Florence is such a beautiful city, rich with history....but you probably don't want your hotel room to look like it's decor hasn't changed in the last 100 years.
Incredibly outdated, and pretty dirty make this hotel a no go.
Not to mention the shower flooded...More
Super budget hotel. Can't decide if it's worth 1 or 2 stars. Let start with the lobby, toilets didn't flush, upholstery on sofa's with cheap microfiber absorbing all the perspiration from the loads of visitors on a humid summer day. Extremely tiny elevator resulting in...More

Great hotel for a great value! Located close to the city centre and close to the railway station, also many restaurants, bars, shops nearby. Neat rooms, good service, breakfast, friendly and helpful staff! Loved staying there!
The Byron is very close to Santa Maria Novella station and is easy to find. We arrived there before 12 noon and were pleasantly surprised to get a room right away. The staff at the reception were not overly friendly, but the chack in was...More

Santa Maria Novella train station welcomes the majority of the people arriving in Florence, which might explain the hectic pace. Commuters and tourists come across the constant hustle and bustle of the station before exiting, taking a few steps and stopping amazed in Piazza di Santa Maria Novella. It is impossible not to admire the the square, housing one of the most charming basilicas in Florence. The
area has plenty of local spots to taste Tuscan specialties, but don’t stop in the main streets alone; the narrower side streets always ensure satisfaction. The huge Parco Delle Cascine provides a solution to the need for a green area as well as a historic welcome in the form of a bronze statue of King Vittorio Emanuele II riding a horse.
I am not a happy camper. We booked the Byron Hotel yesterday through AAA club which uses Travel Bound for its
Hotel selections. Thinking this was a site with up to date
Legitimate information we booked this two rooms for two
Nights for Sept 21--23. Within less than 24 hours we found information
On Tripadvisor that rated the hotel very poorly. We asked
AAA and Travel Bound to give us a credit for another hotel
On their site but they are REFUSING to give us a credit. The Travel bound site was not accurate...selling this Byron Hotel
As 3star when the reviews from other sites rated it much less
Not clean, bed mites, old and in dis-repair including an unfriendly staffs. HELP....we do not want to stay here.. . Travel
Bound says we cannot have a REFUND or a CREDIT for a reservation made less than 24 hours ago even though we brought
the discrepancy of information on there web site and others
To their attention. We want to select another hotel !!!

My wife and I booked the Bryon for 1 night only because it's within steps from the Florence bus station and it has a 3-star rating. We were very disappointed. Itstarted as we entered the elevator and looked at the dirty, old, worn & torn carpet. Then, when we reached our floor more of the same with the dirty carpet which continued into our tiny room and a very disappointing barhroom as I described in my TripAdvisor review. If you want to enjoy Florence in the comfort of a genuine 3-Star hotel (keep in mind the star ratings are very different from USA's star ratings - book elsewhere.
