So we stayed at this hotel in 2018 and we loved it so much we came back. I’ve also recommended a couple of friends to stay here in 2020 so I am a fan. However…..we were let down by a few things this time round which unfortunately would make me think twice about recommending. To start off with the positives…. The hotel is lovely and although some people moan about the location as it’s about a 20 min walk from the centre, we actually really enjoyed the walk along the river and the neighbourhood you can also walk through is very trendy with some nice bars. The room is a good size and is clean. It will also be cleaned daily if you want! The staff are very friendly. The breakfast is really good, as too is the bar. …..Now for the not too good. Whereas previously we were at the end of a corridor (119 - in 2018) and the room was quiet, this time we didn’t quite get the same experience. This time we were in room 127 and our neighbours next door as well as people directly above us, we’re not the quietest of people and we could hear everything!!! We had next door getting, how shall I put it, amorous (?) at 2am in the morning so we really didn’t appreciate the noises coming from their room (if you use your imagination) but hopefully not every guest is quite as noisy!! ….then…in the room above us, they were arguing one morning which woke us up at around 600am. In addition we could hear every tap being turned on, shower running and toilet flushing. The only other little thing was that they didn’t replenish the small bottles of water left in the room. We were there for 3 nights and ended up having to buy a bottle from the bar. For a 4*, we aren’t used to this as normally water in the room each day is a given. Other than that, we still enjoyed our stay, albeit not quite as perfect as our 1st visit.

The scenery is good, the riverside, quiet in the middle of noisy. The location is good, there are many restaurants around, especially the Italian restaurant and an ice cream shop on the corner. Don't be afraid of the number of people in the queue. Good service, arrange for someone to wait, and be responsible. However, if you are not interested in the hotel, please consider.

I visited Florence with my two daughters from March 19 to March 24, staying at AdAstra. OK. So this is a gorgeous Italian villa, which is highly pleasing. But even more pleasing was the melting away of any stress when we saw that the staff here only wanted to make our life easy. We didn't feel awkward once when asking the usual traveller questions. Normally, I find interaction can be limited within the hospitality business...people seem busy. But here they find time for you and remain highly visible throughout the day, always on hand.(And they are busy too). They are ready with a fresh mask to offer when you leave yours upstairs too! The place itself is lovely . It has its little quirks, but it is an ancient building and that goes with the territory. The bed was very comfortable and the sheets changed every two days (wonderful). I was able to borrow an iron and ironing board for the whole stay. It was always a delight to return to our rooms at the end of the day. I found my room very peaceful, . We were provided with a wide choice of food at breakfast , including toast, eggs , croissants, gorgeous yogurt, cheeses, cakes, granola and cereals, tea and coffee. Reception were happy to book our vineyard experience and arrange a table at an Italian speaking, no website restaurant. They arranged our departure taxi too ..which was there before we got to the big outside door! The location in Oltrarno was one we savoured. We were able to walk everywhere all week. Boboli Gardens were beautiful, and the galleries everything we wished for. Resaurants we particularly liked were Trattoria Vasari and Trattoria Giovanni. Again, top notch service with a welcoming warmth from the hosts. Fortunately there is a lift , too.( The 61 step trudge to my room had me puffing and panting and this was my guilty pleasure.) We found a Carrefour Express about 300m away. Turn left on coming out of AdAstra and cross into the square. You will see it on the right. In conclusion, a big thank you to the staff at AdAstra. We will spread the word.

We just got back from Florence and our stay at the St. Regis was an absolute delight. It met our expectations of what a hotel when traveling to Florence should look like. More important was the level of service from arrival to departure. The front desk was friendly and efficient. The appointments in the room, the size of the suite and the small touches and amenities of the suite were exactly what one hoped to experience when in Florence. We had breakfast everyday and the dining room staff was efficient, attentive and mindful. I especially want to recognize the concierge staff, specifically Andre and Yuri, who helped to make our trip memorable through their advice in helping us plan the four days we spent at the hotel. They recommended a cooking Italian experience that was phenomenal and far exceeded our expectations. I highly recommend all visitors to ask for The Cooking Touch experience. Their assistance was instrumental in aiding me to resolve a personal thorny issue that arose during my visit. Their commitment, advice and problem solving abilities were extremely helpful.

