I couldn't have asked for more. Most importantly, as a solo female traveler, the staff was incredibly helpful and the hotel was very safe. The rooms were clean and aesthetic, although fairly bare and small. I overlooked a church, and was awoken to the wonderful sound of church bells in the morning. Also, as opposed to some places, the breakfast was plentiful.
The staff was great! I ate stupendously well in Florence, largely thanks to insider recommendations from the front desk staff.
I would definitely stay at Hotel Globus, again.
- 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.
