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.

... you know that there is another big one to walk up on the other side. Our huffing and puffing is a sign of our poor fitness. We need the walk to burn off the food and wine being consumed each day. Anyway, each morning we have stretched ourselves out a bit further. On the positive side there is gorgeous scenery of the different houses plotted along the hills and some vineyards as well. On Monday, the nine of us went ...
... shock and delight Christie...before now he only wanted white wine and only cold wine, even if it was red! He's a changed man! Then we shared a bowl of the house special mushroom soup...indescribable! John had roasted chicken for dinner, Deb had pumpkin ravioli (OMG...also indescribable!), and we shared sautéed spinach. For maybe the first time ever, Deb didn't eat any bread, her absolute favorite food group!! I didn't want to take up room in my stomach with it! How bizarre! Then, as ...
... in San Stefano Cathedral. Excellent performance
and a powerful setting of text -- had never heard the Verdi before.
Soprano soloist was exquisite -- soaring, floating, spinning, with
incredible hangtime. Acappella sections also v. impressive. End with
repeated plea of "libera me," v. desparate. Sounds familiar. Was v.

socks and clean underwear. So exciting. ...
