Definitely not worthy of a 4* rating - more like 3*. No slippers or bathrobes which you would expect in any 4*. Breakfast average and no fresh juice. Lifts very slow and on the verge of collapse! Good location but needs some improvement

This is a four star hotel near the Train/Bus station in Florence for those coming in to town from the airport or by train. Very convenient to the main tourist center of town, short walk to the museum, cathedrals and shopping. The hotel is both a business and tourist. It is not fancy but the rooms are clean, spacious and... More

Stayed at this hotel for 5 nights while at a conference in Florence. Great location - just steps from the train station and bus depot, so very convenient if you plan on taking day trips from Florence. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Nice, clean, comfortable room. Breakfast was good - lots of variety. My only criticism of this hotel... More

This is a city hotel so don't expect atmosphere. Florence has enough to overwhelm your senses! It was clean, a little cramped (city hotel remember) and beside the railway station so easy to get to and lots of tours leave from there. The breakfast was fine. The hotel shares facilities with a more upmarket one two doors down, you can... More

Strange hotel as it seems to be the cheap entrance to the Ambasciatori joined next door but shares facilities. TV didn't work very well so missed the football, we mentioned this to reception who added our room to the long list on her desk and it didn't improve. The room was pretty tight but the bathroom was massive and the... More

We just stayed here earlier this month (June 2014) and couldn't have been more pleased. The staff was friendly and went out of their way to make us comfortable. We were concerned about noise staying so close to the train station, but never heard a thing! Easy walking distance to everything we wanted to see and do. Very clean and... More

Four of us stayed at the Hotel Diplomat in June for 4 nights. We had previously stayed at the adjoining sister hotel Ambasciatori so we knew that they were all part of the same chain and so of a high standard. Although the lobby area was small there was plenty of information about what to do throughout your stay in... More
