    This hotel is in a brilliant location. I was just out of the city centre which was prefect to get away from the hustle and bustle. The hotel was clean from top to bottom. Our rooms were spacious and the bathroom was brilliant. We even had our own mini bar. Our view wasn't the best. It was overlooking a small court yard, we didn't mind that much because we were always out and about. The breakfast was pretty good. The staff were really helpful with booking our tour to Pisa and Lucca. Would recommend this place.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Malaspina Florence

    Perfect for the business traveller, otherwise lacking charm


    The Malaspina is a lovely clean hotel - facing a somewhat bland park in a quiet business/residential area, three blocks from the train station. If I was in Florence on business and wanted a safe haven - I would chose this hotel. However - it was completely lacking in either charm or sophistication - hovering somewhere between the two. And therefore not my recommendation for a vacation in FLorence. I would have been much happer to be closer to the Duomo, the restaurants, cafe's, shopping, etc and would have sacrificed the large sterile room in favour of something more quaint. The front desk staff was merely adequate for directions and info - not particulary friendly. The bathroom was cramped but our large bed room was quite spacious, although lacking in decoration. With a few well placed pictures or mirrors, nicer amenities, this hotel could have been luxurious, but instead it left us cold. While it is true that all the sites are merely a few large city blocks away, you do so much walking in FLorence - it would have been much nicer to be in the middle of the action - rather than out of the way. The breakfast buffet was ok - rolls, eggs, cheese, cold meats etc.

    Best hotel where I have stayed in Europe


    Location great because not in center of tourist area and noise but close enough to get there in 5 minutes. Staff spoke perfect English and gave great assistance.

    Breakfast very good and included meat and cheese.

    Hotel room large with nice bathroom, two twin beds, large closet, and quiet. 10 minute walk to train station. Price at 70 euros per night was bargain. Will definitely stay there when I return to Florence.

    A Disappoinment


    First the positives...great breakfast. Well, that's about it. The rest was bland and disappointing. The front desk staff couldn't crack a smile if their lives depended on it...

    The rooms are dark and cramped.

    The location isn't bad, but the park on which it sits is most dreary in the winter months.

    Enhance your Florence experience by searching out another hotel.

    Vry nice hotel


    September 2003: Very nice hotel close to the center in a very old building. Hotel is renewed and has spacious rooms. Bigger then any hotel we have stayed in Italy. Nice helpfull people, good breakfast, elevator and parking around the corner. If back in Florance we will stay again.

All transport in Venice is by boat-deliveries, emergency services, taxis- everything that is done on wheels in other cities is done by boat. Delivery barges- deliver goods (anything from food to a grand piano) as near as possible to their destination as the canals permit. The goods ...

Before boarding the bus, I found a Vodofone store and bought myself a SIM card. And then, I managed to reach the bus stop from the station near their house, after which I needed help and he was kind enough to guide me. It was a beautiful home and must be many years old. Once I settled down, my hosts gave me ...

    Its only 1.5 hours to get to Florence (or Firenze as Florence is called on the local maps) from Roma. Hinesh and I don't read our tickets properly and settle ourselves in quite comfy seats. Then the train conductor comes around and tells us we are in First Class and we had only paid for normal class, oops. We are told to move and we lug our backpacks to normal ...

    Florence had a great vibe about it, and hopefully next time I visit it will be on the weekend so I can stay away from Americans for once! But the history and traditions were apparent and I so enjoyed understanding some of them. Ciao Florence, Fregene tomorrow (beach town outside of rome) another beach on this trip, can't beat that.

    ... back in the 1500 I think and it is massive! Done out of one massive block of marble and its like 8meters tall. Apparently weighs over 5 tonnes. Was pretty impressive, especially the way they sculpt all the muscles and stuff. Saw all the other old sculptures and paintings in the museum but all gets a bit lost on me. Afterwards we went on a mission to find an Irish pub. All Blacks vs Aussie first test kicked off at 12pm. Walking around in my shiny new all blacks ...
