“New Hidden Gem with Minor Growing Pains but Well Worth It”
Reviewed June 7, 2009

Room: modern, attractive, comfortable (though bed could be more comfortable), clean, fairly quiet & spacious (ours had skylight in room and bathroom)
Decor/ambience: luxe, strikingly modern public spaces from entrance to lounge
Service: reliable & courteous, not extraordinary but far better than Rome hotels
Location: perfect - link between Piazza Michelangelo (quieter side of Arno with fabulous views & pub) and center of old town
Amenities: lovely basic amenities, in-room wi-fi & net access in lounge (included in room rate, as it should be), a few complimentary beverages in mini-bar (as it should be, at this level), complimentary snacks in lobby
Breakfast: very nice, abundant and wonderful service
Note: No outlets compatible with US/UK plugs, requested adaptor at booking, in-room brochure lists adaptor as available, but front desk told us to look for one at a local electronics shop (no suggestions so a wild goose chase). Although it's a miracle they can keep everything so white, 1 of our pillow shams had a relatively obvious dark stain. Bed linens, while of crisp and pressed linen, are too rough and hot. They're new so we figure some of these issues are merely growing pains. Overall, a great boutique hotel.

We stayed for 2 nights and had a great time. The center and most of the historical sites of florence are at walking distance; about 10-12min walk to the dome. Reception was very helpfull in giving us tips where to go etc.

the minibar is for free! although not as full as in other hotels, but you get 2 cola's and 2 bottles of water for free.

I was very disappointed when I arrived at this hotel - lobby was shabby and no sign of the 'refurbishments' mentioned in their website. Room was drab and bathroom had cracked toilet seat and cracks in the plaster. Overall a very poor hotel and I would hardly rate this as even a one-star. The only good point was the location - five minutes walk from Santa Croce church and central to all the main sights.

A very nice hotel. Its architectural structure is a little strange, but is compensated for the employees? amiability and attention. It is no in the centre of the city but is a small city, and in ten minutes you?re at the best monuments. It's clean. It's quiet, far away from railway, or market, you has a relaxed sleep.

This hotel has not been completely refurbished as indicated in the description, at least not anytime recently. We booked four months in advance, requesting a quiet upper floor room. We were given a lower front room that needed some serious maintenance and had a lot of street noise.

Welcome to Home Florence Hotel, nice and cozy villa just by Florence downtown! White though apparently pure and simple is the color including all the other colors. When crossing crystal a white light beam turns out into a rainbow unveiling its hidden complexity. At Home Florence you can experience the same shy and composite sophistication. Modern design characterized by pure and perfect elements sweetly melts with the elegance of an historical Florentine palace. The result is an harmonious balance of lounges and decors where white with golden details is the predominant color.Home Florence is located along the Arno River in the very heart of Florence historical center, close by the main tourist attractions of the city such as Basilica di Santa Croce, Ponte Vecchio, Duomo di Santa Maria del Fiore and Uffizi Gallery. ... more   less
