      Stay clear of this hotel !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


      The worst hotel I've ever stayed in!

      It was damp,musty and in need of some serious renovations. The lighting was appalling. The beds needed to be thrown out- there was a piece of plywood under each mattress for support??????

      What was Globus thinking in booking this hotel????

      Yes, the location was good- you're in the middle of the city- but I was so worried that I was going to pick up some disease from the lack of cleanliness of this hotel.

      Do not consider staying in this hotel!

      Great Hotel!


      We stayed here for a night. The rooms were comfortable and clean. What pleased us most during our stay is the availabilty of two toilets in each room. Adjoining rooms are also available on request, which we found most useful as this meant my 17 month old niece had easy access to her grandparents. The baby cot provided was also sturdy. We certainly had a pleasant stay.

      The hotel is about a 4 minute walk to the train station.

      Not what we expected


      I was not at all impressed with this hotel. The room was not very clean, the shower was rotted, and the beds were very worn. It was an old hotel. The dinner we ate in the hotel was not good either. There was a lot of street noise at night. The only good thing about this hotel is the location.

      Old, but fine


      The location is the Hotel's best asset. It is old, but clean and charming. Noisy at night, because you are near the train station. However, it is not unsafe and I would stay again for the location alone. Food was average, but the staff is helpful and friendly. We were warned not to use the nearby ATM, as it eats cards, but to wait and get more "in town" in Florence. Pretty average, but not bad.

      Yikes !!


      Scary, is the only word for this hotel. Location right in the middle of a very busy square, trains, busses, taxis, scooters.....all night long ! Homeless people make their beds right outside of our window, at the bank below. No phone access, except in the room, which didn't work. Dark, dreary decorations, in need of upgrade. I will say the food at the restaurant was good. At least that's something!

      Majestic charming? not!


      We were on a Globus tour a few weeks ago. Our tour guide told us that the Hotel Majestic was not like our American hotels, but it was a great location and "charming." We were extremely disappointed. There are many hotels with great locations in Florence. This hotel is sorely in need to refurbishing. The airconditioning hardly works (it was 85) and breakfast was meager. To top it all off, I got locked in a bathroom off the bar and had to scream and bang on the door for 10 minutes until someone finally came and went to get help! The next morning I told our tour guide that Americans wouldn't call this charming, we would call it seedy!

      Comfort and Location


      We stayed at Grand Hotel Majestic on May24 and 25, 2004. The hotel is an older, well established and centrally located facility within easy walking distance of major attractions in Florence. We had a comfortable room; the only drawback was excessive street noise. Our meals there were very good, and we would certainly consider staying there again if returning to Florence.

      A weekend of culture


      Perfect for a weekend of culture and sightseeing. Near enough to the major sights to walk comfortably. Hotel was very comfortable and food was good, although the breakfast was a bit variable.

      Nice hotel close to San Lorenzo Market


      Second leg of our two week honeymoon trip to Italy. We stayed at the hotel for 3 nights and found the rooms to be clean and spacious. We even had two full size bathrooms. One with the tub and another for the shower. We even had two full size beds. The only let down is that our air conditioning does not seem to work very well, but the staff was very helpful and even gave us two bottles of wine when we checked out.

      The BEST part was, they were able to get us reservations to Italy's best restaurant, Enoteca Pinchiorri (the most I have ever spent on dinner for two. Inn in Little Washington, eat your heart out ) The hotel is within walking distance to the train station and close to everything (restaurants, shopping and site-seeing). Looking forward to staying there again.

      Neither grand or majestic


      Arriving at this 4 star hotel we expected a good size clean room. Not the case - it was dirty and desperately needed refurbishment, as was the case with the entire hotel. Our air conditioning didn't work so we had to move rooms. The underground parking is another 20 Euros on top of the room.

      We rested for a while at the apartment and then went to get dinner. Sarah had a list of places to eat at, and suggest a restaurant called ZaZa. Again, Tom's friend had also told him we had to go there. By the time we got there, which was around 9pm, the line was pretty long and it looked like it was going to rain. We skimmed around the piazza to see if there were ...

      Side note: If you have been wondering why there are so many pictures of Shaylee, it is not because she is the more photogenic of the 2 of us (although that may be the case) it is because I am the artist behind the lens or the schmuck that has to carry around the camera all day, I will let you make your mind up as to which.

      On the way back to the dock at Livorno, we had a quick stop in Pisa to check on the status of the Leaning Tower and the Field of Miracles. I am able to report that the tower is still leaning and best of all people are still doing the ‘look at me I’m holding it up, ...

It was during this wait that we discovered the cherub painting over our bed at the Piccolo is actually a painting by Raphael…lol. (Art history experts, we are not). Many people were trying to sell large copies of it and it was also on postcards. To pass the time I listened to my ...

We were met by Massimo who showed us where everything is. This flat has a sort of communal toilet flushing system so you hear everyone's flushing and each time you get a fright. The wifi is lousy and causing me to spend more time than usual to upload my photos which is really annoying. After some quick grocery shopping we ...
