Dining

Restaurant Benedica
The Restaurant Benedica offers a fine Tuscany Cuisine, but also special topic menus in a simple and elegant atmosphere, definitely Florentine. The Groin and Barrel vaults, the typical Florentine stone, the original arches of the ancient Florence, set the internal areas that have been brought back to their original beauty.

Not as good as it used to be.

We had stayed at this hotel before, and made a special effort to book there again, but this time we were not as happy. Our first room was small and lacked even enough chairs. We moved to a larger room, but there the bed was small. You had to ask for everything, including an electric kettle, slippers and such. We were quite disappointed.

Lovely hotel in perfect location

The staff was courteous and always most helpful, the hotel was clean, nicely decorated, with a great restaurant. Each day a perfect breakfast was available as part of the amenities, the room was clean, quiet and comfortable. You could buy a card to hook to the wifi. Unlike info we saw they do not have a "media center" or a shuttle from the airport. They will print out a document for you if you e-mail it to them.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

Main part of Florence where most of the attractions are located is a short cab ride and then walking is easy and fun. At the end of the day, a cab ride back to the hotel is not expensive and worth the trip.

The hotel was great. There are so many beautiful sitting areas to relax in on the first floor. The restaurant was absolutely delicious. We enjoyed a fabulous dinner there. There were many options and they offerred to make menu selection adjustments on the price fix menu. The room itself was large; the bed was comfortable enough and it was the largest bathroom we had in Europe. Only complaint was the stall in the bathroom itself was small and could have benefited with a shelf and grab bar. My husband and I would definitely stay there again and highly recommend it. Also note it is only a 5 min walk or less from the train station.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

Leather market -- bring cash and bargain. Going to the Galleries and don't have a ticket? Go directly to the box office.

Great staff

The staff was English speaking, cordial, and very helpful. The included breakfast had variety and was very good. The room was average in size, but clean and comfortable. The hotel has a good location within a short walk of the train station, restaurants, shopping, and museums.

Hidden Gem

We initially weren't sure about the location but loved it in the end. It was a quiet place, not far from the train station and river. It is also very close to car rental places so it was convenient for us since we rented a car on our way out of Florence through Tuscany. We loved the Hotel courtyard at night, where you can sit and have some wine before going to sleep. And most importantly, the bathrooms and room were clean and a good size. They also had a good buffet breakfast with good cappuccinos. We also ate at this little place, called Trattoria "da Giorgio" which was very close to hotel for our first lunch and it was a great deal for great food. We got good deals at the little markets across the street for wine and water. Great all around for the price.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Short walk depends on where you want to go but we walked all around Florence.

Pretty Good Hotel; Central Location

Hotel was pretty good; could use a coffee maker and an iron. Fitness center privileges are available around the corner at a small local gym. The restaurant in the hotel was a great place to have dinner; nice garden ambiance and the head chef was very attentive.
