“Super cute hotel with a great location!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

I loved my stay @ fiorita. The location is fabulous - just a 5 min walk from the train station and a 10 min walk from the city centre. But that's the only reason to love this hotel. The service is top notch, rooms are very pretty (pink curtains ans lacy beds!) and well maintained and the breakfast spread is amongst the best you'll get in Italy. My husband and I loved our stay here and would recommend this place to all. You won't regret booking into fiorita at all!

The location is perfect for independent tourists: in the Old City, 2 minutes to SMN railway station, shuttle bus to/from the airport, city buses. Also 2 minutes to basilika Santa Maria Novella, tourist information center, 10 minutes to Duomo on foot. Supermarket, pasticcerias-rosticcerias-cafes are near. Great (for tourist) substantial breakfast: good coffee, different kinds of tea, scrambled eggs, sausages, cheese, meats, yogurt, cornflakes, yummy pastry. Great camomilla tea was very helpful. Tea/coffee/"sweet little things" corner available 24 hours makes an almost domestic atmosphere. Very friendly mostly english-speaking stuff, always ready to answer any your questions, ready to help. Breakfast is laid on a nice terrace somewhere high and where you can enjoy morning view of the city. The room was small but cleaned every day an has got everything you need, only an extra socket would be also useful. "Warm floor" was very useful in December. Bathroom functional and clean and not too little, towels changed every day (one little problem was water in the sink which stayed for some time). Also the room heating was turned off in the night and during the day, this makes the room temperature not warm enough in December even in Florence.
All the same, I enjoyed my staying at Fiorita and woud like to book this hotel again. Thanks a lot:)

Room Tip: My room had a window into the internal very small yard whithout any sun or noise (which can be good...

Very nice…very roomy for Italy; wrap-around deck with views of the Duomo; elevator; two of the three desk clerks were helpful. Great breakfast with lots of choices for coffee, pastries, hard boiled eggs, fresh fruit, yogurt, meats and cheeses plus hot scrambled eggs with “sausage,” which tasted like hot dogs. Lady who ran it, Manuela, was excellent, but a bit shy; obviously few people thanked her, so when I made a point to thank her every morning, she beamed. Internet access was free, but each time you tried to get on, you had to enter a 13-character password. Lots of storage in the room; a small, common area available 24 hours for self-serve coffee and tea.

I selected this hotel for its location, and I made the right choice: it is on easy walking distance from SMN train station, and you walk right into the heart of Florence and to the Duomo. The area has good street lighting and feels completely safe. The hotel is located on the third floor of one of the historical buildings in central Florence, so straircases are small and sometimes you have to carry your luggage up some steps (but there is an elevator to the reception on the third floor and the staff was very helpful, too). My room was small but had everything I needed, and is clean. The bed was good and clean. The bathroom was functional and clean, hot water no problem. The breakfast was perfect, with lots of choice (not only Italian sweet pasties) and with a great coffee machine. No noise from other hotel guests or from the street. Wifi available. A kitchen area with juice and pastries for free and where you can make your own snacks, and where you can make your own coffee or tea whenever you want. I will look no further but book this hotel again for my next trip to Florence. Roberto at the reception was very welcoming and service-minded, which often makes the biggest difference in overlall judgement of your stay. Thank you!

My friend and I enjoyed a 2 night stay here in October and we found it to be very good value for money. It is extremely close to S.M.N train station and close to all the shopping and sites that Florence has to offer. It has a lift. The staff were friendly. The breakfast room has lovely views. Our bedroom was of a large size and thankfully they took note of our request for twin beds. The only downfall was the bathroom which turns into a wet room after a shower, so can be very slippery. We(and everyone else) had problems with the internet which has to be paid for,but we were not charged for this error!!

Dear Guest,

thank you for your nice review.
Our Hotel is actually really close to SMN station, so very convenient for people travelling by train, and a step away from the down town, so very easy to walk around without taking any bus..... thank you also for mentioning our breakfast room with view over the city and the size of our classic room.
About the Wi-fi, we have already changed the signal repeater which caused the problem you mention for just one evening in a wing of the Hotel where also your room was located: the wi-fi is now perfecty working !

Also, we remind the TA community that wi-fi is free and unlimited for all reservations coming through our official site, so do not miss this occasion !

Thank you for your stay at the "Fiorita", we hope to see you again.
