We booked a double room for 1 night in August 2011 at Golf Hotel in Florence.
I choosed this hotel, even if there were cheaper hotels in historical center, because of the free parking, very important when you have a car in Florence.
When we arrived we were told that Parking was full, and we can try to find a parking zone outside in the street, but of course it was not free (3€ per hour from 8am to 8pm !!). I insisted on the fact that i chosed the hotel for the free parking and asked for back-up solutions, but obviously it was not a big concern for the receptionnist.
His only answer was to say : "We have a parking but it's full. We didn't give you guarantee of a parking, show me somewhere it's written parking is guaranteed."
We finally parked in the street, with no security, and we paid 35€, only for 1 day...
The hotel is a bit old fashionned, rooms quite small but clean, and the breakfeast is one of the simpliest we had in Italy.
My advice : you can find cheaper hotel in this category in Florence, closer to the historical center, with private parking for around 20€/day. It will be better than the "free" parking of Golf hotel.