We booked the appartment for a short stop at florence. It was cheap so we weren't expecting much. First task was to find the place. Even with the exact adress it was hard to find because no sign/... was located nearby. The entrance is an old and ugly door, where you have to call the owner first so that he can give you the code for the lock. You go upstairs a small, steep and narrow stairway. There an old lady welcomes you who barely speaks english or another foreign language but we managed to communicate. Everything looked old and worn, but okay.... The big issue was our room which was absolutely disgusting. The smallest problem were the furniture which were old and definitly need to be replaced, but with that the shortcomings just started. The walls showed a lot und partly huge water damages, dead insects had left bloody stains on the wall, the floor between bath and bedroom was damaged, so the door couldn't be closed, over the shower was a hose from the a.c. for the condensed water which dropped continuously and also begun to go moldy, the shower in general was untidy and germinal and there was generally mould all over the place - in almost every corner. The "highlight" was a approximatly 1,5 m² huge mould spot behind one of the cupboards. We described the problems to a customer support stuff of the portal where we booked. He contacted the owner but couldn't help us because the owner wasn't cooperative and just got angry. Of course we didn't get any compensation....

Traveler beware. Their photographer is very skilled. The entrance in the photos is exactly how that part of the hotel looks. However, everything else is very different. Starting point, while the GPS will take you to the right spot, there are really no indicators to confirm you are in the correct spot. We arrived in the evening (dark outside) and that made it much harder to see any signs. When you approach the building there is a set of stairs & large double doors - when you walk in, there are no lights - so you need to find the switch & turn them on. Then, you have to walk up three stories (approximately 15 flights of stairs) to get to the actual entrance of the hotel. There is a small lift to put your luggage in, which can be helpful if your bags don’t exceed 200lbs…so it’s either you, or your luggage but unlikely it’s both. When we got to the front desk, they were polite, checked us in, and escorted us to our room on the second floor. We were guided to a set of small rough wooden stairs, unlike anything I have seen in Italy. I am an average height male, and my shoulder width barely fit on the stairs never the less carry my luggage. We made our way up the narrow two flight stairwell, and were shown our room. Our room was tiny. Minimal space between the bed & the wall. The upside is, it did have a massive window with a wonderful view of the city. We had a long train ride in that evening & the whole time we said we cannot wait to lay down on a nice soft bed. After climbing 15+ flights of stairs & walking into our room, we plopped on our bed that felt more like a slab of marble. Honestly, it would have been softer to take all the bedding & create a little space on the floor to sleep. Our bathroom was a nightmare. It was a corner shower, and the two outside walls were connected by magnets & folded out - not that great for keeping the shower contained. The shower drain filled up several inches so you showered while standing in a puddle of anything you washed off your body. They advertise that they have air conditioning. However, It’s not really air conditioning- it’s a thermostat to control only heat. We came in April & we couldn’t get the room to cool down with exception to opening the massive windows (no screens, not a great idea) If you come in the summer time, good luck. Paper thin walls. My wife & I were woken up to hearing our neighbors bathroom habits, grunts and all. Although we were 7 stories up you can still hear any conversation had on the streets. Since we got in so late, we stayed up till 02:00am searching for other hotels in Florence & promptly checked out the next morning. They refused to refund our money since they provided us a room, albeit the room provided didn’t match any photos, or descriptions of said room. If you don’t mind climbing 15+ flights of stairs up 5 stories, to come or go, narrow stairs, marble slab beds, paper thin walls, showers connected by a magnet, then this could work for you. However, you c

My family of four came to stay here during our first trip to Italy and we had no idea what to expect. 7Florence B&B completely blew us away in every category! Location: Perfectly situated next to public transit (train station, light rail station, close to the bus station) and near restaurants and shopping. Staff: The most wonderful people you could ever meet! They went out of their way to recommend fantastic restaurants, sightseeing, and even booked some reservations for us. For breakfast (due to covid restrictions) they served us from their excellent assortment of fresh pastries, meat, bread, and other yummy treats. Room: Since there were four of us we stayed in the 2 bed apartment with a great view of the city area. Everything was super clean and the room included a refrigerator, microwave, stove, utensils, and more. Since we were nestled close to a busy area we were provided with earplugs (I'd recommend using them as there were various sirens throughout the night). Overall: When we come back to Florence in the future we will will be booking at 7Florence B&B again, and every time.

We just got back from spending 5 nights at the Ottantotto Hotel in Florence and would recommend it. The hotel is in the Oltrarno area of Florence, across the river from the major sites, but only a 10-15 minute walk away. The area is much calmer and local but still buzzing with activity and with tons of great restaurants, artisan workshops, cafes and pretty squares. The hotel itself is a beautifully restored home with a total of 8 guest rooms and a small garden on the ground floor. We stayed in the basic room and were very comfortable despite its relatively small size. Details and design were well thought out and it was spotlessly clean. The breakfast was pretty good, though we both thought it was a bit strange they wanted to charge 3 Euros additional for a scrambled egg at a place like that. The system for after hours self-checkin was great and I wish more hotels would do it that way!

