We read the reviews of the Globus and were expecting something quite different than what we experienced. In order to reach reception,you have to climb 2 flights of stairs from the street level. The reception area is pretty pathetic looking. On the bright side, the gentlemen who are at the desk, Lukasz and Nikola are wonderful and helped carry the... More

Average hotel. Quite easy to locate using Google map, at a back street. Staffs were helpful. One thing to comment about was that there were some vague bad smells from blanket and bed sheet. We slept without using blanket. Should improve on the cleaniness. Overall still acceptable for a budget one night stay.

As what many reviewers had mentioned, this hotel is really just next to the main attractions. It is so convenient that we could take a mid day break to freshen up and then continue on to the next attraction. It is also only minutes away from the train station so the location is really perfect. The staff is attentive, friendly... More

We booked this hotel through travel supermarket as it was a fair price and five minuets walk from major land marks such as the Duomo. We had an amazing time in Florence, the staff at the hotel were extremely friendly, nothing was to much trouble for them. Even when we came home and hadn't had time to grab dinner, the... More

We stayed in a triple room on the reception floor, and it was specious and nicely decorated. But the bathroom beat all our expectations; it was plain royal, the size of some hotel rooms in other European hotels. Location is unmatched, minutes to everything you might want or need, and a happy hour every evening with wine and snacks just... More

Great location near the central market and train station (and what seems to be...chinatown? lots of very authentic looking chinese restaurants and small groceries on the same block). We were only here for one night so we were ok staying in the tiny room on the same level as reception but if we had stayed longer we would probably not... More

Dear frostberryice, thank you very much for your review even if we are sad to hear that you were not totally satified with your stay. May we suggest, for the next time, that you book one of our Superior Rooms? Most of them guarantee extra space thus extra natural light? I am sure that you would be very happy about... More

Overall good stay. The room that we had was very large for European standards, however, based on pictures and experience of other guests, it looks like there isn't a standard size room. The front desk was very accommodating and helpful. Good central location, and very walkable, but off any main streets as to avoid loud crowds.

Amy M, Thank you very much, we really appreciate your review and are really glad you enjoyed your stay thouroghly. You are right, most of our rooms ( I would say most of the rooms in the city centre of Florence) can not be standard as our hotel is located in a building which dates back to the 18th Century...

Hotel Globus is a small hotel tucked down a small street in central Florence. We arrived by Train from Venice and was a bit a lost in getting to the hotel, but eventually found it. It is approx 10-15 min walk from the main Florence Train Station. The reception is on the first floor and there is no lift from... More
