The hotel was done up quite beautifully to mimic ancient Rome, with sculptures and high ceilings and ornate decorative features. Our room had a giant bathroom with two stone pillars. They do not have room safes so you must store your valuables at the front desk. Breakfast was above average, with a hot chocolate machine. Overall quite a positive experience... More

On holiday from Australia, we had booked a room after finding Hotel City on Trip Advisor. Its location is just excellent. It is so close to the railway station that we walked when we arrived. It is just a brief walk from many fine restaurants and cafes, as well as many of the tourist things to do and see. Our... More

The breakfast could match that of any hotel, with a huge selection and the offer of making any kind of eggs desired. The staff is professional and friendly, and the location is two blocks from the...

Walk outside your door, and you have all sorts of restaurants, street vendors, stores, all the important Florence attractions are very close. Just 5-10 minute walk from the train station makes it especially convenient. Staff is quirky, but competent and professional.

We chose this as our base in Florence for 10 nights, as that is considered a long stay here, and did not want any irritations. We were not disappointed. The location is absolutely ideal, close to all the sights/museums etc but in a quiet street about 2minutes walk from the train station. Our room, number 31 was spacious (almost a... More
