            This hotel is very convenient for the basilica. It was a great stay for the Easter sunday mass. We heard the bells ringing and there is also a church nearby (just at the back of the hotel). I will definitely stay here again on our next visit.

            Fabulous Location, Fabulous Price!”

            What a gem this is right outside St Peter's square!! The price was fantastic and the location couldn't be beat. An added bonus of secure on site parking lot made this hotel one we will use every time we are in Rome. The staff was super helpful and pleasant. The room we had was very basic...we would have liked a more comfortable bed and better pillows. The shower stall was very small and we commented that we were lucky weren't oversized people or we would not have fit in it! We did choose the lowest category of room, which was certainly not the fault of the hotel, and will upgrade to a higher level or room on our next visit. The room was spotless as was the bathroom and the housekeeping staff was great! Truly a fabulous find and we will return for sure!!!

            It is convenient to us as we spent most of the time (4 days) of this travel to visit the Basilica of St. Peter. It is less than 5mins on foot from hotel to the church.

            Excellent location, old utilities ”

            It's right in front of St Peter's Square, very convenient for visiting the Vatican Museum and other sites. We opted for hotel's history and architectural style at the expense of modern conveniences. So we came prepared for some mishaps and older deco and furnishings. The toilet is tricky and sometimes doesn't stop running. On our last night, there was no hot water and it was not yet fixed by the time we checked out at 10am. All hotels have to collect taxes on behalf of the city, but the 6€ per person per night fee was not included in the price quote I got when I booked the room.

            Enjoyed it very much.I would not rate as four star. Room was "tired". Showering facility was quite bad. No shower curtain. Have to sit in bath to have a shower. Breakfast skimpy. One day eggs not served at all. No cooked eggs. We tended to have late breakfast and coffee was usually cold.I would stay again and have in fact booked.

            Our stay at the Hotel Columbus was really good. I was only disappointed in the breakfasts. At 60 euros for 4 of us, I would have expected decent coffee. It perhaps shouldn't be so important to me to have a good coffee in the mornings, but it is! In Italy too!

            1. Far from train station with much cobbled stones in the way. Horrid for luggage. 2. Near Vatican city. Less than 5 minutes to St Peter's square. 3. Wifi isn't stable and password is hard to remember. Iphone had trouble connecting.4 4. Receipt is compulsory. If there is printed trouble you might have to wait a while. Check out earlier. 5. Breakfast wasn't anything grand. 6. Restaurant has a courtyard. 7. Good for artsy people. Paintings, vintage furniture, etc in the common areas. 8. Elevator is built for 2 persons with luggage. 9. Aircon wasn't working? Or I didn't know how to handle it.

            It was like a camping trip, no extras, like heat. ”

            Location to the Vatican.

            We had no heat and a funny smell like sewer in the room. The hotel seemed worn out and dirty. When we asked about the heat, they said "it seems to be a problem", I asked what they were going to do about it, they did send a space heater. the night before our stay at the Hotel Columbus, it was very nice, had breakfast, up-dated rooms and was clean. We will go back to the on our next visit and will tell others not to stay at the Hotel Columbus. There are too many nice places to stay within the same area to go back. Up dates to the carpet and furniture are needed to the Hotel Columbus, it is doable with the amount of people using it. Clean it up. There was no breakfast available or reasonable food choices.

            The price offered by agoda is of very good value. Check in at hotel was rather slow as the receptionist took 20min to find our reservation, even tough we brought the agoda voucher. The hotel room was larger than expected, but with fairly old but clean interior. The location is great, 200m from St.Peter`s square. Would stay at the hotel again, as the price offered to us was value for money.
