Overview

About the property

Your ExtraLarge Property In The Heart Of Rome, five bedrooms, four bathrooms

NEW! In November the whole property will be totally renovated! New floor, best comfort and brand new bathrooms!Located in the heard of Rome, just an easy five-minute walk from the magnificent surroundings of the Coliseum, you will find our large and newly developed property. The property, which was completely renewed in 2016, consists of two adjacent apartments on the ground floor of an antique and distinguished palace which can only be described as quiet and peaceful – with the benefit of a doorman at your service!

Some years ago, I had conceived of this idea to be able to offer two apartments adjacent and united in the most splendid historical district of Rome just a hop, skip, and a jump away from the Coliseum and Roman Forum. I am so pleased to be able to say that now we can offer it you! These large and spacious vacation homes have been built to make everyone feel at home and yet still have the sense of being in a different city buzzing with culture and history.

However, what makes this property unique isn’t just its size or location, but also its accessibility. Since both properties are located on the ground floor they are great for the elderly or physically challenged. More importantly they are wheelchair accessible, which is very rare in Rome.

The two properties, while having separate entrances, are located next to one another being only divided by a wall! Although, they both share access to the same Roman courtyard which has an antique and traditional look. In total the two properties are about 180 meters in size and are both equipped with modern kitchens, high quality cookware, dining tables (one which can accommodate four people while the other is extendable seating close to twelve), refrigerators with freezers, microwaves, ovens, high-quality steel cutlery, wine glasses, dishwasher, and even a washing machine.

Available for all of our guests a total of five double bedrooms, two of which are accessible to those who are disabled, equipped with lcd Tv, led lighting system, timed air extractors, air conditioning and clean linen sheets and top-level comfortable and hypoallergenic mattresses for a good night’s sleep. At your disposal on your beds also hypoallergenic duvets of excellent italian quality.

Four bathrooms(one of which 100% wheelchair accessible equipped with large flat shower, showerchair, grabrails) complete with toilets, sinks, four showers and environmentally-friendly heat pump systems for hot water production. Also two modern sofa-beds are there and also available in the apartments a baby cot. All bedrooms and living rooms possess professional air conditioning system and timed air extractors, making it comfortable for all. Hygiene and cleanliness have always been of big importance to me and so I personally make sure that every room is immaculate

For your use would also be one living room with modern furniture designed in Italy. The room is equipped with an LCD TV, and even a well-stocked international library. You’ll also find LED lighting, timed air extractors, air-conditioning, and most importantly WiFi.

As mentioned before there is a doorman located at the entrance of the property throughout the day and night who is able to provide assistance to guests as needed, accommodate daily reception, as well as ensuring security for the building. We pride ourselves in the peace of mind that this affords our guests – especially with the added benefit of being in such a historic district!

We invite families, couples, or groups to stay with us because between the two apartments we can accommodate up to twelve people. This unique location promises to make your stay both enjoyable and memorable. You won’t have to worry about transportation between two different metro (subway) stops, as well as bus stops, which are vary in distance from being right outside the building or a short walk through the neighborhood.

THE ENTIRE PROPERTY IS OFFICIALLY AUTHORIZED AND LICENSED BY THE MUNCIPALITY OF ROME AND PROVIDED WITH INSURANCE, ALL THE SAFETY EQUIPMENT AND HYGIENE STANDARDS

We really do hope that you will choose to stay at our property when you make your visit to the Eternal City. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. Enjoy your stay with us, the staff of "Comfy at the Coliseum", Your Vacation Home away from Home

very nice, large and clean place, at the Coliseum

  • 5 of 5

an ideal place for large families and groups of friends, very clean and furnished with taste and attention. The strenghts are the large internal spaces, the five bedrooms, the four bathrooms and the positioning just a stone's throw from the Coliseum and the archeological area. Plus a competent and helpful doorman and friendly and available ownership. Suggested

What a great place for a holiday..at the Coliseum!

  • 5 of 5

The location is absolutely amazing, just a 3 minutes walking from the Coliseum, visible from the front door. The place is clean, well furnished with 4 bathrooms. Comfortable beds, a table capable to accommodate up to 13/14 people. Supermarkets, grocery stores, restaurants and bar sourround the building. kitchen is fully equiped with a dishwasher(when on holiday you just LOVE a dishwasher). the owner was available, kind and nice exactly as the doorman at our service during our stay. Air conditioning worked very well, especially considering the heat of last summer. We all loved this place and its location.

