I will stay here again

For the price this hotel was amazing. The best thing about it was the receptionist/concierge whose recommendations for food and coffees and general interest were better than any guide book. Everyone who works here is charming and helpful.

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...

Dinner amongst Florentines at Napo in Piazza del Carmine, followed by drinks and fun with the crowd right across the Piazza at La Dolce Vita. Good times...

nice hotel but bring extra money

It was a nice hotel but everything extra cost money. The parking, the internet, etc. We swam at the small pool and drank at the roof top bar, which was very nice, but expensive.

Go to the yellow bar. It is a great family style restraunt with home-made pasta that is pretty cheap for what you get. It is a must when in Florence.

Staff is top notch

The staff at this hotel made the experience excellent. They were attentive, friendly professional and very helpful. Rooms were small, but that's typical. Considering the good price I think this hotel was top notch. Would stay here again.

Great hotel with an amazing rooftop view!

I really enjoyed my stay at this hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We asked a lot of questions about the area, and they gave us great advice. We stayed 2 nights. They were booked the first night, so we had a room with 1 bed and had been a smoking room. We requested a change, and they moved us to a much larger room and moved our luggage for us. The rooftop is simply amazing! The pool was a little cold, but there were some great views of the city. We really enjoyed having a drink up there at night after a long day of walking. The hotel is close to the train station, and about a 15 minute walk from the main sites. We still enjoyed the walk though because it took you along the river!

Just walk along the river! You'll see a lot and it'll take you right to Ponte Vecchio, which is where the action is!
