“small, friendly, comfortable & great value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2011

They said we could park outside the hotel, but you have to find it first!
No places, but Daniele took my keys & 30 mins later the car was parked outside.
Smallish but well appointed room with a/c. Wifi Friendly staff. Good breakfast.
Close enough to all the attractions without being city centre.
I was delighted overall & told them so. They were pleased.
Very good value for Firenze!

Room Tip: we asked when booking. I think the room was 18 end of corridor 1st floor.

Small but serviceable and clean bathroom. Bed not perfectly flat (old?), but clean and serviced daily. Free wifi for guests, telephone in room available for both incoming and outgoing calls overseas. Dial 0 not 012 as it said on my handset sticker. Air conditioning a blessing in spring/summer, not just for heat but general ventilation. No flyscreens (rare in Florence), means its impractical to open windows unless you don't mind being bitten by mosquitoes. Pity, because those windows are a beautiful feature of Florence. Curtain impedes window opening properly anyway. Small lift a bonus if you have heavy bags or are less mobile. Unexpectedly, two vegetarian restaurants right outside ('Il Sedano Allegro' and Ruth's Kosher one attached to the Synagogue). Hotel breakfast selection and room are good. Courteous staff. 20 minute walk to train station and all major museums in city. Overall, a nice little temporary home in a fascinating city.

Based on the photos and for the price I had higher expectations as well. Our first night was claustrophobic, at the end of the bed you could reach out and touch the wall; it felt like sleeping in a walk in closet. The next morning, since I could not sleep in this room well because it was so small and on a road with traffic noise I asked to be switched to another room. At first he claimed all the rooms were the same size but I told him I saw the website and knew that was not the case fortunately we were upgraded to a room double the size it faced another building that was quiet and large. Appeared to not be used much a bit dusty. The decor of the hotel was a lot more run down than I expected, looks like it may have been an old days inn that was converted.

Room Tip: ask for larger room

High expectation from seeing the reviews. A bit of let down after seeing the room.

Air conditioning is remotely set from reception. You'll need to ask them to adjust the temperature if you want a nice cool room.

The pillows are too flat. You'll need to ask reception for extra pillow.

Reception is really friendly so service is good.

Don't expect much from breakfast, e.g. boiled egg. Only espresso is fresh coffee.

Location is great for me - in a quiet area and 15-20 min walkable distance to major attractions. Yes the road is under repair and it doesn't look like in a nice area but feel safe.

The worst is the free wifi - drops every 1 min. Probaly it was set such that if you idle for 1 min, you need to re-enter your ID and password to get re-connected.

If I had not seen the reviews, I'd probably not be disappointed.

Hotel Arizona was an adequate hotel but nothing remarkable. The staff was very helpful with our questions and phoning in museum and restaurant reservations. The room size was good, with the typical small european bathroom. Breakfast was typical, coffee was from a machine. We really didn't like the area around our hotel. Dirty sidewalks with dog poop on them. Lots of construction in the vicinity.
