The hotel as such was OK, very conveniently located. Room was fine. The breakfast was one of the worst I have ever seen. The service personell, incuding the ladies at the reception, ignored me several times and chose to continue chatting among themselves instead of attending me.

Dear Guest, we have to say thank you for your comment and we are sorry about your negative stay in Grand Hotel Mediterraneo. We understand you have not appreciated our breakfast. The hotel breakfast is continental with all types of food and generally nobody has complained about this. Could you tell us what you want to say with "terrible" ?... More

The hotel is large, with a lobby similar to a Hilton, Marriott, Sheraton. Our room was great, a large split level room (that was a treat) with a clean modern decor. The bathroom, again large with a wonderful shower. Staff were very polite and helpful. A plus if you are a Rotarian, the club meets there on Thursday.

To sum up our disappointing stay at this hotel - the room we booked was supposed to be non-smoking but it reeked of smoke. We asked to change rooms - which the hotel did, but very reluctantly. The rooms were small and shabby. When the room above us flushed their toilet, it sounded like it was over your head. The... More

We stayed in this hotel as a part of a group tour and were there on New Years Eve. The rooms were very small, which is ok; but the cleanliness was horrible. The towels and linens were dirty, the toilets (in numerous rooms and in the lobby area) did not flush and the floors were not clean. We ate in... More

This hotel is about 15 minutes walk from the centre of Florence and is a stone's throw from the River Arno. My wife and I were very happy with our room. I don't get hung up on size and for me hotel rooms are for sleeping, so as long as the room is clean and in good shape then I'm... More

This is a favorite with the bus tours. The lobby and dining area were quite nice..however, if you are part of a tour (like we were), your rooms are in an annex, not part of the primary building. These rooms are very dated...late 70's decor...with paper-thin walls. We were on the fifth floor and opened the windows to get some... More

Hotel is located within walking distance to main square. Close to many restaurants and shops. Rooms are small, especially the bathroom. Shower is even smaller than one you find in a cruise cabin. Might be uncomfortable for a large person. Hotel caters to large tour groups so tends to be noisy at times.

I stayed in this hotel as part of Gate 1's Enchanting Italy tour in October 2010. The hotel is quite large and modern. Our room was of average European hotel room size. The bathroom was clean, but tiny. The shower was functional, but tricky to get in/out of due to the toilet placement, and had limited space for toiletries. Very... More

Mediterraneo is a very modern hotel in Florence, The room we stay in was small (typical of rooms in europe but was nice and clean. The staff was very helpful and nice. We did alot of walking and major sites, were about a 15 min walk away. Also the bus stop was right behind the hotel, which was nice also.

The Grand Mediterraneo must have been quite the hotel - 30 years ago! While the lobby area still retains the vestiges of better days, our room seem mired in the past. The decor was old and worn, and none of the available electrical outlets worked. The only way we could charge our electronic items was to unplug the TV and... More
