Great location! Limited amenities, but friendliness of the hotel staff made up for it!

nice location, close to train station, and restarants

Super friendly staff. Great location. Close to train station and Shopping and Duomo. Welcome drink each night. Highly recommended. P. S. Room size is small but that is what we expected. Very clean with standing shower.

Muy buen hotel, con staff muy amable, siempre dispuestos a ayudar. El hotel esta muy bien ubicado, puedes llegar caminando a muchos de los puntos mas interesantes de la ciudad. El desayuno es muy completo y para comer hay muchos restaurantes a escasos metros. El hotel esta muy bien diseñado, que hace una estancia confortable.

The location is great, it is in the heart of Florence, near all the great landmarks, markets, and shopping. The hotel itself is very clean. The breakfast bar is phenomenal. They offer a wine happy hour at their bar in the evenings. Even if you buy your own bottle, they will open it for you and let you sit at the bar. The staff is wonderful, we encountered such pleasant, helpful people, they really made the trip so much better.

Great breakfast, comfortable room, knowledgeable front desk staff!

I have never written a review before for anything but the Globus Hotel really left a great impression on me so I decided to write one. The service level at this hotel was really incredible. The perfect balance of being thoughtful and helpful yet not being too intrusive and annoying. They were also equally kind to and friendly with my wife and I and our somewhat rambunctious 9 and 6 year old sons. The rooms were nicely appointed though the one slight negative was that since it was a renovated old building, only one HVAC system (heating or cooling) could be run for the entire hotel and we were there in a sort of in-between temperature period where either could be used depending on preference. There was individual room temp control though. Still, that is common in many buildings so we just left the window open a little at night and it was fine. The front desk people were the highlight. The daily breakfast and evening drink were also nice touches. If you can get this kind of hotel and service at this price, I do not see the point of staying in larger "5-star Hotels". I would not hesitate to stay here again and I wish that this brand expand to other cities as they would do very well.

Small room but nice hotel. Good breakfast. Walking distance to the city center.

Excellent hotel. Friendly staff, clean new rooms, and best breakfast ever. I recommend everyone to stay here. I would stay here again if I go to Firenze again. Just 3 blocks from train station, and minutes from other museums and attractions. Perfect!

Very clean hotel with extremely courteous and helpful staff with the knowledge of English. Air-conditioning worked very well even on extremely hot days. Room and bathroom well appointed and modern, wi-fi internet worked well, good breakfast. The hotel is at ideal location - five minute walk from Duomo, 15 minute walk from Uffizi, five minute walk from the main train station (and trains runs very well in Italy; from the main train station in Florence you can do daily trips by train to Pisa and Siena), plenty of restaurants nearby.

Do yourself a favor and book this hotel immediately! It is super clean, up to date, elevators, air conditioning, amazing breakfast, friendly and helpful staff. We had a horrible hotel in Rome, so left early and got to Florence 2 days before our reservation and unfortunately Hotel Globus was booked, so we stayed down the street at another place that was a dump. So we were very thankful when it was time to leave the other hotel and come to Hotel Globus. The staff is incredible, they are so friendly and helpful. Please do yourself a favor and ask the staff for restaurant recommendations. We did and we were extremely happy with both restaurants they recommended. The first restaurant was I think Natalino, it was the best meal we had on our entire 3 week trip. Also if you get sick of Italian food there is an amazing chinese restaurant 3 doors down to the left when you walk out of the hotel. Also don't miss the breakfast at the hotel, yummy food and the ladies serving you are so sweet!

The hotel was clean and staff was friendly. Location was great as well. However, the WiFi was not working half the time and the other half it was extremely slow. Very inconvenient when you are trying to look things up or answer a few work emails. Based on that alone, I would not stay at this hotel again. However, if not having internet doesn’t bother you, I’d recommend this hotel.

We had the Quad room. The room was spacious with its own separate sitting area which was helpful when our family woke up early and didn't want to disturb the rest by turning on the light in the bedroom. The staff was great. The bed was SO comfortable and the bathroom was large. The breakfast was marvelous and hearty to last us all morning. Easy to get to from the train station. So highly recommend and would definitely come back here again in the future.

Small chic hotel, new and modern! Breakfast was great and staff is awesome! Near everything, walking distance to all major attractions and train station... would recommend

I stayed at Hotel Globus about 2 months ago. It was my first stop in my Italy visit of multiple cities. The hotel was located downtown right in the heart of Florence and you had access to transportation anywhere you wanted to go. It is walking distance from the train station where a lot of tours/activities leave from so that was great. You are few minutes walking from all the main attractions and restaurants/cafes. The staff was great!! Super nice and friendly. I dealth with two people for our 2 night stay, a male and a female with curly hair (don't remember the names). They were both very informative and very professional. I think the lady was doing a double one of the days because I saw her one whole day there and she was so friendly and nice despite her long shift. She even called our next hotel in Venice to tell us the best way to get there and got us specific info on what ferry to take and how to get around town. Super nice so thank you for that. Their breakfast had lots of variety and extremely fresh. They offer a snack around 6 or 7pm everyday which they serve beer and various snacks like cheeses, chips, pretzels and some cakes. The rooms were extremely clean. Shower was very good size. The rooms aren't the biggest but they are definitely spacioius enough to put bags and sleep well. Beds were comfy. Absolutely no complaints and will definitely be back when I make it back to Florence.

Hotel Globus is the best. Rooms are clean and updared. Location is prime- plenty of places to eat and close by to the train. Staff is awesome.

Dear Guest, We honestly cannot thank you enough for your fantastic review about Your stay with us :))) We are thrilled to read that you enjoyed our central location. One of best as it is central with the best of both worlds: tucked away on a small street, we are in a very quiet location but as we are so close to everything, you can easily enjoy the lively area of San Lorenzo Market. Your remarks about our breakfast in particular make us very happy because our team works hard on offering great products in a nice setting with an impeccable service. It is great also that you noticed our high cleanliness standards which we have here at the Globus Urban Hotel. We look forward to welcoming you back when you are in Florence. Warmest regards,
