Matisse Colesseum is perfectly placed to all the major sights as the name suggests! The Colesseum literally not even ten minutes walk away and every other point of interest a good 10-15 walk away from each other and for this reason alone it's worth it!! On arrival we were greeted by Roberto who showed us around and marked out the sights and the BB on a map which istantly highlighted how close we were to everything. We hardly spent any money on public transport and the only time was when we visited Vatican City which a bit further away. The general standard of the BB is acceptable. Decent size rooms and bathroom. It's clean and comfortable and very secure but as its so centrally located you do tend to hear the hustle and bustle outside which some may see as a minus. Also Staff are not on the premises at all times. We saw cleaning staff in the morning and roberto pops in regularly to oversee things as he seems to rotate between this BB and the other MATISSE on via nazionale. Although there was no TV there was free WIFI and a 24 hour help yourself to whatever is available in the breakfast area which was handy when snacking or taking a break having coffee,yoghurt or pastry and as its free even more euros left to spend on ice cream!! ;)
For a short city break this place is ideal and so worth the money!!
