Stayed at room 101 for 3 nights on Aug 2-5. It is not appropriate to compare its front, hallway or size to Marriot or Ritz as some reviews did, please do not make such comparison. However, it is so enjoy every moment there. Room 101 is very reasonable size and good enough for 2 adults and 2 teens. Except some kitchen smell on the 1st entering, generally beds and newly remodeled bathroom are very clean. It was hot and humid with 101-104 degree when we were there, but the AC for both rooms are powerful and able cool us down shortly after entering the room from super hot outside. Nearby there are couple of hotels with comparable size, such as Hotel City and Hotel S.Giorgio. Globus rate was slightly cheaper when we made reservation and has better value on cost, with breakfast included. The hotel is very close to Firenze Central train station which is essential for you to go to Pisa. After climbing Leaning Tower and walked a whole day at 102 degree in Pisa, you may just have energy to walk from station to Globus (< 5 min walk); also it is close to bus terminal which is recommended on the web for the trip to Siena. Globus perfectly fits our needs because we planned to visit both Pisa and Siena. Because we planned to take a train to Paris, so we did not bring a lot of T-shirts and US currency, but there is nothing to worry about at Globus, near by there is an Express Wash and a Bancomat ATM. Express Wash has detergent and softener, so just bring your dirties and let new laundry and dryer clean that for you. Also please do not bring hundred thousands US dollars there, simply bring your card (as long as card provider does not charge you transaction fee) and you will have trouble free (without pay 2-3% currency exchange commissions). All attractions in Florence are within walking distance from Globus. There are many restaurants outside of Globus on Via Faenza (Globus is at corner of Faenza street and Sant Antoniono Street), including Chinese (Spicy Chongqing and non-spicy Cantonese style), Italian pizza (Nerone) and others. Globus also has "Happy Hour" starting from 6:30 (till 7:30?), you can drink wine, orange juice or Champagne as much as you can at no charge. Lastly I have to appreciate the Globus staff for their professionalism. We planned this Italy-Paris trip since February, but we never thought that we will board on the train at Campo di Marte Station. Ms Sarah, the Globus staff first pointed out that we might be wrong, and further helped us with great patience on different route from Firenze Central to Marte. She printed different schedules over and again to fit our need. Of course, we did not miss our train and we were in Paris on August the 6th.
