“A cold February in Florence”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 February 2012

Stayed at the Hotel Rex feb 2012, location was excellent 10 minute walk from everything. Staff friendly and polite, Hotel clean and Breakfast ok, basis continental. Rooms very much on the compact side however clean and warm. For a short stay it was excellent value for money. There are also 3 very good restaurants in the same road. Would certainly recommend this hotel.

The location is perfect: few minutes walk from Santa Maria Novella station and the center of the city. Clean and large enough room and bathroom even if some tiles were broken. Breakfast included was good enough: could be better if served with a "smile" on the face of the waitress.
WiFi connection was free but available just in the lobby.
The price was really good.

Hotel Rex was very centrally located. You can walk to the duomo in about 10 minutes. The hotel was very clean and the staff was friendly. The room was very nice. Bed was super comfortable. GOod water pressure in the shower and lots of hot water! We had some trouble with the toilet not wanting to flush but we eventually got the hang of our quirky bathroom. All in all I would recommend this hotel. Comfortable and great price!

We had a very good stay at the Hotel Rex. The location was great. Good breakfast. The staff was very helpful and responsive to requests.

We were four in a quad which was a bit small but we managed.

I would rate it a good overall value and would recommend it.

The hotel was clean and staff extremely helpful and friendly. Location was a great plus. Not a bad place at all to stay while visiting Florence. I would certainly this for the price also. The breakfast was a bit scarce and could use some improvement. Overall, I would recommend the Hotel Rex.

We always stay at the Rex when we are in Florence because it is right where it's at, in the middle of the city, in a street that is the "real" Florence with wonderful authentic restaurants and friendly Florentine people. Michelangelo's masterpieces are just round the corner and so is the fantastic food market. The hotel isn't plastic or bland but has the imprint of time which gives it its unique character. Some of the negative reviews stem from people who like alll hotels to be the same I suspect. It may not be the swishest place in town but when you stay here, you know you are in Florence.
