Domus Colosseo is a BIG AND LUXURY APARTMENT(130 m2 plus 130 m2 of terraces) arranged on three floors with a breathtaking 360° view over ancient Rome. It is ideal for families and large groups looking for a VERY CENTRAL penthouse. At only two-minutes walk from the COLOSSEUM and the IMPERIAL FORUMS, it is perfect for visiting ancient Rome while comfortably settled in a newly renovated apartment equipped with FULL COMFORTS (Jacuzzi hot tub, Internet wi-fi, air conditioning, satellite Sky TV, washing machine, dishwasher, coffee machine, microwave, elevator, iron, city guides etc.). 360° VIEW OVER ANCIENT ROME: Enjoy a breathtaking view all over the centre of Rome from its 3 terraces and windows.

IDEAL FOR A LARGE GROUP OR A FAMILY: The apartment is ideal for a large group or a family, as the space of the entire property (260 m2) allows full ease of living for 6 adults plus 2 children under 10 years.

IMPORTANT. At the moment a portion of the view in front of the apartment is disturbed by works in progress (e.g. cranes) for the construction of the Line-C subway, that can also produce noise during working hours.

Guestbook: Jacqueline – UK (November 2007)

“All of my family loved the apartment. It was clean and all amenities were sufficient. The location was perfect, we couldn't have asked for anything more. The advertisement for the property reflected the apartment and we all said we would definitely come again probably in the spring to make the most of the terrace views. We very much enjoyed our stay. Thank you for renting us this wonderful apartment.”

Ken – Australia (September 2007)

“The apartment meet our requirements superbly. With an extended family group it provided all the space and amenity that we needed for our holiday. The location is magnificent. Everything we required was within walking distance. Local shops were adequate and the assistance provided by Raffaella whilst we were here and Carolina in making the booking were exceptional. We felt most welcome.”

Guestbook: Michael – USA (June 2007)

“The terraces were wonderful with great views. Bedrooms and living areas are very comfortable and spacious. We loved the location with all the neighbourhood shops and cafes. The apartment was clean and everything worked well. Having big windows that opened was lovely - the breeze was great.”

Jody – Australia (June 2007)

“Excellent! Perfect accommodation for 2 families. Great location & view. The terrace is fabulous! Wonderful hospitality. Lovely family, very helpful.”

Linda – USA (December 2006)

“View and location is tremendous! We found the apartment very clean and comfortable. Easy access to taxi, sites and attractions. Local neighbourhood laundry, pharmacy + restaurants made it ideal! Our host was very helpful in providing information and assistance. Thank you very much!”

WONDERFUL FAMILY APARTMENT IN ROME!

  • 5 of 5
I cannot say enough wonderful things about this apartment and the owners. We booked this apartment at the last minute and the owners were so accommodating and helpful. Our family was traveling with another family, we had children that ranged from 6 to 19, and we could not have picked a more perfect place for our vacation. The apartment is fully outfitted and so convenient to grocery stores, restaurants, transportation, and so many sites. We felt so at home. From the balcony you can watch the sunset over the Colosseum. Lots of Wow factor here. There was no need for a car. There is also an elevator if you need it. We traveled here by train and were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go, it is very centrally located. We toured the Colosseum, Palatine Hill, The Forum, the Vatican and St. Peter's Basilica. We wandered, with the help of maps left by the owners, and found Trevi Fountain and the Pantheon as well as so many shops and Gelaterias. We even took a day trip to Pompeii from here. The neighborhood is beautiful and safe, We had everything we needed and more in the apartment. The owners were so friendly and even walked us around the block to the store and other places so we knew where to go. The owners truly care about the apartment and that the tenants have a wonderful vacation and make memories that last forever. We treasure our time here and would come back here in a heart beat. I loved going on long walks exploring and coming back by the Colosseum and thinking we were home. What a blessing this place and the owners have been to our families.

COMFORTABLE, HAPPY, PERFECT STAY

  • 5 of 5
From the warm welcome (which included assistance booking transport from the airport) to the absolutely impeccable location and furnishings, our stay was perfect. Raffaela and Giovanni are friendly, welcoming and truly invested in your comfort. And the apartment feels like home. It has everything you could want or need — washing machine, refrigerator, plenty of dishes and glasses, a TV with the option to watch shows in English (this was a hit with the kids), even a small grocery store 2 minutes down the street. But once you head up to the rooftop terrace to watch the sun set over the Colosseum, you'll know you're not at home. Still, it's the best feeling you could hope for — to feel at home and cared for in a foreign city.

