Location is the only good thing about this place. Poor service, overpriced, wifi signal weak and very noisy. Our room was next to reception and the street so constant noise from both sides. Florence has better places to offer for same prices....

Despite being a 1* we could not fault this hotel. It is very clean, tidy and in a great location. A less than 5 minute walk from the train station and 15 minutes from main attractions it is a great choice if you are on a budget. We fell in love with Florence and would definitely come back and we... More

I stayed at the Hotel Margaret for a week back in May of 2010 with some friends. We had a room with 3 beds and a private bath. This hotel is run by a friendly family who always greet you as you come and go. The young man who works the front desk, Graziano speaks English and is very nice.... More

Looking at the reviews can't believe we stayed in same place as those that give this hotel a good rating. Yes, it is close to the station and the sights but that is all. We were put in a front noisy room facing the street.The room was clean but the bedding and furniture are old like the owners. We had... More

If you're looking for reasonably priced accommodation close to the Florence train station, Hotel Margaret is a good choice. Not only is it just a 5 minute walk from the station, it's also right by the large Piazza Santa Maria Nouvella, which we found much nicer than similar hotels on busier streets in the neighborhood. The room was spotless. It... More

My partner and I stayed here for two nights. Florence is surprisingly small, but it was a convenient location because it was SO close to the train station and just on the outer ring of the old town where all the sights are. The staff was kind of lackluster but nice enough. The hotel and room were clean. We were... More

When booking, ask for apartments in Via della Scala 31 on 3rd floor. This is the next door to the hotel and it belongs to same owners. There are 2 connected double rooms with shared batheroom and little hall there - little flat with service for 4 people. It was very nice to stay there - no other tourists, no... More

we've stayed in the next door building with the private bathroom. This was actualy an old flat not a hotel room, which was a cute experience, all the windows were inside the courtyard, so it is very quite at night. The location is perfect for 2-3 days in Florence. IF you have more time to spent in the city and... More

The staff was very friendly and provided us each with a free map of florence on our arrival. It is cash only. The room was very clean and comfortable. There was a shower in the room, but the toilet was down the hallway. Overall it was great value for money, and near the train station, and we were able to... More
