500 Firenze

Room was warm and stuffy but air conditioning is turned off during May (some local by-law, not advised on website). Asked for a desk fan (twice), but fan never appeared. Wanted room service, no menu in room. Called restaurant, asked for menu, was told 'we are too busy to bring a menu'. (Busy with noisy party as below) Pool was closed. (Also not advised on website) Extremely noisy party (some corporate function or wedding, not sure) right outside room window until 1 am. Loud disco music. Also some other event were arriving as we checked out. They were testing microphones etc , quite noisy. With so many functions we do not think this hotel can be classified "quiet". To maintain balance - the bed was very comfortable, and hotel was convenient for airport and shopping.

ALEXANDER KING, May 2013

Highlights

  • Stylish and comfortable room
  • Charming, historic villa, consisting of a main building and three annexes
  • Great cuisine with daily changing menu of local products
  • Good transport links to the motorway

Good to know

  • Situated in the industry quarter, outside of Florence. Therefore quietly situated, yet only about 20 minutes away from the city center
  • Due to location a car is highly recommended
  • Small, but adequate outdoor pool,  open from June to August
  • Room service from 7.00 - 23.00
  • Quiet ambiance, yet there can be some events at the hotel
  • Fans on request
  • The town hall decides on heating and air-conditioning times, therefore the hotel has no power over air-conditioning
