"Reasonably priced, good base for seeing Rome"
This hotel is well placed near Metro and Termini and within walking distance of main sites in Rome. It's good value for money and looks much nicer inside than out. The roof terrace breakfast room is pleasant and breakfast itself was a plentiful continental selection. The staff were helpful, welcoming and friendly. I was offered complimentary coffee […] and pastries while I waited for my room - I arrived at 10.30am, so a nice touch as they weren't obliged to have my room ready at this hour. If you want a hotel as a base for sightseeing then I would definitely recommend Hotel Columbia. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Columbia Boutique Hotel,."
I first stayed at the Columbia in 2004 with friends and we found it to be an excellent base for viewing all the important historical sites in Rome, with most of them within easy walking distance and even the Vatican merely a longer stroll.The Metro which is nearby makes access to all parts of the city inexpensive and simple. . Although the hotel has […] limited facilities the rooms are good and spacious with tv that offers 3 english news channels and 2 Sky movie channels, and there is a personal safe in the room for valuables.On sunny days breakfast on the roof terrace is a delight. The staff are very helpful and friendly, and the lift is excellent. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great Find a little Gem"
Great Find a little Gem Great little family hotel within walking distance of all main sights in Rome. Staff very helpful and all spoke English fluently. Breakfast was served on the rooftop and this was very good. Drinks were served all day on the rooftop and it was delightful to come back late in the evening and have nightcap on the roof. Very good […] restaurants nearby within all price ranges. All in all a very good hotel and would recommend it. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect location; the terrace was a welcome oasis"
The hotel was very pleasant, and just what we were looking for. The room was smallish, and somewhat (charmingly) old-fashioned, but perfectly comfortable, clean and quiet. The hotel is very conveniently located to the train station, which is what we were looking for because we wanted somewhere to land and rest up after our transatlantic flight before […] heading down to a holiday on Capri. I chose the location because the areas directly to the south and north of the train station can be seedy, while the Hotel Columbia is in a quiet and safe area. The staff were very kind and accommodating, and the terrace was the biggest treat, as it was a quiet oasis unusual in a hotel in that position and at that price. We had a light evening snack and breakfast there and it was perfect. We were a mother-daughter pair, but I would recommend the hotel to anyone. Just a warning that the wifi was not available in the room, but in the lounge and terrace. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great location and good value"
Close to Rome central train station and walkable to many tourist attractions. Easy to get to the airport via fast train from this hotel. Clean and comfortable rooms, good breakfast with roof terrace and freindly staff.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Cosy hotel stay in Rome"
Excellent location esp if you are travelling by trains or coming in from airport. Just 10 min stroll. Also convenient for dining & shopping. Close to hop on & off bus stops which is good for exploring historical Rome/Vatican City. Friendly & pro-active staff. Breakfasts were as good as 4* hotels. Choice of indoor or balcony meals. Although close to […] Termini Roma, the surrounding area appear kempt & secure. Highly recommended. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent stay at the Columbia Hotel"
Excellent hotel where nothing was too much trouble for the staff. The room was very good standard and spotlessly clean - along with the rest of the hotel. We made use of the bar facility on the top floor of the hotel and it was a relaxing way to spend time on an evening. The rooftop terrace would be good to sit out on when the weather allows. The […] breakfast was more than adequate with a good selection of cereals, pastries and cakes and as much tea and coffee as you wnat. The hotel is a 5 minute walk from the railway station and easy walking distance to all the main attractions - with the exception of the Vatican area which would take approx 45 minutes to walk to. We ate in restaurants around the hotel, the wine bar just along the street - La Fontana al Viminale was particularly good and would be recommended. Overall the hotel would come highly recommended.

