From this location it’s less than a 10 min walk to the city centre. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Our room was nice and simple with a renovated bath. Recommandable.

Our hint: if you book early enough you can ask for a quiet room and you will get one facing the backyard.

(Period of stay: 2 days in August 2011)
(Room: one of the main rooms facing the backyard)

From beginning to end a lovely place to stay in Florence :-) Easy to get to from the train station & within walking distance of most breathtaking sights in Firenze (Duomo, Uffizi, Ponte Vecchio, etc). Staff who are professional but also friendly & kind. A modern, spacious & clean room with a great shower. Cannot wait to visit again :-)

Beautiful, tastefully designed, remarkably roomy and quiet, modern rooms at a 10 minutes walk from the Duomo. Young, relaxed, intelligent, helpful and genuinely friendly staff. Great value for money. Highly recommended.

A short walk to the Duomo and attractions the Relais Modern is in an excellent location.

You enter the hotel through a huge medieval door which is key coded so you feel like a local immediately.

The staff are friendly and the breakfast was nice but they only offer you one cup of coffee in the morning and it is made clear you are definately not allowed to use the coffee machine yourself.

The rooms are very nice and the windows are security shuttered at street level which is comforting. However the walls don't block any sound and we were constantly being woken throughout the night by inconsiderate fellow travellers stomping about on the wooden floors with high highs and talking loudly.

I would stay again but would recommend bringing ear muffs.

We stayed in this clean, modern B&B for 2 nights and were extremely impressed by the friendly service from Alberto, the owner, particularly in assisting with restaurant recommendations and helping us to avoid the city's congestion charge. The furnishing of the room was quite basic but very comfortable and the location is very convenient - only 10 minutes' walk from the Duomo. The breakfast could have included better ham. juice and more fresh fruit but the coffee was fantastic. Overall excellent value for money indeed.

During our Europe trip, we travelled to 9 different cities and put up @ 9 different accomodations. This hotel gave me the deepest impression when i made my booking.

When i made the booking, the concierge, Fulvio, went the extra mile to inform us that all the museums will be open to the public for free during the week we were there. On top of that, he offered to make bookings for us so that we didnt have to queue to get in. All these at no extra cost. I thought that was a really nice gesture. During our stay, Fulvio was really helpful in answering all our enquiries. And he speaks really good english.

We totally felt at home during our stay @ Relais Modern. It has modern finishings, surprisingly quiet, a nice cosy kitchen whereby you can make your own tea anytime you like.

My only complaint would be the distance to the main attractions area. Other than that, everything is absolutely fantastic. Will definitely stay there again.

We stayed at Relais Modern for 4 nights while visiting Florence! What a great little bed and breakfast! Our room was so spacious and very modern in decor! The bathroom was of decent size as well! We were very impressed to say the least! They do have air conditioned rooms; however, Florence does not allow the use of air conditioning until June 1st. The hotel is not well advertised on the outside of the building when you arrive but just look for #22. It is about a 15 minute walk to the Duomo and the train station so we did not need transportation while we were there! We ate a very tasty breakfast provided by the hotel each morning! There is not always someone at the front desk but we did not find this to be an issue because the two owners provide their cell phone numbers if you every need anything after hours. All in all....great hotel!
