The room was somewhat clean and all amenities were there. Close to airport. Front desk staff was more interested in having a conversation together then paying attention to guests. elevator too small for suitcases (2 carry ons) and 2 humans!

Franchi is a hotel which is not downtown, but near the airport. Having a car helps a lot. The hotel itself was clean, offered a private parking which was important for us. The temperature inside was just perfect having in mind it can be too hot in Florence in summer. The breakfast was also very good and the staff were... More

Nothing fancy, modest price, close to airport, seedy neighbourhood, good for one night. Reception staff seemed more interested in talking on the phone instead of replying to the questions of guests before them.

Spent 3 days here and thoroughly enjoyed it. Very crowded but lots of great shopping and restaurants. The only real negative is the taxi situation, pray you won't need one. This is the worst city ever for moving around by taxi!!!!! You will also need a good map so that when you get lost, and you will get lost, you... More

This hotel was booked for our party of four because it was close to the airport and our flight was leaving very early the next morning. As soon as we checked in we were told that the hotel was overbooked and of course, they were sorry, but not to worry, because they had arranged for a hotel down the way... More

We arrived here after driving from Rome through Pisa and were ready for a nice rest. We entered the room and instantly were hit with the smell of sewer gases. They had incense and potpourri put out on the desk with the windows open and the heat exchange turned all the way up. Clearly they knew of the smell. We... More

This hotel is more of a two star accommodation rather than a three star. The hotel is located a significant distance from the center of Florence. The breakfast was limited compared to the other hotels that we stayed in while visiting Italy. The beds were comfortable and the mechanical window coverings kept the sunlight and heat out allowing for very... More

I cannot speak more highly of this wonderful Hotel, and most particularly, it's staff. It is a very clean, attractive Hotel, and, as far as my experience and my friend's experience here, every request was immediately responded to, no matter how many times I, in particular, requested something, and ALWAYS with a lovely smile and chat. Staff were particularly helpful... More
