Hotel Ferretti1.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
This is unquestionably a true budget Pensione. No elevator to reception which is on level 2 and whilst they appear as gracious management face-to-face (heard them chatting to Asian guests and they were most disrespectable when chatted amongst themselves in Italian) they obviously are insular and arrogant by way of their actions. They disregard the smoking laws set be the Italian government, and fail to consider the comfort of their paying guests as upon opening the door you are hit, no sorry punched in the face, with this foul disgusting odour of cigarette smoke - simply unacceptable in this day and age! Granted this dissipated once their shift ends but for us, as our room was just off the reception area, after we stopped with the coughing we then had to use towels to wedge the door preventing second hand smoke coming through the bottom of the door. Room was basic - king made byway of two singles placed together. mattress uncomfortable and pillows thin. They claim that in accordance to Italian health regulations (oh this rule they respect!), towels are only changed every THIRD day . PS hey are not cotton brush towels but linen and waffle cotton towels. ...yuk. Bathroom was old and tired. A Bidet was provided however. All this aside the location is excellent. So in summation if your a healthy, athletic type that doesn't mind second hand Cigarette smoke and scratchy tea towels to dry yourself with then this is an ideal place. Its a One star establishment in an excellent location so go for it!
On the average, hotels in Europe are not cheap. Therefore for that kind of price, we got a room with bathroom in this hotel is consider reasonable. Only thing is we did not even have a small kettle in our room to cater for hot drinks. Anyway we got ourselves a small kettle at a nearby shop. The room is considered quite spacious, but it only has a fan. It is okay during the cool and cold weather, but i cannot imagine how is it going to be in summer time. Another thing is for young people is okay, not advisable for people who has weak leg or old age people, as the hotel lobby is on the 2nd floor and after check in, one has to climb onto the 3rd floor where all rooms and restaurant are located. Owners are friendly, breakfast we did not try so no comments. Location is great, near to public transports and train station, and also there are many restaurants and shops nearby. Great place to shop and dine. Overall, is good for a short stay, giving the location.
A clean hotel. I paid extra and had my own bathroom. There were other family members in 2 other rooms. There was a fan in my room. I enjoyed the breakfast with my family. Great value and location in Florence.
The location is easy to catch, it takes only 10 minutes walking from the station. The room is tiny with fare amenities and fan only, lots mosquitoes and sharing bathroom with others. The wall is thin that we could hear our neighbour's noise.
Really well situated and easy to get to everything in Florence. Bedrooms are basic but clean and the staff's local knowledge is so helpful. Definitely a place to stay if you want to see all the sights but it isn't a romantic hotel t spend time languishing in your room, the walls are thin and the rooms are small!
The best part about this hotel is it's location. Easy to walk to all the places a tourist would like to see, and only a few minutes away from the railway station. The staff were friendly, the continental breakfast was simple but perfectly adequate, the bedroom and ensuite bathroom were basic but clean, in fact everything you would expect from a budget priced hotel. On the negative side, The breakfast room is dated and drab. There was a smell of drains in our room, and it overlooked the back yard of another building with several ventilation shafts. These were really noisy all night, making it difficult to sleep.
Even though the location of this hotel is great , the rooms are very cosy and the linens and towels smells. Hospitality is ok. The hanger came out of the wall at midnight. I could hear people watching TV all night making noise. I thought even if it's one star hotel it would be ok to stay just one night, but I was wrong. I will never book this hotel again.
The location is perfect! The train station is 5 minute walk and if you find the shortcut to the duomo, the walk is about 3 minutes. The staff is very friendly and you can leave the luggage on the day of departure. We took the breakfast, it was decent. There was coffee, bread, juice, milk and cereal. It was okay to start the day with. Don't expect a big continental breakfast. Would definitely recommend this hotel because it is good and not expensive.
This hotel has a very good location, in walking distance for everything, and mainly only a few minutes from the train station. Room was clean and for a good price. Common bathroom was also clean and nice
Two persons, we stayed 3 nights (20-22 Nov) in a double room with external bathroom. We wanted a central hotel, just for sleeping, as we intended to spend all days long exploring Florence. So it was a perfect choice for us: very good location, close to the train station and all important city tourist attraction at a walking distance. In addition, the room an bathroom were perfectly clean, the sheets and towels immaculate, we also had a sink in the room and an extra blanket in case of need- but the central heating was just fine. We also choose breakfast included, which was also a good decision for starting the day: coffee from coffee machine (just enough options), tea, juice, milk, butter, melted cheese, liver pate, jam, honey, cereals, biscuits and croissants, bread and toast, even cake.... In short, very good services for a one star hotel and exactly what we needed. And last but not least: nice and helpful hotel team - we would definitely return to the same hotel for the next visit to Florence.
