About the property

Apartment, Studio (Sleeps 3-5)

LO.VE COLOSSEUM (38 Via Capo d’Africa)

80 meters from the Colosseum, this beautiful newly refurbished apartment is located in the most ancient and distinctive part of Rome, on the 2 floor of an elegant, quiet 18th-century building, recently renovated.

A walk along the nearby Via dei Fori Imperiali will lead to all the major historic sites: Piazza Venezia, the Bocca della Verità, the Pantheon, Campo dei Fiori, and across the river to the Castel Sant’Angelo and the Vatican Museums.

Another walk leads to the Trevi Fountain, the beautiful Spanish Steps and the shopping area of ??Via del Corso.

It’s easy to reach the Testaccio and Trastevere neighborhoods, the first famous for its tasty trattorias, disco pubs and the Porta Portese market (open only on Sundays), the second for its narrow streets, full of restaurants and small shops open until late at night.

The area around the apartment has lots of trattorias, pizzerias, and high-class restaurants where you can taste typical Roman cuisine, and cafés and wine bars where you can have a drink at the end of a day spent admiring the wonders of Rome, set against the background of the Colosseum at sunset...

Within walking distance you can find banks, grocery stores, bakeries and supermarkets, an open-air market where you can buy fresh vegetables and fruit, and various shops.

To make your stay even more pleasant, you’ll be only a short distance from the gardens of Villa Celimontana, a summer site for open-air jazz concerts and movie screenings, with easy access to other parks and pleasant strolling areas.

The apartment is well-placed for public transportation, with the Colosseum Metro stop nearby, and easy connections to Termini and Ostiense railroad stations.

On request, when you make your reservation, we can provide a comfortable private car service to take you to and from Rome’s airports and railroad stations, and any other destination you seek, either within the city or beyond its walls.

The apartment has been tastefully and fully renovated by a well-known Roman architect.

All furnishings and fittings are new and of high quality.

WiFi access, air conditioning in every room and independent central heating complete the features of property.

The apartment consists of a lounge, a kitchen, a bedroom and bathroom, and is equipped with all the amenities needed for a twenty-first century stay while retaining distinctive features such as a centuries-old coffered ceiling.

The spacious bedroom has a king-size bed with a comfortable memory foam mattress and a 32-inch LCD TV.

The brightly-lit living room has a comfortable queen-size sofa bed and a 42-inch high-resolution LED TV.

The finest bed linen and towels provided during your stay will guarantee maximum comfort.

Perfect Location, Excellent accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

We highly recommend this apartment!! The location was perfect and the accommodations were terrific. Cris was very helpful and took time to show us around. Close to so many things you would want to see while visiting Rome. The Colosseum is 1-2 blocks away and the Vatican is a 45 minute trek by foot. A Market is also just a few blocks away for groceries along with many places to eat and drink. Highly recommend!!!!

Excellent location! Highly recommend this property!

  • 5 of 5

Cris was an amazing host. He picked us up at the airport, drove us to the apartment and went over everything with us. He took the time to drive us around the neighborhood showing us his recommended restaurants, all night grocery stores, etc. We loved the apartment. Very clean, comfortable bed, basic items in the kitchen such as spices and he left milk for us and some basic breakfast items which was very kind. I highly recommend this apartment!

Perfect Location and Apartment!

  • 5 of 5

What a great experience we had in Rome staying at this apartment! The location is so close to the Colosseum. As someone else has already mentioned the taxi stand is close by and the restaurants! So many to pick from and all so good and reasonable, especially Ristorante Colosseo "Luzzi"! It was also so nice to be picked up from the airport and then taken to the apartment and everything was explained to us. You should hire the transfers, it makes is so easy. Cris was so wonderful to deal with! We also had him take us to the pier for our cruise and he picked us up and took us to the airport. Again, it was the perfect location and apartment! Thank you Cris for our perfect holiday in Rome!

Charming place, superb location and great service!!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Christiano's apartment. It is perfectly located in a safe and quiet area (nearby police station) that is walkable to everything. A charming neighborhood with multiple restaurants, shops, and top tourist sites. Fantastic gelato shop just a block or two away -- look for the lighted rainbow gelato cone at night. The bus, train and cabs are within blocks. The apartment is spotless, well-appointed, quiet and large. We appreciated the good mattress and bedding. The apartment is a third floor walk up, but don't let that deter you. The air conditioning awaits you at the top. Spend the extra $$ to have Christiano pick you up from the train or airport. He gives you a wealth of information about local customs (ask him anything!) and a quick tour of the area -- well worth it, especially after a long day of traveling. It's nice to know what's quick and close until you have time to explore. He provides a complete binder of local information that helps to orient you as well. He also arranged additional transport for us to another hotel for our continued business trip -- very nice. I happened to leave behind my glasses and Christiano responded to my message quickly (even though he was on holiday) and helped with arrangements for the return. That was MOST appreciated. This was a highlight of our stay in Rome. From here we went to the Waldorf --- dare I say that we enjoyed Christiano's apartment and its fantastic location as much as an expensive hotel? Indeed.

NO Regrets in ROME!

  • 5 of 5

Cristiano was the PERFECT host; picked us up; provided a mini tour of neighbourhood; walked through flat to explain details & answer any questions. His place was ideally located and was VERY clean & nicely finished (exactly as seen in pics). Bed was soooo comfy after a long touring day! I would not hesitate to re-book in the future or refer to family & friends! Roma was everything we expected and Cristiano's flat did NOT disappoint these Canadians!

Thanks eh!!

Perfect Home away from Home in Rome

  • 5 of 5

A lovely, clean, well appointed apartment in a wonderful section of Rome. The colosseum is literally down the street along with the taxi stand, metro, cash changing kiosk, restaurants, 24/7 grocery store....the list goes on and on. We were very reassured by the safe feeling of the neighborhood, even as two women walking around alone at night.

The apartment is exactly as described with the added benefit of great energy and an open airy feeling. Cristiano leaves a wealth of information; tour book guides, restaurant suggestions, stores, a binder full of "how to" guides, etc. He even left his business card to contact him if we needed to. This was very helpful and much appreciated.

We chose the option of the car service offered by Cristiano to and from the airport. It was the same price as a taxi, but it was really wonderful to have someone happy to speak to us about the area and the apartment.

It was so comforting to return home to this apartment every night after a day of sightseeing or traveling outside of Rome. It truly felt like "coming home". I would highly recommend this property.
