Stayed 3 nights in October, and thought the room was quite dark, ie not enough lights in the room, very hard to read a book in bed. The bathroom was clean and serviced every day as were the sheets on the bed. The hotel was really very handy to the rail station and also to the Duomo and even the markets which were right in the next street. Everything you really want to see was within walking distance. We took a bus to the hilltop where David's replica overlooks the city and walked back seeing the Ponte Vecchio, Galleria Uffizi, Palazzo della Signoria, Baptistry, Cathedral, Palazzo Pitti, Palazzo del Bargello, and the Santa Croce.
The staff at the hotel we found were friendly and helpful, recommending good restaurants nearby, and also tours that could be taken while in Florence. The breakfast offered was adequate, that is, I didn't need anything else to eat. Although chocolate croissants do nothing for me at breakfast. One thing I found really strange was that there were a lot of different levels on the same floor. Instead of walking your suitcase on a level floor, you have to carry your cases up and down 3 or 4 steps on the same landing. Be wary if you're travelling by car, because if you want to park the car it's going to cost you 25 euros per night. Overall I couldn't say the Atlantic Palace was 1 of my top 5 hotels but I couldn't fault the cleanliness and the efficiency of the staff. Would have given a better score had there been more lights in the room, and if the passageway had been level.
