“Great value for money!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2012

Nice hotel, with quite basic rooms, but just all I need. About five minutes walk to piazza del duomo and even closer to the main train station firenze S.M.N.. You just walk to the hotel. Busy street close by, but I haven't heard any noise yet (at 2nd floor though).
Staff at reception speak excellent english. Heating can be regulated in your room, but does not work before 7:30pm, don't know what time it stops again for the day, was still working at 10:00 am. Shutters to keep light out at night.
Breakfast is simple, but good quality, bread, sweet croissants, ham, cheese, jam, chocolate spread.
Bed is comfortable enough for a bed that isn't my own, not too soft nor too hard.
If you have any electrical appliances you need a special plug. Even for me (from continental europe) the sockets are different from home, just smaller holes. I bought a plug at the 99 cent store close to the San Lorenzo church, not far from the hotel.
Free Wifi, even working well on the top floor.
There will be better hotels, but they don't come cheap in Firenze. I found hotel Nizza good value for money.

Tip: cinema odeon screens films in orginal language for only €6. As I was travelling on my own, I enjoyed watching a movie at night. The theatre itself is magnificent.

My wife and I stayed at this hotel in November 2011. We chose it because we had already been there a couple of years earlier. It is not a luxurious place but every basic thing you need is there, old furniture but with style, clean, breakfast good for this category of hotel. The staff is very friendly, Michele always ready to help with directions. More than perfect location - this hotel is midway between the railway station and the great cathedral in the centre of the city, the Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore, a 5-minute walk. Would definitely stay there again, given a chance to travel, looking forward to it!

My family and I stayed in Hotel Nizza after staying at another hotel in Florence the night before. We had a great experience at Hotel Nizza. The location is very convenient to the train station. The hotel offers free wi-fi and breakfast as well. The staff was friendly and helpful. The hotel was clean. We would definitely stay here again!

Just stayed a couple of nights in Florence on our way from Rome to Venice. Our first night was at another hotel and we had to check out b/c it was a little disappointing. Then, we stumbled upon the Hotel Nizza. How nice! The staff was unbelievably nice, playing with my son and treating him like he was a king. They spoke to him about his stuffed "Pooh" bear and how he was a perfect gentleman. They made us feel very welcome. The room was much larger and cleaner than the prior hotel and it included breakfast & wifi in the price! The location is perfect, just steps from everything and being on a side street with little foot traffic. Very nice, would pick this hotel immediately if we are back in Florence! Thank you, Hotel Nizza!

Room Tip: No elevator lift, must climb stairs so keep that in mind if you have luggage.

I visited Florence as a tutor with a group of art students, and we stayed at the Hotel Nizza. For an educational trip, the location was very good indeed: near to the railway station and in the midst of all the glorious beauty of Florence. The stunning Santa Maria Novella is a couple of minutes away on foot. It's possible to walk to practically anywhere in Florence, and the Nizza was very convenient for all the sights. The rooms are basic, but clean and adequate. There were rather a lot of stairs - my room was on the top floor. The breakfast was very simple - perhaps a little too simple. However, we were not there for a luxury break. The desk staff were polite. The overall impression I have of the hotel is of a sort of Pension - certainly not luxurious but for a no-frills base, it was ideal. Don't miss visiting the Santa Maria Novella Perfumery - it's called the Officina Profumo Farmaceutica di Santa Maria Novella, and it's on the Via della Scala, 16. It doesn't look like a shop or a museum from the street. But do look out for it. They still use the recipes that the monks used for hundreds of years; beautiful lotions and scents - unmissable; expensive though!
