Hotel Rex
Ranked #347 of 411 Hotels in Florence
Reviewed January 22, 2014 via mobile

The location of the hotel was very good. It was very near to city center and also near to touristic places and cafes.. The rooms are clean. But Restaurant part is poor.. We didn't spent so much time at the hotel but it Would be better if their restaurant was larger and richer.

Stayed: July 2013, traveled as a couple

Friends recommended this hotel, they always stay here: it's very popular and fillls up.
A room in the back is what I asked for and got, so it was quiet. Rooms on the Via Faenza can be noisier. Perfectly comfortable, if a bit dark, but who needs a beautiful room in Florence, when you only sleep there? Breakfast was fine, adequate, nothing special, but enough and nice service. Desk staff are great, and the location could not be better, for access to the station, and to all the sights of Florence.

Room Tip: Rooms in the back are quieter, and off the Via Faenze.

Nice good located hotel in the real centre of Florence. You will admire the city for USD 100 a night. All turist places of interest are 20-30 minutes maximum! Rex hotel is an ordinary one, there is nothing special. Moreover, there is no safe box at all (rooms and reception). However, I had no problems, no discomfort... Everything was good enough to stay there one night and 2 days.

Location was excellent. An easy walk to all the major sights. Plus some good tips on restaurants. Yes, we experienced the bad smelling carpets when we first arrived. They gave us a room on the 3rd floor and as soon as we walked in we almost gagged from the old, smokey carpets in the room. I went down to the desk and Rocco was apologetic and without hesitation gave us a better room on a different floor that had the carpets out and replaced with hardwood. All for the same price. Breakfasts were fine, nothing more.

Location was right in the middle of all sights and very close to the station. Previous comments from others regarding the carpets are accurate, they should be replaced as they are grubby. However this is the only complaint I have. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the room itself was a good size. Breakfast was fine and altogether the hotel offers excellent value for money,

The staff was friendly and helpful both times we stayed at Hotel Rex. (2010 and 2012) The breakfast was very good. Room was a good size and clean. Close to the train station and within walking distance of major attractions. People at the front desk are willing to suggest a good place to eat that is not far away where we had one of the best dinners both years we were in Florence and the service was also very good. They will also suggest where to shop.
