PERFECT CHOICE FOR ME

EASY TO WALK TO FROM THE TRAIN STATION, GOOD VALUE WITH CLEAN COMFORTABLE ROOMS AND BATHROOM WITH SMALL, BUT APPRECIATED TUB AND SHOWER. SMALL ROOM FOR ONE PERSON, BUT PLEASANTLY ACCOMMODATING ALL NEEDS: DRAWERS, CLOSET, SMALL IN-ROOM SAFE, GOOD READING LIGHTS, SMALL DESK, AND EVEN A VIEW OF THE MEDICI CHAPEL DOME. GOOD SOUNDPROOFING OF WINDOWS FROM OUTSIDE NOISE. DOORS COULD BE MADE TO SHUT MORE QUIETLY. EXCELLENT BREAKFAST AND PLEASANT SURPRISE TO HAVE A HAPPY HOUR PROVIDED ! GOOD PLACE FOR A SINGLE TRAVELER TO SHARE THE DAY'S EXPERIENCE AND GET SOME TIPS FROM OTHERS. STAFF TRULY FRIENDLY AND HELPFUL.

Great, convenient location

The hotel is conveniently located, within walking distance from SMN train station. Also its proximity to San Lorenzo market is a huge advantage. There are 2 self-pay laundromats within a block, which are open until midnight .The staff is very helpful. In addition to a queen bed, the kids were thrilled to have their own, two separate twin beds. We found the bath tub a bit sub-standard but not certainly acceptable. Good breakfast. Would certainly stay again at this hotel, if we had to revisit Florence.

Globus Hotel Florence-close to everything

Hotel is within walking distance of everything. Small rooms but you are in Florence to see the sights, not stay in your room. Staff was fantastic. The Free Breakfast (cook was very attentive) and Late evening wine & cheese socializing was Great!

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!

Dining tip: Long walk from hotel

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.

Great Location

Spent two nights at the Globus in early September. Air conditioning worked great. Good breakfast, very helpful staff and unbeatable good, safe location. Only five minutes from train station but on quiet street. Right in the middle of the central market, and blocks away from Duomo, Uffizi and Accademia. Great, great location and good price.

Only 2 blocks away from the "Dome"

It was an excellent location in the cheaper part of town and yet very central to everything. The hotel had free continental breakfast every morning with delicious choices of italian coffees, croissants, hams, cereal, juices, etc. The staff was exceptionally friendly and all spoke conversational English. We had a slight experience where an item was missing from our room but the situation was immediately resolved. The bathrooms are brand new but the rooms are slightly on the smaller side. The AC was working 24 hours so kept the rooms very cool and did not need to open any windows which kept away any city mosquitos. A disadvantage point with a 7 month old child was that the lobby elevator was on the second floor so the stroller constantly needed to be carried up and down a flight of stairs. Overall though we had a great experience!

Great location

Great location, less than 10 minutes away from Firenze SMN train station, close to CAF Bus Tours pickup stop, surrounded by restaurants. Just around the corner from open air market. No more than 15 minute walk to major attractions.

Great hotel for what we needed

Hotel staff was great and very helpful. Great location in the center of Florence and near train station Santa Maria Novella and buses. Great continental breakfast included. The only draw back was the room was very small but that seems to be typical for economical rooms in italian cities. We just needed some kind of base camp where we could sleep and shower and this fit our bill. They kept the room very clean and the shower had plenty of hot water and water pressure.
