Floroom 2
Ranked #452 of 654 Florence B&B and Inns
Reviewed 22 July 2012 via mobile

Great little hotel! Feels like you are in somebody's apartment (somebody with great design taste). A kitchen and living room which you can use and where you can hang out. Rooms are small (actually tiny) but its very clean, friendly and top modern design. Also, in a city where hotel living is very expensive this is a great value for money at a location that's "spot on" for central Florence! I'll easily go back!

Good location in the centre of Florence, easy to find from SM Novella train station. Accommodation was very good, clean, modern, air-con, coffee & pastries. Very attentive house-keeper chap who booked us in and arranged the breakfast each day. Entry to the front door, apartment and your room is all via a secure code so do make sure you have this before you arrive. We booked through Mr&Mrs Smith and there was a bit of confusion as we should have been given the code with the booking. Still a quick call to the owner, who spoke very good English and we were in.
As for sightseeing, the centre was very busy, with lots of tourists queuing for tickets and then queuing to get into the museums. In the end we did not bother wasting time queuing and walked along the riverside and up a steep hill to the Boboli gardens and Palazzo Pitti. There are great views from here to the Duomo. Also worth walking up to the piazza Michelangelo for the views but leave it until later in the afternoon when there are fewer tourists.
Climbing up the Duomo tower was the highlight. Look for the smaller side entrance, no queue in the morning as all the tourists seemed to head for the main entrance, which does not access the tower.

A very modern simplistic b&b in a great location in Florence. Includes a continental breakfast, free snacks and drinks, wifi and helpful service. Note no on site parking but it's just around the corner. Don't drive around anyway, it's easy walking to most sights. Would definately stay again but get the superior room as the studio is a little small, but a clever use of space.

Floroom 2 a very small hotel but a few things you need to know

Good Points
- Walking Distance from everything
- Breakfast and drinks are included in the Hotel

Bad Points
- Tiny Room.
- Shower was terrible even after complaining.
- Toilet and Shower is inside a cupboard in your room - Website shows you the bathroom for the best bedroom not for the standard.
- Over 100 Channels but nothing in English apart from MTV.
- Air Conditioning - Heats you up but does not blow out cold air.
- You have to climb 4 flights of stairs to get to the hotel - No lift.
- Matteress is hard as a rock, me and wife had bad shoulders and back when we got back

Room Tip: I would not recommend this place at all.

My husband and I stayed in this hotel in the spring of 2011. We enjoyed it very much and were shocked and how much we liked it, because when the taxi dropped us off at the end of the alley to walk to the hotel, we weren't sure what we were in for. The rooms are exceptionally clean, contemporary, and the service is outstanding. The one employee there was very attentive. There is not an elevator, and it is on the third floor, so it may not be for everyone. Also, the set-up of the hotel is four rooms off of a small central lobby, so it is tight quarters to some degree. We would stay there again in a minute, but it may not be for everyone.

Stayed for two nights in November in their smallest room. Location coudn't be better and is a few minutes walk from most of the sites. Rooms are compact but beautifully done, with a very clean contemporary design and plenty of character. We also loved the 'private apartment' feel of the hotel - there isn't really a desk/staff walking around, and you access the non-descript front door (and your room) with your keycode, so it does feel like you're staying at a friend's luxury apartment rather than a hotel.

A couple of things to be aware of. Our room and the social areas might be too small for some (we felt it was worth it for the location and character of the property), the interior walls are quite thin, and finally the size of our room meant that, whilst brilliantly designed, the toilet/shower are almost in the bedroom and seperated by some thin glass sliding doors, so in this room you need to know the person that you're staying with very well!

All in all a great hotel, excellent value, and will definitely return next time I'm in Florence.

Floroom is right in the center, clean, beautifully designed, homey and fun. The breakfast is a fresh and generous and the hospitality is amazingly personal and friendly and makes you feel like a guest at a friends' house and not a hotel.
If you're going to florence, don't miss this one!
