“Great location and friendly staff!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2011

This hotel was very close to the train station and within easy walking distance. Our room was very adequate and clean. Nothing super fancy, but great. We really enjoyed the breakfast buffet served in the courtyard every morning for it had a great variety for everyone's tastebuds. Being close to all the attractions made this hotel ideal for location and value. We would stay here again.

Room Tip: All the rooms seemed to be similar, quiet and clean.

We have stayed with friends in double and triple room of this hotel for two days during our two week Italy trip. It's good located - not in the main touristic center but very close to it, staying in quiet location full of stores, restoraunts and etc., and very comfortable walking distance to Santa Maria Novella (it takes about 15 minutes if you are with heavy luggage and only 8-10 minutes if you are not). Quiet close to it you could find Mercato Centrale where you could buy fresh fruits, cheese (hmmm), olive oil and all other different tasty italian products. Also on your way toward Ufizzi and Palazzo Vecchio (about 15 minutes walk) you could see a lot of street shops where you could buy Florence leather and souvenirs. Hotel itself has an elevator so it was very comfortable, the room (triple) was quiet spacy, with clean bathroom, comfortable beds, wardrobe, safe. Breakfast was also good for italian standarts. They have wi-fi internet in public areas which was free. And what's very very important they have great staff and always greeting us with smile, were very helpful in directions and advises. Thanks to all. I hope somewhen we will be back.

I stayed at this hotel when visiting Italy with my parents, in April. It's what we expected for the money. Staff was very friendly and always ready to help. It's walking distance from the street fair, central market and train station, but the street is not the nicest at night. The room was simple and could be cleaner. Bathroom had dust balls from years, the water in the tub wouldn't go away, so having a shower wasn't the best experience. We noticed that there were hotels of the same level closer to the tourist attractions, so I'd probably look for a different option if I went to Florence again.

This was a nice choice of a hotel for us. Nothing fancy, but a good quality hotel with a good price, It was within a short walk of the train station and all the cultural attactions in Florence. There was also a laudromat close by as well as a Dollar Store...we had to load up on Diet Cokes.

The room was comfortable and the shower was hot and had plenty of pressure. The breakfast was good and the staff was friendly. It was kinda noisy outside on the street on Saturday night with partiers, but it was tolerable.

We will stay here again if we ever come back to Florence.

I just came back from Italy and I happen to stay at this hotel with my parents. We booked this hotel at the last minute with a bit of doubt as we were not sure what we were going to get. Our stay was fantastic! We loved the location as it is very close (walking distance) to the train station ad other attractions. The property is old but very well maintained. Our room was very comfortable, spacious and most important very clean. We also had breakfast every morning which was very complete and well served. The service was excellent; everyone was very helpful and super friendly. Next time I go to Florence I will definitely stay here with n doubt. I highly recommended it.
For a last minute booking, I was vry happy that we got so lucky with this hotel.

Happy Travels.

I stayed at the Hotel Eden during a recent trip to Paris, Florence and Rome, as part of a travel tour with our senior class from our school. We arrived early in the morning, fresh off an overnight train from Paris, and were a bit bedraggled, having walked from the train station when the promised bus didn't arrive. The staff graciously let us drop our luggage in our rooms at the early hour, and we immediately felt welcome. The lobby, although small, was nicely appointed, and the breakfast room was cheery, with a bar and espresso machine prominent (yeah!). We didn't spend much time at the hotel, as we walked throughout the town from morning til night, but the rooms were comfortable, bathrooms were large and had blowdryers, which was important to all the girls! The bathrooms also had bidets, which I'm not sure anyone attempted! The morning breakfast service was impeccable. GREAT coffee, lattes, cappuccinos, whatever you wanted, all made to order in a fantastic espresso machine that was as fast as I've ever seen. The breakfast included the ubiquitous Italian dry toast packages, Nutella and other spreads, wonderful yogurt, fresh croissants and pastry, cold cereal choices, two kinds of juice, cheese wedges (like Laughing Cow) and of course the wonderful coffee. They even bring you a second one if you ask! Get the "Caffe Latte", it's the best, in a tall glass - yum! The front desk was helpful, they spoke English quite well, and were able to help us with some directions. There's a fun little breakfast/cafe/stand-up bar on the corner, we visited one night for cappuccino and wine, lots of fun! We didn't pay a room rate because we were with a tour, but at $130 a night or so this is a bargain. I'm sure there are fancier and more expensive hotels in Florence - it's such an amazing city - but we were happy here. It's closer to the train station that the center of town, but we walked everywhere and it was not a problem. Don't miss the market, open 9-7 every day - fabulous deals on Florencian made scarves, leather goods, t-shirts, pretty much every souvenir you could imagine. You don't have to bargain, but it's fun. They are much more willing to give you a "deal" if you purchase multiple quantities. 100% Cashmere scarves for 5 Euro, you can't beat it!

I'm not really a 2 star girl but this hotel was fine it was clean and tidy. Unfortunately the TV was only in Italian. The staff were friendly and helpful and I felt comfortable staying there as a solo female traveller.
