This apartment looks exactly like the photos and includes everything that is listed. We were greeted by Claudia's husband. He had a map for us and pointed out things to see and places to eat. The apartment was very clean and modern with full amenities including AC. There is a lot space to put stuff down (makeup, toiletries, etc.) and lots of closet space with mirrors and good lighting for getting ready. After doing a tour of Europe, we were relieved that the apartment was on the first floor so no need to lug bags up several flights of stairs. We were also impressed with the size of the bathroom.. it was quite big and even has a bidet. The wi-fi worked perfectly although I was never able to start the computer so I just used my phone.

The location was excellent– very close to Colosseum and other tourist spots. There is a bus stop a few houses down but the metro is a good 10-15 minute walk. Lots of restaurants nearby. Note for more conservative guests, there is a gay bar down the street. You have to walk to through there or go around the block to get to the Colosseum. On Saturday night there were a lot of men outside partying on the street. Some made a few comments as we walked by which made my husband a little uncomfortable but I just took it as a compliment.

Upon checkout, Claudia provided some lockers where we could leave our bags. This was great and being able to take the locker key worked out as we didn’t have to bother her again to get our bags. Forgot to mention also that Claudia arranged airport transport at a great price.

My only cons are– no washer, this would have been very helpful as my cousin’s luggage didn’t arrive and so had to wear their clothes for two days. Nearest stores and banks are about a 15-20 minute walk. Some of us got a few mosquito bites overnight so pack dryer sheets. Also, we had no cell phone service inside the apartment. I had to step out into the courtyard which is right outside the apartment door so not too big of a deal. And just some tips for the owner, it would be great to have a mirror for getting ready in the smaller room and maybe 1-2 more trash cans.

Overall, we were very pleased so I highly recommend this apartment. I will definitely stay here again the next time I visit Rome.

“Colosseum at the front door”
Reviewed 2 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

This apartment is in a fantastic location, you can see the Colosseum from the front door and is on the same street as the famous St Clemente Church which you have to go and see. We stayed here for 4 nights and used the metro some days which is in easy reach (10 mins max walk) or walked everywhere. The owners were really helpful, we met Roberto who on arrival pointed out all the best places to go plus some local hints on best Ice Cream and Pizzas which we tried and he was not joking. We would definitely come back to this apartment and would recommend it to anyone especially if you want to stay right in the centre of this area.

“Superb apartment in a great location”
Reviewed 28 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Well presented, very clean and comfortable apartment situated within walking distance of many major sights and metro and bus stops. The owners were very helpful with good communication throughout and the apartment was large enough for 2 adults and 3 teenagers. Plenty of restaurants and supermarkets nearby. Definitely recommended.

“Excellent stay for a family in Rome”
Reviewed 13 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We were traveling with our two boys (7.5 years old), and stayed at Casa Calpurnia for 5 nights - our entire trip to Rome. We loved it! It is a great apartment in a great location, very close to the Colosseum, with good transportation links. The main room was big and beautiful, the kids slept in a smaller room, and they have a great and a very well equipped kitchen. There are some nice restaurants and bars down the street, and Ice Cream - anything a kid needs in Rome....Price was very reasonable, and Claudia, the owner, was very helpful with arranging transportation to and from the airport. I highly recommend for couples and for small families staying in Rome.
