    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Meridiana Florence

    Wonderful stay


    I just returned from a 3 night stay at the Hotel Meridiana while visting Florence (March 4-7th). The Hotel Meridiana staff was extremely helpful and friendly. By purchasing an internet card for a reasonable rate you will have internet access in the lobby. The rooms were comfortable, clean, and safe. The location was very convenient (a supermarket, bancomat (ATM), and bus stop are all within a couple of blocks from the hotel). Take bus #1(A/B) or #7 for a 5 minute bus ride into center city Florence (stop at the Duomo). You will be able to purchase the tickets from the front desk :)

    I would definitely stay here again.



    On a recent trip to Florence, myself and my partner spent four nights at the Meridiana. Our room was warm and cosy with air conditioning. The bathroom was a delight, with a great shower and fresh towels everyday.

    Breakfast was lovely, especially the hot coffee poured by the charming chefs/waiters.

    Everywhere was really clean. The staff were very polite. Nothing was too much trouble for them.

    We would definately stay there again.

    Great budget hotel


    I was on a budget when I visited Italy, so I decided to go with Hotel Meridiana. The rooms were a good size (in European standards), clean, comfy and safe. The customer service was excellent, always willing to provide help or info and always greeting you as you came and went. The free breakfast was also a pleasant surprise... it was filling and delicious. The location is not too bad either.. it is a few blocks from Plaza Liberta (name?), the supermarket and the bus stop. I will definitely come back to Hotel Meridiana when I return to Florence. I definitely recommend this place for the budget-minded traveler.

    Nothing more to be said


    We have spent 3 nights at this hotel, from 27th to 30rd December, Florence is fully ocupied by tourists during Xmas(you better book in advance tickets for museums if you want to avoid 1 hour line to see David or Los Uficci)

    The hotel is located in a calm district, may be with no many restaurants, but we agree completely with the 4 previous reviews

    We had a double room for 55 euros including breakfast, it is a Great choice, We highly recommend it.

    Loved the Meridiana


    We stayed at the Meridiana in late November and greatly enjoyed our stay. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms are roomy by European standards and very clean. The staff was able to provide valuable information including restaurant recommendations. Definetely go to Perseus, which is one or two blocks down the street. Great food and ambiance. Definetely have the Torta di Nonna, an italian dessert made with Pignoli or pine nuts. The hotel is on the bus line, the #1 and #7 which go downtown or else you can walk the approximate 20mins to the major sites. Breakfast was included and consisted of bread and croissants, yogurt, cereal, hot chocolate and coffee, cheese. There is a computer in the lobby for checking email. YOu can buy a card to use it. I believe I payed 5 euros for a card for 60minutes. This place was definetely a great deal for the money.

    A very enjoyable stay


    Our family spent two nights at this hotel and found it very comfortable and economical. The staff were very friendly and spoke very good English. It's a walkable distance from the centre, 20 mins, or by bus (Nš7) which goes to the centre and the train station.

    Friendly staff


    The staff was so friendly and helpful (speak english)and they sell one-way bus tickets. The #1 and #7 stop right down the street and both go downtown. Breakfast was average and so was the room. Our minbar was missing but the front desk gave us ice and there is a fairly big grocery store and ATM 2 blocks away. You can walk to the Uffizi in about 20 minutes and Frisole is only 3 miles the opposite direction. Only 1 block away is Persesus and they have the most fabulous food, service and ambiance at a good price. As this hotel is away from the main attractions it was easy to get a good, quite nights sleep. My husband and I would stay here again.

    My Second Home


    I stayed at this hotel for four months. I loved it. The staff is great! They all know English and they are very helpful. If you want to get away from all the tourists but still be close to everything, and are also travling on a budget. Stay here. Tell Mauro, Danielle, Fabio ciao.

    North of the City


    I just spent 2 nights at this hotel (beg of March 2004). It is rated as a 3 star hotel near the museum of the accademia. I would have to say that you get what you pay for. If you have traveled to Europe before and know what to expect when you book a 3 star hotel then I would recommend staying here. The hotel is easy to go to and from and two bus lines stop less than 1 block away from the hotel. The hotel also helped with making reservations to the local museums and everything went without a hitch, I would have liked a room with a safe but the hotel did not have one. If you are not used to traveling in Europe then I would recommend staying at a hotel closer to the center of the city as this one is north of most of the attraction you are going to want to see.

    ... evening we were taken by mini van to a restaurant in a Tuscan hills town south of Florence for dinner. The restaurant was in a little town called Impruneta, not far from where we will be staying after the tour. It was set high up on a hill looking down a little valley. The location was incredible and so was the food. We had a 6 course Tuscan feast that included antipasti courses of cured meats and cheeses, followed by pasta and ribolitta ...

We then had an optional walking tour that we skipped (getting sicker) and cruised to find the town church. It was very pretty, the whole of Florence was beautiful and it was clear that it was the birthplace of the renaissance! There were amazing sculptures and fountains everywhere, just like Rome! The church stood out because it was ...

    ... people, but I thought "expensive" meant just below the $100 range for shoes or dresses-which is what I wanted. Yeah, umm..... Dear Italy, I cannot afford to fly out here and to buy $200 shoes and $300 dresses! I mean, they were be-a-u-tiful. Lovely platform beige slingbacks with black detailing that would have looked great with this little black dress that I did buy. These lazer cut leather boots that had more exquisite details than any leather good ...

Our good friends, Mike and Eloise Futrell of Baton Rouge, have stayed in this apartment three times in the past and were full of guidance concerning the town and the ...

    ... in Rome. What made these unfinished works so interesting was it gave you some inkling of how Michelangelo worked since they were only a handful of unfinished works that the Renaissance master had not destroyed. One in particular was very interesting as it showed untouched marble with parts of the sculpture being given form, then refined form and finally some finishing touches; not particularly beautiful to look at but extremely interesting from a technical point ...
