Bolsena what a lovely town. The Columbus is perfectly located at the roundabout near the beach. Staff friendly and helpful. The rooms large and clean. The only complaint would be bathrooms at clean but small...my husband just fit in shower but couldn't close door. But apart from that was great.

We stayed here 1 night and I can definitely say that's a nice spot where to stay in Bolsena. The hotel is situated just in front of by lake and few minutes walking from the medieval area of Bolsena village. The staff is kind and professional and the treatment we received was very good. I'd recommend it.

We stayed here for 1 night on our way back up from the Amalfi coast. What a lovely place for an extra bit of culture. We caught the tail end of an annual medieval weekend celebration (Sunday evening) which made the evening in the little town really entertaining & enjoyable. In the afternoon I had a refreshing swim in the... More

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.
