            Warm welcome when we arrived and subsequently very helpful at reception, booked guaranteed visit times to the Uffizi Gallery and Accademia (David) for us at no extra cost. Elevator to rooms (not always available in Italy!) and a porter showed us to two rooms of which we chose one, a neat touch. Great location (near the station and easy to find with a map) for visiting central Florence - Uffizi about 15 minutes and Santa Croce about 30 mins stroll. Bit noisy at night but not bad in mid May, might be a problem in summer if you want windows open. Hotel very clean and wi-fi available at no extra cost. Breakfast excellent, best we had on our 2 week trip, plenty of choice and plenty of it! Overall good value for money.

            The room overlooked a side-street and was a bit noisy till 11pm or so when we visited in mid May (didn't think about noise when we took the room!), might be a problem if you want windows open in summer (bug screens over windows, another nice touch we thought).

            Central hotel, very close to the sightseeing, good breakfast, very clean hotel, staff very friendly and willing to help and explain everything

            Rooms definitely need renovation, the furniture were old-fashioned except from the bathroom that was excellent an very clean. In addition the hotel is situated in a very dark street which was a little scary at night.

            Great breakfast. Morning and afternoon desk managers incredibly helpful with activity and food advice. We felt like family. Large, well appointed bath. Quiet location in a noisy town.

          • Family with children
            7.4

            We had a large family room with a second sitting room/single bed. The bathroom was large and with a bath and the facilities excellent but for the slightly tired decor but it didn't matter. Free Wifi in the room was terrific and breakfast was lovely. Was a noisy at night from the lane outside the hotel but the manager dealt with it quickly when we rang down. Some might be put off by the close proximity to the train station but for us it was great as we caught the train to Venice after our stay. Only a 5 minute slow walk to Il Duomo, and 10 to Palazzo Vecchio.

            Noisy at night

            Friendliness and helpfulness of the hotel staff, nice breakfast and quiet room. Also had international TV channels. The bathroom was particularly well designed and modern.

            The room was very clean ane spaciouse. There was a beauyiful picture in the room. The bathroom was also spaciouse and comfertable. The staff is so helpful, we had a very good time at the restaurant they recommended us for my daoughter's birthday. The hotel is placed in the few minites walk from the Station Santa Maria Novella. I highly recommend The Hotel City.

            No problem.

            Our group was 4 women. Francesco and other staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The breakfast buffet was great. The location is superb, a brief wall to everything we wanted to see and shopping. The hotel is a charming jewel. We hated to leave. Would highly recommend it!

            9.2

            The hotel is really situated in the very center of Florence in a 1 minute walk to the central railway station and bus station. My room was equipped with a tiny little balcony. The hotel staff was very friendly.

            The staff were very friendly and helpful, even allowing us to check in early. The continental breakfast buffet was extensive and good quality. Very handy for the railway station.

            9.6

            The Hotel City is in a great position for accessing not only Florence centre but also the railway station so day trips to Siena etc..are easy. The staff are welcoming and very helpful. The level of cleanliness in the hotel was excellent and the rooms were very comfortable. The breakfast was much better than we had expected with a good choice and delicious fresh cakes every day. We were more than happy with our stay at the Hotel City and would recommend it to others.

          • Family with children
            5.4

            The staff was nice. The rooms were clean.

            The decor in the room and lobby was outdated. The hotel was on a street which people exiting the train station used as a pass through to the main streets of Florence. As a result, it lacked any kind of cozy ambience.

          • Group of friends
            10.0

            The location is good, the breakfast is nice, the internet connection from the room is good and the person in the hotel are very kind and helpful.I like this hotel.

            I didn't borrow a plug but the person in the front office told me to return.
