“Perfect Location and Convenience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2014

It probably is the closest hotel that is to the Florence Main Terminal Station. So as soon as you are out of the station the first thing you probably see is either the Santa Maria Church or this hotel. It is at the most perfect location that everything is close by be it the restaurants, the train station, cafe's, tram station, main square or shopping areas. The hotel has more of a modern elegance than an cultural or artistic touch that Florence is famous for. The rooms are quite spacious compared to European standards and hotel staff very customer oriented. I would rate the breakfast in an Ok category than an exceptional grading. Overall this is a very good hotel so go ahead and try it out.

Central location. Close from every where. Nice staff. Clean and descent rooms. You can go every where by walking. Internet connection is really bad. Other than that everything was great. It's very close from Santa Maria church and the Doumo church and shopping area.

So far this hotel has been the best one I have stayed in, during my 6 week Europe trip.
Amazing views, large balcony, large bathrooms and extremely comfiest my room.
Breakfast is very tasty and a large variety.
Great and friendly service.
Clean rooms.
Will come back to this hotel next time I am in Florence and will recommend to friends to stay here.

We stayed in this hotel for two nights in July. We were travelling from Rome to Florence and were pretty tired of lugging luggage around by the time we got to Florence. Delighted to step out of the train station to look up and actually see the hotel directly in front of us. All of the main tourist attractions were a short walk away. Also the buses were just across from the hotel which was really helpful as on the first evening we wanted to go to Piazzale Michelangelo to see what was an amazing sunset panoramic view of Florence city.

The breakfast in the hotel was what you would expect from a continental breakfast. Our room had lovely air conditioning. The only negatives I had about the hotel was that outside our bedroom window was quite noisy at night but I guess that's what you would expect for a city centre hotel, and also the room they gave us was a type of apartment room that was difficult enough to find. You had to up one lift to go down a different lift.

Overall Florence was amazing and if you have little time there like we did I would highly recommend this hotel even if you are just basing it on location.

My daughter and I were with a tour that spent 2 nights in Florence. Very close to everything and the beds were the best but our room 138 was very noisy. I was woken up by a fight going on in the next room. Went down to complain to night manager and he made me feel like I was bothering him and he didn't believe the room I was complaining about was right next to ours. Exhausted the next morning I spoke with the morning crew who were very nice and apologized for my night. That night we slept better but you could hear everytime someone flushed a toilet or used the shower.

Good hotel, nicely furnished, very similar to an American hotel in terms of size and what you're going to find in it. Not exactly oozing with character, a fairly busy place that has lots of tour groups moving through, but the breakfast was good and pretty decent and the location was awesome. We ended up taking trains in and out of the city and it was super close to the train station. On the other hand, contrary to almost any other city in the world, it was also definitely NOT in a seedy part of town because of that fact, the restaurant scene right beside the hotel was actually awesome, and it was very very close to the duomo (we could see it from our room)" and everywhere you want to be as a tourist. Similarly, we spent our last night taking a five minute walk down to the river which was beautiful and trés romantic. We were in room 239. Good hotel, very clean, not a lot of character, free wifi, somewhat slow service but good enough, appropriate front desk staff, and wins out for a great location. I will note that we also stayed at hotel UNA Vittoria on the other night we were in Florence, and we personally liked that hotel much better since it's location was in a much more quaint, not tourist dominated, and truly beautiful part of the city. However, if the price is high there or you're not able to make it to that area for scheduling reasons, you're right beside transportation and tourism in a very reasonable hotel with the Ambasciatori, but don't expect the most romantic of locales.

Room Tip: Had room 239, which was nice, spacious, and very decent.

we stayed here for a few nights on our tuscany trip this summer. the hotel is located just a few steps away from the main train station making it ideally located for travelers getting off at the station and not having to waste money on cabs.

almost all the attractions are just about within waling distance from here in any direction. the room we got was an apartment in the new wing of the hotel. it was overlooking the santa maria novella church. however, getting to the room was a task in itself! climb up, then climb down, then climb up a floor, then down again and into a tiny passage where the room was.

that said, the room itself was quite comfortable and spacious. recommend staying here!

Room Tip: get a room in the new wing. the older rooms are not as good as the newer ones.
