Hotel Malaspina3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Very very basic, reception staff not friendly or helpful, small room, terrible bed, lots of mosquito bites which I think came through the vents or air conditioning. Breakfast ok, badly laid out, and was really crowded around the food when busy. I would stay elsewhere next time. An ok location, a bit quieter and close to train station.
Of course there are no really quiet hotels in Firenze. But this hotel is located in a relative quiet part of Firenze. Spacious rooms with tile floors and wooden furniture. Good, standard breakfast in the cellar.
this hotel was decent. It was an old bldg. the rooms were really old, but it did the job. The breakfast area in the basement was decent. A lot of things needed to be updated. Overall, not bad. aside from the hotel, Florence is such a beautiful city. Words cannot describe it. you have to go there to see all the beauty for yourself.
Stayed here may 2017 for a long weekend 4 day break. The hotel is clean and quite basic but has all you need for your stay. It's location is just perfect in a nice park like square where you can walk to the main attractions. Really close to the train station, walking again, if you fancy visiting Pisa. Breakfast is continental but with plenty to eat and drink. Overall would stay here again.
I came across hotel Malaspina by coincidence, reading a good review. I can only confirm. The hotel is in a very central location. You may opt to explore by walk or by bus. It s all very close by. The hotel is clean, the rooms are big, bathrooms adequate. The staff is veey friendly throughout and the breakfast has a good choice for an italian hotel. We booked a triple and had a large room towards the street, which at the time jad restricted traffic. It was quiet throughout our stay. The train station is reached in 5 min by walk and so is the main bus terminus . Travelling with a young child we opted to take the Open bus after two days of exploring by walk. It took us to fieresole which was extremely enjoyable. View...walk...tranquility. we opted for the two hour stay and that was a good choice. From the trainstation we took a train to Siena,very easy . Once we travelled prior to Easter Florence was lovely and not overcrowded, the same goes for Siena.
I am extremely disappointed by this hotel.The staff protect the interests of the owner ,doesn't matter what you want.Family with a small child seated in two single rooms, which is unacceptable because we have paid for double.
We remained 4 nights at the hotel. Reception is very helpfull and provide you with city info. Rooms are nice and bathroom is ok. Wifi is working and breakfast is what is expected. Cjean hotel also in very busy period
No tea / coffee facilities. After a long trip a hot cup of tea is a need not a luxury ! Plug doesn't work so have had to unplug tv and move it into middle of room so I can use the socket to charge iPad, phone etc. only Italian channels anyway. No plug in sink. Bathroom, word used loosely, no bath, very cramped. Basic dining room chair only thing to sit on apart from bed. No view at all except of 4 walls. Requested a different room but they are full ??? 5 steps into hotel and no help from staff although it is quite obvious I have my arm in a sling ! Very unpleasant smell in reception, like drains. Nobody mentioned city tax either ! It is not a short distance from the station and in the park outside there are already numerous beggars and people dossed down for the night at 3 pm. This is the worst place I have ever stayed in and I have been to many places off the beaten track. Very basic room with all furniture scratched & worn. If you like doing your hair & make up forget it.
We visited in March and was placed in the smallest room '310'. When asked about changing rooms, we were just told that we could not. There is hardly space for 2 people to move around in the room. The shower door was loose and reported to the staff. 3 nights later, the door was still not fixed. The room was cleaned every day but not once was under the bed cleaned out. The breakfast is alright. I know it's only 3 stars but we have experienced better for 3stars in Italy thus far. The only good thing about the hotel, is that it is conveniently located and the front desk clerk, Jacopa, was a friendly guy.
Quite disappointed with our stay. On arrival we were given a room overlooking the main road. Now I realise that city hotels are noisy but it meant that we could not have a window open at any time as it was really really noisy until very late at night. No aircon outside of summer months. In asking for a different room we were shown one with a fridge that didn't work and again very noisy. The second day they did move is to a much quieter (very small) room. This was so much better noise wise apadt from the night that the people (visitors/staff?) In the next hotel decided to spend shrieking and smoking in the quadrangle until about 1am. Not the malaspina's fault admittedly. Staff are OK...functional but that's about it. Breakfast is what I would expect and always plentiful. The best thing about this hotel is the location - close to plenty of cafés, bars etc and within easy walking distance of main galleries etc. Close to train station and plenty of bus routes so great for getting around the area. NO tea/coffee making facilities in room so take your own. Visit the Central Market...go upstairs for lots of food and drink choices. Good base for visiting but basic facilities.
