Very good location, near to Rome Forum
They do not accept Credit Cards, and there is no elevator (I have the apartment on the 3rd floor, and I have to take 4 big baggages by the stairs)
Very good design of room and bathroom. It was a 'DIY' breakfast - food left out (cereal, toast and cake) to prepare yourself. Coffee machine to make fresh coffee. This suited our needs. Roof terrace - very good Use of a laptop so that you can keep up to date with news/holiday plans/ e mail Very comfortable and very central. Excellent cafes/bistros nearby - especially the pizza place next door. 5 min walk to Colosseum or up to Via Nazionale for buses. Excellent Very helpful owner I would recommend this B&B without hesitation
Be warned - to get to the apartment you have to climb many steep stairs - I counted approx 70 No English news channel on TV
Clean and comfortable. Good price for the location. Shower was a reasonable size. Staff was friendly and helpful.
Only minor issues: Staff was small and available only during normal business hours; and, walls were thin on the inside so sounds could travel from room to room (could be a distractor if neighbors were loud, but we didn't have issues).
Staff were extremely polite and very helpful and obliging at all times, with excellent English. I even had the opportunity to email and ask questions beforehand. Roberta and Sabrina provided excellent information re.local eateries, authentic Roman cuisine etc. They made a real effort to coordinate arrangements so we could leave our bags on the last day and they could have organised transfers to and from the airport, if we had need them. Roberta arranged to have the safe in our room fixed by the next morning after our Sunday arrival. Others may wish to note that, once we were installed in the hotel, we were left to our own devices- which we quite liked. I.e Mobile phone numbers given by the staff, for emergencies etc. But no 24 hour desk etc. Plenty of towels provided but towels not changed and beds not made, which did not bother us for a 3 night stay. Hotel b&b Al Colosseo is in the heart of the Monti district. Monti is a relatively quiet (for Rome) family type, safe neighbourhood with good range of eateries budget to higher class nearby, together with some lovely and some funky shops. Fabulous ( best pizza ever in our opinion) pizza/pasta cafe/take away ("Milvio") right next door. Great little gelati shop across the little piazza in the next street. Easy walking distance from Cavour Metro subway on line B. One stop from Termini. Colosseum one block away. Could see it from hotel front door. Many major attractions within 1-1.5km radius on foot, or easily accessible by taxi, metro or buses from Via Nazionale or Termini station. Very convenient for us. Have stayed in Termini neighbourhood before, but frankly, if a bit of walking doesn't hurt, I felt this neighbourhood generally nicer and closer to many attractions on foot, with train and bus still accessible.Room and bathroom fresh and spotlessly clean, lovely modern decor, recently done.
My son, aged 15, found the size of the breakfast inadequate. (A coffee or a juice, plus croissant or sandwich.)Therefore, the voucher system for a local cafe down the road, was, to us, not ideal. Had we been more organised, I would have bought juice and some extra things as I am sure I would have been allowed to store them in the kitchenette fridge etc. Perhaps a time allowed for each room to use the kitchenette in the mornings? Also, maybe the hotel staff should outline to patrons, their policy re. Towel changing and room servicing. As I said, it did not bother us, but it may bother some. I would not let this preclude you from choosing this hotel, as they were so obliging- so ask if you want your room serviced! Hotel is on 3rd floor of building, as is the case with many many hotels in Europe, but no lift, which did not bother us at all, however, again, it may bother some. Despite these very few, minor aspects, which are far overshadowed by all the benefits listed above, (benefits which other European hotels do not provide for this price in this locality!) I would still highly recommend.
Everything was very nice, location was great, Colosseum is visible as soon as you step out onto the street, some good restaurants around and boutique shopping one street away. Lots of bars on the weekend with a young crowd.
We were made to change rooms 2nd day of our stay. Which was a bit of a hassle organising when to do it etc.. We were moved to a smaller room for the sake of some new customers, this kind of thing should be avoided by the hotel as much as possible.
The room was the perfect size for our family of three. The decor was awesome. The bedroom, kitchen and bathroom were very clean. The beds were very comfortable as well. The location of the b&b Colosseo was also perfect. Its location made visiting certain sites that much easier for us.I Would recommend the b&b Al Colosseo, to my friends and family, if they ever have the opportunity to see Rome, Italy.
The only thing we need not like about the b&b Al Colosseo, were the stairs we had to climb. It made carrying our luggage a little difficult.
Good bed, quiet room, central location
stairs, breakfast, presence of staff, level of service changing all the time
Very good location. The staff is very good.
Very poor breakfast Only coffee and cake, a lot of stairs becouse the elevator doesn't work . in the bathroom they have a problem with a hot water.
Location: good; 2 minutes walk to the Collosseum and you can walk to the Centro Historico to see all the famous sights. Also, the metro station is just 2 minutes walk away (you can use it to go to the Vatican museum etc.). Breakfast: is served in a bar 2 minutes away; croissant with a drink. Service: Fine, very friendly. Room: clean, modern, very comfortable.
The location and room were amazing. Very modern & newly renovated. There is an amazing roof top patio for viewing the Colosieum at night.
There was only one small complaint. The bathroom in our room had a horrible smell, like someone died in there... It was very bizzare as it got worse during night into the morning.
the location is great, quaint building.
I was very upset that they did not tell us before hand that the hotel was under renovation, although they did contact me to confirm arrival time, they could have warned us. The b& b is spread over one floor of a building, it is a small area, all rooms share a hallway, so the dust and dirt from the renovation in the hallway was impossible to escape inside the room. The floors were not clean. It seemed obvious that if there are renovations on going one ensurese the floors for incoming guests are clean! I feel that by failing to notify me before hand the adminsitration at Colosseo took away my choice and they affected the quality of what was going to be my 50th birthday celebration. Irrespective of the facilities, an adminisitration that does not consier the welfare of its guests should not be allowed to run a hotel business for profit.
Near metro. Easy to get to main attractions. Shower and water pressure was quite nice compare to other Italian b&b and hotels. Everything was new though quality of amenities were rather "ikea"-ish. High speed Wifi acrss for free. Bottle of waters, juices and some food are always available for free of charge.
Location is not clear. It is an residential building, so there is no sign outside or on buzzer. I had to wonder around the area for a half hour in order to figure it out. Also, the phone # listed on Booked.net is a wrong #. So there was no way of contacting the owner except emailing. House cleaner only made our bed, but not cleaning bathroom or changing towels for whole 3days I was staying. Accepts cash only.....
Location is good. Stuff friendly and English-speaking. There was a small kitchen in our room. We liked breakfast in bar near the hotel.
Modern, good location!
Was unable to tell it was the B&B Colosseo. No markers to identify the location. It was at the top of several flights of stairs, and wasn't a bed and breakfast. It was an apartment that was divided into a few smaller apartments with a common room.
The staff was amazing, nice location, nice breakfast, the room and the bathroom are very modern, wi-fi worked.
There was no elevator, but it wasn't a bog deal for us.
