“Faded Elegance in a Good Location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2013

We spent a number of nights at this hotel, having used it on previous trips to Rome, but never again. The hotel location is great and within walking distance of most of the tourist sites. Breakfast which is good, is served on the rooftop, with fantastic views of the city and the staff couldn't do enough for you, but if you want a drink in the bar you have to wait until the barman has nothing else to do (depending on which one is on duty). Overall the staff are very helpful but we felt we were an Inconvenience to the manager. The rooms are clean but some are very small and could do with updating, you could describe the hotel as faded elegance. Located beside a state building the hotel is surrounded by Police barriers, which makes it secure and safe but sometimes your route could be blocked off and you might have to walk around the block. Regular protests take place here. WiFi is not available unless you pay for it (not good enough for 2013), street noise and old noisy air con fans will keep you awake at night.

Room Tip: Rooms on the Piazza facing the state building are quieter,

We got sent here after the hotel we had reserved for our honeymoon vacation said they were overbooked and sent us over here for a night.

Pros: GREAT location. Super central to attractions, really close to Pantheon. The breakfast was decent but the rooftop patio it is served in is spectacular. Really great. They also serve pots of American coffee which was awesome and tasted good. Staff was very nice.

Cons: rooms are a little run down, which I can live with, but the beds are incredibly uncomfortable which was harder to take.

If you get a good room rate, it is a good place for a Roman sight seeing home base. But don't pay too much or you'll be disgruntled when you arrive and see the place.

The Palace Colonna is a nice enough hotel with a fantastic location. The rooms are rather shabby though, concidering it is 4 star, they are not clean and not maintained at all, and some not all are very small. The breakfast is definitely not worth paying for. Friendly staff and a very nice roof garden/terrace.

Location is convenient for walking to all the "must-see" highlights of Rome. Wi-fi (7€/day) unreliable. Bathroom updated but our shower leaked profusely, resulting in wet carpeted area in front of bathroom door for the duration of our stay. I suspect, that is why they provide packaged slippers. Wall-mounted hair dryer and toiletries provided. The highlight of the hotel was the roof top terrace for breakfast and a pre-dinner Aperol spritz.

Can't believe the last people only gave this one blob. Ok the corridor carpets are a little faded but all in all it's a lovely little hotel right in the centre of Rome.
Rooms very clean
Location excellent, max 20 mins to everywhere worth seeing
Nice breakfast in a rooftop location
Lovely little bar
Good size rooms
Safe in room
Police all around the piazza (it's the parliament square after all)
And finally not that expensive compared to central london for example. Of course you could opt for one of the big fancy american style hotels off the Borgese but you will miss out on the quaint roman feel and central location of this hotel.

Not a 5 star - old and tired and wifi is not available without fee. Breakfast is lovely and included, friendly staff, gorgeous rooftop view of the old city. Across from Parliament, expect police everywhere. Comfortable room and fantastic location.

Be warned. The pictures on their web site do not represent what you will receive. The Colonna Palace is not a 4 star hotel. It's really 2 stars. The carpets are old and stained. The rooms are tiny. The beds are terrible. The furniture is of poor quality and badly maintained. While in Rome, we checked other hotels and found that you can get much better hotels in similar locations for the same price.
