Reviewed 22 August 2017

This cute boutique hotel (only 8 rooms) really served us well during our visit to Rome. The location - within walking distance of the coliseum - is ideal and close to transit lines, taxis and bus tour pick ups. The room was very clean, good air conditioning and large enough for our group of three. Noemi took care of all of our needs from locating nearby restaurants, best sites for visits, provision of maps, cleaning, etc. She really manages the whole operation with a smile and helpful attitude. We really enjoyed our time.
One tip - the entrance to the hotel is on the side of the building alongside the ramp (in case Noemi doesn't see you first).

Clean, central location near Colosseo, with air conditioning and wifi. All the main sights are in easy walking distance, plus, Noemi provides maps and recommendations.
Perfect for solo travellers (the area feels very safe). Neomi is a wonderful host; professional, friendly and really helpful. I felt like I had a friend in Rome even though I was traveling solo.
You won't regret booking at Arena House.

Noemi was great, she initiated contact to confirm check in time and was very helpful throughout our stay.The room was clean and tidy and had everything we needed.
We were in a quiet street a 10 minute walk from the Coloseum with a supermarket in the next street with plenty of eating places nearby.
We were very happy with our stay and can recommend Arena House.

Noemi was fabulous and very welcoming. She takes all the bookings, works the front desk and does all the cleaning. The rooms were modern and very clean. From previous reviews we were worried about smoking but no evidence of this during our stay and no smoking smells through the ventilation system. The rooms were quite large, bed comfortable and extra towels were willingly provided on request. There is not a 24 hour reception here - Noemi lives away from the building so anyone arriving out of hours rings a main bell and awakens other hotel guests (the bell was rung multiple times at 2am and we found out the following day they had then phoned Noemi having missed a 10pm pre-arranged check-in). The walls are also this so all doors can be heard opening and other guests can be heard arriving and leaving. This did not really bother us but I can see it could upset others depending when they arrive/leave building. Also at the moment, though not the fault of the hotel, there is building work next door - builders arrive before 7am and can clearly be heard talking and they start machines at 7am. No sleep in here! The location is close to the Colosseum (end of the street) and Noemi is a lovely host. Would happily return.

We were so happy to find this lovely place to stay for our recent visit to Rome. It is tucked away in a quiet side street very close to the Colosseum and provides a delightful refuge from the hustle and bustle of the city. The Metro is close by so it is very conveniently placed and surrounded by lots of excellent cafes and restaurants, again all off the main streets. There are no public rooms but the bedrooms are elegant and comfortable with a fridge and air conditioning. We were warmly greeted by Noemi who looked after us superbly throughout our stay. Nothing was too much trouble and we came back each day to our spotlessly clean room, again thanks to Noemi. We are happy to recommend this delightful guest house and will unhesitatingly stay here again.