A VERY GOOD PLACE TO STAY

  • 4 of 5
I am writing this review a little late since we stayed in the apartment last July 2011. However feel it is necessary to write a review since there are not many regarding this property. I highly agree with several of the points in the existing reviews:

• views from this apartment are spectacular;
• clean and very quiet;
• great outdoor space including three separate terraces with dining and bar areas and a great outdoor shower;
• in a great old Roman neighborhood within walking distance to Coliseum and Appian Way;
• restaurants and grocery markets were easy walking distance: one grocery store is located on the street right beside the building;
• Signora Rafaela Buffa, the apartment owner, will try to ensure that your stay in Roma is enjoyable.

With regard to one of the on-line reviews which stated that the apartment was “disappointing” and more “luxury” was expected, with respect to that reviewer, don’t be swayed by that review. Yes, this apartment is not the W or the Mandarin Oriental and some of the furniture and kitchen elements could use a little updating. However, the bottom-line is that if you are travelling with a large group including children/teens/seniors, and you desire convenience, security and options in terms of eating and excursions within walking distance, you should give the apartment serious consideration. While the price may be a little more expensive than other similar rentals suitable for large groups in Roma which I don’t think are plentiful, this apartment is worth it and is a lot cheaper than a paying for separate rooms at luxury or other hotels in Roma.

FIVE STAR STAY

  • 5 of 5
This amazing apartment, in a great Roman neighborhood, provided our large family a respit and home base, during our stay in Rome. The apartment was efficient, with gathering tables and seating in the dining area, outside terrazzo and on the rooftop. The view of the Coliseum from the rooftop was beyond compare. The metro is a five minute walk from the apartment, just across the street from the Coliseum. Restaurants and super markets were easy walks, within the neighborhood. The apartment owners were wonderful people. They left a folder of timely and useful information, including the name of a cab service that was always reliable. We had a beautiful experience and highly recommend this apartment.

AMAZING VIEWS, DISAPPOINTING INSIDE

  • 3 of 5
While the views from this apartment are spectacular, the interior fitting were far from superior. We chose the apartment because we were travelling with our 14, 19, and 21 year old children and wanted the space it provided and based on the price, expected to be provided with more luxurious appointments. As is turned out the mattresses were thin, the sheets were clean but had either been mended or needed mending and the kitchen pots & pans appeared to be the cast-offs from another home.

Positives about the apartment are: the location -close to the colisseum but didn't have to fight crowds; very clean; outdoor space.

THE BEST APARTMENT IN ROME

  • 5 of 5
we stayed in this apartment for a week in May as we were being married in rome and had family friends over from the uk with us. I visit rome every year but can honestly say this was the most wonderful place to stay. The ownwers are 2 of the most charming and helpful people , the apartment is beautiful and incredibly well arranged with everything you could need. The area is perfect , so easy to travel around from but also a lovely roman neighbourhood with great restaurants and markets and bars. We felt instantly at home . The apartment has the wow factor but also lots of space and privacy, spotlessly clean and a great little supermarket downstairs. What really makes it stand out as well is that you really get a strong sense from the owners that they care. They are very proud of their beautiful apartment and you feel they really want you to have a wonderful stay. It was very easy to book with them . We had the most wonderful wedding in Rome and it was people like the lovely owners of this apartment that helped make it so wonderful. I cannot recommend this property enough and we will be going back to stay here every year when we visit Rome. We loved , loved it , loved it , loved it !!!

THE DISTRICT. Located in the heart of ancient Rome, the apartment is perfect for those who love both the majestic Roman antiquities and the little alleys or squares with their charming “dolce vita”. Celio District, one of the Seven Hills, is becoming very fashionable like Trastevere but so full of greens (it is encircled by three public parks). Pubs, restaurants, wine bars and pizzerias are everywhere. HOW TO REACH THE APARTMENT. • Fly to Rome: convenient though luxurious airport transfers both from Ciampino and Fiumicino are available. It is more comfortable and sometimes even cheaper than taxis. • Drive to Rome: a large paying garage is only 50 meters away. • Come to Rome by Train: Termini (central railway station) is just two subway stops away. • Underground stops (“Colosseo” line B and “Vittorio Emanuele” line A) and bus stops are only 2-10 minutes walk.

Other Activities: Visiting the heart of ancient Rome!
