Comfortable beds, close to train/bus station and all the historical sights, helpful staff and excellent breakfast. The price made it very economical. The breakfast included hard boiled eggs, yogurt, meats and cheese, a variety of breads and pastries, cereal, fruit, espresso and coffees - all fresh and delicious. The bathroom was a little small though it did have a shower,... More

The train station is only 2 blockes away. Our tours left from the station so this convenience was imperative. Hotel Magnifico! In relationship to proximatey this is a no brainer. From the moment we arrived until our departure, everything was wonderful. Breakfast was traditional and with yummy pastries. Americano coffee or a machine that makes a variety of coffees. The...

Hotel Mario's is a lovely, gracious hotel in a perfect location in Florence. I have been there three times and have always found it clean and comfortable. Eduardo answered all my questions and made sure I had any needed transportation. I loved the breakfast room and coffee machine.

I am conflicted by my experience. The street on which the Hotel is located is narrow with little scope for stopping to offload a vehicle. It has a Hostel opposite. I was advised that parking was available on-site. This is not the case. Parking is via a garage several hundred metres away, and cars are relocated off-site somewhere. It takes... More

Hotel's location is good- not too far from the center, but yet away from tourist crowds. Rooms are tiny and outdated, I felt claustrophobic. It's clean and staff is friendly. You have to carry your luggage upstairs though. Pillows are small and uncomfortable.

Friendly place full of character. Excellent location, walking distance from station and only two minutes stroll to the Florence old town. Had a great 3 night stay in Florence, I highly recommend this hotel, even though rooms are small. Breakfasts are limited in choice compared with large hotels but still worth the money.

The breakfast was good and the rooms were spacious especially the shower which is a rare feature in Italy and our room even had a walk in closet.

What a gem of a hotel! Mario's is close to many of the key attractions and round the corner from Santa Maria Novella (central station), making it an ideal base to explore both Florence and other places in Tuscany. The staff are polite and friendly and go out of their way to provide extra information and helpful advice. Our room... More
