Read a lot of reviews and chose this very nice hotel for the staff and location. Both were accurate and made the trip a good one. Great location, great people. We stayed six nights in May in room 303 one of the larger Superior rooms. It had plenty of room, a very large shower, a nice view of the church and a laptop for our use. We did make use of the laptop and the good quality wi-fi during our stay. The hotel also has a Happy Hour in the evening offering wine, cheese and other snacks. Very enjoyable way to start the evening. Breakfast was also good and the room was never really crowded or uncomfortable. They do a great job utilizing the space they have. We liked that it was a short walk from the train station. We liked that we were SO close to the market and there were many restaurant and market choices close by.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Hotel Globus was completely renovated in June 2016. The new reception area, located on the street level of Via Sant'Antonino, is now connected to all rooms thanks to our new elevator. The new breakfast area overlooks a small courtyard with a nice vertical garden. Our staff is a mixture of all ages, languages, cultures and countries, always smiling and willing to offer you tips on places to visit, restaurants to try. They're always there for you. For what regards our location, it is definitely one of the key features of Globus. The proximity to all the Santa Maria Novella train station and all main attractions, including the Duomo, both major museums (Uffizi and Accademia Galleries) or Ponte Vecchio, among others, makes it very easy to plan even the busiest day without the need to lose time getting from the hotel to your desired location. What makes our neighbourhood special though is definitely the Mercato Centrale, located just around the corner from here. In the morning, that is where you want to go if you're planning to buy some food to take back home, or simply want to try the famous Tuscan specialties, "trippa" and "lampredotto". Where this place shines though is the 1st floor, open from 10am until midnight. It's a big, modern open space with many restaurants, serving a variety of really delicious food.
