We stayed at the Colomba hotel for the 1st 3 days of our honeymoon. The staff were brilliant and so helpful. Their meal recommendations were great and their knowledge and help with our stay was just what we needed. The jacuzzi on the rooftop was lovely and the rooms were spacious and well kitted out. I can't recommend this hotel

I chose this place for a 3 night stay in March 2012 based on TA reviews and I was not at all disappointed with my experience. It was clean, quiet and comfortable, well located - about 6 mins walk to Domo, 3 mins to Academia and 12 to station with friendly and helpful owners. The room and attached shower/toilet were compact but adequate and the usual cold breakfast buffet was ok, with nice coffee made to order.

In terms of valiue for money - particularly taking into account the substantial advance purchase discount from their website - this place would be hard to beat.

Room Tip: I had a room overlooking the internal courtyard; noise was not an issue.

Stayed here on a European trip, nice clean hotel, recently renovated. Basic but comfortable. Nice breakfast.
Quite kid friendly, I have 2 youg children 5 and 2 and it was very suitable. Not too noisy despite being on a busy street.
Reccomend, would stay again.

We stayed at the Hotel Colomba for two nights in December and very much enjoyed our stay. This was our second time at the hotel and we will definitely be staying there the next time we visit Florence. The rooms are spacious, the hotel is impeccably clean, and the coffee is delicious. The location is fantastic, and Rosanna, Sabina & the team really do make their guests feel at home.

Stayed: December 2011

This hotel is situated in a great location within walking distance of the Duomo, the train station, the Accademia, just next to San Lorenzo church. The staff was smiley and lovely and full of great information about the city. They speak impeccable English. The room was spacious (we had the double room upstairs which was great as it opened to the back rather than the street), the breakfast tasty. We definitely recommend this hotel!

Room Tip: ask for the rooms upstairs for extra quiet!

I'd been past this hotel a few times, of course you don't see it because it's upstairs, but it was right next to everything. this weekend I happened to stay there as i had a function to attend and it was a great place. R and M are divine. R is helpful and will give you as much information as you need about Florence, the staff S and P are pleasant and the place runs well. Breakfast is well equipped for long days, the coffee is great and they all make a good coffee to perk you up. I stayed for 4 nights and it was well worth it. And don't be shy to have a chat to them, Good way to find out what's happening in and around.

Room Tip: I had room 7, - no street noise this way.

Hotel Colomba is located about 1km (walking distance) away from Firenza SMN Station. It is not difficult to navigate to the hotel from the station, however, you might want to keep your eyes open to spot their entrance as the simple hotel is located at the second floor, accompanied by a nostalgic gothic lift, which can fit only 3 people at any one point of time.

Upon reaching the hotel, we were astonished at how big the hotel room is. There were 2 of us and the room can actually fit 4 people, sleeping in the room with 2 x Super Single Bed combined and another Super Single Bed. Although the toilet is small, it has the necessary items required.

At the reception, we were briefed on various tourists’ attractions that is surrounding the beautiful city of Florence. The hotel is located extremely close to Academia (3 minutes of waling), where the famous Statue of David, by Michelangelo, resides.

The hotel provides free Wi-Fi and it has SkyTV and we’re so thankful for that. It is very hard to find English-speaking channels at Italy.

The breakfast has a very simple spread and one will have to manage their expectations well. If you are looking for a widespread line of breakfast buffet, you will have to look elsewhere. Then again, my wife and I enjoyed the simple breakfast and that was sufficient for us.

My wife felt that she really like the warmth feeling while staying at the hotel. The hotel seems t be a family business and a family of 4 manages it.

All in all, it was a good stay and the only drawback would be that the hotel does not provide a heating pot or cups in the room. Whenever we require any hot water, we would have to go over to their cafeteria to request for it. Then again, it was a beautiful stay and thank you, Hotel Colomba!
