Dear Guest, Thank you for your review. We are glad to know you enjoyed your stay in Relais Hotel Centrale and hope to welcome you back in the future.

5 out of 5
Hotel is located just off of the Duomo square and San Lorenzo and only a few blocks from the train station. Excellent location close to everything. Staff spoke great English and was helpful. Breakfast included both hot and cold options and brewed coffee which can be hard to find in Italy. My only complaint is that there was not a coffee or tea maker in the room so we had to go to breakfast to get coffee.

Would absolutely come back!

Location: Everything... shopping, sightseeing, food, etc.
We chose this hotel because we had two days and a car. They have a private garage that can house the car (for an additional valet fee... but sooo worth it since there's no where to park in the center where the hotel is located) as well as a laundry service (again, worth it when you've had to wear the same clothing more than expected because Italy had an unexpected cold snap). Literally 3 small blocks from Il Duomo down a quiet cobblestone street so you are away from the bustling crowds and noise. Great security and very helpful front desk staff. Our room was cold and they told us that the heat was off because of the time of year (normally it would be warmer... remember that cold snap I mentioned?) so they gave us a space heater that really helped. Offered the most extensive and by far best continental breakfast experience out of all the hotels we stayed during our trip. You could get eggs, pancakes, and crepes made fresh if you wanted. I'm gluten-free and they had a lot of options and an entire area of clearly marked gluten-free items. The bed was fantastic. Great shower. Very clean. Elevator between floors if you didn't want to take the beautiful, winding stairs to your room. We would absolutely go back. Totally enjoyed this place!

Great Hotel in a Great Location

Location: Close to everything!
This hotel was great. Very convenient location. Firenze is a very walkable city anyway, but we were able to walk from the train station with our luggage with no problem and were only a few blocks from the Duomo. The hotel is on a side street, away from the noise of traffic and tourists, yet there are plenty of shops and eateries on the street which tend to be cheaper and less busy than the places on the main roads. The hotel itself was very clean and well-maintained. The staff was great and was very responsive to requests. We had a minor air conditioning mishap that was fixed immediately upon us notifying them of the problem. There are three things I care about when I book a hotel room - the wifi, the shower, and the breakfast. This place had perfect wifi service, where each room has their own unique login. I never had a problem logging in or staying connected. They even have a computer and printer in the lobby, so I would book my "skip the line" tickets at night and print them the next day before I left the hotel. The shower gets a B+, as it has a "rainfall" showerhead directly overhead in a very small space and it felt a little like I was being waterboarded whenever I tried to rinse my hair. The breakfast was awesome. They will cook you eggs, crepes, or any kind of fancy Italian coffee you want, plus there are many kinds of meats, cheeses, danishes, cereals, yogurts, and fruit. I never felt rushed (even though I'm a late riser and tend to show up at the last minute).
