very simple (spartan, even), but really great location, staff, breakfast, internet connection, clean/comfortable/quiet room. Great bang for the buck. Awesome and super friendly staff. Definitely recommend!
The hotel Nuova Italia is excellently located in the centre of Florence, a mere 5 minutes' walk from the Santa Maria Novella …More
From the outside this hotel looked like a cheap relation but inside the quality, cleanliness and service was second to none. The quality of the room and accessability to the city is superb. We found the staff to be extremely helpful. The hotel was very quiet just what we were looking for we would recommend it to anyone looking for a stay in Florence

Staff at hotel were very welcoming and helpful. My only complaint would be that the room was at the back of the hotel, but overall hotel was in a great location close to all. Nice outdoor space on the third floor to relax and unwind after a day of touring this beautiful city.
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).
"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.
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.
I stayed at this hotel from 5 nights and it was close to all of the attractions I wanted to see. The main metro and bus station ins only 1.5 blocks away, there are restaurants and shops in the area and the staff was very nice. At one point the tv wasn't working and staff came to my room the moment I told him that the tv wasn't working and he fixed the problem. The breakfast is pretty average but it beats paying for a breakfast in such an expensive city. My bed was fixed every day but I'm not sure that they changed the sheats every day or cleaned the bathroom floor every day, although they did provide me with plenty of towels. Overall, I would recommend this hotel if you plan to stay for a short amount of time. I slept well in the bed, the only issue was that there's a restaurant across the street from the hotel that closes late.
