“Great value, comfortable and terrific location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2013

We stayed at Room Mate Luca in late September 2013. The staff were so friendly and helpful and they made our stay so very nice. The rooms are wonderfully large and comfortable and the breakfast buffet is great. You can get spoiled on pastry and cappuccino every day. You can't beat the location. You are never more that a 5 to 20 minute walk from any site in the historic district of Florence. When you are exhausted from touring all day, you stop for a bottle of wine, some cheese at a shop down the street and ease into the comfortable couches in the main floor sitting area. In all Room Mate Luca is a great value for the terrific rooms, food and service they offer.

Dear Mr/Ms Parkers,

nothing could make us happier than finding out that "Luca" has been "terrific" for you. You have enoyed everything of our service and we are glad that you have pointed out that its been really worth it.

Room Mate awaits to welcome you here in Florence again, or in another city in the world, to give you some special days like this time.

Best regards,

Stayed at Room Mate Luca on the 16th & 17th of Oct13. We had a pleasant stay with the staff always available for suggestions and helping us with our plans. They serve grt breakfast with excellent coffee. Would like to specifically thank Franco (front desk teammember) & Andre (all in one staff - bellboy & room delivery) who were very friendly and gave us info about the best restaurant and places to visit. Rooms were typical Europe style small rooms but well kept and well furnished. Only thing which turned me off (which is not so imp) are the lizard wallpapers they have all over the place. Its creepy to have lizard wall paper on the corridors. Cheers to the team of Luca as we had a superb holiday with them. Highly recommended.

As soon as I have enter into the hotel I immediately felt welcomed.
The modern style make the hotel standing out between the many other hotels where I have been to.
The colours and the furnitures are amazing, I really liked the wallpapers.
I had a room on the third floor just infront of the Cupola del Duomo Santa Maria del Fiore, it was a very spacious room and i had the internet connection.
Further more, I could have breackfast up to 12noon.
At the reception, I found the staff very helpful,friendly, professional and GianLuca is always smiling and very carefull.
Thank you all their suggestions we had the opportunity to really live Florence.
I simply love it and I would recomand to everybody to book a room and really enjoy their stay in Florence.

We spent a long weekend here this fall. The rooms are basic, but very clean and quiet. The staff is extremely helpful. We walked to all of Florence's attractions from here, the Duomo is less than 10 minutes away, and the train station (and stop for the airport bus) is about 20 minutes away.

Had a stay of nine nights. The first two nights, I had a tiny, cramped room with an even more cramped bath room. As a male you had to decide your business before entering...
Afterwards an ok sized room with a view to to the Medici Chapel. Very nice.
Breakfast is ok-ish, very basic, however. Stayed the same all nine days, and some times, elements were missing (e.g. scrambled eggs, boiled eggs, bacon) So the last days I chose to have my breakfast elsewhere.
Much can be forgiven... staying at this hotel, you will be next door neighbours to the St. Appolonia with their breathtaking Last Supper. And you are in walking distance to right bank Florence (Palazzo Vecchia, the Uffizi, the Academia is very close by, other museums and countless churches, and if in good condition also to left bank Florence (Palazzo Pitti, Giardino Boboli etc.)

From the first moment we walked in the hotel, we felt home, an Italian team of professional, and passionate persons! Mario the Manager, he was always around to make sure that we weren't missing anything, even at breakfast, he would give us tips about the city.
Luca the front desk guy: Chatty and devoted man keen to give us all sort of informations to spend the best journey possible in Firenze.
Thanks again!

Thank you - we visited your hotel in May/June - we were so impressed with how far you went to help us with an unpaid toll bill (we were confused with the toll system being the first time we had driven in Europe) We were also very impressed with the hospitality and warmth of the man who helped us with our bags (porter). Breakfast was so lovely. All staff were friendly

Thank you! we hope to be back - we loved Florence so much!!

Room Tip: great view
