Excellent location, average room”
Location was perfect. It's on a quiet street so nights are never interrupted, but it's an easy walk to Vatican City and many top rated restaurants around. Several bus stations nearby as well and metro station a couple of blocks away. No lift in the building so take that into consideration. They have 3 floors in total, but the 2nd and 3rd floor are one floor higher because there's a residential floor between the reception and the rooms. The worst part were the mattresses. 3 out of 4 beds have sinking mattresses that made it difficult to move. The 4th bed doesn't even have a proper mattress. Just a thin cot and you can even feel the grills of the metal bed.
Cute hostel in Vatican”
Very cute hostel. Definitely recommended!
Hotel Colors is a good, clean, inexpensive hotel within walking distance of many of Rome's amazing attractions. One needs to be able to climb stairs, though, because there's no elevator. Difficult for older people or for carrying luggage.
Me and my sister booked 2 nights in a double room with ensuite bathroom at Hotel Colors and had an overall pleasant stay. (We could have saved more if we just booked the double room with shared bathroom located in the corridor, but my sister prefers to have an ensuite bathroom). The room's size was adequate, and the bathroom (step in shower and water closet) was relatively clean and comfortable. The hair dryer was old though - it was funny, because it will take you ages before you can get to dry your hair. But it was not really a negative for me. The bed and the pillows were comfortable. The safe inside the closet was not working - we reported it to the front desk receptionist and they offered to keep our valuables in their safe instead while they try to repair it. We opted to bring them with us though. There's no microwave in the room but there were 2 bottles of water, a fridge, and toiletries provided. The staff are really nice and helpful. We forgot to bring an adaptor for the chargers - they offered us to rent one for a deposit fee of 5 euros that you can get back at check out. We didn't avail of the breakfast package but they offer free coffee and tea all day in the kitchen/dining area. I saw the breakfast buffet, and it included simple and common choices like croissants, marmalade, butter, cheese, cereals, and some cold cuts. The only downside I can think of is that there's no lift, and the rooms are in the 3F. It was not a big deal for me and I think for most people (especially young and fit travellers) as well. But it could potentially be a problem for some (especially those with heavy pieces of luggage). The location was absolutely helpful since it is just a few blocks away from Vatican City - which is the highlight of most Rome trips, and also since the queues there take forever - a good location means being able to get to the queue as early as possible. It is also close to most bus stops that can take you to the town centre. It is just within comfort
Good location, value for money ”
This hotel is located in a building, so every time you come, you will have to ring the bell to go inside. Rooms scatter on three floors, and we are on the third floor with no elevator, so it is quite hard for the little child. Location is very good, just around the corner is a convenience store opens till 10PM, and a Fish and chips restaurant (Porto) - which is very nice. Bed is so so, bathroom is ok but the hot water is not stable, it can suddenly go from hot to cold and then warm. Breakfast is nice. From the hotel you can literally go everywhere, 800m to Ottaviano Metro station, 300m to bus stop (81) that directly connect to Colosseum. St Peter's church is very near, you can go on foot to everywhere in Vatican. With this price, this hotel is very value for money, and convenient.
600 meters away from the metro station, a little difficult for the customers with heavy baggages. The room offered has 4 beds, maybe 4 people can also choose room. Independent wash room and around 90 € per night and not including 6 € city tax. Clean and quite hotel!! It can be a choice
Buena ubicación. Buena recepción. Limpio. ”
Desde Fiumicino el SitBus te deja a pocas cuadras. Con buena ubicación, muy cerca de la Plaza de San Pedro, Del Museo Vaticano, Castillo de Sant'Angelo. Con locomoción hacia el Coliseo a pocas cuadras. Un supermercado pequeño a la vuelta. Con tiendas cerca. En la recepción siempre hay alguien que puede ayudarte con información y se esfuerzan por entenderte y hablar en español. Limpieza y orden, bien. No cuentan con ascensor, por lo que hay que subir escaleras con valijas o bolsos. Tienen aire acondicionado que vale 100 puntos en verano. Televisión por cable, que es muy variada. Recomendable 100%
Good Location - near Vatican and tourist sites”
Pros: walking distance from Vatican and tourist spots, restaurants nearby, very accomodating staff, near bus stop for Roma Fiumicino Airport. Cons: a bit of a walk from the underground station We stayed in a small double bedroom with shared toilet but has own shower in room. Facilities are good and clean. We did not have any problems with going and using the toilet as we shared with just one other room but just realized it’s still more comfortable to have one in the room rather than outside. Hair dryer in room but was taken off from us the next day and they don’t have any spares at that time. They let us use the one they have in their other shared bathroom which was 2 floors from where we stayed. All fine but having a permanent one in the room should’ve been better.
