“Charming hotel with family rooms”

Small and charming hotel, spacious room, very clean. Excellent location near the Duomo. Friendly, helpful staff. We especially enjoyed breakfast; fresh, tasty and served with the very best coffee. Enjoy!

We stayed here in July with our 2 teens and we loved it. The hotel is in great location. It is near Duomo and Uffizi, etc... All is in walking distance. Our room is large and clean. The bathroom is a bit small, but it's good for us. It's a good hotel with very reasonable price. The breakfast is excellent, especially the capucino. This is a family run hotel and they are very friendly and make you feel like at home.
I would stay here if I come to Florence again.

My husband & I stayed here for two sweltering days end June & were so thankful for the very effective air con. Staff were friendly & invited our daughter (who had been studying in Florence & staying elsewhere in city) to join us for breakfast free of charge. Room fairly basic but spacious & clean & the bathroom was good size. Great location only a few minutes walk from the Duomo & just around the corner from the leather market.

My brother and i stayed here for one night on our way to venice. What a great city, and to be right near the action of the leather market, the restaurants, bars, etc. was a great plus. The hotel is a little dated but the rooms are spacious and have all of the necessities, as well as being clean and safe. A great value, for sure. I would recommend to anyone on a budget- small families, young couples, etc. (Breakfast was great, too).

We stayed 3 nights in Jun 12. A very clean & convenient hotel. People were so helpful & friendly that made u feel like home!! On the breakfast table, we ate very fresh & seasonal fruit as the owner will go to the market & choose herself. I will definitely stay there again!!

We stayed 3 nights in June 2012. We had the room just behind the desk (for 3 people), so the only time that presented a problem was when Italy took on Germany in the Euro Championship and won. But that is a rare occurrence. Otherwise the room was clean, the breakfast ample, and the room very comfortable. The a/c did the job and the towels, though thin, as mentioned, are quite absorbent. The bathroom is small, but who cares. You certainly don't travel through Italy to spend time in the bathroom. We found the hosts to be helpful with directions. And we loved the location. We walked from the train to our hotel. And our position in relation to the Duomo, the Uffizi, the Santa Croce and the David was wonderful. We would definitely return there in the future. Since the elevator is small, it helps to be in good shape to take on the stairs, especially in the heat of the summer.

Room Tip: Room 6 had a nice veranda where we brought our breakfast. It faced the back of the building.

We stayed in Hotel Colombo in hot july. Small lift takes you second floor. Neat and clean.
They could improve on the towels. Breakfast is ok. Location is great.. Walking distance to all sites .
Taxi from train station to hotel for three with luggage is 10€.