We spent 2 nights here during our 1st time in Florence. The location was superb, very close to the train station and only a couple alleys away from the famouse Duomo. There were lots of stores and restaurants nearby, so it's always a busy area and convenient, you'll never feel alone. The room was clean and it also smelled really good. The bathroom was small but adequate. We stayed in the double room and it was good for 2 people. There was a sitting sea with a small desk and chair, and a cupboard with a tiny safe and hangers. We loved the blackout curtains. Breakfast was in a small dining room by the reception area. There were lots of sweets, cereals, some cold cuts, and sliced cheese. They also had 1 kind of cereal, some fresh fruits, and a coffee/espresso machine. We walked everywhere and only took a bus once to get to Michelangelo square because we didn't want to climb hehe. Will certainly recommend this hotel to those who travel with a certain budget and not fussy about hotel rooms. They have a small elevator so you dont have to lug your luggage up the stairs. The hotel shared the building with residential apartments, the building door is locked after a certain time and you use your hotel key to get in after hours.

My wife and I enjoyed an excellent stay at the Hotel River for three nights in the Suite Luxury room category. This room type appears very spacious by Florence standards and the room cost was reasonable. The view from the balcony overlooking the Arno was stunning both day and night (for reference, it's far enough to the east that you cannot see the Ponte Vecchio). The hotel has a very modern design, with primarily white and black finishes and mirrors used extensively to make spaces feel bigger. The shower configuration in our room could have been improved, as each shower yielded significant water on the floor outside. There were some fairly strong incense sticks in the room when we arrived. My wife is sensitive to smells, so we put these outside. The location of the hotel was ideal for us, but may not be for all travelers. It's spot on the river provides great views, but walks to many of the major sites take a little time (generally 15-20 minutes - a great opportunity to explore the city). We did not have dinner at the hotel, but breakfast was good (fairly typical buffet). We had drinks at the charming courtyard bar each evening, which was surprisingly empty. While all staff provided great service, Matteo at the bar and breakfast was worth noting. He was professional and courteous, remembering our coffee orders at breakfast after only one day and providing nice detail on the wines we were drinking. We would definitely consider the Hotel River for our next trip to Florence.

Visiting Florence is always a joy as the city is stunning in every way. If you want a calm base away from the crowds, this is the place for you. It is extremely well connected to the city centre but quiet at night for a good nights sleep.I went just before the travel restrictions eased so was a little apprehensive but Italy is very safe as they are still strict.. If you are coming from Peretola aeroport it's only about 4 stops so about 20 minutes by metro which saves time and energy. You can get into the Centro storico by metro or train from Rifredi, in about 20 mins. The checkin was well organised and polite. I speak italian which helps. They are business like and polite and will be helpful. This is not a tiny pensione so expect a less family feeling. The room was really confortable , large and warm for a solo traveller..it was not noisy. One only idiosyncracy is the lack of kettle but frankly who stays in their room in Florence? That was also not a problem as there is a vending machine near the gym and a bar. I was too busy to use the facilities this time. I enjoyed breakfast a lot. It was mainly scrambled eggs or boiled eggs with bacon for me. Italians do not like their food boiling but it was hot. There was a huge selection of lovely cakes, pastries and cereals with fruit and yoghourts. The staff were lovely and very helpful. Most people wore masks walking around as it was expected by law, I think. I get the impression that it is a hotel used by business people, families visiting Careggi Hospital or more independent travellers who are focussed on sightseeing. I did not see large coach parties during my week stay. The area is partly residential and partly industrial close to a huge Coop but I think it's perfect as a base to explore away from the centre. I will stay again so thank you to all staff for their kindness.

We stayed two nights in this hotel ... No negative report to do ... Central location.. very clean room .. silent ... . With friendlyness and gentleness at the reception.. We found this hotel almost by chance ... The weekend was the one of the Florence Carnival so many facilities were complete.. Fortunately we held the last room left ... Experience more than positive.

