Ask for the 4th floor or go to the common terrace on this floor. You have there a unique view on Florence! We stayed several times in the center of the city. This hotel outside the center is quiet unique, with space, a quiet surrounding and a lovely garden. Ther are four different bus lines to the center, just ten...

This is an old property outside of Florence. The food was very bad. The rooms were small and basic. Free internet. There are many better hotels in Florence within its price range. Not a good choice.

I loved this hotel. Very quaint, a long walk up the steps to the hotel. We were on the 4th floor with a balcony and a breath taking view of Florence. The 4th floor had a common terrace that we hung out in with the kids, You could see centeral Florence. Breakfast was typical, beds comfortable. Would stay here again.

I quite enjoyed my stay at the President Hotel, which is located on a quiet hill outside the center of Florence. The hotel staff was very friendly. Moreover, the rooms were ok; very clean but for the rest nothing special. I would say more 3* than 4*. The hotel in general and the rooms in particular have quite a retro...

When we got to the hotel and after doing the check-in we noticed that the rooms were not like the ones showed on the website. As you can see in the pictures we took of the room, there are no resemblances between both rooms. The furniture was quite old, the bed sheet was split, the heating was not working and...

My friend and I had a horrible experience at this hotel when we accidentally got locked in a stairwell that we thought would lead down to the lobby. After going through the unmarked, unlocked double doors outside of our room, we descended the stairs but soon realized that it lead to another part of the building that was being renovated...

We stayed for two nights. Clean and comfortable. Very hard to find, directions confusing. Breakfast filling. View from hallway spectacular, worthy of taking photos. Front desk helpful, recommended a fantastic restaurant for dinner. A good walk into town. Nothing elaborate. Would stay again

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The President Hotel is a classic style hotel, with modern technology and every comfort. It’s an ancient palace of 1869 restored and turned into a hotel in 1986, located near Piazza della Libertà on so-called avenues of Florence, absolutely close to the historic city center and the congress site of Fortezza da Basso, Palazzo dei Congressi and Palazzo degli Affari. The cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore is just at 15 minute walk away and the central train station Santa Maria Novella is only 3 kms far or 10 minutes by car. ... more   less
