I stayed in Hotel Franchi at the end of January and basically because it was the nearest hotel to the Airport (flight landed at 19.00, so needed a airport hotel). I originally was thinking of walking it but the Airport Hotel said get a taxi (€10) and I suggest you do because its tucked away off the main street in... More

I like Hotel Franchi. I book this hotel after reading decent ratings in Trip Ad. Free and anytime parking at hotel was important for me.

At Hotel Franchi it is the staff that counts.... Zinet was always helpful. I stayed for two nights and easily got in an out of Centro by bus with her help. Yes the neighborhood looks funky but it is safe and has enough around the area to occupy one before they go to airport. It is true that a 5... More

We made reservations at this hotel because of Trip Advisors recommendations. We were greeted by Michael who quickly got us settled in and showed us how to use the bus to town. He also had tickets to sell which made it a lot easier. Next we met Zinet, a lovely young woman who gives a whole new meaning to the... More

The Hotel is in a secluded neighborhood with nothing around worth seeing. I went there for the night from Florence as I had a very early flight. Cost me $28 euros to get there from the city and then I was told ALTHOUGH airport is 800mts as posted...a taxi ride of 15euros is required to get there! I could had... More

We booked the Hotel Franchi because we were looking for a hotel close to the airport (7:30 AM flight), within our budget, and highly rated on Trip Advisor. This hotel met all of our requirements and then met all our expectations. The staff was friendly, helpful, correctly estimated the cost of the taxi to the airport (we were leaving and... More

My husband and I stayed in hotel Franchi in September for 2 nights when visiting Florence. It is located out of the centre of Florence, which is exactly why we picked it. Parking in Florence can be a problem and it is expensive, which is why we left our car at the hotel parking (free of charge) and we took... More

I arrived in Florence late and needed a hotel close to the airport for next day's travel. Hotel Franchi was close and convenient! The room was adequate for my needs, clean and well organized, with a coffee/tea maker and essential supplies. There was a slight (and temporary) problem with key cards: I could lock the room from the inside, but... More

There are no blankets other than an extra cloth on the bed, The key machine was broken so we needed to be walked to our room, Breakfast had few options, no... More

We stayed here for one night to be near to the AirPort , leaving next day. Nice staff, friendly and serviceminded . Rooms ok, but keep the windows closed at night; the mosquitos are looking out for you.. Simple breakfast , but the Espresso was good!
