The hotel is well situated but parking is a big problem and very expensive. If u come by car look for a better hotel. Our room is small and dirty with no mini bar. The hotel website promised a mini bar but no, they sent me to the made to put our food in kitchen fridge. Not recomended at all

I stayed at hotel Rex in November 2014. Front desk staff was very nice. The location was central to a bustling street, which I enjoyed. The room was microscopic, slightly bigger than the mattress. However the bathroom was surprisingly large by comparison. There was also a decent continental breakfast offered. with the basic Italian breakfast foods and coffee. I only... More

Great location, close to shops/restaurants and landmarks, but the rooms themselves do not look and well kept/clean/new as the photos on the website portray. The showers are ridiculously tiny (standard double room) - if you're bigger than average you'll struggle fitting, luckily it's just a shower curtain keeping the water in the "shower" from the sink/toilet... Also the tv is... More

I just stayed here for almost 2 weeks. Adrian who is the young man who works the front desk is so friendly and helpful. And I enjoyed all the staff. This is not a fancy place but for the price it's awesome. The location is 2 short blocks from Santa Maria del Fiore. It is in the big Lorenzo Plaza... More

Very centrally located for shopping and local market. It is not fancy but very basic, and what you need for a night . Very helpful well articulated and friendly receptionist gentlemen. A place to sleep at and have a basic breakfast. Attractive priced and good value for money. Carpark just around the corner.

The location was great! The room was what we expect from a european room, same with the breakfast. Wifi was horrible, also what we usually expect when traveling. The staff was nice, except do not interrupt the older gentleman that works there WHILE he is watching the news. Other than that, it was a decent place to stay

This hotel is located right in the heart of Florence within a short walking distance of major attractions and the rail station. The rooms are of average size but everything is dated, the place was averagely clean but not spotless. The breakfast is the standard fare for budget hotels in Italy with the usual cheese, bread, rolls, jam etc. We... More

This hotel was located in a central location for what we were looking for. Only a 7 minute or so walk from the train station and about the same to the Duomo. Looks like a Wes Anderson film inside. We had a room that fit three people and it was perfect.

A traditional, rather old hotel in a fabulous location right in the middle of Firenze. Location is the big asset of this quaint hotel. The space and food are average but sufficient considering the privilège of sleeping next door to medieval San Lorenzo! Would return there with no hesitation.
