This was a neat, unique hotel. It didn't even really feel like a hotel with the antiques laying around at every corner. Like most Italian rooms, our Classic Double was pretty small, but adequate. It is Italy, you shouldn't be hanging out in your room the whole time anyways. The hotel was clean and the staff was friendly. The breakfast... More

Best part is that the hotel is 5 minutes walk from main train station, many tourist attractions and tour's starting points. The lobby and rooms are beautiful. But it appears to be on costlier side for the room size and facilities.

Loved our stay at the Porta Faenza Hotel. The staff, our room, our breakfast were all very pleasing. The hotel itself was really good but its appeal for us was the charming location. Close to all the major attractions, the Duomo, Uffizzi gallery, San Lorenzo market, train station, many shops and restaurants all within a 5 minute walk. In my... More

Hotel Porta Faenza on Via Faenza was perfect. Clean and quite the staff was courteous and friendly. Walking distance to the local historic monuments and museums. And minutes from the train station and wonderful restaurants and bars. I would definitely stay here again.

My wife and I just checked out of Porta Faenza today. It was the best hotel we have ever stayed at in all Europe (let alone Italy). It's not even a 5 minute walk from the train station but still very close to all the attractions. We may have won the room lottery but we got a room with a... More

As other recent reviewers have said, the hotel's location could hardly be better - only five minutes' walk from Santa Maria Novella station and situated in a quiet street, only ten minutes' walk away from the Duomo - turn right outside the hotel and keep on walking straight until you have to turn left on Via Dei Cerretani. The Palazzo... More

...this is a hidden gem. In a perfect location away from the hustle and bustle but only a 5 minute walk to the heart of the city and the magnificent Duomo. Located at the top end of Via Faenza (the quiet end), there’s a small wine shop next door, open till midnight, selling alcohol, water, pop and snacks which was... More

The hotel is just two blocks away from SMN train station, yet it is on a quiet street. The room was spacious---especially the bathroom: the largest we've had in Europe. The staff was helpful and accommodating. We go to Florence almost every year, and we will go back to this hotel.
