This hotel is just one or two blocks from St Peter's Square and the vatican. In fact, its on the main street that leads o the vatican. They have private parking in an inside courtyard. Our car is about 2.5 m tall and we could easily drive through the entranceway with plenty of room to spare. The hotel has a... More

My wife, daughter, and I stayed at the Columbus Hotel from 6/29-7/3 2014. The location of this hotel is AWESOME. Just a couple of buildings down from St. Peter's Square, very close to ATM's, and major bus routes. This was our second stay in Rome, the first trip we stayed too far away from the city center, and this location... More

This was my third time in Rome and I was excited to be staying so close to St. Peter's. The room I received was fair and breakfast was good and ample. The staff is another matter all together. This is a hotel where you leave your key with the front desk if you are going out. I dropped off my... More

Beware. Unless your needs are backpacker level, look further. I consider this place to be shelter only. My room was dark and nasty with no view, WW2 television, no air and no breeze, that was in May. Threadbare linens, filthy carpet. However, I did see other rooms with tile floors, decent bathrooms, good towels and air conditioning. Not sure how... More

This was the second time in Rome for us, and both times we stayed here. We would absolutely do it again. For us, the proximity to St. Peter's (and the view up via della Conciliazione to the majestic dome) goes a long way. We looked at a couple other nearby options before booking this time, but we love the history... More

This hotel was originally built as a cloister and we can feel its glimpse everywhere in the hotel. The staffs at the front desk were all very nice and offered good help. We can have breakfast in a restaurant whose ceiing was painted by frascos. We can walk to the piazza Saint-Pietro in few minutes and to the Vatican Museums... More

The hotel is gorgeous, different rooms with frescos a good example is the restaurant. Gorgeous. However I was not pleased by the hotel rooms. The carpet was old and stained the room was very small. Also the furniture was not in good shape. The bigger problem was the bathroom which was very old. There was no shower just a tub... More

I stayed at this hotel at the beginning of June for the second time, this time I was with my dad who did enjoy the old look of this hotel. I still feel this hotel is too expensive, but I have to say it is still a great option because of its proximity to the Basilica and Vatican Museum. When... More

We stayed in this hotel the end of March, 2014. When we first arrived at the hotel, we were surprised how close we were to St. Peter's and the Vatican.....we were within a 5 minute walk! Since this area was our primary focus for this trip, it was the perfect location. The hotel itself is older, but that added to... More
