Perhaps the best price quality relation that you could find in Florence to stay. Ancient place but comfortable and clean. Nice breakfast also. The weak point is that it is a little far from the city center to went walking.

We spent three nights here. The room is spacious. The Wi-Fi is hard to get connected, we ended up using our own hot spot device. The bathroom is so dark with very dim light. The breakfast is continental breakfast and is the only three star hotel that we have stayed in Italy which does not provide egg or any hot... More

My wife and I stayed here in early May and found it to be satisfactory, without being anything special. It is an average 3 star hotel and gives good value for money. Our main issue was that on two afternoons about three o,clock we came back for arest and the room had not been touched. No coff/tea making possibilities. A... More

The woman at the front desk (the owner's daughter?) was unfriendly and unhelpful. The hotel is very tired, and grubby, badly in need of painting and cleaning of furniture, bedspread and curtains. The bed had a big divit on the edge where people sit down. WiFi was not working and the only thing that the woman at reception had to... More

We arrived to an indifferent greeting and mumbled instructions. A few of staff on reception too busy on their mobiles to talk. Positives: clean accommodation, lovely huge bed and clean sheets and bathroom. Bathroom quite modem. Negatives: paint work everywhere marked and dirty. No air con, we went for three nights in glorious April weather. Bitten by very noisy Mosquitos.... More

Stayed at this hotel for 3 nights beginning of March. I got a great price booking it worked out to be about £18 per person per night so I really wasn't expecting much. In fact I dreaded arriving however was pleasantly surprised. The hotel was lovely, small and quirky. Reception staff were friendly and all staff were bilingual. The bed... More

Our room was clean and quite. Beds were comfortable We had a great view. The stocked fridge was reasonably priced. We were greeted every morning going in for breakfast and were asked how we would like our coffee. They were more than happy to make cappuccino for us. Good variety of food and beverage to choose from. We found it... More

I stayed at La Fortezza on March 18th-21st. It was a fairly average stay. The bed and linens were clean and towels were stocked daily. The flooring in our room was hardwood floors but they had begun to separate, which didn't look good with the already paint chipped walls. Our room had a nice view to our surprise considering it...
