      Historical Traveler Reviews Cristoforo Colombo Hotel Rome

      Great hotel, terrible location!

      from

      A wonderful hotel - clean and very well presented, with comfy beds and air conditioning. The restaurant didn't have the most enticing menu so we only ate there a couple of times (be warned however, that as far as we could tell, this was the only restuarant in the area), but the waiters were all very polite and accomodating. For the most part, however, the service provided by the front desk staff left something to be desired - apart from one lovely lady whose name I didn't catch, they weren't exactly welcoming or forthcoming with any information we needed, at times bordering on plain disinterested! In terms of travelling to the city centre, yes it was wearsome having to travel so far every morning and evening, but to be honest, considering the hotel is 4*, the rates are incredibly cheap, and as long as you don't mind a 15 minute walk to the metro, well worth the money. Incidentally, the road crossings really aren't that difficult - whilst it's not the most pedestrian friendly area, there are crossings which are easy to use. All in all, a bargain find, as long as you can overlook it's weaker points!

      Great Find!

      from

      A great 4*hotel, a little out of the way but with saving of over 100 euro per night on a in town hotel, well worth it. Rome has a good, cheap public transport system so hotel to centre of Rome about 15-20 mins. Even with taxi fare after late nights out, still a bargin. The hotel itself of a good standard, the pool is wonderful after a day spend walking in the sun. Definitley a good choice.

      Far from the city sights

      from

      Cristoforo Colombo is too far out from the city. The room were great. We did not mind walking to catch the bus and then the metro, but we should have been warned about the gypsies that ride the metro and steal your valuables or pick your pocket. So take the metro because it is faster, but avoid getting on between 4:00 pm and 8:00pm. Don't get on if it is too crowded. Wait for another train that is not so crowded.

      Out in the Farm

      from

      This hotel is very inaccessible. Although it claims to be near dining, shopping and entertainment venues, it is nowhere near anything. It also claims to be close to the Roman Ring Road. Big deal. There?s nothing there too. Taxi drivers are actually avoiding it. The cheapest way to go from this hotel to the tourist sites is by bus and then subway. We had to walk from the hotel for about 10 minutes to the nearest bus stop crossing on busy intersections and being very careful not to be hit by vehicles. The bus goes to the subway station (EUR Fermi), which is the second to the last station of the subway in that area. After a busy day walking through the interesting sites, one would like to go up to the hotel room and relax. This is not the case with this hotel. You have to take the subway to EUR Fermi station, then take the bus, and then walk for about 10 minutes before you reach your room.Although the rooms are cheaper compared to other hotels, this one is not worth it. Get a hotel, which is close to a subway station.

      A little Gem!!!

      from

      After having read some of the previous reviews, we were a little skeptical about this property. The room was booked through one of the discount travel providers. We could not have been more pleased! The hotel room (although not large by American standards) had recently been renovated and was stylish and immaculate. The bathroom was all in marble with a large jacuzzi tub and shower. Breakfast each morning was simple, yet delicious... and our waiter each morning was a pleasant delight. The hotel staff was generally very accomodating to our questions and needs. No, this site is not next to Trevi Fountain or the Spanish Steps...but our experience was enhanced by seeing a little more of Rome than what is just next to the typical sights. If you don't mind taking a short metro ride and experiencing the real city, this is the place!!!

      Great hotel

      from

      great hotel the staff were nice abnd friendly,there was a dark haired lady at the reception desk she was great

      Miles from anywhere!!!

      from

      The hotel booking service we reserved our rooms through stated that this hotel is "near the colloseum". Let me just say that it is not! We got a taxi from Termini, main train station in Rome and as the taxi passed the colloseum, I was expecting the driver to stop any minute. He did not. We drove for around 30 minutes and the fare was in excess of 20 euros (about 14). We arrived at the hotel and found the attendant at the reception desk very rude and unhelpful. While the room was nice enough and the restaurant OK (bit of a heavy emphasis on veal on the menu), we ended up checking out the next morning, hiking to the metro station, and checking into a city centre hotel. In the end up, we had a great holiday, but this would not have been the case had we stayed the whole 4 days in this hotel perched on a motorway in Outer Rome.

      Far Out from center city

      from

      The hotel itself is nicely appointed, beautiful rooms, nice beds, great bathrooms, good restaurant (weak breakfast). The major problem with this hotel is the location. As stated in another review, to get to any sightseeing locations you need to a) walk to the bus stop (actually 4 intersections of traffic); b) take the bus to the metro; c) take the metro to your destination. Once you get used to it it's ok, but for the amount of time wasted on trasportation, the price (which was great) isn't worth it. I won't stay here again.

      Loved the bathtub

      from

      My boyfriend and I stayed at the hotel between Sep 18-21 2003. The hotel itself in very nice, it looks exactly as it does in its pictures. It had a very big bathtub which can hold two, tested and proven! The staff is somewhat on the rude side but once you get over that they have a very good restaurant, excellent, worth the stay. However be warned that if you are going sight seeing,as we were, this may not be the place for you. The hotel sight we visited to book the hotel stated the hotel was near the attractions, it isn't. To get into the centre of Rome and hence the attractions you have to first make your way accross the three different highways, then find the bus stop. You then take the bus for about 5 minutes to get to the Metro Station. After about 20 minutes of riding the Metro you will reach the centre of Rome. Also be warned that the Metro stops running at 11pm and so do the busses, so you must get back in time. It is a nice hotel but I kept wishing we could have walked around all night without the hassel of running to catch the last bus or the fear of being killed trying to cross the highway late at night.

      Too far away from the city

      from

      While the hotel property is lovely, the hotel is located probably 3/4 of a mile from the Metro, and then another 30 minutes from downtown. If you want to see sheep and cows, this is the place to go. If you want to experience the city of Rome, don't book this hotel.

      Night staff were basically incompetent. They gave us incorrect information on where the Metro was located and hung up on us while trying to get directions to the hotel.

      Today was to be primarily spent at the Vatican City, but we walked there from the hotel so we could take in the sights. It was only a 30 minute walk after all.
      The old parts of Rome are amazing. Such enormous, grand buildings everywhere you turn not to mention the spectacular statues and fountains.

      We made our way without difficulty to St. Peter's Square.

This hill now has several museums and on the north side ( I think it is north) we find the Monument of Victor Emmanuel, Altare de la Patria, as it is called.More walking all over Rome, by now we are well acquainted with this section of the city and move about with some confidence.
