Located near the Florence train station and an only 10-minute walk into the centre, Globus Hotel is basic and clean, ideally located for exploring this small pedestrian-friendly city.
Cleanroom, free wifi, free continental breakfast, in-room mini/bar/fridge, air-conditioned rooms, and friendly staff. It serves its purpose and is excellent value for a short stay in Florence.
There are a few things that did lower my score, but I can’t complain about my overall stay. My room (208) was at the back of the building and when the central air system turned on was like a rocket taking off, though after a few loud burst soon adjusted to the sound. The in-room TV was small and the sound poor and tinny – however your visiting this fabulous city so staying in your room is just for relaxing – this is not a city to be watching TV in your room.
Overall it met my needs for a short break, and for the price was a great deal for a stay in Florence. It is no-frills but clean, a good budget option for a short city break in a fabulous city.
