Conveniently located, walking distance to everything

Would recommend Sat, Aug 25, 2012
We initially chose this hotel thinking that we would be driving, so were very pleased to find that it was also very close (walking distance) to the Firenze SMN train station. This is a Best Western Hotel, which is located about 1 block from the Arno. It is a short distance from Ponte Vecchio, The duomo, Palazzo Pitti and the Boboli Gardens. The centrale market for shopping for leather goods. Everything within easy walking distance. A nice breakfast was included, with cappuccino. Fruits, breads, cheeses, hams, tarts, etc... The room included a nice size tub with shower, great for soaking after a day in the grueling 100 degree temperatures. The air conditioning was greatly appreciated. WiFi could be purchased in the lobby for a fee or in the room there was another arrangement that wasn't WiFi but wouldn't work with my iPad, so to the lobby, I went! Unfortunately, this meant limited privacy for Skype calls. Overall, the hotel was clean and comfortable, convenient to everything. A bonus for us was that it did have a laundry right next door (although you will pay dearly for allowing the little man who hangs out there help you, besides the fact that he will throw all of your linen in the dryer when you are not looking, he will also add a significant percentage onto your bill for helping you out. I am sure the Italians know how to argue with him better than we did.) Another couple of bonuses were the little market next door where we could get our water for the next day in advance and cool it in our mini-fridge for the days travels. A little grocer in the other direction had great deli selections and fruit, another half block had a great selection of gourmet items and wines.

Dining

Trattoria de Armando... Is a short block away on Borgo Ognissanti heading away from Ponte Vecchio. The owner is a gem! The restaurant has been around since 1957 and has been frequented by famous dancers, actors, singers whose photos line the walls. The food is well prepared and original Tuscan flavors! The tomatoes in this region just pop with flavor, so try the Panzanella. If you are a tripe lover, my partner swears it was the best he ever ate. Everything we tried was delicious and wonderful!

Excellent rooms and value for money

Would recommend Thu, Jun 21, 2012
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!

nice hotel

Would recommend Mon, Nov 7, 2011
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.

Dining

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.

Very nice hotel

Would recommend Thu, May 12, 2011
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.

NO A/C UNTIL MAY

Would not recommend Mon, Apr 11, 2011
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.
