“Excellent 4-star hotel near the central train station”
Reviewed 3 November 2013

I was in Florence on a tour and stayed at this hotel for five nights. It is very close to the central train station in Florence and an easy walk to all the major tourist attractions in the city. The street is very quiet, but there are many restaurants and shops just a block away near the train station. The staff are great. All of the desk staff are fluent in English and are extremely helpful. They all knew me by name and room number within a day. The included breakfast is excellent with eggs, sausages, bacon, all types of breads, cereals, cold meats and cheeses, yogurt, milk, juices, coffee, and even sweets. The internet in the hotel is great. They have 50 megabit service, which provides very high speed service even with a full hotel. I was in room 624 and had strong WiFi signal in my room, good enough for video Skype calls to the USA. The hotel has two elevators which are fast. There is a sun deck on the 6th floor that has a nice view of the city and the mountains. The rooms are larger than many European hotels, with a desk, chest of drawers, and a large bathroom. The rooms had good air conditioning.

I would highly recommend this hotel. I have also stayed in the Embassy Hotel which is next door and the Londra is much better.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that doesn't face the street to avoid streetcar noise.

very rude receptionists they talk italian in front of you and they make it clear that they are talking about you!!! also the waiters during breakfast make you feel that they dont need you for their customers...
the location of the hotel is good near the train and bus station this is the only reason to chose this hotel..

Looks like a nothing hotel from the outside and across the street looks like an abandoned building. However, the location is good across from the train station and you can walk to just about everything including the leather market, Academia, Uffizzi, etc. The staff was friendly and gave us two good restaurants to go to and we went back to one of them twice. The breakfast was very nice and plentiful. We booked the Florance for Foodies food tour and that was the highlight for us in Florance besides seeing The David.

Only about 15 minute walk to most of the main attractions, there are certainly a lot of other hotels closer to them. However, I was only there for 3 days and had several bags with me so I wanted to be closer to the main train station to use that as my base. It was perfect for that scenario, decent neighborhood but there is a tram that runs out front (it didn't bother me at all though). The hotel itself is quite nice actually, breakfast was good (bacon, scrambled eggs, typical meats, cheeses and breads etc). Wifi available for free. However, it was very easy to hear your neighbors. We were woken by the maid vacuuming halfway down the hallway and several banging doors. Other than that no complaints really. Good hotel if you want to be by the station, average hotel if you want to be closer to the sites

I stayed here during the middle part of my tour with Insight Vacations.

I didn't spend too much time in the hotel because I was out and about exploring wonderful Florence. However, the hotel itself is more modern than historic, clean and very nice. It's a bit old-fashioned in that you leave your key at the front desk when you exit the hotel but I found it charming and very classic.

The breakfast was amazing. They had great eggs, bacon, fruit, breads, etc ... but best of all they had Nutella-filled croissants!! They were absolutely delicious. Great coffee and tea as well.

The rooms were average in size but clean and tidy. The bathrooms were clean and nice as well. Not a luxury hotel but a nice stay in a very expensive city. Overall I enjoyed it very much!

Only a short walk from train station and all the main attractions, while passing so many bars, cafés and many quaint restaurants.
The front desk staff are very friendly and efficient which makes check in and out very smooth..
Breakfast is good with a lot of choices from scrambled eggs and bacon to cereal, yoghurt and very fresh fruit..
The room was great, very clean, spacious and very well appointed. Bed was very comfy and large.

Must mention Sofia, lady that worked in the bar one night..Extremely friendly, polite, very professional and mixes the "perfect" cosmopolitan.... A credit to the hotel

Spent 2 nights at this hotel and is was good. Rooms are quite small, but, fits perfectly for 2 persons. Simple amenities are present. Breakfast is good. Wifi is available for a fee. Train runs right in front of the hotel. The location is good, but, we haven't get the chance to roam around the vicinity.
