Hotel Rex
Ranked #344 of 409 Hotels in Florence
Reviewed 19 December 2012

Hotel is easy to find, and only about 5-10 mins walk from the main bus station. It is easy to walk around Florence and see all the wonderful sights from the hotel. Clean, tidy rooms with decent bathrooms and breakfast was good value. The downside for me was that the wifi only works downstairs in the lobby areas - but it is free so I couldn't complain too much! I thought the cost was a bit high, but maybe thats what you have to pay for that area.

I had a lovely time at Rex Hotel Firenze. First of all all the staff is great and polite and always ready to help you with any questions, the rooms are very clean and much better standard than many others 3 stars hotel, that i have been visiting in Italy. The quality/price of the Hotel is what you looking forward , when you are travelling in a budget.The Hotel is right in the centre of the this beautiful city. The area is called San Lorenzo where you have a variety of local amenities including a fantastic food market and many gorgeus little restaurants "trattoria". I will be back soon.The mad British guy.

Well located in the centre of Florence and provided a basic level of accommodation and a free breakfast that was nothing special, but provided fuel for the day ahead. Good sized rooms but don't even think about bring a car to this place.

Room Tip: The lifts are relatively slow. Get down to breakfast early

Terrible room, wall to wall carpet, horrible yellow curtains .. That I never took off my sandals in the room probably says it all. The absolute worst breakfast of 11 days in Italy. Florence was fantastic, hotel rex was awful!

Good location and easy to find from the train station. Plenty of places to eat and drink around the hotel and free wi-fi good and also the Irish bar opposite also offer free wi-fi. Rooms a good size with space to store luggage, room and bathroom very clean and tidy. Breakfast good and plenty of selection. Over all good value for money for a central hotel in Florence!

This is a place where tour bathroom will be durty, the carpets will be durty, the walls of your room will be durty, the water in the bathroom will be limited and when you dare saying anything the responce you get will be <if you want your mone back sir I will give them to you and you can go somewere else to stay>.
DO NOT GO THERE BECAUSE YOU WILL DESTROY YOUR HOLLIDAYS.
