The shower caps were not replaced. The shower head had an issue and also there was no hot water . Above... More

We stayed here for two nights in August. We are on our honeymoon and had an excellent stay at porta faenza. It is so close to the train station which was very nice because we had heavy luggage and it was no problem carrying it there. 10 minute walk max. Not only is it close to the train, but it... More

We stayed here for one night in August. The hotel is well located for the railway station and not far from the Duomo - it's an easy walk. Our room was spacious and well appointed and, most importantly, clean. The breakfast was fine and the staff helpful. I would stay there again.

We recently stayed in Florence at Porta Faenza. What a great little hotel. The rooms were a decent size, and my family had two of them. Our only complaint was the showers were so tiny that it was hard to comfortably shower, even for me at 5'2". Our rooms were really clean. The location was great. Very close to the... More

Small room, but everything was clean and the hotel is well located for both the train station and centre of florence. Staff were helpful and the breakfast was fine but nothing special. For Florence, this seemed to be good value.

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
