4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2011

Folks this is an excellant location but showers are very small and be sure to bring your own shampoos and lotions becuase they ownly provide just small shampoo and wash, grant it it is not a five star but nicely kept and very clean. it is walking distance to everything shopping resturants coffee shops and dogs are very good and well behaved why isn't my dog nicki lol. so off i am to the duomo wow incredible site it is jam packed if you don't like crowds beware this may not be for you but you can't leave till you see it !! i will post pictures.becareful of your wallet here the gypsies are expert pickpockets and you must watch your valuables expecially when many people are crammed together for 9 millions people visit this amazing church! There is a square that has singers and very sweet and romantic for a new wed or couple. email me for any questions.it is very confusing to find the street bring a map please or you will be walking in circles for hours!

Room Tip: we had a great room on the 2nd floor

I was pleasantly surprised when I stepped into the Hotel Centrale in Florence. It is on the second floor of an older building and the entrance to the building itself looked a little shabby. Not so once we entered the Hotel. It has been beautifully remodeled and the rooms and bathrooms are huge by European standards. The staff at the front desk was very helpful in storing our luggage while we left to explore Florence (before our room was ready). They were accommodating at every turn. Great buffet breakfast that will not leave you hungry. We enjoyed an interesting breakfast beverage and asked one of the women working in the breakfast room what it was. She explained it was what we in the U.S. call blood orange juice (arancia rosa). We went back to our room to get our things before leaving to explore and she caught up with us to give us each a small bottle of the juice we enjoyed. Very sweet and typical of our stay there. Hotel Centrale is in a great location! Within easy walking distance of the train station, Duomo, Mercato Centrale and many of the other sites in Florence. It was a reasonable price and we would definitely stay there again.

This was my third stay at Hotel Centrale, and as usual everything was excellent. Staff people went out of their way to help us, including calling Rome to confirm tours there. Breakfast was the best I can recall in 8 trips to Italy, including cold cuts, pastries, cereal, yogurt, fresh fruit, etc, plus capuccino. Rooms are not huge by US standards, but larger than most in Europe, and the bathrooms are modern and well-organized.

The location is superb, a few blocks from the Duomo in one direction and a few blocks from the San Lorenzo market in another. It's on a quiet street with limited one-way traffic, so street noise is non-existent.

They also provide free internet!

This attractive hotel is down the street from the duomo and within easy walking distance of all the major sights, yet is quiet and peaceful. The breakfast was the best of all the places we stayed in Italy. The staff were courteous and helpful.

A very quiet hotel on an upper floor just a short walk from the train station and the Duomo. A small elevator takes you up if you don't want to hike the palazzo stairs. A wonderful escape from crazy, noisy Firenze. Staff is super-helpful, friendly, and speak excellent English. Breakfast is European and very tasty, with plenty of cheese, pastry, bread, and sliced meats. Rooms are clean and comfortable (except for the usual hard Italian mattress.) Hotel has a small bar with espresso machine and you can purchase a drink anytime of day. Many good eateries in the neighborhood. Just a few blocks from Santa Maria Novello train station on one side and Brunellesci's Dome on the other. Most major tourist attractions are within walking distance. Free wifi is in the bar/breakfast area. There is also a pc available near the front desk.

Clean, good price, excellent location, good breakfast, very friendly and professional staff. Arrived by car and hotel has an agreement with a parking service near by. What more can one ask? Perhaps a bit more umpf in the cappucino? Or by adding some chair glides to the chairs in the breakfast room? Though both are luxury details and would not stop me from going back to the hotel. So in short - a hotel a really recommend.
