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.

Great value

This is a great little hotel in close proximity to all Florence's attractions. The hotel's staff is very helpful in all problems that a traveler might have. They are very knowledgeable about city's attractions as well as traveling directions. We planned to visit a town in Tuscany, and they not only gave an advice when to go, but also printed out a train schedule for our destination. Yes, the rooms are actually quite small, but this is common for European hotels. The important part that they are immaculately clean. The hotel is air conditioned, but nights in Florence are very mild and don't really require AC during the night. We tried to sleep with open windows but the hotel is located near San Lorenzo market, and sometimes as early as 6AM we would wake up from the noise caused by merchants, who were rolling in their goods on wooden carts. Also the street is very narrow, the buildings are tall and the acoustics amplifies the sounds of even the quiet conversation, not to mention the excited chatter of people who were making their way to their destinations late at night after visiting the restaurants in the area. This is the only problem that we had, but it can be, probably, easily overcome by requesting a room that is not facing the street. Other than that we were very happy with our stay.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

For delicious and cheap lunch try the eateries located inside Mercato Centralo (Central Market) for agricultural goods located about 100 yards from the hotel. For dinner try a great restaurant also about 100 yards from the hotel, Trattoria Strattoco, that boast that their food is Cucina Casalinga (home cooking) Their food is exceptional and house wine is 5 Euros per half a liter.

SMALL AND BIG

I didn't need a lot from a hotel. Just a comfortable place to stay. Globus with its perfect location was exactly what I needed. The rooms are small but the bed was quite comfortable. Although the room is modest, it has modern details that brings the hotel to another category. This shows how the hotel wants to give a great experience to their costumers. The bathroom was spotless with every amenity you need. The breakfast was also quite but don't expect an IHOP breakfast. I would definitely stay here again. The front desk, very very helpful.

Class A Staff

Staff of the Hotel could not have been more helpful or accomodating. Nothing seemed to be a problem. The Hotel was conveniently located to the train station and most attractions. Room was small (as expected) and very clean.

Great hotel in Florence

Fantastic little hotel in the old, city-center of Florence. Great staff at the front desk and Roberto at the breakfast buffet does a great job. Easy walking distance to all major points of interest in the center of Florence. We would definitely stay there again.

great location, nice hotel, friendly

Great Location, very friendly and helpful reception staff, big room, strong enough air conditioner, clean and nicely renovated. Simply a nicely modern pleasant hotel with staff that tries to make your stay comfortable! Only negative point I could think of is the fact that you need to climb 2 flights of stair before you meet the friendly/helpful receptionist.

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.
