We found the location a little too far, would have liked to come back to change and then go for dinner. If we were tired and it got late there is no bus past 8:30 pm, so we spent too much on taxis. The hotel is just ok, the cleaning crew had all the laundry spread out outside the rooms... More

After spending hours trying to find a decent place in Florence that had parking I chose Hotel Ariele primarily because we were running out of time but also because I didn't want to spend €500-€700 per night. The location was great. Near the various consulates, the building is attractive and sits on wide streets. The day manager was a bit... More

we stayed here for 2 nights. The map assured us it was a five minute walk from the station...we managed to get lost and found ourselves in a very intimidating area of the city which as it turned out was the right area! the hotel was beautiful and the furnishing and decor was what we would've expected for Florence.

Stayed 3 nights in September. I booked a triple single bed room (all that was available) for a great rate in comparison to area. Was pleased with room which was HUGE. Two of the beds were together to create a large double or queen which was very comfortable and unnoticeable that they were two beds. Location was great..20 minute walk... More

This is hotel like museum. All furniture, fittings and other in the hotel from the 50-70 years of the 19th century. This has its romanticism, but for me it is still a hotel, not a museum. Most troubled was the air with a touch of antiquity, dampness and oldness. I liked the special chic of this hotel, but for a... More

Very helpful personnel. Clean, quiet and located near the US consulate. Only 10 minutes walk from the center. Possibilty for car parking. The breakfast are quite OK and they serve good expresso macchiato. It is an old hotel but well maintained.
