“Excellent Hotel for Florence”
Reviewed 23 April 2012

The Hotel City is located only 200 yards from the train station, yet seems miles away! It is just down the street from the San Lorenzo market and the covered Mercado Centrale. In 5 minutes walking, you are at the Duomo and Piazza di Sigorno. A PERFECT location!!!! Also, the hotel is spotless with wonderful and helpful staff. Breakfast is delicious! A truly great find!!

Room Tip: All rooms are soundproofed and wonderful!

My wife and I stayed here for two nights and had a great time. We arrived really early after catching the train from Venice and the staff had a room ready for us. The hotel is in a handy location for walking around the city and conveniently located near the train station. The complimentary breakfast was great and the staff were excellent. The only down side was the street noise from people walking home late on Friday night but we did not notice this on the Thursday night. The restaurants around the hotel are excellent.

What a great hotel this is RIGHT in the centre - close to the cathedral and all the sites , great restaurants and a wonderful market and yet so so peaceful. The rooms are spotless, the staff friendly and the breakfasts to die for.
We so enjoyed our short stay in Florence at this small and beautiful hotel. We flew to Pisa, took the bus to Florence and found the hotel very easily.
Thanks again for a great stay.

Hotel City was central to a family wedding. There were 12 family members and others who stayed there for my daughter's wedding at La Sala Rosa. We were within walking distance of everything. The staff was very helpful in arranging taxis, reservations, recommendations and almost anything else we needed during the stay. I cannot say thank you enough times. It was a wonderful trip, a wonderful hotel and we will be back to see the sites we did not get to.

Room Tip: I think everyone in our party was satisfied. Family with 2 children. Older parents. Young people...

Our family of three adults and one teenager really liked this hotel. The quad room was large and we didn't feel crowded. Great location. Everything was in walking distance. Wonderful staff at the front desk. Highly recommend this hotel. When we go back to Florence we plan to stay here again.

Hotel City is a cozy hotel near the Santa Maria Novella church, about a 5 minute walk from the Stazione di Santa Maria Novella. My sister, mom & I stayed in a triple room for 2 nights during November. The room was very clean and quiet. It was about a 10 minute walk from all the main sights in Florence. The hotel staff was incredibly kind and made recommendations for restaurants and trains. The continental breakfast was also wonderful and had a great variety. All in all we had a wonderful stay!!

The hotel is well located in Florence -- about 5 minutes from the central train station, and within walking distance to the main churches and museums. The extensive market is one block away and there are numerous good restaurants within a couple of blocks. The hotel has been updated, with nicely done modern bathrooms, flat screen televisions, reliable free wi-fi internet throughout. The day clerk on the front desk was very helpful with suggestions to our questions. And the breakfast, while continental, had lots of choice.

A small problem was the modern shower leaked a bit of water onto the floor every time we used it. It happens. So we mopped it up and reported it - hopefully this was limited to our suite and is now fixed.
