The hotel was in an ideal location, just minutes from the station and with easy access to the main attractions. The room was spotlessly clean and couldn't fault it. Breakfast was lovely with plenty of choice and the waitress was very friendly and helpful, as were the reception and cleaning staff too. Just a short walk up the street was...

We only had one night here, but the hotel was lovely, we had a gorgeous room with lovely en-suite. The staff were friendly and helpful. There were drinks and cakey things near to the reception area in the afternoon. We actually got tea and coffee making facilities here too! There was a well equipped fridge with not-too-expensive goods inside. The...

My spouse and I decided to stay here due to close proximity to train station, low cost rooms, and quality of hotel. Perfect location near the train station, as we were so glad we didn't have to drag our bags across town to get there! Hardy breakfast, 12 min walk from Duomo and most other sites.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Hotel Porta Faenza is situated in Via Faenza - one of the earliest medieval streets in Florence - near Porta Faenza, a gate in the fifteenth-century city walls. It was created in 1997 through the restoration and conversion of Palazzo Pegna, the old residence of a family of merchants, whose original structure has been kept intact. Porta Faenza was part of the city walls and was situated at the end of what is up till now called Via Faenza. It has been so called not for being placed towards the town in Emilia, but from the name of the Nuns from Faenza, who had their convent in the neighbourhood once. Between 1534 and 1537 Porta Faenza was joined to the Fortezza da Basso without being demolished: by watching attentively you can still distinguish its squared profile in the central bastion towards the city or its arch from the inside of the fortress. The Hotel will make you savour the warm atmosphere of the old-time Florentine houses: the tile floor, the exposed beams, the old tools scattered everywhere, together with all the comforts will make it your ideal home in the old Florence. The Hotel Porta Faenza is centrally located, very close to the main railway station (Santa Maria Novella), to Palazzo dei Congressi (the Conference Centre) and to the Fortezza da Basso. The most interesting monuments and museums in Florence are within easy walking distance. For being situated in a pedestrian precinct, the Hotel is a quiet and pleasant place, the ideal point of departure for you to discover Florence and its artistic and cultural life. ... more   less
