“Great Location.”
Reviewed 15 June 2010

We used this simply as a base to head out to Tuscany, which it was perfect for. (definitely visit Sienna, in fact i would stay there for a few nights)
Location and value for money is great. I found locating the right hotel in Florence was difficult. For the price most things seemed shabby or poorly located. But this was modernized with a little designer flair. Rooms are a little cramped, not really anywhere to put your suitcase, but beds are comfortable. Everything was clean and restaurants and sights are close. Room was very quiet too.

10 min walk from SMN station. Right in the center of the Piazza in Santa Maria Novella. Fabulous for an after dinner walk and gellato.
The first room we were given was no more than the bed . No wardrobes or any space to keep you luggage. Barely space for 1person to stand in the room outside of the bed.
We felt claustrophobic and had to ask for an upgrade to a superior room.
The superior room also does not have space for wardrobes but its better. Photos on the website are of a different era and only faded memories.
Bathroom had a leak. You cant move your hands or feet once you're inside the shower cubicle or you'll hit the walls. If you weigh anything more the 250 pounds dont stay in this hotel or be prepared not to shower for the duration of your stay here.
Breakfast is modest. No eggs.

My husband and I stayed at the Hotel Rosso23 for two nights and loved the hotel! The accommodations were modern, clean and comfortable. We had a standard double room on the third floor with a view of the Duomo out our window. Buffet breakfast was excellent as was the coffee! Front desk staff was extremely helpful in assisting us with restaurant suggestions and maps. I was so happy that I booked this hotel!

My sister came to Florence in September and suggested this hotel to us. This hotel is okay. The service is great as they are very helpful. But the room is very small and awkward. The bed is comfortable and the semi clean.

It is very expensive for the price we get. But very close to train station and market. Breakfast was not so good either.

We actually really enjoyed our stay in Florence, though the hotel would definitely not be the highlight of our time there. The location is fantastic, especially if you are traveling to Florence by train. Rooms were on the small side, and the shower is TINY! I'm pretty petite (5'4"), but even I felt a little uncomfortable in that shower. Also, our room did not have a safe, which I wasn't thrilled about. Breakfast here had more variety than most properties and was a huge plus for my husband. I do appreciate friendly and helpful staff, and really, this hotel did not have it. We always felt like we were a burden to them when we asked them anything. They hardly ever smiled at us or went out of their way to help with a friendly suggestion of what to see or where to eat. That was very unfortunate, but definitely did not spoil our time in Florence. However, the hotel did provide good value for our money, and I would consider staying here again when we return to Florence.

We booked a superior double room overlokking the piazza. We had room 114 on the first fllor which was enormous and had a balcony. Highly recommended , 115 would be the same. Our friend had a room overlooking the light well and she was very satisfied.
Be aware some web sites have confusing room descriptions, double check superior is overlooking the piazza as they are larger.

Staff were really helpful and happily booked reataurants. The breakfast staff were very efficient , there were some problems of space when the courtyard area isnt in use. Location is good , 5 mins from station , quiet at night and walking distance to all attractions.

Only a 5 minute walk from the train station so this is very convenient. Nice décor in the hotel and rooms but the rooms are quite dim. Breakfast is great with good selection for everyone. The beds were the most comfortable for our entire trip and the pillows are medium fluffy and not that flat. The shower stall was incredibly tight however for our room. So make sure you get a room that doesn’t have a corner shower stall like 202. The staff at the hotel are mediocre. Each of the different hotel staff were able to answer our questions half-heartedly when we asked for the weather forecast, flight status or restaurants for locals. Internet is 5 euros for 24 hours. Overall, I would still stay there again.
