NIce hotel close to airport and restaurantsPosted Oct 7, 2013
Pros: Close to airport.
Location: Had a great surprise in an amazing restaurant around the corner that was a great ending to our trip! Ask desk about steak flourentine.
Older hotel so it was plain and you get what you pay for but pleasant enough for a nights stay. Staff were super friendly and very helpful, plus they spoke good english.

DisappointingPosted Sep 27, 2013
We deeded a hotel close to the airport and had lots of choices. However this one was disappointing. The machine for guest keys was broken so that we needed to be accompanied by staff to get into our room. The double bed had one side higher than the other and it sloped. There were also an army of mosquitoes which inhabited the room as well.

very nice hotel close to airportPosted Sep 19, 2013
Pros: convenience to airport
Location: Located in a residential area; only a few restaurants within walking distance. But we had a very good dinner in a pizzeria about 15 minutes walk.
Our room was very basic, but comfortable, spacious and clean. The residential neighborhood was very quiet during the evening, although in the morning, some rush hour traffic could be heard from a nearby thoroughfare; this was not a problem. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. The continental breakfast was abundant and very good. It took us less than 10 minutes to get to the airport by taxi (11 euros).

Overnight, near airport.Posted Aug 16, 2013
Pros: Close to the airport.
Cons: General room comfort. Need to have functioning air. Tv very small.
Very hot, air conditioning didn't work. Hard bed. Would not have stayed another night. The desk clerk at check in was wonderful- very helpful and friendly. She offered info, volunteered information. Even pre-scheduled the taxi for me.

Worth a visitPosted Jul 26, 2013 on Hotels.com
The day staff were very helpful. Thank you Zinit and Roman. The breakfast was very good. Thank you Maria. Being able to buy bus tickets from reception cut costs to reach the city, about 20 minutes by bus. No need to take a taxi to the major attractions as the bus is just as fast. Make sure you have a ticket before travelling by bus because some drivers do not take the 2 euro fare and inspectors are vicious. Local meal outlets offer good food at reasonable prices. Be aware that Florence charges a city tax of 1 euro per star rating of the hotel per day (up to 7 days) for each person. Although it is close to the airport, Hotel Franchi is quite peaceful. Wi-Fi reception was good. The air conditioning was welcome in July.

Close to airportPosted Jul 16, 2013 on Hotels.com
If you don't mind walking a bit, it is close enough to the airport that you don't need a taxi. Very kind staff - and knew English. Not far from public transportation to take us into Florence. Purchased bus tickets at hotel desk. Breakfast wasn't until 7am and we had to leave a lot earlier for our flight - so we don't know how good breakfast was. Fine hotel that provided what we needed.

Basic Hotel Close to AirportPosted Jul 15, 2013 on Hotels.com
We booked a one-night stay at Hotel Franchi as we had a 6:30 AM flight the next morning. The hotel is in a residential area and was quiet. The ownership has tried to update the facility, however, the room was quite basic. Hotel Franchi wouldn't be my first choice for an extended stay while on vacation in Florence, but for what we needed it was sufficient.

Wonderful , friendly and helpful staff.Posted Jun 23, 2013
Pros: Staff breakfast was great.

Stayed just one night because it was near the airport. Very pleasant but not much of a location.
