    We had a clean, comfortable triple room. Breakfast was decent, by American standards, which after living in Italy for a while, we know can be hard to come by. The location is an easy 7ish minute walk from the smn train station. It does have a/c and free wi-fi was easy to access from our room.

    The front door did not have a deadbolt, and the way it locks, people cannot open it from the outside without a key. However, from the inside all you have to do is pull down on the door handle and you are out. This is not convenient or safe when you are travelling with a toddler. The bathroom door stuck a couple of times, and once we could not get it open from the outside at all. The front desk attendant had a brusque demeanor and made me feel every second how much I had inconvenienced her, having her come upstairs to open the door. In fact, she was quite rude about it and this marred what would otherwise have been a pleasant stay.

    The location and friendliness of staff was what I liked best about this hotel.

    I didn't like the room we got in the hotel. It was dark and very small. We even had to put the lights on during the day because it was so dark. The bathroom was equally small. The airconditioning could not be switched on as apparently the city does not allow hotels to switch it on before the 1st June.

    Small and Friendly. Good staff. Good position could walk to all the key sites in Florence. Would stay there again.

    Breakfast room a bit small

  • Group of friends

    The location was excellent, close to train station and sightseeing places. It was great having fridge and safe in the room.

    The elevator was not on ground floor, we had to climb one story to reach it. The lighting in the bathroom near the mirror should be brighter.

    I must say that the welcome we received by the receptionist was wonderful. I believe it was Elena, a yoing Italian woman with a terrific sense of humour who made us feel very much at home. She bent over backwards to help us. The breakfast was perhpas our best on our holiday and we enjoyed it very much. A superb location as the hotel was a short walk from the rr station and easy to find. Also close to many important attractions. We felt safe coming and going.

    Friendly personnel. Breakfast ok but not exceptional.

    We had a problem in the bathroom with the radiator leaking because of the airco but this was repaired the same day.

  • Couple
    8.8

    Rooms, specially the ones on the third floor which are newly refurbished, very modern and comofortable are highly recommended. The price was good and the service was great. Specially friendly was the attention of Guido at the front desk. He recommended us places to go, restaurants to visit in the area, etc. Buffet breakfast was included, it was ok but I have no complaints considering that you are paying a very good price for the accommodation!

  • Family with children

    Very friendly staff. Superb location within easy walking distance of all main sights. Had asked for view onto street and got it, and street and hotel were quiet at night. Bedroom mid price range (for Florence!) but still had safe and minibar. Nice waiting area where we met our friends.

    Rather strange bedroom with pillar in middle. All slightly dusty and in need of renewing. Breakfast just ok but a bit dreary. Hadn't taken laptop so didn't make use of free wifi and there was no common computer available for guests to check facts or essential emails.

    Very clean hotel, and the location is good too! Good restaurant nearby

    the internet is a little bit slow

  • Family with children
    7.4

    Quite clean and comfortable hotel. Three stars status is adequate. Continental breakfast is pretty ok. Personnel is friendly, people at reception speak English well. The hotel is located in the old city, near Santa Maria Novella, and almost all places of interest are within walking distance. It takes about 10 minutes walk to get to the hotel from the railway station/buses to the airport.

    We had a very pleasant stay at hotel unicorno. Easy walk from the station and in a central location to all key sites. We paid a little more for a superior room which has been newly furnished to a high standard. Very welcoming, clean room, nice breakfast. Highly recommended.

    Nice and clean room, very good location in town and near to carparking, although the parking is quite expensive. Friendly staff.

  • Group of friends

    Hotel unicorn is a small hotel an old building with character rooms are a good size except for the top floor some of my party said they had smaller rooms although I didn't see them myself. The breakfast is typically continental The most redeeming feature is its location,the station is a short walk, (ask at the tourist information office near the station for directions) and everything in the old part of Florence is in easy walking distance.

    No Bar
