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 got to the Trevi fountain to find that it was closed and under construction which was extremely disappointing. We left there and made our way to the most famous gelato shop in Rome, which rightfully earned its name as it was the most delicious thing ever. We slowly walked around before finally making our way to the metro to get to the airport. It was a good thing we left plenty of time to get to the airport because it ended up being extremely complicated to get to. ...
... day 2. The kids were more impressed than we expected, although clearly not enough to make it to their blog entries. The most memorable paintings? ....the ones where Andy and his friends "relieved" themselves on the canvas to see what effect this would ...
... came all the way up to where we were. WE SAW THE REAL LIVE POPE!! So much excitement! After he headed off back towards the vat, we went off and found a little restaurant for dinner. Al fresco, as usual! We had an ice cream for pudding before heading back towards the hotel.. When we walked back past the Vatican City (again!! .. But we do have to walk past it to get to the hotel!) there was still music playing and things ...
... songs (Stairway to Heaven, Comfortably Numb, etc.). Does it get any better than that? What an amazing atmosphere to enjoy a final meal in Roma!
Our final stop of the day was – of course – our favourite gelateria; our guy recognized us again, and we left him a tip to say thanks and farewell. Then, back to the apartment to pack up and get ready for the next leg of the journey.
Hard to believe our roads will be leading away from Rome after ...
... a double for the three of us, so it's going to be cozy. The room ended up being tiny, but it was still much better than a hostel. We opened a bottle of wine, Michelle hopped into the shower and by the time she was done with her shower, Kevin and I finished the bottle of wine. She wasn't too happy she didn't get to try any, but she shouldn't have taken an hour in the shower. Well she took all the hot water, so that's our pay back ...
