Excellent location, comfortable. Downsides: staff helpful but not particularly friendly, room design a bit odd, fridge did not work, poor lighting, impossible to read in bed, no bedside table.. Beautiful gardens and superb views.

Room was excellent - typical modern European. Very close to the Forum and Colosseum. Restaurants were a little further away, but all within walking distance. Staff was friendly (spoke excellent English) and had good recommendations.

We checked into this hotel as part of our tour of Europe. It is located close to the Coliseum and the Forum but other than that you would need to walk a fair distance to any restaurants and dining locations. The road along side the hotel is very busy and narrow. As for the room it was a bit small... More

Spent four nights here early October on our first visit to Rome. The hotel's location is almost perfect and our room had a view up the Palatine Hill. Around the corner is the Fora Romana. The hotel itself is clean and very well presented, however, a four star hotel it is not. No tea/coffee facilities in the room, budget shower... More

Really great location on the border of the Forum Romanum and only a couple of minutes walk from Circus Maximus. Clean, modern, well kept, and above all quiet - the street outside has traffic during the day but none at night. The staff were friendly, helpful and professional. Good buffet breakfast, although the coffee could have been better - and... More

We have stayed at Kolbe Hotel four times now. It's a beautiful hotel with a good atmosphere. On one side you hit a quiet, beautiful garden and on the lyger side the Palantine Hill. There are many historical places nearby such as Palantine hill, the Forum, the Mouth of truth, circus Maximus, Colosseum and more. The straff are very helpful.... More

A perfectly fine, if unspectacular, hotel for seeing Rome. It's not in the best location - the nearest 'sight' is the Colosseum, which is probably 15 mins' walk away, but you're not paying top dollar prices either. The rooms are a bit on the small side, and the breakfasts are adequate but won't leave you gasping with amazement at the... More
