“Excellent location with poor toilet”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2014

It's just 2 mins walk from train station and lots of cafes downstairs. I don't mind there was not lift in the hotel but I do mind on the tiny toilet which made us lots of fraustration for every shower.
Room is big with a tiny toilet and furniture are kind of old. Don't understand how come it rates 3 stars but to be fair, the staff are very helpful and friendly there.

Room Tip: If you carry a big suitcase, better don't stay here and don't ask for the room at 1st floor...

My wife and I have just returned from a fabulous stay at the Hotel Lombardia in fabulous Firenze. Very friendly staff from the moment you arrive to the moment you leave. We were on the third floor in a nice sized room with a fabulous bathroom ;) Lovely shower, and free mini bar, topped up every day. On leaving we were given a gift as a thank you for staying - a real surprise. My wife and I would never stay anywhere else.

It was actually the best hotel that we had in Italy. Stayed two nights in a superior room which was enormous! All furnishings were so comfortable and room was renovated. Everything were fresh and clean. There was a kettle in the room (which was rare in Italian hotels).

The location was just fantastic. The hotel was located only about 5-10 minutes walk from the train station and was quite easy to find. It was also only about 3 minutes walk to the Duomo. We arrived early in the morning, dropped luggage off and was able to get to the Duomo nice and early to avoid the crowds.

The lady at the front desk was very friendly and helpful in giving directions. Made us felt very welcome.

The only thing would be that our room was on the 4th floor and there was no elevators. The hotel staff helped to move our luggage so that was no issue. But if you have bad knees then might want to request for the first floor.

Breakfast was average tho~

Overall I found this hotel to be of very good value and had a very enjoyable stay :)

I selected this hotel as a quick sleepover choice. It was a good choice. Really close to the train station and the additional plus is that it is close to so many city attractions too! It is walking distance to the Duomo, shopping SMN, restaurants etc. The hotel gave me a warm welcome and helped me with my luggage as it did not have an elevator. The room was very basic but clean and functional. Given the price it was certain value for money.

We were booked to stay here on Sat 5th April, however due to a major plumbing problem we were unable to stay in our room. We can however comment on the excellent service at Lombardia. Upon arrival the friendly host Adrea was very apologetic for the inconvenience and had arranged an alternative hotel which was a very good replacement - Palazzo Guicciardini- on the other side of the river. He even minded our luggage for us whilst we took a trip to Pisa, then paid for our taxi transfer across to the alternate accommodation.

Very nice and helpful staff. Very good location also.
The rooms are confortable and pretty large. The shower is not well delimited and the water is getting all over the bathroom but that might be the case only for the economy double rooms

The hotel is closest to station so thats a super convenience. The rooms are small but well facilitated. Quite clean. Bathroom not bad. But there's no view out of the window. And the breakfast really needs variety. For warm items, there are only boiled eggs, that too get over fast!!!! and they are not replenished. Cute place run by a couple.
