“Good location, friendly reception”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2011

Fiorita Hotel is located 2 mn walk from the main train station, and 20 mn walk from all the town tourism site. Very friendly reception, good value (49 euros for a single room), it is in the 3rd floor within an old building,with an old fashion lift, the breakfast is excellent, the rooms are small but with all what you need: TV, refrigerator, AC, telephone, bathroom. The only bad point is the heating that start and stop randomly and the temperature inside the room is not stable.

Room Tip: Ask a room not close to reception (noisy)

We picked this hotel in Florence to balance the cost of some of the other places we stayed while in Italy. That being said we had come from an amazing charming B&B in Venice and this place just did not compare. The hotel room was clean, except for the empty water bottle sitting on top of the bathroom wall. (the bathroom was carved out in the room with the walls not going all the way up to the ceiling). There was no shampoo, just soap provided. Since our room was close to reception, in the morning we could here doors opening a closing very clearly.

We asked for a restaurant recommendation from reception and were not happy with the place. We ate such amazing food while in Italy, and this was the one place that was just average.

That being said. You can't beat $95 euro per night in the center of town. The location was great and it did allow us to explore central Florence and be a 5 minute walk from the train station. If you're looking for a bargain hotel, I would recommend this place.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from reception.

Dear Guest,
thanks for your review. We would like to add some more information missing in your report.
Probably you did not notice that from your window you could have a splendid view over the florentine hills,The Duomo,the Giotto tower and the Medici Chapels. In Florence there are more 1200 accommodation places between hotels,b/b,relais.hostels etc. but only 75 can offer
this unique view: we are one of them!.
Probably you did not notice that shampoo is also offered to our guests, usually standing in the shower rack.
Probably you did not notice that either shampoo or soap are made with 100% Tuscany olive oil;
so that we are able to offer our guests a unique scent.
We use to suggest only tipycal local restaurants where we know there is an authentic local preparation; many times guests are happy a few others not but this regards more client's taste
than hotel suggestions.
Many thanks for staying with us and wish you all the best !

We were a little concerned about the hotel when we arrived, as its front door wasn't really the best we ever seen. However, it turns out Hotel Fiorita is a really charming boutique hotel, greatly located only a block far from Santa Maria Novella train station and 3 blocks away from the Piazza Duomo. The rooms were very big, classy and comfortable, with a nice antique look, but with visibly new furniture. Few staff people, but service was very good, considering is a simple hotel. Breakfast is poor and internet isn't free. There's no parking at the hotel, but they do have an agreement with a nearby parking facility, for a reduced rate. I recommend the hotel to everyone.

Hotel Fiorita's location is great because it is very close to the train station. The room is large and clean. For internet all you have to do is pay a little depending on how long you use it. The breakfast is very yummy. We lost our jackets on a tour bus and the receptionist, Maurizio helped us call the tour guide. All staff were friendly and polite. We liked it very much and we will stay there again on our next trip to Florence.

An excellent hotel which does not break your bank account. Very friendly and helpful staff, very good breakfast with quite a good variety to choose from. The fruit pie they offer is amazing!!!
The room and bathroom were spacious enough. No frills but very comfortable and the very right temperature setting.
We will sure choose this hotel for another stay in Florence.
The hotel is just two minutes away from the railway station and only ten minutes away from Florence city centre.
Thank you to all the Fiorita Hotel staff who have helped to make our nine nights stay in Florence very memorable.

Only a few minutes walk to the train station. The staff were very helpful, the room was small but as being on my own, found it very cosy. The room was very clean, best value for money so far out of three hotels

We recently spent two nights at Hotel Fiorita and were not disappointed! The best thing about the hotel is that it is almost right across the street from the main train station - much appreciated after a long trip! Upon our arrival, we received a friendly greeting and a good outline of the city, complete with a map detailing all the major tourist highlights of Florence.

Our room was decent sized and very clean. The bathroom was a bit small, and if you are very tall, you'll find that you have to sit on the toilet sideways - but it was clean and had all the amenities we needed! The only downside to our room was that it faced the street and just around the corner is the bus depot, so we did hear large buses go by late at night and early in the morning.

Breakfast was included and it was fabulous. Lots of choices, everything fresh, and a friendly staff member maintaining the breakfast room.

Internet connection was available for a small fee and we had no problems with the wifi connection.

The hotel is located right near the train station so it is a little outside of all the main Florence attractions, but if you don't mind a 10-minute walk (through the fabulous outdoor markets!), you'll soon find yourself right in the thick of things!

Would definitely return to this hotel and hope to come back to Florence soon!
