Grand Hotel Adriatico

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 13, 2013

Highly recommend this hotel for those who would like to visit Florence. It is situated near the SMN train station with 5 minutes walk. Many good restaurant near the hotel. You can walk to almost all the attractions in Florence - Duomo, Piazza Signoria, Uffizzi etc.

Hotel room is clean and modern. Exceeding my expectation as it's even better compared to the photos. Breakfast is good.

The only bad point is the reception is very very busy and u need to wait a while for ur turn be it check in or any information needed. Something that could be improved.

At first many thanks for your nice review which is really important for us; thanks also for your note about our reception but normally, in high season there are 3 or 4 persons on duty for check in, check out and concierge. Hoping to welcome you again at the Grand Hotel Adriatico, please accept all our best regards. Daniele Benelli Assistant Manager

I would definitely stay at this hotel again. It is well-maintained, clean, and in a decent location. The room was a good size for Italy. There are many nice places to eat right in the area. The breakfast buffet was good, but the room was full two days in a row. If you're in a hurry, you might want to go down early.

Stayed for 2 days at this hotel in Oct 2013. I am a BW Platinum member so used reward points to book.

The room as exactly as shown in the picture. We stayed in 702 room which are bigger and with a better view. Really nice sized room with a walk in closet. Rooms were very clean.

Service was excellent and everything we asked for was given in quick time. Breakfast spread is nice and cakes are fresh :)

I enjoyed the stay and would stay again given the service I got and close proximity to central Florence.

Room Tip: Higher floor 702 with a view and really big room.

I really liked Hotel Adriatico. The rooms were nicely furnished, beds were comfortable. I was taken aback at first by the elevators, but quickly got used to the small size. The hotel bar was nice as well and Sergio, the bartender, has a perfect personality for tending bar. He took very good care of us. The breakfast was good, lots of fresh fruit and the cappachino was yummy. A lot of people in our group were complaining that WiFi is only in the lobby (5 Euros for 40 minutes). That was not an issue for me since I do not check emails, etc on vacation. But I could see where it would be an issue if I was there on business. The location is very convenient to a lot of the major attractions, but definitely had to take a taxi to the Academia. There is a self serve laundry 2 doors over and after a week it was nice to do a load of basics. There is a very small quaint garden off the breakfast dining room that is very quiet if you want to get away from the city noise. We grabbed sandwiches and water one day at a store around the corner from the hotel and had lunch in the garden. Our last night there we had dinner at the restaurant connected to the hotel. The service was excellent and the food very fresh and good. I highly recommend this hotel and would stay here again if I ever get to Florence.

Stayed in the hotel for 3 nights in October 2013. This is our four stay in this hotel.Generally with a car ,this time came with a train.Very pleasant hotel,excellent breakfast. The staff at the reception desk was very helpful and willing to help and we would like especially mention Alessia who answered all our questions. The only complain we have is about the WI FI. We have been told they will solve it at the beginning of 2014....

I didn't know the hotel my travel agent booked me in was a Best Western until I arrived (was a last minute holiday). The rooms were incredibly clean and the only thing I would complain about was the scent they sprayed in the guestroom that was incredibly over powering. The room was very clean and well appointed, the twin sized bed made me feel like I was in my university dorm room. Since Florence is compact and walkable I don't think there's too many hotels that can be considered inconvenient. This hotel was walking distance from the central station, lots of restaurants and cafes close by as well. The next time I go back to Florence I would probably stay closer to the Duomo since it would probably be more convenient.

The internet connection had to be paid at front desk. If you try to connect online and pay through the service provider the price was significantly more. No wifi in the room, only in public areas with a charge.

This hotel is a group tour hotel, you will see lots of Americans travelling in packs and will see piles of suit cases lined up in the lobby some mornings.

No WiFi, from wich planet do they come from? OK, they have Pay-Internet.
BtW, in the streets of Florence you can pick-up the free WiFi-sgnal from FirenzeWifi. Not everywhere but it's OK. The hotel is very good. A 10 minute-walk from the railway-station. A 10 minite-walk to the Via Tornabuoni (the fashionstreet). Nice restaurants in the neighbourhood, like Trattoria Il Contadino, Ristorante Cento Poveri, da Giorgio. ! Fresh Past-shop! Pasta Fresca Moriona is a small shop with a large kitchen were they make fresh pasta, people are queuing at dinertime. All situated in the Via Palazzuolo.

Room Tip: We had a room on the 6th-floor like the picture.
