About David Colin
I was born and raised here in Rome. In the late 1960's, my father was one of the founders of the American University of Rome (AUR), and, indeed, the apartment was the administrative office and classroom (and impromptu party space) for AUR over a number of years. So, the apartment has been in my family for almost 50 years. Although I now live near Washington, DC, where I am an economist, I come back to Rome as often as possible. Despite all my time here, Rome continues to be a fascinating city that always has more to offer. I hope you find the Eternal City as welcoming and wonderful as I do.
David Colin purchased this Apartment in 1992

True Home Away From Home!!
This apartment has been carefully setup to make the guests immediately comfortable, while at the same time the owner has supplied for almost any special need that arises, whether it be printing a boarding pass, needing first-aid or good tourist/restaurant advice. The apartment is very attractive to be in and comfortable to live in, located perfectly for visitors to Rome, yet quiet, and the owner is immediately responsive to any problems that arise. We have stayed there three separate times, and are hoping for a fourth!
Very comfortable and attractive apartment. All needs have been thought about, owner is very responsive to any problems, and it truly becomes a "home away."
The Spanish Steps Apartment is stunning. The location is bar none. This was our third stay at the property and would stay no where else on future visits. David is the consummate property owner and provides every bit of information a tourist would want when visiting The Eternal City. Thank you, David, for another wonderful trip and lasting memories.
The apartment is well located in center of Rome in a nice building. It is exceptionally well equipped and well documented, both for using the apartment and advice for almost any needs nearby. The owner and manager are very responsive. We look forward to our next stay.
Delightful holiday haven
David has taken a lot of care to make a traveller's roman holiday experience a delight. This was the first trip with our children and it felt like home away from home. The apartment was beautifully presented, comfortable, clean, organised and provided detailed instructions and information about how to use both its amenities but also local sites and attractions. The beautiful artwork and dozens of books on rome are special too! Everything is neatly labelled and includes board games for the kids, welcoming supply of coffee and other food supplies,. It was perfectly situated to enable us to walk to all the main sites, grocery stores around the corner and the air conditioning was great after the July heat. We definitely recommend David's apartment and hope to stay again on any future trips to Rome. Thanks David!!!
In the center of it all!
We arrived early in the morning to this beautiful, spacious apartment. The kitchen was stocked with everything that we needed. The AC was wonderful since we arrived during a heat wave. The apartment is truly within walking distance to all of the major sights. We walked to the Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain, The Colosseum and museums. We took a short taxi ride to the Vatican. There are so many restaurants just feet away from this apartment. I can’t say enough about all the amenities within this apartment. The apt. manager brought bread, butter, ham, orange juice, water and wine upon our arrival. There are board games, movies, lots of guide books, an iPod full of music, a laptop with printer, umbrellas, yoga mats, and so much more. The owners have truly thought of everything that you might need. We loved staying here and hope to come back one day.
In the heart of the historic center, between the beautiful Spanish Steps and the famous Trevi fountain, the apartment is within walking distance of many of Rome's most famous sights and surrounded by restaurants and world-class shopping. Walk to the Colosseum, Roman Forum, and Capitoline museums, and even the Vatican. Excellent access to metro, taxis, and bus stops, and a good supermarket is around the corner. All the wonders of Rome are within easy reach. The area is upscale and safe, perfect for the traditional evening stroll after a fabulous meal, while enjoying an unforgettable gelato!
