About The Owner

Hi everyone! My name is Beatrice!

I am here to propose you my beloved properties in Italy. I am a simple person passionate of art, hospitality, architecture, Italian culture and Italy, travel-enjoying places like a local with locals. During the years I tried with my team in ItalyHomeXP & Mediterranea Property Owners to develop my dream:

***** Raise up a portfolio of properties with genuine Italian Character, prepared with all the comforts needed for international travelers for tourism of business to let them find their Italian home, including services that can help to let them experience the best of Italy, like a local, with locals (from fixed housekeeping and cooking at home to airport transfers, rent a car, guided visits etc *****

Me and my team test every house we have or we manage to ascertain our quality standards. We carefully listen to the voice of our guests to learn everyday how to improve our services and maintain fair prices and conditions.

We a registered company that pays taxes in Italy… so no fake property owners and bad surprises at arrival… booking online a temporary home from individuals every day more dangerous… no temporary workers to collect keys or clean… we have only permanent motivated staff that that take care of the properties and our precious guest with passion.

We are proud to became Premium Partners for the Housing Service of many Companies and Institutions to arrange the temporary homes for their expat or travelling employees in Italy like NATO, FAO, WFP, Procter & Gamble, Altran, BCG, General Motors – Chevrolet, Henkel, Credem, Pfizer, Protiviti, Banca Sella, Pontifical North American College of Rome, Pontifical Bishops Annual Congress and many more.


The Owner purchased this apartment in 1952

Why The Owner chose Rome

We have been living in this district for 30 years and we love it! It's one of the 7 historical hills of Rome, just by the Colosseum and we love to introduce our guests to this ancient jewels we love so much.

What makes this apartment unique

- living in the historical centre of Rome and having the most important tourist attractions at 2 minutes walk

- enjoying stunning views everywhere in the penthouse and a unique 360° view on ancient Rome from the 8th floor Roof Garden, the highest private point of Celio district

- waking up in the 6th floor big double bedroom or in the 7th floor bedroom and seeing the Colosseum from the window

- having a shower oudoor (in the 7th floor outdoor shower) while overlooking the Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore and then lying in the sun on the sunbeds in the 8th floor Roof Garden

- eating together in the big dining room or in the 6th floor terrace, which is a wonderful dining room in the open air overlooking the sunset, also for celebrating anniversaries (restaurants with terrace in Rome are very expensive: from € 80/140 for each person)

- bringing your kids to play in Villa Celimontana

- watching the sunset from one of the terraces, while drinking a Prosecco wine bought in the supermarket near the apartment (only 20 meters far away!)

Guestbook comments from the owner

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.

Happy Stay in Rome

  • 5 of 5

It is very local to all of the tourist attractions, we walked everywhere, in a lovely safe neighbourhood with supermarkets, bakeries and restaurants all close by.

The owners cannot do enough to make your stay an enjoyable one, without being too intrusive, and even put milk in the fridge for us as we were checking in after the supermarket's were shut. There was plenty of guide books on the book shelf and the lady that checked us in had provided a map with supermarkets, metros and interesting walks already marked.

Our stay in Rome was a lovely one and being able to return to such a lovely apartment after a busy day sightseeing made it even more special.

Thank you Hanna

“Location fantastic”

  • 5 of 5

The location couldn't be better. Close to the taxi stand, bus stop, Metro and easy walking distance to the Colosseum. Great services within 2-3 blocks, Twins Bar, the Pizza shop, butcher shop, grocery, bank, many restaurants most notable Hostoria Clementini, the Trattoria, and the Trattoria Romano 'Cafe on the Corner.' The apartment has every amenity and everything works. We stayed for one month and had no problems. Hanna is gracious, out going and communicates with her clients. She's an expert on touring Rome--she knows the location all the sites are, how to get to them and the history of Rome. Domus Colosseo is most amazing.

Thank you for the warm welcome and the superb Penthouse

  • 5 of 5

We had a week in this superb Penthouse with the capitol letter and expericed the best vacation in the last five years.

The view is stunning. You find yourself waking up in the morning to admire Rome from the Roof Top Garder or by the large windows.

The house is simple but is provided of every comfort you may need. It is perfectly located to enjoy Rome by walk or by bike. We have rented the electric bikes at 50meters and explored the whole city center! wow!

The train station is at 10 minutes and comfortable for day visits in Florence and Naples, both at 1 hour speed train.

The restaurants down the house are great and the kids enjoyed the pub as well.

What else. We will definitely recommend di marvellous penthouse to all our friends!

God bless,

Excellent location and host

  • 5 of 5

With my family we have a fantastic 4 night stay in Rome at Domus Colosseo. We stayed all time on the terrace overlooking Coliseum... oh and you should see it in the evening... We were 4 minutes from the Coliseum and could walk everywhere in Rome to sightsee. It was a 5 minute walk to the Metro which we used to get to the Vatican and the train station. Beatrice met us promptly when we got to the apartment and helped us with luggage; she was a very good host. She send us by email before our arrival Home and Local Guide with many recommendations for eateries and sightseeing which was very helpful. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone who would like to be in the center of Rome. Thank you Beatrice and Hanna!

Perfect anniversary celebration

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated our 30th anniversary here over the Thanksgiving Holiday with our son and his wife who were celebrating their first anniversary and it could not have been more perfect. The apartment is located in a charming, authentic neighborhood behind the Colosseum, with restaurants and markets within steps outside the door. We sampled several eateries using the handy guide left by the hosts. There is a market just two doors down that had everything we needed for snacks and light meals which proved very convenient.

The furnishings inside were comfortable and clean. The big bathroom was very modern, complete with large shower and plenty of hot water and the second bathroom was certainly a bonus. The bedrooms were also large and the beds had plenty of blankets and pillows and good mattresses. The living room is large and airy and I loved the old map of Rome on the wall. We didn't cook a real meal, but the kitchen seemed to have everything necessary.

The terraces are everything described in the other reviews and more. The view is spectacular and watching the birds flock and make patterns - mesmerizing! And the sunsets are amazing while enjoying wine and cheese with family.

The location is centrally located for walking to sites and the B line metro is a five minute walk from the apartment. The metro system is very easy to use and Termini station is only two metro stops away and we used it for day trips by train to Florence, Naples and Pisa. We even overnighted in Venice for a couple of days. Italy has wonderful train access, and a rail pass is definitely a recommendation.

Rafaella Boffa was the most gracious and helpful owner. I am so glad we met her. The business end of renting was handled professionally and with ease and the security deposit was returned before we left. She arranged all of our airport transfers and was so kind to our son and his wife when they arrived on an early flight. Her knowledge of the area was so interesting and my only regret of our entire two weeks was that I wish we would have spent more time with her.

I highly recommend Domus Colosseo and would love to stay there again when we return to Rome.

New Orleans

Wonderful Terraces and Views

  • 5 of 5

8 of us travelled from New Orleans, Louisiana, USA, and Abu Dhabi to experience the glory of Rome. We wanted a 3-4 bedroom apartment with terraces and views. We wanted to be able to have evening snacks and wine, while enjoying the lovely cityscape. Domus Colosseo was a perfect match for us. It was an easy stroll to the Forum and the City Center. There were innumerable wonderful restaurants in the immediate vicinity. The local grocery in the same block was very convenient. The apartment was well furnished, and our hostess, living close by, was always available for advice and suggestions.

I can heartily recommend this apartment. It is ideally located, and has amazing views. We would love to stay there again.
