Greetings from Firenze!
Today began in Venice and ended in Florence. After one last little breakfast outside in Venice, we hopped onto a bus headed to Florence. We drove through magnificent countryside and mountains. We passed little villas and fields of sunflowers, corn, rice, etc, and by 12:00pm we were in Florence. It is nothing like I …
... convent. There are several small chapels off to the side of the main alter (which is magnificent) They are truly beautiful, and once again, absolutly lovely stained glass windows and beautiful art work on the ceilings. I remember going to church when I was young and being bored out of my mind. I wonder if the ceilings of churches here are painted so when patrons (or their children) are bored and they start tuning out and looking around they have something sacred to ...
... structure. We hope we get time to see inside. Onward we go through the streets and come across a market with lots of leather for sale with Bali-like sales people trying to get you in. Not so appealing for us so on we go to an irish looking bar called The Fish Pub in Piazzo del Mercante Centrale with a wonderful Guatemalan owner called Freddie who gave us happy hour an hour early! Unfortunately Gout Boy decided to make an appearance on the trip ...

With this being the half way point of the tour, it's also time to give the Fiats a chance to catch their breath. The engines of these little jewels are air cooled, so we open the engine compartment lids to allow the engines to release some heat.
If vineyards are the most prevalent feature of the landscape in ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Corona D'Italia Florence
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.
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!
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.
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.
