Covid-19: Customer Service
Customer service was excellent - due to COVID-19 we were unable to travel to Italy as schedule in June 2020. They graciously provided us with a generous reservation voucher to enable us to reschedule for any date prior to Sept. 30, 2021.
Two Stays at the Kolbe Hotel in Rome
We stayed at The Kolbe Hotel Rome twice last year - at the beginning and end of our trip to Puglia and the Neapolitan Riviera. We've been to Rome a number of times but cannot think of a better place to stay while in Rome. The Kolbe Hotel has an excellent location: across the street from the back wall of the Roman Forum, about a block and a half from the Circus Maximus, convenient walking distance to the Palatine Hill, Coliseum, Arch of Constantine, Victor Emanuel Monument, and the Gates of the Roman Forum! The front facade of the Kolbe Hotel Rome is unpreposing and located on the Via Di San Teodoro, itself a very unassuming side street. You'll have to look carefully to notice the hotel (see the pictures below). There is a large lobby with plenty of seating for weary and/or social travellers and the Desk Clerk(s) were very helpful and friendly. We had two very different rooms during our two stays at the Kolbe Hotel: Room #211 was located towards the back of the hotel on floor 1-1/2(?). It was the only room located just off a gallery reached from an extra flight of stairs - almost like a private mini-penthouse. It was a nice room, good sized with asymetric walls. There were two twin beds (with 4 pillows and a white duvet) with night stands and lamps, a small desk & chair, wardrobe closet (with removable hangers), and only one luggage rack. An unusual feature was that the large TV was mounted on a pedestal stand and positioned at the foot of the bed (basically in the center of the room!). The bathroom was good-sized and roomy with a tub/shower combination and a bidet. The shower had a 1/2 glass partition and a decent shower head. The bathroom had an attractive dark red granite sink counter and floor. The sink had a single lever faucet handle. There was a heated towel rack with 4-6 towels; and a nice selection of toiletries; with bar soap, but no face cloths, and only plastic drinking cups. The room had no complimentary bottles of water, nor a coffee urn or fixings. It did have a mini bar. There was no overhead light but the lighting was controlled from bedside. ; and there were some spare electrical outlets. Dinner at the Hotel Kolbe dining room was very good, but the breakfasts, served on the terrace were only fair to good. Room #233 was altogether different: Located on the front wall of the Kolbe Hotel Rome it had a view from window facing the front of the hotel and across the street to the back side of the Roman Forum. Room #233 also had a sofa/loveseat (which might have been a pull-out sleeper sofa) that backed onto the head of the circular bed. All/both were located in the center of the room with the bed facing towards the windows. The high headboard of the bed served as a divider between the two parts of the room. There were two TV, one each serving the bed, the other facing the sofa. This is a great place to stay and we'd be pleased to stay there again on our next trip to Rome.
We stayed here for our Honeymoon we had a taxi pick us up from airport for small fee worth it on honeymoon.From the moment we arrived staff amazing room amazing I ordered flowers and chocolates on arrival oh and Prosecco when in Rome.Location fab by Roman forum as a history lover tremendous.The find of the trip was Trastevere omg turn right out of hotel little bar by it ace go past circus maximus then look for Tiber we went in July and there’s pop up bars and restaurants along river brilliant but the gem is to walk around the old streets of Trastevere find a restaurant bottle of wine and food to die for and just wind away hours.Everything about Roma we love Favourite city in world
Location, location, location, this is a clean, nice hotel walking distance from all the main attractions.
This hotel is perfectly located in the heart of the city, in a very quiet area between the Colosseum and the Tiber river. The rooms are quite large (although mine was much smaller room 228 than the other ones), simple and clean. Lights in the bathroom were great but in the bedroom (which has a very high ceiling) the lighting wasn't great, especially if you have to work at the desk (no desk light) but price of the room is really affordable. Strong dollars of course helps. Breakfast was included in the price, with basic eggs, sausages, yogurt, fresh fruits and continental breakfast was available. The coffee compare to European standard was not good, made by a machine. Staff at the front desk was always very polite and helpful.
Kolbe Hotel Room
Excellent Location. Service really good. Only tip is to have a few of the front desk personnell improve their English. Breakfast was included and was great! Review must be 200 characters for some reason. Said all I needed to.
