3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

It looked as a nice old and kind of romantic hotel at first. But the more you get to see the inside and use their service, you quickly realize this is not a 4* hotel by far. Rooms and beds are very simple (oldfashioned), although the view was truly amazing, especially Basilica by night. During the weekend there was a... More

My wife and I stayed at hotel Columbus in Rome in April 2014. At first glance, the hotel looked nice and pleasant. However, upon checking in, we quickly found the staff to expectionally rude and unhelpful. They had taken our money a few days in advance when we booked the room, but had no room for us on the arranged... More

This beautiful building has elegance befitting its former function as a papal residence - vaulted ceilings, portraits of clergy and antique furniture. The location is fabulous. A short walk to St. Peter's square and handy to hop on hop off buses. They put on a fine breakfast in a lovely room. The courtyard bar with its umbrellas and fountain is... More

I stayed in this hotel for 3 days in October. The hotel is in a superb location for sightseeing, on the doorstep of the Vatican's Piazza San Pietro, however apart from this fact and the nice friendly staff, there is not much else to talk about. Unfortunately this month was one of the hottest and the AC was not working.... More

We stay at Hotel Columbus every time that we are in Roma and have stayed there at least 15 to 20 times over the years. We love the location and their wonderful staff. Most recently, we stayed there from 08-10-2014 to 14-10-2014. What was different this visit is that both a wedding celebration during the day on 11-10-2014 and a... More

Stayed at this hotel for 2 nights too many. Location is excellent but the condition of the hotel was disappointing. Air did not work. Rugs were worn and dirty. Elevator slow and too small. Although location was very near to Vatican, the hotel was not worth staying in.

Just a few minutes walk on the road to St Peter's. We heard the Pope from our room on Sunday morning! A fifteenth century palace that retains its character, with huge public rooms and a large outdoor area. We had a drink in the bar one evening and wished we had had dinner in the restaurant, but we had already... More

The location of this Hotel is perfect if you want to stay at the door steps of the Vatican. However the hotel, is VERY old and almost looks like it will colapse. The decor is awful and stuck in the 60's. Room was also pretty bad. The breakfast was the worst of any Hotels I have eve stayed at. All... More
