Great Two Night Stay in Florence!

This hotel was perfect for quick and easy access to the train station (Firenze SMN). It was a short 5 min walk with a roller bag and backpack. It was also central to the Duomo, Mercato Centrale (street vendors for leather and clothes), Basilica of Santa Croce and Uffizi. It's on a main street, but the windows had shutters so you could insulate yourself from the noise. The beds are firm and pillows were not as flat as others we've slept on during our travels. Since the built in blow dryer was broken we had a standard blow dryer in the room, much nicer. The bathroom is small, but this is often the case in European hotels. The shower had good pressure and it had a tub so the water didn't splash onto the floor. We had a table and chairs in the room which made it nice to grab a snack and eat in the room. Overall a great room and close to great attractions. Great location for walking to the Piazzale Michelangelo.

Great Hotel

We stayed in this hotel while visiting our daughter studying abroad. She met us in the lobby when we arrived and she was cordially invited to join us for breakfast each morning. Breakfast was hot eggs and meat, other cold meats and cheese, rolls, spreads, sweets, fruits, cereals, coffee, juice and cappacino. The building is several centuries old but completely modernized like a new hotel. Walls are very thick so very quiet. Showers were hot with very good pressure. The staff was very helpful. The location was great- close to the bus station and train in one direction and in the other location the mercato centrale, the duomo and the uffizzi. We would definitely stay there again!

Excellent hotel for the price, very close to train station. Our room had a balcony and a great view of the Duomo. It was perfect. Great coffee shop across the street. It was a great place to stay for the price and the view of that specific room was tremendous. If I go again I will stay in the same place.

Really good location, standard continental breakfast. Upgraded to superior room but view was of residential apartments. The restaurant next door was very good and the prices very reasonable.

Good location and choice for a few days in Florence

The Atlantic Palace Hotel is probably not a 4 star hotel (more like 3 stars), however our experience there was certainly a good and enjoyable one. Hotel staff are courteous and helpful and speak English well. They serve a great buffet breakfast with a lot of variety to choose from. The location is perfect for walking around, there are lots of restaurants nearby with good food and reasonable prices. It is close to the train station and easy to walk to with luggage. While our room was kind of dark, it was quiet and away from the street noise which can be noisy if facing the street. I would certainly stay at this hotel again.

Bellisimo !

We were able to WALK from train station to hotel. We were within view of the Central Marketplace. CENTRAL to the highlights of Florence. The Breakfast was wonderful so much more than the typical small European breakfasts offered elsewhere. Very supportive staff. I would highly recommend & stay again.

Location, Location, Location!

This lovely, tasteful hotel provides such conveniences as super-quiet air conditioning, modern bathrooms and secure room safes -- while retaining the beautiful "bones" of the old monastery building it once was, including wood-beamed ceilings, opulent tapestry-draped windows and attractive antique furnishings in guest rooms. It is managed by a friendly, helpful, English-speaking staff, and is well-maintained. The ample breakfast buffet includes eggs, rolls, yogurt, cereal, cheese, fruit, breakfast meat, OJ, coffee and tea. Complimentary newspapers, including the International Herald Tribune, are available in the lobby, which has multiple seating sections and a bar. Best of all is the Atlantic Palace's location, five minutes from Florence's central train station and walking distance to all the city's cultural features. Around the corner is a huge outdoor market, and one can easily reach the Duomo, the Accademia art museum (home of Michelangelo's David sculpture), the Uffici and the Pitti Palace. Although the area teams with stores and restaurants, the hotel is an oasis of calm and quiet. Also, the Siti regional bus station is just four blocks away, with service to the airport and, for serious shoppers, several buses a day to the designer outlet center known as The Mall, in Leccio, a 40-minute drive.

The Atlantic Palace offers a pay-for-use computer station in its lobby, but around the corner on Via Faenza are several shops that sell Internet access for a third the price.

Perfectly located!

The hotel had an ideal location for a woman traveling alone. Perfectly situated just a street away from the market and excellently located near the train and bus station. So if going for a day trip to Pisa or Siena, it's extremenly easy!

Unbeatable location for the price

The location was terrific. It was very close to the train station, just as described. It was very close to the market which made it fun. The room had old world charm while being very comfortable. The staff was helpful with directions, maps, and changing money. The breakfast was excellent. My only complaint is that I thought internet access was available free, however, in order to use their guest computer in the lobby, I would have had to purchase a computer card for 6 euros. (On principle alone, I did not.) Other than that, it was a great hotel and I loved Florence!
