Porta Faenza has a great location, less than 10 minute walk from the train station. My single room was very cozy, and the breakfast very nice. An excellent value for the price. I will stay here again when I return one day.

Pros: Breakfast is included and was good. Walking distance to the train station. Cons: Our room smelled like sewage. When I asked why, they said they just fixed something and to let the water run before use. We did, but that did not mitigate anything....More

Nice boutique hotel and close to everything. Staff is friendly but not comfortable with English speaking. Quiet and very clean with nice sized rooms. No satellite tv for English. Very close to train and most attractions in the old Florence area. Pleasant stay.More

Dear HoneyShawnee, we thank you for your review. Your feedback is very important for us. We would like to inform you that all the reception staff speaks English and also other languages, it's very strange to hear that for you they aren't comfortable with English...More

Great location with a garage at the end of the street (€26 per day). Very nice room (303) with everything you could possible need. Great breakfast. If you're planning on a few days in Florence this is a great base. Lots of resonably priced restaurants...More

My son frequently took the train from Venice to Florence. Very easy and affordable. The hotel is only a short walk from the station.
