Me and my girlfriend just got back from a 3-night stay at this hotel. All I can say is that this hotel has reached all of my expectations considering the small amount of money I paid. I really recommend this hotel for all of those who are travelling on a certain amount of budget as it is really cheap. The... More

What an amazing hotel! I have to admit when we first turned up I thought this was going to be a very average hotel, but Wow! It was a really well run small hotel. We had 3 rooms, each of them different and beautiful. Travelling from New Zealand the rooms felt very authentic Italian with the blue tiled bathrooms and... More

2/5 grading just for the very kind , friendly and helpful staff . They make their best to please you. Additionally, decent breakfast. Tiny and smelly room , small bathroom ..old buliding . We could not joy the time spending in the room because of the whole atmosphere and smell that were quite annoying. Not satisfying wifi .

Our first time to Italy (Rome, Florence & Milan) trip was really memorable. The main part of the trip was to go to Milan World Expo, but we squeeze in visiting friends in Rome & shopping in Florence. The hotel is strategically located just 5 minutes walk from the train station. A lot of restaurants along the street and nearby... More

We stayed at the Sempione for three nights while exploring Florence. The breakfast was good and the young lady in the breakfast room was very attentive. There was some mix up with the reservation by one of our party and the receptionist did everything she could to help us. I would stay here again.

This was my second stay at the Sempione. Renovation works were carried out since then, correcting some problems. But the hotel keeps the same charm I found on the first stay. Small bedroom, but very cozy and clean. Good breakfast. Staff very friendly and helpful, ensuring a warm welcome throughout the stay. I recommend this hotel to where I will... More

Myself and two other couples stayed in Hotel Sempione for three nights early September 2015 and it was the best hotel in terms of comfort, enjoyment, location and staff that we stayed in throughout Europe.
