“Excellent apartment and very near the Colosseum”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

We stayed in the Apollo II apartment. It's on the third floor of the building and there's no lift, but if you can manage the stairs it's an excellent place to stay. The sitting room is comfortable and airy, and the kitchen has all the facilities you need. One of the bedrooms is effectively in a separate mini-apartment with its own bathroom downstairs - which is ideal if you want a little privacy. The second bedroom is a little less private as it is on a mezzanine floor above the sitting room! This wasn't a problem for us, though, and both beds were very comfortable. You can't fault the location, which is very near the Colosseum, with plenty of restaurants nearby. The metro station near the Colosseum means that the rest of Rome is also within easy reach. All in all Apollo II is a very relaxing place to stay and an excellent base from which to explore the city.

Great location, just a stones throw from the colosseum and many great local restaurants and cafes at your doorstep. Highly reccomend this facility. We are a family of five and found this venue to be more than adequate for our needs. The staff checking us in were very friendly and helpful and gave us some options for airport transport as well of indications of expected taxi fares around the city. Also provided maps and tour info. The apartments are extremely comfortable with the only drawback being the three flights of stairs that you need to climb to reach the apartment. Although this is worth it for the price and location. There is no lift so elderly and those with bad knees and such be warned. I / we all - found this apartment (loft style) very charming and well equiped. Would definately return again...

Great location, with walking distance to the Colosseum and the Metro. Two things to keep in mind are that the office to pick up the keys is at a different location, so ask the driver to wait while you sort things out or it's a half hour walk or a hike to the metro probably with all your luggage. They will gladly call a taxi but it's a half hour wait. Internet is at a additional cost and not always avalible, it's to be arranged at the office at the time of key pick up. It was only one of few apartments avalible for rent for only one night, most require at least a two day occupancy. All of us loved the flat and would gladly stay there again when visiting Rome.

The apartment was very nice and clean and great location.
Did not have an elevator !!!! Pain to get to third floor . We were 6 people and 6 suit cases !!!
We had to make a last minute booking . They did not tell us the location . We dragged everybody to the office , unloaded our luggage from and then we were told it is somewhere else !!!!! That was not fun at all :-((((
It fits 6 people . I do not recommend it if you are a famiy with kids and luggage , but a good choice if you are young, travelling light and do not mind being on the third , which is really the 4th version of a U.S one and not having an elevator !
