Quadra Key Residence

Reviewed April 9, 2013

Florence is an amazing city, and this hotel provides a comfortable and pleasant retreat. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and the kitchenette is indeed a pleasure to use. However individuals and f\groups travelling on business will find the absence of a hotel restaurant serving breakfast a bit of a drawback. If you are travelling with family and wish to cook for yourselves then i guess things can work out fine. An enjoyable stay overall, but we had to travel into the city centre to actually enjoy the city.

We booked into quadra key at the last minute because of a weather related cancellation and booking over the phone was easy, the staff speak very good english. We also got upgraded because we visited in winter and our flat was huge with a large outdoor patio for use in summer. The furnishing were done to a good standard and the kitchen was well stocked. It's an easy bus ride on the 22 bus straight to the Santa Maria Maggiore church.

The rest of tuscany is also pretty accessible by car. The route out with our satnav went very very close to the ZTL and had us quite worried, so if you can, take the longer route via the autostrada.

Parking is not included in the price though, something we didn't realize earlier, but it is pretty economical for short stays at 10 euros a day.

An excellent budget yet quality solution, which is only a 15 minutes ride from the railway station by bus, and hence another 5 minutes walking to get to the historical centre. All purpose shops as well as restaurants nearby.

Reception staff speak perfect English. The room was a huge Studio Apartment with a kitchenette area and balcony overlooking the local residential area. The kitchen was fully kitted out and the bathroom was also large. There was a shower but not a bath.However the shower was fantastic. The decor was very pretty pretty but it was very clean and fresh and the bed was extremely comfortable. Our room was on the 5th floor and the front balcony looked out across to the mountains with the main road below although we heard no noise from inside our room. The bus stop into town was 50 yards away and ran every 10 minutes and the 15 minute ride was cheap. There were a few pizzarias nearby and a supermarket in the road behind the apartments. Secure parking and wifi facilities available.

Booked 2 bedroom apartment with separate living room and kitchen. We were 2 families and it was just right. Payed less then in a normal hotel, but still got everything like in a 4 star hotel - 24 hours reception, car parking, room cleaning, minibar, free wifi, AC etc. The front desk is 24h available and welcoming.
The centre is 20 min by bus, and the nearest bus stop just 5 min. walk. In front of the hotel is a normal grocery store to bye food and drinks, very convenient if you have your own kitchen.
Only disadvantage - the shower and bathroom are together and for 4 people it's not so convenient specially in mornings :)

Room Tip: Ask for higher floors
