“A reasonably well located mediocre hotel”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2013

Hotel Victoria is a hotel in desperate need of a facelift. Actually, that's probably too cosmetic... It needs a complete renovation. I had to book it as a last minute thing due to a change of plans, and it was heavily discounted due to the timing. I'm unsurprised the hotel still had vacancies.

I have to commend the staff who were extremely pleasant to deal with... But the decaying building really made for a fairly underwhelming experience. The location is great if you're in transit near the train station and its not far from the hustle and bustle... Otherwise I'd probably look elsewhere.

Stayed here for 3 nights - as noted by others it is very centrally located within easy walking of both train station and centre of florence. However, it is in a slightly dingy part of town. On the plus side, there were plenty of cheap restaurants nearby, and a great little bar.

Hotel itself was clean, with decent sized rooms and bathrooms. Heating only comes m from 6pm, however one of the staff did turn it on early for us. The bed was very comfy and clean, but we only got 2 pillows (common, in our experience). Room did have a slight smell of old cigarette ash which would probably be fixed with new carpets.

Breakfast was petty terrible - only cornflakes for cereal, plus sweet croissants, bread rolls& jam selection, and fruit yogurt. Had to get coffee from an instant machine, even though there were 3 espresso machines that staff used to make coffee for themselves! Juice also from a machine - sickly sweet and not very nice.

Overall - ok if you're on a budget but needs some work.

Stayed February 2013

There's nothing bad but also nothing extraordinary good to say about this place.

Plus:

- The location is incredible
- The rooms are very well temperatured

Minus:

- The bathrooms are very old
- I think 3 € taxes per day is a little rip off

The stafft was nice!

This hotel is well located ,near the station and centers of interest. The bed was a little hard but the bathroom was tiled,clean and working well.The staff was friendly with theexception of Ricardo the manager. He was very rude. The refrigerator in my room did not work, when I asked for a place to put a bottle of juice,his answer was " You rented a room not a refrigerator" Eventualy,after I insisted, he allow me to put in one in the lobby.

Great location and service at the desk was great. It's not the fanciest place but it's clean and roomy and close to everything including the train station.

Great location which was good, close to town and train station. Rooms were overpriced, some staff were great and others lacked people skills. Room 60 had a very load air conditioning unit outside.
