There seemed to be a bit of Fawlty Towers about this hotel. Rooms were strange shapes and sizes. Staff were quite unhelpful and rude on one hand and other times they were wonderful and would do anything to help. Bathroom was refreshingly good and clean. Good hot water and shower head. But the hairdryer really needs updating. Heated towel rail... More

My travel girlfriend and I just returned from a whirlwind Venice-Florence 3-day weekend. I booked Hotel Donatello on booking.com based on its location near the historic quarter. To get here from the train station, exit through the front door of Firenze SMN Station, cross the street, go right to the corner (McDonalds on left). Turn left at the stoplight then... More

This is a charming hotel. We had a very spacious room with a comfortable and large double bed. The bathroom was very large, and had a corner bath which worked well as a shower too.There was also a bidet. It was a short walk to the city centre which has more restaurants and bars than you can shake a stick... More

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...
