Great room and breakfast!

This hotel was very nice. The room had murano glass chandelier, Louis XV furniture, 4 twin beds and a big bathroom. Breakfast included croissants, rolls, ham and swiss cheese.

Convenient location

A fire hazard. In order to go to the 3rd floor you have to take the elevator in the first building to the second floor and walk through a labirynth of corridors to find the second elevator to go to the 3rd floor. You need a week to find your way around. They want 25 euros to park your car. Difficult to find.

Avoid Like the Plaque

Staff and Manager not trustworthy and unable to rectify a incompatible room for a two nite stay which was pre-paid for $170.00. This staff is not trustworthy >they should be taken off this sites referral list , which to date, has not been done. This is a one star hotel that I would advise to "AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE" STAY AWAY from this place since they do not honor the room rate with an acceptable room or accommodation as promised for the International Traveler

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).

Perfect

Location was great, the rooms were great, and the staff was very helpful. All the reviews that said otherwise are incorrect. Breakfast was simple and sufficient. We booked the room at a good price, but everything else was at an extra charge There is a 25 euro city charge which I didn't know about, which was the only down side. A short walk from the duomo and the academia where David was held. It is about a ten minute walk from the Firenze SMN station, which is convinent.

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.
