          • Family with children
            7.8

            Hotel is good situated and near to the hart of the old part of Florence. It is easy to reach the center by foot. Also the garage for the car is very good situated. Food and breakfast ambient is very good

            Hotel umbrellas is very old and broken (we have a very heavy rain during our stay)

          • Older travelers
            6.2

            Hotel is Cosy. Rooms are standard. Hotel looks better in pictures.

            Horrible breakfast spread. location is quite far from the attractions. Staff sucks big time. They have a problem if you ask the same question twice.

          • Family with children
            9.6

            Good rooms & breakfast. Outstanding staff.. Close enough to activities we wanted to do.

          • Group of friends
            6.6

            Location is good and hotel is clean and nice !

            Room are very small !

          • Group of friends
            6.6

            Lovely staff on the front desk (let us check in a little bit early) and the restaruant was amazing. Great food and the wait staff made you feel special and got to know you personally. We went back twice just because they were all so lovely and attentive. Rooms small (which is to be expected in Italy), and a little too far out of the main centre (but still walking distance)

            The wait staff at breakfast were shocking. Was difficult to get coffee as they tend to stay in the kitchen and not come out.

          • Family with children
            3.8

            Out of the city but you can go by bus. Size of the room and bed is okay.

            We arrived around 6pm and the receptionist was confused, she gave us room that was already been occupied. Good that the guest was not around when we opened the room. So better not to leave your key in the reception. No slippers in the room. Our room was hot even the aircon was on high. We checked another room on the second floor but opted to stay In our room cos the corridors in that floor were so dirty. First time to encounter bed and breakfast where you need to pay extra for the egg. The juice were not fresh but at least must be served cold not hot.

          • Family with children
            5.0

            Modern room. Free wifi.

            No tea/ coffee in room although we stayed 4 nights in triple room during winter. As I have a child with me, we pleaded with reception a few times, but they said it's only for Superior Room. Only 1 key per room and if you need to enter room separately, they will get someone to open the door. No soap dish, so place your soap on sink top. No free shuttle service. Don't expect warm, 'Personal' service at Athenaeum Personal Hotel.

          • Single
            7.0

            Friendly staff. The room was very quiet although the hotel is located on a busy street. Within a reasonable walking distance (10-15 min.) from the historic centre.

          • Single
            9.6

            The free breakfast had quite a variety of food to choose from. Hard boiled eggs, fruit, meats, cheese, croissants, etc. and individually served fresh brewed coffee or cappuccino as well as fresh juice choices. Staff was very helpful on many occasions and spoke very good English. Taxis always arrived within 3 minutes! Clean, comfortable room but small like many European hotels. I would stay again!

            We did not have a very good dinner at the restaurant. The food was overpriced and both dishes were very disappointing. I would definitely eat at any other restaurant in Florence.
