“Just what we were looking for”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2014

With just five colorful guestrooms, the ColorHouse is a unique place to stay when visiting Rome.

Staff was friendly and helpful. Upon arrival, we were greeted, offered complimentary bottles of water and snacks, and given a map of Rome and advice on reaching some of our must-see destinations. We were able to leave our bags at the ColorHouse for several hours after checking out, which meant we could spend our remaining hours in Rome exploring the city, burden-free.

The entire property appears fresh, clean, and newly remodeled. The bathrooms are especially nice.

We received breakfast vouchers for use at the Cafe Merulana, which is a lovely place maybe 3-4 blocks or so away. Breakfast consists of a croissant or pastry of your choice, 3-4 pieces of toast with butter and jam, orange juice, and espresso.

The ColorHouse location is outstanding, within walking distance of the Colosseum and only steps from a subway station, which was our gateway to reaching the rest of the city. It is located on a quiet street, so outside noise was not an issue when trying to sleep.

If you require constant assistance or attention from hotel staff, then this place is not for you. Between our check-in and check-out, we did not see any staff members present. There are phone numbers to call if any issues arise. Fortunately, our stay was wonderful and we had no problems or complaints. The ColorHouse had everything we wanted in an accommodation, and more. It definitely feels like we stumbled on a well-kept secret.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 September 2013

This is a great place to stay without all the extra hotel fuss. Right from the time the booking was made to our stay, Colorhouse Guest house stayed in contact to find out any extra requirements we may need and we were welcomed with very warm and helpful staff. We arrived to a recently refurbished hotel, with a contemporary feel.
It is very well located, with a tram stop and train station right in front of the hotel with direct links to termini station, colosseum and vatican city
For breakfast, there is an option of Roman or continental breakfast in a Cafe nearby. Do not expect a buffet style breakfast but a plate of toast, eggs and bacon on a plate served at your table if you opt for the continental option.
There is also free wifi available but only in the common room which can be a bit of an inconvenience but other than that it was a very nice and warm place to stay.