Can only agree with what other reviewers have said: this is a small-ish, clean and comfortable hotel made special by the genuine focus on good customer service from all the staff. Special mention to Michele (forgive the spelling) who is one of those people who genuinely wants everyone to have a good time and enjoys helping them out even though he was obviously run off his feet a lot of the time. The distance wasn't a problem for us - it's a simple 10 minute walk straight along the road from Dante's statue next to Santa Croce. It is about as far again from the Duomo as SMN station is to it though, so too far with suitcases on cobbled roads in heat. The roof terrace views of the Florence skyline as the sun sets and picks out the towns in the hills around it were a definite plus, as was the hotel's relaxed views on the honesty bar or just taking your own up to sit and enjoy. The riverside location suited us too - if you're happy to mix with the locals and try out afew basic Italian phrases then this is a great spot for heading where they do for aperitivo. You can either head down in the riverside park (just a basic outdoor bar but very relaxed and friendly and full of locals catching up) or a 10 minute walk up the main road that goes past the hotel away from the river and turn right at the old gatehouse (now in the middle of a roundabout) where you'll find afew decent street bars & restaurants (and a large Coop round the corner). I would have given this 5 stars to reflect the hotel's comforts and great customer service ethos, but for two points: like most of Italy's hotels in converted historic buildings the rooms have been built into wherever they could be fit (it took a couple of days to work out the best route to breakfast through the maze), and on our first night we were put into a ground floor room which looked to be their disability-adapted room. It was just as clean and comfortable as the other rooms but we could see pedestrians' heads as they passed (there are shutters on the windows though). We were moved to the second floor for the rest of the week which was fine. The other thing I would recommend the hotel changes next time they refurbish is the breakfast room - it would be great as a wine bar with its all-white decor, quirky seating and big curved tables at various heights, but not so great for seating guests at breakfast. No doubt social distancing was a factor but I doubt it could accommodate everyone arriving for breakfast in normal times either (you could take a tray away), and even then you're sitting around a big table with other guests, and we could see afew groups who'd travelled together negotiating to be able to sit with each other. Not something that spoiled our stay at all, just something that would make the hotel even better if changed. All in all though a great base for a week and would happily return.

The breakfast is very good, and the variety is much better than the big hotel. Victory is fresh in things. Said to be ten o'clock. In fact, he will wait for you to eat. Because the place is not big, I know which guest has come and which one has not come yet. It usually ends at eleven o'clock. Moreover, the dining is in a small garden, very comfortable environment. The regular room that was booked was a bit small. But it is clean and comfortable. It was postponed for a day and it was good to upgrade a room with a living room. The sofa in the living room is also a folding bed. Although we can't use two, many friends may need it. They are very intimate to provide a room for three or four people, making it easy for families to travel. great.

I give this lovely hotel full 5 stars. It waw well located just a few blocks from the duomo. The hotel was super cosy - one could really feel the past decades by all the old furnitures and decorations of the hotel. And the garden, even in december rain, a lovely oasis. The hotel staff was super helpful andd friendly. Our room was very quiet. Covid was well noted as there was hand sanitizers available around the hotel and breakfast was pre-ordered and served to your table. And what a delicious breakfast it was.

My wife and I just returned from 2 weeks in Italy. We had been to this glorious country many times before; yet, together we had never done a holiday in Florence and Venice. Holiday perspective changes as your life changes. We did our research and my wife has discovered GOOP as a very reliable source of interesting, value for money and interesting restaurants, hotels, sights to visit and shopping. Also they will direct the average Joe to “non tourist” locales. In researching Florence, we needed a place that we would be happy at for a full week. GOOP suggested Villa Cora. Of course, the photos looked stunning (sometimes they don’t do a place justice), but the reality is no photos could do this magnificent place justice. There are not enough superlatives to define Villa Cora. Our key to service and quality, boils down to the caliber of the staff and the happiness that they display at work. We make it a point to get to know the folks who wait on us. We find it so interesting to understand how the locals work, details about their families, careers, etc. this information is the key to better understanding the culture of the place you are visiting. The staff at Villa Cora seemed a bit extraordinary….they of course ticked all of the “service boxes” one would expect at a five star hotel. Most importantly, they spoke individually about their happiness getting up for work every day. They used the word “family” when describing co-workers and management. They had long tenure and none of them, when pushed, intended to leave the place. The property itself must be seen to be believed. We were there in late February during the pandemic, so it was a bit more than half full. Villa Cora is set about a mile out of Florence. Some might think of this as a negative, we thought it made it even more desirable. Florence is a sightseeing town. Each day we would spend hours in town, have lunch and return to our “home in the country” around 5. It was a unique break from “in-town” holiday venues. It has a large pool and restaurant outside as well as a second edifice which houses the spa and more rooms. Our room was decorated with old art, furniture, and original frescoes on the ceiling. There was a huge amount of storage. The bed, pillows and linens were superior. We ate twice in the dining room, as the food was great…we returned because, again: the people. Each night after dinner we would retire to the small and cozy subterranean bar…we hurried there after dinner, again to see our smiling wait staff. Arielle has created an incredible team of Human Resources. They are happy, loyal and help one another out with personal and professional issues. Leaders in other hospitality venues should study the staff at Villa Cora to understand how a very well led team performs. It is very tough to find any negatives about Villa Cora, except that at some point one must return to the realities of the real world and check out!

