Highly recommend Hotel Columba for its staff (and proprietor, Roseanna), location and value. Our room was exceptionally clean and comfortable. Breakfast was very good and served in a very comfortable area. Roseanna and the staff were very efficient and helpful in getting where we wanted to be in Florence. They even have a young computer whiz, Angelo, on staff. Thanks...

We had a pleasant stay at Hotel Colomba. Our room was spacious and clean, and the bathroom was adequate. And yes we got the handicapper room but I have no issues with that. This hotel is about 5 min walk to the Accademia and San Lorenzo. There is a small lift in the old building if you have heavy luggage....

April 30, 2009 My wife and I stayed one night here but that was enough. It was easily the least enjoyable stay during my 3 weeks in Italy. This "hotel" is located in a gritty commercial area near backpackers, street vendors, and hustlers. It is two stories up via a tiny elevator. The non-descript building houses other B & Bs....

As in my former replies I would personally like to thank the many wonderful people who have chosen to stay in our hotel over the years. However I feel obliged to reply to Mr. Alohatripper for a number of reasons. It is a shame that the 'gentleman' in question was disappointed, I do my best to accomodate everyone. However, I...

We searched on trip advisor and found the Hotel Colomba. It was just as the reviews stated. The hotel staff was wonderful. We had a nice, clean room. It was fairly large compared to many other places. We had a lovely breakfast every morning. We could walk anywhere in the city without problems. It was located near the train station...

Our family was visiting Florence for a 2 night stay during a "whirlwind" tour through Italy. We actually chose this hotel because of the fine reviews we read on this sight.

Great location just North of the Duomo. Only a 5 min walk to get there. This place isn't much to look at from the outside, but don't judge it before you go in. My wife did not want to go inside at first, but she was glad she changed her mind. You have to go up to the 1st floor...

A family owned hotel, with spacious rooms, and generous breakfast. English speaking very friendly front desk staff, was very helpful. Free internet access. Hotel is located about 15 minutes from the train station, 3 minutes from Piazza duomo, and 10 minutes from Uffezzi and Ponte Vecchio. A hidden gem of hotels in Florence.
