Staff location Old world Abiance Comfortable Affordable
We liked everything NO NEGETIVES!!!
I stayed a few doors down from Hotel Desiree 33 years ago. I was hoping for something with the same charm yet comfort, now traveling with my adult daughter. It was exactly what I envisioned. It was perfect!
This hotel is located on the 2nd floor of a building. It's accessible by a fairly ancient lift. Staff was very nice and friendly. Breakfast spread was good. Room was large but the beds were very squeaky. The minute someone sleeping next to you turn,it'll squeak so loud so it's very disturbing for the person sleeping next to you. Don't expect any facility except breakfast. Wifi wasn't working even though it indicate on your phone you're connected. Upon reporting this matter, the owner tried to rectify the problem. On the whole,it's good value for money given its convenient location.
My siblings and I stayed here just one night to get extra time in Florence and we thought it was great! Air conditioning was blasting, shower was big enough for one, linens were clean, breakfast was great. The staff was very friendly and helpful as well. The hotel interior was one of the nicest ones I have stayed in while in Italy, it's old fashioned style but maintained and very clean. One block over from the train station / leather market too!
When I locked my iPhone the wifi would disconnect and I'd have to re-enter my pass code. Minor inconvience, didn't bother me at all.
Breakfast was very good value for 5 Euro The afternoon tea the did for us was great. The wet room to freshen up before leaving for our flight great addition
Florence mosquito who seem to get in the room with 4 layers of glass and shutters
It was very cute and we really loved the decor. The room was clean and comfortable. Staff was friendly and helpful.
Smelled like moth balls and the breakfast was only ok.
The hotel is a two minutes walk from the station -- very convenient.
Sound isolation of the room could be better. Also, you will need tomunplug lamps to charge all you electronics: installing more sockets is necessary.
Just around the corner from the train station and nearby to everything Breakfast was decent Nice helpful staff
Hotel was a bit hard to find at first - they need to give better directions Room was a bit cramped Got bitten by flees during the night
Beautiful atmosphere, staff & decor.
Bed was very, very hard. Only concern.
We loved this hotel. It was close to the train station but an easy walk to the sights. The hotel was a fabulous old building but had a lift and the staff were the friendliest we have come across. The room was huge and everything worked!!!
Nothing it was the best we have used and would go again
The staff were very friendly and helpful.
The breakfast was very nice. Employees kept smile and provided a good service.
We chose a room with 5 persons. The room was too small to have enough space to put our luggages.
Fantastic stay and excellent facility
We arrived on a night train, so we were pretty tired. The hotel was close, easy to find, and had a great breakfast.
The people in the hotel! Their service is really good as per mentioned by other travelers in the reviews! Also, I love the shower!! This is the only place in Europe I travelled which I had no worries on running out hot water. And the toilet is very clean. Thumbs up to Desiree housekeeper!
Probably the size of the room. But I guess is considered quite reasonable compared to other budget hotels in Europe. And there is a lot of Mosquitos in the room. I guess that's common in Italy?
We asked for a double bed but it was two seperated beds that the hotel put together
Very nice and helpful staff. Good location near the train station but very quiet. Walk distance everywhere. Clean and big room
Location to Stanta Maria Novella Station and for all attractions of this fantastic City.this hotel was Perfect for all our needs , Breakfast good and a good variety,staff very helpful for any needs you require. Our room/Shower was sufficient for our needs. we had 4 days in this Hotel and will stay here again when we return.
Location was perfect. Very close to the train station and restruants. Hotel personnel were extremely helpful and nice. Breakfast was excellent.
The room (135) we stayed in had a small shower that it made it difficult for me and my toddler to bath in.
Close to train station. Quiet area. Lift (no stairs). New bathroom. Good breakfast.
Beds were a little hard. TV not very good.
- Good Breakfast - 5 mins walk to train station - Staff is nice and helpful
