Hotel Golf
Ranked #234 of 409 Hotels in Florence
Reviewed 28 August 2014

We stayed 4 nights as part of a Tuscany tour. The room was clean and the air con worked. The staff were very helpful. There's free parking but you cannot book a space. The hotel is about 5 mins from the train station and about 15 mins from a few sights, 15-20 from the Duomo. Not at all bad for the price.

The staff were very helpful. The car park was very secure and convenient. Our room was lovely - very spacious, well decorated, clean, and bright. The bathroom was good too. The internet connection was fast. Nice breakfast. Great location, only about 15 minute walk from the Duomo. I would stay here again.

I stayed at the Hotel Golf this past Spring (March 2014) and had a terrible time. First, the hotel needs to have renovations. My room had peeled wallpaper and smelled of mildew. The bathroom was clean, but there were mildew spots above the shower stall. In addition, the bathroom had poor ventilation. My mother and sister stayed in a separate room and their decor was the same. In both rooms, the beds were rickety and uncomfortable; in fact, my mother's bed broke underneath her. When we reported it to the concierge in the morning, he told us he'd think about switching her room. After prodding (and begging), he felt it was *okay* to switch their rooms (her bed BROKE underneath her - the other concierge responded to my mother, "that's ridiculous, you're not even big). If the smell of mildew, dingy accommodations, and uncomfortable beds weren't enough, the walls are thin, so you'll sleep if you're lucky. We stayed at the same time as a traveling band, who played their instruments until 3:00am. We called the front desk, but nothing changed. I certainly won't stay there again...ever!

Great hotel, there wasn't much that I didn't like about it. My boyfriend and I stayed here for 4 nights, we traveled to Florence from Paris. From the airport we took a taxi straight to the hotel (about a 15 min drive and 35 euros). Front desk was very welcoming and gave us all the information we needed as we checked in, he recommended 2 restaurants in the area and gave us simple directions on how to get around. Firenze Santa Maria Novella train station was a 5 min walk, very convenient! In the area there was a grocery store, gelato store and many small shops. It was a 20 min walk to the Galleria dell'Accademia where we saw the statue of David. We walked pretty much everywhere to see all of the popular attractions (if you don't mind the walking then this location will be perfect). The room was very nice and tidy. The bed was a little too hard for my liking but I was still able to sleep well, washroom/shower was clean, we had a safe to keep important documents, and we had free wi-fi in the bedroom. Breakfast was included, which is always a plus, coffee from the machine was a little disappointing but you can always ask them to make you something fresh from the kitchen. We went to the pizza restaurant that the staff recommended and it was delicious! We paid a reasonable price for good quality food. The hotel felt very safe and secure, overall I would recommend this place to anyone and would definitely go back.

We spent 3 nights at the hotel golf, which is well located to visit Florence and a great value for money, near the main station so very easy to get to and to move around if you plan to see any near by towns. The staff is very friendly and the room very comfortable and a good breakfast.

Just stayed here on a wok trip and Florence was very busy so difficult to find a hotel.
On the plus side its a very typical italian hotel and the concierge recommended a great local restaurant.
Downsides were that my colleague and i were in ajoining rooms but we may as well have been in the same room. Zero soundproofing. Secondly, the room was very simple and the shower was angled so it was almost impossible to use it properly.
Breakfast was Ok. Coffee disappointing from a machine.
If i had paid 60 or 70 euros I would have thought it was fine. For 116 it was just too much.
