“room was totally acceptable, BUT”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2013

this hotel was placed on our itineray by a travel agency which provided us with an all inclusive package ,but on departure the management insisted on 4 euro's each for a room tax above our paid package,, I balked, but paid it rather than cause a great jesus scene, there is no doubt in my mind that it was nothing more than an absolute scam, I travel extensively, often with all inclusive packages, but have never got burnt over such larceny

Room Tip: check on extra charges well in advance, and look at room prior to check -in

My husband and I enjoyed four nights here at the Atlantic Palace. The reception staff were extremely helpful and friendly. The room was clean and comfortable providing all that was needed. The hotel was well positioned for seeing all the recommended sights and there were plenty of places to eat within 2 minutes walk.

This hotel is well situated in Florence. Within easy walking distance to the train station, the Duomo and the San Lorenzo Marketplace. Our rooms were typical small European style, but well decorated and comfortable. Although this is on a major road, it was very quiet. Our room overlooked the rooftops of Florence. We walked everywhere from here, even to the Pitti Palace. The breakfast was nice, and if you ask, the staff will make you a cappuccino for breakfast. It has an elevator, which is a big plus. My only complaint was that the front desk gentleman whose name was Diego was curt and unhelpful and bordered on rude. Otherwise a nice place to stay and good value.

Typical European room--small, but spotless. Comfortable bed. Since hotel is more than one building, there were small flights of stairs to reach room. Hotel is within walking distance to train station, many sites and restaurants. Staff friendly. Breakfast more than adequate. Free wi-fi.

We booked this as part of a budget break holiday from the UK while we were visiting family. Could not have been more surprised at the overall quality of service, location and even appointment of rooms. All excellent.
Please note that it is 5 mins easy walk from railway station, even with your luggage. We failed to look up on trip advisor and took a cab, which must go round a one way system. Cost us 12 euros and when we took a stroll next morning we laughed at how close it was by walking the other way.
Florence is delightfully compact which makes this hotel really convenient for all the tourist destinations. All in all very good and surrounded by nice restaurants and bars

Room Tip: If you think your room is small ask to see some others. For Europe I found them spacious

The hotel location is excellent. You can reach all important places walking.
Nevertheless, we had extremely small room. We were quite disappointed about that.
The service was very good. The staff were very helpful but I still do not understand why this hotel has 4 stars.

Room Tip: Please ask for bigger rooms facing the courtyard.

We only stayed for 4 evenings, but found the location (walking distance from the train station ... even with luggage) and the room was comfortable. Our room faced Via Nationale, and although it is a busy street, the shutters damped the noise/light effectively. Our bed was firm but comfortable and the ensuite bath was very nice and new and very clean. My husband loved the breakfast! I had yogurt and pastries; he had a hot breakfast. It was nice to start the day. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. I would recommend this hotel, and although it was more expensive than the others on our trip, we found it convenient, comfortable and spacious.
