The hotel is located near the motorway, so it is convinient if you need a hotel to stay in for a night or two. To see the center of the city, you have to take a bus, the bus station is only few minutes away. The neighbourhood is not so pleasant, but that's not a problem for a shorter stay.... More

The best part about my stay was the staff and the HUGE terrace! The room itself was very cigarette smelling, small, and I did have a few of those large yellow ants mentioned by others. But the staff and location were great for what I needed. If you're staying here mostly to sleep before a flight, go for it. If... More

Close to Autostrada and Airport, in hotel you can buy bus tickets and get all the necessary tips for moving around the city.Free car parking. Clean room and bathroom , we found even a device against mosquitoes . Very large balcony. Breakfast simple but good enough to stand the day. Friendly and very helpfull staff.

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

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
