This hotel is very comfortable and clean. The staff were very friendly and helpful, but unfortunately the hotel is too far from the centre of town .It probably takes approx 1 hour to walk to the centre. I will stay here again whenever we visit Florence.

Booked this hotel through our local travel agent. Came home and checked Trip advisor and wondered what on earth we were going to get. I did want to change but glad I didn't. The room was nothing like what other reports had said. It was clean and tidy. As it is an old building some of it looks a bit... More

Not only doesn't this hotel deserve its two stars but it shouldn't even be allowed to exist. My boyfriend and I found it after searching for like 2 hours cause there was not even a `hotel' sign visible from the street. To enter the building you have to step in dirty water, then take the most minuscule elevator ever (maximum... More

This is truly the worst experience imaginable. My stomach wretches when I think of how awful my experience was. How can this hotel be permitted to exist. It is disgusting! The dirt on the walls in the bathroom was incredible. The dirt around the shower was dreadful. The room was small, beds unclean, mattresses so old ,furniture cheap and nasty.Think... More

The hotel is in the middle of the historical city center near duomo and piaza signoria and far just little steps from the trainstation. It's not so beautiful but is nice, comfortable and clean, the breakfast is excellent and the staff kind and likeable. There is a beautiful terrace on the roof where to be able to make breakfast, to... More

I took a group fo 30 students to this hotel. Staff were really rude and unfriendly. Each room was filthy, dingy and cramped. Some rooms had unsafe electric sockets and poor lighting. The paint effect on the walls was reminiscent of the toilet scene in the film 'train spotting'. All the rooms we stayed in had damp and mould patches... More

The hotel Derby has its positives. The bed was nice and firm, the location to the station and town was great. The double room was reasonably spacious. The bathroom was small but clean. The roof garden looked like it would be a nice spot in summer time. umm....what else....? the breakfast was ok - not great, but ok. The problems?... More

This really small and dingy hotel is a dump. I'm not picky about hotels but I really had a problem with this one. The room I had smelled sooooo bad. I can't describe the odor, but it was so horrid that the first night I slept with the window open. The second night was cold so I suffered through a... More

This was our first time in Florence and it certainly wont be our last. The city is spectacular, the people are genuinely friendly and it was made even more special by the great service we received from the staff at Hotel Derby. Granted the rooms are basic in decoration but at the end of the day it is a 2... More
