The Classic Hotel in Florence Italy is listed as a 3 star hotel but beware the differences in rating scales from one country to another. When compared to 3 star hotels in Austria (where I was two weeks previous to the current trip) the Classic is a two star at best. My discussions with others staying at other hotels in... More

Stayed here once and have such great memories of the street and the hotel. The rooms are very clean and pleasant. Beds comfortable and bathrooms reasonable for a older hotel. Charming staff. Totally let me run out of Italian before jumping in. Yes it is a full walk into town but many wonderful stops along the way made it fantastico.... More

I had a wonderful time staying at this lovely hotel in August 2013. The staff is so friendly, and they remember you. Travelling alone can easily make you feel invisible or insignificant, but the staff at the Classic Hotel made me feel so welcome, looked after even. Made me feel I was at home at their hotel. They must have... More

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
