Lungarno Vespucci 50

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 5 February 2017

Very high ceiling rooms, which makes them feel roomier than they actually are. Tiny, tiny shower/toilet ensuite, although very clean but with almost no space to lay out your stuff... Not a business hotel, hardly any room to put a laptop down. Tucked away just past the US consulate, which feels like an embassy given the amount of security around it... (Nice posting for those who get it!). Bed was comfortable, windows open up to the street or the courtyard, magnificent flowers in the flower beds outside the window. Courteous reception, with a free happy hour cocktail to be had in the garden or the small lounge off reception. Breakfast was held in a magnificent room off the second floor, and the lady serving coffee was a real peach, quite a selection off the buffet. It suited my purpose for two brief days in Florence before driving up north on my way to meet friends, walking distance from Hertz and very close taxi ride from the train station, but I wouldn't have stayed there if the purpose had been to spend a week in Florence with my wife...

Room Tip: Main floor rooms open up to the street, probably better views from the second floor

We stayed here for our honeymoon in September. When we got home we received a fine of 111 Euros from the police for driving on the street in front of the hotel (which is prohibited to drive on) while the car key was with the staff of the hotel. We have been emailing back and forth since September and the hotel only keep saying we are wrong and that we are lying! The hotel offered to split the fine with us, but should have taken full responsibility for this as the key was in their possession. The handling of this case has been poor and when speaking on the phone we got hung up on for calling the situation ridiculous. Which it absolutely is! This hotel is not taking customer service seriously as they are accusing their customers of lying. There are so many wonderful hotels in Florence, do NOT choose this one!

Good evening Mr Nikolaisen,

as explained to you already in 27 e-mail and 7 phone call (no kidding!) YOU have been passing beneath the ZTL camera without any comunication to our staff... not gonna go deeper as you keep ignoring the facts.

For any guests it is indeed possible to drive in front of the Hotel but IS A MUST and your responsability to inform the receptionist about the ZTL entrance.

We are glad that you like the Hotel thow.

In summary, we did not particularly enjoy our stay in this hotel. Let me give you pros and cons.
Pros: clean, good location, friendly staff.
Cons: Room did not resemble the room we saw the in the photos (much smaller), the bathrooms were quite dated and there was always a ton of water on the floor after a shower, and last the AC did not cool the room very well.

My wife and I have stayed in our fair share of five star hotels so this hotel definitely stood out to us, especially for the price.

Thankfully we decided to only stay there for 4 nights and then decided to stay at the Il Salviatino which was substantially more but well worth the price.

Good evening Mr Alghusain,

We are really glad that you appreciate the cleaness of our rooms, the location and the staff.
Unfortunately we can't compete against a 5 star Hotel as our Hotel itself cannot provide high-end services but we are more than welcome to help you wenever is possible!

We wish you a happy New Year!

Kind regards,

Hotel Lungarno Vespucci 50

Small charming hotel, personal is well trained, wonderful room with private balcony with Arno river view, bed is comfortable, room are impeccable. Breakfast was good, the area is in the city center but far away enough from the bustles.
