    I had a most enjoyable stay at Hotel Merlini. Only a few minutes away from the main station and a 5-10minute walk from the centre. The room and bathroom were spotlessly clean and the window, floor to ceiling openned up to rooftop views to the Duomo.The manager and staff were very helpful and friendly. Fresh continental breakfast in airy dining room. I will return in June and will use this hotel again as a base in Florence. Please note the street numbers are very random!

    No complaints at all. But please note the is no elevator and it is on the top floor.

    The staff running the hotel were nice and the cappuccino in the morning was very good as were the chocolate croissants. One of the rooms opened to a quiet courtyard with a view of the Duomo.

    The triple room was on the street and very noisy till all hours of the night. There was not much of a choice for breakfast other than sweets and carbs. Did not think the rooms were worth the charge.

    The location is good, close to train station and some of the view points. The staff there are friendly and nice. There are fresh fruit in the breakfast.

    There is no elevator in that old building. No soap provided there.

    Great, large room, good breakfast, quiet and felt safe. Would definitely stay again next time we go to Florence

    No lift but staff will assist with bringing luggage up and down stairs

  • 6.6
    Good

    Nothing but location of hotel near train station and center of town

    Nothing - it at the third floor and no lift.

  • 9.2
    Superb

    Ideally placed near to the station and within walkng distance of many of the major tourist attractions.No street noise.Bedrooms well appointed. Service excellent in all respects. So too was the light continental breakfast which offered a wide choice of food. Thoroughly recommended. We had first class service throughout and enjoyed our time there. Great place to stay.

    A possible drawback is for the elderly, who would have to cope with just over 80 shallow stairs. Here I must point out that help with baggage was immediate. Don't let this put you off.

    The room was lovely. It was pretty, very clean and very large for Florence. I also really loved the bathroom. The staff were incredibly helpful and very friendly. The hotel is excellent value and in an incredibly convenient location: 5 minutes from the main station, 5 minutes from the San Lorenzo market and 5 minutes from a large supermarket.

    The flights of stairs could have been a problem however, the staff were fantastic and very willing to help with our cases.

    Superb

    The hotel is family run ,nice and clean near train station but if you have a big luggage, be better to deposit in the train station and carry day pack to the hotel , because it stay on the 3rd floor , no lift. Breakfast is good with fresh fruit but no ham or egg, so you may buy some more on the grocery store near by.Worth to stay, I recommended.

    There' s no shampoo or soap in the room, so you have to bring your own.
