Recently stayed at the Room Mate Isabella Hotel in Florence. The staff there was very accommodating and pleasant to deal with. The hotel has a very good location walking distance to many of the great sights to see in Florence. The room size was small but adequate. Bed was very comfortable and if you want the TV had many stations... More

The location of this hotel makes it worth staying in on its own. Spent 7 days in this hotel and the only time we had to take public transport to get anywhere was to go to Rome! Ponte Vecchio is literally around the corner - as is the Duomo. Uffizi and Academia are within walking distance. Excellent bars and places... More

My husband and I had an excellent stay for three nights in the second half of May. We booked the hotel based on the TripAdvisor reviews and pricing that we thought was competitive for the area. We walked from the train station, but we definitely had trouble finding it. Some nice folks on the street helped us - it is... More

Extremely comfortable hotel. I have always been hesitant to stay at cool boutique hotels since a terrible incident a few years ago in Bucharest. But this place has changed my perceptions totally. Situated in a classic building, tastefully furnished, even the smell of the place has been engineered to be pleasant. Floral smells throughout the day (subtle and certainly not... More

Room Mate Isabella is in the heart of Florence and it is close to everywhere. We got off the train station and walked probably less than 10 mins. I really liked the staff. They were all very helpful and nice. Our room was clean and classic. We booked the smallest room there that night. It was pretty quiet and comfortable.... More

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights in July 2014 and were very pleasantly surprised after a not so good experience in Rome. It was a great experience from the start, with the courteous welcome and help with our bags and the helpful tips/directions/suggestions around the city. The room was huge, nice big windows in the bedroom and... More

Upon check-in our room was upgraded to their Junior suite, this was a lovely surprise was our trip was to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary (we hadn't told the staff this) so it made the stay extra special.

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
