Historical Traveler Reviews Delle Nazioni Hotel Florence
Low budget Gem
I read reviews on this site before I left for Italy of Delle Nazioni Hotel and wanted to throw my two cents in on this gem of a hotel. The location is perfect. It is situated across the street from the main train station. The location is perfect because you are literally within a few minutes walk of so much (the Domo and the Academia are about a ten minute walk). The lobby staff is absolutely marvelous, and so helpful. All of the staff members during our three day stay spoke perfect english. The breakfast room, as well as the breakfast itself, were wonderful. There is also a bar attached to the breakfast room, although we never went. The rooms were definitly clean, and quite roomy compared to most european hotels. The decor of the rooms was probably the biggest minus. At least one picture on the wall would be nice. For a wonderful stay and a great price definitly book this hotel.
Good value, Clean and Comfortable
Very conveniently located behind main railway station (though you don't hear the trains), the hotel is good value for money. We stayed three nights in May. Rooms appear to have been refurbished and were clean and comfortable. Plenty of hot water in shower. No tea or coffee making in room but sufficient facilities on offer in the large, clean common rooms on the reception floor. TV in rooms has two English channels and large screen TV in common room downstairs. Continential breakfast in large breakfast room with plenty of choices. Very helpful reception staff. Internet available in common room.
This hotel is completely rennovated and lovely. The location is perfect and the common areas are spotless. Enjoyed the breakfast in the morning.
I booked the hotel through Expedia and find his location excellent. The hotel looks completely renewed and there were some works in the lobby area during my stay. My room was confortable and spacious with forniture who looks completely new. Staff was friendly and helpful, especially Elisabetta from the front desk. Breakfast was over our expectactions for a 2 star hotel and location was just perfect. Highly recommended.
Good for a 2 star.
I wouldn't rate this as an "Above Average" but it was a good bargain compared to the rates for the other hotels. And it was definitely convenient to the train station & the museums. The room was clean but spartain and looked like it hasn't been updated in 20 years. The breakfast was minimal, but fine. I think we paid around $90, but with the value of the Euro and compared to other prices in town, It really wasn't that bad. The front desk clerk was exceptional and recommended a restaraunt around the corner called "La Grotta di Leo" which was fantastic. Very good food for the budget shopper. I think our meal "Touristico" was 11 Euro a piece including wine and a very fresh salad.
A must stop in Florence
Great location, good hotel, incredible price! A must stop when visiting Florence. Carlo
I stayed at this hotel Dec. 2003. The hotel staff were very nice. The hotel is located across the street from the train station, very convienant if you come into town late at night. You can walk to the city center or take a bus. The walk takes about 20 minutes. The room was bigger than I anticipated and clean. I would most defintely stay again.
Best Hotel For a Great Price
This hotel was by far more than we expected since we did not pay nearly as much as we did for hotels in other European cities. This hotel has all the ammentities you may need including breakfast in the morning which is only cereal, rolls, juice, coffee and some other little things but it's more than most places. It is located right near the train and bus station. Location is great and the hotel staff was extremely friendly and helpful with all our needs. The only downfall of this hotel was that the heat is turned off at around 9pm and not turned on until 8am so it can get chilly at night when it is cold outside but the hotel provides extra blankets. Overall, if you're looking for an afortable place to stay and do not want to deal with hostels, definitely go for this hotel, you won't regret it.

... with the long wait in the serpentine line to get into the Colosseum but we finally made it. It was wondrous!!! All I had to do was close my eyes for a second and I was transported back to the Colosseum in its full glory. I had translated so many stories that took place there in my Latin classes. And to think of its grandeur, that it was built so many years ago and what a feat it must have been with the lack of technology. Wow! After much time there (I'm pretty sure I was the ...
... to go far but now I was by myself, the memories of my last trip came flooding back and I was hungry to revisit the scenes of such an exciting epoch in my own life. I headed back along the Arno towards the Ponte Vecchio and beyond. I turned in at the Uffizi Gallery and into the Piazza della Signoria and beheld all its grandeur. I crossed the square and was so tempted to keep on to the Duomo but I resisted wanting to share that moment with Mum.

... olive oil. Our guide continued to explain about the olive oil manufacturing process before taking us back to a hall for taste testing. We were presented with a plate full of local cuisine consisting of olive paste on bread, tomato bruschetta, bread with olive oil and some salami and cheese. It was delicious and my first real tolerance for olives! We sipped on two types of chianti from their winery. They were lovely, plum and cherry undertones. The first one was a lighter ...
... get back to Florence. I probably know more about wine than any other 13 year old in the United States at least (not sure about the European kids who drink wine a lot). The scenery was so beautiful and I have to say it made my list as being a little (just a little) better than seeing the guys from Jersey Shore J. I don’t know what I will be talking about tomorrow but I’m sure that it might be the least bit interesting. Arrive Derci!
... crowded once inside. We were actually able to walk around and see just about everything. As far as churches go, it was mind blowing. Gothic, spacious, the artwork was amazing as was everything else from the frescoes, sculptures to the stained glass windows. There are just no words to describe the interior of Il Duomo. Maybe ostentatious.
Back out we go, I decide to take a few more pictures of this mighty structure and move ...
