“Perfect Location, Excellent Staff,”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2013

Perfect, perfect location, clean to a high standard( I should congratulate and thank Anna Maria, the housekeeping manager and her team ), very good breakfast; excellent, helpful reception ( thank you Laurent and Valentine) and smiling breakfast staff.

For the price of the hotel, kettle in a room and faster WiFi would be ideal, as these two were my main concerns.

Very helpful staff and comfortable rooms with very modern bathroom attached. Very substantial breakfast served to cater to different tastes. Hotel situated in Central location affording access to all the important sites in the City.

The good and the not so good. As for the staff they were wonderful. The property is gorgeous in a wonderful historic building. The location is outstanding. A short walk to all the major locations. Some have felt the rooms were plain, but they are in fact well decorated in a very modern style.
Here are my issues with the property. First and foremost some have said this is a business hotel. It is not. The internet is slow and not usable to access even small files. The connection drops, the documentation says it is only 128K but in fact my test showed much slower. The other issue is the sound. Because of the street noise and historic windows it can get very noisy at night. A minor issue was the uncomfortable chairs in the room. The last issue is because it is an older building and in the old part of town irons are not allowed in the rooms (or so we were told). So figure you're going to be wrinkled unless you use their laundry service. Being on vacation not a problem so much, but if I weren't, big problem.
Having spent an average of 100 plus nights a year in a hotel for the last 7 years I know 4 and 5 star and this is more of a 3.5. Again great location, great staff, wonderful building, but there are issues.

We stayed here part of our Honeymoon adventure. Booked through expedia as a special. The location of the hotel is superb, can hardly get better really. Its bam in the centre of everything. We had a room (303) facing the street and although we did hear people and music on Friday and Saturday night (we were facing the street) it wasnt that bad that we couldnt sleep. The rooms are quite small and so was the bed, but everything was clean and the room was cleaned daily and we received fresh towels daily which was great. The people at the reception were extremely friendly and really helped you with everything. In the bathroom they didnt have lampshades to cover the extremely bright lamp bulbs and also the thing you put your soap on in the shower was hanging. I went downstairs to tell the man at reception and he was just so curtious and got it fixed straight away. Ive stayed at so many city hotels where the people at the reception dont care about anything, here they really gave you service. The breakfast was very good too. Dont spend too much time in the room though, Florence is an amazing city which really deserves and needs exploring

I enjoyed my stay at NH Porta Rossa during my honeymoon. The hotel is in an old building however the facilites are very modern. The hotel staffs are very friendly and helpful especially Ms Valentine. The other staff that assisted us on the check in recommended a few good restaurants nearby which I find it very impressive. Room are spacious enough and the night are quiet and the sleep are quality. It's a romantic experience in Firenze staying with NH Porta Rossa. I will recommend this hotel to my friends.

This was the first time in Florence for my Husband and myself, and we really lucked out with this Hotel. We arrived late, but the Front desk staff were excellent. We were upgraded to a superior room on the Mezzinine level overlooking the street, and really didn't find it noisy at all. The room was spacious enough for the two of us, and we were really impressed with the modern amenities in the bathroom. The breakfast buffet was excellent with enough choices to accommodate everyone. The location is excellent and we walked everywhere we wanted to go, it was so central but without being in the middle of town. Thanks to all the staff for their care and attention, and we'll definitely be back at the Porta Rossa on our next visit.

I enjoyed my stay in this older hotel that has been re-vamped entirely. Outside it looks older than it is. All modern furnishings inside so you get all the comforts. I would stay here again for sure even though I paid a little more. NH is a good chain to look for in other european cities as well.

Room Tip: like any old hotel, it can be a bit of a maze inside, but everything is updated. If you are worried...
