“Great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

Great location, helpful staff, good value for money. Within walking distance to all the important sites. Although very central, no noise enter the rooms. Free Wi-Fi. Luggage is kept both for early arrivals and also for late departures.

This hotel has the perfect location. It is about a 5 minute walk from the train station, about a 10 minute walk to the Duomo, and about 15 minutes or so to the museums and the other plazas. The location would be really hard to beat. Our room was very tiny, but it was clean and nice. There is AC and a complimentary breakfast. There is not a whole lot to choose from for breakfast, but it gets the job done. The employees at the front desk were also friendly, they gave us maps and helped us plan some of our time. Great place to stay!

This Hotel adds to the experience of visiting Florence. It is a historic building with tiled floors and lots of authentic charm. Edi the receptionist, was particularly helpful to our family late one night and it was great fun exploring this wonderful city from this central position. It is not glamorous but it is clean, comfortable, owned by locals, part of Florence's history and genuine - which we much preferred to another chain hotel.

Great little hotel in probably the best location in Florence. It is 2 minutes walking distance from the train station down a nice little street that is quite, for just being right off the Main Street.

The hotel service is great. The two gentlemen at the desk were very good to work with and communicate with. The accommodated us with our early arrival and willing to hold our stuff after checking out.

The serve a free breakfast which is very convenient. It is small but gets you going for the morning.

Again, the location was perfect. We were one block from a small plaza where you can sit under awnings and drink wine. A short walk and you are at Piazza Duomo and right near the market (cool place to see). Not too much further you can walk past two larger plazas (Piazza della Repubblica and Palazzo Vecchio).

Hotel amen ditties were good. Private bathroom and bed for two were nice and clean. Bathroom was a little small but very typical of Europe. The beds were a little stif and the pillows were thin. I suggest asking for two pillows for enough support.

Good value for the money.

Stayed at this hotel for one night during our one week travel in Italy. Our priority was the location - we had to walk from the SMN Railway station to the hotel with many heavy bags and kid, so the hotel had to be within the walking distance from the SMN. For that purpose, this hotel is perfect. More than that, almost all the monuments are within walking distance from this hotel. But the rooms are pretty small and feel a bit congested. The reception on the first floor - so you will have to carry your luggage up the stairs. There is a lift from the 1st floor and above, but it takes extra ordinarily long time to reach each floor. Breakfast is average. It is not bad for the money, but I wish the rooms were a bit spacious.

The best asset is the localtion within walking distande from the main points and shopping areas.
Staff was really friendly, beds ok. A bit noisy, but not too bad (with earplugs), large room. Breakfast was included, it was average with juice, coffee and rolls. Extra plus for free wi-fi, and parking facilities.

We spent only one night Hotel Nizza at the beginning of a Tuscan bike trip. But, we were impressed with the beautiful historic building, clean rooms, great location, and wonderful breakfast. The hotel is located close to the train station in Florence. We arrived later in the evening; however, the hotel staff was welcoming and accommodating. They let us store our bikes in our room, made a fantastic dinner recommendation, and helped with other issues related to biking in Tuscany. Hotel Nizza was a fantastic first stop on what will be a memorable trip through central Italy.
