  • The location is great and the Villa Florence is half a block from Union square. The hotel staff is fantastic and the lobby is impressive. Bathrooms have been renovated, also, the elevators are small also and kind of tight, s restaurant next door is a real plus.

    Administrative fee", the rooms are tiny and facing the street are noisy during the night.

  • Location to Union Square and historic hotel. The price was perfect and staff were great. Bed was very comfortable, the mirror had large smudges on and one of my favourite restaurants was just downstairs.

    Does not worth the value and dated Building. Street noise sink slow draining and the bathroom is too small. Pillows could be better.
