Great hotel close to the station and easy to find. The staff are very helpful and welcoming. The décor and furnishings were tasteful and traditional and our room was clean and comfortable. The hotel is located in a street close to the historic centre but is at the quiet end of the street which enables you to get away from... More

Stayed here whilst attending a conference at the Palazzo dei Congressi, which it is perfectly located for. Great little hotel, with very friendly staff. I travelled alone but had a double and a single room, which faced a coutyard and was super quiet. You do have to walk up a flight of stairs, so beware if like me you don't... More

We decided to return to this hotel, after 9 years, since we had found it to be a great place to stay, even though, it is in a slightly out of the way location. Since our last stay, the hotel had changed owners, but the overall ambience hadn't changed that much; which was a good thing for us. It was... More

Great little hotel, spacious rooms, very clean, great shower, and welcoming staff. Need to improve breakfast. Good location walking distance to all attractions and one block away from train station Santa Maria Di Novella. Great value for the price

ok for short stay, better value properties can be found in the area. Owner seem to be trying hard to cut costs. Pros: location, very friendly helpful staff, quiet section of the street, DB-room cosy, clean and relatively spacious. Cons: poor quality breakfast items, bathroom condiments, spartan in-room antique furniture good for display but not too functional.

Only stayed here the one night - a dramatic change from the noise of Milan. The staff helped with our suit cases when arriving and when we left. We loved the ability to keep windows open without any noise from outside - oh, yes there was - the cooing pigeons on the outside roof. Lovely!! Nice basic breakfast in the... More

Right from the time I walked in (after walking about 200 mts. from Firenze SMN station) things were nice and I was very much at ease. The room was nice, even though in this specific case it was not en-suite. But the warmth and helpfulness of Francesca, Omar and Eduardo really made my 3nights stay a eally pleasant experience. Great... More

This hotel is very well located within close proximity to the Florence train station and about 10 minutes walk from the Duomo and within walking distance of most of Florence's attractions. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms are reasonable size. The breakfast is a typical Italian breakfast with a choice of cornettos, cheeses, ham and yogurt with... More

You can't go wrong. If staying in a clean, friendly and convenient hotel with a wonderful Tuscan style of architecture accessorized with tasteful artwork; then you've found it at Mario's Hotel. A family run business with a back home style friendliness is what to expect from the minute you come through the reception door.
