Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Montreal Florence
More like hostile, not hotel
I've seen photos of Hotel Montreal on Venere and other sites. My double looked nothing like the images. It was more like a hostile than a hotel. Our glum room had a small window looking out into a wire fence/area. When we asked the front desk how to make local calls, they said we needed to use the pay phone. We gave up trying to call the Uffizi reservation line because we were constantly on hold and running out of change for the pay phone. Of our entire trip to Italy, this stay was the scariest.
I reply just now because now I found out that it is possible!
I am very sorry about your complaint but for sure if you would tell us during your stay we would definetly changed your room.
We have a public phone for common use and we are not entitle to know the purposes of your telephones purposes. We book uffizi and other museums everyday but all our customers ask to do it for them.
I really hope that maybe one day we will be able to make you change idea about our services.
Thank you very much
It's a nice small hotel. Pretty central and close to the train station (5 minute walk, not even). The only thing is that it happens to be beside a Gothic bar, and it could be loud at night, so just ask to not have a room near the alley.
Simple, cheap, close to train station
This hotel is very close to the train station. We were also within walking distance of the main part of Florence. The front desk staff spoke excellent English. The breakfast was very good. (Basic italian continental). The room was extremely small. We stayed in a double bedded room with a private bath. We only stayed one night, so I stuck it out, but I could not have stayed there for a long period of time. It was cramped. I think there was a bar right next door, and our window opened on that side, so I couldn't open it or I was kept awake by the people outside. The hotel was immaculate though. It was a very international neighborhood. You almost couldn't tell what country you were in because there were so many nationalities. But a 10 minute walk, and you're in the center with the restaurants, the church and Duomo, etc. It is a great place for people backpacking, on a budget, using the train system to travel, etc.

... this trip though and I am so glad Skip and I went… Great time.
Well I made it back just fine and was feeling pretty good so we decided I needed some food so we stopped by a restaurant and we had some more wine. Oh and some pizza haha. No, I am not a wino after visiting Florence but I can see how it would be possible… Some pretty tasty wine. And some excellent company (yay for Skip keeping an eye on me J).
Love you all!
... of Michelangelo's work was abandoned, frequently because he was called away to do something else (like paint the Sistine Chapel in Rome ... twice!). Perhaps the hallmark of a Renaissance Man was an overly full Day-Planner. In the New Sacristy, Michelangelo has nearly completed several statues, including polishing portions of their marble to near glass-like smoothness. However, these same stone bodies retain ...

We arrived in Florence on Wednesday by train (1 1/2 hours from Rome) and had a less then 10 minute walk to our apartment. We've had such luck with our previous places, i was not sure if our luck could continue... on first impression, i wasn't sure... but now, after being here, I think the apartment is great.... there is a loft for the kids bedroom which they love, a large room ...
