“Friendly staff, nice location, but not for the single traveller”
Reviewed 13 July 2013

Friendly staff at the reception. Short walk to the trainstation and the wonderful venues of Florence. Wifi is okay. Breakfast is quite good, but you have to ask where it is, quite strange. Malaspina really needs to pay attention to people who travel alone, because I had the smallest room ever. I could not even open my suitcase without touching other elements in the room. Very small TV. Also, when you put your own stuff in the fridge, it is gone the next day when you get back to your room... Overall a pleasant stay but could be so much better...

Reasonably priced Florence hotel in good location. Very clean rooms well fitted out. Continental breakfast was generous but serving area can get congested. Double windows keep out the noise although adjacent rooms can be a problem if there are noisy neighbours. Free internet was good. Overall we found the hotel met our needs for comfort, cleanliness, location and reasonable price. The reception staff varied from cheery and helpful to downright dour. If I was the Manager I'd get a training programme going to ensure consistency of customer service.
I'd stay there again.

Room Tip: We were in room 206 which is a twin room. There are no views from this room but it is quiet and comf...

The positive sides of this hotel are its proximity to the train station (10 min walking) and the main attractions (15 min by foot), as well as the price. There are eateries, bars and convenience stores nearby. The hotel is clean and well maintained. The downsides are the small size of the rooms and the noise from the street. Get a room on a 3rd floor if you'd like to open the windows (a must during the warm May weather when the general a/c is not switched on yet (there's no individual a/c in the room) and the plastic windows are so tight you can loose your breath it's so stuffy).

Very good, good place in the near local area of the city, a significant smell every time when you walked through the reception, maybe comes from a toilet or something from the bottom from the house.
Nice park just outside the hotel.
However, I should really come back next time i visit Firense!

we stayed at the Malaspina 16/3 til 19/3. the front desk staff were very friendly and helpful,thank you.The hotel is a good location,all the main sights are within walking distance. The room we had was spacious.(no English channels on the tv). There was a good choice of continental breakfast although they could do with a 2nd toaster! Overall we were well pleased.

Hotel was extremely lovely and rooms very roomy and comfortable. Breakfast was good with lots of variety and staff very friendly and helpful. Hotel was close to all attractions, within easy walking distance. The hotel was also very quiet and view from our room overlooking a lovely park was great.

Starting with the garage just steps from the hotel (a valet takes your car and brings it back when you want it) and reception open 24h.The TV room and lobby are very pleasant, ideal situations for relaxing or socializing over a cup of coffee or glass of Tuscan wine served by the bar reserved for guests and open from 8 in the morning until midnight.Those staying at Hotel Malaspina for business can also use a conference room which can hold up to 20 people.The pretty breakfast room offers a plentiful buffet with sweet and savory foods, typical Florentine sweets, juices and hot beverages.