"highly recommend this hotel"
Excellent hotel with a lovely breakfast room and terrace and the staff couldn't have been more helpful . Rooms were clean and facilities good. I would return to stay without hesitation.Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel staff were excellent, buffet breakfast on the roof terrace was very nice. Room was very clean and the beds comfortable. Had a menu to choose what type of pillow we wanted which was a nice touch. Would recommend this hotel for its convenience to the Termini station as well.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A spotlessly clean and friendly hotel"
The hotel was recommended to us by a friend who had stayed there a couple of years ago. We were not disappointed with the Hotel Columbia. It is a traditional 3 star family run hotel and as with other 3 star hotels I have stayed at in Italy, they are of a much higher standard than you would expect. The hotel does not look fantastic from the outside […] but don't let this put you off, to be honest not many do in Rome. Once inside you are welcomed by friendly staff and an immaculately clean hotel. The room was spacious (we had a superior room) and had everything we required. The room had a safe, tea and coffee making facilities, a well stocked mini bar and a welcome bowl of fresh fruit. The wardrobe also had ample coat hangers, which was great. The hotel pride themselves on having the highest standard of hygiene awarded to them and all their sheets and towels were pristine. The towels were changed each day. The bathroom was a traditional Italian bathroom which was older in style but as it was so clean I really couldn't fault it. The bedroom we had opened onto the street below but the double glazing was amazing and you could hardly hear it when the window was closed. The air con was also great and was the quietest I have ever come across. It was just the right temperature, not freezing cold or drying. Breakfast in the morning was served either on the roof terrace or in the dining room and was very nice. The serving staff were also very friendly and welcoming. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great hotel for a city break."
We returned home on the 22 September 2012 from Rome - we had a good time at the hotel columbia. The hotel was very clean, with clean sheets at least 3 times during the week we were there. The room was a good size with a good bathroom/shower. The breakfast was great and we had enough to last until dinner apart from the odd icecream or cake at lunch […] time.The staff were helpful in all things from helping us find our way around the city to good places to eat, we would like to thank you all again for making our stay very pleasant.

"Good to be back in a great little hotel"
We are repeat offenders at the Columbia, we like the staff and the location, for a hotel in an old roman building they have a good standard of room with decent storage provision and whilst we would have prefered a bath the large shower space worked really well. The location is very handy for Termini and Republica so you can get around easily and there […] are a selection of good bars and resaturants nearby. It is also right next to the opera house.

"Great service, average facilities, handy location"
We stayed at Hotel Columbia for 5 nights. On arrival - the moment we stepped in - we noticed there was water coming through the ceiling. There must have been a pipe broken. Luckily, they gave us another room. It was a little smaller and had no bathtub but it was no big issue. The breakfast was pretty good and was served in the top-floor breakfast room […] that featured an outdoor terrace. We were able to enjoy the terrace on our first mornings when it was still warm. During our stay, the autumn came to Rome and made especially the nights rather cold - also in our room but we were given extra blankets. The staff were all extremely friendly and helpful, which was the best part of the hotel! The hotel is not located close to any main attractions but it is next to the main railway station Termini and both of Rome's metro lines so it has good transport connections. There are also dozens of restaurants (and other hotels) in the neighbourhood. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The stay at Columbia was pleasant experience. Good service and clean rooms.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I liked this hotel very much. Before I stepped in, I do not have any expectation because the surrounded area is not very clean. The lobby is small. But I changed my mind after I got professional service from the staff when we made the check in. The room is small but very nice. You will feel safe and comfortable. The penthouse and balcony is a very nice […] place to have breakfast and take rest. The lady served us is friendly and professional. Although we may need to take 7 to 10 min. to walk to the station, I still recommended this hotel . Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Super Lage für eine Städtereise"
Der Transfer mit dem Bus zum Termini ist einfach und dauert ca. 40 min. Danach 5 min zu Fuss und man ist am Hotel. Vom Hotel bis zum Koloseum sind es ca. 20 min. und zur spanischen Treppen can. 30 min. zu Fuss. Es fahren in kurzen Abständen 3 Buslinien in die Innenstadt. Die Lage des Hotels ist in Summe top. Das Hotel ist sauber, die Zimmer eher klein, […] das Frühstück für italienische Verhältnisse gut. Um das Hotel gibt es 2-3 Ristorante in denen man ganz gut und zu annehmbaren Preisen essen kann. Einfach an der Rezeption fragen. Hier bekommt man hilfreiche Infos. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"zentrales Hotel mit sehr freundlichem Personal"
Das Hotel Columbia liegt in der Nähe des Bahnhofs Termini und damit unmittelbar bei der Metro-Station und dem Busbahnhof, von wo aus man zu jeder Sehenswürdigkeit in Rom gelangt. Die Zimmer sind sehr sauber, aber schon etwas abgewohnt. In unser erstes Zimmer passte ein Doppelbett mit 140 cm Breite gerade einmal hinein - als wir jedoch um ein größeres […] Zimmer mit einem größeren Bett baten, wurde uns dieser Wunsch sofort und sehr freundlich erfüllt. Dann waren wir zufrieden mit unserer Unterkunft…Das Frühstücksbuffet war ausgezeichnet, wurde je nach Wetter auf einer wunderschönen Dachterrasse oder in einem sehr geschmackvollen und gemütlichen Aufenthaltsraum serviert und von dem nettesten Servierpersonal betreut, das wir je erlebt haben! Extrem freundlich, super flott und hilfsbereit machten sie uns jeden Morgen das Frühstück zum angenehmen Start in den Tag. Ein großes Lob wollen wir auch den zwei deutschen Damen beim Empfang aussprechen - ihre sehr persönliche und nette Betreuung der Gäste machte den Aufenthalt im Hotel Columbia sehr angenehm.

