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.

In order to keep from becoming desperate to see “everything”, Kathy and I re-calibrated expectations and chalked this day up to an introduction to Florence, nothing more. With that new set of lowered expectations firmly in place, we set off to quickly breeze through some of the most remarkable sights imaginable.
How about the Cathedral of Santa Maria Del Fiore (the second largest cathedral ...
... and settle in. We decided to take them to a restaurant called Miraggio, recommended by the one and only Julie Meyers, a very trusted food critic in my eyes. We ordered a big mix of things (pizza, pasta with pesto, chicoria, and calamari). I was excited to watch their faces as they took bites of each dish. I just love it when you take someone out for real Italian food for the first time and you can just watch their eyes open wide, and that look of ...
We drove to Firenze yesterday, one of the major destinations in Tuscany. It only took us about an hour to get there, and we lucked out and found a free parking space at the Michelangelo Plaza just outside the old town. The plaza is a great spot to park, not only because it's free but also because it has a panaramic view of Firenza including the Duomo, the Arno river and its bridges, and the rest of the town. We walked on down to ...
