“basic but nice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

spotless, basic, delightful staff and owners. Great location. Small rooms and baths, European cloths instead of thick towels, limited amenities. Would return because of it's staff and location. I would recommend this for those just needing a place to sleep that is convenient and clean. The staff was always available to share suggestions and ideas.

Room Tip: We were right across from the front desk and were not bothered by any noise....

This hotel is located in a perfect location for walks around Florence. The rooms were of decent size. The breakfast spread was good . The staff was extremely friendly and gave good insights about shopping areas.

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.
