“3 days in Italy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2012

This Hotel is at an execellent location, is very clean and the receptionist was very kind and helpful.
The breakfast was good but basic and I would suggest to includ some fruits as part of it.
If I had to return to Florence I would stay at the same hotel.
The information centre is also very helpful and has loads to offer. We needed a wheelchair for my mum and could get 1 there for 2 days what hepled a lot.

In a great location, very nice hotel and good service means its well recommended by me.

A few little issues - shower warm and not great, a bit dated - but these are not issues worth worrying about. All the big things are done well and thats good enough for me.

You get what you pay for and in the Hotel Martelli in Florence we got more than we paid for. The staff were helpful, the breakfast, though basic was plentiful. Our room was clean as was the Hotel generally. The furniture and the decor is a little old and tired but in a building centuries old, I think that is to be expected. The central position of the Hotel is an added bonus. We would definitely stay there again. When in Florence do visit the Pitti Palazzo, a shortish walk from the hotel over the Ponte Vecchio Bridge.

Very old room which smelt of smoke. The shower was a joke. It took ages to warm up and when it eventually did it drizzled out (or fluctuated rapidly in temperature).
The breakfast was pretty standard, with crossiants and cereal even if the crossoants were hard (other places i stayed gave out fresh ones!)
Understandably 3*

Although a great location, the staff were extremely unfriendly and unhelpful. The rooms were clean but very outdated and rather depressing! The beds (twin share) were very uncomfortable. There was barely any natural light and the air con was very noisy.

The room was quite big, although it was a single room, and very clean like the rest of the hotel. The receptionist was so kind and nice, a tipical "fiorentina".
The only thing I didn't appreciate at all was breakfast: small tables, no choice of hot drinks (just caffellatte and tea and one juice from a plastic can), no choice of food: just milk and cereals, no fresh fruit, bad quality croissants. And the waitress is so rude and loud: unbearable.
Go there but have breakfast outside!

A continuation of the previous review from filio p:

We would also like to give a special "Thank you" to Mr. Stefano Nibbi. During our stay Stefano was extremely helpful and kind in our of requests and needs and made our stay at the Martelli Hotel that much more enjoyable and pleasant. Along with the beautiful fresco art, Stefano is another reason we will gladly return to the Martelli next year!

If you enjoy fresco art, rooms 45, 46 & 47 have the best art...Go for it!
