Up three flights of stairs in an older building on Via del Sole, this recently renovated hotel has an elevator(!), a very helpful and friendly staff, spotless rooms, excellently functioning bathrooms, and air conditioning that worked perfectly throughout the five days we were in Florence during a heatwave in August 2013. So what the elevator's tiny, there's no parking or... More

I was very happy staying here and to prove it I decided to stay there again next year. It was central, clean, quiet, good value and with friendly helpful staff. What more can I say; this hotel suited me down to the ground and I thoroughly enjoyed my stay.

This hotel served our purposes and the staff was helpful and willing to answer questions. The units are on the 3rd and a half floor giving rise to thoughts of Harry Potter. The lift is extremely small and not for those with a fear of tight places. Cleanliness was the only thing we had an issue with in comparison with... More

The room was very small with only a tiny window for natural light. The light flickered (which they fixed), the shower basin was blocked (which they didn't). There is no reception overnight, so don't lose your keys and pray they work (doesn't everything work perfectly in Italy?) There is no breakfast room, no parking, no bar/minibar, the air conditioning doesn't... More

We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights earlier this month and what a great find it was! We had booked double room room with ensuite and it was perfect, there was just enough space for our two cases and us. The bed was a tad on the firm side for my liking but after a long day of sightseeing... More

Great location. Nice and clean. Friendly staff. English well spoken. Great noise insulation, extremely quiet for a hotel so near night spots. Price low to average for the area in prime season. The third bed was a real bed, not just a cot stuck in the middle of the room. Room was nice size, bathroom well appointed. We were very... More

Cannot say enough nice things about the accommodations at Hotel Sole. The rooms are clean and well-maintained. The staff is friendly and curtious. The location is amazing with a views of a florentine street that truly makes you feel like you are living in Florence. And you are within walking distance of everything. The rooms are a tad small but... More

Hotel Sole is in a great location close the the S.M.N trainstation in Florence. It is within walking distance (with luggage) however when we arrived we got a cab to the hotel (but on return to the station we walked as we knew our way around!)
