The main advantage of this hotel is it's close proximity to the main train station, which is about a five minute walk away. The property is well maintained and rooms were comfortable and reasonably priced. When we were there it was quite hot but the air conditioning wasn't working -- something about a filter requiring changing which I couldn't quite...

My mom and I were greeted warmly by the hotel staff, they carried our bags, showed us around our room and it was great. But then we realized there was a lot of street noise and that would be a problem. We called the front desk and were told someone would be up soon. A few minutes later, there was...

I stayed at the Galileo Hotel for 3 nights. After many travel plans going wrong I needed an additional 4 nights. Though they were completely booked the amazing man at the front desk, Vincenzo, found a way to extend my stay for one night and then personally called several hotels with the same price range to find me a place...

Staying at this hotel was the best decision we made for our stay in Florence. It is central, short walk to the station and in the middle of everything. The room was basic with all you would need, towels changed every day, adequete and plentyful breakfast but the best of it all was the staff. Extremely helpfull in every way...

The hotel is really close to the station and a really good spot to get to the main attractions in Florence, we stayed in a double room, which was clean and comfortable. The staff desk was kind and gave us a lot of information about restaurants and attractions nearby. I really liked the furniture of the room, which was simple...

The room was booked by a travel agency. Had to be moved three times because the rooms were dirty--mold & mildew in bath, dust & cobwebs on walls and ceiling, linens old and holey, mattress with buttons had no pad mattress pad, etc. The desk staff was young, inexperienced and unprofessional. Finally moved to a handicapped room which was cleaner...

We picked this hotel because it is near the conference centre, and also near the old centres of Florence, so we could walk everywhere. However, the air conditioning was wonky (and had a sort of "you break it, you pay" sign on the switch), the wifi (not free) was only in the upstairs common area (used by the chambermaids so...

Close to train station but Via Nazionale is not a pleasant intro to Florence. Room and bath were big but that's it. Atmosphere of room was so overwhelmingly depressive that we hated to return. Breakfast was bad. Day staff very brusque, almost rude. Night gentleman very pleasant. Out of 7 hotels in Italy (2 and 3 stars), this was by...

I didnt stay there during high tourist season, and hence, my room rate was really reasonable. Its a hotel that will serve your basic needs....my room was big, though the windows opened up to a rather nondescript view of the ventilation system. The toilet was extremely spacious. Loved it Breakfast was really basic. Just cereals and some breads and some...
