Came here on a study abroad trip and had the WORST experience at this hotel. First room had NO heat and NO WiFi. This was extremely frustrating being students and not being able to contact other people in our group or family at home. We also had to sleep with jackets on because of the room being so cold. Switched... More

big modern hotel, after renovation is now better, rooms are very small, hotel is normally packed with tourist and business people, extremely noisy all day long nights included. Staff at the desk isn't very professional, no privacy and they share your information with anyone is around seen the confusion that reigns. For Florence is still a good value for money,... More

We stayed here for 2 nights on a tour group. Great location within walking distance to city's center, takes approx 25-30 min if you don't stop to window shop or eat. Tourist sites are within reach-Michel Angelo's David, Duomo, famous Uffizzi Museum and plenty of shops and eateries. Florence is known for their fine leather so we stopped by a... More

Large hotel on the Arno River a good 20 minute walk east of the Uffizi. Food is good and plentiful but NO public internet stations that worked! (and huffy staff when you ask for them to print your boarding pass!). This hotel hosts a lot of conferences (bridge tourney and business conf while we were there). IF you end up... More

This hotel was lovely and we thoroughly enjoyed our few days in Florence in part because of this hotel. I only wish that it were closer to the city center, but there are multiple bus stops near by with one only around the block. I would consider staying here in the future.

My child is staying at this hotel for a Study Abroad session. I am really surprised because I thought it was a four-star hotel but it is actually a motel. I found out her room is infested with bugs! The bugs were all over my child's things and in the bed! The front desk staff is snooty for no apparent... More

Dear Readers, We would like to answer to this review because it’s an impression of a person who didn’t stay in our hotel but she reviewed basing your response on what her son talk about. This guy was part of an american academic group, our guest for a long period, who shared his room with other 3 mates. We kind... More

Grand Hotel Mediterraneo was the best hotel my wife and I stayed in on our recent trip to Italy. It's a quick walk to the center of Florence and the Duomo area (also, for those who have complained about having to walk 15 minutes, it's Europe. You're going to have to walk a bit.) and all surrounding attractions. The longest... More

My friends and I used Priceline to bid for a 4 star hotel and this is what we got! Outside appearance is nice, inside not to shabby. Check in process, the worst possible customer service. Maybe because it was a holiday week, their eagerness to facilitate and be friendly was at a 1. We had to book two rooms because... More

The hotel is a 15 mins walk to the main downtown (Duomo etc). We enjoyed the walk along the water and the back streets. The hotel is clean, staff nothing special. Rooms overlooking the water are more expensive and larger. Rooms at the back are small but comfortable and have a view to the mountains. Its true this hotel is... More

Went to Florence in December 2014 with the JMU Marching Royal Dukes. Hotel was great, rooms kind of small and shower was really small. Hotel staff was very polite. Food was good. I would recommend this hotel.
