Good Hotel

My daughter and I traveled to Florence to visit my college student studying abroad. We spent a week at this hotel. The service and staff were extremely helpful and friendly. They spoke English very well. A continental breakfast was served each morning which included: croissants, yogurt, toast, fresh fruit, dried fruit, juices, coffee, teas, cappaccinos, ham, breakfast cake. The location was great--close to everything including train station, Duomo, fresh food market, San Lorenzo market. You could walk to the Ponte Vecchio bridge, the Uffizi, the Accademia, etc. THe only thing I would say that could be better were the beds were very firm and the odor of the room. Other than that, everything was great. I felt very safe at the hotel as well.

Comfortable stay in the city center

We chose hotel Globus because of it's convenience to the main train station in Florence and because it's central location allows you to walk to most of the famous sites around town. There are quite a few good restaurants, cafes and pizzerias in very close proximity as well. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful with recommendations. Our room was a little small and along with the location comes the usual busy city noise, so this is not your spot if you're after a luxury experience. However, if you're looking to headquarter yourself in the city center and explore Florence in an actively self guided and budget conscience way as we did, I believe it's an excellent value.

Trattoria Nerone. Just a block north of Hotel Globus. A favorite among locals that serves up traditional Tuscan fare in a lively atmosphere. Priced moderately, Nerone is a great place to enjoy a special dinner in Florence.

Excellent service and location!!!!

Globus hotel is perfect if you're travelling by train because the train station is a 10min walk. The reception staff is fantastic specially Lucas and Nicollo. The man who handles the breakfast makes a great hot chocolate, he's a bit moody but he does his job. The breakfast selection is good. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. We had a private bathroom and we were given free internet access. Their reception is on the 2nd floor, so if you need help with your luggage, just go up and ask for help. Someone from the reception will go down to get your luggage.

Incredibly wonderful staff

Couldn't have had a better location - less than 1/2 block from the Central Market - three blocks from the main train station - five minute walk from the Duomo! Rooms are small but very adequate. We travel to see the sites, not lounge around in a hotel room. Great for our purposes which was to get a good night's rest. VERY, VERY clean! Adequate breakfast as well. HOWEVER, the very best part was the staff. We have traveled many places in Europe - never have we found such a friendly, helpful staff! FIVE STAR STAFF!

Teatro de Sale is a great way to spend an evening! Check them out on the internet! You need reservations for the 7:30 pm - multi-course meal served with plenty of red wine - 30 euros per person. Each person ALSO must have a memebership - 5 euros - Go during the day, make your reservations, and get your membership. You will be able to save a lot of time. The food was spectacular - the entertainment excellent - Give it a try.

Nice Small Hotel...

The hotel staff is great! They are overly friendly and willing to assist. The hotel is located close to a food market (indoor) and a flea market of some sort, in Firenze (Florence). It's perfect for shopping souvenirs. It's also a short walk from Firenze Santa Maria Novella train station. Florence seems to be really condensed and a short walk to most sights. So walking to the Duomo or to the museums from the hotel was no issue.
