The room does look nice (on first sight) and the location is ok. However... - shower: You cannot take a basic shower: extra small (even for 1 small person), the shower head did not reach till me head, you need to be on your knees and on top of it: no warm water. - breakfast: the positive thing: there is...

Just spent two days before visiting Vatican. Good rooms and food was available. Easy access to many important places. Good to relax during business. Its location provides unique opportunity to attend to normal business whilst relaxing.

No exaggeration, this is the worst in my entire 44 years of traveling across Europe, Asia, the Middle East, North America and Australia. When i checked in on a Sunday, the person who was at the front desk must have been a 90 year old man who didn't speak a word of english and just kept telling me that i... More

Very good location close to the food market and at walking distance from major Florence attractions. The hotels was not the newest and the cleanest but acceptable, especially considering the price I paid. The restaurant across the street gave 10% discount for guests of the hotel, which was a nice. The “parking” the hotel “has” is actually several blocks away... More

The location of Hotel Basilea is a short 10-15 walk from the Santa Maria Novella train station to Via Nazionale to Via Guelfa near the Central Market. Check-in was at 2:00 pm. A request for a quiet room was ignored. We were given Room 215 facing busy Via Nazionale. There's a cafe bar on the corner that draws a noisy... More

If you want to feel Florence, this hotel is for you. Simple, cheap and clean, if not come to sleep. Close to the center, if you are not afraid to walk. Very good breakfast, but the climate control is not cold.

The hotel was within walking distance of the station which was good. I had booked the hotel, for three nights, two months before travelling. We were given a room on the 2nd floor but it was down a number of corridors and at the very end of the floor. The room was average but with the single beds pushed together... More

I booked this hotel on onhotels.com and got 2 nights for 2 in a double room for €68 total! The location is excellent for seeing the sights and we were able to easily walk to hotel from the train station. The room is a grand size(still here, checking out in the morning!) and it has wifi. It is a bit... More
