UNA Hotel Vittoria4.0 out of 5.0

I visit Florence frequently and I always stay here for one night. It's a 15 walk across the Arno to the center of town but it's great to be away from the tourist area. An excellent Indian restaurant is a few blocks away, nail salon, hair salon and the main park is five minutes away. I love the room with the built in red laser lights. The lobby bar is complete with butt seats and futuristic chairs. Great price too.
Set back from the street the hotel is a little oasis of contemporary goodness. The layout was funky, comfortable and clean. We opened the windows to let the sunshine in and were delighted to see residential properties with people tending their gardens and going about their everyday lives. To me part of the essence of touring a new country. It took us 30 minutes to walk into Florence, maybe we were slow or just taking time to take it all in. The restaurant staff were lovely and obliging and the breakfast was amazing. We found all the staff at the Una friendly and helpful. Part of an Insight Tour.
The hotel is very original and was lovely in many ways, but the rooms do need updating a bit. Our bathroom, for example, had a lot of missing tiles, the sink wouldn't drain properly and the toilet flushed continuously for the entire stay. Also the room layout is perhaps a bit too unusual for some - while having a shower out in the open wasn't a problem for us as a couple, I can't imagine staying here with a friend or anyone else would be possible as there is so little privacy. Another issue we had is that to use the car park (which only has around 10 spaces) costs an additional €20 a day (not per night). So for a 4 night stay, this cost us an additional €100 on top of our bill, which seems very expensive. Overall, though, the hotel is very nice - breakfast was good and the staff were friendly. The reception area is also very welcoming. I would probably stay again because the hotel itself was quite reasonably priced, but I do think the rooms need updating and the car park prices need adjusting.
About 15 minutes walk from the hustle and bustle of Florence, this hotel is situated in a cool neighbourhood with many eateries. There is also a bus that takes you most of the way to centre. There is a convenient underground car-park at 20 euros a day (don't forget you will need to pay city tax too). Breakfast was good although confusingly there were some aspects that came at an additional cost such as freshly squeezed juice or an omelette. The hotel is very stylish and comfortable but the rooms are compact which wasn't an issue for us as we only stayed 3 nights and reminds me of hotels like Citizen M which I am very fond of. Wifi was so-so. Staff were friendly. Would absolutely recommend for a short stay in Florence.
Position: quite good, 20 minutes walk to Ponte Vecchio Parking: private parking in the yard or garage, 20€/day Room: clean, spacious, interesting design of the furniture and walls, no balcony (Equip: safe, TV, aircon, minibar, free WiFi-fast) Breakfast: very good Staff: friendly, helpful ( English-perfect) Overall: excellent hotel, about 2km to the center (use of the bus is recommended) Tip for Florence: check websites of famous attractions and book you time slot in advance prior to your visit (otherwise there is no chance to get in)
Driving a Tesla to a wedding in Italy so planned tour around hotels with super chargers. Have read previous comments complaining but we really enjoyed this quirky hotel with black corridors, doors with old master style paintings, rooms with LED lights in walls etc. Bathroom/shower has big glass window next to hallway of room that bedroom door opens onto so you have to hope your do not disturb sign works! 😳. Well stocked bar and more art work and bottom shaped seats! As mentioned there are 2 Tesla chargers in underground car park but when we arrived a Mercedes driver had decided to park in one of them and angled so that it was hard to manoeuvre into the 2nd one. Luckily he'd gone the next day so could recharge. Very helpful porter who also seemed to be the gardener, cleaner and general factotum. Had dinner and breakfast in dining room, surrounded by TVs showing MTV but songs played didn't seem to match what was showing! Lovely waitress who gave us lots of info on places to visit. Walked into Florence on very hot day so got taxi back. All taxis seem to be electric like Leaf. Visited Uffizi gallery. Four flights of stone stairs, practically needed oxygen when I reached the top! Didn't notice a lift but maybe we just missed it, would suggest investigating this if you don't fancy the climb! Great panini and ice cream place near Duomo, had biggest ice cream I've ever had 🍦. Would fully recommend this hotel.
First the positive - the staff are friendly and professional. The breakfast was as good as anywhere else we stayed (17 day Trafalgar Tour). Negatives -The rooms (we looked at others rooms in our group). Rooms very small with poor layout for the available space. Bathroom fittings are purple! Hideous! The outer wall of the shower is glass and anyone showering will be visible to the hallway if another person opened the door. The glass doesn't condense unless the water is very hot, I only had tepid showers and felt very exposed while showering. The bed is raised surrounded by deep fuchsia velvet type walls inlaid with led lights. One whole wall is mirrored. With only a very small window the dark decor does nothing to make the rooms feel larger and lighter. The whole package screamed 'brothel' and not one person in our group of 30 disagreed. Chairs in the bar shaped like backsides did nothing to improve our impressions, it was just plain funny! Please do your hotel a favour and change the layout and the decor!
We spend two weeks in Italy and this had to be the best Hotel that we stayed within the Hundred bucks a Day range!! The hotel is very modernly designed. Rooms were perfect for 2 people and the inclusive breakfast was more than adequete. The hotel is a fifteen minute walk to the main city area but there are buses which one can avail right outside the hotel. Personally for us, the service was the best we received in Italy. Matteo at check in was absolutely gracious and all the girls and Said at the restaurant were helpful and hospitable. We stayed here for 4 days and every person we encountered wished us with a smile and answered to every query we had with patience and grace. Definitely Recommended.
I would have liked to give this hotel a higher rating but I have to be fair to other travelers. Our bedroom was small and poorly designed which made it feel even smaller. A "bar" at the foot of the bed has me still shaking my head. No extractor fan in the crazily designed bathroom added to the overall rating of 3 star which could easily be a 2 start. Only room to open one suitcase so the second one sat on the "bar". The bedroom would be suitable for a single person with limited needs. Sorry but I can't recommend this hotel.
This is a great hotel, very clean and modern on the inside and very traditional on the outside, friendly staff, great breakfast, well located, lovely patio area outside which was lovely to sit on in the evening and have a drink, would definitely stay here again
