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!
