Business trip for 2 days

The staff at this hotel are professional, attentive and kind. Unfortunately this does not make up for the fact that the rooms are tired, dull and not any more than two star standard. The bathroom is particularly awful with gallons of old silicone marked by black mould. Simple redecoration would help a lot but the place doesn't look like it's seen a paintbrush in 15 years. Great location near all the sights and train station.

The worse front desk staff

I don't recommend staying at this hotel based on the front desk personnel. They are very rude, unhelpful and make for a very unpleaseant stay. If you have an outside caller trying to call your room, they ask you to call back several times, say they don't know the room number, ask you to call the person via their cell phone, etc. As a bonus they are very nasty to the caller because they don't want to look up the room number and transfer the call. Don't ask for any city informaion becasue they are very short and impatient with your questions. They are inconsistant with making up your room and providing fresh towels and toilet paper. When they miss doing your room they blame it on you instead of apologizing and sending someone up to rectify the situation. There are so many hotels to choose from in Florence, find another one that likes and appreciates their visitors!

2-Star, good location, okay services and comfort

Spent the weekend at this hotel (though they call themselves a Motel). with my wife. the location was good near many of the popular sites and shopping. Breakfast was included but pretty weak. Room was small and the bathroom was barely functional with the shower so small that when you wanted to turn around you had to step out of the shower otherwise you would hit the handle and the water would turn off. probably would not stay there again unless it was the only option.

Good place, bad room

The hptelmis situated ina nice central location with good access to all the touristy locations. it has a relatively good breakfast buffet and average internet speed via wifi. The room I stayed in however was small, the ac unit was broken, the shampoo/conditioner/soap were of horrible quality so I had to buy my own and the shower itself was so small it barely fit me. Mind you I'm not overweight or anything like that (6ft tall 190pds).

Close to market

The hotel is located close to the market, restaurants, grocery store and all of the sites. The breakfast was very good. The room was comfortable and had a large,updated bathroom. I found the front desk staff to be very rude. This was the worse part about staying here. You got the impression you were imposing on them when you had a question or an issue. There are so many hotels in Florence and hopefully the others are more welcoming to their guests. No free Wifi, they charge 8 euro a day. The TV has only one channel in English which is CNN. If you have a car, they charge 33 euro a day to park it. No tea, coffee etc. provided in the room. The room has a small refrigerator.

Just OK but value is less than a 4 star hotel

I expect more of a 4 star hotel room than a bath robe. Yes, I think that this is the only thing that differs this hotel from the other hotels I stayed in. I chose this 4 star hotel after I took a 3 star hotel in Rome which was really awful (I felt like I was in a motel) but it did not WOW me at all. Kudos for a good service though. I stayed here for 4 nights and most of the people were really nice except for 2 of them. They were many and I only hated 2 from the reception. ^_^

good location, standard and convenient

The Atlantic Palace is in a good loction as Florence is compact and being near ( yet not too near ) the train station was a convenience. It's a 10-15 minute walk to most sites and you have time to walk off that late gelatto before bed. We arrived in August, when it is HOT under the Tuscan Sun and the heat stays with the city at night so be sure to ask for an EXTRA room key to leave in the electric slot in your room to keep the Air Conditioning on at ALL times. Italian Air Conditioning is anemic but this will make the room more comfortable. There is NO WAY that the AC will cool the room after a long day if it is turned on when you arrive back to the room. The bathrooms are new but they cram too much into a small space yet, it is nice to see pride in room care. I would give this hotel 4 stars in comparison to other Florentine hotels but 3 stars on an American scale only as it relates to the size and space issues. Our room window by the bed had no view but on the window by the door, we had a scenic shot of Florentine roofs and the Dome of a Cathedral.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Buy train tickets using the machines in the station. Do not be overy concerned about being able to buy tickets to the Academmia to see "David" as you can have easy access in the afternoons. This also applies to the Ufitzi but best to make it there very early or late in the day to avoid tourists on tours.
