First about my rating.
I could only choose between 'average' and 'very good'.
The Golden Tulip Hotel is centainly far better than 'average', but I am sure that there might be better 'very good' options in Florence.
We were travelling by car, so the Golden Tulip seemed to be one of the best options.
Car park is private, big enough and completely free.
The hotel is located 3 KM / 2 miles North of the town centre, but has excellent bus connections to there. Busses run every 10-20 minutes, the trip to the central Railway station takes 10-15 min. The hotel also sells bus tickets.
Staff were friendly and helpful.
Rooms were okay, what you might expect from a 4-star hotel, although some maintenance would be advisable.
But everything was working perfectly. Even the capacity of the room controlled AC was more than sufficient for the hot Summer day.
Although the small wooden stool in the bathroom was really shebby (advise for GT: Replace these items with new steel or plastic ones, they should not cost more than € 5).
Breakfast was relly good, a wide variety of items, nothing to remark.
