This was the first place I stayed at while in Italy. The staff were very nice and always helpful. The location could not be better for sightseeing! Its a stones-throw away from Vatican. The rooms are quite dated and the A/C was either broken or so weak it had no effect. The hotel was supposed to have a traditional feel... More

This was an older hotel located 5 minutes away from the Vatican. At night, the area was secluded and quiet with some tourists, but during the day, the area was lively full of tourists and vendors! WiFi was available, but only in the lobby and continental breakfast was average. This hotel was not too bad for our first time in... More

Stayed here for the 2nd time in February. The staff was excellant and treated us well. Rome was having rain and floods and most hotels lost hot water. The hotel was very helpful during the crisis! Especially after a long day of Rome walking. Hot water came on next day and all was good. You just cannot beat the location.... More

Fantastic location and full of charm on the exterior and public rooms. VERY limited car parking spaces (12), which isn't enough for the size of the hotel- and you can't reserve any spaces. Rooms are very basic 2* and like other reviews the beds are 2* to match. Don't go paying over the odds for this place as you may... More

It took me a while to get around to finally writing a review, being that our stay was this past June of 2013, but here I go. If you are a fan of The Vatican, then there could not be any better hotel in all of Rome than the Hotel Columbus Roma. From the moment our cab brought us from... More

We stayed here while on our honeymoon and we wanted a hotel that had charm...and while we fully knew that the building would be old, and we liked the idea of being in a historic building, well the property has done NOTHING to add any comfort or make it worth the money we paid to stay here. A few things... More

Reception was rather rude, and everything else was mediocre. Excellent location but would rather stay in a better hotel and use public transport which is quite efficient. Hotel rooms are very sparse and are barely comfortable.

Situated between St. Peter's Square and Castel Sant'Angelo, we were within walking distance of these two very exciting places. We also enjoyed walking along the Tiber, especially the quieter side across from the Castel Sant'Angelo. We were disappointed not to be in Rome on a Sunday in order to perhaps see Pope Francis, but what we did not know was... More

Spent 5 nights at this excellent location. Great access to St Peter's and the Vatican. Easy access to the Borgo Pio. Walking distance across the Tiber to many other sites. As a historic building, it lacks some modern conveniences, ( tiny elevator, slow). Needs some updating, room sizes vary. The renovated areas are very good.
