Hotel Angelica
Ranked #224 of 411 Hotels in Florence
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 December 2013

The hotel is just round the corner from the Florence main station and thus is easily accessible to the centre. The service of the hotel staff (an old lady) was very nice. She helped us book travel passes from the hotel to visit leaning tower of Pisa and the centre of Florence. The breakfast in the morning is quite small but available from 6am, which is good to start your day early.

I chose to stay at Hotel Angelica based on the TripAdvisor reviews and was exrtremely disappointed. It needs to be made clear that the word hotel does conjur some expectations that you will not experience here. It is a floor in a building that feels more like a hostel than hotel. Walls are paper thin and you can hear every conversation and sound throughout. The facilities and breakfast are very average and all staff (except 1) speak only Italian - so any help or information needs to be found elsewhere.
It is true the rooms are kept exceptionally clean and its a central location - but thats it.
I understand Florence is expensive but this is overpriced and misleading.

Hello,
I am sorrey that you think my Hotel is a Hostel but beleive me in Italy the laws to obtain Hotel standerds are very strict and this has always been a Hotel since 1925. As far as the English speaking is concerned i woul like to let you no that i am Native English, my parents lived in London for 35 years and speak very good English, and if i am not mistaken you decided to come to Italy were Italian is spoken, so maybe you should try learing Italian next time if you come over.
All the Best
Fernando Siringo.

Hotel Angelica is only a few minutes walk from the train station. It is located on the 3rd floor, there is a small lift. The hotel closes at 1am. We booked a double room but were given one that rather resembled a single - it was very small and the bed was too small for us. There was no night lamp, no fridge, no kettle. The toilet seat was a little broken and the walls were a bit stained. It was very clean however and the staff were extremely nice and friendly. The breakfast was good - bread, croissants, ham and cheese, cereal, tea, coffee, juice etc. Good for a short stay in Florence.

We booked Hotel Angelica online, with no idea of what we were looking at. To say we were surprised that it was simply a few rooms on the 3rd floor of a building, is an understatement. BUT (and big BUT here), we were treated so kindly, and felt totally at home and well cared for. Getting big luggage in and out of the lift was a bit of an issue, and climbing the many stairs was out of the question - but even with that, we loved the place and would go back.

Location just around the corner from the station is great for anyone arriving by train or taking a bus tour.

Rooms are clean, but if you don't like the sound of street cleaners or tourists arguing in the street at 1am take a room without a balcony. The balconies are unusable anyway.

Probably unique to our stay, the air conditioning didn't work (I think This affected a number of rooms) but the manager loaned us a fan which was helpful.

The shower didn't drain, so quickly became a bath, but it didn't seem a surprise to the manager. No fix for it as they had no drain-o.

Service was friendly and helpful with good English, but lack of working aircon and faulty shower let the experience down. If all was working fine the room would have rated a 3.

I spent one perfect day in Florence and this Hotel fit the bill. Close to everything and the right price for clean accommodation. third floor location but there is a small lift so you don't have to hike your luggage up flights of stairs. It rained the other night and I was tired so I ran down the street to a Deli type shop and had a very nice take out meal. Everything you need is close. Rooms have AC so you can close the window and shut out the sounds of the city. I would stay here again.

Location is great - train station is round the corner, Cathedral, all the main sights are at the walking distance, friendly talkative and kind staff.
There is a luggage room, where you can leave your staff and have a walk in the city, if you depart late.

There were no fridge, tea/coffee facilities
