TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel de La Ville Florence
Service was terrible, accommodations uncomfortable, and hidden charges for everything. Internet was 11Euro/day, we had to argue with the barkeep to get a glass of ice for an injury. All around bad experience.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel de La Ville Florence
Good boutique hotel, very helpful staff
We stayed at the De La Ville for three nights in September. Although relatively expensive (for us) it was good value for money in terms of the location and room and breakfast standard. Having since heard horror stories from others about hotels in Florence we cannot recommend the De La Ville too highly!
Great hotel. Super value. Excellent location.
This is a great hotel. The location is excellent. Just a few minute walk to the main tourist attractions. The hotel is centrally located and it is on a street that is quiet at night. The staff are very helpful and polite. The room was clean and a decent size. The hotel is sandwiched between two buildings, so you will not get a view. A view is always nice, but I did like the fact that the room was quiet. This is a great hotel for the price.
A Gem of a Hotel in Florence
Our family of 4 spent several days in Florence for the second summer in a row at the de la Ville and what a difference this hotel made! A very business oriented hotel in a wonderful location on a marvelous street between the Hermes and Ferragamo stores with an accomodating and warm front desk staff that recommended unique restaurants and treated my teen boys like adults. This sophisticated hotel with many amenities (bathrobes ,turndown service, great A/C, a happy hour with complimentary appetizers and half price drinks, yet a great rate on venere.com) offered us a welcome respite from the charming yet not always comfortable B&Bs we had been staying in. What a find in Florence!
Was not as great as I expected
After reading all the reviews I chose this hotel thinking it's going to be great. Yes, the location was convenient, but that was about all that was above average. My room was very small (even taking into account that most are), the water pipes made so much noise that I awoke whenever someone decided they wanted to take a shower in the middle of the night, and apart from one person at reception the rest of the staff was not very friendly. I was surprised because in my past experiences European hotels tend to be very kind and helpful. I can't help but wonder if it had anything to do with me, and that was such a dissappointment at the end of my trip. I would suggest people not to expect too much.
Florence in may
Hotel de la Ville in Florence, what a gem of a small hotel. Stay at De la Ville for three nights in May and I loved it. The hotel is very centrally
located approx 7-8 mins walk to the Duomo .Around de hotels there are many restaurants and stores. The rooms are new and very clean, even in may I was able to turn on the AC for a good night sleep. The staff was friendly, warm and courteous and tried to help and guide me at all times. They serve a very good breakfast included in the price of the room. I got the room through venere at 200 euros a night. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who is planning a trip to Florence.
Wow! What a Great retreat from the sightseeing!
Huge Room, immaculate. Bathrobes in terrific bath. Smashing breakfast with champagne. Such a step above the ordinary. We would stay here again. Very quiet with great window shopping on the same street. This was a pleasure. Just wish someone in Italy would do crisp bacon!
Loved the Hotel de la Ville
My wife and I recently stayed at the Hotel de La Ville for 5 nights.
The rooms were booked thru our travel agent, but we relied on the favorable trip advisor reviews in making the final selection. The reviews were accurate. Our stay at the Hotel de La Ville was most enjoyable. Service was excellant, the room decor was very tasteful and clean, the bed was very comfortable, and the bathroom was spacious and elegant. The cold buffet breakfast was excellant. The Hotel is very centrally located. If you stay in Florence please try a small restaurant that is located on one of the alley ways just behind and to the left of the Hotel de La Ville Hotel. The name of the restaurant is the Trattoria Marone and it is located on the Via del Moro at its intersection with the Via del Sol. It had great food at very modest prices.
December 22 2003 We stayed here on our honeymoon and this hotel was great. The rooms were a little small but very very nice. The location was perfect walking distance to everything. Inclulding the great shopping in Florence it is all on the same street as the hotel. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. If you stay here eat at Buca Lapi's, it's just around the corner from the hotel. We are from Oklahoma, and have never eaten a better prepared and flavored filet. If you have any questions feel free to email.
Just got back from a week in Florence staying at the De La Ville Hotel.
It was a fabulous experience. The location could not have been better.
The rooms were a good size with very nice bathrooms.The breakfast buffet which was included consisted of fresh fruit, rolls, cheeses, meats, cereals, juices. and champagne. There was a nice bar area for relaxing at the end of the day. The entire staff was very attentive and helpful. At 160 euros a night it was a great bargin.
Immaculately clean room and hotel generally. In good position for all tourist sites. Breakfast buffet was excellent. Only downside was no view from bedroom window whatsoever - only a wall - but cleanliness and quality of bedroom decor made up for this. There is so much to see in Florence there is hardly time to spend in room. I would stay in this hotel again.
