"Mostly very good."
Room was comfortable but small. Breakfast very good and service very good. The only aspect that marred the experience was the insufficient drainage from the shower, which meant that one to interrupt your shower to allow water to drain away before the bathroom is flooded.
"Weekendtrip to Firenze"
The Montebello Hotel was a good choice and we enjoyed our stay in Firenze very much. The Hotel is nicely located and offered everything we expected from it. However,the cost for the parking in the hotel is just ridiculous and this gave our good overall experience at the Montebello a slightly bitter taste unfortunately as the hidden cost felt like a rip off finally. We still recommend the Montebello but also to inform yourselves about alternative parking options.
"CULTURE DAYS IN FLORENCE"
I stayed 5 nights with a friend at the Hotel Montebello Splendid for a cultural break from 6 - 11 March. Florence had been on my wish list for a very long time. We particularly chose an 'out of centre' hotel as we wanted a quiet yet convenient location and we were thrilled with our choice. A really lovely hotel just a 15 minute walk alongside the river Arno to the Ponte Vecchio. Our request at booking for a room on the first or second floor overlooking the garden was met and we were allocated Room 113 one floor up from reception. Perfect! A good sized, well appointed room, with lovely bathroom with Jacuzzi bath and shower. Huge really comfortable bed and pillows. The unexpected bonus was a super sized balcony. The staff were kind and helpful, the reception staff especially so. We only ate in the hotel on one evening, and whilst the food was good, portions were on the small side, particularly for the price which was high. Breakfast was good and varied with most of the usual buffet selection and hot food too, eggs, tomatoes etc. except that it was kept rather lukewarm which was disappointing. Of great shock to us was the additional charge of 6 EUROS for fried egg or omelette. I have never before experienced this in any other hotel, 5 star or otherwise. Wonderful choice of bread. All meals served in a most attractive room overlooking patio and garden. Lovely large comfortable lounge again with direct access to the garden. Yummy complimentary snacks of olives, nuts etc served with all drinks. Strawberry Bellinis to be recommended !! Another surprise was the total lack of availability of any food ( not even a sandwich ) when we checked in at 11.30pm. Admittedly we were 4 hours flight delayed, but were told that room service had ceased and the kitchen had closed. That's not what I would expect from a 5 star rated hotel. Overall a fabulous hotel though in my opinion not quite deserving of its 5 stars for the reasons given above - a superb 4 star would be more appropriate. However, I have no hesitation in recommending the Montebello Splendid and would most definitely stay there again.
10 minutes walking from Florence railway station,beautiful large rooms, suitable to accommodate 3 adults, good breakfast,well furnished hotel and rooms,good strong wifi, manager and staff kind and helpful.
