Small friendly hotel near the Boboli gardens. Rooms were fine (with air conditioning, hooray!), each with a nice individual character (I was in the attic; a half-dozen of my colleagues were distributed around the lower two floors), and all quite comfortable -- nice furniture and beds, big windows, good size overall. Note that some rooms had showers and some had... More

My wife and I stayed here for two nights during our honeymoon in April of 2011. We loved this place. It has such history and charm. It was a great place to get outside of the city of Florence but yet you are so close to everything at the same time. You can walk to everything from here. The service... More

This small hotel is not in the center, rather out of the way, towards the Boboli gardens, on the side of an ascending road towards the small village Arcetri, but I liked the area and there are nice walks to have around there. The room I got was right under the roof and had some nice old furniture. The bed... More

A lovely backyard full of trees, fragrant flowers and friendly service make it more of a home-away-from-home and less of a hotel. Room was spacious and full of character. Lovely coffee at reception (payment reqd). Location very close to Porta Romano, but of a avenue full of large trees is excellent, but being on a busy street means that some... More

We spent two nights in this nice hotel, which is located just three minutes walk from Porta Romana. The room was no more than OK, but it was very clean. The continental breakfast was decent. Above al, the service by Benedetta was superb. She was very kind and welcoming and helpful. For such hospitality, we will certainly be glad to... More

If you want to be in the middle of everything, this hotel is not for you. However, if you want quiet and peaceful place to retire to at the end of the day, this is a lovely choice. In order to get to the center of town, you must walk down to the Porta Romana and take a bus. It's... More

The hotel is small and very quiet as the title says. We have been assigned two adjacent rooms on the top floor 206-207 and they were terribly dusty. The receptionist quickly changed our room to ground floor and from there on everything was good. The hotel is within walking distance to the center very close to la porta romana and... More

We and our daughters stayed in the family room on July 6 and 7. Nice Hotel in Florence with free parking. Close enough to the historical sites, and far away from all the tourists commotion. Located in a nice residential area close to the area overlooking the Arno River, Boboli Gardens and Palazzo Piti. Sam, the front desk clerk was... More

We stayed a night with a tour group where parking was essential. It was great from this point of view but room wise it was very small, old, toilet in shower scenario, shower curtain that attacks. It was the worst breakfast we had on our trip, ended up just having the coffee machine, nothing else really to eat, my husband... More

I was pleasantly surprised to find the Classic Hotel offered free, secure gated parking right across from the Boboli Gardens, just outside the Romano Gate--about a 15 minute walk to the Ponte Vecchio and into the heart of centro Firenze! The Hotel itself could use some updating as it was "50s decor" in an 1800 building, but the staff and... More
