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

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.

Let me start with location, it is only 5 minutes walk from Santa Maria Novella Train Station and 15 minutes walk to The Duomo. Easily find convenience stores, restaurants, self-service laundry, markets in the neighborhood. Staffs are helpful and friendly. Free coffee and tea and croissant in the lobby. Room is small, yes, but clean, and we got room with... More

Short stroll from train station, easy walk to attractions and restaurants. Room size smallish but very comfortable -spacious bathroom. Breakfast more than adequate. Reception staff eager to assist. Was a treat to have a lift to get to 3rd floor. Wifi was free and worked well. Nice touch of offering coffee and cake in reception area after a days touring.

Stayed here one night and it perfectly met our needs. The convenience to train station and all the Florence sights is it's best selling point. The staff was friendly, rooms were clean and adequate. Breakfast was ok. Our only issue was street noise at 2am but since Italy won its first game in the World Cup that night I can't... More

The room is not very clean. I can find mosquito at room and washroom. Toilet paper stand is not fixed so that paper always slip down to floor. The room photo of website is better than the true picture.
