“Wonderful cheap hotel”
Reviewed 26 August 2011

If you want luxury, then this is not your hotel. If you want a place to stay that is friendly and clean for an affordable price in a pretty darn good location, then Hotel Dante is a great choice. The furniture is not up-to-date, but I feel like they did the best they could with it. It is a family run hotel, so you can tell they update things when they get a chance. The breakfast was very good and had a selection of cereals, pastries, yogurt, fruit, and a small selection of meats and cheeses. They make real cappucino there and we got one each morning. The staff there went out of their way to make us feel comfortable. I would certainly stay there again.

The hotel was basically clean but rooms were notably unattractive. Breakfast was significantly inferior to that in comparable level hotels in other parts of Tuscany. Stale rolls, cheeses that seemed like the cheapest grocery store cheese in the US. We emailed that manager before we left the US asking that he get us a reservation at the Academia. He said that there would be plenty of time when we arrived. We reminded him when we arrived. He put off doing it and then was not able to get us a ticket. The only positive was the location - on a street right next to Santa Croce. There must be better hotels in Florence for a similar price.

Staying at Dante Hotel was the best decision I made on our recent trip to Italy. After reading several reviews for this hotel, I had a feeling this was the right place to stay and it was. The owner, Elton, was so friendly and accomodating. He helpled make our stay in Florence so comfortable and easy. The breakfast buffet was fantastic! Me and my two sons (high school and college) loved the breakfast. The hotel is in a quiet neighborhood, yet is still an easy walk to all the sites. It is a nice place to rest and recharge from all the sites to see in Florence. I definitely recommend this hotel and would go back in a heart beat.

Shame on Lonely Planet, the rooms are terrible, service was rude, wi-fi was sporadic and the cost was far too high considering the excellent value and friendliness you can find 2-7 blocks away, still inside the city. Do not believe the pictures on the website of the hotel rooms.