OK budget option”
We stayed at Hotel Colors as our usual Rome accommodation was fully booked. It was a good price, and OK location. Room was clean and bathroom good. The air conditioning was only just OK though - if you ran it all day you could get the room down to 24 degrees which was OK for sleeping but a little cooler in the afternoon would have been good. However whenever we went out the cleaners would leave the windows open (with the ac on??) and then we would have to start all over again with trying to cool the room.
Cheap and Cheerful”
I liked this 2 star hotel better than I liked the 4 star hotel we stayed in at the beginning of our holiday. They replenished our water everyday not just the first. They made sure we had clean bedding, towels and had replenished everything. 5 stars to Housekeeping. The receptionists were all lovely and polite. I wasn’t massively keen on the stairs after walking around Rome all day nor that there was no kettle for tea, but I am British. I would stay here again regardless of that. Very pleased.
the staff knew their stuff, gave us a good briefing, and rooms were kept clean and beautiful. easy to find location. Great!
"Not Senior Friendly"”
Hotel Colors is just beside Vatican, the best they can offer. The hotel floor is higher than the usual. The reception is two floors higher from the ground. Imagine seniors given a room at the fourth floor with no lift. Tiring, so seniors, "BEWARE".
Take a deep breath ”
No elevator so u must bring ur own stuff to the 2nd/3rd floor , if u r a light traveler than ok but if your bring a heavy lagguage than its a big problem . Room ok , staff ok , location very great , wifi extremly bad , hot shower didnt work .
Pricey for this kind of place”
The price at which we paid does not give justice to the rooms we stayed. The room was a double and it was very small that we could not even open our luggage. The bed was a little hard and uncomfortable. The toilet was flooded with water everytime we shower because the tub only has half of the cover. It was water everywhere. There was NO elevator and no help extended! Too pricey for this hotel. Good: 24 hour check in, luggage can be stored (although openly in the common area), and thry printed my biarding pass for free. The place is close to restaurants and supermarkets and a few blocks from the vatican.
Everything you need”
a big thank you to the tall deeped voiced man that told the room two doors down to shut up! i was trying to sleep for the vaticant tour very early next day! i was about to get up and complain but you heroicly came to my aid without you reasling it. Swiss guards have nothing on you :-) FURTHERMORE STAFF REALLY HELPFUL, HELP ME FOUND LANDMARKS, BOOK TAXIS, AND ANSWER SILLY QUESTIONS The bed is hard (but weridly comftable) My room (superior double "208"), is small but it came with a balcony which was great. The shower is powerful, and it has sky TV!!!! ( PLEASE NOTE YOU CAN CHANGE TO ENGLISH AUDIO IF YOU PRESS I ON THE REMOTE) close to supermarket, mcdonalds (for the hangover day), hop on hop off bus, vaticant WIFI GREAT, telly was in a werid position. really enjoyed my stay. CHEERS!
Great hotel for budget travel!”
The hotel was located within walk-in distance from the most popular tourist attractions. It was clean and the kind and helpful staff made our stay excellent. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who does not want to spend hundreds of euros for their accommodation, but would also not like to stay in a hostel dorm.
Great stay. Easy walk to the main attractions. Our room was right next to the reception so we were woken early in the morning but didn't let that ruin our trip, you could just wear earplugs. Nice room and lovely staff. Would stay again if room was not by reception.
Good value hotel near Vatican - however no lift ”
Hotel Colors is about 10 minutes from St Peter's and 15 minutes to Piazza Navona in the Historic Quarter. Housed in a 19th Century apartment block the rooms are on the ground floor (up a flight of steps) and the 2nd and 3rd floors with no lift so not advisable to anyone with mobility restrictions. However the rooms are a nice size and bright & colourful. The hotel has a mix of en-suite rooms and rooms sharing a bathroom- we had an en-suite room which was basic but clean and functional. The rooms were cleaned and beds made daily. The staff were very helpful.
Good location, friendly staff! ”
2 star hotel is a very modest way to describe Hotel Colors. The rooms are very comfortable, it is in a great location (pretty much walking distance from all places). Just 5 - 10 minutes from the Vatican and Castel Santangelo. We couldn't fault how accomodating and helpful the desk staff were. Next time we travel to Rome, we would definitely stay again! Thank you Hotel Colors.
Safe and quite hotel”
Our stay in the hotel was really nice. We enjoyed Vatican, Rome tour and nice people around. The hotel is OK except that they should develop / construct an "elevator" for the guest with huge luggage / bags.
