“Stay in best western grand hotel Adriatico, Florence”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2014

I stayed for two nights at this hotel in June . The main thing about this hotel is the location. It is very near to the main train station . Five mins of walking you are there and it is also near many places that needs to be seen in Florence . You can also take the hop on hop off bus from near the station. There are eating places around 5 to 10 mins of walking from the hotel . This hotel offers breakfast and dinner only .. I did not eat dinner there though.. Breakfast is adequate and not elaborate . As per the best western brand rooms are clean and generally we'll maintained and certainly not a place with a view etc.. Functional hotel in a location which is very convenient for the purpose of looking around Florence and nearby places including Pisa etc..

Many thanks for your review and I'm sorry to read that you didn'y like our hotel, but there is something I want to clarify: our rooms meet the standard measures provided for in this district and we have some with a nice view over the florentine roofs, the hill of Fiesole and the Cathedral but you have to ask in advance as they are located on the 5yth sand 6th floor.

This is a nice hotels with great rooms.The pics of the rooms on the website do not do justice. The staff on the front desk is very helpful. However, watch out for the elderly sourly waiter at breakfast. The downside of this hotel is the maître de at the restaurant Oscar. Arrogant to say the least. Other than that, great value for your Euro.

I stayed for a night in this hotel. It is situated quite far from the historical center, 20 minutes walk. You won't see any medieval or renaissance buildings around. It is inside a working class area. Typical ugly small concrete apartment buildings from 60s and 70s. The hotel has a big parking in the back and tourist bus area in front of it. I admit is ideal if you come with your car or if you are a tourist bus driver.

The historical center of Florence is a very safe safe place. However I would not say the same for the area of this hotel. After the closing of shops late the afternoon you have to be careful.

The railway station is not far away. The nearby cheap multiethnic restaurants for locals are very noisy during night. Please ask for a room as high as possible.

The hotel works mainly with big tourist groups. Because is convenient for the tourist offices. The groups if you are unlucky make the breakfast time unpleasant. You have to wait for a seat. The foods are not refilled fast. The bread and croissant are not fresh and the bacon below decent quality. The staff of breakfast is rude and teach the customers of what they suppose to do during breakfast. Not one of my happiest breakfasts.

The rooms don't have any view because there isn't any. They are clean, big with comfortable big beds. Doors, chairs and the floor is a little run down but I could live with that.

If you find a good price prefer this hotel and for god-shake don't pay extra money for breakfast.

Thank you for your comment left but I would like to clarify a few things: our hotel is very large and has 129 rooms but usually we host only one group per day because given our enviable location (only 10 minutes walk from the Duomo and the Ponte Vecchio, no 20, and 3 minutes walking from the railway station of Santa Maria Novella), we prefer to work with individual customers who usually appreciates our services and our Hotel.

We have been staying here over the past ten years and have always found it to be ideal as a base in Florence. It is very close to the Duomo and the River. There is a secure, lock up car park which we find essential as we always drive to Florence. We have stayed in the superior rooms and also standard rooms. There is a fridge and on request a kettle and tea making facilities. An iron and ironing board will also be provided if required but one of the best things which is a new addition, is that there is now a pillow menu. The hotel has just been re-decorated and it is all looking very good. An interesting fact is that the Happy Hour with half-price drinks lasts two hours from 5-7 pm !!! The American Bar is very pleasant. Only criticism are the awful hangers which you cannot take off easily!!!

Room Tip: Superior rooms are bigger but we find most rooms are pretty good and well equipped.
