The shower was unsatisfying, and the towels were poor quality. But the breakfast was fine, service was good, and the price was right. Good location too, in the piazza indenpendenza. It is a very short walk to nearly major sight.

I spent 10 nights here during Christmas time. The management upgraded to a double my rom for free(without asking). The receptionist led me into the room carrying my luggage.

The description of the hotel is misleading, for example the bar and TV room quoted as: " Hotel Malaspina offers 24 hour reception, TV room and lobby are very pleasant, ideal situations for relaxing or socializing over a cup of coffee or glass of Tuscan wine served by the bar reserved for guests and open from 8 in the morning...

The location is excellent, an easy 10 minute walk from the Santa Maria Novella train station with many restaurants, cafes and markets along the way. Also, easily walkable to major attractions in the historic section of Florence. The hotel is well maintained and clean. The room has adequate furnishings and we were provided with more than enough generous sized towels.... More

Our stay dates where the 3rd week of October 2014. Location is probably the first and best thing about this Hotel. We walked everywhere we wanted to see within 10 or 15 minutes. With that being said the price was good, bathroom in the room was good, the bed was two small beds pushed together, so ok, the breakfast selection... More

Hotel Malaspina is an easy 15 min. walk from the train station, yet amazingly only a 15 min. stroll from the Academia, Market Centrale, the Duomo, and centrally located by some great restaurants as well. We loved being able to walk back to "freshen up" between adventures throughout the day without having to worry about taking a taxi or public... More

First time in Florence and found this hotel to be ideal! Less than 10 minutes walk from the station. Lovely park and no traffic in front. Easy access to everything. Helpful staff. Perfectly acceptable breakfast.

We stayed at Malaspina for 5 nights visiting Florence in September. In our opinion, 5 nights was way too long!! although it is a beautiful city, it is spoiled by heaving masses of tourists (ourselves included) cars, taxis, buses, bikes, scooters and trucks which are all allowed to drive through the city. The hotel is situated next to a piazza... More

We have stayed at hotels on Via National but more closer to the market, with the increase in prices we looked around for an alternative and found this hotel which we booked for 6 days. My main moan about Italy is currently the city tax which was not applicable on my last stay but has been introduced in 2011, it... More
