Hotel Eden
Ranked #241 of 411 Hotels in Florence
Reviewed 29 April 2014

This hotel is quaint, but that's about all it gets from me & my American standards. Everything is cramped. Lobby, breakfast area, rooms-all TINY.

For three people the room is crazy small. Three twin beds all smacked together. The bathroom is a bit better but with a small shower. Don't get why they put the outlet for the lamp right above my pillow-that's a hazard waiting to happen. Room also had a strange smell, but that's petty. Not much else in the room except a cabinet, nightstand, & TV.

Breakfast was small. Few pieces of sweetbread, maybe a pastry & some various jellies & jams & a drink was about it. Staff were hit & miss in terms of pleasantness.

There were plenty of four star hotels nearby that looked much better from the outside & that you could probably stay at for a better price given the quality.

Room Tip: If your room faces the street it's very loud with car, moped, & people noise until the bars...

I stayed here recently for a conference and had a very pleasant time in this hotel. The staff are very welcoming and friendly and accommodating. The breakfast is a nice typical Italian breakfast with great coffee. My room was not huge, but was comfortable and had a fridge, safe, TV, hair dryer, quite good amenities considering the very reasonable price. I had a room facing the street but didn't hear any street noise. The best thing was that I accidentally left my Kindle in the room after checking out and the staff were kind enough to send it back to me! It's an easy walk from the train station and the Duomo and the staff will give you a map and directions to anything you'd like to see. I had a great stay here and would recommend it to anyone looking for nice, basic accommodation in Florence.

My first time to Italy. I was with a tour group so this isn't the hotel I would have picked. No plushness. Everything was very basic. Nothing what I expected. The rooms had twin hard beds. No decorations. No small refrigerator, microwave, or lock box. Small shower. If you bent over, you would bump your head. No real breakfast. This was definitely a budget hotel for student tour groups. Definitely won't stay here again.

The hotel is located about a ten minute walk from the Firenze Santa Maria Novella station, which makes it very easy to get around. The rooms are basic and dormitory like, equipped with a clean functional bathroom. Although the room was average, the staff and their service well made up for any lacking features. We had the unfortunate event of having a passport stolen whilst touring in Pisa. The hotel staff were very accommodating and helpful in calling the police station several times on our behalf. The genuine concern they had for us made this hotel very memorable. Breakfast was basic yet adequate to start your day. One of the highlights of this hotel for us was the amazing coffee (cafe latte)!!!!!

I stayed in this hotel with my school and I really enjoyed my stay. The hotel is really nice, and all the rooms are different (different colours, furniture...). I stayed in a double room: it was spacious, with a big wardrobe and the bathroom was ok. The rooms are not very modern but clean and cozy.
For me, breakfast was ok: orange juice, hot chocolate or coffee, bread, biscuits...
The location is very convenient, next to the station and the city centre. Lots of shops and restaurants nearby. You can walk to anywhere: Ponte Vechio, Il Duomo, Santa Maria Novella, San Lorenzo Mercato Centrale, etc.
Regarding the staff, they were really nice and helpful.
I would definitely recommend this hotel.
P.S. Here are some photos of my room :)

Room Tip: My room in the third floor was overlooking a noisy street, but the truth is I didn't hear anythi...

Hotel Eden is an easy walk from the station trundling a bag. It is easy walking distance to the Duomo and the many fabulous sights of Florence. It is a short stroll from a street set up as a leather market, and close to a large produce market. The Hotel is two stars at best, being rather tired and in need of a make over. My single room was small but adequate, as was the bathroom. The furnishings were tired and the room was noisy, facing onto a busy street. The place still has some character, but location is the main attraction

Room Tip: Get one that does not face the street.

I stayed here with 40 senior level secondary school students on a tour of art sites in Florence. For this it was convenient and centrally placed. This is certainly not a luxury hotel but it was perfect for the group. All were placed together in rooms on the 2nd and 3rd floors. This suited us teachers to make sure they were quiet at night. The hotel put extra beds so the students were three and four in a room. The rooms are small but the bathrooms were clean and the showers worked well. I have stayed in many hotels for school groups but this was one of the best. Breakfast was adequate with cereal and yogurt and no complaints. The staff were friendly and helpful. For what it was I would have no hesitation in recommending this as school tour accommodation

Room Tip: If you are alone ask for a room on the 1st floor there may be another school group upstairs.
