Live in comfort & style in the heart of Rome

Casa Arioli

My wife and I loved staying at the Ludo apartment at Casa Arioli. It was spacious, comfortable and clean. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom was spacious enough for a couple to use simultaneously and the kitchen had everything you could possibly need. The location is perfect for reaching virtually any destination in Rome. The Coliseum is just a couple of blocks away and popular sites such as the Trevi Fountain, the Spanish Steps and the Pantheon aren’t much further. There’s a great grocery store a block away that has all the typical grocery items you might need and a wide selection of wines and digestifs. Within walking distance, you will also find great restaurants, cafés, pastries & gelato and great place for porchetta sandwiches. The neighborhood is quite lively at night, but never were we disrupted by any noise.

Alessandra, the owner of this property, is a gracious host. She was warm, friendly and accommodating. She helped arrange our transfer from Fiumicino Airport and provided us with a useful list of local stores. The apartment had basic supplies such as coffee and tea and there was a lovely basket of fruit and snacks in the kitchen when we arrived. Alessandra invited us to her flat for drinks and introduced us to a good friend, who was kind enough to take us out one day for a look at Rome from the perspective of a local. We enjoyed dinner with Alessandra and her friends a couple of times and left with tears as we said goodbye to new friends. We can’t wait to return to Rome and when we do, we we look forward to see our new friends and staying at Casa Arioli.

If you are looking to stay in Rome in style and comfort, without paying hotel prices, you should book one of the apartments at Casa Arioli.

Perfect Apartment in Rome

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in the Ludo apartment for 4 nights in late May. The location is perfect as it is ~2 blocks from the Coliseum and central Rome. Alessandra is a wonderful host and is always available to answer questions or provide suggestions for your stay. The apartment has all of the amenities one would need and is very clean and spacious. On the fourth day of our stay, we decided that we needed a break from the city. We took a 50 min train from Rome Termani to Sperlonga (6.90 Euros each way PP), a small beach town often referred to as the Santorini of Italy. The town is small and situated on a hill above the beach.There are no streets in the town itself, only walkways. The beaches are great with crystal clear water and nice sand beaches. 13 Euros a day gets you an umberlla and two lounge chairs. I would highly recommend this short trip as a nice change of pace from the city.

Casa Arioli

  • 5 of 5

We were in the 1BDRM apt, Ceci, for a week. It was very clean and perfectly located; it's a block to the metro station and an easy walk to the Coliseum/Forum/Palatine Hill attractions which are amazing. Alessandra is lovely, concerned for your welfare and helpful in any way she can be. I would definitely recommend this apartment.

Owner's Response: Thank you, dear Barbara, I am always very happy and satisfied when my guests fond memories of their stay in my apartment. When I started this job, the first thing I tried to do, was to create, in the apartments, a very cozy yet familiar, so that every guest would feel at home, even if in another country! Your words show that I succeeded in my purpose! I'm glad for that and very happy to have met you! thanks Alessandra

Exceptional!! A true gem in Rome!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved staying in the Ludo. It was an exceptional location, incredibly clean and very nicely decorated. The owner is delightful and full of great advice to help you explore Rome. She has thought of every detail and you are truly at ease and in great comfort at her B&B. The breakfast was beautiful and most delicious.

She also provided a baby cot for our infant daughter- which was incredibly kind and ensured a good nights sleep for everyone!

I will definitely stay here again- I felt we were so well taken care of and I would much rather have the space and experience of staying at this beautiful B&B, rather than a less personal cramped hotel. We already miss Rome!

In the heart of the oldest neighborhood of Rome, Rione Monti, who gave birth to 'Julius Caesar'; in a building of 1800, in characteristic position, fully renovated, with charm and great care for detail. In a family atmosphere, but the same time discreet.

The location is central, a few meters from many cultural attractions, folk, commercial and monumental of the Eternal City. In a very cheerful and lively, full of clubs, bars, restaurants, craft workshops and small shops. On foot you can reach destinations such as the Colosseum, Piazza Venezia, the Roman Forum and the Palatine Hill, the Circus Maximus, the Markets of Trajan, the Domus Aurea, the Quirinal Palace, the Church of St. Peter in Chains (Michelangelo's Moses), the Opera House, Piazza Esedra, the Basilica of S. Maria Maggiore .... and much more!

You can get there easily from Termini Station, with only one subway stop B (Cavour stop) or with a few bus stops from Termini Station passing towards Via Cavour.

From Fiumicino Leonardo da Vinci, take the train / bus 'Leonardo Express' to Termini Station.

The building is situated on a quaint and picturesque staircase, so you can not access it directly from the road, but just go down 15 steps from Via Cavour, or salirne 10 from Via Leonina below.

The building in which the apartment is located on a picturesque and characteristic staircase (and it is for this reason that, unfortunately, we are unable to accommodate customers with disabilities in walking); and the apartment is on the first floor. Being in the city center, in a building of 1800 there is no lift. Few steps (10 to rise from Via Leonina or 15 down from Via Cavour).
