“You can find better at this price level”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2014

I wouldnt recommend this one...we booked this one by mistake and saw that we could get MUCH better at the same price level. The hotel was really cheap feeling and the rooms were really bare and not well kept up. The bed was old and cheap, the cable barely worked, you couldnt control the heating except for at night, the toilet always backed up and the internet constantly went out. The location was ok, right near the train station...but nothing in Florence's old district is far away. I would recommend looking for an alternative to this hotel.

I really disappointed of this hotel.The only good thing was the location , as it is really close to the main train station of Florence.
The room was old, dark and dirty!But the worse thing was our shower - the pressure was so weak, that we couldn't even have a normal shower! and mirror was very dirty! Really was unpleasant to stay in the room! The front desk even do not say hi or bye when you come or go out of the hotel and the breakfast is very poor.I would never stay there again!

Room Tip: choose another place!

Right next to the bus and train station you can't fault this hotel for location and the staff were extremely helpful, providing us with maps, and printed out our train tickets and recommended a good place to eat nearby. The room needed some serious renovation and while my bed was obviously new, the other one was in danger of collapsing. The hotel decoration left a lot to be desired, in places things were held together with duct tape, but the room was heated and the showers hot and the wifi worked in the room, well most of the time anyway. We didn't bother with the breakfast as the local cafes were so good with fresh juice, pastries and coffee.

We did not enjoy our stay at Hotel Byron, while it was clean in our rooms the beds were very old and very uncomfortable. The bathroom luckily had a fan( which barely worked) otherwise we wouldn't have been able to breath after a shower. Our room was really noisy also, the street is very busy and the sound travelled up in addition there was a lot of noise coming from the hallway and the pipes if the building.

The breakfast was crap crap crap we had three breakfast there and only had one because it was yuck that had no selection and cheap square ham. Come on people it's Italy! The bread was old also not fresh!

Some of the staff really didn't seem that excited about working here either which is really off putting.

The only good thing we found about this hotel was the location two mins from the train stations and really close to the main attractions!

We will not stay here again.

I stayed in this hotel for 5 days with a friend in December. It was very clean and you get clean towels everyday and the maid cleans the room everyday. There was no lock on the bathroom and the window did not close properly, as the lock was broken. They served a fantastic breakfast with plenty of choice. You need to go for breakfast between 07.30- 08.00am, otherwise you won't get much. It is in a perfect location close to everything and five minutes to the train station.

The only downside is that on a Friday and Saturday night you will not get much sleep, as the road is very noisy with trucks and motorbikes. Also, the party goers are very noisy which was quite annoying. If I had known this before booking then I would never have booked it.
