“great place!”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

We found Mia Cara a great place to stay. The room size and bathrooms were all great. Initially we did not realise we were staying here as we had booked for a private room at the Hostel Archi Rossi which ended up at the co-owned hotel next door. The breakfast was great with a wide variety to select from. We found the staff quite helpful and they helped arrange some tours for us. Wi-Fi access was good and the room had its own computer which was a big plus.

The location of this hotel is perfect, as good as you'll get in Florence, and the price for such a location is more than fair. The rooms are clean and spacious and have all the facilities you'd expect from a 3-star hotel.

There are a number of problems though: the breakfast is definitely below average for an Italian 3-star hotel. The elevator in this place is meant only for taking up your luggage and doesn't really work properly. Also you are given old-fashioned keys to your room so you need to give them to the reception if you want to go anywhere.

The main problem we encountered was that none of the staff spoke English (we tried speaking to all of them), and one of the staffers (I think he's a manager) pretended to speak English and ended up giving us incorrect instructions regarding directions and car rental, which ended up costing us hours and very nearly costing a lot of extra money. It's true that very few Italians speak English, but you'd expect at least one person in a hotel to speak it, and if they don't—not to pretend to understand what you're saying.

Booked a room via The Archi Rossi hostel -if you want a private room, they put you up next door in Mia Cara. We had a double private room. Amazing location close to SMN and the Duomo (but what isn't close in Firenze?!). Door opened up to an all tile floor landing area. 4 piece bathroom off of that and then stairs up to the tiled, loft style bedroom. Included modern fast PC for private use and TV with a billion channels. Super nice staff. Breakfast was amazing, included eggs and meats along with continental style and tons of desserts!!! An amazing place and would stay here again, even if this place was located back home!!!

First of all, why this hotel is marked as in Chianciano Terme when it is actually in Florence? The street address is right, but the town is wrong. Anyway, we stayed here one night and the position was very useful close to the main rail station and to the city centre. The room was spacious and clean and with the basic needs (fridge was empty). Bathroom was clean but the toilet seat was broken and there were only a couple of soap bars, no shampoo or shower gel. Breakfast is basic with croissant, bread and jam and some other small things. We enjoyed the bkfast in the outside garden. Good value hotel.
