Only stayed at this hotel for 1 night, however were very impressed. Great location, less than 5 minute walk from main train station. Very nice, quiet room and fantastic, helpful staff. The breakfast was also delicious.

No views but location is so central to everything, breakfast was plentiful and staff are very friendly and helpful. Our room was fantastic with a terrific bathroom. I really would not stay anywhere else as it is a great home base for a busy tourist.

Room Tip: I think we must've been in a disabled room as the bathroom was enormous and very well equipped...

Loved the hotel and the location. The people were amazing and helpful. It's pretty tight quarters and not much of a view from the room, but super clean and updated. The breakfast was quite nice. We had fruit, yogurt, a choice of cereals and the usual meat, cheese and bread selection. Plus my green tea! Truly a great place for a great price.

This hotel is in an excellent location just a few blocks from the train station. The staff was extremely friendly and the room was clean. There is a small breakfast served in the morning. It isn't much but it is enough. Overall an excellent hotel.

I was shocked at how nice this room was. I was expecting much less considering the excellent price. It was clean and comfortable and the staff was really, really friendly and welcoming. I would definitely recommend this place and will plan to stay here next time I'm in Florence.

So all Florence is at a walking distance from all the main attractions. Hotel Globus is located at 5mins walk from the Firenze Santa Maria Novella train station. Great location to go catch buses at the station, for instance to go to the Piazza Michelangelo, Pitti Palace or Boboli Gardens. The room was really small though, just enough space to walk around the room, lay down, and that's it. Bathroom was really small also, I guess it was barely 1x1 size. It is located next to the central market, making it great for buying souvenirs and leather bags, belts, shoes, etc. One other thing that caught our attention is that it was surrounded by chinese stores and restaurants, almost like a mini china town going on that street. Breakfast area is really small, so make sure to get there either earlier or later. The hotel is located at the second floor onwards, the elevator is really scary, because it's one of those like temporary elevators? I don't know.. it's like 1X1 also really small and when you hop on, it even sinks a bit, not for me. Apart from that, the staff was incredibly friendly, I didn't catch his name, but this guy from Poland was really helpful and provided us all the information we needed to tour around Florence. We didn't have a fantastic view from the window, we were looking at the back patio, but again, when you travel is not for staying at the hotel but to go out ant get to know the place.

Room Tip: Ask for a lower room in case you don't want to use the elevator or climb stairs.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Hotel Globus was completely renovated in June 2016. The new reception area, located on the street level of Via Sant'Antonino, is now connected to all rooms thanks to our new elevator. The new breakfast area overlooks a small courtyard with a nice vertical garden. Our staff is a mixture of all ages, languages, cultures and countries, always smiling and willing to offer you tips on places to visit, restaurants to try. They're always there for you. For what regards our location, it is definitely one of the key features of Globus. The proximity to all the Santa Maria Novella train station and all main attractions, including the Duomo, both major museums (Uffizi and Accademia Galleries) or Ponte Vecchio, among others, makes it very easy to plan even the busiest day without the need to lose time getting from the hotel to your desired location. What makes our neighbourhood special though is definitely the Mercato Centrale, located just around the corner from here. In the morning, that is where you want to go if you're planning to buy some food to take back home, or simply want to try the famous Tuscan specialties, "trippa" and "lampredotto". Where this place shines though is the 1st floor, open from 10am until midnight. It's a big, modern open space with many restaurants, serving a variety of really delicious food. Make sure to check it out! ... more   less
