Panavision had tod us the hotel was in the city center. Not true.Not less than 30 minutes walking or by bus to Duomo. Views from the fourth floor and up are nice, though first floors are surrounded by buildings. Pay per wifi, it disturbs a lot. Breakfast with cold dishes only, self service below average. Shower too small. And the... More

After reading the reviews on here before my visit, I have to admit I was expecting the worse from Hotel Meridiana but I really don't see why everyone is complaining about it so much. Me and my boyfriend really liked the hotel. The rooms were big enough for the both of us and yes, the bathrooms are not the biggest... More

Wow, the rooms were really small, the shower was very very small, I could barely wash my hair. If you want to go to historical places is like a 20-30 minute walk, same with the train station, 20-30 minute walk. There are a couple of discoteques or pubs nearby, but again, you have to walk. The breakfast was simple, nothing... More

We were very disappointed. First this hotel is very far away from EVERYTHING. It would take us 1/2 hour to get anywhere by bus. Internet was not free. The rooms were extremely small and needed to renovated. It was the "style" of the hotel because it was just run down and tired looking. Our room faced the front. During the... More

The size of the room were very small, not in the best location, had to walk a fair distance to get to sights. The bathroom and toilet were clean, very small and cramped room, no extra facilities like coffee or tea, very basic. Would classify this as a budget hotel.

This is a dated hotel. We booked a double occupancy room and had 3 twin beds. For example,the lamp was something you would see in 1940 (but not in a good way). We laughed about it , but This place needs a renovation. Immediately

I recently stayed at this hotel as part of a group. The Meridiana is a good three-star hotel located on the edge of Florence's centre, within about a 10-minuted walk to the Duomo. The hotel probably dates from the 1960s or 1970s and has had some renovation since. The rooms were comfortable and clean, the friendly staff helpful and the... More

Our room was quite large, including a double and single bed, 2 wardrobes, desk with chair and a separate seating area with table and chair perfect for relaxing. The style of drapes and bed coverings was typically European, clean and well kept if not luxe. Bath was shower over tub and quite functional. Internet performs flawlessly (if at a cost... More

A/C broken, asked to have it fixed. Was not fixed. Had to sleep with the window open. On a major street and very loud. First time to Florence and will probably never come to Venice again because of this stay.
