This hotel was a great find (thanks Tripadvisor people!) - central, comfortable, clean and our room was large and airy... and warm when it needed to be. We were close to a myriad of different attractions and restaurants - the whole family made us feel welcome and spent time to make sure we had everything we needed including directions and general information. The kids were well looked after and genuinely treated like guests not noisy intrusions that were being tolerated. Thank you so much for your sincere and warm hospitality - we would recommend you to anyone wanting a great value and family-friendly hotel.

Hotel Colomba is a fantastic family run hotel. The staff is wonderful and helpful with everything we asked. They had recommendations for dinner, instructions on where to find local markets and even where to find a good value for olive oil and vinegar. The rooms are very clean, the maid, (I didn't get her name, and I hate to call her the maid,) even left wine glasses in the room when she noticed we had a bottle of wine. She also ran and got us an extra chair when we were using the computer. She anticipated our every need. Rosanna, and Sabina were very attentive and helpful as well. In addition, the hotel is centrally located to the Accademia, Doumo and an easy walk to the Uffizi Gallery and other local sites.

Hotel Columba is an excellent value. Room was very clean and comfortable. The staff were great and but out an excellent breakfaste every morning. The hotel is in an excellent location within a short walk of everything you likely want to see in Florence. My only complaint was that the room was a little noisy at night. Some sort of machinery was running somewhere nearby. It wasn't so loud that it would wake you up, but it did make it a tiny bit difficult to fall asleep at times.

It is a family-run B&B and it has a great location with 5m walk to the centre, 2m to the Museo Academia (Statue of David-however i highly doubt if it is woth to give 11 euros for just to see one statue) and 10m to the train station. We had a warm and informative welcome and we were given a room upstairs in the apartment of the family. The room was facing backyard so we didnt suffer from any noise from the Street. The room was very clean. There was a variety of toileteries and they were put in abundance. The breakfast was continental and sufficient. The staff would even anticipate your need (new coffee, new plate) before you ask.
However, the stone floor was left bare without any carpet so it was too cold to step on it bare feet and it made the room quite cold as well. It would be better to have more than one electricity outlet too. The bathroom was a bit tiny and i didnt like the towels made from piece of cloth, I would prefer regular towels.
I would recommend it but i am not sure if i would visit again. The staff and location were great but they could invest a bit more in the rooms i think

Room Tip: A room facing backyard would save you from the noise of the street

Based on the other reviews on tripadvisor, we decided to book this hotel and we are very happy that we did. We were there for more than a week and it felt like home away from home. Thanks to Rosanna, Sabina and Michael for making our stay a memorable one. As already reviewed by others, the hotel is situated in a central location - a few minutes walk from the Dumo. We miss the morning cappucino very much! All in all, we had a very pleasant stay in Florence.

Disappointing
We chose this hotel based on reviews read here. Although clean, and the staff was friendly the room was stuffy and loud, the bed horrible and it just wasn’t a great deal. I have been to Florence before and although the location was fine the hotel itself just so-so. You can find better.

Room Tip: ask for a room away from the street

My wife and I stayed here for two nights last week and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The staff, with Sabina in particular, spoke excellent English, were charming and invariably helpful and provided a map, directions to the major sights and recommendations for restaurants. The hotel's location could hardly be faulted, being close to most of the major attractions. Our room was a reasonable size and the bathroom was more than adequate. The TV system is one of the best I have seen in a non-English speaking country hotel with Sky Italia programming providing many English language programmes. Furthermore, if watching an English language programme (film or series)dubbed into Italian, in most cases you could access the original soundtrack by using the remote control. Breakfast was good with a choice of coffee types. The one drawback was the noise from the street. With our room facing the main street, to have the window open resulted in loud traffic noise, particularly in the early morning. My only other down side was parking the car. This was left, on arrival, to be collected from the roadside and taken to a remotely located garage at a cost of €23 per night and returned on departure. A car for use while in Florence is superfluous and walking is the best option. However, these minor moans did not detract from a thoroughly enjoyable stay and I would heartily recommend this hotel to anyone wishing to stay in Florence.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing away from Via Cavour
