Perfectly located, charming place. I am so happy I found it. I appreciated the free wifi in the lobby. The breakfasts were awsome.
- Free Wifi
The hotel is located in the heart of old town, close to all main attractions but far from the crowds of Florence! Cosy, modern and traditional with beautiful antiques ouevres in an amazing historical building in Florence. We were kindly upgraded to a suite - " the best ever" with views to the roofs of Florence! We stayed there 7 nights in march, 2011 and, as we`re planning to come back, I am witting this review about NH Porta Rossa, for sure one of the best hotels in Florence! Great staff, great breksfast, silence, beauty and modernity in a historical building and the wonderful Florence, its good food, culture, history and art... Is it possible to have more from a hodiday trip?
This is the second time i stay in this hotel. Rooms are very modern and in a good condition but its still some details left to be a 5 star hotel. Lobby is also nice but the hotel could put in some extra attention to details in this area since its the first impression of the hotel. The soffas look a bit old but in general its very nice!
The breakfast rooms is very beatiful and breakfast is very good, but here its also something missing to be top notch. Service, athmosphere and the music in the breakfastroom and bar could be better.
But i recommend a visit in this hotel.
The hotel is located in a villa right in the heart of the old town.....but don't arrive by car. The hotel is located on a pedestrianised street and the poor GPS will be confused in those narrow streets. While the ambiance of the old building has been retained, the rooms are modern, well furnished and comfortable. A good breakfast is served on the ground floor. There is a bar but this was not busy while we were there and we normally went out for a drink as there are lots of options close by. All the main sights of Florence are within easy walking distance.
Great hotel. Very central location, and you can walk to everything you want to see. Also comes with a very good complimentary breakfast. Upon arriving, we upgraded to a "junior suite" which was very spacious and a very cool with modern layout and feel. Staff was also friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay here again on our next trip back to Florence.
My wife and I stayed here for the 3 nights we were in Florence. Great location right on the edge of all the attractions. Florence is so small you can get to everything on foot from here. The room was a mix of old and new. Really the only thing old is the building itself. The furniture and bathroom are all modern and stylish. The room was nice and quiet. We had a room on the 5th floor and the old building walls must be really thick. The breakfast came included with our room and was adequate. The entire staff was wonderful during our stay. Things to note about the hotel: check in is at 2:30pm (so if you come early just be prepared that your room might not be available. It's worth the wait though since the accommodations are so nice. Leave your bags at the front desk and they'll be waiting for you in the room when you get back from wandering the city.), the biggest down side is the wifi in the room is not free. The fee for wifi isn't too bad as it only costs about 10 Euros for 24 hours. They however do have free wifi in the lobby. Overall this hotel was great.
