Excellent location. An average hotel. The staff were quite miserable at times. The quality of the breakfast was average - nothing to write home about. It is however worth it for the excellent location if you're not looking for luxury.
This small but nice hotel is literally in the middle of everything you would want to do in Florence. Duomo is stones throw away. Uffuzi Gallery is a nice ten minute walk. The streets are safe. Some tips: Florence wakes up slowly. Enjoy the free breakfast. Relax. Florence doesn't get going until 9AM. On the other side of things, Florence stores shut down at 6PM promptly. There is a dead hour before the restaurants get going. But Florence eats late. Great place near the hotel. The location lets you dump bags or refresh yourself before hitting the bricks again. Tiny elevator but that's part of the charm. Hotel Centrale makes for a great base of operations
Housed in the ancient and prestigious Palazzo Malaspina , the 3-star Centrale hotel is located in the very heart of …More
The hotel is in such a great location right next to the Domo. We arrived at 1am and the night staff couldn't do enough to help us , sorted out getting our car parked at the garage ( no parking in the centre of Florence!) told us where we could go and get a drink etc and even gave some of his own cigarettes in case we couldn't get any as it was so late !
Breakfast was great and we had a meal in the rooftop wine bar again the staff were amazing . Selected our wine , which was lovely and tried to give us back the tip we gave him at the end of the evening . Wifi in room worked without any problems , very happy with our stay , would highly recommend.
This hotel has lots of character and full of period features. The position is good being close to the railway station and the centre of Florence. If you like a sterile modern hotel then I wouldn't recommend but if you appreciate classic style while being very comfortable then this is a good choice. Staff are friendly and helpful. I will stay there again.
We were fortunate to have a massive room with super high celling & windows and real antiques.
Breakfast was well out of the ordinary.
Position: close to everything within 10-min walk in a high-level retail area.
Special rooftop terraces & bar. Enjoy!
The website images are really out of date, photo shopped or another hotel altogether. This place is worn out and that red welcoming carpet is filthy and worn out.
The hotel probably was very nice once but now it is old and needs renovation. Nothing drastic just new carpets, wallpaper, and paint.
That said the rooms are clean despite the worn out furniture and fittings. The curtain blind was stained in my first room. The chair was about to give way. But other than that the room was acceptable.
Changed room as I suspect in addition to the mosquitoes in Florence there may have been some other bugs biting at night. Second room was much better.
The low price and fantastic location (in the heart of Florence) make this hotel worthwhile.
The Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore, or Duomo for short, is one of Italy’s largest churches, and tops the list of places to visit in Florence. The impressive Gothic architecture features an ornate exterior, stained glass windows, and a cavernous interior. Two popes are buried here, and three of the buildings are on the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
