This was by far the best hotel we stayed at in Italy for comfort and convenience in great location to all the sights, as well as the train station (2 blocks). The front desk personnel were very professional, friendly and helpful (special thanks to Sara). And the lady in the breakfast room was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were... More

Hotel Sempione is located on via Nazionale, only a few minutes walk (5 at the most) from the SMN train station in Florence. We stayed there for three nights in September, and I absolutely loved it. It's location is just fantastic and it's surrounded by local shops, restaurants and is only a ten minute walk from the centre of Florence.... More

We stayed for 4 nights and it was wonderful. The hotel itself was very conveniently located, very close to train station and great eateries. I was shocked to read another contributor state that the staff were un helpful, I found the complete opposite, everyone went out of their way to help or give advice. The hotel also had a lovely...

Hotel Sempione is in a great location in Florence, just a few minutes walk to the train station, and to many attractions in the city. The reception staff went out of their way to be helpful. The room was spacious by European standards. The bathroom was very clean and big enough for two people to be in there at the... More

Stayed here for 3 nights during our trip to Italy. We had a pleasant experience for what we paid and expected. The hotel was very easy to find, located about 5 minutes from SMN train station. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Room was as expected, reasonable size and wifi and safe worked well (that's the important stuff). Breakfast was... More

At first glance, Hotel Sempione looks as if it is the answer to everything you are looking for in Florence. This is completely wrong. I 100% agree with other reviews that the pictures make the rooms and lobby look nicer than they actually are. The staff, besides Sarah, who was extremely helpful and pleasant is absolutely horrible. A middle aged... More

As the title says, I was slightly disappointed with this hotel. The pics on the website are deceptive. Perhaps we were given one of the worst rooms? Our room was a lot smaller than we were expecting (compared with the website pics). The bathroom door was slightly too large at the bottom and therefore we had to really push it... More

I am quite shocked, reading some of the negative recent reviews. I stayed at Hotel Sempione for a couple of nights in August and experienced no problem whatsoever. The single room was indeed small, but adequate. I liked that it had a full bed and not a twin. The windows faced the side street and not Via Nazionale, and even... More

First of all, we stayed there for only 2 nights and changed 3 rooms because the ceiling was linking! The hotel rooms are not as they look in the photos. The price was too high for the specific hotel and is not worth 3 stars! Plus, poor wifi and in one of the three rooms no wifi! Just to be... More

Do NOT let their photo's of topiary plants and elegant looking candle holders or any other interior picture fool you. This place is awful! They try and hide all the old and not working at all under this fake veneer! We were a family of 3 (daughter 18 years old) and booked for 3 nights, but we could barely make... More
