I've contacted the hotel via phone from Australia 4 times to speak to my mother from last night to this morning still have had no luck in speaking to her as the incompetent reception staff are unable to find out which room my mother is in, they are asking me the number of her room, do they not believe in...

We stayed for two nights with a group of friends at this hotel, we were given room 109 which is accessed from the garden courtyard. The room was a reasonable size but the major problem was the mosquitoes getting into the room from the garden and feasting on us! The hotel is reasonably central for the centre. Breakfast buffet was... More

Average but it could be easily improved. Good location and good breakfast makes are this hotel best features. The staff was really nice as well but it sucks that even these days they charge you for WiFI. There's free wifi all around Florence anyway so it's no big problem. Weird room numeration as well, sometimes 2XX won't be in the... More

Great location to stay in florence no matter how you're arriving. We hired a car and finding the hotel was very easy with a Sat Nav. Parking was easy to sort out and the people at the hotel were so helpful. Breakfast is the standard continental style which was nice and did the job. With the location and staff I... More

We were dubious about this hotel before arriving having read mixed review but we were pleasantly surprised. We had a large split level room with the bed upstairs and bathroom downstairs. It was quiet and had air conditioning which was pleasant. The bathroom was large, modern with a good shower. Breakfast was basic but nice and fresh. The hotel is... More

Hotel Donatello is close to Florence central station and Piazza del Duomo. It provides a good continental breakfast buffet and the room is clean and comfortable. Unfortunately the hotel charges for wi-fi, however it is easy to get for free at most restaurants and cafes in Florence. A great hotel if you want somewhere comfortable and convenient to spend a...

My family and I stayed here 4 nights. The room we had was fairly large and clean. The staff was nice but we had to constantly call the front desk to have them turn the a/c on when we were in the room (controlled by the them)...Annoying! Wifi was billed in 15, 60 and 120 min increments. Room safe was... More

Great place to stay. Good location, 10 min walk from station and 15 min walk from Duomo. Found staff to be friendly and helpful. They helped us take our bags to our room which we had early access to and readily answered any questions we had. The room was quiet and clean. We had a room on the street but... More

I fully recommend you to do not go to the Hotel Donatello. It is a daylight robbery ! Reasons: - not friendly atmosphere - apart of the room price, you are going to be forced to pay 15€ per person cash. They say is a city tax for tourists who sleep in hotels. They didn't give me any official receipt... More

My daughter and I were in the same party as Judith, whose comment is below, and I concur with her description, although our issues were not so traumatic. Our Hotel Donatello experience was more Fawlty Towers than Room With A View. We had asked for a twin room, but on arrival were allocated a quad with two strangers from our... More
