My wife, daughter, and I stayed at the Columbus Hotel from 6/29-7/3 2014. The location of this hotel is AWESOME. Just a couple of buildings down from St. Peter's Square, very close to ATM's, and major bus routes. This was our second stay in Rome, the first trip we stayed too far away from the city center, and this location definitely got us close to everything!
The staff at the hotel were very friendly and did everything they could do to make our stay here enjoyable. We booked 4 nights that included breakfast. The breakfast was pretty typical fare for Europe, and was the same each day. It was very convenient to at least have a full stomach before walking miles and miles through the city of Rome!
One downfall was the quality of the rooms. We are not snobs by any stretch of the imagination, but we were disappointed in our room based on the many pictures their website had advertised. The room was spacious, and had a basic vinyl tile floor, a small TV that barely worked. The worst was the A/C. It was a wall mounted unit above the bed that struggled to keep the temperature below 80 degrees...which was extremely uncomfortable for us after walking around in the 85+ degree heat all day.
Overall a nice hotel for a short stay, the location is perfect, I would just suggest that they continue to upgrade the rooms with 21st century fixtures (such as the A/C units) to make the stay much more enjoyable!
