We have just returned from four days at this hotel, it was everything i could have wanted. Convenient for all the sights 5mins from Duomo, 10mins from Accademia, 20 mins from Uffizi. Staff were so helpful especially Alessandro, who gave us directions, restaurants details and sight seeing tips as we had not been to Florence before. Breakfast was great with...

We have just returned from a short stay at the Hotel Globus which we booked based on the reviews from this website. I booked the hotel over the phone as there was a problem with the website. Although I anticipated communication problems as I can't speak Italian, the man I spoke to was really nice and language was not a...

I stayed at the Hotel Globus in May 2005 as a single female traveller. The room was small but very stylish and spotless. The staff were all fantastic and very friendly. Good breakfast and excellent location for the railway station and easy reach of all Florence's attractions. I'm going back to Florence in December and will be staying there again.

We stayed in the Hotel Globus for four nights in the summer of 2002. Serena and Michele now have honorary spots in my scrapbook. The rooms were extremely clean and comfortable.

We stayed at the Globus across June and July 2005. Our superior room was nicely decorated, large and had a lovely view. There was efficient air conditioning and a large bed. The bathroom was large and tastefully tiled. There was good TV channel choice with BBC and CNN. We'll definitely stay at the Globus again!

The Globus Hotel is very nice, it is located close to the main railway station. It can take a few minutes to find the hotel as in Florence there are two different coloured numbering systems in some streets!!! The staff were very friendly and the breakfasts were excellent. It is a good base to visit all the sites in Florence,...

The hotel Globus is a modern, clean hotel in a central location. The staff were friendly and the price was reasonable. There was secure car parking available in a nearby hotel again at a reasonable rate. This was a great benefit as parking in Florence is a nightmare and usually very expensive. I would recommed this hotel

My 13-year-old nephew and I stayed at the Hotel Globus for three nights during the first week of June. The rooms are, as other reviewers have stated, very small. Nonetheless, we were quite happy with the Globus as our Florence "home" for three days. It is only one block from the Mercato Centrale which was fascinating for both of us...

I cancelled a reservation with the Hotel Globus, Florence. After nearly a year, they still refuse to refund the money. They charged for a whole week when the deposit was only one day. Their response is that they can keep the money. Do not stay here, stay at a place where they follow good business practices.

Dear Sir/Madam, are you sure you stayed at hotel Globus, Firenze, Italia? We have no trace in our archives about a similar situation, also because this is NOT the way we use to work. In Fact untill december 2004 we never used to ask for deposit for any reservation, only a credit card details were required with a penalty of...

My sister & I stumbled onto this hotel when we were looking for directions. The man at the front desk was extremely helpful. He even offered us a room at a discounted rate, 80 Euro in June, which we took. The rooms were VERY nice & much bigger than most European hotel rooms. I can't recommend this hotel enough.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hotel Globus was completely renovated in June 2016. The new reception area, located on the street level of Via Sant'Antonino, is now connected to all rooms thanks to our new elevator. The new breakfast area overlooks a small courtyard with a nice vertical garden. Our staff is a mixture of all ages, languages, cultures and countries, always smiling and willing to offer you tips on places to visit, restaurants to try. They're always there for you. For what regards our location, it is definitely one of the key features of Globus. The proximity to all the Santa Maria Novella train station and all main attractions, including the Duomo, both major museums (Uffizi and Accademia Galleries) or Ponte Vecchio, among others, makes it very easy to plan even the busiest day without the need to lose time getting from the hotel to your desired location. What makes our neighbourhood special though is definitely the Mercato Centrale, located just around the corner from here. In the morning, that is where you want to go if you're planning to buy some food to take back home, or simply want to try the famous Tuscan specialties, "trippa" and "lampredotto". Where this place shines though is the 1st floor, open from 10am until midnight. It's a big, modern open space with many restaurants, serving a variety of really delicious food. Make sure to check it out! ... more   less
