We really enjoyed our stay at Hotel Sempione. One reason we chose the hotel other than the good reviews, is its close proximity to the railway station. It's a short walk to the hotel, and we initially headed off in the wrong direction - just make sure you research the location, We stayed in a room on the third floor... More

Everything in this hotel was just ok. Bathroom was small but everything was in working conditions. Room was small but they did clean it everyday so no complaints there either. Breakfast was just sufficient and the hotel is really close to rail station. But the wifi was TERRIBLE, I simply can't apprehend the fact that in this day wife is... More

This hotel is close to train and bus station and easy walking distance from all the sites in Florence. The staff were really friendly and helpful even providing us with umbrellas when we were leaving for dinner on a rainy night without us even asking. It is a small hotel, room was small but clean and comfortable, nice size bathroom.... More

Very close to the main train station.(5 min walk) very close to the Basilica Santa Maria Novella . This is the place where you can start your tour. The places are so close to each other, a map given by the hotel would work to create your own destination. As we had a short time we hired a touristic mini... More

The room was humble, nice local view and all necessities. The staff all we're very helpful and kind. Great location and staff gave great recommendations of food and drinking locations that suited our requests. For the price, it was great value. 353 euro for 2 people, 3 nights. Bravo!

Good service here and a great location. Very central only minutes from the station and main attractions. The room was small but clean and the shower was very small. Wifi was not great but good. Dropped out a bit more than I would like but was ok. Would stay here agin because of the service and location for sure.

We stayed in room 402. The room was a decent size. The bathroom was the standard Italian bathroom. Our room had the view of the Duomo which was fantastic. The room was very hot. The air con while blowing cold air just didn't cool the room down. We had it on 24/7 to be somewhat comfortable when sleeping. The hotel... More

Great location close to the train station, many restaurants and sights in Florence. The view of the Duomo from the room was a nice surprise. The room was small, but clean and the bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was great.

I wanted to review this hotel 'good' but it doesn't have that option. I stayed in room 114, which was very quite and had good wifi reception. My room was clean, although some of the furniture was a bit dated. The breakfast was good also, they offered a range of different things - pastries, toast, cereal, juice, tea/coffee, yoghurt, meats/cheeses... More
