Excellent location. Five minutes from Palatine Hill and the Colosseum. Reasonable restaurants, small grocery stores, vibrant buzz. Breakfast adequate. Hotel staff helpful, considerate, and knowledgeable.
I visit Rome for business every other month and Kolbe is always my first option! Very well located for after business calm and nice walks in trastevere, piazza navona, pantheon, coliseum... Excellent rooms, nice, silent, nice patio and good breakfast
"wonderful 24 days--great staff ambience and staff"
My wife and I (both age 71) just returned to Toronto after 24 wonderful days and nights at the Ivanhoe. Location is superb--steps to the subway and a 15-minute walk to colloseum, forum, Ste. Maria Mag. cathedral, train terminal , Republica Plaza and other major attractions. Staff were always friendly and helpful. Many good, reasonable restaurants on Urbana Steet in front of the hotel and around Ste. Maria Mag. plaza. However, prices do vary considerably so check the menus and ask if you are cost conscious.
We spent five days in Room 33 which was charming but small--not for the obese or families. We then moved to Room 45, which was quite adequate in size.

The Ivanhoe hotel enjoys an excellent position in the centre of Rome, in the Monti district - one of the most …More
We stayed at Hotel de Monti for 6 nights during our first visit to Rome. It felt like we were staying in an apartment (hotel occupies the 3rd floor of a building in the Monti neighbourhood, no elevator) but we had a lovely breakfast served each morning (menu choices are typical local fare which you select the day before) and had our room tidied up and fresh towels provided daily. Mauro, our wonderful host, was very helpful to provide sightseeing tips which helped us to plan our itinerary, miss crowds and take shortcuts. He was also very helpful in accommodating our special requests!
Nice, clean room but ensuite a bit small. Not a great selection for breakfast but ok for a short stay. Within walking distance of the Colosseum, Forum, main train station & metro. A good selection of eating places within walking distance.

Stayed for 3 nights here for our stopover in Rome. This is the only B&B we stayed for Italy but comparing it to the other hotel the room are much cozier. Many plus points for which we gave it a thumb up.
1) Close proximity to Roma Termini 5 minute walking distance. Other attractions such as Coloseum were also within walking distance.
2) Lisa and Mariana was waiting for us downstairs when we reach at the main gate to receive us. Mariana also gave us tips and recommendation for walking around Rome. There is a supermarket right beside it.
3) Rooms were big and modern. One of the room was on the side of the basilica while the other 2 room was on the quiet courtyard side. The aircon was also working....not like those in hotel where they regulate the temperature in cold weather.
4) We had free access to the dining area at night where we had takeaway food. Nice place to gather and chit chat. There is also vending machine for drink and snack.
Overall a pleasant experience and if we were to go back to Rome we will definitely come back here.
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.
