Auto Park Hotel3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
We decided to stay at this hotel as we only needed a place to sleep and park the car near the city. That is the only plus at this hotel. The staff was awful (the receptionist in the morning was nice). In the evening we got there and one of the receptionists was drunk. There was another person there and they were fighting... The room was awful, you had to open the shower door so that you could shower properly. It was old. You could hear everything through the walls. Everything. The wifi did not work well. The ac did not work well. Overall needs so much work done.
We stayed here as part of a contiki tour for one night, it was an upgrade from the campsite. 3 rooms from contiki got broken into. The staff didnt seem to care at all. The doors werent bashed in, so it looked like an inside job as the hotel knew our schedule as well as said we could hand our keys into reception instead of carrying them. I had a bad view of Italy from then on as it was our 1st stop there. Please beware of this hotel!
We stayed here as part of our contiki trip for just a night. We thought the room was small, but all we were there for was to sleep so that didn't bother us. It was very warm when we got in there and the floors were warm too. Like it could have been heated! We thought we'd have a look out the window but was confronted with a blind system that we thought we'd best leave alone! The bathroom was small and the shower tiny! I am a little person but even I struggled not to hit the shower off while I was in it! It wasn't the most sound proof room either, we heard people coming and going from the hallway. I know we had breakfast here but I can't comment as I actually can't remember what it was like! That's contiki for you!
I'll start positively... The room was clean, the towels soft, the Staff friendly and the bed comfortable. However the walls were exceptionally thin so you can't get a good night's sleep, I was woken at 7 both mornings by the sound of furniture being moved and incredibly loud electric shutters opening. The Breakfast was awful. I understand this is budget accommodation but there's a way to do cheap while still providing quailty. The surroundings were terrible although the bus was close and the center 20 minutes away. There's a nice wine bar on the other side of the motorway, directly opposite the hotel, would recommend the pizza. Pro? Cheap and has a car park. Con? Everything else.
Others have posted the same disgusting dirty air return photo in the bathroom, and opening the blinds showed an unimpressive view of the parking garage. Two strikes there for the room, and the meal was the worst my wife and I experienced in Italy. Italians love food, their pasta was terrible and the selection limited. Chock this up to Expat Explore not getting us into good accommodations, generally cutting corners. I'd would not let anyone I know stay here
Jim Carrey once said: "Before you marry someone, make them use slow internet to make you see what kind of a person they are". Well... These guys took this qoute to seriously. Couldn't load a pic and it took 2 hours to send one. The breakfast was... well solid i'd say.
Was like we were back in the 60's , good for a nights stop over I guess, not much around near by to go out and grab a bite or a drink , barely fitted in the shower , took 20minutes for warm water to cone out
for those traveling by car is a good choice for the closed parking lot and guard it allows you to leave the car and go to florence center using the bus 22. breakfast is kindly served by friendly staff and the food it's good good wi-fi the price matches the service
its a 3 star hotel so do not expect much. the receptionist was nice, we did not have any problem with the room, we only spent a night here. i guess it is for people who travel through the country and need a place to sleep and it is a perfect place on a cheap price.
Everything you would expect from a cheap 3 star hotel. Maintenance was bad, things just looked like they were going to fall apart. Beds sucked. WiFi sucked (Max speed I got was 75kb/s, plus connection was sketchy). The only good things were that the bus station was relatively close, going directly to the centre of the city, and the breakfast was not bad either.
