Donatello Hotel, Florence Italy

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.

Hotel location was great for a

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

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.

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.
