We loved the location of this property - five minutes to the train station and within walking distance of everything. The street itself was quaint with lots of shops, restaurants, and an Irish Pub! The hotel staff were warm and welcoming and the breakfast was among the best I've had in Europe. Although the room was spacious, it was a... More

Chose this hotel on it's location to both the station and the city which proved to be a good move. On arrival the staff made everything so easy from checking in to details about Florence. The room, 205, was large comfortable and very quiet on an evening, will confess that the bathroom was a little small but was all you... More

Stayed on the 2nd floor. Room size was pretty impressive for Europe, particularly Florence. Pros: The location was fantastic. Like previously mentioned proximity to the train station, the markets, various shopping, and restaurants was amazing. We walked everywhere, no need for other more expensive transportation options. Nice quiet area at night. The room was nice and cold. Lots of space.... More

The hotel is well situated - an easy walk from the train station and into the centre of the city. The staff were friendly and our room was clean and spacious. Breakfast was very good. Great value for money.

It is so funny that when I had been in Florence in college we had lived in a pensione on Via Faenza and now after 39 years I was back. Looked up this hotel on Trip Advisor as it was conveniently located. Once I was there I realized I had stayed down the street and knew the area well. The... More

Walking distance from SMN station. McDonalds, Berger King, other restaurants nearby. Good, clean room. Excellent breakfast. Florence being a small city - attractions are mostly walkable. Bathroom was small but that was not a big issue. Helpful staff.

Centrally located in Florence ( Firenze ) Italy 2 blocks from the train station, 10 minute walk to Duomo, 15 minutes to Santa Croce, and 25 minutes across the Arno river to Pitti Palace. This hotel is great when traveling to other cities using the trains. Little markets and bakeries along Via Faenza which takes you straight to all the... More

This hotel is located a walking distance from the station in a quitet street. The room we got was fantastic. It made us think of a palazza. The roof was very special decorated as it was. The bathroom was good. We have never had a bathroom with both a shower and a bathtube. The breakfast was also good. The only... More

Excellent situation close to cafes, restaurants, railway station and tourist attractions. One... More

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
