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

Was very easy to find. Great restaurants along the road of the hotel as well as plenty of places to get Gelatos. Staff were inviting and efficient. Room was a good size and very good bathroom. We had a view of the Duomo which was a bonus. Easy to get to all the main sights. We loved Florence and thanks... More

The hotel is a 5 minute walk from the train station and within walking distance of all the monuments and sights. The place itself is deceptively large. The reception staff are very friendly and helpful. They provide you with a map when you check in with sights they recommend. I would suggest you did your own research though as that... More

Our room was on the small side but was very clean and comfortable. We had a great view of Il Duomo, pic attached. WiFi worked great and breakfast was fantastic. Located only one block from the train and only a short walk from many landmarks makes this an ideal place to stay. Thanks to the entire staff at Hotel Sempione... More

The hotel is located on a very busy street near the train station. We weren't too sure what to expect but it turned out to be great! The rooms were very nice and the location was excellent. The staff was very friendly and breakfast was good.
