We were impressed with Hotel Columbus and the village of Bolsena. We call it the hidden gem of our trip to Italy. The hotel is quiet, located just by the lake. Rooms were spotless, so was the hotel. Great price for the quality of the hotel. Very friendly staff. Close to everything in town, you can walk to every attractons... More

We stayed there with a family on a car trip to see Bolsena and the nearby Orvieto. The hotel is located just next to the square from which there is a beautiful view of Bolsena lake. The centre of Bolsena with basilica where the miracle happened is within walking distance, around 800 metres away. The hotel is a good tourist... More

Bolsena is a charming lake side town and the Columbus is at the end of the main avenue fro the town centre to he lake side. Quite spacious public areas with friendly helpful staff. Our room was quite small but very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was good with a pleasing variety of sweet and savoury. Excellent coffee.

Me and my partner stayed here for a long weekend in summer as a pit stop to our journey to my house in Italy. It was a present stay. No mishaps. 20 steps from the lake! Fantastic! Breakfast was a standard European breakfast. Was good as the sister hotel is just opp it so if you don't like the lake... More

On the avenue leading down to the Lake, so a good location for wandering around the town environs; just a few minutes walk back to the main part of town, but closer to the shore of the lake. Great big room, wifi, good breakfast, clean. Had a deck which we ended up not using. Pleasant stay.

We stayed 3 nights at this hotel. The location is fantastic , at the lake & an easy 5 minute walk into the town. Staff very helpful, breakfast fine - typical continental style, nothing special, good coffee. Rooms clean. Hotel in general a bit tired & could do with a refurb.

We stopped here on they way from Rome to Cinque Terre- it was a nice break in the drive for one evening. A little bit of a drive from the highway, but they were rolling hills and scenic countryside roads, so it was very nice. We booked a 2 person room and it was huge, also the bathroom was huge,...

We stayed at the Hotel Columbus for one night and loved the location. The hotel fronts a lovely flower-filled square/park and the lakeside, with its cafes and little beach. We had a triple on the second floor and it was comfortable, replete with a deck (which we did not use, as the view from the deck was not particularlyt interesting... More

A tourist hotel near to Lake Bolsena and about 10 minutes walk from the old centre of this lakeside town. The hotel is traditional and starting to show its age (70's/80's refurbishment??). There was a group (coach?) staying and we appeared to be the only indendent travellers. However it was excellent value at only 60 Euros for a double room... More
