“Good but not the best”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

Venice was one of my honeymoon trips, I stayed last year with my husband three days at this hotel, actually the location is perfect, it is near of river bus station, it takes about seven minutes that if you don't have too much laugages, also it is behind San Marco square, when we entered the hotel our impression was not good, it seems that it is three stars hotel but we realized later that it looks like the most of hotels there, the room was perfect, you feel warm and privacy inside, and room service was very good, also our room has a canal view that gave us the romantic we needed and about the size of the room and bathroom it was very good, our stay included open buffet breakfast but it was very bad, no varities, no quality besides no good service, the staff at the restaurant didn't care to keep tables clean after guests leave and they take time to meet your requests .. concerning the reception staff they were kind but not too much helpful .. totaly our stay was good but next time we will try another hotel.

My family and I stayed at this hotel for one night. It was exactly what I expected from a hotel in Venice. The hotel lobby, hallways and restaurant were very tight but in a charming sort of way (although I'm not sure I could have taken more than one breakfast meal in the very tight dining area). The hotel was clean over all and decorated in an old world style that just added to the experience. The rooms were not overly spacious but worked just fine (we had a double and triple). Both bathrooms were updated and lovely but the double room bath was larger than the triple room bath. The shower leaked a bit, but this seems to be a running theme for showers in Italian hotels. Hotel Colombina was a great experience in a FANTASTIC location.

Our stay in busy Venice was greatly enhanced by our stay at Hotel Colombina. To be overlooking a canal on a slightly quieter section of Venice was magic. Our view took in the Bridge of Sighs & quite often we were serenaded by the the passing gondolas. The staff at this hotel were most helpful & pleasant. The room was spacious, it was clean & well appointed & the breakfasts were generous. What more did we need?
It was so great to be able to return to the hotel just around the corner from Piazza St Mark & escape the hoards of tourists.

Room Tip: A room overlooking the canal is perfect!

We had a wonderful time at Hotel Columbina after a 3 night stay. Arriving by water bus from the airport, it was a short walk to find our hotel from the San Marco Stop. Our families occupied 3 rooms, each with their own style and decor. The Location was perfect behind Piazza San Marco and an easy walk to either the Rialto area or San Marco Square. Having teens, this safe and conveniently located hotel allowed them some freedom and us some piece of mind. The bright white fasad with beautiful window boxes of purple flowers was a perfect backdrop to our canal view of the Bridge of Sighs. Marco at the front desk was great and Alessandro, our porter, were both a great help and helped us secure a water taxi to the train station which picked us up right at our hotel dock. I would recommend this hotel not only for families but also for couples.

We had a wonderful stay. The hotel staff was so nice and helpful. They gave us great ideas for dinner. They also arranged a boat ride for one of the festival that happened the weekend we where there. I can't wait to return to Venice and return to the hotel. Our room was beautiful and the breakfast was wonderful. I can't say enough good thing about this wonderful hotel and staff.

Hotel Columbina in Venice was a wonderful experience! Not only was the location perfecto, but so were the accommodations and the staff. Marco and Alessandro (the porter) were willing to do whatever we needed and greeted us with a smile each time we returned to the lobby! We would definitely stay here again!

Colombina hotel is very close to St Marks Square, not far from Vaporetto stops, and has a good canal (just up from bridge of sighs) location. For a Venice hotel it is probably better that average, but next time we stay in Venice we will pay more and go for a better quality hotel. Stated as 4 stars, but 4 stars ion Venice is 3 anywhere else.

Bathroom tiny in room 400, but the room was perfectly adequate.
Breakfast was included, and it is adequate, but no more.

Staff were very helpful.
Wifi is a bit odd, no blanket wifi, and you need to log out each time you stop browsing (if you were able to connect in first place)!

But wifi way better that our last trip to Italy.

Room Tip: We had an attic room - 400, with a rooftop view over to the east, towards Arsenale, and south to the...
