The hotel is centrally located & serves a nice breakfast.

Very nice modern stay and great location. Staff was friendly but sometimes felt rushed when trying to book attractions. Breakfast was above average and staff catered well. Rooms were clean. Bed was little stiff but manageable. Within walking distance to many of Florence's beautiful attractions and shopping district. Great restaurants near by.

Great surprise for a 4 star hotel. Very clean, very good breakfast, very comfortable.

Like this hotel , great location. Love the cleanliness and the staff was great.

It was very convenient for us since we came down from Venice on the Train and the Hotel was at a walking distance from the station.

At first they gave me a dark room with a terrible view. I went to the front desk and asked for a nicer room and they ended up giving me one of the nicest rooms in the hotel without charging me extra.

Clean, well located. The views from the room are ugly and the bathtub is so high that you need either a stool or be really careful not to trip and fall down. The staff is efficient but not necessarily friendly.

We are happy with this hotel. Feel manager care for guests. -nice location -new renovation -good breakfast -staffs in dining room are very friendly -stalls at reception would answer the questions but kind of impatience.

Friendly and helpful staff. Great breakfast bar. Located close to the train station and the Arno river. Handy and convenient location. Very clean room. Would have liked to have a balcony or at least access to the beautiful patio area off the restaurant that was closed after dinner.

The location was a quick 10 minute walk from the main sites. The hotel was well-appointed. Only wish they'd had a gym.

Everything is perfect here! Very near the terminal and bus station

Arrived...NO PARKING.....then they "found"... walked us to our room--I couldn't believe 4 * would have such ugly, no windows!!!! old looking and smelly room! After a long debate that it's not acceptable, we were moved to a much nicer room! Food was good.

My husband and I stayed here on our honeymoon, the staff was very kind, our room was clean, but the bed was pretty uncomfortable and the area was a bit seedy (near to the train station). The staff recommended a wine tour that ended up bring more of a sales pitch and there was not in fact free-wifi like had been stated, but instead we were given 30 minutes free wifi and then there was a charge of 5 euro per forty minutes there after. We eneded up having cafe and getting free wifi at a corner cafe but could have just spent that money towards a place where that was included, which was dissapointing. For these reasons the place felt a bit like a tourist trap. I would recommend staying on the other side of the Arno, at a bed and breakfast. Overall we had an ok time at this hotel, but you can get more for your money.

We initially chose this hotel thinking that we would be driving, so were very pleased to find that it was also very close (walking distance) to the Firenze SMN train station. This is a Best Western Hotel, which is located about 1 block from the Arno. It is a short distance from Ponte Vecchio, The duomo, Palazzo Pitti and the Boboli Gardens. The centrale market for shopping for leather goods. Everything within easy walking distance. A nice breakfast was included, with cappuccino. Fruits, breads, cheeses, hams, tarts, etc... The room included a nice size tub with shower, great for soaking after a day in the grueling 100 degree temperatures. The air conditioning was greatly appreciated. WiFi could be purchased in the lobby for a fee or in the room there was another arrangement that wasn't WiFi but wouldn't work with my iPad, so to the lobby, I went! Unfortunately, this meant limited privacy for Skype calls. Overall, the hotel was clean and comfortable, convenient to everything. A bonus for us was that it did have a laundry right next door (although you will pay dearly for allowing the little man who hangs out there help you, besides the fact that he will throw all of your linen in the dryer when you are not looking, he will also add a significant percentage onto your bill for helping you out. I am sure the Italians know how to argue with him better than we did.) Another couple of bonuses were the little market next door where we could get our water for the next day in advance and cool it in our mini-fridge for the days travels. A little grocer in the other direction had great deli selections and fruit, another half block had a great selection of gourmet items and wines.

We arrived at the hotel much earlier than the check in time, however, the Hotel was able to let us check in ealier and that means a lots to us after a very tired trip.

The rooms are perfectly furnished with all the 5* amenities; very modern and new. The location is good given the proximity to the station, but u still have to walk ~10-15 min to get to the center where the action is. Overall, this hotel was great value for money!

Clean comfortable room..GREAT view of the mountains from room. Clean updated bathroom...Staff were very nice...especially Mohammed. Would recommend

It doesn't look like much from the outside, but once inside it is a grand old hotel. Its a little past its prime but clean and comfortable. Staff is friendly and helpful. The included breakfast buffet is excellent. The location is great. Walking distance to the river, consulate, train station and car rentals. I would stay there again if in Florence. There is a very nice local restaurant across the street.

We were very glad we chose this hotel. The desk staff was very courteous and helpful. Our room was clean, comfortable and nicely decorated and was very spacious for a European room. The bathroom was also roomy and modern with big,soft towels. My only complaint about the room is that the mattress was very hard but this seems to be the norm in Italy. I guess they just like extra firm mattresses. The complimentary breakfast was very good with plenty of food choices including fresh fruit, yogurt, cereal, cheeses and other "heartier" items. They also have a nice lobby area with comfy chairs and sofas for reading and relaxing. The Adriatico is located within walking distance of the train station. Close enough that you can walk it even when pulling a suitcase. It is centrally located to many of the "must see" sights in Florence with lots of restaurants and bars close by. It was a little noisy the first night since it was the night the street cleaners came through. Although the air conditioning was not running yet the weather in early May is still cool and we were very comfortable, we even needed a blanket at night. I highly recommend this hotel and if we ever get a chance to go to Florence again we'll stay at the Adriatico.
