Lovely modern room very clean excellent bathroom facilities lovely décor, would highly recommend. would stay again, however we are very active and maybe a little far out if have walking difficulties, hotel was more than helpful ordering taxis so this could be overcome.

We recently stayed for two nights in this lovely little hotel. Our room was immaculate with a lovely comfortable bed and quiet, despite the fact that it is on quite a busy road. The staff were so helpful and polite. Breakfast was excellent and nicely presented. The snacks in the afternoon were a welcome extra after a hard day sightseeing! The weather was very hot when we were there, so the efficient and quiet air conditioning was very welcome. The hotel is about a 10 minute walk from the Duomo, it was a bit further to the Uffizi and the river, but it was an easy walk to both. The only negative point was that it was difficult to park to unload suitcases as the road is not very wide, but the nearby secure car parking once this had been done was great and well worth the 20 euros per day parking fee. We think it definitely deserves more than a 3* rating. It was the best hotel we stayed in on this trip, the others being 4* and not up to this standard. We were recommended to eat at Le Fonticine which is about a 5 minute walk and this was an excellent recommendation. Food and service were very good. We would certainly recommend this lovely and hotel and definitely return if we came to Florence again.

The Rapallo is well situated for the centre of Florence, and if you are arriving by car easy to get to, plus they have a secure car park. Our room was comfortable, well equipped and very clean. Breakfast was also good. However the service was even better - helpful and very friendly. We would stay here again.

I have no complaints about the hotel, the breakfast was great, the food was well presented. The coffee and snacks in the afternoon were very welcome on a very hot day. There was a selection of hot and cold drinks, crisps nuts and pastries. The room was very clean and well maintained.
The hotel was about 10 minutes from the Dome and going back in the evening my wife felt it was a bit scary as the streets were deserted.

The hotel is above average, nothing too fancy. It is very clean and appears quite modern and updated. We stayed here on the last night of our honeymoon prior to flying out of Florence. It is a short walk to the Piazza and the Duomo and the historical center. The staff is so helpful and pleasant. The night of our arrival the staff on duty insisted on calling Giannino's (a wonderful recommended restaurant in the center of things) and making reservations for us. He was so enthusiastic to show us where to go and what to see with our limited time in Florence. The breakfast was good as well. It was a pleasant and practical but short stay in Florence, great for logistics of being able to get to the airport quickly and also the sights if one is looking for a convenient and modern hotel with cleanliness, a courteous staff and a good breakfast.

Good breakfast. Location is good, though one has to walk a few blocks more than the central ones. I recommend rapallo for cleanliness, great beds, linens and towels and size of the rooms.
