    great location, right at the heart of Florence

    Albergo Firenze is an average hotel the room was decorated (?) with old furniture, the place definitely needs serious renovation, the breakfast was rather poor, overpriced for the services provided

    Exceptional

    We enjoyed our stay at Albergo Firenze very much! The location was fantastic! It was very clean. The receptionist Barbara was particularly helpful and professional. I would not hesitate to recommend Albergo Firenze!

    The only complaint we had was the shower doors needed some repair.

    The location, but this is not a point for the hotel, because Florence is really small, and all the hotels are near from everywhere.

    The worst room, and the worst hotel that I was ever and ever.

    Very good

    Location is excellent, so close to all places you want to see and shops, all in walking distance. Good breakfast It had a lift!!, as some hotels you have to walk up stairs.

    The Shower was a bit small

    I liked the staff at the hotel. They were very informative and helpful. I did not know about the curfew of car in this old city but the staff managed to help me sort out our car problem. I like the location of this hotel as it was very near the shopping area (by my standards because we were so tired of walking already). There are a couple of good restaurants very near this hotel. The rooms were fair.

    No internet in the rooms.

    Fabulous

    Easy to find, the Taxi driver knew about the place. Cenrally located and witin walking distance to the train station and most other points of interest. Front Desk Staff was friendly and spoke English very well (We did not have an opportunity to speak to the other staff). Elevator was available to go to the floor where the room was, no need to walk up the stairs. Clean inside and out, very presentable and inviting. In the room, the windows (2 of them) could be closed so if the street noise was not desired we could simply close them and not hear it.

    Internet access was available, however, not in a room on the 3rd floor. This is noted in the hotel information book in the room as well. In order to use the Wi-Fi we had to go down to the lobby/lounge area. Shower enclosure fell apart at one corner. No refrigerator in the room - would have been nice to have a small one

    I am a writer, 71 years old. I stayed in Albergo Firenze the first time in 1949, then I have stayed there in 1952,1953,1955,1958,1962,1964, and so forth. I have lived there for months, last the autumn 1981 and have written two of my novels there. Subsequently I have a very special affinity to this hotel. The simple not touristic style I have always appreciated, just as the location in the heart of the city. All this is of course still there

    I did not like the room I got, I did not like that it was worn down in a shabby way. The walls in the room were full of marks, lots of details did not function properly. Simply spoken: It had lost its old charm.

    The location was perfect - close to all of the major museums and significant historical and cultural sites. It was easy to go back and rest up before setting out for another destination. The staff were friendly, spoke English well, and were most helpful with suggestions for restaurants, side trips, etc. We stayed there for nearly a week at the beginning of our recent trip to Tuscany and again for a day before flying back to the US. We will definitely stay there on our next trip to Florence.

    Guest rating

    Practically nothing. The location (in the historic center of Florence) is the only good feature, but it cannot compensate for all the rest.

    Room: Filthy looking floor, covered with old dim tiles, stained at several places. The cheapest possible "furniture" (closet, drawers); three "murphy beds" with mattresses on, only two nightstands-two bed lamps. (The term "classic furnishings" in the room description is clearly misleading). No fridge or minibar to keep a cool drink! Not a single chair in the room!!! BATHROOM: Tiny, with a small shower, made smaller by the fact that half the washbasin was coming IN the shower. No way to use it without turning the whole place into a lake. No place to put the toothbrushes or anything else. The towels, though clean, always had an unpleasant odor. The same filthy, cheap appearance in the corridors and "lobby" (a hole with a table and three (or may be four) armchairs in a dark spot. BREAKFAST: Poor quality, poorer variety of breakfast. The one and only unfortunate person who was serving, collecting the used dishware and washing the dishes etc etc etc was trying really hard but that was far from enough. If you are not a group of up to 25-year-old backpackers, AVOID this hotel!!

    Superb

    The Albergo Firenze is best valued hotel during my trip in Italy, Austria and Swizeland. The location of hotel is fantastic and the staff are very friendly. It is just 10 minutes wlaking from railway station and 2 minutes walking to Duomo and other traveling spots such as Uffizi gallery etc. The only thing that I am not so satisfied is the internet cost is too high, caused me 3 Euro for 30 minutes in the lobby.

    Internet cost high.

  • 7.4
    Very good

    In the heart of Florence, the location is just great.

    We were staying on the 4th floor and we could hear everyone walking in the corridor and also on the 5th floor. The breakfast is quite poor compared to other places we stayed for the same price. The bread was not fresh, few slices of cheese, no ham, no yoghourt, low quality fruit juice. It would have have been better to get a price without breakfast.

    We love the location and the elevator. Staffs were unfriendly always anoy when asked question. Breakfast unimpressive

    Good

    Clean, central and reasonably priced and the staff were helpful

    - There was no iron available - the water was only hot in the mornings - some fruit at breakfast would have been great -I was uncomfortable about constantly having to pick up or drop off my room key as I came in and out quite a lot! However, the price was right and the position excellent.
