Hotel Rex is next to St. Lorenzo Church, and 2 min. walking from Duomo. We spent there 2 nights.
The room was clean and the breakfast buffet was O.K. The staff was nice.
You have a parking(20€/day) close to the hotel.

The room was very small and in desperate need of decoration however if you looked passed the peeling wallpaper and dislodged ceiling tiles it was as clean as possible. The bathroom was again small, required decoration however clean. No power shower but the mains powered shower did the job. I can understand why the other reports on this hotel are poor, as the 3 star rating is a bit surprising however if you just want a clean bed to put your head down in every night that isn't going to cost a fortune go for it. We only had 3 days in Florence so we didn't plan on spending a lot of time in the room anyway Our room was at the front of the hotel overlooking the Irish bar it was a bit noisy so if you're a light sleeper request a room at the back of the hotel or bring earplugs.Breakfast was a typical continental breakfast just basic no thrills tea/coffee, cereals, croissants, rolls, preserves and tinned fruit.The main thing this hotel has going for it is the location, its central to all the main places of interest with just a 3 min walk from the Cathedral if that.On summary I would say go to this hotel just don't go with any great expectations.

What can i say about this sewer? The only thing i happy about that we stayed in this place only 4 nights. This place highly NOT recommended for visitors. Service is BAD, rooms are old and dirty. Save your money and stay away from this sewer. I really don't understand who can give 3* for this .... Sorry for abnormal words, but i'm really upset.

We had a triple here. Don't waste your money on this dump. The shower was like a flood, the staff was not friendly (always a big deal with the minor of requests), and I almost threw up on the breakfast because the butter was old. The safe is in the wall could be easily accessed--didn't give me the warm and fuzzies of leaving everything we owned in there. If you pay over 100€ a night for this place you are getting ripped off. We paid double that and were not at all happy. It doesn't make a difference to fight with them since the hospitality they exhibited was not good. Florence is a major tourist trap, food is very expensive for little portions-- two slices of pizza and 2 beers at one place costs 46€ near the Ponte Vecchio (watch out before you sit down). They look at you like money bags so be careful before you open up your wallet, always ask the price and pay before taking a sip or a bite, or else you could end up with a tremendous bill. Just some helpful tips on Florence.
