“Hotel Fiorentino modest and perfect”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2014 via mobile

We have stayed here at least four times over the last seven years. It's perfectly located virtually across the road from the train station and close walking distance to all the main attractions. We move opening the windows and seeing and hearing the church bells from st. maria.novella church next door. You do need a bit of a work out climbing the 42 stairs to get to your room... But that's no bother at all.. The rooms are very clean and very good plumbing... It's an excellent stay I recommend it... And it's lovely to be remembered by the manager when we arrive each visit... Feel gret th the remembers us

Stayed April 2014, travelled as a couple

After being made to pre-pay (very unusual for Florence) and slogging 4 tall floors up we realized this hotel has no air conditioning, our room had no curtains or glasses for water, and the owner refused to address these issues - all in 100-degree heat. Needless to say that 1st night was pretty terrible (oh, the fan in the room ran at about 100 decibels plus there was a lot of street noise from illegal merchants selling goods out of blankets and yelling). Not wanting to spend 3 more nights here I asked if I could just pay for the one (miserable) night and get a refund for the rest. All of a sudden the owner's English disappeared and he kept repeating himself over and over like a maniac. Thought about calling the police but didn't want to ruin our vacation so I went to the tourist office near the station and they hooked us up at another hotel which was like a 7-star resort compared to this place. When I got back to the States I called Visa card services and fought his charges for several weeks, finally getting my money back. Travel occurred in June 2011

We stayed in this hotel for two nights during our recent trip to Florence. Very basic backpacker's type hotel with super tiny room and even tiny ensuite. No elevator so we had to drag all our luggege 68 steps up the stairs.
Very noisy while windows are open and very hot room if windows are closed. Cost us 4 euros per night for internet and 2 euros per luggage items to leave them in Reception.
Only positive being close to the train station. I would not recommend it unless you are on a real tight budget.

Room Tip: Avoid this hotel if you can help it

The draw-in of this hotel is its location. It is within walking distance from Florence's central train station (just in case you'll be arriving by train) - literally just across the street. It is right beside the Basilica of Sta. Maria Novella. But the hotel is a bit hard to find and not everyone in the area knows where exactly it is. Simply because it is a very small one and in Florence, there are many small accommodations that has a "Hotel" prefix to their names. A location map would help a lot which I wish the owner would provide to future guests. It is also within walking distance to the Duomo and other major landmarks in the city. If you fancy taking the bus tours, there's a City Sightseeing bus stop nearby. The drawbacks are the following: 1) the place is old. there is no elevator that serves the upper floors. So if you have some heavy luggage with you, good luck on that one. 2) the room we stayed in doesn't have a bathroom of it's own. There is a common bathroom that serves 3 or 4 rooms on a floor. So, you should plan your trips to the loo especially in the morning. Last but not the least 3) There is no aircon in the room rather, an electric fan was there to do the job. We stayed there in September, so it was not an issue to us. Sandro the owner is ok, helpful and knows his English language well. Wifi connection was given to us for free. We were there to walk around and appreciate the beauty of the city. So the drawbacks didn't bother us that much.

I stayed 2 nights in September during a very hot week.

- Manager made me pay at check in, which was unusual compared to the other places I stayed in Italy.
- Room had no AC and was super small.
- Internet costs 2 euros/ hour or 5 euros/day.
- And what was most outrageous was that I was told by the manager it would cost me 5 EUROS to print ONE PAGE from my train ticket.

Manager is clearly moved by the money.

Only good thing is the location, right by train/bus station.

For the past six years has been my official hotel in Florence. Its owner, Sandro and his inseparable dog Sufi and they await our arrival each year . The rooms are very comfortable and clean unsurpassed. Its excellent location, just steps to the right side of the train station Santa Maria Novella and adjacent to the cathedral of the same name and its square. All places of interest are within walking distance of it...
