Hilton Florence Metropole
Ranked #151 of 410 Hotels in Florence
Reviewed 30 September 2013

Check-in and check-out was quick and fuss-free.

The location of the hotel is not the best for tourist, but there is a free shuttle service (every 30-90 minutes depending on the time). The ride to the pick-up/drop-off point (opposite Firenze Santa Maria Novella stazione) is about 15-30 minutes, depending on traffic. It's a good pick-up/drop-off point as it's walking distance from most attractions. A tip: Get to the pick-up point slightly early if you don't want to risk not getting a seat in the bus! That said, the hotel is close to the airport!

The Executive Lounge has a nice view but poor canapé. And the breakfast spread was very basic.

As previously mentioned by a few reviewers, the internal walls are kind of thin. Every door slam or chatting outside the room door seemed to be amplified ... And they could also go with a bigger in-room television ...

In short, for the price paid for the room, this hotel meets all the basics.

Everything at this hotel was great. From the point of checkin, to checkout, we were treated very well. We had two rooms and both were nice. The executive lounge was wonderful. being on one of the upper floors, with an outside seating area that gave you a wonderful view of the city and the surrounding area. Although not super close to city center, they did have a shuttle that runs on a regular schedule to get you to and from. The only downside with the shuttle, and it seems to be the norm in Europe you have to line up for the shuttle 15 to 30 minutes prior to departure time, otherwise you run the risk of not getting a seat. Again it would seem the simple solution is to add another shuttle. The folks at the front desk were fantastic!!!!!!!! They were extremely helpful with making restaurant recommendations, and making reservations for both diner and for visiting the David statue.

This is a big hint. If you plan on visiting the statue of David, the lines can run 2 to 3 hours to get in. For only a couple of dollars more per person, the hotel can make a reservation for you so you can just walk up at your appointed time pay for your tickets and walk right in.

What a great staff that appreciates their guests!!!,

The Hilton Metropole is located in a great location if you're hear for business; close to the airport and the Autostrada, inexpensive (for a Florence hotel), with good meeting spaces and dining options. A mall next door adds convenience if you need any sundries or office supply materials.

The hotel rooms are very modern and fittings & furnishings are new. My bed was a bit too firm for my liking and the air-con is noisy if on a high setting. Bathrooms are very nice; no bathtub but a nice walk-in shower with rainfall head, heated marble floors and a crystal vanity.

I'm told there's a great roof-top bar with views to Florence city centre, I never made it up there... Shuttle to Florence runs frequently, very convenient if time allows for some exploration & sight-seeing. Overall I was very pleased and will return the next time I visit the area.

Highly recommended +++++

Location is the main drawback. You need the Hotel Shuttle or a taxi to go to any of the city's attractions.
Check in/out were swift but the staff omitted to charge the first night (booked through AmEx and called me to ask me permission to charge my card).
Sleeping quality is very good but the bed head is distant from the wall which was annoying.
The room is very clean and new, with a fresh feeling. It helped to recover from a long day's stroll! The TV is way too small and it has no on demand entertainment.
Breakfast was good and up to Hilton standard but the toaster was broken. The restaurant staff toasted some bread in the oven... but not quite the same thing.

This is a comfortable business-type hotel about 20 minutes by car or taxi from Florence centre. Taxis usually take only 3-4 minutes to arrive when
you call. The area is charmless and modern in a 1980s (i.e. not good) way. There is a regular shuttle bus to the station if you don't want to pay for a taxi. Breakfast is OK, staff are OK, some more friendly than others. Lifts are irritatingly slow for a 14 storey hotel. Reasonably close to the airport (but still a taxi ride). The hotel bar is utterly soulless. Free wi-fi downstairs but €15 a day in your room. Bedrooms and bathrooms are good standard (4*)

Right up front, I am a long time Hilton Diamond member so very loyal to the brand. This hotel has grown on me from initial views that it was a little too far out of the city and a bit uninspiring to look at. However the pluses are: really nice friendly and helpful staff. Thanks for making our dining reservations. A nice simple Executive Lounge - maybe not the best ever but good views and friendly staff. Some free snacks and drinks and breakfast. The free shuttle bus not town takes 15-20 minutes but drops you by the station and it s just minutes on foot on the old town.

We had an upgrade to an executive room with city view which is very nice if a little small by Hilton room standards.

Florence was mega busy this week and whilst there are lots of old world hotels in the centre it was actually quite nice to get away from the crowds and noise.

All in I've come to like it here and enjoyed it. Didn't try the spa.

It's important to me to stay in a clean comfortable room after a hard day of sightseeing. This hotel totally delivered. Great clean room. Good breakfast. There is no pool though.
Yes, if was a bit of a hassle to get to the center, but the shuttle is free and it tries to run on schedule, so you can plan out your day more or less. The views from the top floor are awesome. The staff was very nice. I would stay there again.
