The hotel is located really close to the train station (Santa Maria Novella), and is approximately a five minute walk. Nadia at the front desk was absolutely delightful, sharing information on places to check out, information about the market, and suggestions for restaurants. She also gave us a number of historical insights into Florence - you can tell she really... More

Do not stay here. You should be suspicious because they force you to pay up-front for the full number of nights you plan to use. Then they give you a dingy room. When you want to leave they refuse to refund your money. We walked out after one night yet they charged us for 3. They charge you up-front for... More

This hotel is in a really great location, literally around the corner from the train station and convenient to everywhere you'd want to go in the city. The real perk to staying here was Maria, who helps work the front desk and is one of the most outgoing, hilarious, and most helpful people you could meet. She immediately whipped out... More

Hotel Elite. In Sept. my family stayed in Hotel Elite 4 nights. It is very good location to choose. Firstly it is walkable distance only from railway station. Area of the hotel is very clean and quiet. Many of the attractions are in that area. Santa Maria Novella is one among them. There is a large open ground infront of... More

This accommodation is in a great location- minutes from the train station, and able to walk to many of the major sights- Accademia, the duomo, piazzelle Michelangelo, Ponte Vecchio. The price was fantastic compared to other accomodations in Florence. The down sides of this hotel would be the room- the bed was so loud that I would wake myself up... More

Stayed in Florence for 1 night. Not sure if this hotel is for business during the week but it seemed like a business hotel. It's in a decent location, right down the road from a Soccer stadium where we saw a game. The hotel is very very clean. We ate at the hotel restaurant and the food was excellent. We... More

I found Hotel Elite quite by chance on the Internet, as I searched for places to stay when in Florence. My trip was both business and pleasure, as I planned to take in a small portion of a computing conference before moving to more cultural activities. I was travelling alone, so a safe city centre location was a must. The... More

The location is great, right in the center, 10 minutes to walk to the dome. Nadia - the hotel keeper is very friendly and helpful with tip to visit Florence and other cities in Italy! Upon her suggestion we visited Luca and it was just awesome. Suggested - Spend less time in Pisa and her for Luca instead. Internet connection... More
