“Great location, friendly and helpful staff - very relaxing.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014

Only stayed here the one night - a dramatic change from the noise of Milan. The staff helped with our suit cases when arriving and when we left. We loved the ability to keep windows open without any noise from outside - oh, yes there was - the cooing pigeons on the outside roof. Lovely!!

Nice basic breakfast in the morning.

Only suggestion to the hotel would be to perhaps consider putting up a diagram on their webpage as to how to get to the hotel from train station as we did get lost initially. Once you have walked it once it is very easy - but coming out of the train station for the first time you are left wondering which direction you should head. The tourist office helped us out with a map and we were soon heading in the right direction.

Right from the time I walked in (after walking about 200 mts. from Firenze SMN station) things were nice and I was very much at ease.

The room was nice, even though in this specific case it was not en-suite. But the warmth and helpfulness of Francesca, Omar and Eduardo really made my 3nights stay a eally pleasant experience.

Great Value for money and very nice people!

Room Tip: Choose a room with an en-suite toilet. Everything else is near perfect

This hotel is very well located within close proximity to the Florence train station and about 10 minutes walk from the Duomo and within walking distance of most of Florence's attractions. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms are reasonable size. The breakfast is a typical Italian breakfast with a choice of cornettos, cheeses, ham and yogurt with good Italian coffee. Would definitely stay here again. Also recommend the little bar just next door for a cheap panino :)

You can't go wrong. If staying in a clean, friendly and convenient hotel with a wonderful Tuscan style of architecture accessorized with tasteful artwork; then you've found it at Mario's Hotel. A family run business with a back home style friendliness is what to expect from the minute you come through the reception door.

Room Tip: The double pane windows with stain glass keep noise out in each and every room. Each room has an uni...

Beautiful and comfortable rooms with wonderful service. They could not help us enough and always up for a pleasant chat. Walking distance to everything, most convenient the train station! My husband and I had a very enjoyable stay!

I was travelling with my husband and in-laws. The welcome we received was fantastic. I was lucky enough to have a room with a bath rather than a shower which was a real treat. The rooms had tea and coffee facilities which was an added bonus. The only down side for us was the lack of choice at breakfast. My mother in law is diabetic and has other dietry issues. We don't usually have a problem so had not thought to advise the hotel of any special needs. We did ret a great reccommendation for dinner, and will cetainly book again if travelling in Florence.

Omar, Eduardo, and Leonardo made our stay warm and welcoming. They even chilled the bottle of wine we had been carting all over Italy. And their recommendations about dining couldn't have suited us better. The room was large and the bed the most comfortable we had during our 12-day whirlwind tour of Northern Italy. Thanks for a great time. And, oh, yes. When we had to get up at 4 in the morning to leave for the airport, Omar had already brewed some coffee and brought out croissants and bread. They're the best!
