      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.

      ... we watched the rock at hip hop Chanel's for like 6 hours, randomly going out for pizza and coming back, we were just too ****** up to be out in the city, kind of a wasted day but **** we could do anything. This 30 shots fuuuuucked us up. Next day it was time to leave, we check out and we are now on a train to the floating city of Venice, we have a sick hotel booked so this should be good. Venice, more cocktails, let's ******* do ...

      The cliche "Rome was not built in a day", is such an understatement !!!! The Colosseo, also known as the Flavian Amphitheatre after Emperor Vespasian, founder of the Flavian Dynasty,was constructed from 72 AD. It was completed in 80 AD, the year after Vespasian's death.The unbelievably huge amphitheater was built on the site of Nero's artificial lake, part of Nero's huge park in the center of Rome. We wondered why it had got so run down, but apart from ...

      We pay to wander into the roman forum, colosseum and palatine hill but it is quite boring just looking at piles of brick. It is super hot outside so I grab a GF calzone (wasn't that amazing unfortunately but filled the spot) and then we mission it back to our accommodation before it gets ...

      ... build a new wide road - Via dei Fori Imperiali -from his palace to the colosseum - for that alone, he should be recorded as a vandal on the pages of history. By contrast, the construction of the "new" Metro Line C is 21 years behind schedule because of constant archaeological discoveries. A quick lunch at a stall on the road - and yet, still great food (focaccia with mushrooms and cheese, or chicken for the kids)! We had 1.30pm tickets for Domus Romane - THE best thing ...
