    Superb

    This charming hotel is perfectly located in quiet arei in the historic center, but on walking distance to all major sights. The staff was very helpful and room was clean.

    The breakfast is mostly basic, but completely enough for "recharging the batteries" and discover the city

    Fabulous

    A great location amongst rolling Tuscan vineyards! Perfect for touring the region, with a welcoming pool after a long day in the sunshine! Nearby Siena is a beautiful town.

    Would have appreciated basic tea/coffee making facilities in the rooms.The "superior" room only had a balcony in addition to the standard room which was not worth the premium paid. That was the only downside!

    Exceptional

    The Annalena is in a beautiful building near the heart of Florence, within walking distance of the Pitti Palace, Uffizi, Ponte Vecchio, Accademia. The rooms are unique, charming, and upon request guests can usually reserve a garden view. It is far enough from the heart of the city to be quiet and peaceful; a nice rest after a day's cultural immersion. Breakfast is good and the fellow guests/staff always friendly.

    This is my second time to stay at the Annalena, and I must say I felt the quality of the staff and rooms had declined just a bit. It was disappointing to have no native Italians on staff, at least when we were there. Plastic cups in the rooms, and our garden view was a window with no way on to the balcony except to step over the sill. That was fine, but it would have been nice to know it before arrival. We arrived our first day at breakfast time two years ago and were invited to have breakfast. We arrived the same time this year and when I inquired about breakfast, I was told, "we'll have to charge you." It's little differences like that which sadden me.

    The benefit of the Hotel Annalena is mainly the location- you can get to it in your car (you cannot drive in Florence, but this is on the outskirts), and because it's a 10+ minute walk from the tourist area of the city (not a bad walk) you will not have a lot of students in the hotel with you and you can see a few more sights, restaurants, and stores than you would see otherwise. When the parking garage the hotel uses was full they called another garage and arranged the car to be picked up and parked. The staff was all very friendly, and the room had a small balcony for sitting outside. All in all it was out of the bustle of the city. The breakfast, while simple, was good.

    Reviews of the hotel have called it rustic and romantic, but it fell a bit short. I didn't dislike it as much as my husband, but was a little put off by having to go through a austere corridor and up the stairs to get to the lobby (I.E. no greeter when you enter the building), many of the floor tiles were loose or missing (the missing ones in our room were covered with a thin rug), the room had no heat (the high ceiling didn't help keep it in), and the bathroom was awkward. The shower head was on the side of the tub rather than the end, and being taller than the shower head made that a little worse. Overall we were expecting a little more luxury for the money. On the first night there was no water pressure so we couldn't flush a toilet (it apparently affected all of the rooms), and the parking we expected was not available which created some aggrevation.

    Superb

    Very friendly staff and convenient to go to tourist spots. The hotel is quite old but clean. Don't expect a lift if you have big luggage as you'd have to climb up staircase to go reception desk. But despite that, everything is ok and will recommend this hotel for future stay.

    Long staircase to go to hotel entrance

    Superb

    The quiet garden area behind the hotel was very pleasant to the senses.

    There are 2 flights of stairs up to the hotel - no elevator. However the staff was very helpful in bringing our luggage up the stairs.

    The location and the historic building in which the hotel is situated

    Everything was great and the staff very welcoming but just one very minor comment - the coffee at breakfast isn't the best!

    Fabulous

    Excellent location for the centre of Florence, without the crowds or noise. Boboli gardens opposite. Palazzo Pitti only 3 mins walk, and Ponte Vecchio 5 mins. Good choice of restaurants and cool coffee,snack bars nearby. Good value. Breakfast perfectly fine and they even gave us breakfast when we were late! Helpful reception staff. Lots of character and impressive lounge and breakfast room. Balcony in our room was well used in the hot weather. However, rooms do need updating - ie lick of paint wouldn't go amiss. Bathroom and shower was good.

    I loved this hotel. You feel like you are really entering another time. It's extremely relaxed and has a very special atmostphere of another era. The staff were really nice as well. Highly recommend and I would definitely go back.

    Fabulous

    The personnel is very friendly and very helpful. The hotel itself is part of palazzo and has a historic feel. Bathroom was new.

    The room itself needs a bit of refreshment, trace of water leakage on the wall behind the door.

    Exceptional

    Me and my girlfriend absolutely loved this hotel! Granted, it's not top modern, but it's very charming and genuine. It's located in a very relaxed area, but still only a five minutes walk from the city center. In addtions, we had a nice porch outside our room, which althogh available to several rooms, was only used by us. We highly recommned this hotel - charming rooms, inspiering architecture and excellent location.

    It did not have a safe nor a refrigiator, but we were allowed to use the one in the hotel's kitchen.
