Our family of three adults and one teenager really liked this hotel. The quad room was large and we didn't feel crowded. Great location. Everything was in walking distance. Wonderful staff at the front desk. Highly recommend this hotel. When we go back to Florence we plan to stay here again.

Hotel City is a cozy hotel near the Santa Maria Novella church, about a 5 minute walk from the Stazione di Santa Maria Novella. My sister, mom & I stayed in a triple room for 2 nights during November. The room was very clean and quiet. It was about a 10 minute walk from all the main sights in Florence. The hotel staff was incredibly kind and made recommendations for restaurants and trains. The continental breakfast was also wonderful and had a great variety. All in all we had a wonderful stay!!

The hotel is well located in Florence -- about 5 minutes from the central train station, and within walking distance to the main churches and museums. The extensive market is one block away and there are numerous good restaurants within a couple of blocks. The hotel has been updated, with nicely done modern bathrooms, flat screen televisions, reliable free wi-fi internet throughout. The day clerk on the front desk was very helpful with suggestions to our questions. And the breakfast, while continental, had lots of choice.

A small problem was the modern shower leaked a bit of water onto the floor every time we used it. It happens. So we mopped it up and reported it - hopefully this was limited to our suite and is now fixed.

I stayed 4 nights in October. The weather was perfect mostly sunny, warm days & cool nights. No need for air condition & no mosquito problem. Excellent central location & the hotel is within easy 10 minute walk from the Stazione di Santa Maria Novella. First night had a single room/large bed with the bathroom (non-share) right across the hall. The remaining 3 nights had a double room/large bed with in room bath. The single room was naturally more affordable & having the dedicated bath across the hall is not inconvenient at all. The bathrooms are not ventilated so that’s another advantage of having the bath across the hall. The bed mattress/springs are more like the set-up in a convertible sofa bed; however, it did not bother me. My budget hotel in Rome had the same type of bed. Very good breakfast bar. Rooms have double windows, which does an excellent job keeping the street noise out. Be sure to check-out the nearby Mercato with shops & eateries (closes 2pm?). Plenty of restaurants nearby. I walked to all of the attractions. Excellent train system in Italy & I was able to do 2 day trips from Florence (Siena & Venice). Be aware noise can be a problem if you have a loud neighbor. The building is of solid masonry construction & loud noises from the adjoining rooms travel easily through the walls. On my last night there was a very loud group in the next room late into the night. However, one phone call to the front desk put a stop to the party.

The Hotel City is within walking distance of all the main attractions and the railway station. The staff are all very friendly and helpful. The rooms are tastefully furnished, comfortable and spotlessly clean; the wifi is free, fast and reliable. The continental breakfast deserves particular mention, in particular the pastries which were delicious, the best we have ever tasted. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this excellent hotel.
