This is a very nice hotel with a great location in Florence. It was a 10Euro cab ride from the train station. It was clean and comfortable with kind and informative staff. Walking distance to shopping and great restaurants. We enjoyed Za-Za trattoria that they had recommended, so much we went 2 nights. Great breakfast included.

Comfortable. Staffs were kind. 1 km away from Duomo and near Academia Gallery. We spent 3 nights here and felt secure. Room was clean but the space is small. I think the Hotel is cost-efficient. We really enjoyed our stay here.

We enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Rapallo very much because the Hotel was ideally suited for our arrival in Florence by train, the service provided and the presentation of the Hotel is excellent. The room provided for our family of three provided all our needs. I organised our booking based on past reviews and was not disappointed. I actually... More

Stayed here for one night in January. I needed something close to the train station so it was a good location. Very good breakfast and the staff was excellent. They all went out of their way to make sure they addressed all your cares and needs. Very attentive ... really exceptional. They allowed me to keep my luggage in the... More

Hotel Rapallo was my home for 2 weeks while in Florence over Christmas/New Years. Everything about the place lived up to the online pictures and reviews. The hotel is beautifully contemporary and immaculate. Great breakfast buffet in the morning and snacks ("high tea") in the afternoon. But the best thing was the staff. Everyone was so friendly, pleasant and helpful,... More

The staff was very nice and gave us lots of wise advices about the places to visit in the city and the restaurants. The hotel is very well located : not far from the center but not inside the center which is a good point as the center can be noisy. Good breakfast, with different kind of choices. Coffee and...

Nice room, just 15 minutes walk from S.M.Novella train station. The staff was very friendly and polite! The room was not very big, but modern and clean! The breakfast could be a bit richer! I suggest it!

Stayed here for two nights in December. We needed something close to the station so it was ideal for that, bit of a walk to the sights nearer the river but wasn't really a massive issue. Very good breakfast and the room was big enough. However the air con unit in our room was very noisy- got used to it... More

Good place to stay when you visit florence as it is close to the main train station. Also, the old market(Mercato) is closeby and walkable from this hotel. The staff are quite courteous and helpful with any queries. The room was quite spacious with all major amenities. Comfy bed with a spacious cupboard and a large lavish bathroom. We stayed... More

Really tough review this one, and ideally I would give 3.5 but that is not possible. Hotel staff were good, hotel is lovely and modern, and the free breakfast is a great option before a busy day. Our shower flooded our room, and while it was cleaned up quickly there was no apology for the inconvenience or the fact that... More
