Family vacation while visiting our daughter in Rome. Very nice hotel with a large room & clean with an attentive staff. This hotel is on a quiet street and is a 10 minute walk to major sites (Forum, Colosseum, etc)....a definite plus. We had a room facing the garden. Definitely enjoyed staying a hotel with some character instead of the... More

Me and my girlfriend stayed at the Kolbe early March. Despite arriving and having our passport stolen on the metro. This was a fantastic hotel. The staff at reception were always there to help. The breakfast was brilliant, plenty to choose from. It was kept warm and replenished consistently. We had the deluxe room and it was not disappointing. On... More

We spent 4 fantastic nights in the Kolbe hotel and had a great stay. The staff were all lovely and friendly. We had originally booked a Double with a view, but I hadn't realised this meant a view of Palatine Hill and at the front of the hotel. The room was fine but I was concerned about overlooking the road... More

This is a nice hotel, far enough away from the crowds but still within 10 minute walk of the centre. It's clean and hospitable, but not particularly luxurious. If they added a few touches it would be really super. We stayed in a Family Room, overlooking the Palatine hill. The ceiling height was amazing and really makes the room feel... More

Stayed at the Kolbe March 8-13. Very clean (except for the remote control). Nice quiet room. Being from North America - I was not prepared for the extremely small shower but made it work.

After a terrible start to our Babymoon at another hotel, our travel agent found us availability at Kolbe. With only 30 mins notice, we were put up in a very nice, clean, warm and modern room. The staff were friendly, helpful and always smiling, warming up the cold Roma days.

We booked the Kolbe in a package with our flights and were really happy we did. Having never been to Rome before we obviously wanted to get out and explore the many sights on offer, this hotel provides the perfect base for it with the main Roman sights just a few minutes walk. It meant we didn't need to get... More

This hotel is ideally situated beside the Forum and most of the ancient Roman artifacts such as the Circus Maximus and a 20 minute walk from the Colosseum. Remodeled over its 4 century existence, it bears the name of Maximilian Kolbe, a 20th century monk, saint and martyr who attended the establishment during the 1930's when it was a seminary... More
