    Historical Traveler Reviews Kraft Hotel Florence

    Good Old Cockney Knees Up

    from

    Had a great time at the Kraft, with a really friendly and helpfull staff. The rooftop bar was great fun!!! The Florentine roofline gets pretty hazey after 3 or 4 bottles of vino-collapso... Decent sized rooms and very clean... Never had any problems whatsoever. AND some fabulous restaurants very near by like the Cibrčo, which has a formal restaurant and a back room. You can eat the same food in the back room for a 3rd of the price of the main and still enjoy a great atmosphere.

    As for bars; All'Antico Vinaio and Fuori Porta are pretty neat wine bars with Fuori's having a huge selection, Rex's bar is good for cocktails and tapas and Cabiria is great to take it easy and pretend you are cooler than you really are when you are stuck in your office back home. Caracao is a dive, but has heaps of Tequila to make you happy.

    Fun in Florence

    from

    Loved staying at the Golden Tulip. Nice spacious room and beautifully decorated. The staff were exceptionally courteous and very helpful. It is in a quiet area, but we liked that because Florence near the Pontevecchio can be very busy. We attended a concert at the Teatro which is a 2 or 3 minute walk from the hotel. They have a lovely rooftop cafe that has breathtaking views of Florence. Good food and drink. I would stay there again.

    The Kraft was great!

    from

    My husband and I spent two nights at the Kraft Hotel during September 2004, and enjoyed our stay very much. The room was nice and clean, the staff helpful. Location is great, and quieter than I thought it would be. The rooftop bar was fun. We'd definitely stay there again.

    Attractive hotel, impolite staff

    from

    The Golden Tulip Kraft hotel has some very nice things to recommend it: handy location, lovely rooftop pool, and nice amenities.

    However, we were not pleased with the staff. The bald-headed breakfast waiter brought my husband tea rather than the coffee he'd requested, and then proceeded to clean the whole dining room rather than bring the correct beverage as requested. The front desk lady was unhelpful and demanded that we take the ironing board back up to our room and she would call housekeeping to pick it up there. How rude to expect the guest to carry it back up to the third floor rather than just have housekeeping pick it up at the desk. Generally disappointing staff attitude toward guests who are not demanding.

    Great Stay!

    from

    My wife and I were very pleased with our stay at this hotel. The room was clean, nicely decorated, and had a lovely bathroom. The rooftop restaurant was wonderful. We had our daily breakfast there, and on one occasion dinner. Johnathan, our server for dinner, was extremely friendly and helpful, as were all the staff. The hotel was close to the river and just a short walk from the historic center. I would definately recommend this hotel, and will stay there again if we ever get back.

    Single Traveller

    from

    I stayed at the Kraft Hotel for 4 nights in October 2003 and booked a single room. I found the hotel staff very helpful and friendly and it has a great location with no more than 10-15 mins walk to the historic centre. I was quite disappointed with the cramped conditions of the single room - it was very small and the furniture was old fashioned and in general need of decoration. However, the room was clean and the on-suite bathroom was clean and nicely presented. I would be interested to compare the double rooms as suspect that a single traveller is not considered as worthy of 4 star treatment than a couple.

    Good Choice

    from

    We stayed at Hotel Kraft for 4 nights and really enjoyed our stay. Our room and bathroom was quite large compared to other hotels we've stayed at in Europe. They have an elevator which is helpful and a very pleasant staff. The breakfast is acceptable (cereal, pastries, yogurt, canned fruit) but nothing spectacular. The rooftop terrace mentioned in other reviews was closed due to remodelling. One other helpful tidbit is that the hotel doesn't have it's own parking which we thought it did. If you're in a rental car, you'll be parking in Garage Europa which is a couple blocks away and costs 20 Euros a day. There's also a great restaurant nearby called LaRotonda.

    Excellent hotel if you don't mind walking

    from

    We stayed at this hotel 4th Sept to 6th Sept 2003, the hotel room we stayed in was a double room, it was a very spacious room, none of the rooms have got a view, as you are quite a distance from the centre but take the lift up to the roof top terrace, it has an amazing view of florence including the duomo and there is a swimming pool with sun loungers. There is also a bar on the roof top terrace but is rather expensive. The breakfast is continental and is nice. It is about 30 minutes walk from the centre, so if you don't mind walking, then it is a great place to stay at, the view itself from the roof top terrace makes up for all the walking.Overall, excellent hotel in a quiet location.

    The Kraft excels

    from

    Fifty family members have just returned from the Kraft hotel, after our son and fiancee's marriage. It was sheer magic, the reception staff were the best ever encountered, nothing was too much trouble, rooms were comfortable, always spotless, all Florence of interest was within walking distance although a taxi could be called within three minutes.

    Reception area was lovely , lifts arrived quickly, pool cleaned regularly, gorgeous views from rooftop restaurant where we ended our son's wedding day with a jazz band after a lovely wedding reception in another situation. Thank you to everyone in the Kraft from all the Williams family. See you again definitely.

    Great Hotel!!

    from

    This was an excellent find! We stayed at the Kraft Hotel August 2nd - 6th during a heat wave. The pool and air-conditioned room were perfect.

    My husband and daughter didn't want to leave. The staff was friendly.

    Our room was huge even by american standards. The view from the swimming pool was breathtaking. Breakfast was served every morning out on the terrace. We loved this place! We walked to all major museums, churches and piazzas with our 6 year old. We will be back.

But C got some nice bookmarks as a gifts (in retrospect, I probably should have picked a few up as well, next time!)

    Now we were hungry and it was approaching 2:30. Since we had to head to Piazza della Signoria for our Uffizi reservation at 4pm, I thought ...

    Blogging Lesson #14

    A travel blog entry by khanovasemya on Aug 11, 2013

    Getting ready for a fun day when I received a message someone had commented in my blog. Thinking it was our beloved friend Karen or Farid, I opened it immediately. Was I ever surprised it was Linda, a disgruntled stranger who hates Italy, loves trolling, and was harshing my mellow.

    So, dear friends and family, comments have now been disabled.

    And I think I'll be posting on a delay now. No need to advertise our whereabouts.

    By the time we made it back to the hotel, I'm happy to report I retained all of my appendages. A couple of hours sitting by the window, people-watching and reading (and conveniently close to the radiator) were just what we ...

    ... a half an hour and we decide even if we get in now, we won't have enough time to see anything, so instead, we get tickets for Tuesday morning and we can skip the queue. In the piazza out the front (Piazza Della Signora) there is a marble replica of Michelangelo's  "David". Paul reckons his hands are too big, but since David is meant to be anatomically perfect, I guess his hands are proportional. I can tell you for a fact though that the size of ...
