The rooms are perfectly furnished with all the 5* amenities; very modern and new. The location is good given the proximity to the station, but u still have to walk ~10-15 min to get to the center where the action is. Overall, this hotel was great
value for money!
Hotel is very centrally located only 5 minutes from Santa Maria Novella station. Staff were friendly and helpful, giving advice on local restaurants and location of car hire. Room reasonable size and very clean and comfortable.
It doesn't look like much from the outside, but once inside it is a grand old hotel. Its a little past its prime but clean and comfortable. Staff is friendly and helpful. The included breakfast buffet is excellent. The location is great. Walking
distance to the river, consulate, train station and car rentals. I would stay there again if in Florence. There is a very nice local restaurant across the street.
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
Short walk from hotel
good local restaurant across the street from hotel. Don't eat anywhere near the Ponte Vechio. Its strictly for tourists and food isn't good.
We were very glad we chose this hotel. The desk staff was very courteous and helpful. Our room was clean, comfortable and nicely decorated and was very spacious for a European room. The bathroom was also roomy and modern with big,soft towels. My
only complaint about the room is that the mattress was very hard but this seems to be the norm in Italy. I guess they just like extra firm mattresses. The complimentary breakfast was very good with plenty of food choices including fresh fruit, yogurt, cereal, cheeses and other "heartier" items. They also have a nice lobby area with comfy chairs and sofas for reading and relaxing. The Adriatico is located within walking distance of the train station. Close enough that you can walk it even when pulling a suitcase. It is centrally located to many of the "must see" sights in Florence with lots of restaurants and bars close by. It was a little noisy the first night since it was the night the street cleaners came through. Although the air conditioning was not running yet the weather in early May is still cool and we were very comfortable, we even needed a blanket at night. I highly recommend this hotel and if we ever get a chance to go to Florence again we'll stay at the Adriatico.
The people at reception were very nice and helpful. Once we got to our room and began unpacking and tried cooling the room down, we could not get the air conditioner to come on. We called the front desk and they informed us that the owner would
not turn it on until May.
Be it that we were on our 20th anniversary we wanted to switch rooms to one that had a large bed instead of the 2 singles pushed together. They told us that this is what the had as the norm for married couples.
There was also an element of 20 or 30 riff raff hanging around outside the hotel that was unnerving to us. All said and done, I woud find another place to stay.
We spent three night at the hotel and were extremely satisfied of the room decor and service. The location (near to the train station) was perfect for us and the hotel even have a free parking lot (but make sure to arrive early in the morning, as
spots fill up quickly).
They have a great free breakfast buffet as well.
The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. We definitely recommend it!
