We had a chance to stay here for few days, I would like to express my opinion that this is great hotel. Check in was very efficient, high speed internet all over hotel, clean rooms & bathroom. Very polite and friendly staff. Good choice in the breakfast. No so far from main area of Florence. Only positive emotions at this...

I wrote a great review about this hotel a year ago. As I wrote it, I visited it Florence again this year and stayed here once more. It was a bad mistake, I won't commit again. The hotel's services has significantly declined since my last visit: you have to pay for the wifi not just in your room, but in...

Original we booked at the Donatello hotel when we arrived there we got the message that the had some 'problems' and we could stay at the Royal hotel. No problem but they didn't apologise once and they talked like they were doing us the biggest favour ever because the hotel has a pool what costs you 8 Euro per day...

Stayed here in July 2016 with friends for a 4 day break. The staff were very helpful, organizing tours and wine tasting excursions and very knowledgeable on the area for tips on bars, taxis and restaurants. The pool is a godsend in the summer , as it hits 35 degrees in the town, and there is nothing better than getting...

Having read previous reviews, I was concerned to check out the realities. This hotel is beautiful, set in a quiet area, with a delightful garden, full of exotic fruit trees, and (unusually for Florence city) an excellent swimming pool (for the use of which there is an additional charge). The breakfast and room cleaning staff are extremely friendly and helpful,...

We stayed here for 4 days in July 2016 as part of my 50th birthday celebrations. We spent 2 nights on our own and 2 with friends who joined us in the hotel. The hotel itself is delightful, an old gentleman's villa set back from the road with a large forecourt and imposing facade. Inside the rooms are gracious with...

Great that the hotel has a pool (was an important factor!) as long as you are aware you have to pay 8 euros each to use it!!! Also, the towels they provide in your rooms you are expected to take to the pool and also shower in them (?!) so would advise packing a beach towel to use by the...

We chose the hotel for the location - walk distance to Santa Maria del Fiore - and the swimmingpool. However, we were very surprised by the additional fees for almost everthing: parking, access to the pool, wifi etc. - read carefully before booking! In addition, the staff at the reception was very rude and condescending, even a bit hostile, making...

Stayed for four nights for the Italian MotoGp at Mugello. Hotel was comfortable and clean and the location was pretty good. Staff were excellent, helpful and knowledgable. Breakfast was good. No problems with the room except that air con wasnt working. Good bathroom and shower and adequate hot water. This may be one of the only hotels in Florence with...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A splendid Florentine villa built by the end of 1700. Residence of the owners until 1950, it was then turned into a hotel, and in 1990 completely restored by the present management: the Messina family. The Hotel Royal is located in a quiet zone of the town only 500 meters from the Central Station, the Congress Center and from the Cathedral. The hotel has a beautiful ancient garden with a swimming pool in the back and and a large parking place in front for its guests. Both services are for extra charge. All rooms are equipped with color TV with remote control, safe, minibar, direct-dial telephone, air-conditioning, hair-dryer. The stylish furniture grants to all rooms a sober and warm elegance. ... more   less
