characteristic pizzeria with tables and umbrellas. The original wooden ceiling has been restored, giving the warmth of wood to the entire environment. The bathroom is decorated with travertine tiles, includes: w.c., bidet, sink and shower and washing machine

This location is perfect for those who want to walk in the centre (easily you can reach by foot the main sites like the Colosseum, Roman Forum, Santa Maria Maggiore Church, Piazza Venezia, Fontana di Trevi, Pantheon, Campo di Fiori) or reach any other destination by public transportation. There is a bus stop (bus 117) close to the apartment that will take you in a few minutes in Spanish Steps or Piazza del Popolo (the trendy and famous fashion district) or use underground stop 'Cavour Line B' just at few steps from the apartment: in only one stop you will be able to reach the Central Station Termini and from there you can also easily reach Ancient Ostia and the seaside/beach front of Ostia Lido, where you can spend part of your day in summer season.

Cable TV with international news (BBC, CNN) movies in English (when the original languages is English) and DVD.

The owner offer free wire less internet service, so guests may bring their own laptop and be assured that they need not look for Internet cafes at odd hours to keep in touch with home. She provide a cell. phone (use of the phone is free,) so that guests can very easily reach her at any time, should they have questions or concerns about the apartment or about Rome itself(free).

She worked for many years in the airline industry as a cabin attendant and she has excellent language skills, including English, but also a real understanding of just what travellers need when they’re renting a short-term apartment in a foreign city. At check in she or her husband will personally welcome you and spend time to guide you in programming your vacation, sharing with you all their knowledge. You will have the feeling to meet a personal guide, that help you at 360' in discovering this big city so full of history, and save so much time that normally takes to a person that is in town for the first time.

Transportation from and to the airport can be organized from Rome's Airports. Driver will be out side the custom (no problem if your flight is not on time and run late) with the sign with your name and will take you directly to the apartment.

About The Owner

Natalia worked as a flight attendant (cabin crew) for Alitalia Airlines from 1970 to 1995. Prior to her work at Alitalia, she lived for more than a year in London, studying and working in a tourist agency. She speaks excellent English, understands and speaks Spanish and can 'get by' in French.

The twenty-five years she spent traveling from one country to another gave her an opportunity to learn about the ways and customs of many countries and enhanced her natural predisposition for interpersonal relationships; she always succeeds in establishing an immediate, friendly relationship with her guests.

Since 1995, she has attended the 'Academy of Decorative Arts', discovering a hidden talent for painting and decorating that she never imagined before. She now puts this talent to use personally decorating her apartments. In fact, the tiles in the kitchens and the tabletops in the dining areas of her apartments are all hand painted as well as the tromp l'oeil paintings, which gives each apartment a unique touch.

In the last 4 years she has attended courses of the History of Roman Art, which allowed her to get to know the city on a new level. She provides her guests with useful information on Rome and its monuments and archaeological sites.

Upon your arrival Natalia will make available, in addition to her knowledge and experience, a large number of tourist guides, brochures and maps of Rome so that you will immediately have Rome, as they say, 'in your hands.'

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2000

Why The Owner chose Colosseum area

The apartment is located next to the Roman Forum. The oldest and most important structures of the ancient city are located in the forum, including its ancient former royal residency the Regia and the surrounding complex of the Vestal virgins. The Old Republic had its formal Comitium there where the senate, as well as Republican government began. The forum served as a city square and central hub where the people of Rome gathered for justice, and faith. The forum was also the economic hub of the city and considered to be the center of the Republic and Empire.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wonderful neighborhood and helpful hosts

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a very pleasant stay at this property in January, 2015. We had visited Rome several times before but were delighted to explore the Monti neighborhood in which this property is located, and were also very pleased with how easy it was to walk to the Roman Forum, the Pantheon and other favorite parts of the city. Walter was a helpful and gracious host, providing guidance about the neighborhood and information about attractions we had not visited on previous trips. He also arranged our travel to the airport and double-checked with us to make sure the driver had arrived and all was well! The apartment itself is clean, comfortable and airy and just the right size for two people. It was warm in the winter, and -- for when the weather is better -- has a very pretty small terrace looking over a set of gardens. Many good restaurants, markets and a nice supermarket are nearby. I have family members considering a trip to Rome and I will recommend this apartment to them without hesitation.

