It wasn't our favorite, but it is clean and quiet (for the most part). Walls are on the thinner side so people in the hall sound like they are at your door. It's about a 20min walk from the main train station but about a 5-10 from the smaller out skirt station. The breakfast was not the best, we basically...

Way to far from the city. Very out of date. Very hard beds. Very thin walls. We found a new hotel after we were told that the restaurants near by were all closed and that there was a grocery store two blocks away......It was a Friday night at 6pm.

Thank you for writing a review about your short stay. Sorry for all the problems you found. It seems that you did not reported the problems encountered during the stay, you just made a quick check-out. The reception is at disposal 24/7 to solve all problems as possible, but we need to be informed immediatly. About the closed restaurants, we...

We stayed here for 3 nights and tried to extend our stay an extra two (on a days notice) and, not surprisingly, it was fully booked. It is a good hotel. All be it a little dated, the rooms are clean, beds made everyday, and the bathroom is good quality and also clean. It's not amazing but it is everything...

The hotel room had this strange sound and was poorly designed. The hotel itself was situated 30 minutes from the inner city in a neighborhood where nothing happened. It was decent value for the money but will definetely not recommend it. The breakfast was also boring.

Hotel Select is a decent place, located about 20 mins walking distance from Santa Maria Novella train station, in a residential area... there is of course a bus stop located nearby but we walked up to the city center all the time.. though it was at times a bit tiring especially walking back to the hotel in the night after...

Dear Ahmedabadhermit Thank you for your review. well it describes our hotel, how to get to the center, the rooms, the type of breakfast. You see that you've been paying close attention to our impersonal front desk. Cheers!

Reviewed 21 May 2016 via mobile

Good clean hotel. Breakfast is decent. However, if you like sleeping in late do not get room 106 or 105. Unless of course you like hearing all the problems of the staff as they chatter away endlessly. The rooms are lokated behind the reception, and you hear everything!

This hotel is somewhat close to the centre in fact It's just 4 bus stops away from Stazione Sta. Maria Novella Tren via bus. You have to walk about 5mins from the bus stop and going to the city you have to walk probably about 10mins. But most buses on the stops will take you to the city anyway. Close...

My wife and I recently stayed here during our tour throughout Tuscany. The room was clean, bed was comfortable, and the bathroom was well equipped. The breakfast was quite tasty and provided a nice/quick option to start our day without the hassle of having to go out and find a place to eat every morning. That said, the location is...

We booked this hotel on the edge of Florence but a 20 minute walk into the centre as it was a fair price with good transportation and a walking distance to all the sights and restaurants and bars. Nice clean room, and basic breakfast...did the job for us...
