In tune with the perfection of the city

Extremely friendly and helpful staff. My room was small, but I was a single person and so it made sense--still it was comfortable, furnished charmingly, and with a great bathroom. The breakfasts are abundant. The walk to the main area for attractions is about 15 minutes, but I really liked being a bit away from all the bustle and walking along the river to the main area or strolling through the charming streets, with great shopping along the way. A wonderful haven in a spectacular city and I highly recommend it.

Very good Hotel

This hotel is a well managed and excellent place. The staff is professional and helpful. The breakfast was just this side of awesome. (Scrambled eggs and bacon as well as the usual continental fare) The pool is an unexpected treat in a continental city. Negatives?: no air conditioning and no screens on the windows.Yes I was bitten by an aggressive Florintine mosquito! It is a healthy walk to the Duomo, etc.

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.
