I don't know what people are sleeping on but we didn't get any sleep from our room. The beds were so hard they were like sleeping on concrete, the pillows where so bad I thought they got them from a consignment shop and the noise was so bad from the streets it wake the dead. Not worth the money or... More

This hotel is in an 18th century palace on a quiet street with a great romantic atmosphere. Our room was large, comfortable, and very quiet at night. The hotel is an easy walk to the sights in Florence and has secure off street parking in a garden. The price was very fair and included an excellent breakfast in a frescoed... More

We stayed in Hotel Villa Liana for 3 nights while we enjoyed 4 very relaxing days in Florence. The hotel was packed full of character (it used to be the British embassy building in its time) and was perfectly located 15 minutes walk from the centre (around Duomo etc). The added bonus was that it had parking which made life... More

The location is within 20 minutes, by foot, to most attractions. The rooms were of fair size and comfortable with a large washroom that was bright. The staff were quite helpfull but gave us conflicting information. There was no lift and the cielings were 14' high, so the 2nd floor rooms were actually 4 stories up the stairs. The WIFI... More

Was shown to room on the ground floor, it was spacious, large comfortable bed, Muriel on the ceiling. Walk in shower in the bathroom. Very high ceilings, as were... More

Stayed here for a week in Florence in early January 2015. My room was on the ground floor and was just a 'standard' room but it had a large double bed and ensuite. The wardrobe was big enough to put my suitcase in and hang some clothes. Breakfast was included in the price and was 'help yourself' - pastries and... More

1> Pleasantly surprised by the room size. 2> Good staff 3> Good wifi 4> Breakfast 5> Location is little away from SMH station. So you just need to get a bus or a taxi if you have luggage. Rest of the time, the city is small and that you can walk. the Academia is closeby.

From this hotel it's about a 20 minute walk to Florence cathedral. We had a huge room with 19th century murals on the ceiling, the guidebook said the hotel used to be the British Embassy. As it's on a busy street we found the traffic a little noisy but for the price we thought it was good value. The breakfasts... More

We stayed one night. Arriving early our room wasn't ready. The very nice gentleman stored our luggage for us and off to see the city. Upon arriving back he had already brought our bags to the room. The hotel is clean and has a real Italian charm to it.. You are within walking distance to the center of the city... More
