Hotel La Fortezza

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Hi this is a really good hotel service etc, however arrived on the hottest day of the year after a long day needed to cool down it was a warm room, couldn’t get the air con to work, and usually this is because it is controlled from reception ie allowed to be on or off. However first time I have been told. O can’t switch it on as it’s against the law!!!! We were only there for a few days so couldn’t be bothered to argue.

Nice staff, clean room and really good breakfast. We enjoyed it! We had a room in the basement. It was a bit dark, but it was okay, and I would guess it is fine when visiting during hot summer days. We slept well in the beds.

Happy to stay here, rooms clean and basic, lovely staff very helpful, had a great choice of breakfast. Short walk to train station and main square. Would recommend this hotel to anyone who enjoys a city break.

Really enjoyed our stay at the Hotel La Fortezza. The staff were really helpful and friendly. Clean big beautiful rooms! Great choice of breakfast. In walking distance to the Centre of Florence. Loved our stay and would definitely return on next visit.

I stayed here with a friend because the entrance lobby was beautiful, the price was reasonable and included breakfast, and while it was not in the old town, it was only a mile away, and was close to the train station. I didn’t mind the 20 minute walk into old town as you got to see a bit more of Florence than you would if you spent your whole trip there, and it was still an interesting walk. The best thing about this hotel was the room size and the beautiful breakfast choices on offer!

Beautiful hotel, friendly helpful reception staff, Raefelle even helped us with dinner reservations. Great guy!!! Clean big beautiful rooms! Great breakfast. Easy to get to the Centre of Florence. Love our stay!

This hotel was clean, good free breakfast and friendly staff. The only negative is that the bed was not very comfortable. However, it didn’t stop us from sleeping after our long days of sightseeing. We made Florence our hub and did day trips to Venice and Tuscan region. 10 min from train and short walk to delicious restaurants.

Average hotel ...good value for money. Decor in the rooms needs updating - reception and breakfast staff extremely helpful, accommodating and friendly. Location good - out of the way but that's what we like - away from the hustle and bustle of what is a very busy city! Reception recommended La Clarinette to eat which is close by - fantastic food and service and extremely reasonable. The only thing that let La Fortezza down in my opinion was the housekeeping...however saying that the rooms were VERY clean and towels changed regularly.

I loved being there! It was only for a few days and of course I spent the days out but breakfast was so good (they have a pancake machine, I'll never forget that) and beds were really comfortable! The staff is super nice too!

Stayed with friends for 4 nights. This hotel is so comfortable and friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them. The breakfast is great with everything you need, including a real honeycomb and a pancake maker. Cappuccino on request is delicious. Superb value for money and a great stay. It is a 10 minute walk away from the centre. The city is completing a new tramway and so some pedestrian crossings close to the hotel are fenced off making the walk to the centre a little further, but it really has no effect on the stay. We would definitely stay there again. Highly Recommended.
