I had to many hotels in Florences lately, some was nice but far from the center , some was near the center but low hospitality. This one is just perfect... I don't care how many stars they have, because the hotel is just at the best spot in town, 1 min from the market and duomo, the bars and restaurants.... More

Perfect location in Florence, walking distance to the train station. We stayed here during our honeymoon, and we were treated to a complimentary bottle of wine! Room was neat and clean, bathroom was small but standard size to what you would normally find in Italy. Overall, a great hotel!

My family and I holidayed in Florence and loved our stay at the Hotel Sempione, which was affordable and spotless. We were warmly welcomed by Nick on arrival and Sarah was also friendly. Owner and manager Serena was on hand and was also helpful with shopping tips and advice. We enjoyed a lovely, quiet time with delicious breakfasts served each... More

We had a very nice stay in this hotel. The location is great. We came by train from Rome and could walk to the hotel. We also could walk to the car rental office and of course to all of the attractions in the city. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was small but comfortable and quiet.

We stayed at the hotel for 1 night only before travelling elsewhere in Tuscany. The location is perfect as it is very close to the train station and a short (10 minute walk) to most of the attractions. The check in was easy and efficient and the room included everything you would need. I love the little heart key rings... More

The best hotel I have ever stayed! Excellent service, friendly stuff, perfect location. Walking distance to center, just 5 minutes walking. A lot of good shops and restaurants around. Also, they have 24/7 coffee or hot tea and croissant in lobby. It was so nice to come from cold weather and enjoy hot tea.... for information, cup of tea in... More

The hotel is in an ideal position for the many bars and restaurants and for sight seeing. It is on a noisy busy road which might not suit everyone. It was very clean but a bit dated. The breakfast wasn't up to much and in a very small room. The lady on reception was very helpful.

The room decoration is a little dated. If you could look beyond that, it is actually perfect. It is about a 5 mins walk to Stazione Santa Maria Novella station, 2 minutes walk to the Mercato central, 10 mins walk to Duomo, 15 mins walk to Uffizi etc. You may also find many eateries around the hotel.

Always wanted to go to florence, so this was a really good choice for a hotel due to its central location and it wasn't far to travel from the train station to it and from where the terravision bus drops you off from coming from either florence or pisa airport in our case. Due to being a central location it... More
