Ten minutes from the Duomo on a narrow street that bends ever so slightly and reveals new surprises every few feet, the Hotel Vasari is the perfect spot from which to explore Florence. The building dates from the late 1500s and in the late nineteenth century served as the French Embassy. The public rooms on the street level still reflect the ambiance of that golden era as does a large sitting room on the first floor. The old tile for in the breakfast room is very nearly a work of art in itself. Guess rooms, a bit small as is always the case in older European hotels, are a bit small, but are tastefully done. Doors to the guest rooms are decorated with figures from classic paintings--a nice touch.
While you're in the neighborhood, don't miss the chance fir a meal at the Trattoria Nerone on the street that connects the Hotel Vasari with the duomo (on your right as you walk toward the cathedral).
Very close to train station and central to most sights. Easy to walk everywhere and very close to market for shopping.
Our internet access was fine from our room on first floor. Usually available in lobby only.

The location was excellent - 5 minutes from the train station. Staff was helpful and we had a wonderful stay. We had a family of 5 and the room worked great. Also the breakfast was really good. Only minor drawback was the internet service was slow/not reliable.
"Small, friendly hotel with a convenient location"
Very friendly and helpful staff on reception, who responded very efficiently with minor issues and questions. Room fairly small but very comfortable and more than adequate. Sky TV was a good feature as was the free wifi.
We were only at the hotel one evening but it was exactly what we needed. The room was clean, modern, air conditioned and comfortable. Bathroom was nice sized and functional. Location was in walking distance where we were coming from. Friendly and helpful young man at front desk.

"Nice family run hotel, very close to train station"
Close to everything, very central. Only problem was you had to climb three floors of stairs to get to it. Staff were very friendly. Breakfast was very good. We would stay again, but not for anyone with mobility problems.
