“Great Location and give the Attic room ago”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2013

We stayed here in July 2011. It's funny how you can read a bad review on one particular room of a hotel and tell yourself, well the rest of the review are OK, What are the odds that I'll end up with that room, a lot higher than you think apparently. Well there is one room in this hotel that is described pretty actually as a horrible room with thread bare carpet way to many stairs etc. but the hotel tell you that they are upgrading you which when they unlock the first door to your room and all you see is a very narrow stair case that seems to go forever, you know that, that so called upgrade is a lie. The housekeepers must hate cleaning these rooms because everything must be carried by hand up multiple stair cases and locked doors before you get to the bedroom. This is all true BUT after laughing your head off for a good 10 minutes you realise that, it actually is a GREAT multi storey apartment with two floors the first has a lounge, balcony, toilet and shower and the next level has a walk in wardrobe, sitting area, a large bedroom and bathroom. Apart from the first very dangerous set of stairs especially when the power goes out during the middle of the night and it is totally black and the only way out is on your hands and knees and bum just to get to the rest of the hotel were they have emergency lighting in the hallways but not your stairwell which has no windows or light. Anyway it is still a great room to have, it has great views and a very private outside balcony that was perfect to hang up and dry your clothes which in any other room you can not do because it would be seen by everyone and the hotel would object, yes the unlucky housecleaning staff do a great job cleaning it but it needs a makeover. Yes the room still makes me laugh but it also added a great storey to our holiday and I would stay in the same room again. You use the same facilities and breakfast with very on else but once in your room it is totally like your somewhere else altogether, very quite and those views of the city are great.

NH Anglo is a nice & classic hotel in Florence.

This hotel is about 15-20 minute walk to the duomo and only about 15 minutes walk to Santa Maria novella train station.

The front desk lady was very helpful, she gave us a good suggestion for nice florentine beef!

Breakfast was nice

Indeed all previews reviews have a little bit of Right.
The hotel is NH, so means +- good quality, but this building is in some details quite dated.
But in general the hotels and rooms are nice.
It’s a old classic building with lot of charm.
The rooms are biiiiig and very space full.
Personal helpful and +- friendly.
Breakfast: high “couture” buffet… hehe means, buffet that seems to be a kind of “sample” buffet…
Location: not in the center center… but if you like to walk.. it’s a nice walk to the center… you can see other part more than the Touristic Florence.
Parking: no parking available… it’s a living area, many apartments, so veeeery few free spaces. You better bring it to the public parking. All parking needs to be paid in Florence.

NH anglo American was a nicely set up hotel. Feeling old....furniture certainly was. Value for money nice location, not too far from the main tourist area, although when you get tired walking a taxi is needed.

Only problem was the room smelled musty and the mosquitos. Unfortunately since it was Autumn (end of oct.) the A/C doesn't work so we had to open the windows to bring the temp of the room down, this brought in the mosquitos. Which made me realize unlike in Asia, the Italians don't believe in putting screens to keep these pesky insects out.

We have always had good luck with nh hotels and this one was another great stay. We were only there for one night but would go back and stay again. We had booked a standard room however were upgraded to a superior room. It was very spacious with a comfortable bed. The shower was huge and had great water pressure. It is a very narrow entrance to get into the bathroom and the toilet is tucked away behind the door but let's face it, your not in Florence to spend time in your bathroom. It was not a deal breaker for us, but just wanted all of you to know what to expect. The front desk staff was very friendly and gave us a city map pointing out the hot spots to visit. It's about a 15-20 minute walk to the duomo and only about 10 minutes to/from Santa Maria novella train station. Breakfast was included in our rate, not sure what it costs otherwise. It was a good breakfast including eggs, yogurt, breads,meats, cheeses along with juice and coffee. They offer free wifi and the signal was good in the rooms as well as the lobby. There are sheets of paper at the front desk for a username and password. They do have an elevator but like most places in Europe it can only accommodate one person and a few pieces of luggage. The area was very quiet, and we walked back to the hotel about 7p and felt very safe. All in all we had a great stay and would defiantly recommend this hotel and plan to use it on our next trip!

Good place to stay while you are in Florence, it is a bit aside from the Station and the center of the town but a 5-10 min walk will get you right where you want to be. The staff is nice and helpful and the breakfast will give you a good start for the day of walking through a beautiful city. Just dont bring to much luggage, the elevator is pretty small but the rooms are what you would expect of a place like this.
