Lilium Hotel
Ranked #255 of 411 Hotels in Florence
Reviewed 15 August 2016 via mobile

We booked this hotel via Hotel.com. It was our first time in Florence and the price and location really called my attention. We are a family of 5 three children ages 5, 11 and 18. The hotel is literally a block away from the train station. Since our arrival we had the greatest experience from Stephano the owner who happened to be at the front desk. Hotel.com requested a different set up room and they were really friendly to set it up right. We stayed at room 101 closer to the reception and breakfast area. The room was spacious for all 5, air conditioner worked perfectly and beds were quite comfortable. The bathroom is not that spacious but you can maneuver it inside and take care of the necessary.
Breakfast in the morning was fantastic, they made us felt like home, really welcomed. The menu is good for a breakfast and I can tell you the pancakes are fantastic!
Closer to the hotel you have good small restaurants and walking distance from Mercado Centrale (best place to eat in Florence)
About 30 min walking from uffizi and about 45-1h walking distance from Michelangelo Plaza.
I will definitively recommend you this hotel, everything was safe in the hotel even when they took care of our suitcases after checkout time.

Lilium was a mere 3 minutes walk away from the train station and the staff were extremely friendly in helping to point out several areas of attraction and how to get there. The rooms were always clean and you would have all the necessary for a good night's rest.

We paid around £108 for 2 nights here in mid July and to be honest, I believe we got value for our money.
I wouldn't want to stay here for any longer as our room was quite noisy, (being next to the breakfast room and above the busy street).
The bed wasn't comfortable.
On the plus side, the room had a good wi fi signal, kettle with tea/coffee. Reasonably priced mini bar, fridge, plug in mosquito repellant, air con with remote control. Wooden shutters that blocked out all light, clean spacious and clean spacious bathroom (with a bidet-posh):-)
The receptionist (male) did seem a little off when we arrived but after seeing him a couple of times, I think we warmed to each other. The female receptionist were nice.
I was impressed when I needed to print of our boarding passes for our return flight home, they let me use the reception computer and printer at no extra charge.
The lift up to the hotel (2nd floor) is great, it's a small open old fashioned style lift but if people forgot to close the 2 doors then the lift wouldn't move so they could do with some signs in different languages asking people to close the lift doors after use. (Quite annoying if you have luggage with you). The hotel is a under 5 minutes walk from the train station which worked great for us.. Plenty of shops near by, the main city attractions less than 10 minutes walk away and easy to find. The hotel provided free Florence maps which were easy to read.
In a nutshell, if you want to stay in Florence for a couple of nights and you are on a budget then this is for you.
Hope this helps.
