Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 December 2013

The staff was awesomely friendly and helpful for any kind of questions or issued. Rooms and bath were very clean although some shelf more and a soap holder or similar wouldn't hurt in the bath. Breakfast was enough for people that live the "italian" breakfast (cappuccino e brioche) but in general probably not quite as big of a variety as in other 4 star hotels. It's location close to the city center and the main train station was just perfect for a trip of a few days.
Over all a very good hotel worth definitely the money and will be back again when i hit Florence the next time.

All staff at the hotel where so helpful and friendly we could not fault them. Some House keeping can be better but it was a joy to find Adrianna, Luka, Gabriel, Adrian every time we got back to the hotel. I hope I got the name right but you know yourselves thank you for the useful tips and for making Florence's birthday such a success

We booked three nights at Room Mate Luca mid November - very nice - happy with our stay and the room - the staff at the front desk were all great - Silvia helped us book a Tuscan countryside tour and wine tasting - breakfast was included - great selection of "American style" if you preferred or European style breakfast. We arrived on the weekend so it was a little bit busier, but then it was quiet after Monday - the room was nice - very large, bed was comfy - and the room opened into a back area that was a rooftop where so cats hung out and harassed some pigeons....beware - there can still be mosquitoes in November in Italy...we didn't know - they loved my husband but didn't care for me...lucky cause he had about 25 bites! If I had known the hotel would have provided us with something to keep them at bay - when we checked out they were so apologetic and felt bad because they could have helped. This hotel is in a great location for getting around Firenze and is a 10 minute walk from the train station! There were lots of restaurants around the area and nice stores - not far from Santa Croce or Academia - I would definitely recommend this hotel and stay here again if I get the chance to return!

Room Tip: Our room was located at the back of the hotel not a street room - it was very quiet.

This hotel is different in a very positive way: Very nice design, old building fully renovated with cheerful colors. The staff is extremely friendly. I don't know what the staff has been eating but I have never seen so much hospitality in a hotel! I took the cheapest single room: The little room is nice .Colors and design are very nice. The bed is good. The bathroom is small but clean. The shower is very small as also the sink. There is enough light and atmosphere in the room and place to store the bags and the clothes. Further a small television, a safe and a minifridge. A bit annoying is the noise of the neighbors: When they use the shower I can hear too much especially when my neighboor hits the walls (because the showers are very small). The breakfast is basic plus and included in the price: Toast, bread, cheese, hamm, (instant) juices, egg, warm eggs, coffee machine (just to survive), yoghurt, fresh bananas, kiwi, oranges. Again the staff is always willing to help. The neighborhood is good and the hotel is 10 minutes walking from the trainstation and the city center (the catherdral). I also like their reservation system: clear prices, the more nights you stay, the lower the price per night, no prepayments and cancelations possible untill 2 days before! I will definitely go back here again!

Room Mate Luca is a place to which I would quickly return. The recent renovation is so complete that you would hardly guess that you are in an old building. Our room on the first floor had everything you might want.. The location is good enough and you can easily walk to most attractions in the downtown, which is not very large for a large city. The room was spacious, bright, cheerful and functional. And the bathroom had the type of bathtub you wish you had at home. I found the breakfast area too busy for my liking, but I may have been there at a particularly busy moment.

Excellent value for downtown Florence.

The first thing one notices about the Room Mate Luca is the incredibly friendly reception, and again every time one has occasion to speak with them. Really a pleasure. The Hotel is in an old building with high ceilings that has been carefully renovated with modern touches. The rooms are large, beds comfortable and our room to the garden was so quiet that we had to check if the window was really open. The breakfast is ok but not spectacular, and a nearby parking garage picks up and delivers the car. The hotel is very central with San Marco, San Lorenzo and even the Duomo close by. As practically anywhere in this great city there are excellent restaurants within a few minutes in every direction.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room out to the back
