Hotel La Fortezza

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The hotel was clean and smart, a very modern style with pleasant and cheerful staff. Very impressed with the hotel as it was actually part of a cheap deal for my partner and I. Would definitely recommend the hotel for couples looking to stay in Florence without paying too much, the city centre is a ten minute walk from the hotel and very easy to get to.

We would recommend Hotel La Fortezza. It was very clean; room and beds comfortable and suited our needs. Within walking distance of centre. Staff cheerful and very helpful. Continental breakfast extensive. We had an excellent stay and wouldn't hesitate to return.

The staff really made our stay, there local knowledge of where to eat, bus routes, what to see the best times to go and how friendly everyone was. The lounge was a very relaxing place to be. All the main must see sites were a comfortable walk from the hotel.

Was a great trip. First time in Italia and Firenze. Hotel rooms were not that "fancy" what expression photos gave, and room was in the cellar level, which was kinda odd to me, but room itself was pretty ok and nice. Staff is really helpful and kind. Location around 2km from Piazza Del Duomo, and pretty close to Train station. So all in all, 3.5/5 i would star it. Good and easy place to be. Price was avarage in my opinion. Grazie.

Staying at La Fortezza with friends for the marathon. Found the Hotel staff very welcoming and helpful, room clean & comfortable with telephone,TV,fridge ( with bottled water) and safe. Excellent breakfast. Only drawback it’s quite a long walk to station ( about 20 mins) but there are buses fairly close by. My room was at the back & it was very quiet.

You can choose this hotel without any doubt! The staff is really really nice and the hotel is quite close to the city center. Aprox. 10 minute walk. Thank you for your warm welcome and for making my trip worth my while ! :)

Location: The hotel is located approximately 1.3km away from the SM Novella Train Station. (we took a train from Rome to Florence). My wife and i had 2 pieces of luggage with wheels and we were comfortably able to navigate through the streets to the hotel. Roads are well marked and the hotel is easy to find. the hotel is located in a quiet street off a main road. the tourist area is under a kilometre away - a cool pleasant walk. the walk is enjoyable as you pass the Independence Square / Park. being autumn, it was nippy but the golden brown leaves laying in the park floor made it look majestic. however, there are not many restaurants close by. my wife and i, however, enjoyed this as we could enjoy the actual beauty of Florence and apppreciate her beauty without too many people. Staff: the hotel staff are kind, courteous and friendly. the check-in was relatively quick and the Lady at the Front Desk offered to book any tours for us and gave us a map of the city highlighting areas of interest with the hotel as a reference point. Breakfast staff were courteous and polite. Rooms: the rooms are spacious and comfortable. being autumn, it was cold outside. however, the room had an aircon/ heater which was awesome. the room itself, linen and bathrooms were very clean. bathroom had a toilet, sink, shower and a bidet and a heater. Sadly, the room does not include a kettle. i had inquired if we could borrow / hire a kettle. however, reception advised that it was reserved for their premier / executive suites. it would have been nice if we could hire one. Summary: All in all, an excellent hotel that is very comfortable, clean and conveniently located.

We stayed here for 6 nights. This hotel whilst in a great location and exceptionally clean does need to make some improvements to bring it to a 3 star hotel. Whilst there are tea and coffee making facilities in the room the cups are polystyrene and there was no milk/coffeemate provided. The Wi-fi needs to be bought up to speed. The Wi-Fi really is poor and in this day and age just isn’t necessary. It just makes life difficult particularly when 4g isn’t always available. For the size of the property and number of guests it definitely needs improving!! The choice of TV channels is vast but only 1 in English. The rooms are basic in terms of luxury but the beds were super comfortable. The continental breakfast was perfect and everything you could possibly want is included. The staff could not do enough for you and could not be more helpful. Overall we were happy to be here but wouldn’t necessarily stay here again.

Nice and Chic hotel Good appearance and spothers rooms Nice basic decorations in rooms and spatious bath with minor improvements Breakfast was good and enough quantity Reasonable distance to important places Journey from Train Sration by bus a bit tricky due to all Upgrade Tram work near station

20 minute walk from the station. As soon as you get there they welcome you with a great staff. The rooms are super clean, bathrooms are updated and very spacious. Breakfast is worth it, they have a lot of food options (healthy and not so healthy). The kitchen staff was also on point, they will make you coffee right away of you just ask. We walked everywhere from and to the hotel, so location was on point. We absolutely loved it!!
