Hotel Elite is conveniently a located, clean and friendly hotel. Nadia, the hotel receptionist was extremely helpful and sweet! We really appreciated her advice and felt we got the most out of our trip to Florence because of her kindness. The bedroom was functional comfortable, and very clean! The only thing you need to be aware of is that the... More

The Hotel is only 10 minutes walk from the railway terminal, in a neighborhood both safe and convenient, and relatively quiet. The building is very old, but the hotel is reasonably renovated. The rooms are all varied in size and the condition. The one we had was located on the main floor, which was clean and generally ok, It had... More

Great stay. I booked a single room here end of August. Good size for one person. Great block out windows, very dark. Perfect location, only a 5 minute walk to the Santa Maria Novella Train station and about a 10 minute walk to domo. Safe feeling area and very friendly staff. Only thing I would say is there is a...

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

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
