When we arrived we were asked if we wanted to switch from the Via Nationale location to the Via Cavour location - and were happy to find that this was even a better location! It's very central and just a few minutes walking from the Colosseum and Forums, about a 10-15 minute walk to the Termini. The owner Roberto was... More

We were originally booked to stay at the Matisse Nationale and were skeptical initially when Roberto asked if we wanted to switch to the Matisse Colosseum however we are quite pleased we did. The location was incredible and we were literally minutes from the Colosseum!! Our window was into an alley that got was noisy at times however the windows... More

Matisse Colesseum is perfectly placed to all the major sights as the name suggests! The Colesseum literally not even ten minutes walk away and every other point of interest a good 10-15 walk away from each other and for this reason alone it's worth it!! On arrival we were greeted by Roberto who showed us around and marked out the... More

We've been reallocated here from Matisse Nazionale when we arrived there, but we were quite positive about that since the place has even better location. it is 5 min walk from Colloseum. 7-10 min walk from Piazza Venezia - and from there you can easily get to major tourist destinations like Trevi Fountain, Pantheon etc in like 10-20 minutes.

After reading all the good reviews on Trip Advisor,I booked an hotel for Nov 28, 2010 for 1 night at Matisse B&B. We arrived at 7PM and Roberto came down and told me that the Matisse B&B was shut down by the government temporary for a few months and the website automatically booked us and he was moving me to...

Matisse Coloseum is a really great place if you're looking for an hotel or bed & breakfast in the middle of Rome. It's not to luxurious but who needs that anyway when you're all day walking in the city. For instance: the Coloseum and the Forum are just around the corner. Roberto was really nice to us, we could even... More

This was my 5th stay at Matisse. Why it plunges you into the atmosphere and flavour of Rome. The accommodation adds to the atmosphere clean, safe, and spacious, within walking distance to Rome’s great monuments like the Colosseum. You will find your self surrounded by Rome’s ancient history. You’re located in the centre of Rome and just a stones throw... More

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.

Matisse Colosseum is modern elegance at its best. Marble floors humbly illuminate the entry and charming breakfast room, allowing guests to greet the day in serenity. Luminous guestrooms and spacious private bathrooms enable guests to revel in true comfort. Located in the epicenter of ancient Rome, guests are just steps away from the grandeur of the Colosseum, and the ruins of the Imperial and Roman forums. ... more   less
