“Decent place close to the station”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2013

Courteous staff at the reception, typical italian breakfast which is unlimited. Rooms are a little dark. Advantage with this place is that it is very close to Firenze SMN station. Bathrooms could do with better ventilation.

We stayed as a family , in this hotel which is located just 5 minutes walk from the Santa maria Nouvella station of Florence. ( cross the street at the traffic signal and then take the lane to the right which is known as Fiume lane, the hotel is located on the first floor, three to four buildings one the left of this lane). Staff is very nice and friendly and the rooms very cosy . breakfast is also served in this hotel and is sumptuous and good quality. For 100 euros a nights for a family of three, it was a pleasant surprise and excellent value for money. All the important landmarks like the Duomo, Uffizi gallery, Academia gallery is a ten to fifteen minute walk from the hotel. All the important landmarks can be covered in a day if one plans well. I would suggest that one should take a bus no 12 from the bus station at florence which is outside the railway station and visit Piazza Michelangelo. From here you get a very good view of the city. then walk downwards across the Arno river into the Uffizi gallery street, Piazza Signora, Piazza Vellachio, the Duoma, St Lorentine church and then the Accademia gallery.

We stayed here to make early morning trip to Pisa Airport. Rooms were clean but there was a smell in the entryway where you took the elevator and if you opened the window in the room. Just don't open the window. Breakfast was very good. Staff were helpful. Some of our party left for airport later in the day and hotel allowed them to store luggage during the day for free.

Lombardi Hotel is located in the heart of the city and is just 5-10 minutes walk from the train station. Hotel staff is friendly and nice but the facilities are just basic. Breakfast is basic as well. I think 100 euro per night is a little bit pricy with this basic facilities.

This hotel was booked due to its easy location from the main train station Santa Maria Novella. Its also an easy walking distance to the main shopping areas and churches, museums, etc. The cost was very good, via Agoda, at 90 euros a night, inc breakfast. We were there in Jan.

Staff were always friendly and helpful. Thats a real plus for Italy! Certainly very happy there.

The hotel itself is deceptive. It only occupies one floor of the building you see in the photos, not the whole building. After staying in modernist type hotels, I thought that old and rustic would make a change. The Lombardi does not disappoint. It IS old and rustic but in a nice way. Takes a while to get used to the room and odours of age but it does grow on you and just put it down to the overall experience....starting from the old metal and wood elevator to the narrow hallways and then the bedroom.

Fear not, all facilities worked fine in the room and the bathroom is modernly equipped although on the squeezy side for my 183cm frame. On a slightly disappointing note, the TV, with numerous channels did not have a single English channel.

The wifi for the room is not free and requires a docket from the Front Desk for access. However, my laptop found another hotel's free wifi and I was able to connect to that instead, hence, internet access obtained.

The complimentary breakfast was fine and is the usual continental style setup, but with espresso coffee freshly made by the staff stationed at the breakfast bar.

The main gripe is that the road outside is used as a bus terminal and it gets busy from about 6.15am. You may need earplugs to sleep beyond that time. Still,it made sure that we never missed breakfast!

Apart from that, as already mentioned, the place does grow on you and we had a reasonably pleasant 3 nights there. For the money paid, it was good value.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that does not overlook Via Fiume, the street that the hotel is on. Buses use the stre...

Stayed mid November for 3 nights. We booked on the reviews from trip advisor. Totally great location, could walk to all the attractions and a 2 minute walk from the station in a safe area. Great restaurants located nearby. Breakfast was lovely. Staff were exceptional! Nothing was too much trouble and offered before being asked ie when we arrived we were asked f we needed any help with suggested itineraries, and more than happy to print my train reservation ticket. Would absolutely stay there again. Ps loved Florence!!
