Donatello Hotel Florence
4 out of 5

hotel was very conveniently located and the staff was very helpful...it has an old-world charm and the bathroom was enormous...the only criticism is that their coffee was not freshly brewed like all the other hotels/restaurants in the city.

A party of three couples...we enjoyed our stay, although there is a long list of rules and regulations to be obeyed!

One usually doesn't expect much from a 3-star hotel, but this one beat all my expectations. The staff was friendly and courteous. The room was large, nicely appointed, with a roomy bathroom, refrigerator and even an in-room safe. Breakfast was included and good. And the location was very convenient, about 4 blocks from the train station and within easy walking distance of everything, yet in a quiet spot.

We loved this hotel. It was a short walk to all of the main sights and attractions. The room was really big for a European hotel room. Our room had a skylight which was awesome! Breakfast was good and the staff were all very helpful. My only criticism is that it cost money to connect to the internet. Luckily there was a great bar nearby with free wifi. There were lots of great bars and restaurants really close to the hotel. Overall, I highly recommend this hotel! It was a great value--very high quality considering how cheap it is!

The hotel is located in a good place, but has a problem taxis are not be able to drop you off in front of the hotel. You have to walk and carry your own luggage, because the street is closed. They gave us a nice room close to the elevator and the reception, you were not be able to sleep because every time the phone ring at the reception you can hear it at the room, also y if someone talk at the elevator or when up and down you hear the elevator. The owner is a nice gentlemen, but the lady that work for him on the front desk she was not nice, at all.

Breakfast was good, close to train station and other places to visit. Clean room, good size, air conditioning felt great. Would definitely stay here again.

Hotel location was great for a couple in early 30's looking for the tourist sites, quiet back streets to stroll through, cafe's, shopping, scooter hire, and restaurants. Parking was available in a parking station two streets away (3mins walk), but was pricey (but expected for Florence) at EUR28 per night (was safely locked up with equipment still in the car). This hotel was average in most things such as facilities and service but sufficient for a comfortable stay.

Hotel is well located for Florence attractions. There is a big and calm park in front of it which is suitable for kids and elderly people. Breakfast is generous and facilities are OK. Internet wireless is expensive (I paid E$10 for 2 hs) which only works in the lobby and rooms nearby. The only problem I had with this hotel is with the air-con system. I haven't seen any hotel that we need to call the front desk to turn on and off the air-con!! One night I asked to turn on and the reception phone was always engaged so I could not turn it off. After changed and walked all the way to the front desk, we "discover" the phone was out of the hook! In the following night there was a problem with the computer and they could not turn the air-con off!!! There was no other means to turn it off so I need to half sleep the night with the wall unit blowing cold air and producing noise... I might had a bad luck, but this is a stupid system without any practical reason for it.

The Donatello is located in an area within easy walking distance to markets and restaurants. Our room was very spacious and the central heating kicked in around 5pm each day and was pleasantly comfortable. The staff were friendly and the hotel well maintained. i would stay there again.

This hotel is in a perfectlocation. You can walk to any of the major attractions, the railway and the park across the road is well lit and a meeting place for families and friends. The police station is also in the plaza so it is a safe place for solo travellers. The desk staff were friendly and went out of their way to help in any way they could. The little garden area is a nice place to relax. The Internet is not free and costly. Breakfast is contiinental and OK if you like a hit of sugar in the mornings. I would definitely recommend this hotel and would stay again if I return to Florence.

The overall service is good but its rare to charge EUR 2.5 per bag for storage of bags after we stayed in the hotel for 2 nights. This should be improved.

This was a good hotel with friendly staff. Handy for visiting the city, and not far from the raolway station.

Good location facing a park with restaurants nearby and reasonable walking distance to Santa Maria Novella station. Breakfast included but not a lot of choice - very basic - serve yourself. The reception staff were helpful with bookings and sightseeing bus tickets. Luggage storage available at a cost of 2.50 euro per bag. We had a problem with mosquitoes in our room at night. We heard them, saw them and had bites next morning to prove it, as did our friends in another room. This may have been seasonal perhaps and not isolated to this hotel alone.
