The nicest staff members and beautiful room... good breakfast selection

Location is great, staff is awesome, roof top deck with the restuarant is excellent

I have stayed there many times and will again. Staff very helpful and rooms are fine.

Nice hotel in Florence. Great restaurant with open terrace and wonderful views of city. Would stay here again.

This hotel was in walking distance to so much, including the train station which made it easy to go see other places and still make it back to enjoy our hotel. The staff was pleasant and very helpful.

A trip I will remember. The room was big and comfortable.

Stayed at this hotel twice over the last 2 years. First time with my wife and youngest daughter during the summer. Second time for a workshop around christmas time. Located in a nice quiet area next to the river. easy walk from the train station. Good breakfast, clean rooms, relatively quiet. Very good deal. I'd return to this place in the future

Overall this was a great hotel. It isn't a luxury hotel, but it was nice, well maintained, and spacious compared to many EU hotels we've stayed in. It' was an easy walk from the train station upon arrival, and a pleasant walk to the main sights we wanted to see, e.g. Duomo, David, Ponte Vecchio. Staff were very friendly, and spoke English(which is much appreciated, and should never be taken for granted when abroad). Only thing that could be improved was price, although it wasn't any "worse" than comparable hotels we looked at.

The rooms were beautiful, the breakfast was fantastic, and the staff were extremely helpful. This was a great value in an ideal location walking distance to everything Florence has to offer.

My wife and I spent two nights at the Kraft Hotel. Our experience was excellent: the rooms are comfortable and clean, the air conditioning works well, the staff is extremely helpful, the rooftop view is stunning, breakfast is ample, and there is free internet access. We also ate at the hotel's restaurant, which was outstanding. As to location, the Kraft is a 10-15 minute walk from the main tourist sights in Florence in a quiet neighborhood near the Arno. It is quite close to the Santa Maria Novella train station, a major transportation hub,

I'd stay here again - good location, helpful staff.

The staff was awesome! Clean hotel, a contemporary lounge area. The rooftop bar/garden wqas already closed for this season, I can only imagine how great it would of been to sit up there with the amazing views of Firenze. My 19 yr. old and I stayed there for 4 nights. I will book again!

I really enjoyed my stay at this hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We asked a lot of questions about the area, and they gave us great advice. We stayed 2 nights. They were booked the first night, so we had a room with 1 bed and had been a smoking room. We requested a change, and they moved us to a much larger room and moved our luggage for us. The rooftop is simply amazing! The pool was a little cold, but there were some great views of the city. We really enjoyed having a drink up there at night after a long day of walking. The hotel is close to the train station, and about a 15 minute walk from the main sites. We still enjoyed the walk though because it took you along the river!

The hotel lobby and room decor was dated but nice and clean. The staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast was quite good. The rooftop restaurant and pool were excellent. The nightly coffee and biscotti on the roof cafe overlooking the city were perfect.

This hotel is a well managed and excellent place. The staff is professional and helpful. The breakfast was just this side of awesome. (Scrambled eggs and bacon as well as the usual continental fare) The pool is an unexpected treat in a continental city. Negatives?: no air conditioning and no screens on the windows.Yes I was bitten by an aggressive Florintine mosquito! It is a healthy walk to the Duomo, etc.

The rooms have huge air vents and during several times we could smell smoke. Staff was rude and indifferent. Bedding old and stained. Location is quiet but the rooms are not. We heard every door bang and could hear the conversations in the hall and from other rooms. Spend more and go with a better hotel. It ruined my stay in Florence. This is not a four star hotel. Not even two star.

The room and bathroom were big. Air conditioner worked well. Just a short walk to the center of the city. The pool was small but had a fantastic view of the city. If we come back we will stay here again!

The hotel is chic and the staff is very helpful. The breakfast is plentiful and superb. We loved it. the price is unbeatable too.
