It's not your usual 5 star fancy hotel but rather, it is a small charming hotel with a great location. The best part of the hotel - the staff - they made me feel geniuely welcomed. It's my first time in Florence and obviously doesn't know my way around and worse part was one of the tours I had booked was cancelled while I was there. The staff - Angela and the owner Francesco was very very helpful getting us booked on another sightseeing tour. While this hotel obviously cannot be compared to the 5 star hotel in amenities and the building, they have my vote for best service and warmth - it makes me feel very welcome and I'm definitely coming back again to this hotel. I would strongly recommend this hotel if you are looking for great location, value and great services.

The hotel is not high end but VERY well cared for and the staff is terrific! We had a lovely room with deck for under $90 --free WiFi. A 300 yard walk got us to a bus stop that for 1 euro (buy bus tickert at hotel) got us to the Florence RR station in the thick of it all! A 100 yard walk got us to Osteria Della Bistecca for a memorable ITALIAN family dinner. We WILL return!

Room Tip: We loved room 447

Flight leaving at 6am from Peretola. 3 minutes by taxi. Walls are thin. No more to say....except that there is a great restaurant across the street. La Bistecca is a genuine Tuscan restaurant with simple good food. The only others in this restaurant were Italian. The staff at Franchi were helpful and friendly.

Chose this hotel because of its close location to the airport as we arrived late in the evening. We had planed to stay only one night as we the next day would drive to Pisa. The location was perfect (close to the airport) and the price was very reasonable. No complaints. just don`t expect a 5 star hotel:-)

We stayed at Hotel Franchi (Frankie) on 3 occasions over a week or so due to travelling in and around Florence. We chose it in the first instance as It is very close to the airport with free parking (very handy if you have a car). We went back the other two times due to availability and cost – we found it much cheaper than other hotels in Florence. One reason may be that it is about a 15-20 minute bus journey away from the centre of the city.
We stayed on 3 different floors in different parts of the hotel so I feel that I have a good idea about the consistency of the rooms and service.
The rooms are basic, clean, and have air-conditioning. The ensuite bathrooms are functional and clean. However, there is no consistency to the items in the rooms - one room had the fridge stocked, another had it locked etc. Another seemed more modern or better looked after. The beds and pillows were adequate. As per other reviews, please note the lift is very small and will only fit roughly 1 person and 1 bag at a time. There is free secured Wifi.
Bring earplugs as the window shutters and other hotel noises might disturb a light sleeper.
Breakfast was typical, basic hotel fare and the coffee was acceptable.
The front desk staff speak English and were friendly, and helpful in terms of explaining transport (you can buy bus tickets from them) and arranging a taxi for an early morning run.
I would not stay here if I were holidaying in Florence for any length of time. However, for a short stay it is a perfect no frills, stop-over hotel that does what it says on the tin.
