This hotel is a bargain... five minutes to the rail station, close to the Duomo, close to the central market (great variety of food and closes late), and close to a laundromat. But the best thing of all, large clean rooms, WiFi, great water pressure...More

My husband and I stayed here for one night. I wanted something in close proximity to the train station, car rental and walking distance to all the major sights and this was perfect. Hotel staff was very helpful and friendly. Rooms were clean and comfortable.

The location of this hotel was perfect and I think that was the driving factor for us. It's close to the train station to make transportation easy but far enough away to not be bothered by the noise. It's on an adorable little street!The bed...More

About
Description
The Hotel Porta Faenza is situated in Via Faenza - one of the earliest medieval streets in Florence - near Porta Faenza, a gate in the fifteenth-century city walls. It was created in 1997 through the restoration More and conversion of Palazzo Pegna, the old residence of a family of merchants, whose original structure has been kept intact. Porta Faenza was part of the city walls and was situated at the end of what is up till now called Via Faenza. It has been so called not for being placed towards the town in Emilia, but from the name of the Nuns from Faenza, who had their convent in the neighbourhood once. Between 1534 and 1537 Porta Faenza was joined to the Fortezza da Basso without being demolished: by watching attentively you can still distinguish its squared profile in the central bastion towards the city or its arch from the inside of the fortress. The Hotel will make you savour the warm atmosphere of the old-time Florentine houses: the tile floor, the exposed beams, the old tools scattered everywhere, together with all the comforts will make it your ideal home in the old Florence. The Hotel Porta Faenza is centrally located, very close to the main railway station (Santa Maria Novella), to Palazzo dei Congressi (the Conference Centre) and to the Fortezza da Basso. The most interesting monuments and museums in Florence are within easy walking distance. For being situated in a pedestrian precinct, the Hotel is a quiet and pleasant place, the ideal point of departure for you to discover Florence and its artistic and cultural life. Less
