Hotel Rosary Garden
Ranked #127 of 409 Hotels in Florence
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 June 2014

The room was small but clean and quiet. Breakfast was great and the staff very helpful. The hotel is a 10 to 15 minute bus ride from downtown. A taxi will cost you from the train station from 12 to 15 Euro. Going back by taxi costs more. It was interesting to see an area of Florence around the hotel that is not part of the tourist center. There is a mall with a very large Coop supermarket a two minute walk from the hotel.

Stayed 4 nights in this clean and comfortable hotel. All staff were excellent by particular mention to owner Monica who was especially helpful. A bit out of town but an easy bus ride away from the city centre. Loved the breakfast room and the breakfasts. Thoroughly recommend if you want a quiet place to stay.

Authentic good restaurant adjacent
Fabulous ice cream shop and supermarket nearby

We booked 3 nights here and the rooms were very comfortable, clean, and well appointed. Will stay again next trip. Monica the owner was extremely knowledgable and helpful in all our planning. Excellent breakfasts and tea rooms. As well as aperitifs and cookies.

A fantastic small hotel, 30 mins walk or short bus ride to the river or piazza Michelangelo. The location might not be central, but staying a little further outside from the centre meant amazing value for money and gave the opportunity to sample a local area. The hotel was easy to get to (the 23 bus from the station).

The room was spacious, nicely furnished and super clean. The furnishings around the hotel were gorgeous - including a beautiful lounge area with a small 'help yourself' spirit bar and afternoon tea. Breakfast was in a small dining room and the food choice was good (juices, yoghurts, breads, cheese, meats, pastries and cakes). A great team of friendly and helpful people.

The pizzeria next door was superb for dining in and for takeout.

Overall, I would most definitely recommend this hotel and look forward to staying again.

This place delivers what it says ..go for it if you are looking for a cozy, charming little place in Florence. What it lacks in luxury and comforts is more than compensated by the hospitality of the host. The owner is a very helpful lady and more than happy to go out of the way to assist with any tour advice /arrangements required. They also do great breakfast and we absolutely loved the homely feel of it.

This hotel is about 30 mins stroll from the Ponte Vecchio. Alternatively, several frequent bus-routes will whisk you there in 5 minutes. Parking available at E9 per night is located across the main road and in Florence, this is reasonable and useful.
Reception is on the first floor as were our rooms. Booking in was painless and pleasant. The rooms were medium in size, well maintained and full of character. All the facilities were in full working order. A comfortable small tea-room (with aperitifs and snacks) is available, free of charge, at any time of day. It really is a 'home from home'.
The very friendly owners and staff directed us to 3 excellent restaurants (2 of them very close to the hotel). The charming breakfast room provides the best of the continental variety.
Much of the produce is obviousy home-made. The service provided by Tamara was exemplary.
If we ever return to Florence, we will return to the Hotel Rosary Garden
