I would not recommend this hotel to anybody. We have been there in the middle of October and it was cold. They told us that they can not provide heaters because they have no such. And they are waiting for central heating system to start. The windows shutters did not open ate all and in rooms was very dark all the day. The hotel is far away from all attractions and there are no restaurants nearby. Although it was written there are free parking, they told us it costs 10 euro per night!

Sept 2012. We stayed here for 4 nights. This is not a modern hotel but its charm lay in being old fashioned and maybe a bit tired in places, but we couldn't fault it. The room was clean, the beds were clean and comfortable, the decor quirky, but that's part of its charm. The staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was much the same day to day but there was a bit of variety.
Being a bit older (over 50) it was a good ½ hour walk to the main attractions and after a long day pounding the pavements seeing the sights, it was just that bit far away to walk back easily. There are a few restaurants nearby (10 mins max) for evening meals and reasonably priced

Booked this hotel after reading some good reviews on here, but after booking read some not so good reviews and so was a little concerned. However, pleasantly surprised. This hotel was, as already said, about 20 minutes walk from the centre of Florence, along a tree lined street which was busy with traffic early morning and evening, however none of this traffic disturbed the tranquility of the hotel. The decor in the hotel was a little surprising, art deco in style, with lots of mirrors around the place, interesting lights and furniture. The bedroom was spacious, with windows overlooking the garden, comfortable and clean. Good bathroom. Breakfast was simply Italian and to be expected, certainly nothing to complain about, although I would have liked less sweet orange juice and slightly stronger coffee. The staff were delightfully friendly, extremely helpful and we would certainly stay here again.

Basic rooms that are a little tired but adequate. Beds are a bit soft and springy. Free parking is located across the road from the hotel and may look a bit dodgy at night, but the hotel seems to be located in a good neighborhood. 25 mins walk to the centre of Florence. Free wifi. Service at reception can be a bit apathetic. As a side note, my GPS had the wrong location when I entered the address, so you may want to double check your GPS. Also, I saw the cleaner pouring one semi used shower gel into another outside one of the rooms. Didn't bother me as I used the bar of soap instead. You may also want to bring some insect repellant for mosquitoes.

We stayed at the Hotel Villa Liberty for one night over the August bank holiday weekend. I booked it mainly after reading reviews on here and the free parking was a huge selling point as we were travelling by car.
The hotel is in a lovely location, 20 minutes walk from the Ponte Vecchio bridge and the main sites and 5 minutes drive on the same street will take you to the best view I have ever seen (Piazzale Michelangelo).
The room was clean and nicely decorated with a good bathroom and air con/freewifi. Breakfast was great with lots of choice and Paolo even apologised for the rain keeping us inside to eat. The location is great for a busy weekend as it is far enough from the noisy street cleaners to sleep but close enough to stroll around the sites.
Overall a great hotel that I plan to go back to.

We had a most lovely stay at Hotel Liberty, which is an oasis of peace and harmony well-located in Firenze. The spa was wonderful, the breakfast lovely - thanks to Paolo, Irene, Dorian, Mario, Filippo, Santina and Daniela who really make a difference!

Very clean and comfortable with interesting rooms. Small bathroom but adequate and plenty of hot water in a good shower. Breakfast in the garden was very nice. It was good to have parking and a pleasant walk along the river into the city. We would go there again.
