Florence walking friendly and good price

This is the third time I have traveled to Florence, and the third time for staying at Hotel Corona. It is very conveniently located in Florence, walking distance from the train station, and near all the museums. It's not flashy, but very comfortable and clean. The rooms have air conditioning, elevators, and sound proof windows, which are good for the noisy streets of Florence. The staff has always been friendly, and helpful, and actually remembers me from previous visits. The area around Hotel Corona is lively, with street markets, great restaurants, and beautiful historically signifant Churches.

Amazing staff

We went on several tours of Florence and enarby cities, all which the staff reccommended and were very helpful in planning our trips. The staff could not have been more hospitable. Rooms are little small and weird bathrooms, but overall a pleasureable stay. Quick walk to center of the city. And literally a 10 minute walk from the train station with suitcases.

great location but very old hotel

When I first arrived, I had to ask for a room change as the first room they put me in had a bathroom that had such an awful smell I could not stay in it! The cleaning staff and receptionists are, for the most part, friendly and helpful, but it takes some nudging with the reception staff. The location of the hotel is the greatest thing about it. You can walk to the Duomo, Gallery Uffizi and train station. If I were able to pay more for a slightly better maintained facility, I would have. Basically, nothing in this hotel has been updated. They keep it clean and orderly, but it's very very old furnishings make it uncomfortable.

Holiday to Florence

Staff were welcoming on arrival at reception. I was disappointed by the room though as extra little touches would have made it so much better. There was only 1 small wardrobe for 3 people so my husband and son lived out of the suitcase. The beds squeaked very loudly every time you turned in the night so sleep was limited. There was only 1 pillow per person. I had to wrap my over blanket up as a 2nd pillow and left it there hoping the cleaner would take the hint but it was not to be. Everything seemed an effort for the reception staff. They need to smile more and greet there customers each day as they come and go. The barman however was amazing! Very friendly, bubbly, gave advise and tips on where to go. Nothing was too much for him. For us, he is the sole reason why the hotel is still in business. Waiters were very friendly too. Breakfast lovely. Did I mention the paper thin walls? Another reason for not sleeping. We could here parents in the next room shouting at their kids, people running up and down the steps, going in and out of their rooms at all hours. The list goes on. The location was fab though, right into the market, very close to food hall and a further walk around the corner to the duomo. Train and bus station just around the corner too.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Your bill can soon escalate when eating out due to a few things. 1: service charge, roughly €1.50/person. 2: water, they bring your drinks and then ask if you want water. It is the bottled stuff, ask for tap water, €3-4. 3:bread: they don't always ask, they just sneak it on. €2. Depending how many there are of you your bill can soon be another €10 each time which everyday soon mounts up. Shop around for ice cream, price varies a lot. Tubs are generally cheaper than cones. Don't forget the city charge, €3/person/night. Another €66 at the end of the holiday and it has to be paid in cash. We took €1200 for the week for 3 of us. People said we would have more than enough but we didn't, we had to be careful each day about what we spent. Majority goes on food and drink.

Decent Tourist Hotel

The hotel is about a 5-10 minute walk from the main railroad station. It is a great location right next to Florence's leather market and a short walk from all main tourist attractions. The hotel was clean and friendly and offered a nice breakfast buffet. Lots of student groups that were very noisy until late at night. Tiny elevators and long wait times if you wanted to use them when a group was getting ready for check-out. It was good value - I would go back there any time.

Unimpressive rooms - good location!

The hotel has a very pleasant (almost swank) lobby but pls note that the rooms are EXTREMELY utilitarian (no windows/outside light/ no décor on walls, no tissues in bath). I could not recommend this hotel if you are planning on spending a lot of time in your room. That being said, we slept well, breakfast was plentiful and served elegantly. Front desk was helpful and you are extremely close to the market for leather goods and the produce market. Hotel is one or two blocks from train station.....very close to all major sites.

Disappointing

This hotel was in a good location, but we were disappointed. First of all, our room smelled musty/sweaty the whole time we stayed. I tried to spray some Febreeze and it helped a little bit, but not enough. The hotel lobby area is very nice and matched the pictures, but the rooms did not live up to the pictures. They looked similar, but the rooms in the pictures are very well staged compared to what you get. The breakfast was just okay.

La Burrasca is just around the block from this hotel. Get there right at 7 or get a reservation. Order the Gnocchi with Tomatoes and Pecorino and the side of beans and red sauce (share the sides, they are huge). Everything we got was delicious!!

Just Okay

Two twin blankets covered our king bed, and if you ran the shower fast, you stood in six inches of water in the tub. This place is just okay.
