  • Family with children

    The hospitality of all staffs is perfect. Very comfortable. Good for family. Very near from museums, view spots.

    If shower head is movable, there is nothing to say.

  • Group of friends
    8.8

    Excellent location and well priced. Excellent and fresh continental breakfast included in room rate

  • Older travelers
    6.6

    Good location with very helpful staff. The staff all spoke very good english which made getting information very easy.

    The room was quite small and pokey. The hotel is located on the second floor and access was rather cramped.

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    The staff is fabulous, and extremely helpful and nice. The breakfast is excellent, with a great selection of everything one could want in a continental breakfast. The location is good, though I discovered it is very easy to get lost in Florence.

    It is a cute little hotel, very close to the Duomo and the Galleria and everything else. The owners are friendly and helpful, breakfast was good, the bed was ample and the location is top notch. Free wi-fi is always appreciated.

    The bathroom was a little small and the towels are very strange--minor complaints though

    Fabulous staff - so helpful and always cheerful. Lovely spacious room. Great breakfast and the best coffee we had on our entire trip. Location is fantastic. Free and fast & reliable internet! Thank you for a great stay. We will return next time we're in Florence.

    Owners and staff were extremely friendly. They're English is excellent and they go out of their way to make you feel at home. Breakfast is terrific - this place is a real find. Great location, very reasonable rates - one of the best values I've ever had in over 10wks traveling in Italy.

  • Family with children
    8.8

    The feel of a bed and breakfast was nice. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

  • Family with children
    9.6

    Staffs were very kind and friendly! Hotel was not so big, but the room was clean. It located a few minutes walk from Duomo.

  • Family with children
    6.2

    It is adequately located, very close to the most important turistic atractions in the city. I also liked the personal service provided by staff. It is clearly a "familiar" type of hotel.

    What I saw in Booked.net is not related with what I found when arrived at the hotel. I was unpleasantly surprised when I found that the hotel is at a second floor with a very small elevator which did not even allow us to take our baby in his stroller in it. It is clearly a family hotel with so few services and attended by the owners, who by the way I have to say are very nice people, however it was not described like that at all at web page. In my opinion it should not be classified as a 3 star hotel. This is more a residence type hotel. I was not happy with what I found since it was not what I was looking for nor what was offered at Booked.net

  • Older travelers
    7.8

    The staff was very helpful and knowledgeable. The location was wonderful. The facilities were acceptable and clean. The room was large and the bathroom was utilitarian. The breakfast was good.

    Our room was noisy; the mattress on the bed was only fairly comfortable. However, we needed a room near the elevator because of limited mobility, and the staff accomodated this need. The room was not outfitted very nicely. Despite the room size, there were only bureau drawers below the armoire closet. No rugs, but therefore no safety hazard. The bathroom offered no shelf space, but there were several hooks for towels and a hair dryer.

  • Family with children
    7.8

    The hotel was clean and pleasant for central Florence.

    The entrance to this hotel is hard to find and not nice. Once you are inside it is simple but pleasant.

  • Couple
    9.2

    We loved the personal touch of all the wondeful staff at Hotel Colomba. They were extremely helpful and very warm, they made you feel like you were staying in your own home rather than at a Hotel.

  • Single
    7.4

    Very good staff

    A small bedroom with a ridiculously tiny bathroom, so cramped that the bidet was placed in the shower cubicle.

  • Couple
    6.2

    Excellent location - around the corner from David and down the road from the Duomo. Plenty of shops, cafe's and things to see and do.

    While not rude, less than enthusiastic staff (not warm or friendly). The room was a little unclean, with dead mosquitoes splattered on the walls and ceilings. Breakfast was very basic. Staff treated the hotel like their own home, and would eat and talk and watch tv rather loud until 11-11.30pm each night.
