We've chosen this hotel as part of our road trip, for which we needed a parking space - thus staying in the city center wasn't really an option. The hotel is very nice, the staff is very helpful, room with good size and very comfortable. However, its around 4km from city center which translates to a good 10-15 euro taxi drive.
Wonderful service and clean/nicely appointed rooms. We stayed as we had an early flight out the next day. Great, full breakfast available, including eggs and bacon, pastries etc.
Also, there was a fabulous Trattoria a few blocks away, with one of the best meals we had in Florence. If you are planning to see the sites in Florence, it is about a 20 minute taxi ride.
The hotel met our needs perfectly. We needed a hotel in close proximity to the Airport in Florence. The staff was very cordial and friendly and tried their best to help us in any way. The young lady at the front desk, Elena, was especially helpful in assisting us, printing out our boarding passes and giving us directions to the airport and nearby restaurants. The early a..m. continental breakfast was very nice, and we felt very comfortable leaving our luggage in the car overnight because of the secure parking. We would stay there again!
"PERFECT HOTEL for 3 LADIES, we felt like Divas :)"
8-12 August 2014. Three ladies found 3-Star Diva Hotel to be a VERY pleasant surprise given the PRICE (at 1/2 or less vs town rates, I expected it to be a crummy old inn). Hotel & room facilities complete, quite new, comfortable & very CLEAN. Very ACCESSIBLE location owing to Bus22 terminal a short walk away (takes you to terminal near IL DUOMO in 20 mins, EU1.20 bus tickets sold at reception). FANTASTIC buffet breakfast with healthy choices & food for all tastes it's more of a brunch, ITALIAN coffee maker lets you refill drinks of your choice. 5-star quality service from STAFF who speak good English & make you feel at home (Simone welcomed us warmly giving maps & info, Stefania & Luca helped with our booking & train schedules, 10pm Rinaldo kindly let us use their plates and eat at the dining hall after heating up a pasta dinner he stored for us in the fridge the night before). FREE WIFI if you use Facebook & "like" them (which we do). FREE luggage storage. FREE safety deposit with receipt (passports & cash). NO CHARGE to borrow adaptor & hair dryer. Yes, for bigger people perhaps the lift is too small, as is the shower cubicle, but perfect for us. Yes, we heard the upper room's shower when in the bathroom, but no, we didn't hear street noises owing to airtight door-type windows nor noise from rooms. No problem going home at midnight, safe residential neighborhood with a lovely old church. From train station EU20 by cab or EU1.20 by bus (flat rate to any part of town).GRAZIE!
The hotel service including breakfast and location was excellent. The staff at the desk were very accomodating and they went out of their way to help. Off street parking was great and location proximity to a direct bus line to downtown was very easy. It was a quiet, peaceful room and we enjoyed our stay.
We enjoy staying away from the busy centre so a pleasant 50-60min walk with a buggy and little one in tow was great to exercise (and more importantly allow space for delicious Italian food!) It's also a way to discover small untapped resources such as bakeries and cafes enroute. The hotel was clean, spacious and great for our family of 3 with a 2 year old child. Staff were friendly and rooms were cleaned well. Bathroom did not have a bath but shower was good and all facilities were suitable especially having own kitchen with cooker / oven / dishwasher. A microwave would be a good addition if possible. Great place to get away from the city and relax with plenty of space unlike what we saw with regards to the smaller 'cosy' hotels in town. Would recommend making sure windows are closed at night due to mosquitoes as I was thoroughly bitten but learnt from this and closed the windows and air-con in rooms was very good. All in all a very pleasant stay and we would gladly recommend to friends and family and return again in the future.
"affordable, right next to the bus stop for center!"
Great experience due to the kindly staff. I gave 4 star for the slow internet, which I needed to do online school work. It was really easy to get downtown, if you have any questions the staff is ready to help in french or english etc
