“Good value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2014

The hotel is located near the motorway, so it is convinient if you need a hotel to stay in for a night or two. To see the center of the city, you have to take a bus, the bus station is only few minutes away. The neighbourhood is not so pleasant, but that's not a problem for a shorter stay.
The hotel staff is very very kind and gives you all the information you need and more.
Room has been clean and confortable, with wi-fi and tea/coffee making facilities. There was a nice selection of food for breakfast. The hotel offers free parking, which is great. The only thing is that the hotel might not be for those with light sleep as the walls are quite thin. Otherwise, we were very satisfied and would recommend the hotel to others, especially for a shorter stay.

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper, ask for a room, that could be more quiet, since walls are quite thin.

The best part about my stay was the staff and the HUGE terrace! The room itself was very cigarette smelling, small, and I did have a few of those large yellow ants mentioned by others. But the staff and location were great for what I needed. If you're staying here mostly to sleep before a flight, go for it. If you are thinking of basing your Florence trip out of here, move along

Close to Autostrada and Airport, in hotel you can buy bus tickets and get all the necessary tips for moving around the city.Free car parking. Clean room and bathroom , we found even a device against mosquitoes . Very large balcony. Breakfast simple but good enough to stand the day. Friendly and very helpfull staff.

Close to airport and helpful english speaking staff. Early flight out of Florence had me book this room in order to be at the airport at 4:30 a.m. Wake up call and taxi ordered as requested. Airport is 4-5 mins by taxi.

Hotel Franchi is an ideal, budget-conscious place to stay in Florence. a 3 minute ($15 Euro) cab from the airport; a clean and well-appointed room (where I slept for 11 solid hours and overcame jet lag); and a 10-15 minute (1.5 Euro) bus ride to the heart of the city. Ask the front desk for bus tickets--and for maps, and information of all kinds. My new BFF Zinit is among the most energetic, knowledgeable, helpful and, well, delightful front desk people I have ever met in 45 years of business and personal travel. Hotel Franchi got my three-week trip to Italy off to the perfect start.

The hotel is conveniently located near Florence airport and especially indicated if you have to catch an early morning flight. The staff is competent and friendly. The hotel is clean with very good free wifi. The downside, at least for my room, was the bed pillow which was very thin and floppy... really unconfortable to sleep with.
