      Wicked place to stay

      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

      from

      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

      from

      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

      from

      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

      from

      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.

      8th - 11th August

      We arrived in Florence mid afternoon and once again we had the task of trying to find our hotel. We already checked out where about our hotel was on our phones so we knew it wasn't too far away. We crossed over the road to McDonalds to use their free wifi get double check which direction to go in. My phone didn't pick up …

      ... This hotel was much cheaper and so much nicer. This move was going to save me over $300. I got a room on the top floor, the 5th I went up into the room and it was perfect. Sigh! This is was I was looking for. It had a balcony that had a view of many of the domes and rooftops in Florence. It was bright, natural light, clean and comfortable. She even called me after I got into the room to see if I was happy with it - a great touch. ...

      The Duomo day

      A travel blog entry by ellabright on Jul 30, 2014

      We woke up early this morning because we all wanted to have enough time to see the Duomo. It was the most prominent building in Florence and it wouldn't be a proper trip without seeing it. We packed up all our things and had breakfast, where I was able to talk to Jonathan for a little bit. We decided it would be smart to figure out our train tickets first before we did anything else so we went to the train station and after asking around, we bought our tickets to rio maggiore. We got ...

Wonderful sunset dinners and delicious buffet breakfasts were enjoyed and the quiet nightly Drambuie sessions topped off every day. Pure ...

      Around 9pm last night we arrived off the flight from London Gatwick and made our way via the very easy airport bus to central Florence. The bus/train station Santa Maria Novella is pretty much in the center of the city and as Florence isn't all that large we had a ten minute walk to find the hostel- definitely one of the easiest transits i've ever done! The hostel was in a traditional Tuscan ...
