I recently stayed at the Hotel Ferretti for 2 nights with my daughter and her friend, and we had a great experience there with no complaints. It's a small family-run place in a great location. It was a 5 minute walk from the train station, and an easy walk to everything we wanted to see in Florence. The owners were friendly and helpful. They made reservations for us at a couple of the galleries and explained everything to us. Our room (a triple) was small, but very clean and comfortable, with its own bathroom. It's not the Ritz, but that's not what we wanted or expected!

There is sand in the water that comes out of the sink and shower and they won't even let you look at the breakfast unless you give them 5 euros, yet breakfast consists of dry croissants and cold generic coffee (same thing you would get for free anywhere else).Staff was rude, unprofessional and dying to overcharge you (there's a price at the entrance, then the price they tell you, then a higher one when is time to pay). Room was noisy (surrounded by bars and restaurants) and you could even hear people getting busy in the room next door. Overall, NOT trustworthy and not a good deal for your money. I would never come back.

We booked online to stay in this hotel in February 2007. We never passed the reception agressed by barking dogs of two old owners couple. I just read all the terrible reviewes of other people who experienced the same or worst service and want to leave mine to warn people of what to expect here! These people were absolutely disgusting, be warn and don't stay here!

They are rude, aggressive and we have NEVER been yalled at in a hotel before! We travel very often, have visited most of Europe and never came across such horrible people.

TO AVOID ABSOLUTELY

NE VENEZ SURTOUT PAS ICI, LES PROPRIOS SONT SCHIZOS.

Room Tip: Horrible place, go elsewhere

I booked a single room with its own bathroom. My surprised when I got to my room: the bathroom was outside, but I shouldn't get worried because it wasn't a shared bathroom, it was mine... but outside of my room!... Uh?!??!

Please, keep your cash. You will need it to pay at the check-out!... They don't accept credit card, just cash!

The neighborhood is very noisy but the hotel is near of everything. You will get it walking from the Stazione Santa Maria Novella and visit the main attractions in Florence just walking. The locations is the only advantage that this hotel could offer.

This is good hotel for a few nights. Average standard. But location is great, just few minits from the reilway station, and to the center. If you want to see Florence in a few days, this hotel is great for that.
Nice stuff.

I stayed two nights at Ferretti, and the price and location (blocks from the basilica and train station) are super. The reception were wonderful to us - Sandra was kind enough to go through a map of Florence with me and point out different sites and markets to visit, and then she called and booked a tour for me. It was such a pleasure to be greeted by her and Roberto each morning, and the guy who worked the desk in the evenings (sorry, I never learned his name) was incredibly friendly, too.

We appreciated that everyone coming into the hotel had to go past reception, so we never felt unsafe. The hotel is in an older building, which means it lacks the amenities of a newer building: air conditioning, an elevator and sound-proof walls. But it was never too loud, and our ceiling fan adequately beat the heat, and we also had free Wi-Fi, enabling us to Skype with loved ones. Our private bathroom wasn't connected to our room, but it was quite large and clean, and the towels provided to us were the best quality towels we have EVER used. The hotel is nothing extravagant, but if you are flexible and not high-maintenance, you won't be bothered, and you can't beat the price.

Room Tip: If you have any specific requests (quieter room, private bath), address them before you book.
