Overview

About the property

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

NEW! In November 2017 the whole property has been totally renewed! New floor, best comfort and brand new bathrooms! Located in the heart 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, consists of two portions of the same apartment with two independent entrances but also communicating through an internal door (according with the privacy needed you can chose if keep the door locked). Watch the video between the pictures! The property is 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 communicating 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! This large and spacious vacation home has 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 the property is located on the ground floor it is great for the elderly or physically challenged. More importantly it is wheelchair accessible, which is very rare in Rome.

The two real-estate portions, while having separate entrances, are located next to one another being only divided by a wall and connected by an internal door! Although, they both share access to the same Roman courtyard which has an antique and traditional look. In total the property is about 180 meters in size and is equipped with a modern kitchen(plus a kitchenette located in our triple bedroom, available on request and upon payment of a small extra of 20€ per day ), high quality cookware, dining tables (one, situated in the smaller portion, which can accommodate four people while the other, situated in the bigger portion, is extendable seating twelve), refrigerators with freezers, microwaves, oven, high-quality steel cutlery, wine glasses, dishwasher, and even a washing machine.

Available for all of our guests a total of five bedrooms, two of which are accessible to those who are disabled, and one single bedroom(or according to your needs four double bedrooms and one triple), all equipped with lcd Tv, led lighting system, timed air extractors, air conditioning, high efficiency heating system with radiators 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 is large, 100% wheelchair accessible equipped with large flat shower, showerchair, grabrails) complete with toilets, sinks, four showers and environmentally-friendly gas boiler for hot water production. Also two modern sofa-beds are there and also available in the apartment 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, heating system with radiators 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 united portions we can accommodate up to 13 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

Salvatore purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Salvatore chose San Giovanni

Some years ago, I had conceived of this idea to be able to offer two apartments adjacent, united and connected by an internal door (but with two different and independent entrances) 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! This large and spacious vacation home has 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

What makes this apartment unique

Up to 13 people, comfortably accommodated a few steps from the Coliseum, in 6 bedrooms(five double bedrooms and one single or, according to your needs, four double bedrooms and one triple), 1 kitchen(plus a kitchenette available on request and upon payment of a small extra of 20€ per day) and 1 livingroom with dining table capable to seat up to 12 adults, all equipped with Air Conditioning, Internet WiFi and flat TV lcd.

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. Watch the video of the property!

Perfect location, great spaces and comfort

  • 5 of 5

We spent a couple fo days at Sal's apartment. It was a great experience for our party of 10.

Its location is absolutely Amazing, it is at just a throw stone from the Coliseum, Roman Forum and the historycal area of the capital. The property is huge, large spaces, 6 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms...and it is clear that the owner takes a good care of the apartment and cares about the comfort and happiness of his guests. All the spaces are very clean, beds are comfortable and large. Sheets, bed linen and towels are clean and scented. We had a great stay at this apartment and really suggest it to large groups and multiple families

The home was very nice, clean and plenty of room for our group of 4 couples

  • 5 of 5

We loved how close it was to many attractions, cafes, restaurants and the metro. Very convenient! Also, Salvatore was very easy to work with. Our last day, they graciously let us stow our luggage for one more morning excursion before our driver came at 12:30 to take us to the cruise ship. We had a wonderful time!

Big apartment right near the colisseum

  • 4 of 5

Great location, and hosts could not have been more helpful and communicative. Woman who met us at the apartment was even nice enough to arrange for a car to take all 10 of to the airport the next morning. Apt. is nice and big for a big family. Just remember, as many have noted, that 3 of the bedrooms are adjoining. You need to walk through to get to the bathroom and to the living room.

Owner's Response: Dear sir, thanks for your nice review. It was a pleasure for us to accommodate you and your party. Just let me correct you regarding your description of our “3 bedrooms adjoining”and the fact that “you need to walk thorugh the bedrooms to reach bathrooms”. We have six bedrooms and four bathrooms available for our guests and at least 4 bedrooms have their own en suite so there is not need to walk through any of our bedrooms to reach a bathroom, exactly like a video available on this website shows. Plus the whole property has two entrances that make two portions of the same property totally independent. The livingroom then is in the middle of the property and to walk through any bedroom is not necessary to reach it. One suggestion to Winnie: your booking was just for one night, arrived in the late afternoon and left early the morning after so please, stay with us longer than just a few hours next time so that you can discover and appreciate all the prerogatives of our big property, that was capable to accommodate comfortly your party of 10 in the centre of Rome, at just a few steps from the Coliseum and, overall, that, for the whole apartment, made you spend how much you would have spent for one single bedroom in a hotel :-)

Roomy apartment at a fabulous location

  • 5 of 5

Five women stayed and LOVED this place. We each had a bedroom, which was phenomenal. We were close to a number of shops with pastries, coffee, groceries and walking distance to great restaurants. We walked to our tour of the Coliseum and Forum and at at a restaurant right across from the Coliseum in the evening. It was perfect for us. Salvatore was attentive to our needs and responded to all our requests for information. Highly recommend.

Great stay, perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in Rome. The apartment was ideal for 2 families - plenty of space, very clean and a fabulous location. Was amazing to walk out of front door to be able to view the Coliseum. Salvatore was always quick to respond to my questions and queries and was extremely helpful. Illaria, who checked us in to the accommodation was absolutely delightful and extremely welcoming. Would definitely recommend this apartment if you’re planning a sight seeing visit to Rome. Only small suggestions...but would be good to have a lock on bathroom doors and also the toilet in main bathroom didn’t flush very well and became blocked quickly.

Other than that, everything was perfect and we’d certainly stay here again in the future.

Amazing place with just a few small things to note

  • 4 of 5

First of all, we had an amazing time staying here. This apartment was able to fit my adult family of 8, and you simply can't beat the location. I did extensive research, and for the price I don't think you could possibly get a better deal within walking distance to all the major sights.

Helpful tip #1: the shower water temperature in the master bedroom bathroom at the end of the "add-on" apartment was unacceptable. For two nights my parents took mostly cold showers, despite no one else taking showers at the time. I recommend avoiding that bathroom for showers completely and instead using the other ones, as they seemed to be fine.

Helpful tip #2: Note that the "add-on" portion of the apartment is railroad style. In order to get to the master bedroom from the main living room/kitchen, you must walk through two other bedrooms. This was fine for my family, but might not work for those seeking more privacy.

Owner's Response: Dear Michael, thanks for your nice review and for staying at my property. I am sorry for the two "cold showers that your parents had to take", but i didn't receive any communication about it while you were there, if you had emailed me i would have immediatly fixed the problem which we have noticed on the day of your departure and immediatly fixed..it was, indeed, a small defective faucet that has been replaced. Now the 4 bathrooms work properly and perfectly ensuring hot water to all four bathrooms. concerning your "helpful tip #2" i do not understand what you mean with "Railroad style". That portion of our property is furnished with excellent quality furnishings which you can like it or not but its excellent quality can not be questioned. concerning the fact that "to get the master bedroom from the main livingroom you must walk through two other bedrooms" it is just partially true, in fact the smaller portion of the apartment has also an its independent entrance, so you have two options to reach that portion of the apartment, through one master bedroom or through its independent entrance, which ensures all the privacy needed. What i will never been tired of saying is: We are just a private rental, which ensure large spaces, 6 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, 1 livingroom and a kitchen plus comfort, a great location and cleaning at a very competitive price but we can not be perfect...otherwise it would not be a simple roliday rental but a 6 Stars Hotel..that would cost at least ten times more! ;-) Thanks for staying with us!
