We were scheduled to stay here for 4 nights by a travel agent. We left after only one night. The first room we were given already had someone in it. The second one was so bad we complained about the moldy shower curtain, tiny bathroom (3 feet wide by 10 feet long), poor lighting and being located right beside the...

My family and i went to Florence in June to spend some time in contact with art. We found this hotel that was very close to the centre , that's very comfortable. The rooms were very clean and they have the needful things for a family. The staff was very kind and helpful, they answer every question we made. The...

This was in Rick Steve's book, so I booked it based on that. Unfortunately, in his newer version of the book, he refers to the area as "sketchy". The hotel is just blocks from the train station and very close to the Accademia where David is located. We liked that the room was huge as was the bath. But it's...

We had saved up for a long time to visit Florence. We went into our room and the air conditioning did not work. We spoke to the staff who checked the computer and said it was working. They gave us a fan and said it was a hot night. The heat became more unbearable and we complained again and were...

This hotel was the best one we had stayed at in Italy. The hotel is neat, pretty and clean. The receptionist Francesca is a honey and she was so helpful with anything we asked her, even with helping track down my lost luggage. The other receptionist (a young asian guy) was also very friendly and helpful. There's a guest computer...

They gave us the room for the handicapped. It was spacious but so dimly lighted we could hardly see to read anything or do anything easily. The bathroom was very large and adequate. The windows looked out on the piping area so there was only enough light to let in that showed whether it was day or night. The air...

The Galileo Hotel in Florence is close to train station and San Lorenzo outdoor market. It is about 5 minute walk to everything. The rooms are abit small, but enough room for the amount of time you are in them. The breakfast could use some fruit, but is enough. I enjoy talking to the staff, Gorigo is the best! I...

The main advantage of this hotel is it's close proximity to the main train station, which is about a five minute walk away. The property is well maintained and rooms were comfortable and reasonably priced. When we were there it was quite hot but the air conditioning wasn't working -- something about a filter requiring changing which I couldn't quite...