We just completed a 10 night trip in Italy and stayed 3 nights at Hotel Spadai and it was our favorite hotel of the trip. There were 3 of us and we requested 3 single beds and got exactly that. The beds were really comfy and the room was very spacious and had a large bathroom with a second sink area that was great for getting ready. They provided enough amenities for all 3 of us which we did not get in the other hotels we visited. There were bathrobes , slippers , plenty of towels and toiletries for each of us , there were also shower caps, and ear plugs, it was a Nice touch. They also did turn down service and left us chocolates. Breakfast was included in our room rate and it was awesome with fresh fruit, meat , cheese, eggs etc. There was plenty to choose from and it was a great way to start our busy day. The staff was attentive and very gracious. The location was perfect as it was close to the Duomo and everything you needed to get to in Florence. We were able to walk the city very easily. It was also very quiet considering it was in such a central location. Front desk, bartender and bell man were all great. We requested a taxi to the train station and it was there on time waiting for us. In addition , they have an atrium on the top floor that gives you a panoramic view of the city . We all loved it and would definitively stay again if back in Florence. Bravo!

We got the room with a large bed and bunk beds. Service was awesome! They allowed earlier check in because our train arrived to the city before checking, and could arrange very late check out (for a fee, of course), because we had a night train. Everything was great! Very modern amenities, large spaces, clean, working A/C (apparently a luxury), small fridge, coffee machine, nice towels, attentive staff... only drawback could be that it is two flights up, so if might be a challenge. Other than that, this is great! I would certainly return during my next visit. Thank you for everything!

I recently stayed at Granduca for 2 nights. Location wise it isn't that far at all from the city centre, about a 7-minute cab. Rooms were clean, spacious and were perfect for my family. With a decent breakfast and very helpful and kind staff; I have nothing negative to say. My only possible complaint was that the Wi-Fi signal was a little weak from my room, and it did become a little frustrating at times. Overall, great trip and awesome value for money.

Let me talk about the advantages of this hotel: the health is very good, out of 5 points to 4 points; the location is very good to give full marks, the train station is 5 minutes walk, the nearest attraction, Santa Maria del Fiore, go out and go straight, go straight Walking is the famous shopping street in the big brand; the hotel has good quality breakfast, delicious cake, hand-washed coffee and outdoor terrace. Then you have to vomit! Poor facilities, out of 5 points can only give 1 point: the elevator is small and broken, squeaky; the bed in the room is small, the quilt is thin, the air conditioner is not strong, the water flow in the bath hot water is also small, the toilet will also be anti-water... The service could have been given a pass, but only 2 points were given: the last day found that the cleaning secretly took away a whole pack of chocolates we put on the table... and we blamed ourselves for buying a lot. Putting it on the table may feel like taking one and you won't find it, but if we buy it by head, we will not remember the wrong number. Moreover, the cashier is also kept, you can order the number... although 5 euros of small things, but the feeling of being uncomfortable to the residents, this is taboo! Fortunately, shopping is arranged on the last day, advise everyone not to put the valuables in the hotel, it must be locked in the suitcase!

Booked this hotel as part of a package deal but had no complaints about it. Firstly, the staff in the hotel are lovely and will do anything for you. The hotel itself might initially look a little way outside of Florence on a map but it is actually in a very good location that is not too far a walk right into the centre. The breakfast room isn't large. This was only a problem on 1 day when I think quite a few guests were perhaps going on some sort of trip so there was a queue for the breakfast room. Other days were ok though.

We stayed as two couples in this lovely hotel. It is very centrally located, within walking distance from most of the sites / attractions and it overlooks the river on one side and a church in a small courtyard on the other. We stayed in standard rooms, which were fairly small but they served our purpose well. They were very clean and the bed was very comfortable with good quality, crisp cotton sheets that were changed daily. The breakfast was plentiful with lots to choose from - there was fresh fruit, yoghurt, meats, smoked salmon, cheese, hams, cooked scrambled eggs, crispy bacon and the usual toast, rolls, croissants, cakes etc. the quality of the breakfast was good and we never tired of it during our 4 night stay. The staff were very efficient and friendly. The reception staff were always on hand to book a restaurant or tickets for a museum or other attraction. Special mention goes to Claudio the barman who went above and beyond to make our stay extra special - he kept us fed and watered and was simply amazing! Thank you Claudio! We would definitely return.

