We loved the Kolbe. It is very well located, and there is plenty to see within walking distance, including the Coliseum. The gardens are beautiful and our room attractive if not exceptional, but what really made it for us was the staff. All were helpful and friendly but we have to single out two of the waiters in the excellent... More

A last minute change of dates meant the hotel we originally booked could not accommodate us, so after looking around we settled on the Kolbe. For me the hotel is all about its location. In the very middle of the historical centre of Rome you were only a maximum 25 minute walk to any of the major sites, most of... More

We only stayed here 2 nights which was a shame as it was such a nice hotel. We weren't expecting to like it so much but everything was just perfect. Ideal location around the corner from the Colosseum and Palatino and walking distance to the hop on hop off bus stop. Our room was wonderful overlooking the hotel gardens. Nice... More

This recommended hotel, it was almost what you expect for a 4 star hotel. Our bedroom was not very elegant, very simple, garden view, this means some noise from the restaurant terrace. The bathroom was large and well equipped! The staff at the reception and at the restaurant was very efficient, professional and friendly!

I chose this hotel through my booking with British Airways Holidays. Hotel was comfortable, clean and staff were helpful and polite. Bedroom was made up each day. It was lovely to come back to a clean and tidy room after a long day sightseeing. Buffet breakfast was plentiful and a very good selection was available. Tea/coffee/hot choc/juices. As much as...

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
