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.

... than ideal but the room smelt nice and wasn’t 100 years from the centre of town.
Once we woke up we headed off to get some gelato, as it seemed the most appropriate thing to do. We found a nice looking place that had great flavors and I ordered a waffle cone with two flavors while Holly still decided. Before I knew it she asked for 10 euro, I responded with a WTF? I paid the money and ...
Day 5. Started the morning with a line- skipping trip to the museum Accademmia to see Michelangelo's most famous sculpture, David. It was a much smaller museum than I expected. David was at the end of a long corridor in the second room off the entrance. It was a massive sculpture almost two stories high and had a beautiful glass dome skylight above it which was built specifically for the statue. The detail was amazing as well as the story. It was ...
... a lazy day exploring and getting lost up here amongst the tree lined avenues and exploring the various museums dotted around the place.
Back over the Ponte Vecchio and you will immediately pick up the crowds heading to the Uffizi Galleries (in my opinion 3rd in artistic importance in Western Europe behind The Louvre and the Vatican Musuems). Again its a patience-first approach unless you have pre-booked but once you have made your way in you can easily spend a day ...
