Hotel Centro is located in the centre of Florence in a palazzo where Rafaello used to live. It is literally five minutes from the Duomo, and the Academia. The Uffizi Gallery is ten or so minutes away. For a visit to Florence it is perfectly located. The rooms are small, clean and functional with shutters that overlook narrow streets. There... More

First and foremost, it is hard to beat this hotel's location in Firenze at this price. Just a short walk away from the Duomo, it's pretty close to the city's centre. The room was basic but nice and clean, and everything you need for a stay in Florence, airconditioning included. The staff was nice and the breakfast was a typical... More

I was staying 2 nights at hotel Centro - Florence, It no far if you want to go to train station and the center. One thing I would like to share that with the reasonable price, the warmest welcome which will make you feeling comfortable. Although the bathroom is so small but the bed is large enough for 2 person.... More

The rooms are great for the price. The room, although basic, was very clean and fully stocked with everything that we needed including free wifi. The hotel is also centrally located within a short walk to all of the Florence landmarks, so it was very convenient in terms of our plans each day. But the main reason that I'm writing... More

This is a very bad option, just don't even reserve here. This is located in an apparment building and they lease some rooms, the service is the worst and the receptio guys are always drunked. Defitnley not a b&b and not a familiar hotel!....

I organised a stay here for my mums birthday celebrations in October, and we were both incredibly pleased with the Hotel. The weather was incredible - sunny and warm and more important - The location is unbeatable - walking distance from every sight you could possibly want to check out, the breakfast was excellent - croissants/cereals/yogurt - what more could...

We booked a room here months in advance, only to be told upon arrival that there had been a waterline break. They said "No problem!" We have a room for you at another hotel (See my review for the Hotel Veneto). After walking several blocks to the Veneto and seeing the tiny, cement box that they rehoused us in, we... More

Hotel Centro is a 2-star hotel which means you can't expect a lot! The service was ok, had the feeling that they don't what they are doing. Our room was basic, but it was so noisy we couldn't sleep at all. You can hear every noise from the street. Bathroom was ok, but very small. Breakfast was only dry white... More

The service is nice! The owners are very friendly but my experience here was very unpleasant! The walls are paper thin, it is extremely noisy, we heard our neighbors "being intimate" on more than one occasion. We got woken up by a girl screaming at about 2am from the room down the hall from us. You can hear conversations clearly... More

This is a very low budget hotel. Its a step up from a hostel. Some of the rooms share a bathroom. Luckily my wife and I had a bathroom in our room. Thanks to earplugs and the fact the pros outweighed the cons, it ended up being a nice stay. Cons: -Beds were uncomfotable. -Walls are super thin. You can... More
