    I like very much the location of this hotel.

    I didn't like the breakfast band I also recomand to improve the aspects of the garden.

  • Group of friends

    The Hotel has a great location, the staff is quite friendly and the room was comfortable.

  • Older travelers

    this was the largest room weave ever had anywhere in Europe usually the rooms are quite small.

    the Continental breakfast was not good .Coffee from a vending machine, also canned meats and fruit cocktail from can, But location was perfect close to everything.For the price I would stay there again.I went out for breakfast plenty of places to go eat.

  • Older travelers
    6.2

    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 only positive thing was the awsome city where Hotel is placed.

    Air conditioning cannot be managed from your room. Each time you want to modify temp or fun speed you need to ask for at reception.

    the hotel is really worth the money. on our trip we were to rome, milano, venice and changed few hotels that were more expensive than this one and surprisingly donatello was the best of all of them! not because we payed less, but simply because it was really the nicest one. the hotel is very pretty, if you are arriving with the car it's just outside that "zona limitato" area so you can avoid it and it's really close to everything. anyway florence is a small city so it's a waste of money to take hotel in the center. i can really tell that this was the best part of our whole trip.

  • Family with children
    7.8

    clean and comfortable. highchair for kids at breakfast.

  • Single
    3.2

    The hotel covers minimum accomodation requirements. Room however is large enough and basically clean. Wifi is charged at 20 euros per day. But to be fair, wifi is charged almost everywhere in Florence. Breakfast very poor.

    Charging to use the wife, poor breakfast, and old towels.

  • Group of friends
    9.2

    I liked very much the hotel all in all, the location was good, close to the train station and the city centre, silent, it had a very nice patio, it was clean, every functioned very well.

    The breakfast was a little poor and the coffee really bad

  • Couple
    8.2

    It was very central yet in a quiet area with a nice park to the front of hotel. You can walk to all the main attractions in Florence from this hotel. Also it is a short walk to the train/bus station. There are some nice cafe's nearby for a late breakfast or lunch. The staff were friendly and helpful at all times.

    There were no "do not disturb signs" to leave outside the room, which meant cleaning staff would frequently enter the room without even knocking on the door. This was inconvenient and somewhat embarrassing. Breakfast only served between 07:30 - 09:30 which meant either you get up early or get breakfast elsewhere! Not ideal if you want to lie in a bit but don't want to go elsewhere for breakfast.

  • Single
    7.0

    Close to what I wanted to see

    Charge was too high for internet and they didn't have the mid range time cards in stock (conveniently). You had to but too much time for 30 Euro or several overpriced 20 minute cards

  • Group of friends
    5.8

    Good location and value for money

    No free wifi, poor breakfast, whole hotel need rejuvenation

  • Older travelers
    7.8

    Very good balance price-location, homly looking, nice park in front, kindly staff

    Bed is too hard, not much space in eating place during cold season
