      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.

      ... so much more interesting here we could not believe the things unfolding before our eyes here. But our time came close for us to have to continue and move on to the next challenge. We then found a taxi near the Colosseum and headed back to the airport for our next flight. As we boarded our flight we sadly stared out the thick glass windows and said our goodbyes to such a beautiful country. "So long till next time" we said. ...

How I'd love to have a time machine and travel to the times when those buildings and the ones in Forum Romanum were new and in use. As a teacher I can't help but think it would benefit all students of history to see places like Rome for themselves, so that ...

      Ruins, Palaces, Potholes and Porchetta

      ... to go to outdoor trattorias in the nearby hills to eat “porchetta alla romana” and rosemary-scented potatoes, all washed down by fresh chilled white wine [possibly a Frascati]. “In Porchetta” refers to a meat that is stuffed and cooked in the style of roast pork."

      We sampled porchetta several times, eating it like many of the locals do, sliced pork on a crisp bun with only a little stuffing added. Quite delicious and with ...
