                Comfortable and in a good area.

                Have stayed there before and the staff was polite and helpful, his time the desk staff in the afternoon was rude and snippy. We had ordred a nice large room from you and were fiven a room the size of a closet. When I said that was not what I had ordered they told me that they had no info from you about the room - basically tried to brush us off. Had to get snippy myself before we were given a decent room. We will not return to the Donatello.

                The location is very good near all places of interest and services.

                The breakfast is very poor indeed, limited choices and and they always ran out of items. Wi fi cost is a rip off, also the cost of using your in room safe deposit box 2.5 euros per day another rip off, no food allowed in room is a joke and you are not allowed to put anything in the bar fridge.

                It was noisy. The breakfast could have easily been much better. You had to pay to leave your baggage at the hotel for a few hours once you had checked out. You also had to pay an extravagant amount of money to get internet access even at the public computer they had at the entrance.

                The hotel was charming--the light fixtures, headboards, interior decor all gave an assurance that we were in a historic building. However, the room amenities such as the bath, towel warmer, and size of the room were made for modern comforts. The corridors were part of the charm, providing an expectation that there would be something new and interesting just around the corner.

                Right next to main bus terminal which is 2 mins walk from the train station, very easy to find and convenient when you are carrying luggages from and to the train station Good value for money and good breakfast Hotel reception staff very helpful in telling us about the city and where to go Our room is nicely decorated and with a canal view 5 mins walk to a local supermarket - convenient for us to stock up groceries such as water and snacks

                Make sure you communicate with the reception staff your preferred breaskfast time the next morning bc the breakfast room is a bit small so they give priority to those who book in advance Only bath tub in our room without shower curtain - good for those who enjoy bubble bath but difficult for city people like us

                The staff were welcoming and friendly and it wasn't too far from the centre.

                There were no sockets in the room for plugging in a phone, only light fittings. The room also had lots of mosquitos which were a problem.

                The room was confortable and very quiet as it was on a park

                The worst hotel I ever stayed! They should be removed from Booked.net!

                Too many things I am not happy about, after so many hotels I stayed! 1. Poor customer service! Very Rude attitude from the senior receptionist. 2. Very old facilities and docor, they need serious renovation! 3. Too many mosquitos, we killed around 5 of them, but still many to deal with. The " best" souvenior from Florence: red and swollen bites! 4. Poor breakfast. 5. After all, it is a bad experiences for us to enjoy our trip in Florence, this hotel is seriously over priced, not worth to stay at all!
