I got back form Florence last night. A week in Club Hotel and it deserves a positive review. I had read a lot of reviews in the run up tour stay and they were pretty accurate. This is a small hotel, the rooms are compact, but they are clean, stylish and practical. The beds were super comfortable and the cleanliness of the room each day was second to none.
The hotel is placed about a 7-10 mins walk/saunter into the centre of florence but positioned perfectly for the train station and bus station if you are visiting elsewhere. The bus station is next door (worth a look for a 6 euro journey to the airport), but even if you get a taxi its only 15-20mins and 23 euro. The train station is about a 3 minute walk and we visited both Siena and Venice. The train to Venice was something else, reaching speeds of 300km. The journey was about 2 hours and a comfortable experience. This can be booked online from the UK and takes away the inconvenience of waiting around etc.
My only criticism, and I say this lightly because it won't enough to spoil the stay, would be about the breakfast. Whilst the selection was excellent and fresh, the space in which the breakfast was served was small and that meant guests were on top of each other. The breakfast could do with at least another coffee machine or toaster to minimise wait or inconvenience.
There is free wifi and the staff were very helpful. The pillows super comfy (I'm such a girl!).
Other reviews have mentioned the noise, and I agree. The hotel is in a busy area, bearing in mind the bus station, train station and location. There is a fair bit of noise from the streets. i was glad other people had mentioned it because I was prepared, and that meant it didn't bother me.
Would I recommend this hotel? Definitely! And Florence, Siena and Venice are incredible cities! Have a happy trip!
