    Exceptional

    The B&B is on the 2nd floor of an apartment block. Our room at the front of the building was nicely decorated in a black and white theme and spotlessly clean and had all amenities you need (including ac and free Internet) . The kitchen was small, but we could make our own tea and coffee, which was a plus after our long walks in the city. We choose the Colosseum B&B because of its location in a quiet residential area two blocks from the Colosseum. There are lots of great restaurants nearby, which was another plus. We loved Hostaria I Clementini, the appetizers, like the fried ricotta, were especially good. Looking back at our stay I would surely recommend the Colosseum B&B to other travelers, because of its location and the value for money you get in this B&B.

    Better, larger sign on the front of the building

    We enjoyed our stay very much, the staff was extremely nice and went out of their way to help us, they gave a customized map of the area with all the hidden treasures on where to eat where to shop and what to see. Our room was comfortable and really nicely decorated, breakfast was served in a nice bar overlooking the Colosseum from the distance, it was not big but perfect to start the day with. The wifi internet really came handy for us to communicate with friends and family and upload some pictures at the end of the day. We ended up extending our stay by 2 more nights and luckily they had availability for us. Around the corner there is a park where every night during the summer there are live Jazz shows, the scenery was lovely the music enriching and you can dine or have wine out on the open while watching a show. Absolutely recommended!!! (Celimontana Jazz festival).

    I wish I had few more days there :(

    Very good

    Room is not very large but it has all you need: good television, air conditioner, good bathroom and confortable. Modern decoration. Excelent location (2 blocks away from the Colosseum and the metro). Staff very attemptive and gentle. Check out until 11:00 A.M.

    The hotel is in a residential building (the second floor is the hotel), there is no indication of the hotel. There is no elevator. There is no reception, you have to ring the bell for someone. Payment only in cash, don't accept credit card! The breakfast isn't in the hotel. You have to take it in a Caffe located 2 blocks away ( don't have to pay extra). However the breakfast was very good.

    I visit Rome on vacation almost every year and have always stayed in B&B's. that is why I knew that this property will be a large apartment that has been divided in to hotel rooms. I prefer to stay in this type of properties because you can get the same level of what a hotel offers for much less money. The Retrome B&B was exactly that! a beautifully decorated and highly comfortable room and bathroom for half the price of a hotel in this area. If you expect a reception and a lobby, then it is not the place for you but if, like me, you want a comfortable clean room in a great location, then, this place is ideal. Brteakfast is served in a caffe near by and the area is very nice in the evening with many option for dinning and going out. I will be back to this one!

    The location is really great. It is not so touristic, so you can have a bargain in the restaurants, and eat like the Roman eats and not feeling like a tourist. We really liked the elegant design of the room we had and especially to orange tiles at the bathroom. Really cool. The room was very clean, and the air condition functioned really well, which was a blessing as it was very warm in Rome.

    Fabulous

    It was a convenient self-catering flat-let....very close to many restaurants and bars and to the Colosseum itself. The room was ready, basic but finctional...the bathroom was similar, and the only problem was with the flushing of the toilet....but we managed ok. The bed was very comforatble and the room was very quiet, despite it's location. It would not suit everyone...but it suited us.

    It is not a hotel...just a small 'student-type' room/kitchenette and bathroom.....not luxury, but basic. Clean confortable and quiet.We are very flexible people. Easy to please and not quick to criticise....it would be easy to find faults here, but it met our needs and we managed very well. We would stay there again if in Rome....

    Very helpful staff, clean room, 10 minutes walk to metro, safe location, cheap residence.

    Awful building, feels like you stay in a deserted block of flat.

    The location is perfect. The place is quiet but 5 min from one of the most impressive and inspiring areas of Rome.

    The toilet was not working properly, annoying. Also the lock of the door was not really ok but everything went just fine.

    The apartments are created within a big apartment in a condominium. The room was small, the bathroom poorly supplied and the service hard to access.

    Superb

    we had a great stay in this place. we were upgraded in to a double room which had very nice design, was large spacious and brand new. the bed was very comfy. We really loved the relaxed area and the restaurants near by, we especially liked the fact that we could walk anywhere and felt very safe also to come back walking at night. breakfast was basic but nice and helped start the long day of walking and exploring in the right mood because it is served in a coffee bar in great piazza with a small church and the colosseum in the back-round. When arriving the building looks like an ordinary residential building but we buzzed them and a nice young guy went down and helped us with the luggage and checked us in. all in all it was a very good place to stay and a great experience to be in Rome and sleep by the Colosseum!

    I would prefer some more channels in the TV

    Too complicated procedure to get there. It's not a hotel, it's a flat. You pay cash, no recipt. You have to call them to meet you at the place. It's isolated.

    Great location, modern decor in ancient city. The room was comfortable.

    Difficulty finding staff in building, and would have liked more of a breakfast. We had to ask for soap in the bathroom.

    We liked only location

    It was very difficult to find a person in charge, who would give us the key,had to stay long time near the door, trying to call him.The room is very small, with double-deck bed, just to sleep.
