Hotel Basilea

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Hotel Basilea is a short walk from Firenze S.M. train station and is super close to all sorts of sights, including a maybe four block walk from the Galleria dell' Accademia, where Michelangelo's David is housed, and a short walk in the other direction to the main Basilica and then on to the touristy-but-fun Ponte Vecchio. There are many street markets nearby as well, selling gorgeous leather and kitschy souvenirs. Aside from the location, the room was clean, the shower (slightly) larger than average for an Italian hotel room, and the wireless worked excellently. The staff was friendly and helpful in directing us to attractions and holding our luggage after we checked out. We would love to go back to Florence and would definitely stay at this hotel again.

This hotel was located in a very central part of the city and very close to the train station. They serve breakfast as part of the room rate. Good food, good coffee and clean. We liked it and we would return if we have the opportunity.
