Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 9, 2014

My husband, sister and two daughters travelled to Florence and stayed three days at hotel. The place is neat and comfortable. Ideal for bed and breakfast. Close to the historic places you can get everything walking. Staff is very kind and helpful, they helped us with museum tickets.

Hotel Kursaal is a short walk from the train station and in the heart of the main area. A few minutes from the outdoor and indoor market area.
Best thing about the hotel is they offered a free 2 hour tour with Paola Angelini (tour guide). She was absolutely wonderful, her knowledge was excellent. Along with the factual she told stories that made the information memorable.
Hotel was always friendly and helpful. Breakfast was a bit thin.

We stayed here for a night on our honeymoon on the way back to from Rome to Salzburg.
The location near the train station and many sights is perfect. Florence is not as big, you can walk to all the major sights. Cabs are sometimes hard to get and also expensive because of the many one way streets and restricted traffic areas.
The bathrooms at the Hotel Ausonia looked recently remodeled and very clean. The mattresses on the other side were like 3 inches thick and not comfortable at all (more like you would expect it at a hostel). The front desk staff was friendly and always available, breakfast was ok. Free Wifi available.

Room Tip: Room 23 was ok, new bathroom, old bedding.

The hotel Infrastructure is old but the staff made the difference trying to accomodate as much as possible some bad situations. In 3 nigths staying we faced 1 night without hot water for bathing...
I have to consider one very positive point about a courtesy provided by the hotel, 2 hours of a guided city tour covering the main points of Florence by Walking...
One negative point is the absence of fruits in the breakfast..

Hotel in the middle of Florenz, close the the most important places to see. Very old Hotel, no luxury, but clean. And sustainability is important at that Hotel, and i like that. The breakfast is not very good, the breakfast room extremely small.

forst of all the hotel is within walking distance from the train station, the hotel is very standard, small rooms, clean, in the heart of florence , you can easily go walking all around , never used a taxi or public transport, and do not expect to spend much time in the hotel, there is plenty to see in beautiful Florence and by the end of the day you will be walking many kilometers , so you will just need to see a bed and sleep :) if you are on Budget and do not want to spend a lot of extra buck on hotels and you care about fantastic location this is the place for you

The location is excellent, only a few blocks to the train station, bus station and metro. Walk a few blocks and your in the middle of a great shopping area or peering at Florence Cathedral's Doumo, Which we could see from our room balcony. The facility was very clean and comfortable, and had new tile and bathroom fixtures. The staff was very friendly and fortunately for us, spoke English. They provided excellent breakfasts each morning with an amazing appliance that provided excellent coffee as Americano, latte, expresso, etc. I really liked that appliance!! The room was very secure with new doors and locks throughout; Yhe elevator made it easy to transport our cases up to the 3rd floor. We stayed 9 nights and only had 2 complaints: The queen bed was actually two single mattresses that kept separating leaving a canyon between me and my partner. Do I have to mention that Italians and their friends like to party all night long and tend to use their outside voices inside!
