“Not a four star experience for us”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2013

Our stay at the Atlantic Palace was definitely not a four star experience. The staff at the hotel were nice and informative, the location was good but our room was dingy and old with a poor bed. The walls were paper thin and you could hear every conversation the people in the rooms adjoining us had. Perhaps there were better rooms in other parts of the hotel but it was not our experience.

I booked this hotel for my wife and I as the price was a good deal, I then saw some mixed reviews on this site but didn't feel this would be a problem as the hotel would only be used as a base for the four days we were in Florence, we were right not to be concerned. The hotel is located only a few minutes walk from the railway station and 5-10 minutes from the Duomo and the other main tourist locations. The public areas of the hotel were comfortably furnished and very clean, our room was at the rear of the hotel which meant it was very quiet, the room was large and very spacious with a beamed ceiling, the furnishing's were rustic and comfortable, the decor was a little dated but it was spotlessly clean, the room only had a ensuite shower and not a bath. The breakfast is a buffet style and offered a good selection of cereals, pastries, fruit and a cooked choice, although the fruit juice choice is either concentrated orange or concentrated orange. Finally a comment about the staff, all were excellent, very friendly, pleasant and helpful. I would be happy to stay here again!

Very friendly and helpful staff. I got a room towards the busy street that could be a problem for light sleepers. Had a double bed but could only sleep on one side as you could feel the bed springs on the other. The air condition could only be turned off by switching off all electricity. Wifi was free but worked only in one spot in the room. If you like a big healthy breakfast this would not be your choice. But the Mercato Centrale just around the corner had all the fresh food you would need. It was not easy to find a hotel in Florence in September if you book late. For a few days the hotel is ok, not so modern but close to all the sights and the railway station.

Rooms were large but poorly decorated. Bathroom was average. It was all clean but would have wanted a touch of Italian style for what we paid.

Breakfast was a buffet which was nice. Not incredible but certainly enough to set you up got the day.

Good location- all major sites are within walking distance.

This hotel was the nicest we've stayed in Italy so far...good solid breakfast which was nice! Good location, close to the train station and close to the Duomo! Plenty of restaurants around to choose from and super close to the leather market too for shopping!

Fabulous location with everything you need walking distance.
Staff are friendly and always happy to help. Our luggage had been lost but they helped us to chase it and were very kind.
Breakfast was below average, we didn't eat it after the first day as everything was stale but not a big deal as there was McDonald's and cafes across the road.
Rooms were a big size for Europe. Could use a refurb. My bed had a spring that stuck in my back and kept me awake.
Overall good value for money.
