        Breakfast

        School next door, noise from 7.00am

        Very clean, spacious room for the price. Updated bathroom facilities. We chose this hotel for just one night, only because it was so close to the airport, and we had a very early morning flight.

      • Group of friends
        5.8

        It was obvious that either my room was not cleaned before I arrived or that hotel staff was using it as their smoking bathroom. The toilet was full of cigarettes and the shower had chunks of hair in it (not the drain, but the shower itself).

        The rooms are ok but in the winter the bathrooms are really cold because the heater doesn't work properly. I didn't have problems with the breakfast, but I always wake up at 7 A.M. The hotel is far away from the centre (30 minutes with the bus)

        The manager of the hotel offered me to book tickets to Uffizi Museum, but after he did he charged me 5 euros extra for each ticket. In other hotels they usually do this service for free. I was not happy about it.

      • Couple

        The room was big, furniture newish, we had no breakfast. Internet connection was weak (5th floor), free parking a big plus. Big balcony but I saw no chairs, maybe one could get them but we only slept there. Good value for money.

      • Older travelers
        9.6

        The rooms were excellent value for money - clean and quite large. The staff were very helpful and agreeable. The hotel is not in the centre of Florence but the bus is just around the corner and comes very regularly. It was only 1.20E to take the ride into the centre of Florence. This is a better idea than trying to find a park in the centre and dealing with the horrendous traffic.

        The breakfast was not so wonderful but included in the very reasonable price of the room.

      • Group of friends
        7.0

        We were looking for a hotel that was near the airport, hotel franchi is a 5 min drive from there. The hotel is a two minute walk from a bus stop with buses that pretty frequent into the center

        The neighborhood in which hotel franchi is, isn't the kind of neighborhood to walk around in at night, also during the day u can tell it isn't the best neighborhood.

      • Older travelers
        8.8

        Friendly helpful staff, clean rooms, bus ride from centre of city.

        Noisy room backing on to school and motorways in distance. Breakfast choice or lack of it varied from day to day over the weeks stay

        Helpful, personable staff and clean, comfortable accommodations

        Bad bad bad. Better stay away!!!

        Old, dirty rooms, non functioning a/c, hot steamy rooms, mosquitos in rooms, poor breakfast
