              • Couple
                10.0

                Very good location (close to center) though quiet. Rooms and halls nicely decorated with antique staff. Very nice gentlemen on the desk. Has parking but could require prior reservation.

                Nothing - close to perfect.

              • Group of friends
                7.4

                A quiet hotel with a nice garden, in 15 minutes walking distance from SMN train station and in 15-20 minutes from Ponte Vecchio and other places in the historic centre of Florence

                the coffee from hotel coffee machines could have been better

              • Older travelers
                7.8

                Calm, quite tranquil, yet in the middle of historic city centre. Good atmosphere, nice architecture, tasteful decoration.

                The breakfast is monotone and repeats day after day.

              • Older travelers
                5.4

                Close to the river side and with great choice of food within 5 -8 minutes walk.

                Very limited choice for breakfast . The TV set is too old not able to function properly . Also only one English channel is available in the TV but nfortunately the only one English channel is not connected well .

              • Older travelers
                7.4

                We liked the brown bread at breakfast and also the computer with broadband access. The proximity to the train station was also positive. We chose the hotel because of the garden but unfortunately the weather was not enough to allow us to sit outside.

              • Group of friends
                10.0

                nice building. convenient to railway ,sights river,shops--ideal for me. polite and helpful staff with a warm welcome. in short a very positive experience.

              • Older travelers
                7.4

                Good premises of hotel, good room, nice staff and good breakfest

                a little bit far from historic centre

              • Group of friends
                6.2

                Close to the centre of Florence, 15 minute walk to the centre. Plumbing was very loud in the room above and frequently woke my freind during the night. Room was reached up a 'private' concrete staircase - could not have been used by disabled guests or those with a young child as the entrance to the room and the bathroom where between a steep set of stairs (sounds odd as it was)

                Not sure if it is the culture in Italy, but the staff could not manage even the vaguest of smiles or greetings. I think they may have preferred not having guests getting in the way of running the hotel. I would recommend it for its location, and it was nice and clean - if the price is not expensive.

              • Group of friends
                6.6

                Generally a nice hotel, location is about 10-15min frm the smn railway station but very close to the river, if u hv enough time to visit Florence, it's a good place to stay due it's nice to walk along the riverside. Nice guy in reception, a free internet room although the pc looks like a pc existing a decade ago,but it helped me out to find info I need, very helpful and i'm grateful to it. living room is beautiful, room is very big, bathroom is clean, breakfast also good, the only thing not so good was that the room was a little bit smelly...but still recommend as the rate is reasonable

              • Group of friends
                6.2

                They had a quadruple room which we were looking for. Further, it turned out to be a quite place, away from usual crowded/noisy touristic spots.

                The staff can be, and should be, much more guest-friendly and tourist-friendly than what they seem to be at present.

              • Older travelers
                6.6

                The hotel is OK but it is old and the furniture needs update. The rooms are big and it is clean. The breakfast is very good.

                The front desk doesnt speak English and it is hard to comunicate. They did not help us and made our stay not very pleasant.

              • Family with children
                5.8

                Restaurants in the area of the hotel were good for us at the end of each long day. Friendly staff. Not far to walk to attractions and shopping.

                We could not close the windows and were terribly bothered by mosquitoes every night.Bathroom floor is the shower floor.

                The only decent thing about Hotel Ariele was the location in relation to the center. You could easily walk, or catch cab for like €8 to €10; maybe even €15. Just depends if you get one of the scandolous cab drivers in Florence or not, so be careful.

                I booked a "quadruple" room, but it was simply a "double" room withe two more beds thrown in there. Actually the beds weren't even in there upon arrival. When I asked about bigger rooms, the guy at the front said "that is just a formality, this is how we do it here. Yet the next morning leaving breakfast I saw the housekeepers cleaning a "triple" room (3 "normal" beds). Also, parking is a joke at this hotel. The guy told me they have to park the cars, guest can't; again it's a "formaility" as he explained it. I just wasn't comftorable with that. Overall value for the money was very poor.

                The location and the buffet breakfast.

                No fridge and no easy availability of cold water during hot summer weather. Also didn't appreciate the visitor tax although it has nothing to do with individual hotel.
