When we arrived to the Atlantic Palace hotel, there was one man at the front desk, who din't even greet us. He seemed not interested that we just arrived. He checked us in, and then exchanged some US dollars for us to Euro at the highest rate possible, saying that that was the rate at the bank that day (that wasn't true). The free Wifi didn't work and we paid like 69 € and bought it at TIM. The hotel did not have an elevator. The room had a tiny window, facing the narrow street, all we saw was a wall from another building. We traveled with a child, so we booked a suite. It was very basic-bed, tv, closet in the main room and only sofa in the other room. There were no paintings, just plain white walls and a couple of furniture pieces. The bathroom was very clean and spacious though. It was probably the best bathroom we had in Italy-new toilet, shower, toothbrushes, razor, shampoo, etc. the breakfast was pretty bad-ham, eggs, a few pastries(very limmited). Unfortunately, I booked the non-refundable rate, and if I had a choice, I would probably book something different. The location was OK, 5 minute walk to the train. Since Florence is small, it is about 10 minute walk to Duomo from the hotel. Overall, it was more like a 3 star hotel.
