Overall a positive experience. Although Florentine bread is saltless and this might not be to the taste of many people, we would certainly have preferred fresh bread to industrial... I appreciated the proprietor's offer of 'real' coffee, rather than the 'Amerihano' machine! First time but, if there is another occasion, I would be very happy to return.

This is the second time that I stayed at the Hotel Delle Camelie. Based on my first pleasant experience three years ago I also recommended it to my sister and her husband. It is close to the train station. It is not on a main street like the via Nazionale, which makes it quiet at night. The map on the web site got us there without a problem. The room was clean, roomy and included a private bath (small but adequate). The price was low, comparable to the much smaller rooms without bath that I find in London. It has easy access to many nice eateries and Florence's sites. Breakfast was continental but more than enough to let us wake up and hold us until lunch. I strongly recommend it to those on a budget or who mainly want a place to sleep comfortably.

Good value for money.Owner is very courteous and quite reserved (which is not a minus for me) and his young collaborators were very helpful in giving hints about transportation and other Florence-related tips.Hotel surroundings are not as bad as they seemed to us at first glance. All main historical and art attractions are easily reachable within 10-15 mins. walk. Breakfast at this hotel is not as mean as someone reviewed (but to Northern european standards it might fall short).For dinner, we twice ate at Palle D'Oro - a 10 minute-walk trattoria located in a lane next to the Mercato Centrale (San Lorenzo) building: good and simple traditional Tuscanfood without getting ripped off.

I stayed here for 2 nights with my mother. I was looking for an inexpensive but clean and quiet hotel. Delle Camelie fit the bill. I was overall satisfied with my stay except for three things: (1) The shower stall was tiny. Around 2 ft by 2 ft. (2) The location was farther from the city center than I preferred and the area was deserted after dark. My mother and I felt a bit unsafe walking back late in the evening. (3) We were in a ground floor room and could hear a lot of noise from the front desk staff in the evening and the breakfast room in the morning. Other than the above the stay was fine. Staff were nice, breakfast was good, etc. I would stay again but would probably look for somewhere else first.

This place was very close to the station and easy to find. I was able to roll my luggage there with no problem even though i have a bad back. The steps were not many, but there wasn't anyone that offered to help with the luggage and after having back surgery that would have been very welcome. That said, i can totally understand that carrying luggage isn't really a part of the budget hotel experience! The people were very friendly and welcoming and helpful. I wanted a cheap place to stay for one night before my very early flight and this was a great value. It had one of those showers that is actually the bathroom (shower head rains down on toilet etc.) so if you don't like that ask what your room will have. Overall my room was clean and quiet and simple. The breakfast looked like it might be good but i got up too early to eat it. I felt safe staying there and the location again is great for being near the station. It was about at 10-15 minute walk to the San lorenzo flea market. I would recommend for someone who is on a budget, it was the least expensive place I stayed and was perfectly nice!

The hotel was close to the train station and the included breakfast was a bonus. However, the internet was not free and we had to buy a card for 15 hour internet access which was only connected once and we didn't get our money back, although the manager gave us a couple of cards to try but none worked. As is apparently the norm in Europe, no ironing facilities; no tea/coffee making facilities; no plates or cutleries; and no bar fridge were available. So be prepared if you’re travelling from Australia and expect such luxuries!!! European standards are lower than Aussie’s at least in hospitality industry!

A good 20 min walk to the hotel from the main train station in Florence. The roads are narrow and cobbled and it is a nightmare to walk with trolley bags. Shouldn't be a problem if you are traveling light. Hotel is dated but clean with spacious rooms. Conveniently located. Short walk to Accademia (David) and to the Duomo. We stayed for one night. The hotel manager was good and helpful. He charged us 1 euro for internet use (20 mins max). We were a little tensed when the manager asked us for the only set of keys to our room when we left the hotel in morning for sight-seeing. We were relieved to find that everything was in its place when we came back. Okay for price.

I had the only room in the hotel without a bathroom, located on the main floor, somewhat behind the reception (bathroom/shower is shared with the receptionist, I think). The window faced the courtyard, and it was VERY quiet. There is a sink in the room, a small TV and a double bed. I think I payed 45 euros or so. This is an excellent deal for single travelers, students, or young simple couples looking to save some money, without compromising on the quality of lodging. The room and hotel were clean, quiet, with a staff that was helpful. There is Wifi in the room if you purchase a prepaid card from the reception (good for 3 days or so). Excellent deal for a very quiet simple and nice room in Florence. Walking to main attractions takes 10-15 minutes.

