Wonderful location next to the tram station and 1 stop from the Santa Lucia station. safe neighborhood close to the main sights. Hotel room was clean, spacious and nice. Great lobby but hotel staff is ok.
on arrival at 3.00pm room not ready had to wait 40 minutes. first night was extremely noisy due to proximity to a theatre which hosted some kind of rock festival, the booming of the music went on til 5.00am. next day asked for a room at rear of hotel. Staff were very understanding and moved us to another room.
First time in Florence. We took the train up from Rome and arrived around 4:30pm. It is a short 6 min walk from the train station and our room was ready upon check-in. The hotel is not far from the river and the walk to downtown and all the museums and sights is not that far (15 min?).
The hotel has a nice buffet in the morning and the internet was fairly reliable. The staff was very friendly and courteous and made us feel at home.
We had a short day and loved Florence and would definitely consider staying here again because it was so convenient and relatively close to all the sights downtown.
The hotel is charming....yes that's what I meant to say. It is not all clean and marble, but done to look more authentic and old. The rooms are very big (tall ceilings) and very comfortable. The beds were nice and firm, and even three to a room was still very comfortable.
The room at Hotel Kraft is tiny for 2 people, but it was very comfortable and clean. That's to be expected. The breakfast is awesome as compared to other European hotels. Plenty of variety, and the coffee is out of this world. The hotel is in a great location with walking distance to everything, even the train station (10-15 min.) also there is an excellent restaurant right around the corner.
Very helpful staff. Very good choice at breakfast, catered for my Gluton free needs very well. Free drinks from tea and coffee to cold fruity drinks and nibbles on bar at lounge on ground floor, nice touch after a hot day out.
Santa Maria Novella Station is the main train station in Florence, with high-speed rail connections to Rome and Bologna. The station is in central Florence, situated near local landmarks like the Arno River, Santa Maria Novella, and Giardini della Fortezza.
