My husband and I went to Pisa and Florence for our summer holiday and stayed in hotel De la Pace while in Florence. The staff were all very friendly and helpful with all our questions, the breakfast was excellent and the room was fantastic. Would definitely stay here again.
Pro:the best hung about the hotel is the location, a few min away from train station. Has a kettle and coffee making facilities, but no plug to use the kettle. Mini market right outside and around the corner. Restaurants are available on doorstep. Buffet Breakfast is available at 9 Euro. We did not try, we had an early train. Staff at reception very helpful Cons:hotel is very old and furniture needs to be replaced. The area looks a bit seedy with a lot of homeless people just sitting around. No fridge no safe
This Hotel is close to the David Museum and convenient to good restaurants and monuments. The staff were very efficient, helpful with getting us settled and providing directions etc. The rooms are very modern for a very old hotel, The only negative was the noisy airconditioning (we could not slow down the fan). B.....Welland Canada
Myself and my partner stayed here for 2 nights when staying in Florence. The location was brilliant - a 10 min walk to all main attractions with a 5 min walk to David. George at Reception was very friendly, welcoming and extremely helpful in regards to directions and recommendations. The room was really nice and big and had lovely high ceilings. It was very clean. Breakfast was very good with lots to choose from. I would defiantly stay here again. I highly recommend!
We stayed in a large, sunny room - nothing to complain about, although it is not luxurious either. There was a large breakfast buffet with many options. Great location, being only a 10-15 minute walk from the Duomo.
We were here 1 night at the end of a 10 day trip. The hotel is nice and the staff was friendly. We enjoyed a free drink in the bar and had a nice chat with the bartender. However, the hairdryer in our room didn't work and the air conditioner was not working well, or at least not well enough for a warm June evening, because we all (4 of us) woke up at 2 am drenched in sweat. I had to open a window, which worked well enough, until the street noises start around 5:30 am. Not our best sleep. The location is great, not far from the Duomo. The breakfast was ok. Nothing special, soggy bacon, and no cappuccino. We came down at 8:45 and saw pancakes on someone's table but there weren't any more left, and they didn't make more, which was odd since breakfast went on for 45 more minutes. So get up early if you want pancakes. We liked the dog that hung around the lobby.
I have to say I was disappointed in general with the hotel. The rooms were basic. The lift to the rooms tiny, which meant you were waiting ages to use it when busy. The breakfast only starts at 7:30 mid week which is late for those who are catching excursions.. I found the reception staff had a lack of general knowledge about the basic tourist information. Also none of them wore name tags which is very impersonal.. the only plus point of the hotel was its location.
Our room was very spacious, with high ceiling but the place is clearly a little run down. The shower glass was not sealed so the bathroom would flood with every shower. The cleaning was also pretty disappointing, my black dress felt on the floor in a corner and it was white of dust when I picked it up suggesting some superficial cleaning. Breakfast is nice with a lovely buffet and some nice coffee made by the stuff. Stuff is very nice but Overall the place is a bit too expensive for what it is.
We traveled to Florence at the beginning of April, 2017. The hotel was absolutely great. Nice room, fantastic breakfast, and friendly helpful staff. Front desk assisted us with dinner recommendations and tour companies. Would definitely recommend staying here!
The hotel is clean and tastefully decorated but: the elevator was broken for at least 12 hours, the minibar was empty (not even water), the mattress was the thinnest I've ever slept on in a hotel, the water pressure was low, the room was cold and there was no extra blanket.
