“Amazing Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2012

This hotel is Very close by to almost everything. The leather market is just down at the end of the block. The free breakfast was delicious. Upon our arrival our room was not ready (we arrived very early). We we're then upgraded to a junior suite for our Expedia price of a double. The bathroom was an old chapel. The shower itself was bigger then my bathroom at home. Full body shower heads on both sides.
We stayed in July which was very hot. The hotel was close enough to everything that it was easy enough to go back to the hotel for and hour or two to rest and go back out at night. The Ponte Vecchio bridge was alive at night with music and dancing. All really close to the hotel.
I must also say that the staff was really nice and helped us with anything we needed.
Also you can have pay Internet in your room or free Internet in the lobby. It is a very nice lobby and free is great.

Room Tip: Ask for a room upgrade you just might get it.

As Florence is really one of my favorite places in Italy, I often use to take a visit to this beautiful part of Tuscany. And as a frequent visitor I tried a lot of hotels there.

This time I wanted something new and decided to book a room at NH Porta Rossa. Frankly speaking i passed by this building a million times but never realized it was an hotel until we arrived there.

I was kinda surprised by this hotel. First, it really is in the heart of the city. All the attractions are just around the corner, and that's a fact. "Walking distance" is something you need to remember when booking at NH Porta Rossa.
Second, I loved how the designers made look fresh and hip this historic building in the heart of Florence, preserving its old charm. High ceilings, frescoes, vintage furnishings.. everything is mixed with red and white modern design pieces.

Our deluxe room was lovely, with huge windows overlooking the roofs of the city. The room itself was spacious, clean, with a super comfy bed! We slept like babies and honestly couldn't hear anything from outside.. maybe because we were on the 5th floor? While we were in Florence the temperatures were so, so high, but inside the hotel it was just perfect and comfortable.. very good air con system I assume.
Bathroom was big enough, with a nice shower (good water pressure) and lots of amenities.

Breakfasts are served downstairs and the one we had there was good and with a large selection of pastries, yogurts, juices, etc..

Check-in and check-out were fast, and the guys from staff were all very nice and helpful during our stay. As we arrived at the hotel by car, they promptly arranged us a parking (priced around 20 Euros per night).

Overall I had a great stay at Porta Rossa. It's not a cheap hotel but location is everything, and here you can breathe the history of this amazing city.

My personal suggestion for the hotel management: it would be even better with free wifi (everywhere, not just in the lobby) and little touches like a complimentary goodnight bottle of water.

What can I say.. on my next trip to Florence I'll definitely consider to stay here again!

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the higher floors

The NH Porta Rossa was a nice clean hotel with some quirky rooms that felt like a old castle (on the mezzanine level). The hotel is between the Duomo and Punto Vecchio so the location is great. Friendly helpful staff, althought I would have liked access to Wi-Fi in the rooms. It was just available (free) in the lobby.

Strong bathroom products and plumbing as well as the best mattress in 2 weeks of touring Italy made our large room (we were upgraded to a "junior suite" upon checkin) very comfortable. Centrally located, as many hotels are in Florence. Expensive, as quality hotels are in Italy. My main complaint is not providing wireless without a surcharge. Every traveler has a wireless device these days and not providing proper wifi in the room rate is just cheap and lame. Good continental breakfast buffet.
