Good central location

Posted Sep 8, 2014
Pros: The location and friendly staff.
Location: Close to Santa Maria Novella station and most of the main sights within easy walking distance.
Had another great stay in beautiful Florence! First time at Hotel Globus. The hotel is located close to the train station just behind San Lorenzo church in a typically Florentine narrow street (no traffic) with bars and restaurants aplenty on the door step. The staff really were particularly friendly and the breakfast very good. My only criticism would be that the interior walls of the hotel were quite thin but nothing my earplugs couldn't handle. This was only noticeable early in the morning and not a problem if, unlike me, you get up at a reasonable hour! All in all I would recommend this hotel for the convenient location, excellent staff and very good value for money.

It's a good Hotel in a Good location

Posted Sep 5, 2014
The Hotel is good for the price and the location . the Breakfast is not that great as the options are very little , but over all I would stay here again as the location was the biggest advantage being close to the train station (no taxi required) and close to the main squares. although the hotel details says that the place has an elevator, it only starts on the second floor so you have to go up one floor, this is not an issue for me but while I was there a guest left as they were surprised and they had a disabled person staying in their room so this would not work for them

great location close to key areas and train stat.

Posted Aug 19, 2014
Pros: staff, location, cleanliness, food.
Cons: better sized options for families and offer the option of the view in the room.
Location: academia and uffizia museums right around the corner. many restaurants, and the bridge/river right there. shopping and the medieval church.
loved the location, it was walking distance from the train station and had many amazing things just around the corner. the staff were great, the food excellent. the hotel was nice, but the room was a bit small with no view. windows faced a wall and there were loud dishes clanking all night (perhaps a restaurant beneath our room). I would go back in a better room, with a view.

Hotel Globus Florence

Posted Aug 15, 2014
We stayed for 4 nights in August. The hotel is ideally located for the Central Florence sights being on a few minutes walk. Close to the railway station too. The hotel is small clean and tidy. Our room was small but perfectly fine. Only compliant was the TV which had no remote. The sky TV was mainly Italian content hence we didn't use it, but then why would you your in Florence. Recommend you get a ferenzie card if your likely to spend a couple of days looking at theain sites. Get u to the from of the very long queues and saves money if u visit more than 5 or 6 museums. Free wifi too

Great hotel with fabulous little touches!

Posted Aug 13, 2014
We had the super economy room which was clean yet not spacious. However this didn't disappoint as we were rarely in the room during the day. The location of the hotel is terrific, a 10 minute walk to the train station and the road is quiet in the evening so there is little noise in the room. The hotel staff are excellent and will help in every way. They gave us fantastic restaurant recommendations (true Italian) and between 5.30 - 7.30 cheese and wine was offered where you ate breakfast for free. Fabulous hotel with thoughtful touches. Would definitely recommend.

Clean but small

Posted Jul 31, 2014
V clean hotel. But small room, and even smaller bathrooms. Amazing staff, v helpfull. Its trues, that air conditioning at the backyard, will make you jump every 5 minutes but if you ok with sleeping with closed windows, than it shouldnt be an issue. Will I come back if in Florence? Yes.

room 102 smells like the chinese restaurant below

Posted Jul 31, 2014
Pros: location, staff
Cons: beds, room scent, bed linens
The hotel is centrally located. You can walk to all the major sites. We stayed in room 102 and noticed the room had a sour odor to it and notified the front desk who told us it was because of the chinese restaurant right below it. The hotel was fully booked that night but they moved us to another room the next night which was great since we could not stand the smell of the room 102. We also booked another room which had an AC leak at night right by the head of the bed! The front desk just put a towel underneath the leak and fixed it the next day. You have to carry up your luggage two flights of stairs! There is no elevator from the entrance to the second floor where the check in desk is. The breakfast was not good...just boiled eggs, ham, cheese, croissants. The coffee tasted burnt, but after traveling for 2 weeks I was just glad to have coffee available in the morning. This is a decent hotel with very nice staff but I am sure there is a lot better out there.
