As a hotel and travel operator I rarely write reviews as it can seem a little unfair on those we do not review but every now and then we find somewhere exceptional and think others would greatly benefit from the knowledge.
The Kolbe Hotel is a hidden gem. The location is perfect for walking to many of the historic sites of Rome including Palantino, Aventino and Capitolini Hills with The Forum, Colosseum and Circo Massimo and many other sites all very close. Many of the other sites such as the Trevi fountain and famous piazzas are a little further but all quite walkable. The nearest metro is Circo Massimo which is about 10/12 minutes walk.
The hotel is tucked away so it is nice and quiet. The Kolbe is a hotel which has been nicely converted from an historic building and it has a calm atmosphere. The room I has allocated was large and had all modern amenities and all the staff were friendly and very willing to help. The breakfast buffet was as you would expect from a 4 star hotel and there was plenty of space, a wide choice of hot and cold food and no queuing. All in all this is a lovely hotel in the heart of Rome and was excellent value.
When you visit Rome it is like walking in history, so staying in an historic building adds to the experience.