This hotel is a good choice if you want somewhere quiet and only five minutes walk from the train station. The room I stayed in didn't get much light but it was very quiet, something that I specifically asked for. The room was also clean and the coolness of the air-conditioning a welcome relief after the toil of trudging around Florence in the August sun! Breakfast was a bit light (only one croissant, bread roll, jams and juice) and you'd be better off skipping the coffee! The hotel is run by Antonio, who is a softly spoken but friendly and helpful guy. Many thanks.

Hotel Delle Camelie was the best value for money of all the hotels I stayed in in Italy.It was clean, comfortable and felt safe. It is in a location that allows easy access to tourist spots and the station - all were within walking distance. Despite being close to the major sights in Florence the hotel location, in a small street, means it is quiet. The staff were friendly and gave helpful tourist information. I heartily recommend this hotel.

Hotel Delle Camilie is a gem. I chose this hotel mainly because of its location - proximity to Fortezza da Basso and the Santa Maria Novella train station in Florence where I attended an international meeting for 5 days. It is within 10 min walk from the train station, not very easy to find if you do not have a detailed street map. The hotel owner Antonio is an English-speaking, quiet nice Italian man (local) who stays during the day (7:30 am to 6 pm or so) and readies breakfast (coffee or tea, juice, croissants and jams) for guests. In the evening, five college students take turn to keep watch. All of them were very helpful. The room I booked was huge, with a double and a twin beds. The only shortcomings were the small bathroom and inconsistent supply of hot water in the shower after 7-7:30 am. The maid forgot to change our sheets on a few days, but we were totally fine with that. Wireless internet signal was not great, but Antonio charges only 1 euro per 30 min use of his computer in the lobby (available most of the time). The room we're in was very quiet, and the beds comfortable. One other guest told us she had roaches coming out of the shower/sink drains in her bathroom, but I could not verify this (she gladly stayed for three weeks despite that). Florence is a small town and one can cover all major sight-seeing places by walking. For the very reasonable price we paid, I think Hotel Delle Camelie is a great choice.

The door to the main entrance says to ring the bell, but try the door first! It was open, and I was embarrassed. The main concierge spoke English well, and was very friendly and welcoming. The room was a bit small, but there was room to move around, and the shower was nice (although you have to put your shampoo etc on the floor). The bed was comfy, although it looks a bit like a fold-out couch. The blinds are a bit tricky - look for the strap on the right (pull down to open, and pull out and up to close!). Oh, there is no hair dryer, so bring your own if you need one! Apart from taking a taxi to and from the train station, we were able to walk everywhere else in Florence we wanted to visit. Be sure not to miss the statue of David. Your map to the museum it's housed in may fail to mention that the door is on the side (in case you have trouble finding it). Oh, and the breakfast is very nice - he brings you espresso and steamed milk for your latte, and the bread was fresh.

After viewing the comments, I worried a bit about the hotel location, being afraid that it is hard to reach by foot. It turned out that I overworried. Although it is not right in city center, everything is within confortable walking distance. Besides this area is full of restaurants, good for your quest for italian food. The ower, Antonio, is extremely friendly and helpful. When we asked about train schedule to Pisa, he assured he would do it for us. There was 4-page printout of train schedule waiting for us on the counter when we returned hotel in the evening, so worry free! For sure he speaks fluent English. If you are looking for a simple yet secure and comfort stay in Florence, I highly recommend you Hotel Delle Camelie.

Well, it was just OK. Nothing much to highlight both negative or positive. The decoration is old and seems to need redecoration. The conspicious thing about room is the tall ceiling 4 meter or even may be higher so it gives very spacious feeling. The location is close to train station and a big park where there is a flea market on Sundays biweekly and is next to Piezza Independenta and not so close but also not far from main squares, attraction areas. Rooms were clean and breakfast OK, coffee was real nice and also fresh juice :). Staff was alright too, and answers questions raised to them and helpful. And despite being next to a busy road it is not noisy (1 block behind it). I guess it is one of the options in this price range.

The gentleman at the front desk was helpful and they even had a service come and pick up your car to park it in a garage and then deliver it when you went to leave. There is no parking on the street and the near by garages were expensive, this worked out well.

Friendly helpful staff. Good restaurant suggestions. Especially Guelfa (very close) and Centro Poveri. Good location for many attractions and bus. Short walk to railroad station. Don't be put off by dated appearance of the lobby and rooms. Rooms one flight up no elevator.

This was an excellent, small hotel, ideally suited for walking into the centre of town. Price-wise, it was excellent value for money. We would definitely stay there again.

