We chose the hotel for the location - walk distance to Santa Maria del Fiore - and the swimmingpool. However, we were very surprised by the additional fees for almost everthing: parking, access to the pool, wifi etc. - read carefully before booking! In addition, the staff at the reception was very rude and condescending, even a bit hostile, making... More

Stayed for four nights for the Italian MotoGp at Mugello. Hotel was comfortable and clean and the location was pretty good. Staff were excellent, helpful and knowledgable. Breakfast was good. No problems with the room except that air con wasnt working. Good bathroom and shower and adequate hot water. This may be one of the only hotels in Florence with... More

This was one of the worst hotels I have ever stayed in. I traveled to Florence over spring break with a school group, and the tour company we were with had booked this hotel for us. When I first got to the hotel, it seemed nice from the inside, as it had nice-looking lobby and breakfast hall. When I got... More

We originally booked a room at the Hotel Donatello for our family of four but due to septic issues in that hotel we were rerouted to Hotel Royal - a sister hotel. We were understanding about it and opened minded but extremely disappointed. The Hotel Royal looked beautiful on the outside and even in the main areas, but our actual... More

This charming old Tuscan villa is located very near to the heart of the city. The Duomo is 10 minutes on foot, the Arno river/Ponte Vecchio is around 15. The hotel's furniture contains antique pieces, the common are is really nice. Breakfast is served in the dining hall or outside in the lovely little garden (palm trees, flowers and some... More

Booked a single room which turned out to be like a prison cell with no carpet. The hotel only has internet in the lobby. No kettle no tea/coffee making. Staff indifferent. Grudgingly offered a double room for double the price but still no internet so would be throwing good money after bad. Attitude was what do you expect. This hotel... More

We stayed two nights and the gentleman at the desk was most accommodating. He outdid himself seeing the we had what we desired. The room was comfortable. The rate seemed appropriate. Although the hotel is a little longer to walk to, it is worth it!!

The staff is friendly as always in Toscana. However be careful, parking is 25€ a day. The rooms are not fantastic but clean. The location is okay, you would be 20 minutes from Duomo by walking. Internet won't be accessible in your room. Nothing very fancy but cheap for Firenze.
