Imagine two new honeymooners, arriving in Florence for the very first time, and after a charming weekend in the romantic ties of Venice, pull up to the throws and dirty dull city street scene that defaces the Hotel Kursaal Ausonia. Scary, barred, and felt worse then a Motel 6. The room felt like a hostel. Dirty walls, and the bathroom... More

We booked this hotel through Jet 2 holidays and did not know quite what to expect. On first impressions the hotel looks a little bit miserable set on a very busy street with lots of traffic. Check in was very good and the room was clean and well appointed. The bathroom was clean, although the bathmat could've done with a... More

I know Florence is a crazy, busy touristy town, but this hotel claims to be an Eco-Hotel to possibly bring in responsible visitors. The ECO part is just an attempt to lower the air conditioning cost and laundry cost. A few recycle bins is all you really see. It's located on the third floor of a non de script building,... More

Location - Great, close to Firenze SM (the main train station) Service - friendly, helpful Bathroom - there was a smell, but was spacious Room - there was a dank wet smell, and we had to open the windows with the air-conditioner turned on, to let out the smell. It worked for a bit, and had to do it every... More

paola a, Owner at Hotel Kursaal Ausonia, responded to this review

Dear guest, I really wonder how you can say that the hotel has stolen you the money. You said that you had locked the room from the inside (and in your room there were 4 people sleeping, including you). Everything is possible BUT it seems rather strange that our night porter takes the risk of entering your room (locked from... More

Stayed here for 3 nights June 15-18th 2014. Location is very good, being close to the station and the city centre. First impressions are a little off- putting as the entrance is via a rather dingy looking staircase which was not helped by bags of rubbish on the landings. However once inside the hotel is clean and welcoming, rooms are... More

My husband, sister and two daughters travelled to Florence and stayed three days at hotel. The place is neat and comfortable. Ideal for bed and breakfast. Close to the historic places you can get everything walking. Staff is very kind and helpful, they helped us with museum tickets.

Hotel Kursaal is a short walk from the train station and in the heart of the main area. A few minutes from the outdoor and indoor market area. Best thing about the hotel is they offered a free 2 hour tour with Paola Angelini (tour guide). She was absolutely wonderful, her knowledge was excellent. Along with the factual she told... More

We stayed here for a night on our honeymoon on the way back to from Rome to Salzburg. The location near the train station and many sights is perfect. Florence is not as big, you can walk to all the major sights. Cabs are sometimes hard to get and also expensive because of the many one way streets and restricted... More

The hotel Infrastructure is old but the staff made the difference trying to accomodate as much as possible some bad situations. In 3 nigths staying we faced 1 night without hot water for bathing... I have to consider one very positive point about a courtesy provided by the hotel, 2 hours of a guided city tour covering the main points... More
