“not again”
Reviewed 17 July 2004

This is the only bad review I have given to any of the 7 places I stayed in Europe over a 14 day period! You can do sooooo much better than this hotel. It's definitely quite a drive to get to Florence and forget about getting directions from the staff or any bus info. We finally figured everything out on our own, but I wouldn't recommend driving around Florence as we found ourselves doing. If you want to see Florence, stay inside Florence and spend a buck or two more, really! Parking in the secure garage, isn't included as the other reviewer had said, it was 20 extra euros for our group. And yes, we supposedly had airconditioning, but it was so hot in our room. The breakfast was included, but the stafF was rude! I am not a hotel snob at all, but this place was no good. Stay in a bed and breakfast somewhere and you'll be much happier for nearly the same price. One good thing, it was clean.

The Starhotel Vespucci of Florence is actually quite aways out of the city and a drive north on the A1 and then a short drive off the autostrada into an industrial area. It appears several 3 and 4 star hotels are in the area, and the area is still being developed, but is an unattractive industrial area. Our room was furnished well but had several quirks. The hotel must have an elaborate energy saving package because air conditioning is limited to 3pm to midnight and also has a timer that limits the time the air conditioning runs to about 30 minutes unless reset by the user. That can make for a very warm night of sleeping! The window has a metal blind that lowers to seal in the room but it can be raised manually to allow air in when the air conditioning is not cooling the room. The hotel's breakfast is full American style but leaves much to be desired in quality. Parking is free in a secure garage. The hotel staff is outstanding and very attentive. The cost was 89 euros/nt for a cancellable reservation.
