When we first arrived at Aklesia b&b it felt like a strange location, an obscure door on a corner, however we were taken upstairs (no lift!) to an amazingly beautiful room. The room was huge, well equipped, perfectly clean, great balcony, lovely air con, and views straight out on to the colosseum a 5 minute walk away. The best and most interesting room we stayed in during our trip around Italy.
The location and surrounding area turned out to be perfect - of course the colosseum but also the bohemian, relaxed feel to the bars and restaurants all around.
Aklesia couldn't do enough for us, a gracious host who wants to help you make the best of your stay in Rome. She has fantastic advice on local restaurants - take it as we had some of the best food ever at local Luzzi. It was amazing.
Breakfast was simple yet everything you need.
Tip for Rome: book the Vatican and colosseum online beforehand and save yourself some hellish queues - we felt like VIPs skipping the mammoth queue at the colosseum! More
