We stayed here even though it wasn't close to the sites because we thought we'd get a better stay at a 4 star hotel VS. a 3 star close to the sites, and we don't mind walking. Unfortunately we did NOT enjoy our stay, it was 75 degrees outside but the hotel refused to turn on the A/C because it... More

Located on the river Arno, on the way coming from Rome and Michelangelo Square. There are very good connections to the center and the train station (there are many bus stations nearby). There are about 30 minutes walking to the center (Ponte Vecchio). Staff at reception was ok, but with a slightly superior attitude. Many groups, so often waiting time... More

A bit more upscale, elegant lobby, helpful staff, a little out of the center of town where most attractions are but easily walkable in about 30 min. The bathroom was nice, with a tub and shower. There is only one electric outlet- seemed to be common in Italy. Can have a power converter on request. There is a free breakfast... More

This hotel is nice but it is a bit of a walk to everything. Also the wall are very thin, you can hear everything. We first had a room on the 2nd floor near a stair case and had to move. The next room was on the 5th. It was better not being near the stair case but could still... More

We stayed at the Hotel Mediterraneo as part of a Trafalgar tour. Although the hotel is clean and reception is swift and quick to assist where needed, one tends to feel overwhelmed by the sheer volume of people staying at this hotel. Every time we arrived at the entrance, massive groups were either meeting in the lobby or checking in... More

My husband & I stayed here in mid-March while traveling with a group with Gate 1 Travel. We welcomed the larger and more modern room (#506) we were assigned. After just visiting Venice for several days, the space was very much appreciated! The lobby with its revolving entrance door was very spacious and the large chandelier was beautiful! Our room...

My college group stayed here for a week in March 2014. I was a bit skeptical after reading previous reviews, it is conference center so don't expect anything too fancy. Definitely get a room in the main building, not the south/west wing (smells smokey, older rooms). Walls are definitely paper thin. Our room had the BEST shower. We were a... More

Stayed at this hotel for a meeting in the conference center. The conference center is located in an adjacent building. There is a grand lobby and the bar area is huge. There are multiple elevators so find the one that is closer to your room. You can get espresso/cappuccino at the bar as well as drinks and beer. They also... More

Hotel was booked by tour group. Excellent location on the river Arno. The lobby is huge and the bar area is really nice. In fact, lots of our group spent quite a few fun times in this area. The rooms were quite nice. The showers are really big. The buffet for breakfast was quite tasty. To walk along the river... More

Stayed at the hotel for two nights (in the "newer" tower I was told) in February 2014 as a part of a tour group. Location is great, on the river Arno & walking distance from major sights in the heart of Florence. The restaurant directly behind the hotel (La Taverna) was reasonable, delicious & had a very authentic feel. The... More
