家族で4泊しました。場所はとても便利なところにあり、5分か10分ほど歩けば、革製品やお土産を売っている露店マーケット、そしてシティマーケット(2階にフードコートがあります)に行けます。そこから5分も歩かないうちにドゥオーモもあります。ホテルのすぐそばにもコインランドリーがあって助かりました。ホテル入り口にATMマシーンもあって現金引き出しに便利でした。部屋は通りに面していたので、夜も少し騒がしい感じがしました。中庭の部屋なら静かなようです。ちょうど春休みなので、金穀からの高校生の修学旅行生が宿泊していました。朝食は7時半からでしたが、8時頃いくと学生でいっぱいで、食べ物もあまり残っていませんでした。ボタンを押すとジュースやとコーヒーが出てくる機械があります。あと甘いペストリーやクロワッサン、ハムとチーズ、キウィフルーツなどがありました。ワイファイは部屋の中では使えず、フロント近くのワイファイゾーンでインターネットをしました。フロントの方々も親切でした。 We stayed 4 nights. The location was great: Within 5 to 10 minutes walk, there was outside market which sold the leather products and some souvenirs, the city market (it had a food court at 2nd fl), and you can see the Duomo just there from the market. There is a coin-operated laundry store near the hotel and it...

Very good location - 10-15min away from everything. The hotel itself is not the best - it's a bit shabby but there are clean sheets and towels everyday. Breakfast quality could be better as well but you can compromise if you are on a budget

I loved this hotel! It's wonderful! Location (very short walk from Duomo, Uffizi, Galleria dell'Academia), rooms, staff, the view from room... I loved it. The breakfast on the terrace, with doves and cats on the roof. the view from our room was spectacular: the Duomo in the background! Loved it, loved it, loved it!

This is a relatively small hotel located at about five-minute walk from the tourist district and at about ten-minute walk from the Florence Conference Center. The entrance to the hotel is on a quiet side street, the hotel lobby is open 24 hours and is staffed with nice and helpful attendants. Very good and hearty breakfast kept me going for...

This trip was a present for a friend and I can't tell you how disgusted I am. Although the hotel is only a 10 minute walk from the train station and central to everything, the street outside is filthy and there are several a trash bins right by the entrance door. Our room on the first floor was little bigger...

Hotel Basilea was by far the worst hotel we've ever stayed. We did not have heating on the first night of our staying (in December) and the only window of the room couldn't be entirely closed. The breakfast was poor and on the second morning they gave us expired ham (it smelled and tasted bad). On the third evening, the...

This was the most horrible hotel where i've ever stayed. Dead bugs on the wall, dirt everywhere. No wifi, just in the lobby. We couldn't planned our day from out room. We had to go to the lobby, and sit there in out pajamas. Our window was broken, the shower was very tiny, and stinky. So the room was disgusting,...

We stayed here last summer and the hotel overall was good. It's an older hotel that could use some renovations, but hey, it's Europe you are staying in a city with so much history. The front desk was very helpful, they gave us suggestions for dining and coupons. The beds and rooms aren't luxurious, but I always got a good...
