Pros: 1. Location: very close to the train station on one side, and market on the other side. There is an excellent supermarket on the other side of the road. 5 minutes of brisk walking brings one to the Duomo. 2. Breakfast: eggs (scrambled and hard), hot sausage, cold meat, cheese (hard and soft), yoghurt, rolls and bread, cake, teas... More

Per other reviews, the bed and pillows were quite hard, but this wasn't a problem for us, I just didn't use a pillow. My other half is 190cm and had no issues with the size of the bed. The room was a reasonable size, spacious bathroom and decent wardrobe space. We had a room on the 2nd floor by the... More

Dear Guest, we are sorry you found all these problems during your stay. All our mattresses are new, perhaps for this reason you found it hard. Regarding the size we would like to inform you the beds are 190 cm, we do not understand how you could not sleep well. We think you could ask at the reception to help... More

Very noisy hotel! Beds and pillows very hard which made for not a lot of sleep. Internet off and on all the time. Breakfast needs more variety and 30mins before it finishes nothing is restocked so not a lot to have! Coffee available by breakfast room for all guest but it's either turned off or cold. Showers very small. Staff... More

Dear Guest, we inform you that all our windows are double glazed and all our mattresses are new. We cannot understand the reason you do not sleep well. Finally we would like to remember that the reception is open 24 hours for any reason so maybe you should ask for another room or to be helped to solve the problems... More

I stayed with my sister and our kids. My room was lovely although bathroom tiny. Her room was like a prison cell. Beds arranged in a long room one in front of the other. Tiny. Air con in my room was great, hers didn't work. The hotel changed her room after one night with no problems though. Breakfast is basic... More

The Cosimo de'Medici is in a fantastic location just a few minutes walk from the central station in Florence, so perfect if (like us) you came in on the train from Pisa or the Airport bus. The entrance is a shared one with other hotels and apartments, so keep your eyes open for the sign when you approach. Our room... More

This is a modern city hotel, with nice furnishings in small spaces,the room we stayed in had everything you need, with nice furnishings and a tall french window overlooking the street outside (nothing much to see there). Bed was large (probably a little larger than the room needed!) and very comfortable, small but very clean bathroom with a decent shower.... More

I can't say enough good things about this reasonably-priced hotel. The staff is wonderful. The hotel is a five minute walk from the main train and bus stations, yet our room (106) was totally quiet. Breakfast is fine (rolls, meats and cheeses, yogurt, cereal, etc, and always fresh fruit and cappuccino on hand) and the room offered excellent lighting so... More

This hotel was conveniently located just 5 minutes from the train station and all the attractions/ city center were all easy walking distance away. There is a grocery store to pick up some quick snacks and water just across the street. The room we got was nice, spacious and clean, but the walls are a bit thin so you can... More
