              my daughter and i stayed here for 2 nights, this is a beautiful hotel in central location with light classical colours and a designer look, quiet and very clean, a proper suite with a separate sitting area, bathroom in marble was a dream, even supplied with sun umbrellas which we did use and look great in photos, staff very friendly and helpful, breakfast was excellent, great restaurant on piazza republica at decent price, will definitely return

              It's a wonderful location and beautifully run. The staff could not have been more helpful and charming.

              Access by car is difficult and should be researched before arrival as the hotel is in a traffic limited zone. Once there however the valet service is excellent.

              Location & Bed are good, but please read our review below. I rate this hotel max 4 star because its new and for location! Hotel Porta Rossa is for sure much much better then this and better priced and better staff en better breakfast ( everything fresh )

              Were to start?! When we arived in the night because of flight delay a very moody porter that did not even offered to put our bags somewere. We then took them to them to our rooms ourselfs because he was bussy with beeing moody! ( normaly in 5 star the porter brings them to your room ) When we saw the room we were very disapointed because for the shower you had to step 1 meter down from floor level in a bath with only 1.80 hight to shower ( I am 1.93 ) so no good shower for me. It's very, very dangerous to step down like that and to climb back on wet floor. When we asked for a new room, the lady from reception started to argue that she likes the room and told us we have to be lucky with the room. We just walked away because this was so very rude to tell your guests to (f) off and leave me alone. Breakfast very poor ( old bread ) Orange out of a pack?! And charge of 6.00 for 1 boiled egg ?? We will never ever sleep there again.....

            • Group of friends

              Hotel was expensive but we wanted to stay somewhere that was quiet and had a comfotable bed. We accomplished this and more!

              We traveled with 4 people (2 rooms), when we checked in, they gave us only one key per room. We needed 4 keys. I asked several times and they said they only give one key. This was very annoying! On the last day, we were woke up by hammering noises at 9am. The hotel said they were "installing ac for the summer". I told them for the price of the room, they should start at 12:00 not 9:00. Other than that, a very nice hotel & very comfotable. Non-smoking hotel which is very nice.

              The location, the breakfast and the design

              Although it s very well located it is absolutely impossible to arrive if you re driving , the way we found - after driving for two hours and possibly breaking a few traffic rules, like driving through restricted areas etc -was to leave the car in a parking and take a cab. . Also we needed a second bed but the staff politely denied so our kid had to sleep with us.We felt they did not try too hard to solve our problem.

              The hotel is only one year old and part of it are remains of a 15th century tower. It is straight in the center of Firenze, very close to the important historic places and the shopping district. The rooms are very much noise-proof and so: absolutely quiet.
