Hotel Eden
Ranked #240 of 410 Hotels in Florence
Reviewed 7 November 2012

This hotel was great because of its amazing value and location. It is a 5 minute walk from Santa Maria Novella train station, so it is in the middle of everything. Despite its central location, the rooms are very quiet and peaceful. The room was a good size (I had one with 4 twins in it) and everything was clean and neat. The best part was that breakfast was included with the stay at no extra cost. I was expecting breakfast to be something very simple, like a juicebox and a cornetto, but Hotel Eden surprised me. It wasn't anything fancy, but definitely more than I was expecting. Overall, you cannot beat the price and value of this hotel. If I was going back to Florence I would definitely stay here again. I recommend this place to everyone!!!

Stayed for 3 nights in October. Decent sized clean room (although slightly dated) good powerful shower, comfortable bed and excellent location. Just 10 mins from the train station in one direction and the Duomo in the other.

Good value, friendly English speaking staff, great location and a comfortable room. What more do you need from a city break hotel?

Hotel is around 300 mtrs from station which is not quite far, though while walking on the busy street and busy sidewalks might make it feel little far. Duomo is around 5 min walk and from there Piazza del Signoria, Ponte Vecchio all are walkable.

We stayed here for one night in a quadruple room. Room was of good size for our family of 4. It was clean, nice bed covers and well had a mini refrigerator as well. It was quite as well and we slept well.

Regarding the staff and service, it is mixed opinion. The lady there in mornings is very helpful, however the man whom we met at reception for just few minutes when we returned in night did not seem to care much.

Breakfast was included in the price and was basic with some choice of cookies, bread and milk and coffee.

Overall, we liked the hotel and would recommend for a short stay.

Hotel Eden was our base for visiting Florence. While the hotel was comfortable and the location was convenient to the train station, I would not stay in this area of Florence unless you need to be near the train station. Around the train station is pretty chaotic, with lots of traffic and noise. The room was spacious and clean. Breakfast was included and WIFI is available in the lobby. They have a contract with a local parking lot for 24E a day.

We stayed here thinking the location was great and seemed decent enough. But, the room was awful. Yes, the location is where we wanted, but the rooms are right on the busiest street in the entire city. We didn't sleep one minute it was so noisy. There were scuff marks all over the walls and furniture... floor was so dirty the bottom of my socks were black after walking around on it. The sheets were gross and the bathroom floor looked like it had never been mopped. Not a bad place to stay if you're looking for budget, not cleanliness. Also, the staff doesn't care much to help you with anything. I'd research all your options before booking here.

Room Tip: Try and stay on the opposite side of the main road if possible... but good luck with that.

Stayed there within the last few weeks, and would return again. Have never been to Italy, but recently traveled there from the U.S. with a group of students. Those who had rooms overlooking the front of the hotel did say that they were often awakened by loud people on the street. My room overlooked the rear of the hotel, and I slept like a baby. Loved the windows and shutters, and I flung them open every chance I got. It's an older property, but everything was tiled and clean. Our group did a lot of walking, but the hotel was in a good location. Only a 5-10 minute walk to the Duomo and less to the Accademia. Breakfast was fresh and we felt safe with our group staying there. After departing and spending a few nights in Rome at a much larger hotel, all of us - kids included - really missed the Hotel Eden. Never used the tv as we were always out sightseeing. Hair dryer, free WiFi in the lobby and convenient location were lovely.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the back side of the hotel for a quieter sleep and prettier view. Bring adapters.

Took a school group to Italy and stayed in this hotel for 4 nights. It suited our needs down to the ground. The students loved the free wifi in the foyer, I loved the lift (not all Italian hotels have them) and we all enjoyed how helpful and friendly the staff were. The breakfast was more than adequate (delicious fresh croissants and the students enjoyed the hot chocolate). The location was good - an easy walk to the train station, markets and the Duomo. I would stay here again either with a school group or with my family.
