We traveled as a couple around Italy and stayed in this hotel for 2 nights. We were moving from Venice to Rome with a stop for 2 nights in Florence to see the town and Toscana region. We needed a hotel very close to the train station and close to the historical centre of the town. So, location is just... More

Very disappointed as they gave me their worst room, an overflow emergency room, which was a mystery as I had booked some time in advance. It wouldn't take much to improve this room. No curtains on the windows. No safe, No TV, musty smell in room, mattress very uncomfortable, phone, fridge and bedside light did not work. had to get... More

It's a mystery how Italian hotels get 3-star ratings. They certainly would not in England. Although the location was ideal for the train station and central Florence, the hotel has little to offer in the way of amenities and the rooms are Spartan to say the least. Very small and very cramped, with empty mini-bars which could not even be... More

Chosen for it's location the best thing I can say about this hotel is the bed was acceptable and the included breakfast was only just ok. The only 3-star part of this hotel is the foyer. I doubt whoever rated it went past the entrance. Cramped room with "en-suite" - we only used the bathroom for the toilet. Certainly could... More

The Main reason we booked at Hotel Ascot was its great location, few meters away from the Santa Maria Novella station. The distinct features of this hotel are the unpleasant smell right after you enter and the uncultured female receptionist (the male receptionists were friendly and helpful). We were fortunate because our room was at the second floor, misfortune for... More

Luckily we were booked into this hotel by a travel agent and were able to move. This hotel has got to b a health hazard, the smell is foul, the electrics are dodgy and the beds are broken. Do yourself a favour, take my word for it and don't bother looking for yourself. You will not want to stay here:-)

So far, I've only posted positive reviews on Tripadvisor, but this "establishment" deserves another kind of review. Having spent three nights at the Ascot with three friends, I am shocked to see that this "hotel" is still in business. I have travelled a lot in my lifetime and I can safely say that this is the worst place I have... More

TV didn't work. Reading light too dim to see book. Requested a twin room and one of the "twins" was a foldaway that almost dumped my son into the floor. Bathroom tiny and one of those with a drain in the floor like the whole room was the shower. The staff was pleasant enough and did manage to fix the... More

In the English translation of J.P. Sartre's "No Exit," perhaps the most famous line is that "Hell is other people." Staying at this hotel has forced me to think otherwise - that the absurdity of how terrible this hotel was/is makes it a living inferno. Let me start by saying any negative review on this site is absolutely true. For... More

When my friend and I walked into the hotel it was disgusting. There is currently mold growing on the wall next to the front desk and they had trouble finding the reservation that we made. Then when you get to the elevator is smells like sewage + the anus of a Florentine gypsy. It smelled like this throughout most of... More
