Columbus Hotel in great location to Vatcan

Posted Apr 10, 2015
Pros: Location
Cons: Updating of rooms and electronics in rooms
Could not ask for a better location to Vatican with this hotel. Hotel staff friendly. Our apartment was spacious enough for 2 adults 1 child had a great view of courtyard Room itself was very Spartan. Needs to be updated

All about location

Posted Jan 15, 2015
You can't get any closer to St. Peter's or the Vatican, so if that location is your aim, this is a perfect hotel. It certainly feels authentic, ancient and old, so know that is what you're getting in terms of decor. The staff was great and the rooms were bigger than Euro normal

Un albergo in una posizione centrale.

Posted Jan 13, 2015
Pros: La cortesia del personale e gli ambienti comuni.
Cons: Purtroppo la struttura dei bagni e l'aspetto delle camere.
Location: Buona posizione, a due passi da S. Pietro; metropolitana un po' lontana
La reception e tutto il personale sono gentili e gradevoli. Gli ambienti comuni sono di grande prestigio, in particolare il ristorante. La camera invece era dimessa, un televisore davvero troppo vecchio, in generale un po' deludente; il bagno anche, pur avendo tutti i componenti accessori in regola, ma lavandino troppovecchio, luci non ben disposte.

Old castle, near the Vatican.

Posted Jan 13, 2015

Location: The Vatican next door but some inconvenient for others attractions.
The hotel is fine and very close to the Vatican. A little inconvenient of other attractions. The staff a little sparse.

Right outside St Peter's Square

Posted Jan 8, 2015
Pros: Close to Vatican (St Peter's square)
Cons: Better heater in winter
Location: Very close to Vatican City, Castel Sant'Angelo is within walking distance, as Rome is walkable city, cross the river you are in the heart of Rome.
This is an older hotel, however it is well maintained with modern amenities. The elevator is very small, we have 3 persons in the party and it wouldn't fit us (with the luggage) in a single trip. The great thing about this hotel is it is so close to the Vatican city, if that is the main purpose of your stay in Rome. It is located just outside St. Peter's Square. The nearest metro station is Ottaviano, around 10 minutes walk from the hotel. There is an AC unit in the room for summer, but in winter (we were there on January 1) the heating is provided from the hot water radiator controlled centrally and we cannot control the room temperature. The hotel provided us with airport transportation with same pricing as regular taxi service (EUR 48 on Jan 1, 2015, prior booking through front office is necessary).

Location favolosa

Posted Nov 27, 2014 on Hotels.com
Solo una notte. L'albergo trasuda piacevolmente di storia e si trova in un posto favoloso: di fronte alla Basilica di San Pietro. La camera (classic) avrebbe avuto bisogno di un rimodernamento. In complesso comunque, giudizio positivo.

The location is excellent, nearby Vatican City

Posted Nov 24, 2014
Pros: Location.
Cons: The breakfast is pretty expensive after taxed. No cafe or bar inside hotel.
Location: This location is excellent. The most major points within walking distance (1hour).
The location is excellent only few minutes from Vatican City. Hotel has private parking. Room is clean and big enough. This is a very old and huge building.
