Excellent, small family hotel, ideally situated in central Rome close to the Spanish Steps, Piazza del Popolo, Palazzo Barberini etc. Friendly, service-minded staff. Nice breakfast. Only drawback was the bathroom which was too smal for two persons. Reasonable rates.

Small family run hotel. Clean and comfortable. Very friendly helpful staff. Excellent location near to the Spanish Steps and other attractions within easy walking distance. Good value for money. Recommended.

Rooms were nice and the staff were very friendly. The location was great, being close to the Spanish steps and the Trevi fountain. Breakfast ok, we soon learned it was the norm for Italy. Clean and enough room with the sweetest lift to get to reception. Looked like it had been there since Victorian times.

First impressions of our room was not so great but it soon grew on me! We arrived mid afternoon and our dark curtains had been closed but once we opened them and the shutters behind, it was so spacious and light.... Perfectly clean and so was the bathroom! Breakfast I did not eat but the coffee and hot chocolate are... More

Stayed at City hotel with my husband and two sons for 3 nights in August 2014 as part of a 14 night visit to Italy and I could not wait to leave. There is no way that this hotel can be 3 star. Although the lifts are quirky and the location is absolutely perfect to see the Spanish Steps, Trevi... More

We stayed here as part of a pre booked holiday with a tour company. Although small we found the hotel perfectly located and the manager and most of the staff exceptionally obliging. Our request for laundry service was sorted very quickly by the very hardworking lady who dud breakfast service plus all room cleaning. The rooms were very quiet and... More

We just returned from a 3 day stay in Rome at Hotel City. We are a married couple and travelled together with our 2 teenaged daughters. Firstly, the hotel advertises that they are located 300m from Barberini station, so once we arrived there from Termini train station, we decided to walk. Don't make the same mistake we did as navigating... More

Me and my boyfriend stayed in Hotel City for 7 nights! Our room was really nice and clean. Loved how the rooms were very tall! The hotel itself is quite nice! The staff was excellent, especially the guy that was usually at night time! Apart from one guy who always seemed moody but thankfully we didn't have to see him... More

Hotel City is very well placed, in easy walking distance of many attractions. There was no street noise and the room was clean. The morning staff were pleasant and helpful. However, the room was not well maintained with huge cracks in the plaster. The bed might have been made of stone, it was that hard and uncomfortable. After a delayed... More

Staying in Colonna

Neighborhood Profile
Frantic fashionistas, pedicured politicos, goal-oriented tourists, and on-the-go locals cross paths every day in Colonna, a delightful chaos in the very center of the city. Even though it has some of the city’s loveliest sites—a 2nd century column, Belle Epoque shopping center, and a magnificent Baroque parliament building—Colonna is not just another pretty face, but the cosmopolitan eye of Rome’s cultural storm. Colonna can safely say it has the best of Rome: museums, boutiques, window displays, restaurants, cafes, and people watching.
