3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Stayed here for 2 nights last week, 2A and 2Ch. Second time visiting Florence and first time in this hotel. Location is excellent, walking distance to most sights. Extremely helpful staff and clean room. We were right opposite reception, few noises during night but nothing major. Breakfast was very good. Would recommend this place.

We cannot access to wifi during all days in Firenze. I'm sure whoever cannot use Wifi in their rooms. Additionally, I found about 12 Mosquitos, and kill them. Hotel colomba gave mosquito killing equipment(electronics), but it could not prevent bug's attacks. If you endure aboves, challenge there!

The location is 200 meters from Duomo.Most of the sightseeings are near.The room was very clean.The staff was extremely kind and the breakfast was very good.The only problem was the internet(bad signal).

this hotel has the best location and best service the lady at the reception was very polite and very helpful she did advise me about the parking situation and took care of it . i do not regret a moment booking with this hotel it is walking distance from all downtown the only thind that entrance to the hotel is very confusing

This is a fabulous, very centrally located hotel (less than 5 minutes walk to the Duomo). We'd read all the reviews prior to arriving so had hoped the hotel would live up to expectations and, indeed, it did. Look out for the Leonardo da Vinci Museum and you'll see the signs for the hotel on the left hand side. Yes, the lift is small but it saves you the trek up to the second floor for Reception. We were greeted warmly on arrival and, as agreed prior to arriving, a safe place was shown for us to store luggage whilst we went out exploring. Staff at Reception took the time to show us a map of Florence, pointing out the relevant sights and how to get there. Despite the fact that they were busy we were made to feel very welcome. The rooms themselves are great. Large room, simply furnished, beds very comfortable, bathroom a bit tiny but perfectly adequate. The air con worked like a dream - it was 40 degrees outside so very welcome. We had an early flight the next morning so would have missed breakfast but the hotel provided us with a breakfast box - water, melba toast, apple and apricots. Highly recommend this hotel. Just wish we'd been able to stay for longer.

Clean, good sized room. No fridge or tea/coffee facilities let the room down. We were in a room close to the breakfast area so got a bit noisy when they are setting up for breakfast. Staff super friendly and helpful. Location pretty central.

Nice hotel in the centre of Florence. Can walk everywhere very easily. Hotel entrance is via the Da Vinci museum, small / old lift so beware if you have loads of luggage. Reception swift check in showed us a map and made some good recommendations of places to eat and grab a ice cream. Room was fresh and recently refurbished, big bathroom with a great shower. Bed comfortable with awesome pillows. Breakfast was ok it did the job. The staff make fresh hot coffee for you if you want it. Only downside directly outside our room was a sofa and chairs and books. This meant that people meet there early in the mornings and later at night. This wasn't the end of the world for us but for some people it could be more of a issue. Overall good stay.

great accommodation in an excellent location!! The staff was helpful in all ways, the room was clean and comfortable, and the breakfast was complete. I would recommend this hotel for anyone staying in beautiful Florence who is in need of a good accommodation in a perfect location! Thank you to the staff!

Although we asked for at quiet room, Our room was right next to the breakfast buffet, which woke us up every morning at 7.30. The breakfast was only average, what you expect of a hostel, but low standard for a hotel. The only hot food on the three morning we had breakfast was some chickpeas and scrambled eggs(no bacon). The waitress was nice and made us nice fresh espresso every morning. The room in itself was nice and clean and the air condition was perfect! Altogether, due to noise and poor breakfast I'll probably choose another hotel next time.

I was extremely disappointed with this hotel. I depend on TripAdvisor for all of my hotel choices, and this hotels rating definitely led me astray. Pros: - good location - clean Cons: - our room was located literally right next to the reception desk. I am used to the noises of cities and can sleep fine through that...but when you sell a room that is right next to a 24 hour reception desk how do you expect the guests to sleep? People come to visit reception all through the night, then we hear the creaking swinging door opening and closing all night from reception, noisy breakfast room in the morning (oh ya, the room is also in between the reception and breakfast room). What made me even more upset about this was that people wrote the EXACT same complaints about this EXACT room on TripAdvisor in 2015, and they are STILL giving this room to people. I wish I would have seen those reviews before booking. There was also a terrible smell in this room (also noted a couple years ago in a review). Clearly they need to keep this room open for the money and are willing to sacrifice their guests sleep and sanity (since guests have been vocal about this room and it is still being offered).
