Kolbe Hotel Rome Reviews
Beautiful modern hotel located in the heart of ancient Rome Jun 25, 2011
The Kolbe Hotel is a beautiful, modern hotel situated in the heart of ancient Rome. Located on a quiet, cobble stone street directly across from the ruins of Palatine Hill and the Roman Forum, the hotel is steps from several other ancient sites such as the Colosseum, Circus Maximus, and Bocca della Verità (Mouth of Truth). The hotel allows you to start each day by walking out the front door and seeing Ancient Rome laid out before you.
The front exterior of the hotel is unassuming on a quiet block. However, once you step inside the front doors, the decor of the hotel is very modern. Directly beyond the hotel lobby is a restaurant and bar. The restaurant serves a complimentary breakfast every morning, serving not only the standard European breakfast fare, but many American favorites such as eggs, pancakes, and cereal. It is an excellent way to begin your day. The restaurant overlooks an inner courtyard of the hotel which is absolutely gorgeous. As you can see form the pictures, it is lined with palm and orange trees. When checking in, I would recommend you ask for a room that overlooks the courtyard. Although rooms in the front of the hotel on the higher floors have amazing views of the ruins, cars traveling on the cobble stone roads can be noisy. The rooms themselves are comfortable and designed very nicely in a modern style. They possess every convenience you would expect from a luxury hotel, including air conditioning which is not always available in Rome hotels.
Although the hotel is located in a quiet area, it is a short walk or taxi ride across the Tiber River from the Trastevere neighborhood, which in my opinion, has the best nightlife in the city. I spent several nights walking to this area for dinner and drinks. Also, the Kolbe is a five minute walk from the Circo Massimo Metro stop, which was key for me as a subway-riding New Yorker. This allows for cheap and easy access to most areas of Rome.
I would highly recommend the Kolbe Hotel if you are looking for a quiet place to stay that has loads of character, and is out of the way of tourist central. You won't be disappointed.
