“Convenient location and value for money”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2014

I am giving it an average rating since the reception staff/manager/owner tried to pass us into a lower category room inspite of us having a booking for Comfort Dbl room ( annex ) which is the newer rooms advertised in their website , However on my insistence she reduced the rate for 1st night as we had to spend that night in a very poor room ! Apart from this fiasco , I loved the city and the location of the hotel , very close to the main railway station and walking distance to all the attractions of Florence . Bang opposite to the hotel is a Liquor shop , open from morning till midnight ,for those interested in chilled beers or any other alco. 50 mtr away is the Mercato Centrale which houses lots of gastronomical options ( open till 11 pm) and a good place to hang around . Breakfast was average , they serve boiled eggs , We stayed there for 3 nights , so on the last day , tired of the same breakfast daily , we walked down to a Mcdonald's which is just 2 minutes away ( opp the station and also the option of Burger King). The room ( No.20) in the annex was good with a modern touch , it also had a safe deposit box and a minibar ( empty) but the wifi signal was very poor and the rain shower not working . If you ignore all these , its a nice place to stay mainly because of the location .

We had a stay planned for two days in this hotel. They gave us a large room with a bathroom, two twin beds and one queen bed, as we were four. They make the beds and clean the bathroom everyday, the room was large and the bathroom was too. The room was on a first floor and is clean, with a classic look to it. We stayed for 2 days and it was fantastic, but after some unfortunate events that included us having to go to the hospital we had to extend our stay, to 8 days. They even called in an ambulance for us, at 12 pm, didnt even blink an eye and were already helping us. To say the hotel staff was great is an understatement. The staff helped us with absolutely everything we needed, the whole staff is really nice and almost everyone speaks english and italian . As we do not speak italian, they were all wonderful trying to help us, from booking different flights, to calling the local doctor in for us. Recommend this hotel 100% because our stay was one of the best in Italy. Other than the staff, the breakfast is really good, from 8am to 10am and is great. The hotel is extremely clean and attentive to all their guest. Also it is really well located, down the street there are alot of restaurants and cafes, and a 5 minute walk to the train station. They have free WIFI and also a small space with toys for families with little children.

Room Tip: Rooms on the first floor are fantastic, easy to access, and large.

Florence was our first stop on our 2 week holiday in Italy and we were lucky enough to have found Hotel Azzi. It was a great little hotel in such a brilliant location - only minutes from all of the sights of Florence. We had a twin bedded room and whilst it was not large it was OK for a couple of nights. It was clean and comfortable with a strong shower with loads of hot water which is what you want when you are out all day seeing the sight. The breakfast was good and the free WiFi worked well. The staff were really friendly and helped us find our way around. As this is an old building don't expect a lift but the staff will help you with your bags if you need it. I'd certainly stay here again - a friendly hotel that made a great base for the sights of Florence.

Room was huge. Lots of space to hang stuff, a couch to sit on, plenty of floor space. The bathroom was clean and shower hot. The furnishings all yellow.. Curtains, bed linen, walls, light shade.. Like yellow, you will love this room. Reception very helpful and friendly. Only one flight of stairs .. Yeay:-) I will return.

I love this hotel. I have a bad leg,so I was looking for a hotel with a lift (hard to find in Italian budget hotels) or a room on the ground floor (also rare for a budget hotel in Italy). The Hotel Azzi told me that they could give me a room on the ground floor. I reserved 2 months in advance and they were able to deliver on their promise. I got a huge room complete with sitting area plus a huge bathroom with a raised toilet with guardrails. I couldnt have been more pleased. The front desk also made train reservations and museum reservations and printed out the tickets for us so we could avoid the lines!
And the breakfast buffet was very nice -boiled eggs, sliced cheese and they will make you a capuccino if you ask for it.
Dont be afraid of the Via Faenze budget hotels, this one is a winner.

Room Tip: Bring your own bar soap, Italian hotels arent big on that.
