Comfortable, relatively clean (for Italy) and good value. You get what you pay for and the staff are quite friendly if you're polite- I recommend staying here if you want to save money and still be in a good location! Make sure you take the stairs, though- part of our group took the tiny lift and it got stuck for... More

The location of the hotel was very good. It was very near to city center and also near to touristic places and cafes.. The rooms are clean. But Restaurant part is poor.. We didn't spent so much time at the hotel but it Would be better if their restaurant was larger and richer.

Friends recommended this hotel, they always stay here: it's very popular and fillls up. A room in the back is what I asked for and got, so it was quiet. Rooms on the Via Faenza can be noisier. Perfectly comfortable, if a bit dark, but who needs a beautiful room in Florence, when you only sleep there? Breakfast was fine,... More

Nice good located hotel in the real centre of Florence. You will admire the city for USD 100 a night. All turist places of interest are 20-30 minutes maximum! Rex hotel is an ordinary one, there is nothing special. Moreover, there is no safe box at all (rooms and reception). However, I had no problems, no discomfort... Everything was good... More

Location was excellent. An easy walk to all the major sights. Plus some good tips on restaurants. Yes, we experienced the bad smelling carpets when we first arrived. They gave us a room on the 3rd floor and as soon as we walked in we almost gagged from the old, smokey carpets in the room. I went down to the... More

Location was right in the middle of all sights and very close to the station. Previous comments from others regarding the carpets are accurate, they should be replaced as they are grubby. However this is the only complaint I have. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the room itself was a good size. Breakfast was fine and altogether... More

Lifts unsafe and inadequate. Our room small & not v clean, bathroom horrible. Carpets, particularly in corridors, stained and dirty - also frayed and lifted in places. Breakfast facilities a joke for large number of people.

The staff was friendly and helpful both times we stayed at Hotel Rex. (2010 and 2012) The breakfast was very good. Room was a good size and clean. Close to the train station and within walking distance of major attractions. People at the front desk are willing to suggest a good place to eat that is not far away where... More

The Rex hotel wasd ideally located only a short walk from the station and really central to most of the must see locations in Florence. It was 2 minutes away from the street markets where a great deal was always available and within walking distance to evrything else. The rooms were not huge but were clean and comfortable. A small...
