“Quiet and convenient to airport”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2008

This hotel doesn't win praise for character. Look elsewhere for that. It worked for me because it was 5 minutes from the airport, had easy access to Florence via bus or car, provided a safe parking lot, had comfortable beds and was quiet.

  • Liked — convenient access to airport, Florence and day trips outside of Florence
  • Disliked — lacks personality

stayed at this hotel in june 2008 and it was one worst places
i have ever stayed. Rooms are cramped and dirty
i thought i was going to catch something bad here
staff are totally useless. don't expect any help from them.
if you want to enjoy your stay in florence pay a bit extra and go to
a better hotel. read about the hotel and resorts on trip advisor.

The stay in this hotel has been very unpleasant, apart from the dire conditions of cleaning and deterioration of it, the humane treatment by the receptionist was humiliating because we complaines about the worst conditions of our room ( insects, corporal spots, no water, when we went to breakfast in the spoon there was food of the dinner we ate last night...) With this comment we want to convey to those who read, which can be found if they choose services Auto Park Hotel.

I have just come back from a tour around Europe and this was the worst hotel I stayed in. There were bugs in the room and I had bites on me after staying there one night I ended up staying in another room which wasn't much better. I bathroom was filthy and the toilet was in the middle of the shower. I ended up putting one of the twoels on the floor and standing on it

I stayed here on a tour. That being said, we did not explore much of this hotel except our rooms and bathrooms. Stains on the bed, small bathroom with odd shower. It says there it is part of an old villa-- I did not know that at the time and would not have known it. Stay elsewhere.

We just arrived to Florence by train and had to pay 20 euros (taxi) to reach this ugly place, besides that no one knows about it. . The zero stars place is about 50 years old without any renovation. The front desk staff know about the conditions of the rooms, but will not tell you. We got a 3 bed room. First everything was old, smelly and dirty. Bed sheets where new at least. I hope we have not taken any fungi from the bathtub. We had reservations for 3 nights, that we immediatelly cancelled. The hotel in located in a residential area without any attraction. Even for one night is not acceptable, but we had to stay because the reservation policy. It tooked 30 minutes to go back to downtown using bus number 22. I will not even pay a penny for this place and cost us 137€ , about US$200 for this nasty experiece. DO NOT EVEN THINK ABOUT THIS PLACE, spend a little more and stay in another place. You will save in your health, vaction time, and enjoyment. If you are going to Florence, you have the money to stay in a good place. Do not be a cheapskate.

I recently came back from a 3 week tour of the Mediterranean and this was one stop on our tour I will not forget. I am not a picky person and when traveling Europe I expect no frills. However, this so called 3 star hotel should be avoided. The hotel is situated outside of the core of Florence in a remote neighbourhood. The hotel is gated by a 12 foot high fence with 4" spikes nestled on top. The shower consists of a nozzle, toilet, curtain and floor drain. There is no berm or physical wall to keep the shower water in the shower. After every shower the bathroom is flooded. This layout was consistent with all rooms in this hotel (as witnessed in other tour members rooms). And yes... I said toilet!! The toilet is literally in the shower and impossible to keep dry if showering.

The location is less than desirable, however a bus stop beside the hotel will take you into the core of Florence (until 11pm). The only positive was the grocery store beside the hotel, which is stocked with excellent wine, meats and cheeses. When taking into account the money spent on buses and taxis you would be better off staying closer to the downtown area in a more expensive hotel.
