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.

... captured many a beautiful picture of the red roofs and the river (not sure the name yet) flowing through town.
We got home late and enjoyed a glass of wine on the patio at our B&B and met a great family from California. After the wine we went out for pasta. The whole meal was very good and we ate too much. We went without a drink though because I really like to have tap water with supper but all they had was bottled water.
... yes, very good! And this works? You meet the best people, then, the very best. The ones who trust. The ones who don't feel the same kind of fear, are paralyzed by it. To me it is a symbol - all this is like a symbol. And symbols are invaluable for life.
"Take Catholicism - Catholicism is big because it knows what to do with a symbol. Yes, the churches - you take the churches away and what is left? Not much, no not much. St. Peter's is a symbol. The pope is a symbol. ...
... to Santa Maria del Carmine, which has a cloister- we wandered around the church a bit, until we got kicked out by a monk because he was closing. HAHA. He had to pull on a rope to unlock the door, cool stuff.
A bit of the church had been roped off, and you had to walk through the courtyard to get to a side door to by tickets to get in. Apparently it's reservation-only and you're only allowed in fifteen minutes, no bags. Not so for us. They didn't really care about any ...
