Sandro was lovely and ever so helpful, the hotel itself was perfect. Location was amazing and was lovely to look down on the street in the morning! Breakfast provided in nearby bar; they weren't the most friendly but that's not the hotels fault. Still buzzing from the stay so would highly recommend! 😍😍💑

I recently stayed for two nights at the Down Town hotel. Amazing. Sandro (owner/manager) sorted transfers out for us, and despite the flight being nearly an hour early the transfer was awaiting us at the airport. Upon arrival at the hotel, a very polite, courteous, Sandro awaited us. He explained everything to us including areas to see on a local... More

The boutigue hotel is a great choice. Fantastic location in the very heart of the City. A few minutes walk to the Spanish Steps. Within walking distance to Vatican on one side to the Colloseum on the other side. The rooms are modern, clean and everything works. A bunch of fresh flowers with "Welcome" card on the room table. Good... More

This hotel is fantastic. Our flight was delayed and the very helpful man stayed up to check us in. The hotel itself is great - spacious room, great bathroom, smart TV, tea and coffee and mini bar. Free wifi. The location is perfect - near all the main sites and near two metro stations. You get breakfast coupons for the... More

We recommend Down Town Hotel for its clean, modern rooms, courteous manager Sandro who stored our bag while we left Rome for a few days, quiet location yet near to the action, good breakfast a block away at a local bar. There's an elevator to help with bags. It's important to inform the hotel of your arrival time because the... More

What a great stay in Rome!! The hotel is only one floor of a building. It is in the heart of Rome, just 2 blocks from the Spanish Steps, surrounded by shops and restaurants. When you go into the hotel, it has a nice aroma, like a spa. Loved it! It is modern and very clean. The rooms and bathrooms... More

What a find! The Down Town Hotel had everything we needed: a friendly accommodating host, a great location, comfortable beds, and tickets for breakfast! Everything was perfect! The manager was very flexible and concerned that our stay was satisfactory. We were allowed to store our luggage while we finished sight seeing. This hotel was the best!

We definitely recommend this hotel. The location was extremely convenient for touring, shopping, eating and just simply hanging out. The rooms are big, very clean and very elegantly decorated. The bed is king size and firm, making for top quality sleep. We had a room right next to the reception, overlooking Via Frattina. During the day the noise from both... More

Staying in Colonna

Neighborhood Profile
Colonna
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.
