NH Porta Rossa was great from the process of making our reservation to the day we left Florence! We requested and got a quiet room, but so much more! The NH Porta Rossa was recently renovated, yet keeping architectural and artistic elements intact. The decor combines the Renaissance and the modern beautifully!
The location is excellent, being in the central, pedestrianized, area of Florence. You can walk everywhere.
Unlike many Florence hotels, Porta Rossa enters from the street, not up a flight of stairs, and as an older couple, we preferred not to climb many stairs after coming home from a long day of sightseeing. Their gorgeous reception area was staffed by very friendly and helpful people. To get to our room, we took an elevator to our floor, came out into a spacious lobby area and walked through a beautiful hallway to our sparkling clean and beautiful room. Our room was spacious, the A/C worked extremely well, the beds were comfortable, even though a bit on the hard side (like most in Europe), the bathroom had the latest bathroom fixtures and lots of amenities, including bathrobes and slippers. Even a toothbrush with toothpaste was included!
The breakfasts were good and went to 11:00 a.m., which was nice for us, as we love to sleep in late. The bar area and breakfast room was, again, beautiful! The hotel does not have a restaurant on sight, but Florence has many, many good restaurants. An excellent one, Oliviero, was literally out the back door and a few steps away from the hotel!
The only possible negatives I can say about this hotel (and I hate to even mention them, because the overall experience was so terrific) are (1) the wifi, although free, is not easy to use, because the hotel changes the username and password every 30 minutes, and (2) the brand new bathtub was a bit slippery. One has to be careful not to slip in it.
The hotel is not the cheapest one in Florence, but is apparently in the mid-range of prices, and for the price we paid we got excellent value! I highly recommend NH Porta Rossa!
