Great service starting from the staff in the reception and ending with the staff that served us breakfast. The hotel staff was fast and effective in cleaning the room plus always asked us how we were doing - all that within a short period we were away taking breakfast. Location was superb. We were able to reach all tourist sites... More

The hotel is in a great location. Walking distance to all of the sights in Florence and the train station. On approaching the hotel we found it to be on a beautiful street, filled with high end labels for clothing if you're interested in shopping. We weren't here to shop, but it did make for a nice clean and quiet... More

The hotel is on the Fifth Ave ( in a good quieter way) of Florence. The staff is excellent. Sylvia bent over backwards to help us with directions, reservations... More

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.
