Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Corona D'Italia Florence
Perfect location-Loved this hotel
We stayed here 3 nights in September 2005 and just loved this hotel. For the money it was the best value we had in Italy. First, it is in a great location-just a 5 minute walk from the train station and within walking distance of most of the center city sights. It is also located next to the Central Market which is a must for any serious shoppers going to Florence. We had a standard double room which was gigantic with a very large bathroom. The room was spotless and the maid service was excellent. Our room faced an inner courtyard so there was absolutely no street noise. The breakfast area was very nice and the breakfast buffet was your typical Eurpoean fare. The front desk staff was vey friendly and helpful with all speaking very good English.
There is a great little place for Tuscan home cooking a few blocks away (Trattoria la Burrasca). It is filled with locals and Rick Steves' readers. The wine is cheap and the steak is excellent. Overall I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Florence.
Not bad, skip breakfast
Stayed here for one night when the hotel I booked didn't honour a pre-paid reservation. The room was clean with a large bathroom. However, you may want to skip the breakfast. The bread was very stale - most tables had abandoned bread rolls on them when the guests left.
Also the staff couldn't find the "password" to use the wireless Internet at the hotel, and they charged for phone calls which were free from other hotels in Italy.
The location's not bad, and the rooms claim to be soundproofed. They do appear to be soundproofed from road noise, but other rooms showers and toilets were very audible from my room.
We stayed at the Hotel Corona over Christmas and were very pleased. It was close to the station and just round the corner from the Duomo and the Mercato Nuovo (...where, by the way, they have the best priced silk ties you will ever find!). The room was very quiet - there was very little street noise even though it was on a busy road. The room was lovely, very spacious and clean, with a large bath. The staff were helpful, and the buffet breakfast excellent. This is a nice way to splurge if you are travelling on a budget. We had a great stay!
Great Choice for Florence
For a 3-star hotel, my wife and I rated this hotel as very good to excellent. It was definitely the best 3-star (and better than a lot of 4-star european hotels) we stayed at in Italy. Service was very good and the breakfast was superior to that of other hotels.
The room was huge for European standards. The bathroom and shower/tub (yes both) were comparable to US sizes, which is rare.
It is under 5 minutes to the Termini so if you are visiting various cities (as we did) it was very convenient. You can walk everywhere (sights, shopping, etc.) from this location in 10-15 minutes. While it is on crowded Via Nazionale, their soundproof windows are VERY effective. Plenty of great restaurants in the vicinity as well. Also, if you like shopping, the major street market is right around the corner.
We would definitely stay here again. We don't spend much time in the hotel as we base most of our choices on location. However, this hotel had the best of both worlds!
Well, it was a group tour to Italy. I loved staying in Florence and this hotel made it better. It wasa different expereince just because it was away from home. Very clean and good service. Reasonable pricing as well.
Nice hotel, great breakfast, tiny room
My husband and I stayed at the Corona d'italia as part of a group. It is well located. Clean and comfortable rooms but ours was very small. We were there for five nights and got used to it but there was no place to put our clothes so we had to live out of our suitcases. At least our room was in the back and quiet. The rooms in front, on the street, are very noisy and the traffic on that street continues day and night. The public areas are large, clean and lovely. The breakfast is great and the staff was helpful.
Stayed for a week in late May 04 attending a meeting. A short easy walk to major museums, cathedral, etc. Nice room, mini-fridge. Breakfast buffet is NOT worth the price of 12 Euros, lots of better/cheaper places within a block. Good lighting, amenities, etc. Our room at the back was very quiet--ask for that location. Elevators a bit slow. Don't pay the rack rate--get an internet deal! Ciao!
Clean, Comfortable, Quiet Hotel
Corona D'Italia was a clean, comfortable, quiet hotel located very convenient to the train station and good restaurants. Staff was extremely accomodating, breakfast was an added plus. Most area attractions were within an easy walking distance from the hotel. Rooms were basic, bathroom somewhat small but all VERY clean.
Corona Di Italia AOK
3-Star hotel. Location PERFECT. Two blocks from train station. Very little, if any, street noise in room. Breakfast average but breakfast room personnel very professional. However, when Matire d' on day off, breakfast service/food/availability/seating fell apart. Front desk pesonnel abrupt as opposed to friendly. Room fine and clean. Bathroom small but nice. Refrigerator and Safe in room. CNN but no sound so no Enlish language TV. We were told management had not approved it. Exccept for no English-speaking television, we would stay there again.

... apartment (without a valid ticket because this time it was ok because we were with them). At first it sounded like they wanted us to split up, one stay at the stop with a inspector while to other went back for money with the other inspector. Cory told them they can go to hell that I wasn't going anywhere with them, without him. We reached the apartment and I ran upstairs to grab €50 to cover the other fine. We weren't the only ones fined, a lady on the bus back to ...
... the best thing was the view that the fort gave. its on a hill above the city so you could see the entire city of Florence! so beautiful! the fort was one for the Medici family as an escape from the city, and Kim Kardasian did have her wedding here. on the walk back to the city API treated us to gelato! yummy! i then got some more authentic italian pizza with a few friends, and went back to their apartment to plan some more ...
Buon giorno (Good morning) Today we are in gorgeous Florence & Pisa (Tuscany). Tuscany is covered with vineyards & olive trees. We had a walking tour of Florence, through the little streets & around the town. Amazing shopping. One of the cobblestone streets had 34 jewellery shops. Lots of leather bag shops too. The statue of David was pretty impressive! By Michelangelo again. He was ...
... but it was just wonderful. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brancacci_ Chapel
We then made the train ride back to Cortona and after a freshen up and a dry out we dressed for dinner, and our chef johnathon, his wife Sarah and lizzy took us to a wonderful restaurant called nessun Dorma, in Cortona. The restaurant is over a few floors, and we ate way down in the dungeon. Was fabulous and alot of fun, as we laughed and shared stories, great day and night,
... to walk back I stop at Il Duomo and decide to go inside. Might as well make the most of my little detour. ;-) It is lovely and large inside. Not as ornate as the Spanish churches on the interior, but the exterior is the real eye catcher anyway. As Spanish churches have their most decorated and ornately portrayed Saints, The Holy Mother and our Savior Jesus Christ inside their catedrals, the Italian cattedrales are more Greek Roman in nature with the amazing architecture and ...
