Its difficult to find much wrong with this hotel. It has clean, nice and good size rooms and bathroom. Staff was helpful. Checking in early was no problem when we arrived. The location was very quiet and close to all the interesting things in Florence and very easy to find from the railway/busstation. The breakfast was good, and the wifi... More

Tren istasyonuna çok yakın ancak biz arabayla gittiğimiz için çok yakınında ki kardeş otel otoparkını kullandık (25mt).Çift kişilik oda gayet büyük, banyo yarı kapalı ama temiz.Yatak kalitesi çok iyi denemez ama o kadar merkezi ki buna değer.Kahvaltı gayet normal (İtalya için). Duomo'ya 10 dk da yürüyerek gidebilirsiniz. Biz hiç araç kullanmadık.Personel çok yardımcı, önerdikleri restoranlar harika çıktı.Otopark için günlük 15... More

Cons: extra firm bed (but that seems to be the norm in Italian hotels), wi-fi could be a bit spotty (but it is free, and the connectivity problems seems to resolve in a short time) Pros: Everything else: location, staff, breakfast, quiet, huge bathroom, beautiful decor.

We stayed here for 3 nights. The location is perfect! Not too far from the train station and also close to centro. The rooms are maybe a little small but clean. The restroom in the room is very tiny. The bed isn't the most comfortable bed but it is bearable. The price for the room is very reasonable. I would... More

This hotel had a good location right near the train station. We took the train from Pisa airport and it was really easy to find the hotel from the central station.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The Hotel Porta Faenza is situated in Via Faenza - one of the earliest medieval streets in Florence - near Porta Faenza, a gate in the fifteenth-century city walls. It was created in 1997 through the restoration and conversion of Palazzo Pegna, the old residence of a family of merchants, whose original structure has been kept intact. Porta Faenza was part of the city walls and was situated at the end of what is up till now called Via Faenza. It has been so called not for being placed towards the town in Emilia, but from the name of the Nuns from Faenza, who had their convent in the neighbourhood once. Between 1534 and 1537 Porta Faenza was joined to the Fortezza da Basso without being demolished: by watching attentively you can still distinguish its squared profile in the central bastion towards the city or its arch from the inside of the fortress. The Hotel will make you savour the warm atmosphere of the old-time Florentine houses: the tile floor, the exposed beams, the old tools scattered everywhere, together with all the comforts will make it your ideal home in the old Florence. The Hotel Porta Faenza is centrally located, very close to the main railway station (Santa Maria Novella), to Palazzo dei Congressi (the Conference Centre) and to the Fortezza da Basso. The most interesting monuments and museums in Florence are within easy walking distance. For being situated in a pedestrian precinct, the Hotel is a quiet and pleasant place, the ideal point of departure for you to discover Florence and its artistic and cultural life. ... more   less
