We arrived on August 15 in Rome and checked in in the Colombus Hotel. First of all, it's very centrally located, 200m distance of the Vatican. We were received in a very friendly way. The receptionist was very friendly and showed us the places we could visit. The rooms were spacious, authentic but a bit old. At breakfast, we were... More

Stayed at this hotel in July 2014. We booked it primarily because of its proximity to Saint Peter's Square. Its location cannot be beaten. The staff are friendly and helpful. The rooms are quirky, as is so common with many old hotels across Europe. It was sweltering in Rome when we were there and the AC struggled to keep the... More

Spitting distance from St Peter’s Square, the Columbus is a graceful matriarch of a hotel, I’m sure it’s history would be really interesting. Friendly staff and a bit of a hike to get to our room (massive hotel), comfy bed, fantastic restaurant in the courtyard downstairs (the crème brulee is best I’ve ever had). Staff organised airport transfer for us.

This could be a wonderful hotel. I emphasize the word "could". At the moment, however, it is far from perfect. I stayed here in July and truly thought I had been catapulted into one of Dante's levels of inferno. The first impression is good: the hotel is in a very old Palazzo and the lobby is classically understated and stylish,... More

I stayed at Hotel Columbus in Rome for 5 nights with my girlfriend. The price was reasonable for a hotel in a very good location. Looking out of our window we could see St marks Basilica to the left and castle St Angelo on the right. The room was basic but fine and with a very large, comfy bed! Hotel... More

The Columbus Hotel is an incredible old palace which is now a hotel. The rooms were sufficient but nothing extraordinary. They were clean and well kept. The restaurant is very good. What makes this an exceptional stay is the fact that the hotel was once a Palace and is a beautiful building, and the proximity to the Vatican City. The... More

We stayed at the Columbus Hotel during our recent stay in Rome back in May. What a delight it was! The hotel is in the Palazzo Della Rovere dating back to the 15th century. The features and room sizes were kept from that time and modern amenities have been added. It does feel like being back in history. The room... More

We stayed here for two nights. Ideal location as St. Peter's basilica and the Vatican are two minutes away. Most of the front desk staff were very helpful and friendly. The breakfast ladies are just amazing. The entire place looks rustic and beautiful like an old convent. If you appreciate shabby chic and minimal decors, this place is it. If... More

Just arrived home after a 5-night stay at Columbus Hotel in Rome. We (me and 3 teenagers) have been very satisfied with our stay. The rooms are very big and the beds comfortable. The bathroom was ok, perhaps a bit small, but not a problem to us at all. The TV was very old and small and with only a... More
