The hotel staff were welcoming and helpful. Kolbe is ideally situated and is a little oasis with a lovely terrace and garden. The room was comfortable, clean and well appointed. The lobby was spacious and welcoming. Wifi was excellent throughout the hotel.
Booked flight and hotel, no problems with either . Arrived a little early but room ready to go straight up. Loved the hotel and area around, lots of nice restaurants , ice cream and an Irish bar around the corner. Close to the colosseum which was where we wanted to be. Felt like a nice safe area to be.
We were very lucky to get a room in this hotel at the last minute. Having experienced a problem with my original booking at another hotel, it put our visit to Rome back on track. On arrival I was greeted by very friendly staff who checked me in swiftly and set me up with a complimentary tiramisu and ice cold water.
The Superior Room we had was opposite the main Hotel, and was very beautiful, with a fabulous shower and lovely bed and bedding.
WiFi was a little intermittent, but I have to be honest I didn't really need it, so didn't bother to see if I was doing something wrong, or follow up on that.
Breakfast was included, and served on a very sociable small roof terrace. Continental buffet, tea and coffee, and a choice of cooked eggs. It set us up perfectly for the rest of the day. The staff were lovely, and conversation between guests flowed easily.
There's also a very pretty 'roof-top' garden tucked away out the back.
Every evening there was a very civilised 'happy hour', again served on the roof terrace, which was great for another chat with other guests before popping out for dinner.
Check out the hotel's hidden gem behind reception during your stay.
The staff really took care of us, and we really cannot fault this lovely venue!
Great value hotel 10 mins wlak from Colloseum and 15 mins from The Termini.Very friendly and helpful staff.Room fairly small but comfortable bed,good shower and AC which worked well.The crowning glory was the the roof terrace
The Hotel is close to most of the major sites with the Vatican also walk able if you fancy a stroll.( Just take a bottle of water with you!)
The staff were very friendly and helpful and if you have the chance, visit the Circus restaurant on the 5th Floor. The location, view and food was an unexpected but welcome treat.
It was also my birthday and whilst it was not announced it must have been noted at check in time as I found some cake and a note of best wishes when I returned to my room.
I could not fault the whole trip and would recommend Rome and Hotel 47 to anyone.
The heart of Ancient Rome, all roads led to the Forum. Visitors flock here to walk the streets where Julius Caesar once trod when this was the centre of commercial, political and judicial life. Nearby, the Colosseum, described by Lord Byron as 'the gladiators' bloody circus', is the world's most famous amphitheatre and the most impressive of all Rome's buildings and ruins.
