My sister and I traveled to Rome the end of May and our first hotel stay was the Hotel Columbus. The hotel was elegant and stately with old world charm. We loved it. The staff were great, there was a very reasonable airport limousine service, and they went out of their way to welcome us. The Veranda Restaurant at the hotel was a fabulous place to drink in the scenery, and local sites. Walking distance to St. Peter's and the Vatican, it was an ideal location. The breakfast that came with our room reservation was so good, and nutritious. The coffee is exceptional!
In addition, the Hotel is a historic building and the Vatican Apartments are near. Lunching and dining with religious men and women from the vatican, and students, scholars and artists was really fascinating. We loved this hotel with it's beautiful works of art. I believe that it was once the place where priests lived when they came to Rome. I
The rooms are very lovely and the windows are huge and open like shutters and you can lean on your windowsill and look out. Very charming. I am not sure if there was air conditioning, probably was, but we didn't turn it on. We stayed four nights - three at the beginning of our trip and our last night in Italy. Both times we loved our rooms. I still haven't quite figured out the elevator numbering system, but we managed to muddle through it!
The staff at the Hotel Columbus were very kind, considerate and helpful. They never seemed to get up tight no matter how many people were asking questions, calling on the phone, or requesting services all at the same time!
I would go back to this hotel and recommend it to anyone wanting a relaxing, comfortable and clean room with a location handy for everything you might want to do.
