My wife and I have just visited Florence and we have to say the hotel we stayed in although 2 star gave a 4 star service. The Angelica hotel is superbly placed to visit all the main tourist venues and is just a 3 minute walk from the railway station. The hotel is family run and they could not have been more helpful. The room we had was of an adequate size and very clean with a really nice en suite bathroom.

The breakfast was of the continental style with proper english tea available. The hotel occupies the third floor of the building and is quite small. There is the inevitable noise you expect in cities with traffic and revellers but this did not affect our stay too much.

A very good experience and we will definetly stay at this hotel again.

Great location, near the train station, restaurants and tourist attractions. Good Price for what it offers. Staff willing to provide information. Good breakfast. Comfortable and clean room. I recommend the stay.
The heater didn't work very well at night. They could provide the wi-fi signal inside the room. The curfew about midnight can be a problem for your plans.

I know I typed a three on location and a four on rooms, but overall it is a five! Because the service was really a ten! They were so friendly and helpfull and you really get to know the hosts of the hotel. It's located just by the trainstation so you don't have to worry about carrying your suitecases for long, but it's quite a walk down to the city center.. The breakfast was really yummy! And the hosts spoke good English.

This hotel is conveniently located within walking distance of the major tourist sites. It is also very close to the train and bus stations for those wishing to take day trips to nearby cities. We stayed here on a trip to Florence in 2008 and were so charmed by the delightful owners and their pride in the hotel that we ensured a stay again this year. We appreciated the owners' interest in their guests and their suggestions for visiting Italy. The rooms are clean and the area is quiet in the evening.

I stayed here with my parents and loved it! The family that runs this hotel is extremely nice and helpful. I would stay here again and again.

The hotel is located a stone throw away from S.M. Novella train station and can be easily reached by foot. It is on the third floor and the building does have an elevator - somewhat antiquated but it does the trick.

If you stay here you will be able to walk to the San Lorenzo market in 2 minutes.

We stayed in a triple room. The room had AC, TV with local stations, a small balcony and your standard European bathroom.

Breakfast is served from 7:30am to 9:30am so you will need to be an early riser to catch this one - fortunately we did. For breakfast there was coffee and tea, orange juice, milk, yogurt, typical Italian style pastries, nutella, jams, buns, meats and cheeses to make sandwiches. Wake up early to get the best of the pastries - everything is fresh daily. There are only 4 tables in the breakfast area which serves this hotel well.

The staff made excellent recommendations for places to eat and visit. The only change I would make is adding a mini-fridge to each room.

Thank you both for an excellent stay while in Florence.

The Hotel Angelica is only two blocks from the train station and about three blocks from the historic city center. It is located on the 4th floor of late 19th century building in a very urban part of Florence. An old fashioned (and tiny) lift takes one to the hotel lobby where you are buzzed in (one is also buzzed in at the street door so it is very secure). The owners live in the building and are very protective - they take your key each time you leave- make sure you ask for a map of the city so you can find sites and your way back to the hotel.
The quad room was large and clean with a modern and good-sized bathroom. There was a lot of street noise even five stories up when the window was open, but the room was air-conditioned so we just closed it and were very comfortable. The breakfast was quite plain, but the breakfast room was nice.
It is a good, clean family run budget hotel.
