We found this hotel with a help of TripAdvisor. It was late, we were tired, our BIG mistake was to go to Florence by the car. Never do this :) Tried several hotels in a range of 2 miles city center. This one was the best: friendly staff, clean, comfortable rooms, really good prices. If i will come to Florence... More

Truly. Every time we opened the one armoire in the room, one or two moths flew out. At least my kids sort of enjoyed chasing them down. I just hoped we wouldn't bring any home with us. Although a good location, close to the train station and the fantastic Mercato Centrale, it was almost impossible to find. In part that's... More

Our travel agent recommended this for us. Our room was small, so small one cannot sit at the desk while another walks between the person at the desk and the bed. The bathroom has no counter space. Wifi is free, but it can come and go. The beds are comfortable. The fridge is small and keeps things cool, not cold.... More

Very friendly staff who are always willing to help with any information we needed. They were always willing to supply us with what we needed! Even some tea at night! This hotel is walking distance from the train station and from the central markets and museums. A great little hotel!

I chose this hotel because of its location near the train station. The hotel had cute rustic charm. Being in the heart of the city it wasn't really very peaceful but didn't made a big difference. After sightseeing for the entire day I anyway slept like a log. Room was clean.

2 nights at The Galileo Hotel. Our room was quite large and airy and the decor was cute. Upon checking in we were given discount vouchers to 2 restaurants in the area. We went to both over our 2 nights there and found them both to be great recommendations. The shower was a little difficult as it was hand-held and... More

This hotel is in a great spot. It's close to markets 3 minutes away, the academia gallery and duomo are also close by and if don't mind about a little extra walking only 10/15 minutes away from the main shopping streets. Also close is a supermarket, laundromat, lots of restaurants and buses and trains. Although it is quite and older... More

Well located near train station and car parking. This hotel had smallish rooms, bed was Ok, bathroom in need of a refit, silicon repairs all over. Double glazed windows overlooking street OK to reduce noise while the air con was working. Florence doesn,t appear to sleep. Breakfast basic continental with adequate choice , not much room to move when busy.Easy... More

We chose this hotel because of its location near the train station. Room was nice & very clean. Although it looked out onto the main road it was fine because we are sound sleepers. Also there were double windows for soundproofing I guess. The breakfast was a good spread. I will most definitely consider staying here again
