We stayed at this hotel for five nights. Our room was amazing we had a small room with a sofa type bed and a larger room with a double bed. We had a large balcony joining both rooms and an amazing view of part of the Colosseum. The train statiion and all major attractions other than the Vatican City were no more than a 20 minute walk. We took the metro, which is less than a five minute walt from the hotel to the Vatican. I believe the metro ride was less than 20 minutes and two metro tickets which you could use as many times in a day were approximately 10 Euro for both.
Breakfast was not bad needed some fresh fruit. The WIFI internet is excellent just ensure you do not install it on a portable device if you are planning on using a laptop. You are given one free access code which can only be used on one device so save it for your laptop.
The staff during the day did not seem as friendly as the night shift, however all staff members were polite and assisted.
There is a grocery store a few minutes from the hotel towards the main train station. There are lots of great restaurants in the area.
Note there were three rooms in our wing of the hotel and ours was the largest and the other two seemed very small, contact the hotel staff prior to booking to ensure you are going to get a large room.
Almost forgot about the roof top terrance. It is a beautiful sight during the day and in the evening you can bring your own drinks up or they will deliver them from the bar.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Hotel Colosseum, a magnificent terrace overlooking Rome... Welcome to Hotel Colosseum. You are in the characteristic Rione Monti, one of the oldest and most picturesque neighbourhoods of the "Eternal City", in the peaceful and quiet Via Sforza, at n°10. Thanks to our exclusive location, in the centre of Monumental Rome, you will have the opportunity to visit the main tourist attractions on foot. In the immediate vicinity of the hotel, you will find the Basilica of S. Maria Maggiore, the Colosseum and the Domus Aurea. Crossing Via Cavour will take you to Via Urbana. Called "Vicus Patricius" in antiquity, it is remembered above all for the visits, which tradition claims were made by St. Peter to the house of a Christian senator here. A short, scenic walk along the streets of Rome will also take you to the Imperial Fora and the Church of S. Pietro in Vincoli, which houses Michelangelo's famous statue of Moses. Hotel Colosseum is located at one of the highest points of Esquiline Hill and provides a 360° panoramic view of Rome and its surroundings from a splendid, furnished terrace on the eighth floor of the building, where the guests can enjoy the view while savouring a drink from our bar. All the rooms and common areas of the hotel have Wi-Fi coverage. An internet point is also available for use. At the reception, you can get information about all means of travelling through the city (taxi and bus services, car, scooter and bicycle rentals) and about guided tours. The stops of numerous city buses are a few meters from Hotel Colosseum and the "Cavour" (Line B) metro stop is about 3 minutes away on foot. The Termini railway station is 700 meters away. The hotel is situated in the historical centre of Rome, outside the limited traffic zone (ZTL); therefore, it is possible to get to us by car and park in the nearby partner garage.
