Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Columbia Rome
Would never stay here again.
There are three positive things about this place, which stop me from giving it a rating of terrible.
First, it has a good location. Second, it has better than average breakfast (for Italy) and third, it has a lovely and friendly staff. The hotel itself is greatly lacking. The worse problem is the noise. The rooms must have walls and ceilings of paper. You hear every walk, every word, every creak, all the time. Its incredibly hard to get any rest.
The second problem is that it is not very clean. The carpets are old, worn and dirty, the bed comforter left much to be desired. The shower stall drain was plugged. I do not recommend this hotel. Go down the street on block and pay LESS to stay at the wonderful LIRICO
Convenient And Surprising
If you are looking for a quiet place to stay near the train station, give this place a try. We stayed at the hotel on May 28 and 29. The rooms are small and a bit austere but the showers are great and the air conditioning is excellent! The staff is multi-lingual and very helpful. When Katrina (I hope I've got your name right) found out that we were leaving at 5:30 AM, she packed a take away breakfast for us the night before - a very nice and unexpected gesture.
The hotel is very convenient for touring the Colosseum and the Forum. The hotel also has a nice roof top garden area where you can have a drink and some snacks. We had a very nice late night bottle of wine there and enjoyed the early summer evening weather.
The hotel is about 3 blocks from the train station and, at 150 euros per night, a good value in central Rome. Not a lot of "old world charm" in the building but a great staff and a pleasant and quiet place to sleep.

Travel Blogs from Rome
Greetings from our last day in Rome!
So we've done the Vatican, the Colosseum and the Forum now it was time to see the heart of Rome. When you look at the map everything looks spread out and far away but in reality nothing is really that far apart. It's just all curvy and busy so it feels farther apart. Yesterday Emery talked about us …
Today we traveled like Ancient Romans......well mostly! After we hopped on and off the Metro, we spent the rest of the day traveling by foot. This is Emery and since I took most of the pictures and declared today my favorite day in Rome, I have to write the blog post. So here goes....
So our second day in Rome was my favorite day. After …
We arrived in Rome last night after another very warm train ride from Assisi. At this point in the trip we were all feeling hot and tired and had planned that we would grab something for dinner in Assisi before boarding the train. That way we wouldn't have to eat when we got to Rome, just shower and bed. Well.......we did do …
Oh Rome probably one of, if not the grandest city in the world, also top of my list of places to visit. After leaving our Italian paradise in Lecce we took off on a long drive in a ride share. Outside of Rome we hit a snag and blew out a tire. 4 of us had never changed a tire before and had variable levels of knowledge on how to do it. During this experience we discovered if you wave your arms for help and clearly are in distress on the side of the road, Italians will not stop, ...
... of the eruption. The ~2000 vicitims were mostly slaves left to guard the houses. We saw the famous 'Cave Canum' (beware of the dog) mosaic in the entryway to the Casa del Poeta Tragico (house of the tragic poet). And of course we were lead to the old brothels - apparently in old Pompeii there were 'signs' (usually of a phallic variety) to indicate where to go! Then once in the brothel the friezes depict what to ...
