We wanted a hotel that enabled us to walk to the major sites in Rome during the day and eat out in nearby restaurants in the evening. The Colonna is very central, yet peaceful because it directly faces the Italian parliament building. Our room was comfortable, with a view over the square of the Egyptian obelisk (Ist century). It is just around the corner from the 2nd century column of Marcus Aurelius. It was 20 minutes walk to the Coliseum, the forums and the Palatine hill and not much further to the Vatican and Castel St Angelo ten minutes in the other direction was the Pantheon and the Trevi Fountain. This we really appreciated as before we have stayed a bit out of town. The room was comfortable, clean and modestly priced, though not huge.
Breakfast was on the roof terrace with a view across to St Peter's square.
As we travelled with cabin luggage only I needed some purchases despatched to the UK via post and the manager, Ettore Frigo arranged this personally. When we wanted restaurants booked or tickets for the open topped bus tour reception arranged it all and as we do a fair bit of travelling we have come to appreciate professionally run hotels.
So Yes we would stay again when next in Rome
