The best part of the hotel is the lady at the front desk. Rarely would you find someone so warm and helpful. The rooms are great value for money, and the breakfast is a decent spread as well. It is a little out from the city centre, but pretty well connected via public transport. If staying in the city centre... More

This is a simple hotel in the suburbs of Florence pretty near the Airport. Rooms are clean and simple with tv, wifi and ensuite bathroom. This is not a luxury hotel but a simple place where you can stay at a very reasonable price.

We went on our honeymoon to Florence only for 2 days. It was advised not to drive to the city center so we picked this hotel that is close to A1 highway and the airport with a big free parking lot. We left the car at the parking lot and took the buses to the city center (2 euro). The... More

It is always advised not to drive to Florence city centre but taking the bus. Nevertheless, we encountered bus strike in Florence during the several days of our stay in mid Sep 2014. We waited for hours without a bus picking up passengers to city centre. During our stay at the hotel, we had several long talks with Ziuit (her... More

The staff at Hotel Franchi are capable, friendly and responded promptly when I made last minute reservations. Overall, the entire staff were excellent. Our requested taxi arrived promptly at 4:30 am and we were in and out with minimal fuss. The location of this hotel is superior with quick access to the airport. Our room was clean, although small.

I recently spent one night in the Hotel Franchise near the Florence airport. The hotel was very clean and comfortable. The best part of this little place is the Hotel Manger "Roman" he is very nice and interesting. Roman will do what ever he can to make you feel comfortable. He suggested a near by restaurant that was very authentic... More

I recently spent one night in the Hotel Franchi near the airport in Florence. It was convenient, comfortable, clean and quiet when the windows were closed. The room was satisfactory for two people and the bathroom was also comfortable. I would recommend it to people who arrive late in Florence and need a convenient place to stay or to people... More

We came to Florence for 2 nights and stayed at hotel franchi. We arrived at night and were very concerned about the area - it didn't feel safe. The rooms are a little dated but they are very clean. One issue I had was the glass in our door/window seemed to rattle, and any time there was wind or a... More

At first, my friend and I thought the hotel was too far from everything and would make our stay difficult. But Zinit, the most helpful front desk reception staff person, assisted us with all our needs and helped us get the most out of the city of Florence. We were tired from our travels within Italy and she stored our... More

We wanted a place close to the airport because we had a 6:30 AM flight home- and needed to return a rental car. Hotel Franchi was a perfect choice. It is not a luxury hotel (some reviewers said it needs major renovations; I disagree) it is great value for money; my husband I were extremely happy we stayed there and... More
