Basic but good value & friendly helpful staff. Good value and clean hotel 20 mins walk along the river to city. Breakfast is one cereal choice with crossiant and cheese/ ham rolls,lots of good coffee. Staff were all friendly and helpful and spoke English if required.

I don't know how this hotel achieved a 4 star rank. I wouldn't give even a 1 star. The furniture is way too old, beddings were dusty, no cattle, no tea/coffee, no ironing facility ! Plus they charge us 16 euro city tax for 2 nights for a couple because they are so called 4 STAR ! I won't recommend...

We are not a fussy couple and are just happy to be in the beautiful Florence but the hotel was cosy and cute. It was old fashioned but that's what we liked about it. We had a great view from our room and a lovely balcony. It's basic but met our needs. We hired bikes and cycled to the city...

This hotel would be fine with a complete staff retraining schedule, a move northwest by 2 miles and a little wrecking ball action!! Totally run down with nothing beyond a reasonable view (if you get one - we could only see the building next door) to recommend it!! Arriving as complete Florence-virgins, the desk clerk gave us wholly inaccurate public...

This was the most shocking experience of my traveling life! First they tried to keep my passport and after I saw the shocking room rated a 4 star (it should not even earn 1 star!), they refused help or refund. The staff was very aggressive after I voiced my dissatisfaction. Avoid at ALL cost! I feel like they stole my...

Nice hotel with nice staff. A little bit old, but for few days that's really not too bad. Free wifi access in all the areas. Nice and comfortable room with an exciting view. My room was on the third floor, I guess the view is even more splendid when having a higher floor. The location was good. First, near to...

I had the opportunity to stay at Columbus Hotel a few days ago, for business reasons. The staff was very kind and efficient in finding solutions to any request. The building is maybe a little bit old fashioned, but in my opinion it still conveys the atmosphere of a traditional Italian four star hotel and I felt at ease. My...

The front desk staff were always helpful. The hotel is about 20 minutes walk to centre but there are places to see on the way. Room was clean enough but a few things broken and not fixed correctly. Balcony only room for one person to stand on at a time. Breakfast was just OK. We never saw any bugs in...

Staff aren't very friendly. The bus route to the hotel is unreliable and can be tricky. The bed isn't comofrtable. There is no kitchen. The room is basic and decent with a small balcony that had a beautiful view. The worst thing about this hotel was the fact that there's a place across the road that has a live band...

The hotel is OK but at least 30 mins walk away from the centre. The bathroom is very small and doesn't have shower screen so the floor is wet after showering. Wifi is unstable but free. My room has no view because the room is facing the back street.
