Fortunately for us, Florence is a magical city and we still had a great time. After looking at all the photos of Hotel Collodi, we were excited to book a room here for our 3 night stay in Florence. Asides from the great location, friendly staff, and cleanliness, there is really nothing positive left to say about this hotel.

Our room was very small; once you entered there was a short hallway which opened up to a square room maybe 1.5 feet larger than the bed all the way around. The bed itself was very uncomfortable, you can tell they have taken two beds and pushed them together to make a larger bed for a couple. This makes it very difficult to sleep in the middle as you can constantly feel the crack. Another thing is the towels, if they can even be called that. They were more like tablecloths in both their thinness and consistency. The hair dryer was also broken in our room.
As other reviewers have also mentioned, the breakfast was very disappointing.

Either the pictures were extremely misleading, or perhaps we were given the one room that is vastly underwhelming. I would not recommend this hotel to other travellers. For this expensive price you can find something MUCH better in Florence!

We stayed for 5 days at the Hotel Collodi. The site of the Hotel is perfect - we did everything on foot. The family appartment was very quiet. There is no noise at all during the night, no cars no pedestrians. The situation is near the Leather market, about 10 min walk from the main railway station Firenze SMN.
The breakfast was quite basic.
On my next stay in Florence I will go back to the Hotel Collodi.

Very recommended.

This is a traditional italian hotel, even do we were on the 3rd floor and they don't have elevator up there. The room was very nice, the service amazing and just few blocks from all the atractions

Room Tip: Just in front there is a Convinience store where you can buy some wine, sodas and all you need for a...

The bed wasn't overly comfortable, and breakfast was all prepackaged - but the location was great and the price was fantastic! I would recommend it and will definitely stay there again next time we're in Florence.

the location is great! It is next to the market and walking distance to the train station and most of the attractions. A supermarket is close by and it is great source for supplies such as water and snacks. We even sometimes take bathroom breaks back in hotel. The staff is friendly and speak great English. The only downside is that the bath towel feels a bit rough and we got no cell phone service (TIM) in the room. However, the wifi is free and the router is inside so the signal is excellent. Further, the room is really big.

Good location, very centrally located. We visited most of the attraction by foots but lost our way a few times cause it's quite complicated, every street looks the same to us. Remember to get the map with you.

The hotel owner is friendly and helpful, checked-in was done pretty quickly. But negative thing was the lift only serve to level 2 but we stayed level 3, some more we carried 2 big luggages. Strange thing was we managed to check-in and carried the luggages up then only realized the room still not yet ready, housekeeper was in the room.

Overall the room was very spacious and clean. The staff helped us made a few phone calls to hire a driver.

Room Tip: avoid higher floor unless you don't have big luggage cause lift only serve to level 2.
