“Nice area and big room”
Reviewed September 18, 2013 via mobile

We stayed here 2 nights. Great area big clean room. Breakfast was okay not special. Reception staff was very helpfull. Minus was the small elevator up to the room. The Domo is around the corner and the trainstation is on walking distance.

We liked this hotel... pretty easy to find, but its a doorway with a buzzer. The room was large, ensuite, fridge (which was a little noisy in the night). But the stars are the Owners, so helpful.. gave maps, recommendations for restaurants - with discounts :).. advise on where to go, what to do. Very friendly - kept our bags the next day so we could explore more.

The room was very clean and the breakfast was a tray of cups, water to warm up in the microwave (for the tea/coffee)... sponge cake and apple juice for breakfast.

Very reasonably priced and a great location for exploring the city... which is Beautiful! You must go!

I'd go back and i'd stay with them/here again.

Room Tip: Remember it's a buzzer on the side of the door. The road is busy with buses but you don't g...

If you want to wander round Florence easily, Hotel Centrale is in a great location. It's not far from the Duomo so easy to get your bearings to other tourists spots. Also near to one of the markets & lots of cafes, restaurants. The rooms are clean, cosy and fairly basic but if you're touring - it's just for sleeping and were comfortable.
The breakfast was great and even had some gluten free options and soya milk! As well as the usual ham, cheese, crossiants & fruit.
Staff were very helpful and booked trips with no problems at all!

It is more of a 3 1/2 star rating. Great location for sure. Breakfast was so bad that we decided to go out for breakfast after the first day although breakfast was included. Concierge was a hit or miss depending on who you get. Bathrooms in the room were modern and renovated which was a huge plus. They change the bed sheets every 3rd day if that makes a difference for anyone. Overall I would recommend the hotel because of the location (VERY close to the duomo amd other attractions) and clean bathrooms.

I spent two nights in this hotel in the middle of August. Everything was great, apart from the air conditioning. It worked, but sometimes too well. In theory it was possible to adjust the temperature digitally...I woke up freezing. Then I was too warm. Maybe it was me. I'll give them the benefit of the doubt as this was the only problem. Good breakfast, with the option of a fast track if you have to leave before the breakfast room opens at 7.30 a.m. The hotel is on the upper floors of law and other professional offices. The reception is spacious with friendly helpful staff 24/7. Central location near the station and all other sights. whT could be bad? I recommend it!

We stayed here for three nights. Took advantage of an early booking offer. Sara assisted with this, and everything else!!! More helpful one cannot get. Sara arranged tours, luggage storage, info on some of the artwork, just about anything one could ask for was provided. She even sent links for the tours I needed to book myself.
The location of this hotel is fantastic. Stand on the nearest corner and look up - in front of you the spectacular Duomo, turn to the side and you see the as fantastic Medici Chapel.
We had the twin deluxe room with the view of the Medici Chapel - UNBELIEVABLE!!!!!
I highly recommend this hotel for its friendly and helpful staff members, especially Sara, its fantastic location, really "centrale" and close to SMN train station (8 minutes walk), as well as the hotel arranging all our activities, tours etc for us. It really helped to have a "local on email" when trying to arrange a trip from South Africa!! I will not hesitate to recommend this hotel and stay here again in future.

Room Tip: There are 2 twin rooms on the side of the Medici Chapel. Only one has a view. Ask for the one with...

Hotel Centrale is just that - central!! It was a great "home base" to venture out and walk around Florence, yet still feel like we were close enough to the hotel for a quick snack or afternoon nap.

The staff were helpful, and the rooms were very nice and just right for both the price and the location. Literally 1.5 blocks from the Duomo, and from there you could pick ANY direction to walk in and you'd hit a major museum/church/market/piazza within minutes! It is also a short 10 minute walk to the main train station, which also came in handy.

The breakfast area was nice, and the food was tasty. A nice selection of assorted breakfast foods/items to get your day going, and it was included in our room price along with wifi.

My wife and I were celebrating our 10 yr. anniversary and we would definitely come back to Florence and stay at Hotel Centrale! Lots of great pizza places around the area, the gelato was amazing pretty much anywhere you chose to stop at, but the BEST lunch/dinner place we ate at while in Florence was Trattoria Katti... and it was only about 2 blocks away from the hotel (take a left upon exiting the hotel, walk for 3-4 minutes)!!
