Great location. Nice helpful staff. Let down by litany of easily dealt with factors.

The grubby state of carpet on the stairs and in the corridors on the way to the second floor was not a good greeting.

The bed was hard and lumpy. I can sleep anywhere, but my wife really struggled with this and could not wait to get home.

The additional 7 euro per day for the internet seemed tacky for a service that was flaky, slow and needed repeated sign-on with non memorable ids and password.

An aircon system that only operated on the full, noisy, fan setting and had a minimum temperature setting of 19 and a maximum of 22 meant manual switching on and off during the night.

Only two English channels on the TV was a surprise in such an international and multi cultural city.

The lack of a shelf or tray in the shower for soap and shampoo meant juggling or bending to the floor.

The nice breakfast terrace on the roof was let down by a lack lustre and unappealing buffet spread that included no fresh fruit, limited bread options, only one heated option of rubbery scrambled eggs, tepid "hot water" for the tea in a coffee filter jug on the coffee warmer and tasteless filter coffee.

All above easily addressable by a so called four star hotel part of the ITI group.

Not so easy to address was the room layout we experienced, whereby next door's en-suite bathroom protruded into our room behind a thin wall behind our bed. Listening to the tinkle of water hitting a basin in the late evening felt very unsettling.

We wondered if the manager had ever stayed in the rooms.

This hotel is definitely on our avoid list for the future.

The location is brilliant! We were right across from the Parliament Building, 5 mins (not even) walk from the Trevi fountain, 5 mins walk from the Pantheon, and 10 minutes walk from the Vittorio Emmanuel Monument. It really was the prefect location, and was quite safe as there was always loads of carabinieri out the front being that it was in the same square as Parliament.
They could be a little noisy however, as they were there all through the night, but the window shutters closed out most of the noise so we didnt have any complaints.

The staff were always helpful to us, and gave us a great authentic Italian Restaurant recommendation nearby.
Breakfast on the rooftop terrace was good- there wasnt a huge selection for food, but it suited us quite well, and the view was simply gorgeous overlooking the city. It was very romantic!

The room we stayed in was absolutely massive, and the toilet & bathroom were separated from the bedroom by a second door, which meant that if one of us wanted to sleep in a little, we couldnt hear the other using the bathroom! Brilliant!
The bed was comfortable and we were able to sleep very well.

We would recommend this hotel, especially for people who want to be right in the heart of Rome, and close to all of the action!

As with most three star places they are old and quite limited in what they can deliver. So taking all this into account the Colanna proved good value. Excellent location, lovely breakfast on a quaint top floor, rooms clean and service OK although staff were quite gruff - not rude ! We are writing this review with the recent benefit of staying in numerous hotels in Europe over the last few weeks. On the down side elevators are very small and very very slow. A stay here would be dependent on price and where it fits within your budget.

Rooms are of variable quality. We ended up with 3 rooms for 4 people when two rooms were booked and paid for 3 months in advance. Odd but it did give us a direct comparison between 2 single rooms - one was newly refurbished but the other was poor. No drapes over window, no phone (phone line didn't work in that room), toilet didn't flush, shower curtain falling down. Staff shifted us the next day to 2 new rooms which were both refurbished and much better. Just be aware that not all rooms here are created equal ....

Room Tip: Still, great location 5 min from Trevi Fountain and other sights easy walking. Check out rooms before booking!

We will treasure some special memories from Rome and this Hotel location made it very easy to see ALL the major attractions in central ROME! Easy walking distance to wherever you want to be! Only had a problem with the air-conditioning not working in the room...

Room Tip: Quite central so very noisy and it is next to the parliment... I am a heavy sleeper and this did not bother me, the location makes up for all of the noise! Get a room looking out over the parliment and piazza!
