Nilhotel
Ranked #190 of 410 Hotels in Florence
Reviewed 11 June 2014

This hotel was a one night stop on an Italian tour. The room was very nice and large. Front desk staff was friendly and helpful. The room had a balcony with a view of an industrial site- not good. The breakfast was poor.. If you are in for business or one night it would be ok but I recommend staying closer to city center if wanting to get a great Florentine experience.

this hotel is located only 7 minutes from the airport. They say its 4 star....i would go for 3+ at max

its a rather big hotel. More like an airport hotel then anything else.

Rooms are spacious. Bathroom looks rather basic.

Internet is free and fast

Breakfast is OK

Location is the worst. Not to be used for a quick city break.

On arrival the area surrounding the hotel isn't so appealing. The hotel is inside its own gated grounds with good parking facilities & pleasant outside seating areas. It's adjacent to GE/Nuovo Pignone which for me was great but close to the airport & Florence so perfect.
The hotel is big with 7 floors figuring the room numbers wasn't the simplest thing 'odds & evens' but fine once sorted.
The style is very late 80's but that shouldn't detract, the hotel is very clean & well maintained. Staff are excellent, friendly, courteous and helpful. The room was fairly large with a firm bed, it included a safe & a mini bar which they also invited you to put your own things if you wanted. Bathroom was fine with a good shower, window shutters & aircon kept the room cool.
Breakfast was great with lots of choice cereal, fruit, meats, cheese even scrambled egg & bacon
Things they don't tell you:- wifi is extended to the rooms & is fast enough for Skype or FaceTime, the hotel has a small gym in the basement & the meeting facilities are good. Taxi to the airport or Florence is about 14€ if you book at the hotel specify if you want to pay by card as not all taxis take them.

I stayed here on a two day business trip in early May. Basically the hotel is large, with nineties decor, and very little intrinsic charm. A favourite with coach tours to Florence.

The staff are very friendly, and given how busy breakfast gets at peak times (I.e. When the coach parties group to feed) the food on offer is if a good standard.

The bedroom walls however are paper thin, the floors marble, so you are unlikely be able to get to sleep whilst anyone else within 2 rooms is still awake! Quality sleep is my principle ask of a hotel, thus my low score.

We have stayed in mid april 2014 and were very satisfied. The rooms are large and comfortable. Parking is on site. The breakfast was very rich and fresh. We travelled here in our trip in Italy. If you come accross by car it is very comfortable as you can access Michaelangelo Plaza in 20-25 minutes and then head to the city center by foot. Very recommended!

Room Tip: Very recomended if you visit Florence by car. The hotel is modern, clean and nice stay is guaranteed...

Nil hotel is four stars hotel located in Florence. It is very closed to airport. It is not in center and quite far from center of Florence but it is more or less like business hotel and it is quite busy but there is some things special about this hotel room size is adequate and frankly room is much more bigger than five stars hotel allocated in center of Florence. Also there is free parking inside hotel and it is very near big supermarkets so for daily need every things is within walking distances. Apart of that there is mall nearby. Also there is very easy access to center by Bus for daily use.

Again Room size was very big compare with Florence hotels rooms size. Bed was standard nothings special with bed however it was enough for two person only. TV was ok. Bed was good. Bathroom was also Ok and furniture was good. In general it was good and very clean. For solo traveller it is more than enough. I would rank it 7 out of 10.
I cannot understand such big hotel how they manage massive number of people during breakfast. As well as breakfast was excellent. All basic dishes were available since I do not like to have big meal during breakfast I was so pleased with breakfast menu. Also service was outstanding.
One I reach hotel staff did not show welcoming atmosphere but it was ok. Check in went very quick and smooth.. Reception and entrance was big.
Wi-Fi internet was free and good. I have not get any problem and it was easy to use.

Room Tip: Ask for garden veiw

i was traveling with wife and a then 7-year-old.

it is a gorgeous hotel on the outskirts of Firenze, about 10-15 minutes drive to the city center with free parking either above or underground if you are travelling italy in a car. i was greeted by welcoming front desk staffs with orientation to the hotel facilities and how to move around with their complimentary shuttle service. The hotel is decorated with marble almost everywhere with outstandingly clean and reasonably sized rooms, for us it was a double full-size bed. the bathroom is also spacious with many complimentary toiletries. the TV has standard english channels if you do wish so. The breakfast is average if not super, however the manager (sorry dont remember the name) was quite hospitality and resourceful.

i would definitely stay there next time, it outstands many other "classic" italian hotels, i am truly not comfortable to spend an arm to cramp into a guest room somewhere in the center of the city with no A/C etc. A great choice my wifey made.
