Excellent location, friendly and helpful staff - fantastic experience. My husband and 7 yr old stayed here in Jan and really enjoyed our stay. Only discovered free wine and nibbles 6.30-7.30 on the last night!!

Room Tip: we were on same level as reception and it was super quiet.

Yet another visit to this superb boutique hotel. We love it because of its position, near to trade show we were visiting, close to train station. We find it quiet, love the staff so helpful and the free glass of wine in the evening is a lovely touch. Breakfast is just right, rooms are spacious and temperature just right, we will be back there again in June 2014.

Room Tip: We can only write,about the triple rooms which are excellent.

Stayed from November 15th to 23rd and was very impressed. The location is so central, my 3rd floor room had a view of the dome, the staff are friendly, helpful and knowledgeable and I was a woman travelling alone so I felt very safe. Would recommend and plan to stay again.

Stayed here for one night Dec 28. Room for 4 (myself and 3 children age 25, 22, 18) had a queen bed and two twin beds. Hotel was in an excellent location on a very pretty, quaint street. Easy walk from train station. Several great restaurants right around the hotel. Easy walk to all museums. Front desk attendant was very friendly and helpful. He recommended a great restaurant for dinner: Guido's. Room was clean and spacious. Bathroom was very clean & modern. Hotel offered afternoon appetizers and wine which was a lovely treat. Breakfast was included and included pastries, cheese, breads, coffee, juice. No complaints about anything. Would definitely stay here again.

Great location if traveling by train as between SMN station and historic centre of town; five to ten minutes walk from each.

Staff were very friendly and helpful. Both receptionists we saw spoke fluent English. Room was clean. Not the biggest but it was the "economy" room. Still had plenty of space for beds, small desk, good sized wardrobe and ensuite bathroom. Breakfast room doubled as lounge/small bar (free drinks in evening).

Good value for money and I'd happily stay here again.

Room Tip: Front street can be a little noisy late evening. It did not give us a problem but I'd expect it...

Good location, close to numerous sites of interest and central to town, also near the train station. Very friendly staff, always cheerful and happy to help. Rooms very reasonable, nothing flash or fancy but above the 3* hotel rating and excellent for the price. Breakfast 7-10am included and also a free drink in the evening with simple nibbles. Very clean and tidy.

This is an excellent place to stay in Florence. We stayed here for 6 nights for a conference. The people is very nice, they change towels and clean room everyday. We stay in the room # 209 which is BIG and quite. Location very convenient to restaurant and main attractions. They can print any documents for you. You only need to send them an email, and they will print and bring it to your room. I can never expect more. You got more than you paid for!

Room Tip: Room number 209 is BIG

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Hotel Globus was completely renovated in June 2016. The new reception area, located on the street level of Via Sant'Antonino, is now connected to all rooms thanks to our new elevator. The new breakfast area overlooks a small courtyard with a nice vertical garden. Our staff is a mixture of all ages, languages, cultures and countries, always smiling and willing to offer you tips on places to visit, restaurants to try. They're always there for you. For what regards our location, it is definitely one of the key features of Globus. The proximity to all the Santa Maria Novella train station and all main attractions, including the Duomo, both major museums (Uffizi and Accademia Galleries) or Ponte Vecchio, among others, makes it very easy to plan even the busiest day without the need to lose time getting from the hotel to your desired location. What makes our neighbourhood special though is definitely the Mercato Centrale, located just around the corner from here. In the morning, that is where you want to go if you're planning to buy some food to take back home, or simply want to try the famous Tuscan specialties, "trippa" and "lampredotto". Where this place shines though is the 1st floor, open from 10am until midnight. It's a big, modern open space with many restaurants, serving a variety of really delicious food. Make sure to check it out! ... more   less
