“Nice place to stay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

This hotel is a little south of Florence but close enough to take a bus to the center of Florence. The bus ride was 1.20 Euros and took about 30 minutes, The trick is getting from the bus stop back to the hotel safely. You can see the hotel but getting there requires crossing a busy road. and walking along another busy road back to the hotel. Like most European hotel the rooms a smaller than in the US and the amenities fewer. However the staff was friendly and helpful. Since this was a hotel used by many tour groups it was very busy and catching the elevator was a problem many times. The rooms are nice and the beds are comfortable. The bathroom was one of the better ones on our trip. The food was OK. Internet access was expensive 12 Euros for 24 hours.

Room Tip: most hotels in Europe do not provide items like Kleenex so bring your own pocket size packs. Intern...

We were expecting more from a Sheraton, the service is horrible, no wifi, not even a business center. the hotel is huge but they only have two computers for the whole hotel. We visit Florence in July it was hot, this hotel has a huge swimming pool, but guess what it was empty, no water unbelievable and when we asked the staff just don't care. Sheraton really must look for this property because it doesn't stand up for Sheratons standards, We really were expecting much more from this location. The breakfast buffet was mediocre and none variety

Room Tip: Needs renovation and look for Sheraton policies and standards. This place shouldn't be a Sherato...

Having just travelled around Europe and Scandinavia this has to be the poorest hotel I have ever stayed in. The hotel is dark and the dinning room that we got our breakfast, well it was the pits. The so called hot food was cold, with a poor selection. The bedroom was fair to good. This hotel is badly in need of a do up.

The hotel is conveniently located- abstains just 6 kilometers from the most popular sightseeings in Florence. The facilities are simply superb as the rooms are spacious and well appointed. The morning buffet boasts a wide variety of absolutely delicious food to suit everyone's palate. The choice of drinks are quite satisfactory and the cost overall- reasonable.
The guests' needs are catered for 24 hours basis as the room service appears to be around the clock. Highly recommend it!

The hotel deserves better reviews than the ones in tripadvisor. Rooms are spacious and clean. Staff is excellent at all levels. They are really friendly and welcoming. Nice location even if out of town. Nice views. Good food.
The disadvantage is that the pool was closed in the middle of August for unknown reasons.
The hotel needs renovation and new look but for the given price it is still ok.

We stayed a night at the Sheraton Firenze as part of a tour. The hotel is about 20 minutes drive from the city centre. The building would've been a top hotel when it was built with spacious lobby and hallways. It's showing its age now but still in good condition.

The room was spacious too and mine had a great view overlooking green hills. There's a fridge with complimentary bottled water. The dinner was served in silver service style where foods are placed on your plate at the table.

Overall I had a comfortable stay here.

We recently stayed at this apparent 4 star hotel with Globus tours for one night with our tour group.

Where do we start, how about the good things?
We survived two nights.

Now the areas that need improvement... and often significant improvements!!
1) Having water in the pool would be nice.
2) Having no weeds growing around the pool with no water would also be nice.
3) Mowing the weeds off the tennis court to allow you to play tennis would be nice.
4) When cupboard in our room states 'bar', that a bar and a fridge should be behind the door, not just an EMPTY space.
5) Reception staff are unwilling to provide you with a double bed (as booked) and state that 2 single beds are equivalent... although separated.
6) The hallways are equivalent to a dimly lit airport runway that lead to bouts of depression.
7) Breakfast... very little to choose from.
8) Windows 1995 obviously is very slow, and they only have one PC... this led to significant queues.
9) Location was terrible, too far away from town... unless you like looking at freeways.

In summary, the professional hotel rater rating this hotel probably did this by looking at the original plans (possibly not even on site) and not based from any recent experiences at this hotel.
