Review 1083: Dolce Roma, Colosseum View 2


Review by Juliana from US

2bed/2bath apartment near Colosseum, Rome


August - September 2004, 2 weeks


Natalia Bianchi's Colosseum View 2 apartment in Rome was beautiful. It was right down the street from the amazing Colosseum. It was also very close to multiple alimentaris (food shops), good restaurants, beautiful churches and two main metro stations. The area felt safe and was not too noisy.

Nearby Amenities

The apartment was within walking distance from many food shops, coffee shops, restaurants, etc. A car was not needed and in fact was even a bit of a hinderance. We walked and took the metro everywhere.

The House/Apartment

The building itself was older but all the apartments in it were newly renovated. There were ten apartments, five floors with two apartments to a floor.


It is a central city apartment with no pool or garden.

Furnishings/Cleanliness/Living Areas

The apartment was spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated. Natalia has personally decorated all of her apartments and painted murals on the walls. The apartment felt like home. After travelling through Italy for three months, staying in many different kinds of dwellings, this apartment was a welcome place.


The bed was big and comfortable. The bathrooms were small but more than suitable.


The kitchen was on the small side but what it lacked in size it more than made up for with utensils and pots and pans and we were able to make many fabulous meals.

Problems or Bonuses

The decorative paintings by the owner, Natalia, were beautiful. The comforting touches like flowers, fluffy pillows and other comforting items made the apartment all a wonderful surprise.

Agency and Representatives (and price)

The owner, Natalia, treated us like old friends. Her English is perfect. The apartment is better than its description on the internet. And, the price was more than fair.

Do you recommend this vacation rental to others?

Yes! I recommend this apartment 150%.

Things to do in this area

It's Rome! There are tons of things to do. The closest are the Colosseum and Roman Forum. Also, San Giovanni square and church. Those are within walking distance. Then the metro and buses take you anywhere else in Rome you want to go.
