“Comfortable hotel with secure parking in Firenze”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2010

We have been staying here for at least 5 years. The rooms, although not large, are well-equipped and our superior room had a small balcony with table/chairs and a superb shower. The beds are comfortable and we obtained excellent feather pillows on request. The car park is secure which is very important if you are driving and it is close to Santa Maria Novella Church and the station. The food is ok but not wonderful and could be improved. Plenty of small restaurants close by and the river is very close.

What a pleasant place to stay in Florence. I know, you're probably thinking why would you stay in a Best Western in Italy. Here are some of the reasons - comfort, cleanliness, location, great staff, immaculate rooms, but, most of all, you know what you're getting. After having had one REALLY bad hotel experience in Florence, this hotel is a breath of fresh air. Without a doubt this is where I'll always stay when I'm in Florence.

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights in Florence. We narrowed our hotel selection by those with parking first and then relied on reviews/pricing to do the rest. We are pretty pleased with our choice to stay here. The parking was a must for us. The hotel staff were quite friendly and able to conduct most business in English. The room was modest in size, but nicely decorated - a combination of plush/modern. One cool thing was the flat screen TV in the room was personalized to our name/account and you could change the language and select from a variety of services - including a wake-up call from the TV.

The bed was comfortable and we had a nicely equipped bathroom with shower, hairdryer and toiletries. The room contained a mini-bar and a safe. We had a view of the parking lot in the back yard, but it was fine and not noisy. Breakfast was great and we often ate it in the garden seating area. There was a selection of pastries, coffees, meats, cheeses, eggs, bacon, cereal, yogurt and tons of fresh fruit.

The hotel location leaves a little something to be desired - there weren't a ton of sites or restaurants immediately nearby. That said, Florence is an easy town to walk around in and we weren't far from the city center or Ponte Vecchio by foot. We did happen to eat at a Japanese restaurant on a nearby corner and found it to be quite good (not that many people go to Italy to have Japanese food, but we just wanted to change things up a bit).

My wife and I planned an anniversary trip to Florence and wanted a bit of no nonsense luxury. We got this. The hotel is easy to find from the bus terminus - we got the bus from the airport. The staff speak English and were friendly. I had asked for a room with a double bed and a balcony and we got that. The room was small - as is usually the case with European rooms. It was quiet, the air conditioning worked fine although a little noisy. Breakfast was good - plenty of it and high quality European, that is meats and cheeses. Some bacon and scrambled eggs but we avoided these and had selection of fruits, cakes and aforementioned meats and cheeses. We had to ask for a kettle and tea / coffee but they were eager to supply it. It is a ten minute walk to the centre and although located in a poorer area of Florence it was never intimidating at night. The restaurant 'Maso' immediately opposite hotel is cheap and good. But we also ate in city centre and had a good experience - in a breathtaking location. Overall I would rate the hotel highly and recommend it to friends - we would be happy to go back.

I chose this hotel for value and convenience on a one-night business trip to Florence. If you get a good deal and want a cheap, clean and reliable hotel in the city centre, this is the choice for you. As you will see from my other Florence review (of Grand Hotel St. Maria Novella), I have a clear favorite in this city.

Free and available parking in the backyard is a great advantage if you’re just passing by Florence with a car.

We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights. This hotel is nice and very close to the Arno river. It's 10 minutes to walk to the Ponte Vecchio (you can walk along side the Arno river). The beds are hard to sleep in. The shower doesn't have a curtain to close while showering, but a small plastic covering (water tends to splash on the flower). The front desk staff was helpful to some extent (some individuals). There was one front desk staff (short man with curly hair) who is very sarcastic and responds to questions in a manner as though he's bothered; this makes one uncomfortable to ask ANYTHING at all. I have traveled to Italy several times, therefore I am somewhat seasoned and not the first time tourist...this staff member could insult anyone from his behavior. All in all, everyone else was trained in customer service. The waiters in the morning breakfast were friendly (especially Giacomo!!) He spoke English and initiated conversations with the guests.

Nothing wrong with a stay here. Great location for driving to, not to difficult if you follow their directions. The car park is small, we arrived late so it was full, but they have a deal with a garage around the corner for €20 a day - not bad for Florence and pretty hassle free. The location is great for sight seeing, short walk to all the major attractions and the river. We travelled with our young baby, so wernt out late, its a city centre location but we never felt anything but at ease. So to the Hotel, I was a bit worried as we email to confirm a babys cot bed but got no reply, but when we arrived everything was ready for us to our relief. I know its said in most other reviews(which I did not beleive) but the staff were really excellent, I really have to stress that. The hotel was comfortable if a little dated, but you are not in Florence to stay in your hotel room. We ate in the resturant across the road which was good and also good value, and the one in the hotel which was neither. Breakfast was good, usual buffet fair and plenty of it.
