“Centrally located hotel”
Reviewed 17 February 2014

A very comfortable, affordable option to get around in Florence...just 2 minutes away from the train station and 5 minutes away from the city center. Reception staff were very helpful, wi-fi free and fast, nice breakfast at a very good price - you basically cannot beat the breakfast price. The only negative point about the hotel is the bed which was too soft for our tastes. Furthermore if you choose the dependance be prepared to go up the stairs...we were prepared for it...so it was ok. Enjoyable stay overall

Room Tip: If you are choosing the dependance...be prepared for the stairs!

I gave it full 5 stars as the location was awesome!!! ok lets get down to logistic of the hotel.

Price: it is very affordable 2 and half star hotel and meets the price point of any living.

Location: best location in Florence. The plus point is its close to the main station....very very close like 5 mins. Its walking distance from all major tourist attractions.

Wifi: the wifi is great and its has pretty strong and works very smooth.

Room cleaning: the cleaning was really great and they cleaned the room and washroom everyday.

Room: was good size and has all the essential. My room was on the second floor and the elevator goes up till second floor after that you will take the stairs. There is safe in the room. The mattress was good to sleep in and we woke up fresh!

Washroom: was good size and shower had warm water all the time and no leakages.

reception: service at the reception was good and the various staff we dealt with were friendly and understood English and replied back in English.

There is bar beside the hotel and couple of restaurants.

Room Tip: get a room till second floor so you don't have to take the stairs.

Best option in Florence. Well located, 5 minute walk from train station and within walking distance to city centre. Friendly staff, comfortable rooms with private bathrooms and AC. Very good Wi-Fi access in all rooms. Other remarkable characteristics are its substantial breakfast and its cleanliness. I strongly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Second floor accessed by modern lift. AC unit worked perfectly

This hotel is located a few minutes walk from the train station and about 10-15 minute walk to the heart of Florence. Florence is small and therefore the location of the hotel is always going to be quite decent.

My room on the 2nd floor won't win any interior design awards but was of a decent size. The bathroom was good and there is a safe and free wifi. My only comments were that the bed was hard and whatever they use to clean the rooms has a strong smell to it. The staff were excellent and extremely helpful which is always appreciated when you first arrive in a new city.

My recommendation is to request a room on the first floor. The lift only goes to level one and after that it is a long walk down a corridor and then up some more stairs to level 2 and 3. It's an odd building layout and if you have a lot of luggage it will be a hassle. I also note that the rooms on level 1 appeared to be newer than the one I stayed in. The hotel does offer breakfast for €5 however there is a number of cafés in the area to choose from.

We The didn't book our hotel before we arrived but when we entered the hotel Montreal the receptionist lady named Erika was very patient with us even if we asked many questions and changed our mi diesel. She even allowed us to use their wifi to connect to the Internet even before we decided to book the hotel. The hotel room was big and modern, bathroom marvels tiles were so new and well maintained. The breakfast was also very good too. It was the best hotel I have stayed in Italy . Thank you Erika

We stayed at this hotel for 4 days, as florence was our hub to visit the places in Tuscany region. The hotel is close to the train station (max 5 mins walk)
Room was the biggest I have had anywhere in Italy. Clean and tidy and the bed was comfortable.
ony thing It does not have a fridge in the room.
Staff are courteous and very helpful. They helped us oragnise trips to place as well as guided us where we could have visited on our own without spending high on tours. Also allowed us use their microwave to heat the food we had got, which I am not sure if other hotels would allow.
We had not taken the breakfast option hence cant comment on it.
Bathroom was big enough and clean, we had a problem the first day with the washbasin where water got accumulated but it was resolved the next morning.
Our room was on 2nd floor and was too far from the reception looked as if we were going to another area, but the room was good.

My wife and I only had one day to spend in Florence and we needed to find a Hotel fast. We came across The Hotel Montreal here on Trip Advisor. We saw some very good reviews but you never know. However, it was an excellent choice for us. We had a rental car and the parking laws have changed since we were last in Florence 20 years ago. Parking is very expensive and Florence traffic generally means that if you find a place you have to lug your luggage to your hotel and you can waste hours looking and then doing that . Well, The Hotel Montreal actually has a service (at a very reasonable rate too) that will pick up your car when you check in and return it when you leave. In addition to that the staff was very friendly and helpful. The accommodations were very good as well. As far as location is concerned it was perfect. Just outside of the main part of town it is a very easy walk to everything you want to see and there are excellent restaurants stumbling distance from the hotels doorstep. If you need digs in Florence look no further
