Lombardi Hotel
Ranked #201 of 410 Hotels in Florence
Reviewed May 2, 2011

Hotel Lombardi is located very close to Santa Maria Novella station. There is a nearby supermarket and plenty of places close by to eat. It is also only a short walk so the main tourist attractions.

The rooms themselves have names on the door labeled after famous artists. This was a nice twist. Our room was relatively clean and of a decent size although the shower was very small. Staff were friendly and provided us with a map and a few pointers on places to visit. They also answered all our questions on Florence without any fuss. A simple breakfast was also provided.

Overall, I would recommend this hotel for people looking for a conveniently located and reasonably priced hotel

Hotel Lombardi Florence Italy has bed bugs. Please do not spend your hard earn money on this dirty unclean hotel. The mattress have bed bugs and the staff does not care. The rooms are noisy. At night you will hear people talking at the front desk and the desk phone ringing. Do not stay at this hotel unless you want to bring bed bugs back home.

This hotel was amazing. It was roughly a ten minute walk into the main centre. The rooms were lovely, and quite big for such good value as well. The bathroom was average but can't complain! We stayed here for 4 nights, the receptionist was very welcoming and helpful.
The breakfast was basic but its what you need to start the day.
Our plan was to take a day trip to Pisa and then make our way down to Rome. This was so easy, the Santa Maria Novella Station not even a 5 minute walk from the hotel, and we could pick up the train to both locations with no problem.
I would defo recommend this hotel to anyone and its even better if you are on a budget!

Hotel Lombardi is in an excellent location in a side street near the main station. Very convenient for airport buses, the central market and just a short walk to the city centre. The staff were friendly, helpful and relaxed and reception is manned for 24 hours. The building and furnishing are authentically Florentine. Breakfasts were excellent value. Highly recommended

I stayed at this hotel with a friend in September 2010. I must say that the location of the hotel from the train station is excellent - 2 minute walk, however our hotel room was across from the bus stop and each early morning you can hear them start the loud engines. If your a light sleeper like myself, this is not perfect.

The service received was pleasant and the hotel staff were very welcoming and helpful throughout our 4 night stay. The hotel itself was a good size - perfect for two people, however the bathroom was extremely small. Cleaning was average, however there was strong evident of a water leak in the bathroom ceiling with mould forming on the ceiling.

Overall, nice hotel!!

I booked this hotel for a triple room with A/C. On arrival the room was very hot. On asking for the remote control for the A/C the Manager, whom I expected from previous reviews to be quite cooperative, sarcastically responded that nobody uses the A/C in Italy in September! I got my booking print out and explained that he confirmed the room price included an A/C for this period, he seemed to get quite angry, mumbling continuously while putting batteries in the remote control, that this never happened before, he can't believe it's happening, we are the only ones who asked for A/C, and added "Don't come asking me for a blanket when you are cold!". I pointed out that he could have simply advised me at time of booking that A/C is not included and I would have stayed somewhere else. Such an unprofessional response on arrival has a dampening effect on your mood and experience, but I won't let it affect my review.
So here are pros and cons:
Pros:
-Very Good location, close to the station and central.
-Clean rooms
-Very Good breakfast

Cons:
-Noise from buses and lobby
-Shower cubicle quite small
-Internet rate is high, there are little roads leading to the Historic Center around the hotel with many internet cafes at reasonable prices.
-If booking in September, just make sure the Manager has no objection to your use of A/C as the weather fluctuates and there are days when the room is really hot and stuffy.
