Long walk downtown

We really liked the Hotel Kraft. Nice clean large room with modern bath. Plenty of hot water. Friendly and helpful staff. The only drawback is it is long (15 min) walk to the historic area (Ponte Vecchio). Nice views from the roof top garden. The breakfast was very good.

Great coffee

Comfortable room, not very large but with a with comfortable bed. TV in the room provided CNN and BBC. The shower stall was a bit tight, but certainly adequate. The hotel was quiet. Breakfast(included) was very nice and I very much enjoyed the coffee.The service was friendly and helpful. The location was within a comfortable walk to all the museums, churches, and sites I wanted to see. Being a bolck from the river, always helped me to find it after my daily travels. A ten minute walk took me to the bus station (next to the train station)and I was able to save on cab fare to airport.

Excellent hotel

My wife and I spent two nights at the Kraft Hotel. Our experience was excellent: the rooms are comfortable and clean, the air conditioning works well, the staff is extremely helpful, the rooftop view is stunning, breakfast is ample, and there is free internet access. We also ate at the hotel's restaurant, which was outstanding. As to location, the Kraft is a 10-15 minute walk from the main tourist sights in Florence in a quiet neighborhood near the Arno. It is quite close to the Santa Maria Novella train station, a major transportation hub,

Good price chill fab rooftop amenities

The hotel lobby and room decor was dated but nice and clean. The staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast was quite good. The rooftop restaurant and pool were excellent. The nightly coffee and biscotti on the roof cafe overlooking the city were perfect.
