WHY THIS APARTMENT? Location, Amenities, Service, Furniture.

LOCATION

The home's position is enviable; this holiday home is located in the heart of the Ancient Rome very close to the most important monument of the Eternal City, the Colosseum also known as the Flavian Amphitheater, and the Roman Forum. From here you can easily reach the other areas of the historical centre on foot or by bus and tram that conveniently stop very close to the building, or if you prefer, by Metro/Subway (line A and B) at the nearby stops of 'Manzoni' or 'Colosseo’. So, it very simple to get to the Vatican and St. Peter’s, Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain, Navona Square, etc. The neighborhood is full of local restaurants and pizzerias. A Supermarket open 24 hours and 7 days is just 5 minutes far from the apartment. A small convenient store open till midnight is located in the building.

Final cleaning is included in the price.

SERVICE

From the first inquiry to the check-out you’ll have a friend in Rome. This is not an agency, but just a family run small activity. So, I can make a unique tailor-made vacation to fulfill your travel dreams. Upon your arrival you will receive a map of the city and useful information on the city sights, shops and places to eat in the area. On request I can arrange transportation from/to airport, Port or train station. Also, I can suggest you how to skip long lines at museums and how to maximize your time in Rome. Lastly, I can organize walking group or private tours.

FURNITURE

This modern apartment has just been restored and elegantly furnished. Comfortable beds, stylish wardrobes, modern and fully equipped kitchen, elegant bathrooms.

About Paolo

My name is Paolo. I was born and grew up in Rome and I do love my city. I use to travel abroad renting apartments and I and my wife Raffaella decided to do the same with who want to spend a few days in the Eternal City. We try to do our best to make your stay as comfortable, cozy and unforgettable as possible. I offer assistance 24/24 and 7/7.

Paolo purchased this apartment in 2001

Why Paolo chose Rome

The Colosseum area is the most ancient part of Rome and also the most dense of monuments, churches, museums and archaeological sites.

The Colosseum (one of the 7th WONDERS of the World!) is only 200 meters far from the apartment.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment is elegantly furnished and decorated in a modern style. Air conditioning, satellite tv with LCD Flat screen in each room, WI-FI high speed access internet, building with concierge and elevator, large living room, large kitchen and 2 separated bedrooms: you will find all those things that can make unique your vacation in Rome!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Je le fais avec beaucoup de retard mais je voulais vous remercier encore pour l'appartement à Rome loué en avril (11 au 18/4); nous avons vraiment passé une très bonne semaine; il était très confortable et bien

situé. Je le recommanderai.

Bien cordialement

Perfect location, clean and spacious apartment.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 (plus two small babies age 1 and 2) enjoyed our stay in our "Rome Home" provided by Paolo. The apartment "truly" is just a "2 minute walk" to the Colosseum, a few more steps and you can use the "Hop On, Hop Off" bus service to see any area of the city. Most historic sites are within walking distance as well as fine restaurants and supermarkets. We loved the variety of restaurants and small cafe's for our morning expresso!!!

We appreciate the extra care Paolo provided in preparing the apartment for our two grandchildren. Two baby cots were set up with lovely linen ready for them. No stairs inside apartment. Includes a small lift to manage and move luggage to the fourth floor. Paolo did an outstanding job and more than fulfilled our expectations. We would recommend it to anyone wanting to spend a wonderful time in Roma!

Great location for exploring Rome!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect apartment for our family of 5 during our trip to Rome. Even before we arrived, Paolo helped arrange ground transportation from the airport and was a great communicator about our trip. Paolo met us as we walked in the door and took time to make us familiar with the well stocked, clean apartment and give us suggestions for some great restaurants. We loved walking out the apartment and seeing the Colosseum everyday. The location was fantastic! We loved the surrounding neighborhood and easily walked to all of the sites in Rome. It was nice to be able to enjoy the A/C during the hot weather and found all of the beds to be comfortable.

We loved staying at this apartment - it made Rome feel like home.

Great apartment and location

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 stayed in the apartment for 3 nights. Apartment is in a family oriented area, yet located within easy walking distance from coliseum, metro, grocery and restaurants. Apartment is on 4th floor. Has great wifi - critical for my two teens. There is a small elevator which moved our luggage just fine. Paolo was an excellent host. He arranged a taxi for us from the airport for a good price and they were there to pick us at promptly for our 7:30 a.m. arrival. Paolo met us at the apartment, gave us excellent advice and recommendations. The apartment is very large with very high ceilings. The pictures are very accurate. I would definitely recommend this apartment and renting from Paolo.

Easter visit

  • 5 of 5

Our first home away experience and we will definitely do it again. My family of 6 was very comfortable in this apartment just a few blocks from the coliseum. Great location with a pastry shop downstairs and tons of restaurants in a few block radius. Paolo gave us great tips for shopping, restaurants and activities and made it clear he would be available during our stay for further help. I don't know if this is a common occurrence but the elevator was broken for several days of our stay (4th floor apt)- not a problem for us but if you're counting on the elevator just check on that!

Owner's Response: Dear Elahna, it was nice to read your review and to understand that you and your family enjoyed the apartment and the great location with the pastry shop located in the building and lots of restaurants in the area. It was my pleasure to give you all the local tips and recommandation. As per the lift it is actually the first time that it has been out of order. The problem was that it happened on Good Friday and we were able to call the assistance only the following Tuesday since in Italy everything is closed from Good Friday to Monday after Easter. So, usually it works efficiently and this was just an inconvenience that normally takes 1 business day to fix. I hope to have the opportunity to have you as my guests again in the near future! Ciao Paolo

Excellent location and host

  • 5 of 5

Our family of seven stayed in the property and enjoyed it a great deal. Paolo was an excellent host and went out of his way to be helpful. The property was extremely convenient; within walking distance of most of the tourist attractions and close to a metro station.

Fantastico!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Roma was wonderful. Much of that was because of Paolo. He was a fabulous host. He was there for our arrival and helped with luggage. He gave so many wonderful tips on Roma. Everything you could need. Any question we had, he was quick to answer. He also set up a taxi for us upon our departure, and held our luggage for us safely in building while we explored Roma for one more day, until our evening departure. The apartment was perfecto for the 4 of us. It had great Italian charm. Thank you so much Paolo!
