We stayed at Room Mate Luca for four nights while we were in Florence. The hotel's location is approximately a 15 minute walk to the Santa Maria Novella train station, which we found to be convenient.

The room that was originally given to us was an awkward layout, with a small window and a washroom that we felt uncomfortable with (the tap came off when we went to use the sink, and the caulking in the shower was black in quite a few spots). When I called to reception, they immediately sent someone to show us another room on the same floor, to ensure that we would be happier to switch. Which we were, indeed. The second room had a big window, and although the bathroom still had some mold on the caulking in the shower, we felt like the layout was better. For a four star hotel in Europe, I felt like the bathrooms needed updating. Also, the two rooms we saw were both pretty dark, even with all the lights on, so having a good window to get more natural light made a difference. We were pleased with the hotel's response to our complaint. Every interaction with every staff member was always pleasant, throughout our stay.

The breakfast had breads (even gluten free), different types of ham and salami, cheese, an array of sweets, hot options like bacon and eggs, juices, fruit, etc. It was good, and like all the reviews suggest, the cappuccinos made by the staff were excellent.

Adriana at the front desk is a true gem, who was happy to help us book our trip to Siena and San Gimignano, and our tickets for Uffizi and the Academia. She was so much fun to talk to, genuine and kind. We listened to her recommendations and we were glad that we did.

Overall, we enjoyed our stay at Room Mate Luca. We truly loved the short walk from the hotel to the city center and all the sites. Florence is absolutely beautiful.

I love this hotel, its my 3rd or 4th time staying there and they made my stay even more wonderful than I ever expected, the amazing staff at the reception Ms. Adriana and Mr. Agustu were super friendly and helpful, they gave me full info about the city, they also gave me a very nice room overlooking this amazing public space with trees and window with blue sky or it was so enjoyable to stay inside the room. the bed was so comfy, the shower was strong and the breakfast was so good and fresh, breakfast staff was always smiling and asking if i need any help or want something specially cooked, they had a rush one day but they were helping every guest and trying to accommodate all requests, also hotel is very close to the Dumo and to my favorite restaurants Tratoria ZAZA and Allantico Vinaio which are 3 minutes walk from there, also it is close to the SMN train station, bus station is immediately at the hotel entrance.
I love Roomate Luca Florence, I spent 2 weeks travelling in 4 countries and this hotel is my top favorite hotel, they made my time in Florence unforgettably amazing.

Our family group of 9 people spent just two nights in Florence as we concluded a trip in Tuscany and this was an awesome place to call home for those days! The location is super convenient, as its right on the bus lines and just a 10-15 min walk to the great sights and train station without being on top of all the activity. Staff was so great, super helpful and Adriana was awesome in helping us check in early with all our stuff and was there each day during our stay. The rooms were pristine with everything you could ask for. The breakfast brunch was fantastic and was open till noon, so early risers could actually get two meals! We stayed in Standard Double room and was perfect for a couple, and they have Deluxe rooms as well. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a comfortable place to stay and when the day comes to return to Florence will be staying there again without question!

We (couple mid 40s) stayed in a Deluxe room for 5 nights in October 2019 (last time we travelled!). Its a very clean, attractive hotel in a great location, with main sights within easy walking distance. Breakfast here was probably the best we had in Italy. What stands out in my memory though were the staff who were extremely kind and helpful, e.g. storing our bags before check-in so we could make our 1pm entry to the Accademia. The room was a good size facing the street on front of hotel, no noise issues, and housekeeping was great. We were very happy with our experience and would have no hesitation recommending this hotel to others.

The hotel is nice and kept clean. The location is close to many museums and the famous duomo. We walked everywhere (12,000 steps a day!). The decor is bright and uplifting. The beds and bedding are comfy and I enjoyed my sleep! The blackout curtains are very good ones.

The staff goes out of their way to make sure you have a great stay. Arman was in the breakfast area every morning and would remember our requests without having to ask. Meriam was also very helpful and friendly every morning at breakfast.

The breakfast selection was varied and i enjoyed the fresh croissants every morning!

The only improvement I’d suggest is getting the shower/tubs resurfaced so they are bright white … our room had scratches that made it look dirty. The grout in showers also will benefit from a deep cleaning.

We had a wonderful 3 night stay at Room Mate Luca the first week of October. From the minute we checked in to when we checked out, the staff (Marta, Eleanora, Adriana and Elisa) were all great and extremely helpful. Our room was on the first floor, so it was easily accessible via the stairs, but there is a decent size elevator as well (not always the case as we found out in other hotels). The room was very clean, the bathroom spacious and the bed comfortable. The location of the hotel was perfect, a 10-15 minute walk to most of the major attractions and very close to the train station. Breakfast was also provided each day in an area just off the main lobby and there was plenty of variety in the foods offered. I would definitely stay here again during any future visits to Florence.

Good location, nice size room, breakfast was good, and the staff were always pleasant and helpful. Aman in the breakfast restaurant was always super helpful with breakfast needs. My only "problem" if you can really consider it a problem is that the hallway outside my room was always super dark, there were a few small lamps on the wall but they didn't provide any sort of light. I have no idea why they would keep the hallways so dark.

I booked this hotel for my parents as a Christmas present in December 2019. They were meant to travel in April 2020 but due to the pandemic their trip was delayed a number of times. Room Mate Luca staff were so helpful for the whole period, being very accommodating with date changes. My parents finally made it to Florence in September 2021 and had an amazing time at RM Luca. The hotel was brilliantly located and the staff were so nice and friendly, giving really helpful tips for local restaurants and things to see. The room was comfortable and quirky! They really enjoyed their time at RM Luca and would highly recommend it to anyone holidaying in Florence

Upon arrival at check in, all staff was welcoming and kind. Voluntarily helpful and pleasant, not like the extreme rudness in Venice and indifferene in Rome. Room was amazing, clean and spacious and had all the comforts lacking in other areas. Aman at breakfast treated us like royalty with special cappucinos and food. Breakfast here is outstanding and surpasses most restaurants here in the states. The hotel is clean and richly decorated!