"Excellent hotel/Excellent staff/Excellent location"
What an outstanding hotel for a 3 star rated hotel. The staff is very professional and speaks very good english. The staff is also very helpfull in giving tips for sight seeing in Rome and they're always giving you service with a smile without overdoing it. The hotel is located just 10 minutes walking for the Termini central station in Rome and it is […] a perfect place to start exploring Rome. The breakfast is simple but perfect. The hotel in general is very clean and has a very modern lift. The hotel is located at a very busy street but thanks to the newly installed window frames in each room with very thick glass, you'll never hear the noise of what is happening in the streets in the room. I would highly recommend this hotel to others especially if you are looking for a hotel located on a central location in Rome from which you can easily walk to every important sight to visit.

"Super Standort und top Personal!"
Das Hotel liegt in der Nähe vom Termini. Der Standort ist hervorragend und praktisch um alle Sehenswürdigkeiten zu Fuß zu erreichen. Von außen bietet das Hotel keinen schönen Anblick, aber von innen ist der Zustand gut. Wir hatten ein Zimmer zum Innenhof, so dass wir keinerlei Straßenlärm hatten. Das Zimmer war sehr klein, sowie auch das Bett, irgendwie […] war es, glaube ich kleiner als 140 cm x 200 cm. Zu zweit war es daher schon sehr beengt. Die Matratze recht weich. Aber nach einem Tag voller Sehenswürdigkeiten haben wir gut geschlafen. Das Badezimmer war mit BD ausgestattet, Dusche hatte leider keinen Duschschlauch, so kam die Duschhaube dann zum Einsatz. Zu bemängeln ist im Bad, das das Wasser in Wanne und Waschbecken schlecht abliefen. Das Frühstück war einfach. Dicker Pluspunkt geht an das Personal. Keine aufgesetzte Freundlichkeit, sehr sehr hilfsbereit, viele tolle Tipps und sehr freundlich. Wir können es aus diesem Grunde auch absolut weiterempfehlen. ! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Zentral gelegenes Hotel mit toller Dachterasse"
Gleich bei der Ankunft im Hotel haben wir einige hilfreiche Tipps bekommen und das auf Deutsch. Das Personal ist sehr nett und hilfsbereit. Das Hotel liegt sehr zentral, die Bushaltestellen (auch die für Hop on, hop off Busse) und die U-Bahn-Stationen Termini und Repubblica liegen 5-10 Gehminuten entfernt. Wenn man will, kann man alle Sehenswürdigkeiten […] zu Fuß erreichen, außer vielleicht den Vatican. Restaurants gibt es jede Menge in der Nähe. Morgens auf der Dachterasse zu frühstücken war einfach toll. Kaffee gibt es in allen Variationen, Milch, Wasser und Saft, dazu kann man wählen zwischen verschiedenen Cerealien oder zwei Sorten Müsli, Trockenobst, (Dosen-) Früchte, Joghurt, hartgekochten Eiern, italienischen Brötchen, Toast, Kuchen, zuckrigen Croissants, kleinen Doughnuts, Käse, gek. Schinken, Salami und sogar Schwarzbrot. Unser Zimmer plus Bad waren rel. klein, aber völlig ausreichend und sehr sauber. Ein eigener Tresor im Zimmer war sehr praktisch. Regulierbare Klimaanlage, Minibar (Kühlschrank) und ein Flachbild-TV sind vorhanden. Internetzugang war kostenlos. Ein PC mit Drucker steht den Gästen zur Verfügung (Flugbestätigung). Wir waren sehr zufrieden und würden immer wieder dieses Hotel buchen! Sehr zu empfehlen :) Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
