"Fantastic hotel, close to most of the main sight."
Before our break we received an email from the hotel offering collection from the airport, this was a few Euro's more than the fixed price taxi's but sounded an easy option as our time in Rome was limited with plenty to see in a couple of day's. As soon as we walked out of customs we were greeted by our driver and while everyone else was making their way to the train or negotiating the local Taxi drives we were already on our way to the hotel. Arriving at the Raffaello 4 hours before our check in time was not an issue for them at all & they were very accommodating, offering us a selection of fresh croissants, juice's, tea or coffee, free WiFi password, toilets & told we could leave our bags safely with them and start exploring the city. Due to the ease of all this so far we were exploring the city within an hour of leaving the airport. Quickly it became clear that we were within walking distance of The Colosseum, Pantheon, Trevi Fountain (to be fair the only sight we didn't walk to was the Vatican, everything else was accessed on foot). Returning to the Hotel, we were nicely greeted by all the staff and told that our bags were already in our room, the room itself was a far better than we had expected for the money we had paid, so comfortable we actually fell asleep for a few hours before going out again. The room was well made every day by the staff. Buffet breakfast was exactly what was needed and they recommended and booked a perfect restaurant for our anniversary.
Very clean. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was small but very functional. My only complaints are that the room was VERY small, and closet space was very limited. There was no room for a chest of drawers in the room, so we had to live out of suitcases. The staff were very friendly and always there to help arrange tours, cars, etc. Location is nice.
Just returned from a 3 night stay at the Relais Forus Inn and can't praise the place highly enough. Just a 10 minute walk from the main train termini down Via Cavour and ideally located for the main tourist sites of Rome. The staff are top notch and were very welcoming, including a free glass of wine on arrival and evening nibbles! The bed linen was changed daily and the towels were changed twice daily while we were there - once after our morning shower and again after we'd showered and gone out for the evening. If you're planning on going to Rome, make the Relais Forus Inn your hotel of choice - you won't be disappointed.

I visit Rome for business every other month and Kolbe is always my first option! Very well located for after business calm and nice walks in trastevere, piazza navona, pantheon, coliseum... Excellent rooms, nice, silent, nice patio and good breakfast
We stayed at Hotel de Monti for 6 nights during our first visit to Rome. It felt like we were staying in an apartment (hotel occupies the 3rd floor of a building in the Monti neighbourhood, no elevator) but we had a lovely breakfast served each morning (menu choices are typical local fare which you select the day before) and had our room tidied up and fresh towels provided daily. Mauro, our wonderful host, was very helpful to provide sightseeing tips which helped us to plan our itinerary, miss crowds and take shortcuts. He was also very helpful in accommodating our special requests!
You can walk everywhere from here and there are some good restaurants just at the back of the hotel, Staff are excellent, and very helpful. Not a 5-star establishment - no restaurant or lounge to speak of - and the decor in the rooms could do with a little tlc but lovely towels, good beds and a bath! And if you're lucky enough to get Diego on the desk he is excellent. Highly recommended
The heart of Ancient Rome, all roads led to the Forum. Visitors flock here to walk the streets where Julius Caesar once trod when this was the centre of commercial, political and judicial life. Nearby, the Colosseum, described by Lord Byron as 'the gladiators' bloody circus', is the world's most famous amphitheatre and the most impressive of all Rome's buildings and ruins.
