Our flight from Toronto went fairly quickly for an 8 and a half hour flight! We safely landed in Rome, and then our adventure began. I was a little worried because getting to florence was the only trains we didn't have pre-booked. After running through the airport to catch our first train (It kind of felt like we were on The Amazing Race), we made …

We loved the visit to the Museum in Florence as each of the statues clearly had quite an impact on everyone. It helped having the guides give us such good background information as well. The statue that still looked half-finished was called "The Awakening Slave" and was extremely expressive. Everyone identified with the struggle …

Other areas of the church complex, which include the Medici Chapels and a library designed by Michelangelo, were not open today. But we did enter the arched crypt below ground, where there are numerous reliquaries on display, plus the ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN Grand Hotel Adriatico Florence

    A satisfactory (but not a great) experience.

    from

    Things began badly: our room wasn't ready at the time we were told it would be, and it wasn't the two-bedded room I had reserved a long time in advance. It was, however, clean, quiet and comfortable with an attractive bathroom. During the first half of our stay the hotel was very full and the hard-working staff struggled to cope with serving (the satisfactory) breakfast at peak times. The hotel was within walking distance of all major attractions, and it was also convenient for trains/coaches to Pisa airport. The restaurant was only OK, but all the staff in the hotel were pleasant and helpful.

    Ho hum...

    from

    We spent two nights here on a CIT tour that had 4 star accommodation. We had a huge room that was really nice but another couple on our tour said there room was a tiny box? We thought the breakfast was really good... even though Italian's really don't know how to make decent latte! Through Italy, good luck getting real cafe style coffee! We struggled and are now over dosing now we are back in Australia! The staff were like most others we found around Italy, not very friendly but I think it's just the way it is there?

    The hotel has a cheap internet service in the lobby which was great for checking emails quickly.

    Average

    from

    My family stayed here in July 2004. The hotel is quite average for a 4 star hotel. Throughout our holiday in Europe we mainly stayed at 3-star hotels with this being the only 4 star hotel. The only things that differentiate it from 3 star are the size of the rooms and the full breakfast. Otherwise, the decor is pretty average and the hotel facilities are also pretty standard. The staff were helpful and the hotel is within walking distance from the train station. Overall our stay was pleasant but I would definitely not rate it as a 4 star place.

    Tour Group Hotel not 4 Star

    from

    This hotel is far from the City center and is average. The A/C doesn't work very well (or the hotel keeps control of it) and the rooms are average. Your room key must be inserted into a special slot in the room to allow you to turn on the lights and A/C. This system is terrible and I wouldn't have expected to find this in a 4-star hotel - very annoying!! There are better hotels to stay at in Florence. This hotel seems to be used by group tours and also had over 50 students from Berkley staying in the hotel for 50 days. Breakfast was good and had a nice courtyard.

    This is not a four star hotel

    from

    What a disappointment this hotel is, definitely not four star. The neighborhood is very out of the way from all destinations, and isn't very pretty or distinctive. The hotel decor is drab and dated, it really needs a facelift. Our first room could have been in an old Holiday Inn in Florida, there was nothing European or Italian about it at all. After one night on a terrible mattress, I asked the very indifferent and uncaring desk staff if we could have another room. After looking at three other rooms identical to the one I was already in, I was finally shown a very pretty refurbished room with good mattresses. The only nice thing I can say about the hotel is that there is a nice patio where you can have your breakfast each morning. I would never go back to this hotel, there are so many others in Florence in better locations.

    Comfortable stay

    from

    My family just returned from 10 days in Italy, 3 nights of which were in Florence at the BW Grand Hotel Adriatico. The rooms was clean, quiet, and had all needed amenities. Breakfast room is bright and spacious and a full American breakfast is served. A 5 Euro charge allows guests to use hotel computer Internet for 1 hour. We would stay here again. Good restaurant , MASO, across the street . Not far from train station, but not direct, a taxi is the best way to transport luggage.

    Good - some improvements would be nice

    from

    My husband and I stayed 4 nights at this hotel last week. The fact that the hotel is very close to the train station is helpful when you are carrying your luggage. We didn't mind the fact that the hotel was not in the middle of the tourist sights since it was only a 10-15 minute walk to the city center. Our bathroom looked like it was renovated recently, and I loved taking baths after hours of walking around.

    A Lovely Stay

    My partner & I stayed here for 5 nights at the end of September 2003, and were very impressed.
