How to Get There
From the moment we arrived to leaving, service from all staff encountered was faultless, so friendly and professional and went out of their way to help us whenever we asked for anything.
Location of this hotel is perfect for sightseeing and on a romantic spot overlooking the bridge of sighs. We booked a canal view and were not disappointed. The room was spacious and decor was very Venetian - immaculate room with everything we needed. Turn down service in the evening was lovely and always came back to an immaculate room.
The private hotel jetty is great for a little drink and watching the gondolas go by, and for watching people crossing over the bridges.
Breakfast was delicious, a great assortment, fresh and abundant.
We really didn’t want to leave. Could hear the bells from st. Marc’s square from the room, very romantic.
Would return to this hotel in a heart beat - perfect location, perfect service and perfect room. Highly recommended.
You could not get a hotel better located than the Colombina. Situated on the same canal as the Bridge of Sighs, a few minutes for St Mark's Square and only moments from a wide variety of restaurants and shops, you truly feel as though you are getting the full Venetian experience when you stay here.
Rooms are comfortable and decorated in the Venetian style. We paid for a standard room however were upgraded to a Junior Suite which was an unexpected surprise (maybe because we were out of season). The room was spacious, bed comfortable and the bathroom included both a shower and a bath as well as complementary toiletries (shampoo, bath foam, shower cap and cotton buds). Sadly we didn't get a view of the canal but it was still pleasant to look out at the Venetian rooftops from the two windows in our room.
Breakfast was included in our stay and offered a variety of options. These included: fruit juices, coffee and tea, cereals, pastries, fruit, and even bacon and scrambled eggs. I was pleasantly surprised by not only the variety, but also the quality of the food. It is definitely enough to keep you until lunchtime!
The staff were exceptional and always willing to do anything they could to help you. For example, we had an early flight that meant we had to leave the hotel at 4.30am. Not only did they organise the water taxi for us that picked us up from their very own dock, but they also provided us a substantial breakfast box for us before we left.
The hotel also offers a paid 60 minute tour of the canals surrounding the hotel and along the Grand Canal (where you can see all of the main sights) for €35. Although it was nice, there were six people on our boat and only four seats that allowed you to sit outside. It meant that two of you had to sit inside the wooded cabin with a very limited view (see photo). My husband was one of them and did not think that it was worth the money with this view. Definitely find out how many people will be taking the tour before you book this. Instead I would recommend taking the Vaporetto line 1 or 2 and standing outside. You get an amazing view along the Grand Canal and it will only cost you €7.50 for the 45 minute trip. I have also seen on other reviews that the hotel provided a free tour to Murano, however we were not offered this so I'm not sure if they are still running it which is a shame.
We will definitely stay here again on our next visit to Venice, but not take the canal tour!
- Quality of breakfast
- Canal tour not worth the money
TIP: Don't pay for a water taxi to the hotel (€120 private / €35 pp sharing). If you are coming from Marco Polo, take the Vaporetto to St Mark's Square/St Zachariah (€14) and it is less than a 5 minute walk to the hotel.
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this Hotel. Staff were so lovely and very helpful. Great breakfast. A nice trip available from hotel to Murano too! Great location too, within walking distance of everything, so central.
Bedroom lovely and beds so comfortable.
Highly recommend this hotel.
This hotel staff went well out the way to ensure that we had everything that we needed was available. An example is on the last day we were taking a water taxi at 0300 to the airport, so to be sure that we did not starve, they fixed a great box breakfast for our family!
Another thing, for the first morning there without any prompts from my family, I got a birthday card, an extraordinary bag of sweets, and just a great surprise since no one had clued in the staff it was my birthday!!
We will be staying again anytime we go back to Venice.
This hotel is conveniently located for many of Venice’s attractions. It is beautifully presented throughout with comfortable beds. First class hotel with staff that look after you and nothing us too much trouble. Their grasp of so many languages is awesome too. Wonderful breakfast as well. Highly recommend a stay here.
