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.

... what I really wanted for the atmosphere. We met back up with Christina and Holly to walk down toward the steps with Juan and Joy. We relaxed on the steps and took turns taking couple-y pictures on the steps over-looking Florence. After a short while, with about an hour until sunset, we walked down the steps to a plaza with an awesome view of Florence. All of us gathered around to take pictures here as well. Jackie and I noticed a small restaurant ...
... one who enjoyed it, the others said it tasted like floor cleaner. Maybe that is why I thought it would be a brilliant idea to combine Stephanie and I's bed to make a queen one, which later ended up with a floating bed in the corner. Let's just say I had to go buy paint for the walls the next day. We also discovered "Gusta Pizza", whichhhh is THEEEE BEST PIZZA in the entire world! But for real though, I've gone there twice already this week!

We took our compulsory share too, after all it's a magnificent piece of work, even if it is only a copy. I'm sure most people would not know the difference anyway. I did not care it was a copy, I just enjoyed seeing it.

We did manage to find somewhere but needed to use about a kilo of coins to get enough time to explore the sights for the afternoon (top tip – take the bus into Florence!).
