“Quiet and Comfortable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

If you are looking for a quiet place tucked away in the corner of Florence, this is your place. Convenient trains and mono rails get you around the city. Or a 30 minute walk gets you anywhere. The hotel is situated half way between the two major tourist areas - but it is removed from both of them so the ambiance is quiet. The staff is friendly and helpful and willing to work with your schedule however necessary. The restaurant menu is extensive and the cooks are excellent

Room Tip: All rooms are equally nice in this hotel

We stayed at this hotel from July 3-5 as part of an Insight Vacation tour called the Italian Escapade. We had two rooms booked as I was travelling with my husband and 2 children aged 14 and 11. Very modern, new and clean. Just what I would expect from a Marriott Hotel. Also very quiet area so you will sleep well. My husband is a Gold Marriott member so it was nice to have free wi-fi, as not all hotels in Italy offer that. Wonderful and helpful staff. Also the dinner and breakfast were very good. I would highly recommend this hotel!

Room Tip: I always choose higher floors!

It's an average hotel in a boring quarter of a magnificent city. Approximately 15 minutes walk to all the sights,and a couple of minutes in a cab from Santa Maria Novella Station,which should cost no more than €10.

If you are not used to drive yourself in Italy and you do not want to get in touch with the narrow tiny lanes of the historical city center it is best to use this hotel. Easy to reach from the airport if you have a GPS and they have a garage of their own. Hotel is modern and nice and since there is no more train operation in front of the hotel it's quite calm. The staff members were very nice and helpful and we loved the breakfast. Only you should ask verbally for some cappucino from the barista-machine if you dislike the Caffe Americano from the dispenser.

AC Marriott Firenze is a very clean & modern-looking hotel with reasonable room size and very comfortable bed. The concierge staff was very knowledgeable and helpful. The hotel is slightly outside of historic center, but you could walk in 15 min to the train station or 20 minutes to the old town. The breakfast buffet was very good with sufficient variety and high-quality food (3 cold meats, scrambled eggs, bacon, 3 fresh fruits, 3-4 fresh juices, some cheeses, cereals, yogurts, a few types of pastries, coffee, tea). Depending on the staff, food may not be replenished during the last 15-20 minutes of breakfast hours.

On the minus side, the walls were rather thin where one could be aware of very loud conversation without hearing the words. Closet as well as bathroom counter had limited space. We spent 7 nights as Platinum members but did not get upgraded for a single night.

The AC Firenze gives you the space and comfort you'd expect of a Marriott property. The decor is extremely stark/modern (lots of black/white and glass) which isn't the coziest but certainly stylish. Bathroom was the biggest & nicest we experienced in Italy :)
Location was good; just outside the most tourist-intense center but a straight easy walk along the Arno to it. Neighborhood seems to have lots of students - definitely a change from the typical tourist crowds.

Room Tip: An upper floor that faces the river will give you a nifty view of the new opera house.

This hotel is quite nice. Rooms are modern and we were upgraded due to Gold Status with Marriott. Guido was very helpful and have us good local are info. The others at front desk, not so much. King size bed was nice given it's not common in Europe. Breakfast buffet is very good. We arrived late and tried walking to Florence proper but about 5 min into walk we turned around because area is sketchy at night. We are dinner in hotel restaurant. My Caesar salad (14 euros- way over priced) was disappointing at best in flavor and and taste. There were maybe 6-8 small pieces of chicken on it. I ordered an Aperol Spritz and was charged 11 euros. Way overpriced for what it was. If hotel had a better location I could see asking $$ for food but the area doesn't warrant the high price of menu, only the Marriott brand name did.
Walk to downtown Florence from hotel is about 15 minutes.
