It was a lengthy search on Bookings.com and Tripadvisor for a clean, spacious room with roman character and charm. When we landed on La finestra sul Colosseo, and immediately felt that classic vs contemporary mix. We wrote to Aldo requesting a room for only two nights. He responded straight away.

The room was exactly how we imagined clean white sheets, high exposed brick ceilings and loads of SPACE!

Aldo prepares breakfast each morning and although our stay was shorter than most, we received a different selection of pastries each morning. It was not the expected brioche and cappuccino that you would normally get at most establishments.

Aldo is very helpful and genuinely wants to assist in offering advice and local knowledge as well as contacting his brother for directions in finding a place, which was recommended by friends.

Thank you for enriching our stay in Rome, and we wish you the very best in growing the B&B to 6 rooms.

My husband and I began our first trip to Italy with three nights at la finestra sul Colosseo. We were very pleased with our stay. Aldo met us in front of the building, and pointed out sights and places to eat on the map. We stayed in the room without a view, which was spacious and airy. It overlooks the courtyard, so also quiet. The bathroom is huge, though there aren't many surfaces to set your things. Wifi was available. Each morning Aldo served breakfast in the kitchen, which included a huge assortment of pastries, toast, jams, Nutella, yogurt, juice, and coffee drinks made to order. There are two metro stops nearby, and a bus that stops in front of the B&B. There was contruction for another metro line, but noise was not an issue.

Aldo was very helpful before our trip, replying to my many questions promptly. He also made an appointment for the Galleria Borghese for us, which was one of the highlights of our time in Rome.

I highly recommend la finestra sul Colosseo!

We found this lovely B&B on TripAdvisor and spent a fantastic week here at the beginning of July. Aldo was extremely helpful - from the booking process, to recommending restaurants and the best places to visit during our stay. The rooms are beautiful - very modern, spacious and clean. Breakfast each morning was fantastic, especially the selection of pastries and the wonderful coffee. The B&B is conveniently located for almost all of Rome's main sights by foot or metro. We would definitely recommend La Finestra sul Colosseo to family and friends and would love to return in the future!

I was taken here as part of my birthday present and was expecting fantastic things after hearing great reviews both from TA and also friends who had previously been. It is a lovely B&B and Aldo is as fantastic as everyone says. The place is clean, well situated, and is great for a weekend. However I did find the breakfast very limiting and as the kitchen is so small felt a little like we were at someones house rather then on holiday. I think however my expectation was just too high and as we usually stay in hotels, I think my view point was a little predjudice. However I would recommend this accommodation just do not expect hotel anonymity or the little finishing touches such as toiletries etc

The reviews were spot on! We loved this place..Aldo was exceptional with his reliability and communication. Emails were regular and responded to, when Aldo said he would do something for you ( eg. Book a restaurant, book a taxi etc) it was always done. The accommodation was modern, clean, spacious,very well located and the breakfasts were exceptional. Aldo's restaurant recommendations were very accurate as well. I would stay here all the time if in Rome! Thanks Aldo.

This b&b is just great. The location is awesome... Close to 2 metro stops and I believe the bus stops close by as well, although we didnt use the bus. There are a ton of great places to eat, and the "Old" section of Rome is all easily walkable from here. You really can see the colosseum from the window! The best part of the stay, however, is Aldo. He's so helpful, mapping out good sights, explaining metro & bus, recommending places to eat... Anything and everything. Our motto in Rome was "let's ask Aldo". Rome is an incrediblely wonderful city and this is certainly of of its gems :).
