“Excellent for the price”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

Despite being up a few flights of stairs, we found the hotel basic and small, but comfortable. We had a nice room, with a window/view, 5 minutes walk from the train station and from the Duomo. Excellent location. The facilities are old and not super, but I was pleasantly surprised by it given that it's one of the cheapest options in Florence.

Hotel Deco was perfect for me! It is in a great location, is clean and the staff is very helpful and pleasant. The place is not in perfect condition, but if you're in Florence, what are you doing hanging out in your hotel anyway?

Hotel Deco is located about halfway between Santa Maria Novella and Piazza del Duomo, so for us it was a fantastic location. Be aware that there is no lift, you will have to climb some stairs. Our room was on the third floor. The receptionist who checked us in was very friendly. Even though we arrived several hours before our designated check-in time she told us the room was ready early so we were able to go in right away. The room was simple but nice. Our bed was two twin beds pushed together but it didn't bother us; the bathroom was nice, though the shower nozzle was hose style and there is no hook to set it in so you have to constantly hold the nozzle (my fiancee said felt like she was washing a car or grooming a dog). In the evenings we would leave to window open to cool the room down, and in the morning we would have some mosquito bites, so beware of that too. Our window looked out on a small area in the back of the building with air conditioning and ventilation shafts, but there was no loud noises or anything else that bothered us, and we hadn't expected a room with a view for the price we paid. We also paid for the breakfast which was fine: pastries and rolls, dry cereal (corn flakes, rice puffs and cocoa puffs I think), sliced cheese and meats, milk, juice, water, and a machine that makes different types of coffee (all of which pale in comparison to the authentic Italian coffees that you can get once you leave the hotel). Overall we were very happy with Hotel Deco; conveniently located between the train station and the Duomo, Hotel Deco offers perfectly acceptable accomadations for very reasonable rates.

Hotel Deco, although rated as a 2 star hotel, is a 5 star hotel in the category of hospitality! The staff was very friendly and accomodating, which if you are a traveler, especially from another country, you welcome a smiling face after a long day of sight-seeing. Located right in the center of the city, just a stones throw from the train station, bus stop, and an anxiously awaiting line of taxi cabs, public transportation is at your fingertips. The sights of Florence are accessable by foot as long as you wear good shoes. (The streets of most of Italy are comparable to cobblestone, hard on the feet and ankles!) It is an older building but is maintained with new windows, and updated bathrooms. It is comfortable and you do feel safe and secure. We did not eat breakfast at the hotel so I cannot comment on that. If you choose not to eat there you will find somewhere to eat approximately every 20 feet you walk in Florence. I was amazed with the amount of food! If you are more interested in luxurious accomodations than the Hotel Deco may not meet your standards but if you are a traveler who would prefer to save on lodging because you are really only there to rest, my reccommendation is the Hotel Deco. It is most definitely a great choice for very affordable accomodations in Florence.

this hotel is absolut optimal situated , a 2 minutes walk from the railway station.The attractions of Firenze are all in short walking distance, Restaurants are plenty in the neighbourhood, as a lot of shops.
The hotel is clean staff is friendly and helpfull. The included breakfast is ok but not more than average. I can recommend this location for a stay up to a week for sightseeing

the hotel is fine, but quite old. Breakfast is not very good, no fruit, not fresh bakery. People at reception are helpful. I have asked a quit room and the room was quite indeed. The furniture in the room is old, there is a bit smelly in the common areas in the hotel, but it is fine in the room.

Thank you for telling us about your experience. I'm sure there are still many things we can do better and we will, also with the help of all of you who provides good suggestions!
We serve a continental breakfast with ham, cheese, yogurt, cereals, juice, coffee, tea, milk,butter, jam, honey, croissants and bread ordered each day from the bakery. It's always sad when someone is not happy about our services. We are a 2 stars hotel, this is a classical breakfast.

The entrance is so modest it is easy to miss; it certainly gives no indication of the quality of what is to be found up a couple of flights of stairs. My room appeared to be newly refurbished to a high standard, with an ensuite worthy of a 4* hotel. The room was clean, spacious and comfortable, beneath the authentically historic Tuscan roof. I met three different members of staff at reception during my stay and all were very helpful. I have no hesitation in recommending Hotel Deco to any traveller wanting comfort but travelling on a tight budget.
