Great Italian Trip

We loved this hotel! The staff was absolutely amazing and the hotel was not in the middle of the hectic square. We were able to walk to and from the shops, restaruants and train station - great location. The only complain I have it that we had a corner room and it was loud at night, other than that it was great. The Wi-Fi was free and we had breakfast every morning which made out stay much more easier as we didn't have to look for a breakfast spot. Overall, we highly recommend this hotel. Small rooms but that is the norm in Europe

Great hotel, great location

Very comfy bed, ideal location, friendly and helpful staff. The front desk staff went out of their way to help us arrange to park our car (which can be tricky in the middle of Florence!). Pretty, fresh decor, good breakfast.

Amazing!!!

This has to be one of the coolest hotels ever!!! Love the decor of the rooms, lobby, bar etc. The hotel has great views and is located close to a lot of the best spots in Florence. Breakfast was also very good. You will love this hotel.

Modern, clean, and good value

My wife and I decided to stay in Room Mate for the 2nd year in a row. That alone speaks volume, as we're pretty picky with our lodging. I really have no complains. It's modern, clean, non-pretentious, with good service and breakfast. Very importantly, it's way cheaper that anything comparable closer to Arno, yet it's a quick walk to most Florence attractions. If you pay a little extra you can get a room with a view. Highly recommend!

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Keep in mind that if your room overlooks the street you would have to keep your window closed at night, as people can be pretty loud. I believe it's the case with most Florence hotels, though.

Room Mate Lucca

Very clean. Helpful desk staff. Breakfast buffet is excellent. Check the room dimensions carefully so you won't be surprised by the size as I was. Twin beds are just a king barely separated. Living room space downstairs was very pleasant and useful.

Sightseeing tip: Long walk from hotel

Go to San Miniato and watch the sunset. Then go hear the Dominican monks chant. Take Bus 13 back across the Arno.

Great Location and Great Rooms

I stayed here for 5 nights during my honeymoon. The staff was pleasant, helpful and prompt. The Wi-Fi worked great. The rooms were clean and spacious. It was easy to walk to the center of Florence where all the best sights are (Duomo, Ponte Veccio, good restaurants and shopping) as well as Santa Maria Novella (Train Station). Breakfast is as good as you'll get anywhere else. Love the donuts. The only thing I didn't like was that the queen bed was actually two mattresses pushed together....but each were very comfortable individually.

Room Mate Luca is a very nice hotel. The decor is colorful and cheerful. The staff was helpful. The location is a few blocks from the Central Market, but at least a fifteen to twenty minute walk to the Duomo. With that being said, I would definitely stay at Room Mate Luca again.

Close to the train station and important sights. Some of the staff were not very helpful, however, while others were amazing. Good breakfast. I loved the look of this hotel.
