"Lovely Reprieve from the Hustle and Bustle of Rome"
initinially hard to find as we caught the metro from Temini and so a bit of a walk in the hot sun with our kids to get there. However, as soon as we entered the doors of the hotel we were met with a clean, cool, modern interior with great Roman costumes on display. The staff were very helpful and courteous. Our room was spacious, cool and overlooked the lovely garden. Breakfast was great. The hotel was so close to the Forum, Colesseum, Paletine Hill and also walking distance to Trevi Fountain and shopping streets. We ate down at the Tiber River as there was some sort of International Food Festival on so great vibe. Rome was hot and crowded so the Kolbe Hotel was a welcome little oasis. We felt very safe walking the streets around it and this was important to us as we had small children. Would love to stay here again!!
Disappointed that I was not given the room I paid for and asked to change.. I paid extra for adeluxe room as shown on your website but given a room I had already stayed in 2 years ago although I paid extra. They did change the room but only after we stayed in that room for 2 nights so feel tha I have overpaid. We hada welcome drink but bar refused t serve us it one night and other night the reception staff ended up serving it to us. Reception staff were great, bar staff, useless and rude. Very disappointed about being givena room that I could have paid a lot less for.
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!
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.