Great location and excellent hosts

  • 5 of 5

We arrived in Rome from Florence not sure what to expect. Our experience using VRBO in Florence had been less than stellar. Upon our arrival in Rome we were quickly put at ease as our hosts were exceptionally inviting and met us at the room. Their personal touch was all over the property and they were very accommodating to our needs. I would recommend this property to anyone, it is close to the coliseum and many other sites. As many others have pointed out there are steps in the apartment but they should not hinder you from renting this apartment. We would stay here again if we ever have the opportunity to visit Rome again.

Perfect Roman holiday and outstanding hosts!

  • 5 of 5

We've rented numerous houses and cabins previously for vacations but this rental far surpassed all other rental experiences! We were a bit anxious as this was our first international rental but we've never found a place so completely furnished and owners that were so helpful and accommodating. Their personal attention to every detail in the apartment, every anticipated need, personally greeting us upon arrival, and even making local reservations for us far exceeded our expectations. Natalia made arrangements for someone to pick us up at the main train station (we traveled by train from Milan) and also for our return to the airport (we would highly recommend this as a cost effective, safe, and very convenient way to get to/from the apartment). The driver took us straight to the apartment and eliminated the worry about catching a taxi and hoping that we would find the right location. We found all comments made in other reviews and on the website to be 100% true. Great cell phone signal, reliable and fast Wi-Fi, firm but comfortable bed, TV included English language options, excellent restaurant recommendations and other great choices very close to the apartment. Also several local shops for picking up basic groceries if needed. We also enjoyed watching the pigeons outside of the kitchen window in the mornings when the neighbor lady fed them - recommend keeping the kitchen window closed at night / early morning :). This was our first trip to Rome but it will not be our last based on this fantastic experience. Everything about this experience was perfect and highly recommended! Jon & Michelle, TX.

Excellent Location and perfect accomodation!

  • 5 of 5

First trip to Italy for my husband and I traveling from LA. The trip consisted of 4 days in Rome, then train to 2 days Florence, followed by train 2 days Venice, and back to Rome to return to LA -- very hectic. Being busy professionals we had little time to truly plan ahead with the knowledge to understand exactly what we were going to be seeing and the significance. One thing we did do ahead of time was to pick the condo in Rome as we know how important this is otherwise you risk not finding a good rental. We are VRBO owners ourselves of a small condo in the Caribbean and enjoy staying at condos vs. hotels and understand the business from an owner's perspective. We picked Walter's and Natalia's place based on the many excellent reviews not necessarily based on location given as a "newbie" maps don't mean anything when stranger to the location. I have to say we definitely made the right choice. Everything written on other reviews about Walter and Natalia as hosts is true -- they go above and beyond to ensure you have everything you need and give you a good "lay of the land". The condo is perfect and comfortable with all you need. Natalia provides signage all over with all pertinent information you could possibly need, even emergency and hospital numbers. In terms of location, walking distance to everything plus the neighborhood kind of bohemian with many boutiques and excellent restaurants just steps away. The Cavour metro station is also steps away with a quick connection to Termini station where you can go either direction for the many sights to see in Rome -- we used it every day! Thank you Walter and Natalia for a wonderful "base point" in Rome for all of our touring! Sonia and Felix, CA.

The Best Value in Rome!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at Walter and Natalia's apartment at Via Leonina. The apartment is less than 200 meters from the train station and walking distance to virtually everything that you want to see in Rome. We bought a three day Roma pass but hardly used it as we could walk everywhere other than the Vatican.

The apartment is exceptionally clean, the bed is very comfortable, and bathroom is has a shower with lots of water pressure.

The one thing that makes this place better than any hotel is the service offered by Walter an Natalie. They are absolutely gracious hosts who go out of their way to make sure that you are comfortable and safe. They met us on our arrival and sat with us with maps and guide books (which they keep at the apartment.. so don't lug yours) to plan our stay and to top it off they leave you a local mobile phone to make reservations or call them in case of an emergency. They have extensive knowledge of the city and restaurants and their recommendation are 100% spot on.

If you are thinking of going to Rome this one place that I would highly recommend.

Our favorite place in Rome

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time that we have stayed at Walter and Natalia's apartment on Via Leonina. Once we decided we were going back to Rome, we decided that there was no other place to stay. The apartment has everything that you need-- from a VERY comfortable bed to a wonderful clothes washer and now a newly updated shower. But more than the wonderful amenities, WIFI, satellite TV system, and cleanliness, this apartment is close to everything. The Metro, The Coliseum, great grocery stores and an incredible array of restaurants. We simply can't say enough about this apartment or how well Walter and Natalia make sure that your stay is the best when you stay at this apartment. Thank you again, Walter and Natalia. We will be back!
