    Near Railway station and Centre of Florence

    Noisy City Centre Hotel

  • Older travelers
    4.6

    Location to train station. Although I would now book another hotel in the same area before booking the Hotel Diplomat or any b&h Hotel.

    There is nothing good about this hotel!! Selected this Hotel because it was rated as a four star hotel with no pets. This hotel is nowhere near a four star hotel under any rating system. Perhaps a two star hotel if it was rated under a generous star rating system. Suggest Booked.net customers read the negitive reviews about this hotel before they consider this hotel (they are all true).

  • Group of friends

    EXCELLENT breakfeast buffet, VERY comfortable rooms, SO close to the train station and to basicly anything you must visit in florence

    very little tv channels

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    The room was very neat and clean. Breakfast was excellent, really a treat. The staff was very helpful, to the extent that I got my i-phone charged at the reception . I would recommend Diplomat to anyone travelling to Florence, which I would recommend as a "must see" city when in Italy.

  • Family with children
    5.0

    The location is good for travellers by train. Not far from the city center. Convenient for shopping. Good restaurants and bars near by. Wi- fi in the whole building.

    Bad breakfast. Really bad and very uncomfortable bathroom! Not good enough for 4 stars hotel. Not satisfied with it.

  • Older travelers

    good location a few steps from Duomo room comfortable and quiet good breakfast

  • Older travelers

    Initially had problems with A/C fan but it was fixed. Breakfast was a real bargain and good.

    Wi-Fi connection was intermittent at best.

  • Group of friends

    1) The hotel is very bad . 2) Rooms are very small 3) Hotel staff are very slow .

  • Couple
    3.2

    The woman behind the desk was rude, but it was funnz

    Being told our room was ready, going to our room with the maid in the middle of cleaning, coming back 20 minutes later and finding a condom wrapper under the bed.

  • Older travelers
    9.6

    next right to the station, very convenient, to and from other cities, to and from shopping, to and from sightseeing locations. the room is big and clean. breakfast has many choices. i feel comfortable staying there with one of the supper market on the left and one just accross the street. it is worth for your money. i have stayed at 3 different hotel while in italy ane the rate is almost the same but i find this hotel is far more better.

    good location, cleanliness, size of the room including toilet.

  • Older travelers
    6.2

    Location for travel connections, shopping and sightseeing were very good.

    The problem about the hotel is that we couldn't get a hot shower in the evening.

  • Couple
    8.8

    The good breakfast and near to train station.

  • Single
    5.8

    Location was good, bed was comfortable, shower had good water pressure.

    Air conditioning either did not work or was not intuitive. Hotel staff, although they dealt with the issues, were not sympathetic to complaints I made about that or other problems such as hot water not working, dirty sheets on the bed, balcony door left wide open. Instead they were defensive and did not even apologise, nor did they offer any gesture such as putting me in a different room. I had to ask for a discount and even then they made it seem like I was really putting them out. I would not stay here again based solely on the service.

  • Group of friends
    9.2

    The room was amazing ,the staff were all so friendly and helpful ,i loved every minute of my stay ,defintely i ll go back.:)))thanks xx

    IT S NOT THAT I did not liked but i would loved to have another mirror ,apart from the one in the bathroom and bathropes:)))but stilll it was good
