This hotel has a great location.It is located 500m from main train station.If you are planning to visit other cities in Tuscany it is great and in the evening there is not too much noise because you are not directly near station. The hotel is renovated so everything is new and functioning. Rooms are spacious as well as the bathroom. Beds are comfortable. Breakfast is a bit dull.Only scrambled eggs in the eggs department and the rest is classic continental selection. Staff is very helpful and their English is good. If you want to explore Florence or the whole Tuscany this is a great hotel to book. Only issue that I had apart from breakfast is some dust in the room even though they were regularly cleaned, but I think that is because ceiling is made out of wooden beams.

Just returned from Corona fearful city, real shame seeing all bars shops restaurants etc really struggling, the staff I chatted to were understandably fearful for their jobs, tourists are staying away despite no travel bans & several hundred miles from the effected North which is in lockdown. Anyway that aside the hotel was just the job for a city break. The flight from MAN was 1hr 55 the train from Pisa was 1 hr 10, it makes no difference if you buy train tkts online beforehand or at the station the price doesn't change €19.80 for 2, you will need €5pp for the Pisa Mover monorail from the airport to Pisa Central. Upon arrival @ Firenze SMN station use the right side exit down the steps turn right & follow the tram tracks right to the Embassy door 10 min max. Check in a breeze & room ready early, staff were all welcoming & ready to please, the brekkie was excellent, all manor of fruit, yougurts, pastries, cereals etc in a nice cellar type dining room with smart & clean attentive staff. The room was fine only 2 gripes, not 1 English channel on tv so couldn't really catch up on event's ( it's not the same on yr phone) & the room had an unreachable skylight which was covered with a thick blind which defeats the object really, the room could of done with the extra natural light really as the only window was only 1ft and waist high so wall lights & lamps were always required. The city is within walking distance with bars & restaurants a plenty en route our fave was The Joshua Tree €5 a pint the cheapest we drunk. All in all we had a lovely time but the virus threat deffo took the shine off it & lost a Venice trip in the process so it's yr call if you're due to go anytime soon. TIP - Set off a bit earlier to the airport & you can incorporate a Pisa tower trip, get off train at Pisa Centrale as you would anyway for the airport, then leave & your bag @ left luggage on the platform (5 Euro) or walk with it depending on your tightness!! Come out of the main entrance & walk in a straight line for 25 mins, loads of people I saw on the return flight were there with the same idea.

Location perfect, walking distance from station, trams and sights. Our room was lovely, think it was the family room because it had an extra bedroom and toilet! 6ft comfortable bed, tv, stocked mini bar, terrace with table and chairs, lovely fluffy towels changed every day. The breakfast was fabulous. I am vegetarian and my partner a meat eating Italian. There was so much to choose from. Fruit of many varieties, yogurt, pastries and cereals, jams and spreads. On the other counter there was salami and mortadella, scrambled egg sausages and bacon, ricotta, salads and rolls. To my delight they had an automatic pancake making Machine with 4 flavours of sauce. In the bar area there was often free tea and pastries and newspapers in a comfortable sitting area. If travelling to Florence this is an ideal base and we had a delightful stay.

Have stated here for past 2 nights, to start with hotel is located amazing junction, very close to station , well connected with bus, train , tram. Rooms are clean and thts where the fairy tail ends. They have marked themselves as 4* I think it's 2* , no service, no bottles of water even after reminding , no hot water kettel, air-conditioning is off, till u don't complain they won't put it on making u feel suffocated , no tea or coffee in the room , breakfast is below average cause of lack of options, for vegetarians there was one option "BREAD". Considering such low options it's very highly priced . Unless location is all ur looking for I won't recommend explore other options.

Travelled in by train from Pisa to continue our holiday and so proximity to the station was one of the primary reasons this hotel was recommended to us. Our family room was well proportioned with plenty of storage space, clean and a good size bathroom. Temperatures were in the mid 30s when we were there and air conditioning in the room was great. The buffet breakfast was more than adequate with a good amount of choice (on a par with all other hotels that we have stayed at in Italy). As this was our first visit to Florence, we were keen to see all the key attractions and nothing was more than 20 minutes walk from the hotel. The hotel staff were extremely helpful and friendly. We realised that our visit coincided with Florentina's first game of the season against Napoli and one of the receptionists even called her husband to get us some advice on the best time and place to obtain tickets as we had not organised them in advance (far more helpful than information we had been able to find online). The Stadio Artemio Franchi is a five minute train ride away (Campo di Marte station is about 5 minutes walk from the stadium) and the game was a real experience! Would definitely visit Florence and the Hotel Embassy again, and would recommend for families.

The location of the hotel isn’t too bad, it’s near the train station and also has buses nearby with a 15 minute walk into the main areas of Florence. I’d say next time I’d prefer to stay in the city centre as this hotel is a fair bit out of the way if you’re planning to explore the city. The room we had was very average, old and dark and our couch and walls were all stained with dirty marks which wasn’t too inviting. Breakfast was also average at best. I think this hotel is a 3 star hotel, a 4 is definitely pushing it.

Just two minutes walk from the main train station in Florence at Santa Maria novella, the Hotel Embassy could not be better located. Just a short walk and you are within reach of all the wonderful sights Florence has to offer. The room was clean, functional and comfortable and we enjoyed sitting out on our veranda when we were not out and about. The breakfast room was fully stocked in the mornings and the staff were friendly and most welcoming. If you want art and architecture, Florence is the city for you. The locals were friendly and the food was wonderful. we tended to avoid the most 'touristy' of places to eat (no pizzas'n'paninis) and there are plenty of choices. You won't need transport once you've settled in to the Hotel Embassy – everything is within walking distance, and that's the best way to see this most beautiful of cities. There is the Pisa Mover Tram if you want to venture further out and Pisa is not that far away. Of course everyone you meet is fluent in English, but you should try to speak Italian (download the Google Translate App to your phone) and you will be made most welcome. Buone vacanze!
