Stayed here for five nights in early October. It is clearly an older hotel, but if we wanted a Holiday Inn we would have chosen one. The De Rose was clean; the room, bed, and bath were fine. The room opened onto a courtyard shared with another building where people actually lived and worked....interesting respite from being a tourist. The... More

While the location of this hotel is nice, the accommodations were not. We were originally booked at another hotel, but they had flooding so sent us here. It was hardly what you would expect from a 4 star hotel. Rude staff, dirty, no hot water in the shower, no way to control temp of the room, you have to return... More

Hotel is not the quality it claims. We had to argue to turn on the A/C. The management were grumpy and rude...and didn't wanted us to wait for the passport while they scan them. We almost thought that they were little shady and about to steal our passports. Rooms are tight and hallways were kept dark. Florence was a great... More

Whilst I appreciate that Italy's rating system is different from other Countries, I agree with some of the previous reviews, that this hotel is not worthy of a 4 star. We were greeted OK when we arrived and told immediately that there was a hotel tax that was expected, "in cash" at the end of the trip. We thought this... More

We booked a hotel a little our of the historical centre to save a bit of money. I must say we were very surprised with how close this hotel actually was. Within 5 minutes east you were really into the busy parts of Florence. 5 minutes west and you were into the park, which also has a public outdoor swimming... More

Facts: - Mosquitoes in lobby area - My A/C barely cooled my room and when I asked for help they did nothing to fix the problem since the A/C was blowing air - Breakfast extremely underwhelming, no eggs, no bacon, just croissants, salami, and cheese. - Toilet took forever to recuperate water - Cheap bed mattresses - this hotel needs...

We arrived at the hotel from the train station (10-15 minute walk) to check-in earlier than planned.The gentleman at reception (black hair and goatee) was very rude and abrupted and questioned why we were staying in Italy if we could only speak a litlle bit of italien. We were then told to put our luggage in the room next door... More

I travel often and this is by far the worst hotel I've ever stayed in. There is an EXTREMELY rude concierge and hotel is far from four stars. If you're looking for a hotel covered in black mold, dead bugs and raw sewage smells leaking through the vents then this is your place;) .. Honestly disgusting. Oh and I forgot... More

We took a taxi from the train station. Cost us E8.50. On foot 15 mins. Quiet road in diplomatic area. Older style hotel. Very welcoming reception (Daniella excellent). Room spacious and well furnished. Bed comfortable and bathroom very good. We were in a corner room 203, with two large windows. Aircon worked well. Breakfast was cold buffet style, and good.... More
