Nice, affordable place with very nice staff. Good communications nearby. Clean rooms. Fridge in the room and a near by supermarket made it possible to store food and eat what and when we chose.

We are very happy with our stay!

We had booked to stay here for a week on the 7th July until the 14th. We read the reviews before going and started to really look forward to it.
Upon arrival to the Arena House, We were welcomed by Vincent, he is a wonderful man who gave us all sorts of information regarding places to see and transport to catch to get there.
Whilst staying here, our room was cleaned every day, with our towels being changed every 2-3 days.

The proximity to the Colloseum and transport links is second to none you are so close you could see the Colosseum within a 2 second walk. Everything is within walking distance from this wonderful hotel, The Pantheon, Trevi Fountain etc.

I would like to thank Vincent and his family for such a wonderful stay and we would certainly stay again if we return to Rome.

Arena, you were great. A splendid welcome, Lots of quality information about Rome that saved me lots of money, Very important to a Yorkshireman, large, clean, air conditioned room. Comfy bed and super shower. That's all bases covered for me. Then we get a great location, quiet but at the heart of everything, really good places to eat nearby especially the ones a bit further away from the Colloseum and free internet access on your computer, Brill!! When I return to Rome I will have no hesitation staying here again

I went back this year ... and my previous review stands. He stayed in a room with TV, air condicioned, mini-fridge, a computer with internet acess for free and the bathroom had a hairdryer.
For the breakfast they gave us a voucher to use in the hotel right next door. They serve a drink and a croissant.

Thanks Vicent and is wife for beeing so nice.

The location of this hotel is perfect for anyone visiting Rome. Just a 5 mins walk to the Colosseum. Once you check in, the staff provides you with complete information about the city, metro, tram and cheapest and comfortable mode of transport. We checked in early ie; before 2pm and they had our room ready without any extra cost. The lady and the gentleman at the reception are very sweet and helped us with everything.

love this hotel and would stay here again.

Room Tip: you would not want to say anything. They take care of everything.

Arena House is in a great location- just a 5 minute walk to the Colosseum. They were very sweet and helpful at check-in, and helped to arrange a cab for our very early morning departure (4:00am!). We were not able to enjoy the morning breakfast. The hotel is on a quiet street. We would recommend asking for a room at the end of the hall. Our room door was in the reception area, and we heard all of the conversations as people came back in.
We will definitely stay here again the next time we are in Rome! Very nice owners.

Room Tip: Ask for a room down the hall, or specify that you don't want the room in the reception area.

I had stayed in this establishment 7 years ago and was so pleased with the site that when my wife and I decided to go to Rome as part of our honeymoon I knew we would be staying at the Area House again. It is located literally next to the Colosseum. The staff is friendly and helpful. Though the breakfast is a bit spartan, the cleanliness, location and staff makes up for it. Would stay here again. Thanks Arena House!
