The room was well appointed, clean with nice refreshments in the room. The hotel was located a block from the train station which was very convenient for us. It was a pleasant walk to most amenities and attractions. The buffet breakfast was delicious and catered for a broad range of tastes: European, American and Asian - they really try to... More

This family-owned and operated hotel made our trip to Italy so special. It put us in a good mood right off the bat. Friendly front desk staff and a nice cozy room on the first floor was truly appreciated after an 8 hour flight and one hour train ride. The bathroom had a heated towel rack and comfy towels. Also...

From the moment I stepped into the hotel, the welcome was warm and friendly. The woman at reception seemed sincerely concerned with the comfort of her guests. I arrived early in the morning, she did her best to see if there was a room I can check in before hours; when there wasn't, she was very nice about storing my... More

Very nice and helpful staff. My husband and I stayed in this hotel in June 2013 based on the reviews. But very disappointed, apart from the good location that near to the train station, friendly and helpful staff; the room is old, dated and most of the furnitures are falling apart and some were glued back. The table top in... More

Hotel Berna is ideally located near the train station 5-10 minutes walking distance to all attractions and restaurants in Florence. The rooms are large and beautifully decorated, which comes as a surprise when you first see the somewhat no-descript building the hotel is located in. A special mention to the wonderfully friendly and helpful staff of this hotel. Highly recommended.

I would say this is more of a cosy apartment than of a hotel standard. Located in an old building near the main train station, the location is definitely excellent & offers a good value for $.

This bed and breakfast hotel is in a very old building, it's charming, it has a balcony and the staff are extremely helpful. However the rooms are very old and done in an antique style. If you are looking for something modern with nice modern facilities you might consider looking elsewhere. The bathroom shower drains to the floor making a... More
