Hotel Globus was completely renovated in June 2016. The new reception area, located on the street level of Via Sant'Antonino, is now connected to all rooms thanks to our new elevator. The new breakfast area overlooks a small courtyard with a nice vertical garden. Our staff is a mixture of all ages, languages, cultures and countries, always smiling and willing to offer you tips on places to visit, restaurants to try. They're always there for you. For what regards our location, it is definitely one of the key features of Globus. The proximity to all the Santa Maria Novella train station and all main attractions, including the Duomo, both major museums (Uffizi and Accademia Galleries) or Ponte Vecchio, among others, makes it very easy to plan even the busiest day without the need to lose time getting from the hotel to your desired location. What makes our neighbourhood special though is definitely the Mercato Centrale, located just around the corner from here. In the morning, that is where you want to go if you're planning to buy some food to take back home, or simply want to try the famous Tuscan specialties, "trippa" and "lampredotto". Where this place shines though is the 1st floor, open from 10am until midnight. It's a big, modern open space with many restaurants, serving a variety of really delicious food. Make sure to check it out!

What a beautiful boutique hotel in the heart of Florence! Steps from the train station and close to everything. Wonderful breakfast included and the staff is warm and accommodating. Giovanni at reception tended to our every need with a smile. The welcome happy hour (first drink included) was a good addition. The rooms are very well designed with considerable thought being given to optimizing space. Plenty of excellent Chinese restaurants (odd but true--try the one right adjacent to the hotel) around if you get tired of pizza and pasta:)

This hotel was well worth the money. Located conveniently by the market and easy to get to all key locations in Florence. The staff was excellent, friendly and very willing to lend assistance. They gave great recommendations for restaurants and shopping. The included breakfast was plentiful and very tasty. The room was new, very clean and the beds were comfortable. We highly recommend for families.

Great location in the heart of Florence, few steps far from the station and the main attractions. Urban design and very comfortable room. The staff is simply amazing, always ready with great suggestions. They left cantucci in the room and hand written note to say us goodbye, very nice touch. We loved the breakfast as well, plenty of different options. Highly recommended.

Stayed at the hotel 5 nights in beginning of June. Very nice and helpful staff. Rooms small but clean. Lot of mosquitos in the room even I never open the windows, maybe the housekeeping let then in while cleaning. Airconditioning not working wery well, room was quite hot. Breakfast selection not great, but coffee good. Only big issue with wifi, connection breaking up all the time.

This hotel is very nice, staff was friendly and very accommodating. They have a good breakfast every morning plus a happy hour with snacks. It is centrally located from the Florence SMN station. The only reason I gave it 4 stars and not 5 is the size of the shower. It was so small. Could barely turn around..

Dear F8398TTstephanieb, thank you ever so much for taking the time to post on your review of your recent stay with us here in Florence. We are happy that you enjoyed our breakfast and welcome drink. We always try to do our best and meet our guests’ expectations and it is nice for us that you felt it. Great also to read that our central location, next the central station, was just perfect for You ;) We are deeply sorry You did not rate as 5 stars because the shower; as You mentioned, in some rooms, it could be a little bit tiny but it is a normal size for the historical building located in the heart of Florence. We all hope to have the possibility to welcome you back at Globus Urban Hotel during Your next stay in Florence. Kindest regards, Giovanni Guest Relations Manager
