This was my second visit to the Columbia, the first being two years ago at the same time of year (late September). My hopes were therefore high, because I had a delightful stay before. I was not in any way disappointed. This remains a superb, well run and comfortable hotel.
It is away from the centre of Cortina - about a ten minute walk. That's not a problem. It's also on the main road out of the town for the Falzarego Pass, but traffic wasn't a problem in the front-facing room I had, even though there were also road works going on at that time.
I stayed on a bed and breakfast basis. The breakfasts are super, and the coffee every bit as strong as it was in 2011.
Great place, great value. Will be visiting again as soon as I can get there!
