Hotel Globus

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This is the perfect little boutique hotel for those who don’t mind tiny spaces. Our delightfully decorated and spotlessly clean double room had tons of character, which made up for the small area. The 2 concierges who worked at the hotel were extremely helpful and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble! The breakfast was terrific and there was a free “Welcome” drink each night between 5:30 and 8:30. Both were served in the exquisitely decorated eating area, which is just beyond the lobby. The location is perfect, just a couple blocks from the central train station and walking distance to everything. The street noise is quite loud at night. Ask for a room at the back or bring ear plugs.

Stayed in Florence for a night (way too short! I sorely regret this) and chose Hotel Globus for its proximity to SMN station, as we were heading to Venice after. The hotel is a good base to explore the city. It's a little small, but still big enough to open two full size luggages on the floor, although you have to tip toe around them after. Most of the staff were absolutely divine. The gentleman who helped us with check in was great! It's a pity I forgot to note down his name. He helped us with a restaurant reservation, and it was a pleasure seeing him at the counter when we returned from a jaunt in the city. The lady who helped us at breakfast this morning was also smiley and great :) The hotel also sent us a pre-arrival form to fill in, and we found a bottle of wine in our room when we checked in, because I mentioned that we were on honeymoon. I must say that small touches like these are very welcome in this competitive hospitality sector! The hotel also had a happy hour 530 - 830pm where they serve you some drinks, ham, wine, cheese and olives. Great to just rest your legs after walking all over the city. But I'm downgrading my review from 5 to 4 stars because unfortunately we also encountered a couple of less-than-friendly staff. All-in-all, a great stay, and I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a base to explore the beautiful city of Florence. And definitely do plan on a stay of more than a night!

I booked this hotel after reading the good reviews on trip advisor, and so glad I did. Lovely quadruple room, no 202, big enough for 4 adults. Great bathroom and shower, freshly cleaned every day with nice towels and toiletries everyday. Amazingly friendly staff here, really nice. The hotel is about a 10 minute walk from the station, and it's in the middle of everything, with easy walking around the city. Near a big leather market which has in the middle a lovely food market, with great food ready to eat upstairs, would recommend that. Have no worries about booking this hotel, it is really nice. The breakfasts are great , loads of choice, we had a great experience at the Globus, every evening a free welcome drink in the bar as well. I am very fussy with hotels, but this one was perfect for us, and I didn't find one thing that I was unhappy with, which is amazing. Book it and enjoy Florence .. Oh and free wifi...

Perfect location. Truly the best staff I have ever met at a hotel. From arriving to leaving four days later, we were made to feel like the most important guests that they had. Always a cheery smile for all the guests, in a lovely little hotel right in the heart of Florence. The hotel is clean, contemporary, very welcoming and I would not hesitate to recommend to anyone. There is a welcome drink offered every night between 17.00 and 20.30 hours. My partner celebrated a Birthday on our second day at hotel Globus and the staff made a lovely fuss of him with a little cake, sparklers and joining together to give a quick chorus of "Happy Birthday to You" - such a lovely gesture. A big thank you to all the staff at the Hotel Globus who made our four day visit to Florence so memorable.

Awesome location, great staff, newly decorated but kept some old charm. Rooms are small but who cares! Breakfast is a great selection. Happy hour is a nice touch! Giovanni and Nikolas offer great suggestions for restaurants. You can walk everywhere!

I've stayed at Hotel Globus three times in the past couple of years and will definitely stay there again. It's within easy suitcase-wheeling distance of the station and very close to the central attractions. The staff are very friendly and helpful, the rooms are clean and comfortable, and the welcome drinks are a nice addition. After staying various different hotels in Florence over the years, I'm glad to have found one that I'm happy to return to.

The clean and updated accomodations of this hotel in addition to its tremendous convenience to the train station, outdoor markets, and the attractions of Florence greatly contributed to the quality of our visit. The breakfast and happy hour offerings were tremendous and the staff was inviting, courteous, and supportive without being overly intrusive. Best mattresses on our trip helped us rest well between very busy days of touring. This was a great solution for the four of is in our family while staying in Florence and we will be back!

I stayed here from Mar.20nd to Mar.22nd during my visit in Florence. The hotel is fantastic and with no doubt the best I experienced during my travel in Europe. I booked the smallest type of room available but it turned out that the room was spacious and well-equipped. I like the modern and cozy design overall. Also, the location is very convenient, close to Firenze S.M.N. and the tourist attractions. The stay in this hotel made my days in Florence! Definitely better than the hotel experience I had in the States. Even the breakfast (as shown in the photos I uploaded), which I saw some comments blamed about, was of best quality! I really cherish my time here and hope you will enjoy your stay at this great hotel as well.

The hotel is located nearby the train station. It is a bit small but well equipped with everything you may need for your trip. The continental breakfast is inclusive. Also the happy hour for both alcoholic drinks and soft drink. Will go back again

This is a nicely appointed hotel. Located a short walk to both the train station and the duomo. The staff were friendly and helpful. The Rooms well equipped. The breakfast provided was well rounded and replenished regularly. I also enjoyed the complimentary cocktail in the evening.
