A perfect choice for accessibility to Rome!

  • 5 of 5

We were so pleased with our stay at the apartment. We were 2 families staying together (7 people) and it was wonderful to have flexibility with accommodations. Bathrooms and kitchen are perfect for short or long stays. There are wonderful restaurants and bakeries in the area and you are only a five minute walk from the Colosseum. We will definitely recommend the apartment to friends!

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is located behind the Colosseum. We walked to and from the apartment during our stay without any concerns. We arrived early into room and was able to drop our luggage. The apartment was neat and clean. We had a group of nine. 6 adults and 3 children. Youngest was 12. The apartment has two bathrooms. A small but very accommodating kitchen area. And three separate living spaces. One bedroom has a king size bed. One bedroom has a king size bed and a twin. And then the large room has two twins and a queen sized bed. This area had a tv. We all slept great. There is a really good coffee shop just around the block that has wonderful Italian coffee and pastries. As well as a small market on the corner to buy waters,wine, beer and snacks. We used the Mytaxi app to get to a taxi to the Vatican one morning. Was picked up right outside of the apartment. Cost was about €16. You enter apartment through a large common Door which you will have a key. Then you go up one flight of stairs and there is an exterior door to the apartment, walk inside this area and then there is a door that actually enters your apartment. We had two sets of these keys which was nice since we were two families that had different itineraries around Rome. We had the owners set up transportation from airport to apartment. It was €60 for 5 of us in a clean Mercedes van.

I would recommend this apartment in Rome!

Large and spacious

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is very large as seen in pictures and has an excellent location. Owner was attentive and was waiting for us when we arrived. Thank you

I did not give it five stars because it lacked some details for a 5 star rating. When we arrived we asked everyone to take off their shoes as to not scuff the wood floors. We quickly learned that the floors were really dirty and it seemed the cleaning was not up to what we expect. The kitchen cabinets are somewhat old and one of the bathrooms always had a smell coming up from toilet even though the bathrooms were clean. Some more attention to detail would elevate this appartement.

Great location but poor service and amenities

  • 3 of 5

My family rented this apt during our stay in Rome. The location is amazing, just a few blocks from the Colosseum - 5-stars - however the service was poor. After our host checked us in, we discovered that the coffee pot provided was not functioning and was moldy. We contacted him right away to request a replacement or cleaning supplies (as we had purchased coffee to brew) and received a half-hearted "I'll look into it" . We never heard back from him. Also, there was no dishwashing soap and no extra towels provided even though we stayed for 5-nights. And with 8 people, we ran out of TP half way thru the site (you guessed it -- had to buy that too). If you book purely for the location I would recommend however I would think there are better choices that actually provide service to match the outstanding location.

“Otium Maecenatis et Neronis” is an elegant apartment situated in the heart of the central and historical Monti quarter on the first floor of a distinguished 1900's building of Via Mecenate 59.

The Colosseum, Roman Forum and Domus Aurea, that are literally a short walk from the front door of the building, will be the perfect starting point for any tour among the wonders of the eternal city, whether the guest decides to go on foot or by bus, or if he/she decides to use the handy underground (metropolitana) with its 'Vittorio Emanuele', “Cavour” or “Colosseo” stations, just 400 meters away. Adjacent to the building is the shopping area of Via Merulana.