I must admit this is probably the worst managed "hotel" in Florence by far, and we didn’t even get a chance to stay here. Our family member had a wedding in March that was cancelled due to the COVID-19 virus. All of our family and friends were all able to secure refunds in Florence at all hotels & Airbnb and really shows the wonderful nature of the Italians and the fantastic customer service you can expect in Florence. Unfortunately, we cannot say the same for The Moon Boutique Hotel & Spa. We were declined any refunds even due to our unforeseen circumstances, would give them zero stars if possible! however, we were offered credit valid for a year. Although there appears to be an intention of sincerity, it is however completely useless to us as we don’t know when and if we will ever be in Florence again after this or even next year or who knows to be really honest as travel is so restricted post-COVID-19. We Thought to contact the General Manager directly to have the matter resolved with him and get some sort of refund, unfortunately, we should have read the reviews about him before making a booking here. He has proven to be completely robotic in his email response to our family and clearly is not favoured by previous guests at this hotel. I do realize Italy has been hit harder than most countries. Surely this is a time to be helpful, understanding and accommodating rather than being firm on procedures completely disregarding this Virus and how it has affected peoples travel. If the hotel cannot honour a refund due to this virus it is completely indicative of their values, standards and the establishment on a whole. The problem with some of these boutique hotels around the world is that not being part of a big group they hire subpar managers and a team that are only driven by profit to make their bosses happy. When things head south don’t expect any honourable or top class service you would from a hotel chain or group. Never been so disappointed. Avoid!

We planned to stay in this hotel for 3 nights 04.03-07.03 and booked paid for our stay before our arrival. Due to coronavirus we decided not to travel to North Italy and wrote the hotel to get refund (our bookinf was no ref). At first they offer us to change dates and gave us 6 months but after all they decided to send full refund. They are very pleasant, always respond our letters. We are very glad to them. I hope after coronavirus mess we'll visit Italy and of course i'll chose this hotel fir their kindness.

Isolotto - Legnaia
I stayed in this hotel with my friend for two nights, in a twin room with breakfast included. The first point in favor is definitely on the position. It is located a few steps (5 mins walk) from the tram station which takes you to the heart of Florence in 20 minutes. The staff is very kind and very attentive to the customer's needs. Especially in this delicate moment due to the pandemic, the staff observed all the anticovid rules by wearing a mask and serving breakfast at the tables. Another plus is the cleanliness of the structure and rooms. My room had all the comforts, very clean and above all everything in perfect condition. I will definitely recommend this hotel to my friends and family.

Campo di Marte
Nothing to fault in regards to cleanliness and service. It is a little distance from the centre. However, there is a shuttle bus from the hotel and bikes available for use. We mostly walked or used the buses. You need to purchase a ticket beforehand this can be done at one of the many tabbacconists but very cheap and a great way to get around. It's about a 30-40 min walk to the centre. 10 mins by taxi at around €10-15. Be aware there is a €5 per person per night city tax! Also the nibbles in room are not complimentary and not cheap! I would say it is a little expensive in the bar also. For a Pimms and a Gin and Tonic it was €25. It did come with olives and some nuts which were not charged for, so not too bad tbf. We didn't eat in the restaurant as we like to eat out. The menu though limited, looked good and maybe if we'd stayed longer we may have tried it. Please see my review of the Vecchia Osteria Del Nacchero. What a steak. Only 8 mins walk away! Well worth a visit. We found Florence to be a lively vibrant, city. Beautiful architecture, wonderful food and friendly people. South of the river is particularly our kind of place. Make the effort to explore it and you will find it rewarding. Worth saying if you make the effort to at least wish good day, evening. Please, thank you etc. You may not always get the pronunciation correct but I definitely think the effort is appreciated. Don't worry most speak good English (Certainly the hotel staff do) so you will get by easy enough. If arriving by train from Pisa try booking the shuttle and train on line. It will be cheaper than getting a ticket at the office in the Airport. The booth is on the right as you walk through the arrivals gate. It was about €40 for 2 tickets. On the way back we booked on line which was about half price! Be aware that at peak times the train is extremely busy. Packed in like sardines is a good description! Also be aware if you use the city taxis to or from Florence Station. That there is a luggage tax. So a one way trip to or from the train station with luggage to the hotel is €25. The hotel and the staff are exactly what you would hope to find. We had a very comfortable stay and made use of the pool and the spa. We had a lovely stay so thank you all.

