Hotel Byron in Florence - sub par

Posted Nov 23, 2011 on Hotels.com
This hotel is in a good location close to the bus station, however, it is in very shabby condition. The man at the reception was very friendly but the hotel is just in bad shape - appeared dirty and really let go.

Convenience Plus - Hotel Byron

Posted Oct 23, 2011 on Hotels.com
Hotel was just minutes from train station. We were able to drop our luggage and then enjoy the sights without encumberances. Hotel was a very easy walking distance from all major attractions. Personnel were pleasant and helpful. Room was quite adequate. Bathroom was great and all were extremely clean. Not luxurious but certainly filled our needs.

Nice hotel for the price. Staff very good room a bit small and in need of redecoration could also be a bit noisy. Beware of mosquito's in late September.

A bit scary

Posted Sep 28, 2011
First room we were assigned reeked of cigarettes and was at least 85 degrees inside. We complained and were given a tolerable room. The front desk clerk on check in smelled of body odor and the night clerk had horrific breath. Really it's a run down dump and would try some place else. I would not stay again or recommend.

good location, bare bones comforts

Posted Sep 5, 2011
The hotel is located about 2 streets away from main train station in SMN neighborhood. The room is comfortable, and well sized. The neighborhood offers many great food options and is in a safe neighborhood. Everything is within walking distance. Breakfast was a disappointment (breads, cakes, coffee) but appreciated none the less.

Great location

Posted Aug 28, 2011 on Hotels.com
Hotel Byron is a very short walk from the train station, however our directions/map that we used to find it the first time could have been better. We ended up walking many extra blocks to find it when it was 2 blocks away. Nice, older hotel had a large room with 4 twin beds (we needed 3) which had very old, soft mattresses. Except for the condition if the mattresses, the room was comfortable and spacious. The air conditioning unit was operated by remote control, which was nice when it was on, however, each time we left for a few hours and the maids made up the room, they turned off the A/C and we came back to a hot room. August is very hot in Italy! Breakfast was adequate with croissants, limited cereal, hard rolls, cheese, assorted cookies, toast, yogurt and 2 juices. They had a very nice coffee machine with several varieties of coffee drinks and hot water for tea. We found a lovely restaurant across the street, just down a half a block, which we returned to repeatedly for dinner. Everything in Florence is within walking distance so location of the hotel was good. The staff was very gracious to us and spoke quite good English. They also assisted us with a map of the city, highlighting where the most popular attractions were. We felt very safe walking around the city in the daytime and at night. We would return to Hotel Byron!

Simple, affordable, just fine!

Posted Aug 17, 2011 on Hotels.com
I had a one day layover in Florence after a long backpacking trip, and I was looking for a hotel close to the train station that was simple, affordable, and very close to the train station. I saw Hotel Byron had a special rate for the night I was in for, so I booked a room, and I was happy with my choice. HB is a good three-star hotel with a friendly staff only 100m or so from the main train station. My single room wasn't glamorous by any means, but I was only there to rest, shower, and sleep. The bathroom was very clean, the bed was quite comfortable, and restaurant just outside was just fine. Everything past the main lobby could certainly be remodeled, but at least it has character.

Did not enjoy our stay at all

Posted Aug 6, 2011 on Hotels.com
We only took the room to tide over a few hours but even during that short time, the room we got was damp and musty. There were mosquitoes in the room. The hotel staff was helpful in accommodating requests to deposit baggage. The location is convenient if you want to be close to the train station but apart from that there is nothing which would compel us to stay here again.
