“Great stay!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2012

Got to Florence with no reservations and no idea where to stay. Met the owner Mario atthe train station where he walked us to his hotel and showed us the rooms. We fell in love with the Rezidenza Millinium as soon as we saw it. The rooms are beautiful with antique furniture and amazing original frescos on the ceilings. The hotel is located in walking distance from the train station and all of the major attractions including the Duomo, the Galleria Academia and the Uffizi Gallery. Mario and Cecelia the owners were very helpful and gracious hosts and recommended excellent resteraunts and things to see. I would recommend the millinium to anyone that is looking for an affordable and centrally located place to stay while visiting Florence.

Room Tip: All of the rooms we were shown we're very nice. We chose the double that faced the Duomo.

We booked this accommodation through hostel bookers or another online site and it wasn't until we were on the train from Rome to Florence and read the trip advisor comment which concerned but we still went ahead with the booking.

We have had an excellent experience here and the staff have been really great. I think for the price it offers a very convenient location ( train station & major sites), sizable room (we experience two as they upgraded us for the first two night), air conditioning, comfortable beds and pillows, and some nice restaurants closely located.

As some people have mentioned it is a little noisy but nothing you can't sleep through.

I felt it necessary as I think the representation of this property for the price is presently misrepresented on trip advisor if you read the older comments

Enjoy

I stayed 2 nights right before Easter...its a great location and the room is clean but facing the street so there was all the noise from the street...I am an early raiser so it was ok.
The only down side I see is that they could have a little fridge in the rooms also they don't offer any place to sit around or to meet. Access to the second floor is a bit difficult specially if you have huge bags which thank God i didnt !!
The MArco person could be not very people oriented and I was charged some cash for what seemed to be a scam surcharge I heard some hostels do to recover the VAT...overall it was an Ok experience. There are other places more affordable and available depending on the time..lts just say it was not a regret but i could have done better

We stayed at this place for 5 nights and we absolutly loved it. The room was realy beautiful, the bed was comfy and it had a exellent bathroom.
And since we hate staying at untidy places, we just loved that this was so clean and well organised.

The owner was very helpful and friedly, he gave us a lot of good advice were to have the best food, places to visit etc etc.

We would definatly rekommend this place, and when you read the bad reviews, we dont think we been to the same place. We are definatly comming back next time we are in Florence! :)

The BIGGEST MISTAKE of my life. After reaching the hotel, we were met with the a very rude staff member (Marco) who treated us terribly. After sensing our displeasure he offered to cancel the stay and return the money which I had paid on arrival. We were more than happy to do that. After reaching home I realized that he had deducted a day's amount as cancellation fee even after saying he won't. I have written to the police, my bank and hostel world. This is cyber crime !!!!!

I would hardly call this a hotel,as there are NO,hotel amenities.I looks like some one took an old building and turned one floor into rooms.

It is also on a very noisy corner,and you need to plug your ears ,to get any sleep.
Once again,I find that free wi fi,only extends to the lobby although they advertise it to be through out the "hotel".
It is really sad,that when you are on a budget,you end up,in places like this.

Dear Sir,
we are sorry that you are not happy with your accomodation.
We just wonder though how is it possible that you couldn't sleep because of the noise if you did not even spend the night here when you posted your review??
You arrived here on july 3rd afternoon and you posted your review few minutes after.That shows a lot about how fair your review might be. Also, we would like to remind you that the website you used to book here never listed us as if we were a hotel, you can go on our webpage on that site and easily notice that we have no star rating. Some websites gave us star rating because of the amenities we have but never because we claimed them. I am sure you can't deny we have rooms with private bathrooms, towels and soaps are provided, aircon, tv flat screen and inwall safe in every room. We forgot to metion we also have wifi that you claim did not work in your room but obviously allowed you to post your review! If all the amenities we have are not enough for you I guess you shouldn't travel budget!! We try to make all our guest happy of their choice when they come here but we guess you decided not to like us way before experiencing at least one night here.By the way since you are used to higher standards in your choice of accomodation we ask you please not to walk shoesless through the corridors as we noticed by reviewing our security camera system you did several times.

Stayed here for 3 nights whilst in Florence, found the place overall excellent value for money with very friendly staff and clean large bright rooms. Positives- very secure, clean (think it has been recenlty renovated), quiet. Negatives- may be a little out of the way for some about a 10 minute stroll into the center of Florence (we diodn't find this a problem at all).