The style is very good, the decoration is very much my heart! Artistic explosion! The room was small and the ceiling was somehow high. Clean, courteous service, you can charge for parking, and the price is reasonable (more than 100 a night in the old town of Florence almost). The location is fairly central, on the edge of the old city. If you do n’t find it troublesome, you can actually stop outside and walk in. The parking fee is much cheaper. In the morning, it wasn't common.

In my last trip, I flew with my wife to Italy. We traveled part of Toscana, from Bologna to Florence. In Florence we hosted the Residence of the Pitti Family, which also gives the name of the Establishment itself and the Plaza. Say that the price is a little out of the common, but sometimes you have to allow some luxuries. As I know the price of the night stay is high, I must admit that the experience was worth it, because it is central and right at the entrance of the old area of "Firenze", a few meters from "Ponte Vecchio" or the Duomo de Florence. I stayed in the living room with a balcony just in front of the Piazza Pitti Art Gallery. The hotel is a very nice hotel with a great location, a great location, a great location, a great location, a great location, a great location, a great location, a great location, a great location, a great location, a great location, a great location, a great location, a great location, a great location, a great location, a great location, a great location, a great location, a great location, a great location, a great location, a great location, a great location, a great location, a great location, a great location, a great location, a great location, a great location, Every detail fascinates you. All you need to reach, especially for "they", which often mimic more their body. Only the base the bathroom shows the luxury of the occasion. The reception is in the same plant, and next to it, the room where you can hire a breakfast for €20 The hotel is a very good hotel for you, and you will be able to enjoy the most beautiful location. The hotel is very comfortable and very comfortable. Access to the historical centre without authorization, implies a more than likely fine of €96, so you have 2 options, one to leave it in a parking outside the centre, or access to leave it in a parking centre with a price of €28-30. The hotel has a service that is at the same price (€30), park it and bring it when you need, so it's worth hiring and forget it to move on walking or in public transport. The profile is certainly high, but stay in Pitti Palace is worth it.

If you want to choose a hotel close to the Old Bridge, the Uffizi Gallery, and the Lord's Square, this is a good choice. Should belong to the nature of family hotels, the front desk has seen three, of which the grandfather is very nice, after checking out, waiting for the car to order the coffee and finally exempt. The rest of the hotel is next to the old bridge, 10 meters to the right is the old bridge, and 10 meters to the left is the Uffizi Gallery, the location is excellent. The room hardware is quite normal, but very warm.

The breakfast is very rich. All the facilities in the room are free of charge. The water in the refrigerator is relatively small. The hotel is free. The location is great. It is right next to the bus station at the mall. There is a supermarket next to the hotel. It ’s very convenient. Too friendly "is that the shelf of hanging towels in the bathroom is too high. My feet are so strenuous enough to reach the Nordic feeling. It is really high. The body milk tastes good.

FABULOUS, FABULOUS!! We enjoyed a stunning and spacious suite! The rooms are absolutely GORGEOUS. The breakfasts are very special - beautiful presentation and delicious. Staying here enhanced our visit to Florence very much. The location is spectacular, right in the heart of Florence and the sites. And, as if it couldn't get better, let's talk about the staff. THEY ARE TREMENDOUS. They secured me an eye doctor appointment for an unexpected medical situation, scheduled museum and restaurant reservations, and displayed tremendous hospitality throughout our stay. Thank you to Paolo, Valentina, Tommaso, Leonardo, Samanta, and Nawal. We even had an opportunity to meet the owner - she was absolutely charming and deeply cares about her guests. (Although I noted February 2020 as our travel date because that is as far back as Trip Advisor will let me go, we actually traveled July of 2019.)

