Hotel Colombina

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 7, 2013

This hotel is in an absolutely great location (once you find it!). Only a few minutes walk to fantastic restaurants and St. Mark's Square. Hotel staff is very nice, breakfast is very good and plentiful. Hotel was able to arrange a boat taxi tour and gondala ride for a discounted rate which was greatly appreciated. Rooms are clean but small, but all spaces (including restaurants) are small in Venice, so that was expected.

The only issue we had was finding the hotel initially. We ended up having a porter take our luggage for us when he told us he knew where the hotel was located which was incredibly helpful and worth the money. The street isn't on most maps due to how tiny it is and the boat taxis are incredibly expensive, so initially it was difficult to locate. Once we found the hotel, we realized how conveniently located it was and were very happy.

Excellent location, hotel is minutes away from St Marks Square. Hotel staff could not do enough for us.
Room was perfect, large bed. Bowl of fruit in the room on arrival.
We got the public river taxi to St Marks but if you fancy splashing out you can get a private taxi straight to the hotel.
Highly recommend staying here.

Room Tip: We had a canal view room on the fourth floor which was perfect.

We stayed at this hotel for one night during our vacation in Italy. The location is excellent, 2 minutes walk to get to the St Mark' s square. We have stayed at the annex and got a very small room that was extremely disappointing from all aspects: bed size which was even smaller than a queen bed, the view that showed dirty walls and the small bathroom.The staff were nice and helpful. The breakfast was acceptable. I personally do not recommend this hotel especially that it is overpriced for the service you get.

Room Tip: Do not stay at the annex

Just returned from 3 nights in Venice and many more in other areas of Rome. This hotel was lovely, and the staff were exceptional. It's located near St. Marks Square...but far enough away that it's quiet.

Take the #2 vaporetto (taxi bus) to St. Marks Basillica.(I think it's North), it's 7E/pp with luggage. Be careful, we wasted a LOT of time trying to figure out which one of the #2s it is. Make sure to ask the ticket counter which directly as their are 2 different St Mark's drop offs. You want the one with the Dogges Palace. It should go LEFT off the dock, not RIGHT!

Our one night stay at Hotel Colombina was outstanding. The hotel is clean and beautifully decorated with a most kind and helpful staff. It is but a few steps from shops, restaurants and
St. Marks square. Our room (405-ask for it) was clean and looked out over the canal leading under the "Bridge of Sighs" but we were most impressed by the private stairway leading to a private rooftop floral terrace where we enjoyed both after dinner drinks looking over the lights and rooftops of Venice but also breakfast the next morning. This was much more than we hoped for when we booked the room. We would definitely return and stay here again!

This hotel is ideally placed for a break in Venice. We chose this due to the views, and sure enough, we could see theBridge of Sighs from our bedroom window.

The hotel is elegant and beautifully appointed with first class service.

Just be sure to check the tides, and bring boots as required. Much of Venice was under two feet of water twice a day when we went.

When we revisit Venice, we will choose this hotel again.

Room Tip: Ask for one with views of the Bridge of Sighs

This is a very attractive centrally based hotel, just a short walk from St Marks Square and easy walking distance to the Rialto Bridge. We stayed 4 nights in room 407, tucked away in the roof up a short flight of stairs on the 4th floor. It was roomy and beautifully decorated in a typical Venetian style with a beamed sloping roof. The only complaint was that it was a little on the dark side as there was no overhead light just side and table lamps and the only window was fairly small and in an alcove in the corner of the room also there was no room for a stand up shower in the bathroom and you has sit in the bath and use the shower attachment. For our short stay we didn't mind but would have asked to be moved had we been staying any longer. The rest of the hotel was lovely, very comfortable, it has it's own private landing stage and it was great to arrive and leave from there by private water taxi, very grand!!! The staff were all extremely polite, friendly and very helpful throughout our stay and we would use this hotel again.
