Quite scaled-down hotel within walking distance of the train station--which was a plus as we were pretty tried from traveling. Truth in advertising, we were here 2 years ago in April but I can't imagine much has changed and I am just getting around to reviewing this trip. As other reviewers have noted, the rooms are unexpectedly large, certainly clean,... More

This hotel is in a fantastic location, close walking distance to the train station and to the town centre. There are restaurants and cafes all along the walk to the town centre so there is no shortage of places to eat or drink! We stayed here for 2 nights, and with 3 of us sharing a room I thought it...

I definitely would stay in Porta Faenza again: the rooms are spacious and clean, the staff is friendly and helpful, and the breakfast is good. Another plus of this hotel is that not only is close to the main major historic monuments, but it is two blocks of the Santa Maria Novella Train Station!

When my son (who joined me in Florence for a week) and I decided on this hotel I didn't realize it was about two doors down from the hotel I stayed in 4 years ago, so that was a pleasant surprise to have that feeling of familiarity. This was a step or two up from the other hotel since I... More

Just a wonderful place to stop, in the old part of Florence and along cobbled streets with lots happening. Breakfast was superb, catering for all cultures with Bacon and eggs, sweet pastries , fruits , cereals , juices, cold meats and lovely breads, the best thing about breakfast was the lovely smile and greeting we always received from Franca who...

We stayed 6 nights here, and I have no complaints to make at all. The hotel was affordable, clean, comfortable and an easy walk from the train station, and just a slightly longer walk to the Duomo / center of town. My mom was with me on this part of the trip, and she'd stayed in another hotel in the... More

We arrived and found it a quick walk from the train station. Our rooms were well appointed, clean and all we really needed.

Porta Faenza is unique in that it alternates between antiquity and contemporary. You enter an old 18th century building, walk through glass doors, greeted by a modern reception counter that continues to a bar and then you look up at the old stone-arched ceiling. On display in the lobby and on the staircase landings are antique furniture, apparatus and tools... More

This hotel is close to everything in Florence. The hotel is located in a quiet section of Via Faenza, the breakfast was adequate and the lobby was quaint.
