Hotel Kraft

The room and bathroom were big. Air conditioner worked well. Just a short walk to the center of the city. The pool was small but had a fantastic view of the city. If we come back we will stay here again!

Very nice and inexpensive for Florence

We were able to find the hotel easily from the train station even at 7:00 pm. The staff was very nice and the food was great. At the breakfast buffet, they bring your coffee, espresso, or cappuccino to the table...which is made to order. We wished it was closer to the sites of Florence, but not terrible. Summer would be a better time to stay here to take advantage of the pool and roof garden.

Fine settimana in Firenze

My friend and I were back in town for a quick weekend after moving away over a year ago. We had shopping to do and many old haunts to visit, which was easy and stress free from the location of the Kraft Hotel. Knowing how nightmarish it is to drive in the limited traffic zones and finding parking in the center, it was a nice bonus that the hotel offered parking at a remote garage for 15 euros. They took it away and returned it to the front of the hotel when it was requested. Very easy. The room was in the refurbished part and was very nice, modern and clean. The mini bar was able to stash our bottle of champagne until we were ready for it too. The only surprise was the packaged brioche and cornetti that were supplied for continental breakfast! That was a shocker, as there are umpteen bakeries all around Florence where we could have gotten fresh ones, straight out of the oven for less than one euro! Easy to change though, and I would suggest that they do! Thanks for the memories, dear Florence...

lovely hotel

A very welcoming hotel, nice rooms and an attentive staff. Pool on the roof was a nice way to end the day. It's small but absolutely fine. There's also a lovely bar/restaurant on the roof which we enjoyed.

Happy to Return

The room was nice, with it's own private balcony and a large bathroom. The air conditioning was a little weak by American standards, but was very good by Italian standards. We highly recommend the rooftop. The pool is small, but has a nice view. And the staff and the view from the rooftop bar was fabulous. (Try the sangria.)
