Conference Florentia Hotel
Ranked #356 of 410 Hotels in Florence
Reviewed 19 December 2014

The hostile reviews of this hotel are understandable. It no longer has the Sheraton franchise, and is not really a four star hotel at the moment, given the lack of a laundry serice, minibar etc and the delapidated state of the access road. BUT this still has qualities. The staff are very helpful and professional, the restaurant provides good and authentic Tuscan food, the rooms are big and comfortable, the lobby has free wifi which works etc. What is more with the hotel's shuttle bus or a taxi one can be at Piazza Beccaria, and thus a pleasant stroll into the city centre, within ten minutes, without all the noise and human pollution of staying in the centre itself. Alternatively, if you have a car, Greve in Chianti and the other small towns of Chianti Classico are within easy drive, and one of the best golf courses in Italy, at Ugolino, is even nearer. This is an opportunity crying out for intelligent investment, which could make the hotel a very pleasant and attractive option, especially for business travellers and conferences, given its proximity to the Firenze Sud autostrada exit. Until that happens, room prices are low for what you get.
My wife and I had to stay there unexpectedly after she was hospitalised, and we appreciated the peace and quiet, the helpfulness of the staff - and the food.

Room Tip: If you want a double bed be sure to specify. The views from the front side if the hotel are the best

When you see Sheraton written, you expect certain amenities and some class. This surely doesn't do justice to the name. The lobby is huge, but not so welcoming! The room where we stayed was clean, the linen and toiletries were okay. A tile in the bathroom was broken, it was not a sight to behold!
No free wifi..
The room had no amenities. The old television wasn't entertaining enough. The breakfast spread wasn't good. But the energy of the restaurant manager was exceptional, he was a little noisy though...
Overall it looks like an old place, needs a lots of renovation.

This hotel is just a bit past its prime (think '80s style dark wood, marble and leather), but it was still very comfortable. The staff were exceptionally professional and helpful with directions and suggestions for things to do in Florence. The rooms were spotless, the beds were very comfortable. The views from the windows of Florence and the Tuscan hills were amazing! They offer a nice shuttle bus service to Florence though the timing was a bit restrictive for us. The breakfast buffet had a decent variety. One sour note: given the price, I thought the lack of free wifi was a bit ridiculous.

My husband and I stayed here for our visit to Florence. If you have a car this place is a nice base to see the city and have a quiet environment for a restful stay without being too close to the hustle and bustle. I would recommend this place to those who are traveling in the area with a car and didn't feel the need to stay in the middle of the action.

Room Tip: All the views are nice, but try to get one with a view of Florence!

After spending a couple of nights at the Quality Rouge etNoi also known as the garbage pail inn in Rome, we were more than happy with this hotel. the hotel is well kept, the grounds are nice, and shower has hot water that stays hot longer than 10 seconds. the front desk attendants were very helpful and friendly(they were American's..go figure) and the hotel had an excellent bar and shuttle to take you into town. If you're looking for a great location, you may want to avoid thsi one. but if you're looking for a nice, comfortable hotel, then this is a good choice. overall, this was a great experience. and I took the bath slippers as a souvenir(shhhhh, don't tell anyone).
