Spent a week in this rather tired hotel. Found the staff on reception helpful when we needed advice. Loved the breakfast waitress, a beaming smile always helps the day. Found it a good place to get around the city from lots of walking. Some excellent restaurants on nearby streets. The room was dark needed more lights, comfortable when the centrally... More

The La Fortezza was a lovely hotel which was close to most of the main attractions in Florence. We had reached early and it was nice to have the room ready for us. We faced a bit of a problem with the bathroom flush but the reception person was very prompt in rectifying the problem. The laptop provided by the... More

The room was equipped with everything you would need - a fridge, a safe, the air con was really great. I... More

The location of this hotel for me was an A+. Only a 15 minute walk from the train station and a few minutes walk to most attractions in Florence. The walk was also a safe walk. The service was great. It reminded me of a bed and breakfast I stayed at once in St Augustine, FL. My parents AC wasn't... More

Great hotel at a good price, booked through Expedia. About 20/30 minutes walk from city centre and 10 minutes to local restaurants. Hotel is very clean and comfortable. Staff couldn't be more helpful and friendly. Older style hotel which suited us as it feels more Florantine than the multi-nationals. Four stars instead of 5 just because there were no tea/coffee...

We booked 3 double rooms in this hotel in advance for discount price (2 months before). As we arrived to hotel, we got the information that some problems with our rooms were found out in the early morning and they had to make a reservation for us in another hotel. The other hotel is in the same district, even some... More

Average hotel, a bit unfriendly reception guys, good Wi Fi, poor restaurant location - feel like being in the basement. We used the room for only sleeping, so we got the average feeling Can recommend it to people who are there to mainly visit firenze ...

Well located hotel. Breakfast was fine, however we asked about trains to Lucca at reception and the young male receptionist looked at the computer and told us the first train wascat 13:30. This was nonsense as there was approx 6 or7 trains before then! Other than that though, the staff were very pleasant.