Nice. Close to coliseum

Drain in shower needs to be fixed. Larger coffee pot would be nice

Owner's Response: Dear jeanette thanks for your review. I am glad you liked my property and appreciated its location. I am sorry instead for the issue you had with the drain of the shower but i wonder why you have not contacted me in order to solve the problem. In fact, if you only had contacted me, the issue would have been solved in a few minutes..exactly as we did when you left. So, instead of rating my property with 3 stars, you could just send me a message. Concerning coffee pot we have a huge one in the kitchen..it is a Bialetti coffee pot, typical italian brand for a special coffee..i wonder how come you have not found it.

Awesome Place To Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay whilst in Rome! Salvatore and Ilaria are excellent hosts! He replied to my inquiry quickly and was a great help in getting our reservation set up. We had a group of nine and rented both units. Everyone was comfortable and we had plenty of room. This location is a short walk from the Termini, Metro stations and numerous tram and bus stops. Walking to most of the tourist locations is possible from this property. Overall, a great stay and great hosts!

Spacious and clean apartments! GREAT location!

  • 4 of 5

The entrance to the building is wonderful with an airy courtyard in front! Comparing both apartments, the smaller one is perfect for a couple or small family of three. The ambiance and decor were pleasant. Although the bathrooms were not as updated as I thought they would be, it didn't matter much, since we were in ROME and perfectly situated near the Colosseum. Also, the beds in Italy seem to be super hard, so be prepared for that.

As for the neighborhood, there is a delightful cafe (Cafe Iside) and then another on the corner that sells gelato. They both sell fabulous "melt in your mouth" croissants!

Beware of:

Many extremely personable solicitors who are, apparently, "leaving for Africa the next day to reunite with their children" roaming the parks and tourist areas that offer idiots like us "free trinkets". DO NOT ACCEPT THESE and walk away. Put simply, they expect something in return.

Also, expect to do a lot of walking in the heat. Most of the tours last ~3hrs, but this can be hard on those with mobility issues and heat intolerance. I mention this because the medical response teams can take a while to get to you, in case of an emergency, and defibrillators seem to be non-existent at some of the tourist areas. This is what we had witnessed while there - http://www.italianinsider.it/?q=node/5529. It was incredibly sad and our hearts go out to the family.

As for the apartments, though, they are spacious and clean, in a great location. We were very pleased!

Owner's Response: Dear Sian, i would like to thank you for staying at my property and believe me, you made my day with your nice and detailed review, i am happy you and your party had a super stay and i really looking forward to accommodating you again. Happiness and satisfaction of my guests is my priority, this is the reason why i and my staff all work very hard to make my guests stay comfortable and great, although we can not even comparate our simple holiday rental to a five stars hotel so perfection is something that will never belong to us and, actually, the fact that we are not a five stars hotel makes me even prouder of our hard work, cause paying just a few euros per day my guests have the chance to enjoy the city just a throw of stone from the Coliseum. So thank you for your review although i need to make a note in reply about bathrooms and beds. Bathrooms are exactly like the photos show, in fact the pictures are genuine and not "photoshopped" at all, a total of four bathrooms complete with showers, toilet, sink and bidet can be enough i guess...then i would like to spend a word about beds, they are all equiped with orthopedic mattresses of the highest quality, being suitable even for disabled people. Then the last words for my beloved city, Rome..a great city, maybe the most beautifull city of the world, with a huge free open air musuem..the only city which will let the visitors walk over thousends years of history..paying nothing for it.. so the heat you talk about(people love our italian climate) and some poor people begging for some coins to survive(problem common to all the big cities such as Paris, London, Madrid etc etc) are just a little price to pay..but in exchange you can enjoy the most fashinating city of the world! Let me also spend a good word for our medical response teams, a very hard job..and if someone risking his own life started walking under the sun of noon in july well...feeling sick is not a responsibility of our medical teams..i do not know which ambulance those people called but the emergency numbers 112 pr 118 both work very well, although lot of people call the emergency numbers even for a cold... and please, let me spend also a word for our hospitals and emergency areas, which are an excellence recognized all over the world, capable to take a good care of everybody, for free, which means even without a medical insurance! I am happy that at least you have enjoyed our "gelato" and our croissan Hope to see you again! And thanks again!
