We had previously stayed here in 2008 for 3 nights and liked the hotel and the location, so decided to return this year for another 3 nights. Unfortunately things are different now. I requested the same room, as it was large with a balcony. We were given that same room, but it now has rotting floorboards just outside the bathroom...

A real 'Gem', albeit my first review, but previous visits confirm it is a lovely Hotel, in a good central position for the City as a whole, the balance being the wonderful staff, with adequate 'Continental' breakfast and the delightful 'Maria' (And colleague) in the dining room. The reception and other staff are also worth a mention, as always very...

In the magic city of Florence Hotel Martelli is equally impressive, considering design and place. Great place, near railway station and near all the main sights of Florence. You can go everywhere by walking. Very small single room, difficult to move in it and even smaller shower. There isn't a shower cabin and this makes everything wet. You barely can...

Good central location, few minutes walk from airport bus which terminates by the main station. Reception staff were a tad grumpy. No receipt given for tourist tax, which had to be paid in cash. Being built around a courtyard the bedrooms are randomly scattered. Took us more than one go to find our room, easier using stairs than lifts! Room...

Every important place is so near so the location is perfect. The room wasn't the best, but it had a good atmosphere. Wifi was only available at the breakfast room, but we were lucky, because our room wasn't far from there (2016 february) We loved the hotel, it's like a labyrinth.

Stayed for 4 days with my friend. Perfect location..4 min walk from train station, 5 min walk from the farthest place u need to go. Didn't take a taxi or a bus cause there was no need to. Friendly staff, family business. The room was sufficient, we didn't stay in ot for long. Overall it was great.

Wonderfully helpful staff. Our stay included breakfast which was very good. The woman handling breakfast was extremely helpful and friendly. This property is very close to the train station and numerous restaurants.
