The apartment is fine but nothing exceptional. Can get bus from airport to main termini for 4 euro one way. Then short metro ride `(2 stops) and a very short walk to apartment. Three "apartments" shared by small communal eating area. Can fit 5 people in one room which is difficult to find in Rome. Breakfast is adequate but gets boring with the same food day after day. Did try to accommodate children's "selective appetites" though...which was nice. Room had air coniditioning but no toiletries at all. Air coniditioning broke last day there. Soap dispenser broken. Email owners (with free wifi) during your stay with questions and they respond quickly. All communication before stay is done via email with quick responses. Small fridge in room. Television in room and all shows in Italian. Collosseum 15-20 minute walk and bus stops/metro close to hotel. Small food shops close by and a larger supermarket 15 minutes away. The place is fine, safe and clean but reviewers made it sound so exceptional so I guess we were expecting more.

So Monika and Pierdavide (the managers) make sure that Guests are given the proper startup for another dream-day in one of the most beautiful cities of the world.This B&B's located within walking distance of the Colosseum and it is the heart of the city. Consider that the Vatican is the farthest of all tourist attractions and it is only 3 kilometers away from Obelus, yet it can be reached with the underground train (the stop is around the block) and it is only 7 stops away (less than 8 minutes!!!) .People visit Rome for a multitude of reasons: the art, culture, food and wines. Relax and feel the magic in the air while walking the wonderful streets of The Eternal City. ... more less
