I chose this hotel from the internet, I wanted to stay there 2 nights for a 3 days sightseeing. For me the hotel was such perfect: the room was small but I just needed a bed to sleep somewhere, the breakfast was a lot and was good, but the main point of the hotel is the excellent position. In five... More

If you're on a budget and does not have any particular need except for a bed and a bathroom, this is a place to consider. 5 minutes walking away from both railway station Santa Maria Novella and city centre (Duomo, etc...), the position is the principal reason to book this place. Decent rooms (the place was going to be refurbished... More

Situated near by the central station and all important museums and sights. Good service in lobby, clean room (except for mouldy stains in the bathroom) but in need of some renovation. Breakfast OK with very white toast, jam and spread cheese. Good coffee. Very friendly staff. A good basic hotel worth the price in a city where you're not supposed... More

We arrived at Hotel Derby with the excitement of the Terrace, too bad for us that it was beat up and not very pretty at all, but the view of the duomo is exceptional. The bedroom was really tiny, so not ideal for a young child who needs space to move. On the other hand once we got into bed... More

The Hotel Derby is definatly a backpackers type place. The building is owned by one person. There are several floors that are hostels and the Hotel Derby is one wing of the 3rd floor. The only difference between it and a hostel is that it has private bathrooms. It is a VERY clean hotel. The rooms had A/C and comfortable... More

The hotel is very nice! But it's rather old. It is situated just 5 minutes from railway station and 5 minutes walk from the city center. Great location! Friendly staff, good breakfast for this price!

Admittably the room was large and had aircon (altho was old and noisy ) but the room and the bathroom was soooo disgusting and dirty, The lift is a deathtrap and the breakfast was foul ! We arrived to a line-up of backpacker type travellers lining... More

Great for the price...comfortable with airconditioning and free internet access (for 30mins). Has a fabulous roof top terrace with great city views. Staff are fantastic and allow you to take own food and drinks to have on the roof top terrace if you want to save some money and not eat out. Well worth staying for a good price.
