Just a small entrance from the street and a small number of rooms. we found the staff very friendly, the room was clean, finely decorated, and a nice romantic getaway for our anniversary. The included breakfast on the rooftop terrace was excellent with a great variety of food and a wonderful atmosphere.

We chose this hotel based on good reviews here and the location. Arriving to Termini from Fiumicino airport, the hotel is just a couple of blocks away so no need for a taxi. If you have healthy feet, it's also a walking distance (10-15 min) to Colosseo, the historical city centre and Spanish steps. The staff in the reception as well as the breakfast and cleaning staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Breakfast was ok, excellent coffee. Our room was in the fourth floor in the corner of the building, one wall (but not the window) facing the street. Noise was not a problem. The rooms are air-conditioned. We were headed to Toscana and rented a car from Termini at the end of our stay. If I were only going to stay in Rome for a few days and maybe with a little less luggage I would probably choose another hotel in an even more central location considering the big sights, but in this situation this hotel was perfect as walking without luggage isn't a problem for us, and the hotel was a little less expensive than those more centrally located.

We visited the Columbia Hotel in a recent visit to Italy. It was the second visit to the hotel after our first visit in 2011 when we got engaged in Rome. Like the legend of the trevi fountain and the throwing of the coin we returned to the eternal city. The city means so much to both of us and we just had to return to the Columbia.
The helpful lady on the reception whilst checking us in recognised us and asked if we had visited the hotel before.
The rooms have everything you need and the bar area upstairs offers a welcome place to rest after a day of walking in the glorious weather.
The hotel staff do everything in there power to help and will happily offer suggestions for places to visit and eat.
The very lovely Italian lady who worked upstairs in the bar even attempted to learn us some basic Italian
Cannot find fault with this hotel and would not stay anywhere else when we visit Rome again

Just come back from a 3 night stay at Hotel Columbia.
Excellent location, fantastic reception staff from the minute we arrived at the hotel. Room small but adequate. Really traditional with the extras you need etc hair dryer safe fridge and toiletries. The bedding and comfy beds are what you need after a long day sight seeing.
Breakfast excellent best we have had on a city break. Roof top terrace for breakfast and the odd bottle of prosecco a nice place to start and end the day.

After reading some reviews I think they must have been at another hotel and they got the wrong hotel name as we could not fault anything.

We will return without a doubt. Thank you for a very nice enjoyable stay

Last week I stayed at the Hotel Columbia for two nights with my family. It was the final two nights of our two-week holiday in Italy and the hotel was the prefect way to end our vacation. The hotel has a great location and the rooms were great but what really made the stay wonderful was the helpful staff at the reception desk. Not only did we have a warm friendly reception, we were allowed to check in early. In fact we had interactions with three different people at the desk and each was incredibly helpful. It was our first trip to Rome and they helped with everything from recommending local restaurants, to giving us tips on how to see local sights (like the Forum and Colosseum), to booking us a cab to airport. They were fantastic.

If you're staying in Rome for a couple of nights, I recommend the Hotel Columbia!

Let me start by saying, that thanks to this hotel my trip to Rome was all ruined ...

Small rooms, noisy, same breakfast, unbelievably old furniture , disgusting feeling is just what comes at the top of my mind.

I was really dissapointed with this hotel, but i have to say that the staff was really friendly, but other than that this was a huge dissapointment .

Avoid

Just got back from Hotel Columbia, it was a wonderful holiday to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary, we were presented with a bottle of Champagne and a wonderful card from the staff.
All the staff were excellent from the helpful front of house staff, they answered all our questions with patience and a smile, to the friendly and efficient waitresses and housemaids.
The breakfast is buffet style on the 5th floor, lots of choice, very fresh. You can also get a bottle of wine served on the roof top terrace, a bottle of very good white wine is 9 euros which is the cheapest bottle of wine we found, drinking in the local bars is very expensive.
The room was very clean and nicely decorated, although it was a bit smaller than I was expecting, but the wonderful feel of the hotel made up for this.
It is very close to a Metro stop (Republica) and a few minutes walk to the main Termini, we love walking but because it was very warm we used the Metro to go to the Vatican it is 3 euro return per adult very good value, the Vatican stop is just a few minutes walk to Vatican, worth the few euros. Columbia is walking distance of all the tourist attractions, with lots of great places to eat.
Will be going back to Rome and returning to the Columbia.
