This hotel is located at walking distance from the rail station and old downtown. I stayed there to use as a hub to visit Florence and Siena.More

We were travelling by car in Italy and decided to stay outside of Florence instead of dealing with parking. The Art Milano Hotel had easy street parking and was a few blocks from the train taking us to Florence. The hotel itself was fine with a clean lobby and a clean room, nice balcony that had a nice view of the river that ran by the hotel. The breakfast was fine--all the usual hot and cold items on the buffet. The only thing is the room was not warmly decorated--kind of institutional as though I was having a meal in a hospital cafeteria. Front desk was fine although we tried to negotiate a better price and they wouldnt budge on price. Sent us to an amazing restaurant for dinner which we returned to the following night it was so good. Also, the trains to Florence were frequent and we did get to downtown Florence in just 20 minutes.
Ok...the front desk and staff were so nice but this place was so depressingly bad. It smelled, the blanket and pillows were older than I am and the carpet stained. Just drive through.
We are deeply sorry and astonished to realize you have a so bad opinion regarding our hotel, even because, as you can see in other reviews, fortunately, it is not the general opinion!
Allow us to disappoint: our hotel do not bad smell, our blanket and pillows are not brand-new, but certainly not old and we change linen every day!
We are really sorry you did not like our hotel and that probably you won't come back, we however cheer up, seen that we have a very significant number of regular Guests, which come back many times in a month for business to our hotel and enjoy their stay!

Wonderful service, staff, and food! The shower is a bit small though (appox. 2.5ft by 2.5ft). Despite that, I would HIGHLY recommend this hotel
The bed in our room was broken when we checked in, and the staff were initally unwilling to do anything about it, until we attempted to locate another hotel to move to. They eventually replace the matresses with brand new ones and it was comfortable and large. The hotel is generally outdated and run-down. Our room had multiple marks on the walls, cigarette burns in the carpet (in a non-smoking room), rotting wood in the bathroom, and the shower was only functional as a hand-held device.
We have been really surprised reading your post; we remember the problem you had with the room we initially gave you, but our staff was very helpful solving immediately the problem with the bed putting brand new mattresses in your room and after this you seemed to be satisfied and you didn't make other claims to us.
We are deeply sorry that your stay in our hotel has not been as you imagined, but we really hope you will give us the possibility to host you again to try to change your opinion.
