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,

Stayed at this hotel twice over the last 2 years. First time with my wife and youngest daughter during the summer. Second time for a workshop around christmas time. Located in a nice quiet area next to the river. easy walk from the train station. Good breakfast, clean rooms, relatively quiet. Very good deal. I'd return to this place in the future

Very Friendly to International Travelers

Hotel Kraft was very comfortable, the standard room had a king-size bed, desk with chair, two bedside tables, a lounge chair, TV with several English speaking channels and several lamps. The bathroom had a vanity area, there was adequate space for hanging clothes, and there were two suitcase stands. The corner room had windows in two directions, with one facing the Arno River. A free cold continental breakfast was provided every morning which included a variety of fresh fruit, yogurts, pastries, meats, boiled eggs, cheese, and cereals. The hotel also had rooftop dining for lunch and dinner and a rooftop bar. The staff was all friendly, speaking several languages, efficient with problem solving, arranging tours and taxis. The hotel was located on the edge of the old section of Florience with many of the main attractions within walking distance.

The Arno River was less than two blocks from the hotel. A ten minute walk along the Arno takes you to the Ponte Vecchio Florence's most famous bridge lined with gold and silver shops.

Wonderful base for exploring Florence

The Hotel Kraft is a wonderful hotel, easily on par with many significantly less budget-friendly establishments. Although not in the very center of the city, it is nonetheless very close to all what is important: Florence is a wonderful city in that everything is close. A five minute walk finds you in the Piazza del Republica - the center of the city, with shopping, dining, museums and nightlife all around. The hotel distributes wonderful maps showing off all the important parts of Florence. The breakfast is pleasant, and the staff are friendly and available to help with any tourism questions - including reservations and knowledge about local dining and night-life. Overall a wonderful place to relax and explore the city from.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

A few minutes walk finds you in one of Florence's many shopping / dining Vias. Lots of very nice Italian dining options and a fair selection for the shopping-inclined.

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.

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.
