Just the one night stay, on a flying weekend visit to Florence. Five minutes walk from the train station, where the airport buses also arrive/depart. We had rooms on the third floor, there is a lift, which starts from the mezzanine, not the ground floor, but we didn't really use it. Our rooms were the most modern, and the beds... More

The hotel is situated 5 minute walk from to S.M. Novella railway station, so it is good for travelers who arrive/depart by train. How we understand there was old rooms and renovated rooms. we were not lucky and stayed at old room. It was clean but it really needed to be refreshed, especially bathroom. Another con was that room situated... More

You can walk to almost any actraction from here. We booked superior room which was spacefull. The staff was verz friendly, ecpecially on front... More

Located a block south of the Piazza di Santa Maria Novella and 2 blocks from the SMN train station, the Unicorno is within walking distance of most sites in the city. It is also a short walk to the Arno River. We stayed here for 6 nights and found the location to be perfect. There is a bus stop right... More

A city break needs a centrally located hotel, good value and clean. Unicorno ticks all those boxes. The staff were absolutely lovely and reception staff very helpful. The rooms were large and typically quirky of an old city building. Watch out for steps everywhere! As so little time is spent in the hotel this was all OK. Easy to walk... More

This hotel was in the perfect location for exploring Florence and super close to the train station. Everything we needed was in easy walking distance and we found plenty of great restaurants nearby. And even a laundromat. The breakfast was good and the staff was more than happy to call restaurants and make reservations for us. The room itself was... More

The hotel Unicorno is situated just off the Piazza Maria Santa Novella. This is a great location, centrally positioned in this beautiful city, just around the corner from this large piazza and quite close to the railway station. The hotel is quite old but well maintained and very clean with air conditioning. Only difficulty for some people could be the... More

We spent 2 nights at the hotel in september 2014 and had one of the "dated" rooms. The room was big enough and it had air conditioning and a minibar, but the bathroom was really really small, and there were quite a few hair strands in the shower when we arrived. On the bright side the hotel has a very... More
