Friendly place full of character. Excellent location, walking distance from station and only two minutes stroll to the Florence old town. Had a great 3 night stay in Florence, I highly recommend this hotel, even though rooms are small. Breakfasts are limited in choice compared with large hotels but still worth the money.

My wife and I just finished two nights at this hotel. It was very charming especially the lobby, sitting and dining area. The breakfast was good and the rooms were spacious especially the shower which is a rare feature in Italy and our room even had a walk in closet. The front desk staff was very polite and spoke English... More

What a gem of a hotel! Mario's is close to many of the key attractions and round the corner from Santa Maria Novella (central station), making it an ideal base to explore both Florence and other places in Tuscany. The staff are polite and friendly and go out of their way to provide extra information and helpful advice. Our room... More

This B&B is located very close to the train station which is its biggest USP. The staff are quite nice too & helped out streamlining my sightseeing plans. The breakfast was decent enough. However the room I was put up in was quite small. Just a bed. My shower was out of the room but private - no regrets here... More

Our stay was great! It came in handy to have the hotel near the train station and the city center in a nice area. The best part was definitely having Leo give us dining recommendations. We absolutely loved Carmine and we wouldn't have had the most delicious pasta if it wasn't for Leo. So thank you!! If I had to... More

Excellent location beside the attractions and the rest is fine. Friendly stuff helped us and suggest nice places and activity to do. The Rooms are okay clean but, small not like the picture. Bathroom is modern and nice but very small Breakfast is fine but not a lot of variety

The staff were very helpful and accommodating during our visit and they made sure we felt welcome. The hotel is in a central location so it's easy to get around. The staff are very polite and friendly. The negatives would be: 1. The room felt unclean, there were squashed bugs on the walls and the bathroom and bedroom were not... More

We were really happy with our stay at Hotel Mario's. The prices were very reasonable. It was in a great location in Florence, close to many tourist attractions, the train station and on a quiet street with great restaurants nearby. The hotel itself was so pretty inside. The room and ensuite were spacious and spotlessly clean. The staff were so... More

With an excellent location and breakfast, Hotel Mario's was perfect for our 3 day stay in Florence. The hotel staff is incredibly helpful, whether that be making you a coffee, suggesting restaurants, or booking tours for you. The rooms were spacious, clean, and had quick wifi and cool air conditioning.
