We stayed here 4 nights in December, and had 2 rooms. The staff were always friendly and helpful. The rooms were very spacious and comfortable, and were very clean. Our rooms overlooked the narrow street, that has essentially no traffic, except for an occasional taxi. The breakfast was pretty typical for Italian hotels; all the food was very fresh and... More

The service was what is expected of a small hotel like this one. The room... More

Friendly staff, good service, comfortable bed, impressive breakfast given its small size, located close to the train in the heart of the city. Not many English speaking tv channels but wifi worked well so used YouTube when necessary. Really good value tor the money. I would stay again.

We stayed three days at Hotel City which is ideally located within walking distance to the railway station and all the important historical sites and museums in Florence. The staff, particularly the receptionist, was very helpful toward orienting my wife and me to the treasures in the city and to great restaurants. The rooms in the hotel are very clean,... More

We stayed here 6 nights in September, and had 2 rooms. The staff at the desk were always friendly and helpful. The rooms were very spacious and comfortable, and were very clean. There are 2 sets of windows, both double-paned, and there's a screen so you can open the window for fresh air. Our rooms overlooked the narrow street, that... More

The staff were exceptionally helpful regards organising the Opera, good quality restaurants etc., The hotel is within easy walking distance of all the main sights and the railway station. The area it is in is not great at night but I just walked quickly past a... More

This hotel is ideally located, a short walk from the train station and a short walk from the main attractions. It is very convenient to the many bars and restaurants nearby. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel and rooms were spotless. Breakfast was very standard but sufficient to fill up for a days sightseeing. Bedrooms were well... More

Easy walk from train station and very close to the morning market and other attractions. Laundromat down the street; several great restaurants nearby too. Hotel looked rather old from street, but rooms were clean and well updated. Key had to be turned in before leaving hotel, which turned out to be common practice in the cities we stayed in (but...

We didn't book ahead in Firenze, just walked off the train and started looking for a hotel to stay in. After being told by numerous hotels that they were full as there was a large conference happening, we walked into the beautiful Hotel City. The proprietor said they were full, but he would phone his friend to see if they... More

Building itself if quite old and has lots of character which is in keeping with Florence itself. Staff were very nice and this hotel is good value for money. Would recommend... More
