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.

... Upon our return we were dropped back at the pick up point right behind a protest and police line. Not the first protest we have seen in europe, we have probably come across three or four during our time. We detoured around the crowd and grabbed dinner close to our hotel at an Indian restaurant. What a mistake that was. Adrian ordered tikka but what he got were big chunks of raw chicken. Not impressed! He returned it and decided not to eat anything. I ate mine and we ...
My Michelangelo class seems like it will be interesting too. We took a walk through Florence while our professor showed us interesting points in the city for architecture. She showed us how on one intersection, there were buildings from multiple different centuries. If you looked closely, you could see the different features of architecture of each century. The reason there was such a mix in this part of the city is because in World War II when the Nazis were retreating ...
... It was almost impossible to take photos in the art museums. They had signs all over the place, and would not even allow photos without the flash. They want to control the images of this art. They feel they have the copyright to them. They will, however, be thrilled to sell you catalogs, calendars, and coffee mugs of the same images for inflated prices in the gift shops. So the result was that I carried my camera and bag most days and was unable to ...
