“Friendly, efficient hotel close to Rome's attractions”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

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

Room Tip: Get one with a view of the square

I was traveling with my teenaged son and we really enjoyed this hotel. Staff polite and professional and all spoke very good English. Though they were patient enough to allow me to practice my Italian. The position is fantastic. Close to everything, very close to Trevi fountain and Spanish Steps and dangerously close to very good shopping. Room was small, but this is Rome, and yes a bit dated, but clean and comfortable. Enjoyed breakfast and in summer I imagine the pool is a bonus. Views from breakfast terrace were wonderful. Overall I left feeling my time at this hotel was time well spent.

Hotel looks very good on web site, but when we went there we realised interior looks old and very used. Hotel has no restaurant, but breakfasts are served in the roof top, where is romantic view to Rome.
Cleanliness in room was OK and hotel staff were nice, just one waiter was little bit nervous during hectic breakfast time and ignore us...
Location of hotel is absolutely excellent!!! You are just in the centre oposite the Parliament. Hotel is 2 min from Pantheon, 7 min from Piazza Navona, 10 min from Piazza Venezia, 20 min from historic Rome, Colosseo and Vatican.
If you don’t expect luxury of four star hotel, this hotel is good choice for pairs that want to spend nice vacation walking around historical sights.
And is also good for shopping maniacs, cos its dangerously close to Via del Condotti :)))

The location is fabulous; it is walking distance from many of the key sites in Rome. But the rooms desperately need updating. Our room looked nothing like the one in the professional photos. Even all the carpets in the hallway have to be over 30 years old, they are pretty gross. Thankfully the bathrooms ARE updated. The front desk staff was fine, but not helpful when our air conditioning didn't work. He said that it was working downstairs, so he couldn't understand why it didn't work in our room (the fan was actually broken). Thankfully it was September and not mid-summer. We were able to open the window. The breakfast was lovely and served upstairs on the veranda. Despite the fact that the rooms need an update, they were clean, and I would still stay here again for a decent price because of where the hotel is situated.

We loved our stay here. It's very centrally located and is nice and quiet, tucked away in a little piazza...... The breakfast room is on the top floor with a roof patio, with a beautiful view. The place is a little dated, and is probably due for a little remodeling, but we really liked it!

As many Before me have mentioned, the location is great. Also the staff and willingness to meet customer whishes were much higher then "normal" italian city center hotel. The breakfast was served on a roof-top terrace overloooking almost the whole city of Rome with Saint Peters Church in one direction and Victor Emmanuell building in the other. They even had a little pool up on the roof. ( well, a very small pool suitable for kids or samply dangle your legs in), but yet a pool...I mean, they did not even mention this nor the terrace in the information of the hotell at the e-bookers web site. The view over the neighbours roof top gardens was also very beautiful.

All-in -all it was a great stay and very good value for Money. Very good value....

Found this hotel was a walking distance to Trevi Fountain, Pantheon and The Spanish Steps. The room was clean and tidy, staff very helpful , there was a lovely lounge to sit in, and the good breakfast was served on the roof - a really lovely spot. The only negative, would be the pool - very small and we didn't think useable. However was a minor concern and didn't really detract from our stay in Rome. Would certainly recommend this hotel to fellow travelers
