Reviewed 24 July 2013

1 night stay in July 2013 and it was perfect. Booked two rooms for our party of four.
The Hotel is very modern style decor. Very comfortable beds and amenities. Everything was neat and clean.
Alessandra at the front desk was one of the most helpful, cheery, and friendly people I've ever met, all the while handling the multitude of tasks and requests she faced. Thank You very much for holding our luggage in safe storage until our train departure. It gave us a chance to take one more stroll through Florence and some more shopping.

The hotel is located less than 5 minutes walk from the S.M.N. Train Station - perfect.
It is a bit difficult to locate as it doesn't have the typical street-front presence, but follow the address and number provided, or use StreetView for familiarization.
I would definitely stay at this hotel again and would recommend it.
Arrivederci!

The main advantage of this hotel is its location. It is just across the street from the Santa Maria Novella train station and is very central for exploring Florence on foot. The girl at reception was very friendly and provided us with maps and recommendations of what to see and do while visiting Florence. The bedroom was a little disappointing, it was just off the breakfast room so it was quite noisy from 6am in the morning. Also construction work was ongoing during our stay which added to the noise in the mornings. It didn't really bother us too much as we were up early in the mornings anyway, but it might be a big issue for other guests. The bedroom was very old traditional decor but was a decent size. However, the bathroom is tiny! On our last night, we arrived back at the hotel around 1am and the night porter had locked the front door. We pressed the buzzer several times, we could see him watching tv inside. We were standing outside approx 5 minutes before he eventually opened the door! I would recommend this hotel for its great location and the helpful receptionists.

Overall, this hotel was just perfect for what my husband and I were seeking during our stay in Florence! The hotel was so close to the train station (about a 5 minute walk – if that). And while the street it is located on was not as appealing as the rest of the city streets (I believe there was some construction going on), it was still so close to the city center that it didn’t even matter, and we didn’t even notice because it really wasn’t even that bad. One walk to the nearest block and a turn or two and you were in front of all that Florence has to offer.

The staff was extremely friendly and helpful! I felt very safe here. The rooms were very nice, although our room didn’t look like any of the pictures people have posted on TripAdvisor. I think we may have gotten an older room maybe? Also, our room was very dark. There was not much natural light, which I realize when you are in a city, it won’t always be possible, so this was not a deal breaker, only an observation. My only complaint might be that the showers were so small. My husband and I are both tall, so we noticed this right away. But other than that, bathrooms were modern and clean. A great stay at Hotel Cosimo de Medici!!

A clean & comfortable hotel only 10 mins walk to the Duomo & less than 5 mins walk to the main train station.
Some rooms are small & look out onto the central courtyard where building work is ongoing. It will be much better when it is finished & you can sit out in this courtyard.
Breakfast is quite basic but tasty.
Staff are all helpful & friendly.

We stayed in Hotel Cosimo de' Medici for two days. The good thing about the hotel was the great location. It was very close to the train station, and not to far away from the Duomo. We also loved the breakfast, which was fresh. One negative about the hotel, was the how old everything in the hotel was. There was also a lot of dust in the hotel, which caused a lot of sneezing in our family. Although the hotels location and service was great, the room itself wasn't that nice.

This hotel was really nice and clean! The breakfast was good and the staff was very helpful! We ate at La Gratella which was delicious. The front desk clerk suggested it. We walked everywhere and this hotel was in a great location for that. We also did a day tour and we met at the train station which was really convenient based on our location. We would definitely stay here again!
