Overall, the hotel is walking distance to some of the tourist area. there was a convoluted way to find our hotel room. The room was adequate, you get what you pay for. The bed was not comfortable- furniture is old and tired.

Dear client, Thank you for your review. The hotel is situate in a antiqui building so not al the rooms are on the same floor. The bed furniture is hand painted in an antiqui slyle. we hope to see you next time

Great value for a family of four, large comfortable room, large bathroom, we all slept great. Pleasant & short stroll from the hotel to the major sites. Friendly hard-working owners, happy to advise on our trip. Parking service is great - reception actually park your car for you in their private courtyard next door. We enjoyed our stay here and...

We were alloted the rooms facing the garden which also happens to be the smoking area. Rooms are ok..bathrooms are spacious. For a hotel with 63 rooms the breakfast room is very inadequate ,considering they are entertaining groups. Both days we squeezed ourselves in after waiting long for a hurried breakfast. They rush you to a cellar room for breakfast...

Dear customer. Thank you for your review. Sorry you had to wait for breakfast. But why did you not passed on to the reception that you had a tour. Because we had opened the breakfast room earlier than 7 o' clock only for you. We hope to welcome you again

Hotel Donatello is perfectly located - a ten minute walk from Santa Maria Novella train station and, like everything in Florence, ~20minutes from everywhere else. The hotel itself is beautiful, with an adorable courtyard, and the rooms are incredibly spacious and comfortable. We were fortunate enough to have a balcony as well. The breakfast is not great, and we were...

Really beautiful hotel with a wonderful quality/price ratio. The room was really charming and clean, the breakfast was ok. I'm really satisfied by the choice of this place. Strongly recommended! Also the position is quite good, not exactly in the city center but not too far from it.

This hotel is well placed, as it is located between the main stations and the city center, and it is easy to walk arround, as you need only few minutes. There is nothing fancy about it, the rooms are big and clean, but do not wait much more than that.

I stayed at the Hotel Donatello for 5 nights during Christmas. I was greeted warmly by name when I checked in at 12:30 a.m. From there on out the staff was amazingly cheerful and helpful in every way. They made sure I saw sites that were off the beaten track and helped with every arrangement possible. My room was spacious...

Our room was very nice, spacious and inviting. The hotel staff was very helpful with whatever we needed. The breakfast was good and the little patio was a nice place to sit and enjoy the meal on the nice warm sunny September days. Everything was within a short walking distance from this hotel which was located on a street across...

Adequate room, clean, no fancy frills, no extras, but everything I needed was there. Wifi worked fine (although I had to pay for it). The hotel is situated 15 minutes walk from the railwaystation, 5-10 minutes from Piazza San Marco and Piazza Mercato. Hotel staff indeed have a somewhat unpolished way of approaching you, but every question I asked and...
