We spent five nights in Florence, at Hotel Room Mate Isabella. A very nice boutique hotel located in the high end shopping district of Florence. I believe the hotel has 26 rooms. We were located on the top floor and had a view of Florence. The room was very spacious which was surprising as most hotels we stayed in Italy... More

I'm currently travelling solo around Italy for two weeks and stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. The room was clean with great decor. The room itself was air conditioned and the bathroom was spotless. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful with suggestions and tour maps. I would recommend this place to all solo travellers.

We loved the hotel. It's in a great location; in the exclusive shopping area, while across the street from Palazzo Strozzi, a 15th c. palace currently used for international exhibitions, which makes it convenient to explain location to taxicabs. We only used the taxicab to get to and from the train station. The location is perfect in that it's a... More

We arrived at the hotel for a 4 night stay and we were extremely happy with it. It is in a great location, close to shopping (it is located in between 2 Gucci stores) and a lot of tourist sights, but it is also a quick walk to the train station (SMN) as well. So if you are planning on... More

The hotel is in a very good location close to shopping and all the major tourist spots in old florence. The hotel is clean and the staff are friendly and helpful. The room we stayed in was so small we barely fit in it with our luggage. Too pricey for the room size in my opinion. I would shop around... More

As others have reported, the front desk staff is top notch, very friendly and helpful. We stayed in Room 40, described as a suite. It is a large, light and lovely bedroom with a nice bathroom with a tub/shower combination. Excellent air conditioning, although it wasn't that warm outside. Please be aware that room 40 is up a flight of... More

A great location within easy walking distance of all of the main sites in Florence and less than 10 minutes walk from the main train station (SMN). It is also located on Florence's premier shopping street with the likes of Prada,Gucci and the rest of the posy designer shops. Plenty of bars and restaurants also within a few minutes stroll....
