“Excellent Hotel, Great Service and Perfect Location!”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

My darling husband and I stayed at Kolbe Hotel for 10 nights - we had an absolutely fantastic time. The staffs really go above and beyond what I have come to expect. Valerio with his wonderful personality made us feel so welcome and accommodated our requests, Ricardo excellent service. Plus Elena and Francesca as well - always helpful. The restaurant staffs deserve a gold star - Alessia, Mauricio plus brother and the amazing chef – perfect service and excellent sense of humor. Food is great - eat at hotel. Breakfast has great selection of goodies. Free internet. Location is perfect – walking distance to major attractions. That feeling of déjà vu – holiday is over. 

Room Tip: Better book the room via the hotel website to see what you are getting. Our room over looked the Pal...

Very good standard in every sense. The only slight issue is lack of control over room temperature, but reception can change this.

Lovely location close to the Forum and Colosseum. Note that thare is a limited amount of restaurants/bars close-by, but there are two bars that serve food in the area.

The staff were fantastic.

Just had a five night stay at The Kolbe Rome Hotel. We arrived early so our room wasn't ready but we checked in and they stored our luggage while we went for a stroll round and lunch. The room was very nice and spacious and spotlessly clean.We had a room overlooking the street and although some people had said it was noisy at night we didn't have any problems at all.
Staff were very nice and helpful and willing to help any way they could.
We only ate lunch there once but the food was nice and we thought reasonably priced.
It's in a nice peaceful area but not too far from all the sites.
Would certainly recommend it to friends.

We stayed at the Kolbe during our trip to Rome in January 2013. It was our second location to stay for the trip and it was a little disappointing. I chose it based on the pictures and location near the Roman Forum, but it ultimately reminds me of any other hotel I have stayed at. It just wasn't special. No real complaints except there was no hot water in the shower.

Huge hotel room for Europe and the best meal (gnocchi with mushrooms and steak) we had the whole time we were in Rome. Excellent server in bar/restaurant. The multiple shower heads in the bathroom are pretty much useless unless you want to literally drench the entire bathroom. The bed was a little stiff. The bakery down the street has well priced, delicious croissants. Appears to be a favorite of locals. Drawback was the lack of multiple restaurants super close to hotel. Bring your walking shoes!

My family (2 girls 13 and 15 and my wife) and I thought this hotel could not have been any better for our purposes. If you're in Rome to see the sights, there is not a better location; walking distance to most everything (possible exception being St Peters). The staff was very friendly and helpful and they all spoke English well. The room we had was very big, very clean and had a nice modern design. Our friend's room was similar in quality with room for 5. The complementary breakfast was more than adequate.

Room Tip: Rooms on the higher floors have view into the Forum (100 ft away).
