I found this property to be satisfactory in every way. From the staff, to the breakfast, and the rooms. For the value, it is above average for a 3 star status, and the location is superb. During the day you are on the doorstep of all museums. The train and bus station is very near for day trips to Siena,... More

I have used Hotel Rosso 23, many times over the years and recommend it highly based on it's excellent position and price points. It is one of the best options in Florence. I have always found the rooms clean and comfortable, the staff impeccable, breakfast lovely and peace and quiet priceless for a good sleep.

Only 3 star hotel we stayed in during our trip and it reminded us why we should put more money towards our accommodation! The smell just from walking through the hotel was disgusting. It smelt murky and lingered around the entire hotel, except for the actual rooms. Hotel is incredibly small and difficult to fit our bags in with us.... More

The great location meant we could walk directly from the train station to the hotel in 10 minutes. Also very close to Duomo, markets, Ponte Vecchio and major galleries. The breakfast had plenty of variety. We had a room on the fourth floor overlooking lovely terracotta tiles, it was overheated making it difficult to sleep comfortable.

Stayed 4 nights here in Nov and I really must say that the location is superb. You can walk to the train station and to most major attractions. The breakfast was decent and the room was alright, just a little dark. The only qualm about the room was the noise. Think the sound-proofing needs to be improved. We woke up... More

The hotel is located in a lovely square within 5 min from train station. The room was a good size with twin beds. Adequate bathroom. Reception staff very helpful. Needed to do on- line check in on our last day and were advised to use facilities at their sister hotel where they have a computer and the receptionist advised us... More

I WILL NOT recommend this hotel to anyone. The cleanliness was barely acceptable. The shower area was dirty and over-flooded slightly whenever we took a shower due to the design. The room was very dark and lighted up by two bedside lamps only. The brightest place was actually the toilet! The reception on duty when I checked in was rather... More

I stayed for 9 nights on business. I stayed in what I assume is a twin room / double room - the beds were pushed together to one double bed. Bedroom was spacious with room for a huge bed, a table, a mini bar a closet and a safe. The bathroom is kind of small, the shower is about 60... More

My wife and I stayed 3 nights with Rosso 23 in August 2013. The hotel was lovely a little dark, however I think that was more the charm the hotel wanted to create. We booked a basic room and that's what we got, can't complain about that, you get what you pay for. In terms of location it was great... More
