Historical Traveler Reviews Porta Faenza Florence
Absolutely Wonderful Hotel
Hotel Porta Faenza was fantastic. It has an incredible location, close to the train station, and close the the sights. The hotel is beautiful and their staff was outstanding. The rooms are very comfortable and clean, and the bathrooms much bigger than typical in Europe. The staff made the stay. They knew us by name almost the moment we walked through the door. We only stayed two nights and wished we could stay more. We
had a problem twice with our room key and had someone up to fix it literally in 45 seconds. We highly recommend this hotel.
Very friendly, warm atmosphere
We stayed in this lovely hotel for just one night when visiting Florence. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Location was great, not far from train station but a safe area, with a short walk to main attractions. Room was lovely and clean. I would definitely recommend staying in this hotel.
Loved this hotel!!!
Stayed here July 11th, 12th and 13th 2004.
Very charming Hotal. Staff is very nice . Ask them where to eat. They gave us great places to eat. Room was very big but we did share with another couple. It had one king bed, one twin bed and a pull out bed. I wish they could have at least had another twin bed in the room instead of the pull out bed. But it was okay. The bathroom was very nice and had lots of room. Breakfast was great. It is next to the train station. There is a laundry mat down the street a block or two and a place to use the internet next to it. The internet place is across from the hostle and you can use the phones in there to call home for 15 cents a minute. Which we did. Florence was our favorite palce to stay. The city is calmer and we loved the hotel.
Very comfortable, pleasant hotel
stayed June '04 booked on internet
2 blocks from train station
huge room with big bathroom
close to everything...all of Florence main attractions are within a 15 minute walk
Charming and friendly hotel!!
This is a very charming hotel in a good location. It is near the train station (which has its positives and negatives - a little seedy at night). The rooms are really big though and we had our one & only king sized bed here. The bathrooms are big (compared to most Euro hotels). I would definitely stay here again next time. They have great breakfast and excellent cappucino!!
The family-friendly Porta Faenza
The Porta Faenza was recommended to me by colleagues from Wake Forest University, who bring a group of students there every summer. We needed one large room for five (me, my wife and three daughters). The bilingual desk clerk was very accommodating in booking and confirming the reservation by phone. And the hotel -- just a short walk from the train station -- exceeded our expectations in comfort, cleanliness, hospitality and convenience. We even had a lovely view of Giotto's Tower and the dome of the Medici Chapel from our spacious third-floor room. We stayed six nights and have nothing but praise for the hotel and its staff. The location was the best. A cafe next door on the left, an internet cafe on the right. Two blocks from the outdoor markets.
Three blocks from the Medici Chapel. 10 minute walk to the Duomo. This is an excellent choice for a family.
Quaint and Splendid Little Hotel
We stayed in this hotel in December 2002, found it on the Internet for a great price. The hotel, located walking distance from the train station and reasonably close to most monuments, was convenient with regards to location. The room was very clean, quiet, modern, nicely furnished and comfortable. The continental breakfast was quite decent offering fruits, cereals, breads, meats, cheeses, juices, fresh espresso and cappucino! The staff was helpful and nice. We only had two complaints: 1) Due to the new central heating system we were unable to control the temperature for ourselves and it was a bit chilly in our room, and 2) The European shower head issue- one must shower while sitting in the tub and there is no curtain; kind of a drag considering it was a bit cold. Overall, we recommend this hotel and would certainly stay on our next visit.P.S. For a tasty, authentic and affordable dinner just a couple of doors down try Trattoria Enzo e Piero (Via Faenza 105); also one of the best tiramisu's we've ever had!

... to the top of the tower, and the 4degree lean was really felt as soon as you entered the bottom floor - then again as we climbed the nearly 300 steps up, and I felt it moreso on the way down, a definite sensation of like a pulling to one side. The view from the top was wonderful, and some of the bells at the top were huge. Back to the hotel through the countryside, exhausted ...

That's such a small part of living here, though. I can not help but always want to be exploring, even when it's raining and I'm sick (doctors do not advise this behavior). I'm sorry! I always have a hard time resting even when I know it's best for me. And here, I'll get in over 6 ...

One of our most anticipated, let me rephrase that, one of Sammy's most anticipated stops is the huge Florence leather market, which consists of hundreds of stores and booths full of jackets, purses, etc. Walking through the streets I felt like my name should have been lightning rod Laspa as every other slick willy sales guy proclaimed he had a jacket big enough for a guy like me. What a shark tank that ...
