“Great hotel in a great location”
Reviewed 10 July 2011

I have stayed in many fine hotels in Florence. This hotel certainly holds its own with them. My room overlooking the Santa Maria Novella square was large and comfortable.
Danieli at the front desk was most helpful and always so pleasant. The breakfast was lovely and certainly provided a wide variet of things. While the shower was very small, the bathroom was fine. The hotel loaction s great-convenient to all of Florence. It is a very good value for the money.

Hotel Rosso 23 is very close to the train station and in a nice area. The hotel itself is clean and modern, red and white. The staff was nice and informative, the breakfast good and the room comfortable. When you leave the train station, walk right (you'll see the taxi's lined up) and continue past them to the corner. Look directly across the street and you'll see a church. Cross the street and walk behind the church where you'll find a small square of hotels and restaurants. Hotel Rosso is on the left. We didn't understand the directions and being tired and frustrated, took a taxi from the taxi stop, which took us around the corner to the hotel and cost 10 euros! A nice place to stay and good value.

Lovely little hotel in great location only few minutes easy walk from train station.

Staff very friendly and helpful recommended restaurant for dinner. Which was just around the corner and was a good, reasonably priced meal. Restaurant was popular with the locals, which is always a good sign.

Hotel room was very clean, good beds and air conditioner.
Breakfast was very nice also. Would stay here again.

The hotel did not meet my expectations at all. First of all, when I arrived it was overbooked and my room was not available. Finally, when I got a room it was very small with a window looking at a dirty wall. Prison would have better conditions than this place. The hotel restaurant that was recommended by the hotel administrator, served a poor choice of meals. I was wondering at the end of the dinner if my guests and I would get some kind of food poisoning there.
Unlike other places in Italy where I stayed before, this place was not equipped with friendly staff. Any comments or requests were taken quite aggressively by the hotel management. Just to conclude, I would not recommend this hotel to anybody who wants to have pleasant memories from their trip to Florence.

Hotel was about two blocks and easy walk from the train station. Very good location for Florence. Staff were excellent. Very helpful and spoke good english. Rooms were modern and plenty of room. The bathroom was fine but the shower was a little small, no bath. But it was adequate for two days of our stay. Good WiFi. Breakfast was good and average selection of food items. Location easy walking distance to all the sights around Florence.

The hotel is located right in the same square as Santa Maria Novella church. It is just walking distance to the Firenze train station as well as short distances away from the Ponte Vecchio and the Duomo. It is a great modern hotel for the price. They also serve a decent continental breakfast. The staff is very friendly and very informative about tours and sites to see. Definitely a recommended option!

We enjoyed our stay at Rosso 23, it served as a great base for exploring Florence, just a few minutes walk into the main hub of the city and the square it is situated on is lovely. The inside of the hotel is smart, modern and clean. The entire hotel adorns to the sleek red and grey colour scheme. Although it is in a period building, the inside of the hotel does not display much Tuscan character, so you could perhaps be anywhere in the world. If you are looking for period features in your room it may not be the hotel for you. The other point to mention is that the rooms vary dramatically in size for the same cost. We were apart of a wedding party and some had tiny rooms and other rooms were very impressive, so if booking here again I would request one of their more spacious rooms. The breakfasts at the hotel are superb.And beds exceptionally comfortable. All in all a pleasant stay.

Room Tip: If you want space, request it!
