    the location of the Hotel was not perfect (nobody is perfect), but by taking a tram it takes around 20 minutes for going to city center. And the quality of breakfast could be better (according to Italian standards!)

    The staff were very kind and the room was clean.

    At check in we were informed about their breakfast buffet and we were offered to add it to our stay. If you are asked the same, take it. It was appetizing, convenient, and well worth the money. We were told about the restaurant next door and it was excellent. We ate their our entire stay and not because of convenience. We even waited to eat just so we could eat there, it was magnificent!

    Location a bit out of city centre and required transport but on bus routes with some walking needed. Good navigation required from tourists. Keep googlemaps at hand with enough battery life.! Room facilities are basic but very clean. Wifi did not always work in room.

    The staff were very friendly and helpful and did their best to make the stay in this hotel recommendable. Helped with tour bookings and other transport. The service in the breakfast breakfast room was so warm and heartly and we even got free pastries with check out, as we could not have breakfast. We had to catch an early train. We felt as local residents in this hotel. Thank you to the staff.

    The breakfast area is extremely small. As you can imagine if half the hotel descended for breakfast it’s very cramped. The breakfast could do with an improvement as the variety was lacking. If you have a sweet tooth this could nevertheless be paradise for you. The turn around time for cleaning tables was poor as it was only one person working.

    Value for money if you’re looking for a short stay. It’s vicinity to the city means you don’t have to pay city prices but just jump on a 5 min bus ride into town. The staff in general were ever so nice and willing to help with anything.

    Hotel Careggi was a fantastic little spot just outside the city center. Rooms were simple, but had strong AC, hot showers and a fantastic morning breakfast. There was also a solid restaurant downstairs that was open late. Something just felt at home about the place, and I loved being there. There is a bus directly across the street which takes you into central Florence in less than 10 minutes, otherwise I never waited more than 5 minutes when the front desk called a taxi for me. Highly recommended!

    the staff were very unhelpful , the hotel is too far from the centre. the lock on my my room was very difficult to open , there was a knack to it, but my stay was short so i never got the hang of it , so sometimes it took me about 10 minutes to open the door,the toilet flush was really fustrating i had to push the flush button about 15times before it wouls flush. the room was on a main road , it was very noisey so no sleep , they did give me another room the next day, and their attitude was , as though they were doing me a big favour ,even though i paid £54 per night what a rip off,

    the bed was very uncomfortable

    a bit further from the city center (approx 20 min bus ride- depending on traffic). Close to Firenze Rifredi train station (10 min walking) so you can actually take local trains to Siena and Bologna from there not the main station. Building and rooms a bit old fashioned.

    Friendly staff, very decent breakfasts, clean rooms and bathroom, good WiFi. Very nice local restaurant at the corner of the same building -good prices - delicious food.

    There was an extra charge for breakfast. So I ate out. If it were cold out, it would have been a problem, There weren't any blankets on the bed, only a quilt. It was okay though since the weather was not too cold.

    It was quiet. The location was a little remote but the bus ride was not bad, once I figured out which bus to take. You have to be very specific leaving from the train station. The stop is across the street from the station. I enjoyed it though as it gave me a chance to experience life like a local. You wouldn't get that staying closer to the attractions.

    Breakfast was adaquate but no means the best we have had in Itay. Our original room suffered from cooking smells from the nearby restaraunts, we were moved to a different room imediately and without fuss. New room OK but as they warned us the bathroom was a bit small.

    Staff were helpful and friendly. Reasonable access to the centre of Florence via taxi a one way trip costing between 10 and 18 euros (between 4 of us) depending on the level of traffic and impact of extensive roadworks on traffic flow. Nearby Off-Road parking with security barrier (at extra cost). Also able to stop directly outside hotel to unload/load luggage.
