Had a very enjoyable experience at this hotel. Modern, clean hotel with a large bathroom and double bed. Was able to walk to the hotel (while dragging my suitcase) from the train station without any difficulty (about a 15 minute walk). You are then fairly close walk to all the attractions and restaurants through quiet safe neighbourhoods. Breakfast is included, and is everything you need to start your day (including bacon and scrambled eggs). Would stay here again.
This Hotel was a little further from the core but close enough to walk everywhere. With the heatwave that was on at the time of our holiday, we found ourselves taking a taxi back to hotel after a busy day. I am sure if the weather had been different, we would have been ok to walk everywhere. I would recommend this hotel for its service, room and cleanliness. The Breakfast was good and more than adequate to start our day.
Located in a quiet area with a short walk to the attractions. Clean and fairly comfortable with decent sized bathroom. The buffet breakfast has the basics - nothing more. There is a restaurant and bar on site but I didn't try them.
"Centrally located in beautiful Florence"
Nicely appointed, clean rooms. Pleasant and accommodating staff. We found this hotel to be a welcome oasis and great location for exploring the sites in and around this artfully beautiful and historic city. A pleasant and tasty breakfast fueled all our adventures touring downtown and the wonderful Tuscany wineries. San Gimignano towers provide one of the best views of the region. The Athenaeum Hotel provided us very satisfied visitors the perfect refuge to relax and recharge for the next adventure to come.
Once we found it after walking around in circles from the station (suggest taxi). The welcome was friendly and efficient from Jacob(') at the front desk. Rooms aren't particularly spacious but as we weren't there for sitting in the room it was ideal. Clean with nice crisp bed linen and fluffy towels. Requested an additional pillow and a bath robe which were delivered promptly. Breakfast was more than sufficient with a selection of hot and cold buffet! Staff were always on hand to offer assistance too. Piedro from the restaurant and bar was friendly and in spite of being a little short staffed provided a really good service. Interesting to talk to too! He understand our Yorkshire humour at least! The front desk were a fountain of information and gave good directions and help with regard to taking a tour and taxis! On a slightly negative side the bathrooms and carpets were on the tired side and perhaps need either upgrading or a deep clean but it wasn't a great concern. It would have been helpful if tea/coffee makers were placed in rooms with such is the way in European city hotels! Especially given no room service at certain times. The hotel caters to large groups of tours giving quick turn rounds but this didn't effect us at all! We would stay again.
