The location is a couple blocks away from central Florence - right by the cathedral and close to ponte vecchio bridge. only downside really is the noise since it is so close to the heart of the city. great restaurants around, free wifi, the workers are so friendly and accommodating. they also have a laundry service which is awesome if...

When we booked in Florence we found it hard to find a decent hotel with good prices. I found this hotel on booking.com and the prices were decent so we booked this hotel. The hotel is very close to SM Novella station and it is in a very good location. Close to duomo and very nice shops. When we got... More

The staff is very helpfull. Good location in the shopping streets. (Even though we would prefer to stay closer to all the great restaurants rather than close to (exclusive) shopping.) The room is clean. We are surprised that hotel Sole only have one star!

Pros: has a lift, relatively inexpensive, clean and cleaned each day, great wi-fi, good location, receptionists are very friendly. Cons (and quite a lot): budget type hotel, very poor noise cancelation in our room (7), slightly dingy- could use some renovation, mattresses are quite poor, air condition does not function (the story was that the weather in Florence is bipolar...

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
