Close to airport and helpful english speaking staff. Early flight out of Florence had me book this room in order to be at the airport at 4:30 a.m. Wake up call and taxi ordered as requested. Airport is 4-5 mins by taxi.

Hotel Franchi is an ideal, budget-conscious place to stay in Florence. a 3 minute ($15 Euro) cab from the airport; a clean and well-appointed room (where I slept for 11 solid hours and overcame jet lag); and a 10-15 minute (1.5 Euro) bus ride to the heart of the city. Ask the front desk for bus tickets--and for maps, and... More

Clean beds and bathroom. Close to Autstrada and Airport, in hotel you can buy bus tickets and get all the necessary tips for moving around the city. Breakfast simple (fruit ?) but good enough to stand the day. Friendly and helpfull staff.

The hotel is conveniently located near Florence airport and especially indicated if you have to catch an early morning flight. The staff is competent and friendly. The hotel is clean with very good free wifi. The downside, at least for my room, was the bed pillow which was very thin and floppy... really unconfortable to sleep with.

This hotel is perfect if you have a car. The free parking gives you the chance to leave the car and avoid the city chaos, take the bus and enjoy the city on foot, which is obviously the best way to do it. There´s a bus that takes you to the city in ten minutes and it stops a block... More

Roman, at the front desk of this hotel is the most personable and professional host we have yet to meet during our European vacation. We've been to a few hotels in Europe and expect to book a couple more before our trip is over. If future concierge agents are half as helpful as Roman has been, we'll consider ourselves very... More

Been here for 5 nights and couldn't really recommend this to anyone normal. The room and the bathroom is spacious (which is the only good thing beside free parking). Loads of yellow ants are all around the room floor, my suitcase was full of it even two days later. The bathroom is smelly due to old pipes so in case... More

Good: Clean, friendly staff, free parking, reasonable pricing, close to airport Bad: Well outside the city, in case your room faces the street you will get the noise. When you fell asleep you would get the noise from other rooms. The noise is really annoying!!

The hotel was convenient to the airport. The price was good, the staff welcoming, friendly and helpful without being intrusive. Booking a taxi to the airport for our friends was no problem and Roman suggested a fun restaurant where we ate very well. The area is a bit rundown, but we were not there to see the sights, simply to... More

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
