Unexpected gem

One usually doesn't expect much from a 3-star hotel, but this one beat all my expectations. The staff was friendly and courteous. The room was large, nicely appointed, with a roomy bathroom, refrigerator and even an in-room safe. Breakfast was included and good. And the location was very convenient, about 4 blocks from the train station and within easy walking distance of everything, yet in a quiet spot.

Lots of restaurants along the Via Nazionale going towards the train station. Found two that we really liked, one of them had free WiFi. And the food was fantastic.

Great Hotel for family Summer touring

The Donatello is great for summer visits to Florence. Good air conditioning, heavy traditional window shutters, cool tile floors instead of sticky carpet, marble bathrooms, and breakfast tables outdoors in a pretty shaded courtyard. They accommodated our request for two rooms for a large family group with only one glitch in the reservation for one room on the first night. Walking distance to the Academia, Ufizzi, and Duomo, and not a bad walk from the train station.

Wonderful Location & Great Front Desk

The room was large and very quiet. The location is excellent. We were able to walk to all of the amazing sites within the City. Good food and entertainment were also close at hand. Florence has lots of water, and as a result, also has plenty of mosquitoes. Expect them in your room if the windows are opened. Our room experienced its fair share of mosquitoes before we arrived as evidenced by all of the bodies smashed on the walls and ceilings. If you are looking for a late-night protein infusion, then this might be appealing. For ambience, the mosquitoe guts were a distraction. Breakfast offerings are good, but get in early. Some of the guests empty the bread, meat and cheese preparing lunches for their daily adventures and wipe out breakfast for the rest. VERY ODD! Also, the coffee and juice machines dispense one cup at a time, so be patient. The woman who runs the breakfast room can be cranky, but considering some of the guests, it might be understandable. Be patient and smile, they really have a lovely place in a terrific location. Just a couple of little annoyances.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

If you are unaware of the parking restrictions in the City Center of Florence, then get the facts. We found out that the area in front of the hotel is reserved for pedestrian traffic. When we arrived, there were no chains up and no signs indicated the situation. Local parking around the pretty park is reserved for residents of the area (some pay for the privilege)and are not open to tourists. You might receive a warning if you are around, a ticket or may even have your vehicle towed. Metered parking is just a couple of blocks away and the hotel does utilize a local garage, but at a price. Ask the front desk staff before you park.

Clean, friendly budget hotel

I stayed three days, and was very pleased. It's a clean hotel with friendly staff (very good English spoken here) in a very convenient location (a 5-10 minute walk to the main train/bus station, about 10 minutes to the Duomo). You'll be unhappy if you're expecting a luxury hotel or a place to hang out all day. My room was very small - about 10 by 12 - and internet cost extra. That's not what you get here. But if the price is right (and I paid only about $80/night in August), it's a great place to hang your hat after touring the town.

Sightseeing tip: Long walk from hotel

The Galileo museum, down by the Arno, east of the Ponte Vecchio. Extremely well organized and curated, with startlingly beautiful renaissance artifacts - maps, globes, instruments, etc. - on display. I'm not a scientist, but I was fascinated. I cut my visit short to tour the Uffizi and wished I'd spent more time at Galileo instead.

Adorable hotel in Florence!

We loved this hotel. It was a short walk to all of the main sights and attractions. The room was really big for a European hotel room. Our room had a skylight which was awesome! Breakfast was good and the staff were all very helpful. My only criticism is that it cost money to connect to the internet. Luckily there was a great bar nearby with free wifi. There were lots of great bars and restaurants really close to the hotel. Overall, I highly recommend this hotel! It was a great value--very high quality considering how cheap it is!

Nice and Comfortable

Easy check in with the confirmation number. Friendly staff. The room wasn't ready but the service lady worked quickly and looked for us when our rooms were ready. The room was spacious and comfortable. The breakfast choices were good and adequate to satisfy anyone. The only weird things: you have to call from your room to have the air conditioning turned on remotely and there isn't any way to regulate it; wi-fi is available but not free, I only could access it in the corridor but not from in my room (319).
