The Good: The location. It's not central, but it is near the Colosseum, the Metro and numerous bars and restaurants. We walked to different places within the city, but the Metro or buses are a few minutes walk away. The room: we stayed in a ground floor room. The kitchen had a stove top coffee maker, ground coffee, salt, pepper... More

RetroRome is located very close to the Colloseum, and within walking distance to Monti, a very cool neighborhood with excellent boutique shopping and up-and-coming restaurants. The staff are very nice and helpful - they instantly upgraded me to the next best room. The rooms are comfortable, although the beautiful tiled floors get cold in the winter! The hotel certainly has... More

First and foremost, we were thrilled with the location and the reasonable price! A 5 minute walk from the coliseum, but in a neighborhood that we felt wasn't overly touristy. In the restaurants in the evening, you certainly heard more Italian than English. The apartment itself (#8) was quite large, with two bedrooms, a large sitting room, and a nice... More

We loved this hotel and wouldn't hesitate in recommending it. It made our stay in Rome so much more special. It is a very stylish but basic hotel. We appreciated the kitchen and the charming little roof terrace. The location couldn't have been better and the staff were so friendly and knowledgeable and gave us some brilliant bar and restaurant... More

The Retrome apartment was lovely, perfect location only 5 minutes away from the Colosseum and all the major ruins. Apartment was spacious, comfy beds, with everything you would need for a comfortable and retro-tastic stay. Staff were very helpful and very friendly. Cant fault this place at all.

We stayed at the Colloseum Garden II Apartment for 4 nights. It was excellent. The location is great with lots of restaurants and grocery stores just a short walk away. The Colloseum is around the corner, and the metro is about a 10 min walk away - not that we used it as we walked everywhere. The apartment is very... More

The apartment was really nice and centrally located, with a great atmosphere. It was well furnished and clean. It has two master bedrooms, a living room, nice bathroom and kitchen. I would highly recommend this accommodation because the price value is really good.

The hotel is situated nearby the Colosseum, which makes it a perfect place for visiting this + the other 'must see' attractions. The rooms are clean, spacious and decorated in a retro style. Angela is the friendly receptionist and through her we got excellent tips for restaurants and public transport. I highly recommend Retrome if you visit Rome.

Staying in Monti

Neighborhood Profile
Monti
Monti is Rome’s rebel yell. This neighborhood just west of Termini train station mixes grit with fun as it continues to fight for its reputation as a magnet for the artsy, alternative, and hipster. Every season, quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its cobblestone streets. The neighborhood supports unique and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at Piazza della Madonna dei Monti anytime after lunch and you'll always find something going on.
