Excellent location & hotel
Really enjoyed our stay - was there 6 nights in total. Very close to major attractions & restaurants & staff were very nice & helpful. Would recommend to others travelling for business or pleasure....
We stayed here for 4 nights with 2 adults & 2 children. The rooms was lovely with an amazing high ceiling and feature wall. The location is fantastic our room overlooked palatine hill and was 7 mins to the colosseum. Garden was lovely to have an evening drink in. Breakfast was ok fairly basic. Would definitely stay and recommend the hotel to others.
My 10 year old son says the food was great, the people were nice, and the rooms were great too. It was in a convenient location for touring, and our hotel room had a view of ruins from the Palatine Hill. It was a short walk to the Colosseum and Roman Forum, and another short walk from the Colosseum to see an 11th century church built on top of a 4th century church built on top of a first-century Roman home and street. The hotel staff were friendly and courteous. Ramona and Omar stand out as especially helpful. Omar even show me a street view of the train station we were going to be arriving at the following day to help me orient in advance of arriving with my 10-year-old son. The hotel staff can help with everything from arranging private tours, to assistance with bus Lines and least expensive options for visiting a site. You can purchase bus passes from the hotel staff period they are one €150 each and good for 100 minutes, plenty of time to get to your destination. MAKE SURE you validate your bus tickets when you get on board or they will try to charge you $100 for not validating it.
Too good to be true
We doubted that we would find a hotel in Rome that would fit all our requirements: location near Roman ruins, be clean and comfortable and be quiet. Hotel Kolbe more than fit the bill: modern and appealing, it is located across a small one-way street from the Pallatine Hills. We enjoyed exploring and were able to walk to many ancient sites. Very relaxing to come back to the hotel after day's activities. Back terrace and garden were very lovely. Room was very comfortable. Shower a bit snug, but equipped with modern jet spray. View from room window of Pallatine Hill was breathtaking. Staff very friendly and helpful.
A wonderful location to anchor your exploration of Rome
We arrived at the Kolbe hotel on a 5-day tour and extended our trip an extra 4 days. Our room was clean and neat. The hotel staff was warm, knowledgeable and responsive even to the point of new friendships. The courtyard was an incredibly beautiful respite from the hustle and bustle of a world class destination. Across the street is the Roman Forum. 2 blocks down is the Capitoline Hill. Both are a wonder during the day and amazing at night! The romantic walks to and from the nearby restaurants, the impromptu church visit (and warm welcome) are the stuff of life time memories.
