Overview

About the property

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

NEW! In 2018 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

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!

What makes this apartment unique

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.

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

Fabulous location and responsive owners

  • 5 of 5

The location of the apartment is great- a few blocks from colisseum and a block from the bus stop. We used a bus a lot to get to trastevere. There are many local tiny markets and galaterias as well. Not a great bar scene but that’s ok! Quiet at night. The owners were very responsive and gave use excellent tips for our stay. Also it was awesome to have four bathrooms!! Never had trouble with water temperature. Every room has air conditioners so we were comfortable.

The setup in the living room isn’t great - more couches would be helpful as the apartment is for large groups and one couch was tiny. The bedroom set up is a little odd - you have to pass through bedrooms to get to others so you need to be careful not to surprise each other. Other than that, everything was perfect!

Outstanding location and care. By owner

  • 5 of 5

Walking distance to Colossium and other historic sites. Bakery next door and produce shop. Grocery store about 15 min walk away . We had 11 in our party but had beds, towels and hot water for all . Washing machine was a great help in the July warmth. I would recommend this rental!

Comfy at the Colosseum is very comfortable and pleasant

  • 4 of 5

The location is very convenient to most everything. Nice to be on ground floor, and it was very clean. We had a family group of 11 and we had plenty of room. Air conditioner worked great and lots of bathrooms that is a necessity for 11. Hosts met with us when we arrived and we’re very accommodating. Thank you so much. Would definitely come back again.

Safe, quiet and close to attractions

  • 5 of 5

A group of 8 adults stayed here for 5 nights in early June 2018. There were many positive attributes of this apartment. Spacious, clean, fantastic air conditioning, really quiet, close to several great places to eat, small markets steps away, the bus stop just outside the building, and a short walk to two subway stops. A small washing machine and a drying rack was great to have. Excellent response from the owner, and the woman who greeted us at check in was extremely helpful. Comfortable beds, and more beds in the apartment than we needed for a group our size. There were a few things that were not ideal, but these may or may not be an issue for others. I list these only to help people better understand the arrangement. One set of towels per person for the entire stay was not ideal because the towels wouldn’t dry all the way over night, thus we would have liked a few extra towels. The WiFi doesn’t work in one of the bedrooms (farthest from the router), since that was the room my husband and I used, I wasn’t thrilled, but once I knew that was the situation, I planned my phone usage around when I was in the main area. One hair dryer to share for the entire apartment made for some extra scheduling with our group. The keys have to be used to lock and unlock the exit doors from the inside and outside-you cannot lock the door from the inside without a key. Since we were all adults, not always doing the same thing at the same time, this required extra scheduling with our group and some inconvenience. We figured it out, but our group felt this was inconvenient. (There are two sets of keys, but the keys don’t lock/unlock both external doors). No ice tray to make any ice and it was hard to find ice nearby. Three of the bedrooms connect and two of the three don’t have their own access to the main kitchen and living area. Our bedroom’s door opened to another bedroom, and that bedroom’s door connected to the third bedroom, and the third bedroom’s door then opened to the main area. The middle room in this three bedroom configuration does have a door to the outside courtyard as well. The other two bedrooms open directly to the main area and are not connected. Overall, a wonderful place that we all enjoyed!

We are happy you have appreciated our apartment and its location, its cleaness, its spaces and its confort. Concerning inconveniences we are very sorry about them but what we always say is...we are not perfect, we do not sell six stars hotel’s stay...we just offer our guests a genuine, clean and convenient place for their roman holiday.. Really hope to see you and your party again!

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!
