We stayed for five nights at Room Mate Isabella in October 2013. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely return to Room Mate Isabella. Hotel: As many reviews state, you have to climb some stairs to get to the hotel's elevator. There is a bell at the front door, and you can easily ring the concierge to carry your bags... More

Right in the heart of everything. Extremely comfortable. Well appointed. Great breakfast with a courteous staff. If you want to be in a lovely place within blocks of all the attractions, this is it. My only negative was the water temperature in the shower - which fluctuated way too much for comfort - but other than that, it was a... More

Room Mate Isabella was the perfect hotel for our recent stay in Florence. The staff were very friendly and welcoming and it was in a great location, only a few minutes’ walk from the main tourist attractions. Also, it's just opposite a very good 'mozzarella bar', effectively an italian restaurant, which is very modern and does good food. Our room... More

We were looking for a hotel with a king-sized bed during our stay in Florence. The reviews of the hotel were great, and we booked. The hotel is an easy walk from the train station and to every place else. The location is central to all the tourist spots. The front desk was very helpful in recommending restaurants, and we...

Really lovely boutique hotel in an incredible location in the centre of Florence. Less than 5 mins to Piazza della repubblica and Ponte Vecchio. Room was a great size with a huge, comfortable bed. Staff incredibly friendly and very helpful, giving great advice on the sights of Florence. Breakfast was also great and on until 12 so you can enjoy... More

Room mate Isabella is an amazing hotel with an even more amazing staff. Prime location and close to everything in florence. The friendly staff, in particular Simona, helped us plan our stay, and when we decided to spend an extra day in florence she helped us book a room. Since the rooms at isabella were out of our budget for... More

This hotel is in the centre of Florence - imagine Rodeo drive in Hollywood. We could walk to everywhere with ease. Loved the location. The rooms were standard European sizes with a few a bit bigger. Ask for the rooms in the back which are much quieter as the main pedestrian street below can be very bustling. My husband especially... More

Situated properly in the center, it is a small yet very elegant hotel. The rooms are not big however delightful with their colorful furniture, wallpaper and frames that you feel you are in some English tea saloon. Although there is no lift from the ground floor, the luggage carrier is at one's disposal imminently, The staff is gorgeous:welcoming, multilingual and... More

Situated on high fashion lane, Via Tournabuoni, Room Mate Isabella offers comfort and convenience, while maintaining its historic charm. The interior helps you image what it may have been like when Victorian novelist George Eliot stayed there in the late 19th century. In addition to clean rooms and exceptional service, the hotel is a short stroll from the Santa Maria... More

Room very nice with elegant wall... More
