I dunno how this is listed as 4 star hotel. Avoid if you can. Pros were good breakfast, easy to catch bus to city center, and decent size room. Cons were poor wifi in room, unfriendly customer service, and dirty pool.

I stayed here for three nights with a friend and we received an unfriendly welcome from the reception staff who didn't not give us any information about the hotel and buses, instead we had to find this out for ourselves. One of the day's my friend was ill and the hotel staff were very unhelpful when we asked for some... More

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights while we were in Florence on honeymoon. The hotel is 25 minutes by train or 45 minutes by bus from the city centre. The train station is about 500m walk from the hotel, but you need to keep an eye on the train schedule otherwise you could wait for a long time... More

The hotel itself can't be faulted for cleanliness. Bathroom is cramped. However, the staff at reception were not helpful at all. The breakfast staff were more accommodating. It is possible to get to calenzano by bus for 2 euros from the train station. It takes 35 to 45 mins.The taxi costs around 35. The hotel is close to the bus... More

We staged our two week bike tour out of the Hotel First. The Hotel is incredibly convenient to the airport, essential for gathering our group together via varied schedules. Great parking, amazing support for assembling bikes and storing bike boxes. Lovely swimming pool, which was nice for having an evening wine party before dinner. The staff was very helpful and...

Stayed 4 nights at this hotel and found nothing wrong.. Even though it's in the middle of nowhere it suited us perfect! Rooms are cleaned with fresh towels every day, breakfast has a lovely selection. The staff are friendly. The pool was great as it was extremely hot!! And right next to a massive supermarket. Only thing we struggled with... More

We based ourselves at this hotel for 12 days whilst visiting Florence and exploring Tuscany by car, it’s about 1hr drive to Siena, Lucca, Pisa, San Gimignano and ideally situated. We found the train direct from Pratignone station (8 mins walk from the hotel) into Firenze SMN (25mins) excellent, it was punctual, air-conditioned and comfortable; and hugely preferable to the...

The hotel is very limited in every aspect. Our room did not have a proper shower, it was a shower head on the wall with no basin or cabin. The AC cannot be controlled. The rooms have a nice view of the pool but seeing the condition of the bathroom nobody would dare use the pool. The breakfast is horrible... More

Although the professional pictures may seem attractive, they were probably taken years ago, and have since become outdated as the hotel is being maintained at a 'just enough' level. Since the Hotel is located so close to the Highway, it's ideal for situations where you're looking for a place to sleep after hours on the road and want an early... More
