Colosseo In
Ranked #189 of 1,166 Speciality Lodging in Rome
Reviewed 25 June 2014

Perfectly clean, quiet guest house. Comfortable bed, suitably sized room, spotless bathroom with plenty of towels. There are kettle in the room and coffee machine in corridor. Coffee, water and snacks are supplied every day. Kitchen with microwave oven and toaster can be used for breakfasts, all day long access to the terrace.

The only minus for those who do not use AC and prefer to sleep with open windows is noise from the busy street.

If you would like to eat italian food with italian people then you will find few restaurants, breakfast points and gelateries on enclosed streets via panisperma and serpenti.

We walked to the all attractions. Most of them are in 10- 20 min walk and it takes about 30-40 min to get to the Vatican and Villa Borgheze.

Dear Tai_Ismay,

Thank you for writing about your experience.

You are right with your remark that you went out to enjoy your dinner amongst the Italians; our structure is situated in Rione Monte which is also a favorite of local people.
Locals know where to go to find the best places to eat, drink and have fun.

I hope to welcome you again soon.

Kind regards, Janine

Please look no further than the Colosseoin. It is in a fantastic location with a view from the window onto the main street where there is always something happening. Shut the windows and there is absolute quiet for sleeping. The terrace has views of the Colosseum and its fantastic to just sit and relax and soak in the view. Janine, the owner, speaks perfect English and her hospitality is amazing. She will go out of her way to help with tours, taxis etc. She organised a fantastic pushbike ride through all the backstreets for us to show us the best of Rome without the typical tourist bus. I will remember my stay in Rome forever thanks to her hospitality. She also organised and paid for a tour on our behalf of a tour of the Sistine Chapel with no wait on our return before our flight home. The rooms are amazingly clean and comfortable. The expresso coffee is fantastic too! Its just perfect. Lastly Janine organized a taxi to pick us up and transport us to the train station for our trip to the Amalfi Coast. Nothing is too much trouble for her.

This is the perfect B&B, very clean with modern interior and appliances. Location cannot be better, just a short walk to the forum and coliseum. Janine is the best host ever, very warm, genuinely kind and helpful and attentive to details. My daughters and I really felt at home. Thank you so much for all the nice attentions. We especially enjoyed the first breakfast upon arrival on the little terrace overlooking the coliseum and splendid view of the sunrise on the city roofs. We hope to come back soon !

Dear French Connection,
Thank you for your kind words and it pleases us to hear that you and your daughters have fond memories of your stay with us.
You observed it right that I thorougly enjoy meeting people from all kinds of different countries and that my aim is to make them feel at home away from home. So when you tell us that you felt at home that is just wonerful.
It will be our pleasure to welcome you again soon.

What a wonderful find. Janine could not have been more helpful. She arranged for train tickets, car pick up at the airport saving us money, cabs arriving at the door, tours etc. and all with a smile. Great location, colosseum just around the corner. Don't be fooled by the outside, interior brand new and done first class. She was in constant contact via email for all arrangements. It was on oasis after a long hot day of touring. If I'm in Rome again this is we're I will stay.

I stayed in the violet room. Absolutely lovely. WiFi connection was great. This guesthouse is spotless and very private. Janine was a great help; even going so far as arranging tickets and reservations for outings. I didn't realize that I needed a reservation for the Borghese Gallery so she organized everything. A real gem.

Room Tip: I liked the lovely violet room even thought it was on the other side of the Colosseum view.

Dear Shelly O,

Thank you for your nice words. Taking good care of you was our pleasure.
For what the Wi-Fi is concerned: we once had problems directing a guest to the repeaters situated in the corridor, but we have learned and now we ask our guests to connect to the EXT and all is fine.
We look forward to welcoming you again as you said you will have to come back soon to finish/redo your tour of the Galleria Borghese.

I was traveling to Rome with my family for the first time. We didn't have to worry about a thing, transportation to and from the airport was arranged for us, tours of the Vatican and the colosseum were set up and we just had to meet our guide and it was the best tour I have ever been on. The rooms were extremely clean and very nice. The bathroom was a good size and clean as well. The location was amazing, within walking distance to everything! It was quiet at night so we were alike to get a good nights rest. When I return to Rome someday this is the only place I will stay, the price is very good and well worth our money. It was a very fun experience with everything taken care of for us and a beautiful hotel.

Room Tip: I stayed in the triple room, great view, we each had a single bed.

My wife and I booked a last minute getaway - literally last minute (we decided at 6 pm to go to Rome from Paris on an 8:30 pm flight) - and we picked the C.I. sight unseen. Because of a snafu on our end, we ended up spending our first night at a place more akin to a youth hostel across the street from Termini.

We arrived at CI the next morning - and were greeted by Janine - and much to our chagrin, learned that she had waited at the property all night the previous evening for us to arrive! She was so gracious and apologetic for our mixup the night before, and not only checked us in immediately, but was able to get the booking company to refund us our room from the night before. I cannot say enough good things about her - and the incredible lengths to which she went to make our experience as wonderful as it was.

The Inn itself is just five rooms on the top floor of 310 Via Cavour (the floors below are two other hotels). The front rooms overlook the Via Cavour - if you look south and left, you can see the Forum - while the back ones give you a glimpse of the Colosseum. The beds are very comfortable, the rooms very clean (and w/ shutters drawn, can be made very dark and quiet), and we thought the place was a real bargain at 160 euros a night.

The Inn is perhaps 200 yards from the Cavour metro station, which made it really convenient to cover any part of Rome really, and is easy walking distance to the Forum, Colosseum and Piazza Venezia. Lots of al fresco restaurants below as well. Janine is a huge plus - she is fluent in English and has a genuine understanding of customer service and I'm grateful to know that the next time we come to Rome, we won't have to worry about searching for a place to stay.

Room Tip: The Inn occupies the 5th and top floor of 310 Via Cavour - front side rooms overlook the street, bac...
