“Lovely hosts”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013

We stayed here for one night in October. Piero and Marcela were really helpful and excellent hosts...nothing too much trouble. Marcela gave us a map and told us where to visit. We could leave our bags forthe whole day we checked out if we wanted to. Location is really good....close to the station and near the centre. Only criticism was the breakfast but we knew it was only packaged cake beforehand.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

The owner is very nice and helpful and has great recommendations.
The location is not bad - 15 minutes walk from city center.
The rooms are clean and very big.
The breakfast is very basic and may not be enough, especially if you travel with kids (there is a supermarket nearby)

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

It was a central location and quite easy to find. The train and bus stations are close. and so is the shopping. You can walk to all the attractions. The rooms are very clean and neat no kettle provided you must use your microwave to heat your water for the coffee.I had a very nice room off a garden. There were 9 of us so we were split up into different hotels. The other family went across the road, which was ok but we were seperated.

Room Tip: If you are a family ask to be put in the same hotel.

I couldn't recommend Relais Florence Hotel more. Piero and Marcela are so friendly and welcoming, you feel as if you're staying with friends! They offer you everything you need along with superb recommendations for attractions and food - they can't do enough for you. Lovely clean rooms, great location and all for an unbeatable price. I really couldn't fault it.

Just spent 2 nights here. Found it easily from the train station. Great location, great price, great room, friendly staff and a clean and tidy room. Nice having a fridge and microwave. Highly recommended for great stay in Florence. Lots of places to eat nearby, and close to a lot of amazing sights. Can't wait to go back!

I stayed here this week. Friendly, helpful and genuine people. Lovely spacious room, clean and cared for. Far exceeded my expectations and I would go back in a flash. Just is missing a kettle and cups.
