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 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.

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 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 and the best service staff in town.

The hotel was good for the price. We stayed in the economy room so it was small. I assume the other rooms (standard and deluxe) must be better. The breakfast was very good and abundant. The staff is the best. Nick and Lukas are really good as what they do. Thank you!

Perfect for a Florentine getaway

The hotel is in an excellent location for central Florence, right near the markets and San Lorenzo. There is a flight of stairs to navigate before you get to the reception, and then a very slow lift to take you to other floors. The room was cosy, with a very compact bathroom. But we were out and about all day so didn't spend a lot of time in the room. The breakfast was adequate, no hot food but a reasonable selection of cold food. Very close to restaurants and shops, so we were able to easily drop off our shopping before continuing to see the churches and galleries.

If you visit Florence in a low season, do not pre-book the attractions such as the Uffizi. It is cheaper to just turn up and buy a ticket at the door.

Wonderful location

The best part of the hotel was it's location - It was near the train station and within 30 minutes walking distance of most sites to see in Florence as well as the shopping market - Free internet was a plus -There were choices of restaurants within the block - Staff was most courteous and helpful - rooms were clean and comfortable, although very small and the hair dryer was inadequate. Would stay there again

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.