We had very mixed feelings about this hotel, so I wanted to list what we thought the pro's and con's were, since we had more cons than pros for a 4* hotel I though an 'average' score was fair, as we probably would not stay here again. Pro's: The location is unbeatable, we walked everywhere and everything is close by. The staff were all friendly. The room was very large with beautiful antique furniture throughout, the style of the hotel was very 'Florence' and attractive. It was clean. The tower was a nice touch with great views. Breakfast was okay, good coffee but no hot options. Cons: Bit of a pong on the ground floor and on entry of our room. The room was either freezing or boiling (not great heating system for winter stays), bed was really hard and pretty uncomfortable, plus two singles and not a double so lots of falling into the crack! The bathroom needs a good update; poor shower. No in-room tea/coffee options and no irons (I realise this is a Florence-wide thing but we were unwilling to pay a massive laundry fee just for one shirt ironing). We ran out of bottled water, as the room was never restocked through our 4 night stay, but the gentleman at the front desk gave us his own personal water bottles, which was very kind but he was a bit annoyed. Our room looked over a narrow alley, so the room was very dark and most nights men were in the alley talking and drinking in to the early hours keeping us awake - I realise it is a city centre location, but they were directly under our window for hours!! Plus, for a 4* hotel there were no 'little extras' we were hoping for (e.g no slippers, no robes). As mentioned, breakfast was ok but in a big cold room with no hot options, which in February would have been nice! I realise that for some of these items we could have asked/gone to front desk for help, but after two visits to the front desk we didn't want to spend our entire few days continuously asking for more things. Overall, it was a nice stay but we wouldn't stay here again; mainly because of the poor quality of sleep.

On arrival you think from the outside wow, what a beautiful hotel. We'll it's definitely not the case. We had an average stay and this hotel definitely doesn't deserve 5 stars at all. Yes on check-in the staff are vety welcoming and friendly but (an here we go). 1) very bare, the hotel feels cold definitely not a warm feel. 2) Restaurant closed, vety misleading as when we booked it was advised as open. 3) Continental Breakfast/breakfast, you'd find better in a service station 4) bar area, the bartender is friendly but slow.. Wow 5) Room (suite) very worn in fact both rooms we had felt worn. 6) no air conditioning, the rooms extremely hot, yes we had to open the windows but the noise from outside we terrible. 7) quite far from the city centre. Overall this is probably one of the worst hotels we've stayed in for many years and will definitely not be returning to it, I recommend the Westin, 4 seasons or Savoy. If not for my wife we would have checked out of the hotel our first night. As for the manager or whoever replies to these messages don't bother, we are extremely upset with the misleading info provided to us about this hotel.

We booked the appartment for a short stop at florence. It was cheap so we weren't expecting much. First task was to find the place. Even with the exact adress it was hard to find because no sign/... was located nearby. The entrance is an old and ugly door, where you have to call the owner first so that he can give you the code for the lock. You go upstairs a small, steep and narrow stairway. There an old lady welcomes you who barely speaks english or another foreign language but we managed to communicate. Everything looked old and worn, but okay.... The big issue was our room which was absolutely disgusting. The smallest problem were the furniture which were old and definitly need to be replaced, but with that the shortcomings just started. The walls showed a lot und partly huge water damages, dead insects had left bloody stains on the wall, the floor between bath and bedroom was damaged, so the door couldn't be closed, over the shower was a hose from the a.c. for the condensed water which dropped continuously and also begun to go moldy, the shower in general was untidy and germinal and there was generally mould all over the place - in almost every corner. The "highlight" was a approximatly 1,5 m² huge mould spot behind one of the cupboards. We described the problems to a customer support stuff of the portal where we booked. He contacted the owner but couldn't help us because the owner wasn't cooperative and just got angry. Of course we didn't get any compensation....

I have seen there are no recent reviews so will update you on our visit. First off this is NOT a hotel and they do not have any services at all. They don't advertise that so it is what is says a B&B. Our room way extremely small even for europe rooms. The bathroon was the size of a telephone booth. The drain did not work at all and within 2 minutes the pan was filled and overflowing into the bathroom. You can not use the shower bascially. The air conditioning works but sounds like there are coins bashing around in it and can't really be used at all. No way to sleep in the room with that noise.. its not just a little noise it rattling really loudly. The person that run the place is only there from 2-6pm. He was very nice and helpful. If you need anything after that you are on your own. He said call him and he can come back. But hardly feels right calling a guy to run over to bring extra towels. While the location is excellent..... without a fan or air conditioning the outside noise it unbearable. Loud parties and people have fun below until at least 4:00am. I think I was dosing here and there as I heard about 30 people signing happy birthday at 3:30am. I know we had the smallest room but had I been there a second night I would have checked out a day early. This again is not a hotel I would say its a dorm room with a view.

The only hotel with a balcony, 3 people, the environment is the same thing, there is a wife who eats grilled wings opposite the hotel is too good for 1 euro, her husband eats 8 children and eats 3, I I ate three, but I wanted to buy it, but I didn’t have time to go to the church. The price is mainly convenient. Besides, I want to say that if the church in Florence is not on the roof, look outside, otherwise If you queue up for 2 hours, you will regret it. I am the fast-track to book the ticket in advance, and visit the roof. Look at the church for 5 minutes. If I queue for 2 hours, I will definitely not do it.
