Me and my cousin have been backpacking across Europe the past few weeks and we were totally blown away by the genuine loveliness of the couple that owns this hotel! Nothing was too much trouble for them and they were an all round delight, showing us all the best restaurants, where the best views were etc! We even came back... More

Second hotel on our 14 day tour. Pros: Great location, close to train station. Pierro was an extremely pleasant host. Cons: Entrance from the street is a little eery - 3 sets of doors - felt like we were going into a cave and all the locks and bolts were a little daunting. We had Room #1 which is right... More

I give relais five stars based on what you pay here vs other places in Florence I've stayed. It is a good deal for a clean, friendly environment. Pierre was fabulous. As other reviewers have mentioned, he gave us lots of attention and helped us find some good spots for gelato and dinner. He watched our bags all day and... More

The couple who own this place, are amazing. SUPER friendly, will take the time to advise you, chat, Pierro told us the best restaurants, even the best place to find Gelatto (and both were totally on the money). His wife gave us great advice for day trips. They make you feel at ease. Rooms are large for Italy standards. Our... More

The location of the Relais was fantastic- a few minutes walk from the station and a few minutes walk to the centre of the city. We were allocated a room away from the hotel, an apartment a few streets away. I think this suited our needs better but it was a slightly unusual and unexpected step. The room was an... More

We stayed here for one night in October. Piero and Marcela were really helpful and excellent hosts...nothing too much trouble. Marcela gave us a map and told us where to visit. We could leave our bags forthe whole day we checked out if we wanted to. Location is really good....close to the station and near the centre. Only criticism was... More

The owner is very nice and helpful and has great recommendations. The location is not bad - 15 minutes walk from city center. The rooms are clean and very big. The breakfast is very basic and may not be enough, especially if you travel with kids (there is a supermarket nearby)

It was a central location and quite easy to find. The train and bus stations are close. and so is the shopping. You can walk to all the attractions. The rooms are very clean and neat no kettle provided you must use your microwave to heat your water for the coffee.I had a very nice room off a garden. There... More

I couldn't recommend Relais Florence Hotel more. Piero and Marcela are so friendly and welcoming, you feel as if you're staying with friends! They offer you everything you need along with superb recommendations for attractions and food - they can't do enough for you. Lovely clean rooms, great location and all for an unbeatable price. I really couldn't fault it.

Just spent 2 nights here. Found it easily from the train station. Great location, great price, great room, friendly staff and a clean and tidy room. Nice having a fridge and microwave. Highly recommended for great stay in Florence. Lots of places to eat nearby, and close to a lot of amazing sights. Can't wait to go back!
