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.

... Brook! After a short plane ride and long bus trip we made it to the convent we are staying in. From what we can see in the dark the grounds look beautiful & it is right next door to Vatican City! The Sisters who we have met so far are all lovely! They gave us directions to a restaurant for dinner but we think we took a wrong turn somewhere because we are sure we aren't sitting in the right restaurant! Looking forward to exploring Rome ...
... They’re a charity, and they rely on volunteers to help, aiming to sterilise and vaccinate the cats in their care, re-home them if possible, and if the animals are too feral, then they allow them to live in the ruins, where they get to bask in the sun all day. It’s absolutely amazing, and you’d never know the shelter was there if you weren’t looking for it. The building itself is tiny, and was packed with people, and they allow you to ...
... had planned to start with the Colloseum but it was closed.
So we went to another expensive place, Capitoline museum. We had trouble finding it, but wandering Rome is fun in any weather. We ended up visiting Venetian Plaza and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier first. From there it was an easy short walk to the museum. We did get to skip a pretty long line and got in free here.
Following Rick Steves book, we saw the ...
... the shopping therapy till the end. Actually, in the end, less was being purchased than anticipated so there was lots of walking and looking but very little being done for the Italian economy, apart from keen support for the wining and dining sector. These continued to get our full attention and one restaurant [Ristorante Ottimo near the Vatican in Via Cola Di Rienzo] came up trumps for Sunday lunch. Trish had Seafood soup [mussels and clams] ...
... We were stressed and it was raining, and two hours later we finally made it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We couldn't wait to get in! And when we did our heads dropped! It was tiny, not like a department store at all and in the supermarket section half the shelves were empty and we left with one chocolate bar and a bottle of water! We did manage to buy some Christmas decorations from the department store section above it, but besides them, we ...
