We stayed here for 3 nights. Lovely hotel, well preserved & maintained. Good rooms, good breakfast and the best of all is the location. Situated in a posh area and nearby all the major tourist spots in firenze with lot of restaurants around. 10 mins walk from the train station. Staff on the front desk is unfriendly and the hotel...

We enjoyed our stay and will return. The staff were attentive and full of information. The rooms were clean and beds very comfortable. There is a lovely inner courtyard to have breakfast or relax throughout the day. The breakfast was plentiful and delicious.

The rooms very smelly and dirty. And the guy at the reception was very rude. Although in the heart of the city and close to all sightseeing points (within walking distance). The good part was that there is a huge park right in front of the hotel which is very pleasing.

Overall, the hotel is walking distance to some of the tourist area. there was a convoluted way to find our hotel room. The room was adequate, you get what you pay for. The bed was not comfortable- furniture is old and tired.

We were alloted the rooms facing the garden which also happens to be the smoking area. Rooms are ok..bathrooms are spacious. For a hotel with 63 rooms the breakfast room is very inadequate ,considering they are entertaining groups. Both days we squeezed ourselves in after waiting long for a hurried breakfast. They rush you to a cellar room for breakfast... More

Dear customer. Thank you for your review. Sorry you had to wait for breakfast. But why did you not passed on to the reception that you had a tour. Because we had opened the breakfast room earlier than 7 o' clock only for you. We hope to welcome you again More

Hotel Donatello is perfectly located - a ten minute walk from Santa Maria Novella train station and, like everything in Florence, ~20minutes from everywhere else. The hotel itself is beautiful, with an adorable courtyard, and the rooms are incredibly spacious and comfortable. We were fortunate enough to have a balcony as well. The breakfast is not great, and we were... More

Really beautiful hotel with a wonderful quality/price ratio. The room was really charming and clean, the breakfast was ok. I'm really satisfied by the choice of this place. Strongly recommended! Also the position is quite good, not exactly in the city center but not too far from it.
