The hotel is basic but clean and convenient to the train station. It’s on a busy street, but the windows are well insulated and traffic noise is minimal. It appears to cater to bus tour groups. There is no concierge and very limited staff. The front desk staff was very young and had no information about area restaurants or public transportation options. The breakfast was fine and the staff in that area worked very hard. Not a good choice of accommodation if you are looking for any insights or ideas or recommendations about Florence. 30-45 minute walk to historic center of town.

Hotel's Favorite
We were very pleased with our stay in this hotel. The check in and check out was very smooth. The people are super friendly and nice. The room that we got into had a smoke smell, so we called the reception and ask for another we room. They provided us with another room very fast. The rooms are modern, very clean, spacious. They have everything you need. The gym was small , but ok.

I have stayed in 4 & 5 star hotels across Europe and the USA and this was the poorest hotel I have ever experienced for one simple reason....... there was no concept of customer service and their breakfast service in particular was the worst I have ever experienced. On day one my wife complained that the scrambled eggs were cold...she was contradicted. On day two the same...similar response. When she asked for an omelette instead she was told she would have to pay extra! They served the same poor breakfast every day of the week. I even believe that the same food was reproduced daily. I noticed most guests avoided the "hot" buffet entirely after day 1. The bar service was also terrible. Not because the young bartender was poor but he was run off his feet with room service and on several evenings we and some fellow guests gave up after waiting for 15/20 minutes for service. When we asked the two guys tending the reception they said he would come soon. Neither felt it was their job to serve us. They stood there chatting. Unbelievable! Additionally, my wife is diabetic and her drink of choice is Gin and Toni Zero by necessity. Never was there slimline tonic available. Her second choice was Pinot Grigio...there for the first night night but not any other night....the choice was between two other white wines only ....all week. There was no draught beer available either. For a hotel which was asking 450 euro per night for bed & breakfast this was very poor service indeed. The worst I have ever experienced. To be fair the hotel was quiet, clean and comfortable although the "Junior Suite " was no more than a slightly larger double room with a couch added in. It did not face the TV and there was no table and chairs as I have experienced in any other suite I have stayed in. Although the hotel shows images of a tall front facade with large windows, our "suite" only had a view over a back alley and the hotel Air-conditioning unit. Yet another disappointment. In fairness the hotel was clean, quiet and fairly well located. I paid 57 euro for a taxi in from the airport only to discover that I could have simply paid 3 euro to arrive 100metres away by tram. Thanks Booking.com.... NOT

Response from Michelangelo Firenze, General Manager at Starhotels Michelangelo
Responded 1 week ago
Dear Guest, thank you for sharing your experience by us and we are glad to understand that you appreciated the cleanliness and the atmosphere of the hotel. At the same time we regret to learn that some other aspects of our hospitality did not completely meet your expectations and we desire to express our apologies for this. Regarding F&B service, we have immediately contacted our F&B Manager to better understand the matters you refer and bring the corrective acts. Our buffet breakfast is composed of a wide range of Italian specialties carefully selected, daily prepared and express cooked. What is not included on the regular buffet, it can be ordered as extra from our Breakfast Menu. Regarding Pinot Grigio wine at the bar, we are really sorry that it wasn’t temporary at disposal, but valid alternatives of white wines are always available. We sincerely hope you can change your opinion and in case you decide to come back to us in the next future, please contact us directly and we will do our best to organize a memorable stay in Florence. Kind regards, Laura Marina Rodio - General Manager

I stayed in this hotel two nights from 17 -19 June 2022 and paid € 1,288.60, very expensive rate for a suite. I thought, with such a high rate hotel will provide me excellent quality not only for the room but also other services. However, it wasn’t the case. Room had mosquitos – my sleep was disturbed – a photo with mosquito is attached. Breakfast was basic (at extra cost on top of the room rate), comparatively not at par with the variety and quality received in a hotel at less than half of the room rate at Mestre (to visit Venice) in the same week. And therefore, I would say that staying in this hotel at the rate € 1,288.60 paid by me for 2 nights does not provide value for money. All other things were reasonably good. Hotel was clean, staffs were cooperative and the location is good to visit tourist attractions in Florence.

When we spontaneously went to Florence, we called the hotel on the way (in the night 02:00). They wanted to book us only 1 night at the beginning, because they could not see if there are still places the next day. The reception was absolutely unfriendly, received us with a haughty arrogance, as if we were completely out of place. I then left the car, on the instructions of the reception, in their parking lot in front of the hotel, which is only for unloading. In the morning at the reception I asked if it was ok that the car was there. The answer: no, is absolutely not ok. We did you a favor anyway, that you can leave it there overnight (but these smarties have 6 parking spaces for over 120 rooms). Very very smart. After a quick call, with the garage Leopold (with which the hotel works), I was able to park it there for 25€ the night. The room was extremely small. For 2 people it had only 1 towel (the hotel does not only save on parking spaces). So all in all: bad and not recommended.

They cancelled my booking one day before arrival. They are using the argument, that my credit card was not valid. However, it works fine for my other seven bookings. Magically, they sold out 15 minutes after they cancelled my booking without any notice. I booked early in spring to a much lower price, so it is not difficult to imagine that they simply used a declined credit card as a bad excuse for cancelling a lower priced booking. So be careful to book this hotel in advance - they are simply a scam! Luckily, I found another hotel that thinks my credit card is all fine...

Dear Guest, we thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback, giving us the chance to reply to you. Before cancelling a reservation we always try the credit card given as guarantee and advise guest requesting a new one when the pre-authorisation doesn't go through. Without an update, reservation is so cancelled. We really hope that you can reconsider your position, Kind regards Laura Marina Rodio - General Manager

Reception staff should have a better understanding of customer service. The rooms were well maintained from a cleaning perspective. Constantly asked for another robe and milk for our room. Breakfast included within the booking. This was poor and the hot food was not at all great. The food was the same each day, no change with anything. Coffee was unacceptable, served with long life milk. Did not eat in the restaurant, based on previous reviews

Stayed here for 5 nights and could have done more, Rome is such a magical place and the hotel was wonderful in all and every way. It was a very short maybe 5 min walk to the square of St. Peters so excellent location, reservation had breakfast included and it was very filling and options and varieties. All around amazon.

Our hotel room was very small, which has nothing to do with the service. It’s just big enough for two people. The bathroom; however, is big enough for 1 average size person. If you’re on the husky side, you’re not fitting between the shower doors. No shower for you. The shower water would alternate between being warm and cold. So you had to set the temperature that would not scald you when it was warm or freeze when it was cold. Our room included a free American breakfast buffet that featured scrambled eggs, pancetta, and beans. There are other buffet items including a salad, bread items, and fruit. While it was free, it was the same food every day. Front desk staff was great. They spoke good English. Bar staff was almost non-existent so getting a drink in the bar was hit or miss. Hotel is close to a tram and bus stops, but is a long walk to town. Maybe having a small room was the luck of the draw and there are better rooms in the hotel. For us the hotel room was serviceable, but there are probably better options.
