“my stay at hotel sole, florence”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 October 2012

hotel sole was the perfect place for our stay in florence. it is near the train station and the city centre. A pleasant short walk to all of the city's sightseeing places (uffizi, accademia, duomo).
it was very clean and the room was cozy with warm colours. the staff was very friendly and polite and the guy speaks very good english for those who don't speak italian. Overall we were very happy we stayed there and it's good value for money. I would definetly recommend it and in case we're going back to florence we would stay there again!

The hotel was a very good value. It was located walking distance from the train station and was a very short 5-10 min walk from all major sights. The room was spacious, had air conditioning, and wifi was included. The staff were very hospitable and helpful with any concern we had. The staff were basically available at any time from morning to the late evening, which was unusual compared to other small hotels in Italy where staff were only present by appointment.

Breakfast was not included, but the staff kindly allowed us to put our groceries in their fridge.

Top priority for me is to be in a place that is clean, Hotel Sole rooms although basic furniture wise, looked clean and the bathroom too. Every day coming back after a long day sightseeing in Florence and around, the room smelled nice, and everything looked tied up and clean. The location is very convenient if you are planning trips using the trains from Santa Maria Novella train Station, and also at walking distances from all major tourist attractions in Florence. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. The hotel is basically located in the 3rd floor of the building (with a small lift), it was quiet and we had a good night sleep every day.
