Just five minutes walk from the Pitti Palace and the Ponte Vecchio, this is a great place to stay, full of character and charm, and with very helpful and knowleldgeable staff. Don't be put off by the descriptions of the entrance. Once you get upstairs, you will be as blown away as we were. You find yourself, first of all,... More

Super helpful, professional and friendly staff. Clean room with a clean, if tiny, bathroom. I work in the city center and live 30 minutes away, so this was perfect for a place to stay after a weeknight party. It was like a mini-vacation.

We were booked into this lovely little hotel by my daughter as a surprise, so we had no idea what to expect. First impressions are not that great as you enter through some very imposing wooden doors and ascend a large stone staricase. On entering the reception, it gets a lot more homely and cheerful. The staff are delightful and... More

It's kind of sad to have to write this, I recognise the hotel Is in the older part of Florence but I really was disappointed. As we all know first impressions count, they really ought to smarten up the entrance ie the bit from walking through the doors off the street to the reception, it eas dirty, dusty and there... More

If you are looking for good value, wide comfy and clean rooms with original antique furniture and helpful and kind staff look no further. The hotel also has a nice garden open to the public. No elevator though, but a wide ancient looking marble stair which adds another original taste to the whole. Lovely.

I just spent 5 nights at Annalena, and I thought it was exrtaordinary. Yes, there are the steps. Yes, the entry has a somewhat haunted feel, and a scent that, not at all unpleasant, is one of age and history. The hotel itself is utterly charming- filled with art and antiques. Anyone who likes their hotels "rennovated" should stay at... More

We were on a 10 day tour of Italy. Florence was our second stop and at the Hotel Annalena was by far our favourite hotel. We loved the hotel’s old world feel and when we read the history on the hotel we appreciated it even more. The front desk clerks were friendly and helpful especially Hector. He went above and...

This was my first time in Florence and we enjoyed our stay at the AnnaLena. The location was great as it was a few minutes from the main tourist areas, but in a quiet residential area with a nearby laundromat. The hotel is charming with a feel of old world elegance. Sure it could use an update, but couldn't we... More

Only a ten minute walk from 'the action', yet quiet and peaceful at night. Safe walking in all directions. Extraordinarily helpful people. As other reviewers point out, the décor has seen better days. True. Yet my wife and I found everything clean and in good condition. If you want fancy, you can pay more elsewhere. In fact, we had planned... More

This hotel has the all the potential of being something extraordinary, but sadly it’s just poor with renovations long overdue. The pension is located in an ancient historical building just a short walk from all the main sights and attractions. The building is magnificent, but sadly the interior and decorations doesn’t match the exterior (or the surroundings) What the owners... More
