We booked Gildas apartment for a 5 night stay based on the five star reviews here on Trip Advisor plus its proximity to the Colesseum.
The complex is through wide double wooden doors from Via Baccina into a marble entrance hall, then up a flight of stairs to the courtyard. The lift to the top floor leads to another wide marble hallway and the door to the apartment. Inside, the kitchen is along one wall with the terrace entrance in the middle. Full length sliding doors can either screen the living area and bedroom from the kitchen or, as we had then, open to give a very open- plan feel. The bathroom is at the end of the apartment with a big shower and the washing machine very cunningly hidden behind a sliding wooden panel. There are beautiful wooden ceilings as you are at the top of the building.
I totally loved this apartment. It was immaculately clean, beautifully decorated and very quiet. We did not realise when booking, what a great location it has in Monti, all the bars, restaurants and shops you could need are all within a 10 minute walk, if you wanted to go that far! The Piazza della Madonna dei Monti a couple of minutes away was our favourite place. Grab a bottle of beer and perch on the fountain steps chatting, "people watching" and taking in the whole atmosphere - perfect! A few steps home to calm & peace again.
Rome is far more beautiful than I realised and Gildas apartment was the perfect place.
Special thanks as well to Sara.
We will be back one day!

“Fantastic stay!!”
Reviewed April 23, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We stayed here for a week in April 2016 and absolutely loved the apartment. The kitchen is equipped with everything you need and the roof terrace is the perfect place to enjoy a glass of wine in the sun! The local area is buzzing with lovely restaurants, bars and cafes and is minutes away from some of the main sights of Rome. We'll definitely be returning!!!

“Charming apartment in a charming neighborhood near the Colosseum”
Reviewed March 24, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We had a wonderful time during the week we spent at this apartment. Gildas was extremely helpful, even taking delivery of a very large package I needed to have shipped to me before my arrival. We arrived in a downpour, but someone was waiting for us with an umbrella and showed us the way to the apartment. It was beautifully equipped, including some basics for cooking which we appreciated--and also including two umbrellas! The rooms are large and there's a lovely terrace where you can sit and enjoy yourself on a sunny day. (Yes, we did have some!) The location was fabulous as a base for exploring Rome, a five-minute walk from the Colosseum and within walking distance of many other sights; it's close to two Metro stops. The streets around the apartment have everything you need: many restaurants, pastry bars, nightspots, grocery stores, newspaper shops, even a dry cleaners. We would love to come back again someday.

“Excellent home base for a wonderful Roman vacation”
Reviewed March 17, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Great apartment with a fantastic location, blocks away from the Colosseum.
Just returned from a week long stay with my husband. Tho we took a cab from the airport, that was the only transportation we needed, as most attractions were about a 30 minute walk. The apartment is stylish, well equipped and located in a great neighborhood with a variety of restaurants, shops and fountain where people gather every night. Though you are close to everything, the apartment provides a quiet oasis from busy Rome. The private patio was beautiful. Should we ever get the chance to return to Rome, I would definitely book this apartment again. Gildas was spot on with his local recommendations and was a pleasure to deal with.

Great location, great amenities, all the comforts of home, what's not to love? this flat has everything. Not mentioned before (that I saw) the flat has an oven and the clothes washer is a small washer/dryer. Add to that a dishwasher, a beautiful terrace, a safe well secured building and all the best Rome has to offer within easy walking or bus/metro. I will be back to Rome someday and the first thing I will do when making my return plans will be to contact Gildas.

“Perfectly located vacation home in Rome”

Our stay at the Design Terrace Coliseum was quite good. We arrived early and Gildas allowed us to leave our luggage with the cleaning staff. The apartment was nice and well situated as well as quiet and we took advantage of some of the guest books left behind. We did not have any contact with Gildas during the trip but didn't really need to. The apartment had great windows that opened up to the courtyard. We did take advantage of the laundry and it was the best of the three apartments in terms of drying time. We did enjoy the deck although there weren't as many pillows as were shown in the photo. The shower was the best of the three showers we had on our Italy trip - a bit narrow for American standards but quite nice for European. We would recommend The Drunken Cow restaurant which was within walking distance of the place. We can't say enough about the location where you could wander to the Colosseum within five minutes and see its magical presence in the evening light.

“Sunny, spacious and quiet”
Reviewed October 29, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

The apartment is very well equipped, and designed. Lots of sun, and good breezes when the windows are open. The terrace is a delight, full of flowers, sunny and quiet. The location was perfect for us, as my husband grew up 2 blocks away, but it is also close to many of Rome's treasures, as well as great places to eat, shop and hang out. We spent a lot of time with friends and family, but could have easily eaten in more often, nothing was lacking to do so. All in all a wonderful stay.
