Historical Traveler Reviews Bellettini Hotel Florence
This hotel was the least expensive of our 5 hotels in Italy. The location is convenient, the staff was friendly and very helpful, and the room was clean and a comfortable size for 3, especially considering the price of 135 Euro.
The bathroom was a little small (we didn't stay in the Annex which we heard had bigger rooms.)
The air conditioning was excellent - we even had our own remote control.
Breakfast offered a wide variety in a quaint, comfortable room, but no hot menu items.
Avoid the rooms directly off the lobby, especially if you like afternoon siestas.
Overall a very good value. We would stay there again. Eat at the Ristorante Paoli 5 minutes away - you won't regret it!
What a lovely little hotel!
This hotel is lovely and in a nice location, near the train station and a few streets from the Duomo. Very good restaurants are nearby. The price is excellent. Breakfast is served in a cozy room. The rooms are very clean. The shower in the room was a bit cumbersome. Nevertheless, I would certainly stay here again.
Location & Charm
Spent a nice five nights at Bellettini in April 2004, welcomed awake in the morning by the bells of San Lorenzo, which was fine. Location can't be beat, about half way between the train station and Duomo. Breakfasts are excellent and room features exceeded expectations, although we couldn't seem to turn the heat down (or off) to a comfortable temperature. If one loves Firenze, however, one doesn't spent much time in the hotel room.
Normally we would not consider a two star property , particularly in Italy . But with the dollar so low , we believed the reviews , and gave the Bellettini a try . We were delighted , our room in the annex was quite large , with frescoes on the ceiling , and good sized bathroom , though the shower stall was a little tight for an old college football lineman , but not my wife . We both agreed we would be staying here on our next trip to Florence .
Annexe rooms are best deal in Florence
Stay in the annexe, as long as you're happy to be more independent and further from reception etc. The rooms there are absolutely beautiful and not at all expensive. Florence is such a magnificent city that it would be a real pity to mar the experience by staying in one of the dingy cells that other establishments offer for the same price.
Almost perfect accomodations
Hotel Bellettini was almost perfect. They moved us from a noisy street facing room to a quiet courtyard facing one, but we knew this might be the case going in. It turned out to be a necessary choice because the adjacent room had small crying children to add to the street noise.The breakfast is typical European pastries and coffee. Not really worth the price except when you factor in the non-hassle factor of trying to find a decent place on your own.Our only complaint was that the computer internet, near the lobby, was EXTREMELY slow. I don't remember if they charged extra for it, but even free, it's not worth it.
We stayed for six nights at the end of September 03 and it cost 130 euros per night for a double room with a very substantial buffet breakfast every day. The hotel is as central as you can get in Florence - very close to the cathedral - so you don't need an alarm clock!A lift at street level takes you to the first floor which is where the hotel reception is. The staff speak excellent English and are very friendly and helpful. There is quite a good bar where prices are very reasonable - eg. 1.5 euros for a glass of wine. The rooms are not spacious but are certainly adequate with good showers and comfortable beds. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. If you want 5 star facilities then you must pay five star prices and in Florence that can be vastly more than you pay at the Bellettini - and what you get for your money will not be vastly better than the Bellettini.
What happened to our reservation?
Our family of 4 stayed here in the summer of 2002. Although the quad room we eventually got was satisfactory, with excellent air conditioning, and they had Internet access and a decent breakfast and a good location for train travelers (all for $180), our experience with the "reservation" we had made changed our perspective of this hotel. We had reserved on the Internet and confirmed via phone. We arrived about noon and were told that we had to stay our first (of two nights) at the Pensione Centrale about a block away, even though they admitted that they knew we were coming. The pensione was a substandard place for the price ($163), with a barely functioning portable air-conditioner. At 9 am the next day, we were told that our room at the Bellittini was ready. When we asked for an explanation (on both days), we were met with smiling faces and unintelligible Italian, i.e., we never did find out what the problem was. With this experience, I'd probably not stay there again.
2 stars going on 4 stars Plus
After arriving during a worldwide demonstration and getting ready to skip Florence the Belletini was an especially fabulous surprise. Do not be fooled by the main building or the medieval alley entrance.Stay at the annex room 52. 12 foot ceilings with frescos, marble floors, American bath and shower. Nice view and the actual entrance is amazing. Breakfast was included nothing to write about. Everyone was very nice and accommodating. It is a 5 minute walk from train station and within walking distance of everything. We paid 150/night. Very, Very clean extra large room.
I would return to this affordable, pleasant hotel. For $80 a day, I had a single room with a comfortable bed, en suite tiled bathroom, TV with 30 channels, a desk with a bright lamp, a large wardrobe with half a dozen hangers, a small refrigerator, a safe, air conditioning, fresh towels every day, and two windows overlooking a quite courtyard. I specifically requested a quiet room and was booked into the hotel's annex (or "dependance") just around the corner. The breakfast buffet, served on linen in an attractive dining room, was large and satisfying. Staff speak English and happily help make arrangements for sightseeing. It's an excellent deal.

The apartment belongs to Horace Gipson. He ihas some amazing art and bric-a-brac in his apartment. Wonderful things to look at everywhere one looked.
