We spent 3 nights on HH points in this hotel and left with many positive impressions.
First, be warned: the location is totally of the map; however, they offer a free shuttle service that is fairly convenient, if you don’t mind the 20 minutes ride to the train station. The bus stops on the right side of the station (as you leave the station via the main entrance) and last bus leaves the station at 22:30 (10:30 pm). The bus drivers as well as the hotel staff speak good English, are very friendly and helpful. The room is modern looking with interesting minimalistic design, resembling IKEA master plan. The bathroom has a similar feel. There is very little to do around the hotel. Across the street there is small pizzeria but was closed the whole time, maybe in vacation. A short walk past the hotel there is some kind of mall with a discount general store, movie theater and game arcades where lots of teenagers tend to congregate. In the basement of the hotel there is an indoor pool, workout room and ironing room. Also, the hotel advertises a spa; however, I saw only some type of massage table or tanning bed but appeared deserted the whole time we were there. One thing that aggravated me was the the wireless Internet vouchers. In most Europeans Hilton Hotels, HH members get a free Internet voucher with a password good for 24 hours. Hilton Florence Metropole has a slightly more complicated procedure: Every 24 hours you have to go to the reception and ask for a voucher; the person behind the desk, takes your info, enter it in the computer, prints 2 pieces of paper, one for you to sing/date and give back, the other to keep with instructions on how to create a username/password. This is a clean, functional business hotel and as long as you know that you should be able to have a nice time here.
