This hotel was awesome. Stayed in room 132, and had a very large bathroom with a bathtub and a separate shower and real towels. Our window faced the courtyard, no street noise at all and we woke to the sound of birds chirping. Parking the car in the courtyard made it very safe and secure. Beds were comfortable, a little firm, but not bad. Breakfast was really good and we could get tea/coffee on our own. There is also an outdoor area for breakfast. The staff spoke English well. They had great recommendations for local cuisine and could make suggestions based on what you wanted to pay. Also, they were very helpful with printing our museum reservations and suggestions to atypical tourists sites. Spa services were also available through the hotel. Less than a 5 minute walk to Santa Maria Novella, a 10 minute walk to the Duomo, Galleria Academia, and maybe 15 minutes to the Uffizi, Bargelo, and Ponte Vecchio. Tons of shopping and cafes/restaurants nearby. We loved our stay, felt very safe and would still be there if we could. If we are able to go back to Florence we would stay there again. Great Hotel!

This place is very well located. Walking distance from the station and nice shops around for shopping too. The receptionist was excellent help, she knew the ways around, bus routes, etc...she was very helpful and full of energy.

The hotel is ideally situated to the railway station within walking distance. It is also within walking distance of all the main sights in the city. We stayed on the second floor which had all the rooms modernised. The breakfast was standard but more than adequate and the room was quiet. The hotel staff were friendly and recommended some good restaurants without being asked. Good service I would certainly return to this hotel again.

My wife and i spent three nights in the Cosimo de Medici. We really enjoyed Florence and couldn't have asked for a better located hotel. It is a few minutes walk from the Santa Maria Novella train station (where we arrived on the train from Rome) absolutely everything you could hope to see in Florence is within about 15 minutes walk from this hotel. This is a very good hotel which i would have no problem recomending to a friend- the only reason it doesn't get four stars is because the bathroom in our room was really, really small. Other than that the staff were very friendly and helpful, the room was clean and quiet, breakfast was good, free internet access. Great value and service all round!

I must say that the service from the staff at this hotel was wonderful. Front desk staff spoke English, thankfully. Communication via e-mail was very helpful.The precious young lady made reservatons for museums and a tour to a winery in Chianti, saving us hours of waiting. Our quad room for four ladies was spacious and clean. Could use some higher wattage light bulbs, but that is the case in many places. An adequate
breakfast was included. Two blocks from the train station. A good value for the money.

The hotel is located perfectly on walking distance from the Santa Maria Novella railwaystation as well as all the sights in the old part of Florence. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the breakfast is fairly good, the only thing I missed was a selection of fresh fruit. The personal is extraordinary friendly and helpful, quite in their own class.
