The hotel is located very close to the train and bus stations but is not affected by them. Additionally, it is a short walk from the historical centre. The rooms are spacious, clean and modern. The bed was very comfortable and the room was quiet except when I opened the window. Breakfast was standard buffet fare. The staff were friendly and always willing to help. I would thoroughly recommend this hotel.

I recently spent a night at Sole with my wife while traveling by car in Tuscanny. The hotel was recently renovated and is basically a new property. All the amenities and exceptionally clean. The staff is friendly and helpful. Sole has a nice breakfast buffet to help get the day started. We were able to park our car in the street adjacent to the hotel with a pass provided by Il Sole. The hotel is right across the street from the train station for those traveling by rail. Would use this hotel on a return trip.

Hotel II Sole provides a great base for exploring Tuscany. The hotel is next to the rail station (not that you can hear anything), it's a few minutes walk into town, the rooms have been newly refurbished and look great, and you could not wish for more friendly or helpful staff. If you are considering Empoli book here.

Family-run hotel opposite of Empoli train station (yet very quiet rooms). Very recently thoughtfully refurbished. Comfortable room with spacious bathroom, all brand new and clean. Very friendly and helpful staff, good breakfast buffet, excellent location for exploring Tuscany by train and also convenient to Empoli town center (5-10 minutes by foot). Above all, very reasonable pricing - never had more value for money.