Antonio is a good manager as he speaks English well. The rooms have high ceilings the bed comforable. The hotel is old and the wood furnishings have character. Antonio called a tour company for me and i spent and entire day visiting many cities and towns in Tuscany.I must add the hotel was very clean.

This is a wonderful little establishment, just off the beaten track but very close to everything. The staff is outstanding and totally service-oriented. Great value and a very good price during our three day stay. The only noise (and it can get very noisy in the tourist areas of Florence) came from a neighbour's dog. We never saw him but he had a very significant bark which he used on several occasions during our stay. Never, however, early in the morning.

This was my first stay at Hotel Delle Camelie. I was visiting my daughter in Florence and she lives right upstairs, so the location was perfect for me. Also very convenient to the train station and a quick jaunt from the airport. Within walking distance of all the great sites of Florence. The hotel is basic, not fancy or luxurious, but who wants to be in their room in Florence? It was clean and the operator, Antonio, is a gem, a truly wonderful human being - nice, helpful, friendly. I stayed for 2 full weeks and never tired of talking with him. Everyone else was nice, too. There's a nice little patio outside to sit out on in nice weather, if you do hang out around the hotel. I wholeheartedly recommend the hotel for any traveler who doesn't insist on 4 stars. The only problem I had the whole 2 weeks was that the lamp near the bed had a loose plug and would cut in and out some. I'm sure Antonio would have fixed it if I'd complained, but I didn't.

The Delle Camelie was great. On a quiet street within walking distance of the train station and basically everything else in Florence. The manager was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was the typical European breakfast: coffee and several kinds of bread. The room was small, but clean. Overall it was well worth the price.

Easy walk from the station and within easy walking of all the major attractions in Firenze. In a quiet street with a terrific and cheap little cafe directly opposite. Great for pizza, pasta and groceries. Simple beakfast of coffee and rolls.Top little trattoria around the corner.

It was not bad on the whole but the towels were not changed every day and the space was rather small. Still it is rather close to the station and to the center of the city and we could explore it by foot.

The hotel is in an old building, so the rooms are really big (and high). Everything was clean and personnal was correct. Location is good, you can walk to the Doumo, Piaza della Signoria, Ponte Vecchio and train station. Beside the Galleria degli Uffizi I recommend the Palazzo Vecchio, and the gardens of the Palazzo Pitti.

Highly recommended for its character and welcome. Not too far from station, and since Florence is such a compact city, not far from the major attractions either. Also, situated in a more residential area, so perfect for getting to sleep etc.

We loved our stay at Delle Camelie, mainly due to its owner signor antonio - a very warm-earted and welcoming gentleman, who helped us at every occasion. The hotel has everything a 2-star "soggiorno" could offer. the only drawback was that there were no food stores in the vicinity (the closest within 15 min. walk from it). However, there was a fine bakery right opposite with a nice pizza and calzone, and the railway station just a few blocks from the property.

Excellent! Really nice staff, only 10-15 mins to center and everything was so easy to reach. I would say that you should probably get a taxi to the hotel from the station if you arrive at night as it's too dark to follow instructions properly when you're tired as i was - taxis are great and not a rip off as they are on a meter. Try to ask where to go in Italian as the taxi drivers are one of the few lovely people who didn't speak English. Great value for money. We had a massive room and breakfast was nice, even took it to my room when i had a lazy morning. Clean towels and bedding. Couldn't ask for more for the price. Would highly recommend. (Get the number 7 to Fiesole, it's a wonderful small village in the mountains with a great view).

Hotel is a short walk from the train station and about 15-20 minutes walk from the center. Very friendly staff. I had a single room with shared bathroom, which was right next to my room and always very clean. Considering the price of accommodation in Florence, Hotel Delle Camelie is good value. I spent four nights there and was quite comfortable.

Delle Camellie is a hotel that has very good location. Walking distance to the major sites. Car parking available in the street outside the hotel, not much traffic. When walking to major sites, careful with some areas. Walk fast, hide your camera and everything is fine. For that price, I would look somewhere else.

My mother and I took a trip through Italy and stayed here during our stay in Florence. The walk from the train station is a little intimidating, but once we got to the hotel, we felt very safe. It seems a little bit of a distance from the major sites, such as the Uffizi and Ponte Vecchia, however it was about 4 blocks from the Academia. The neighborhood was very quiet, but hardly any restaurants near our hotel. The kind older gentleman that ran the hotel was extremely helpful and friendly and kind. I felt safe having him watch the door. I didn't feel very safe in the evenings, so we stayed in. The place was very clean and comfortable and the breakfast is typical for Italy. We would definetely stay here again if we came back.

The hotel staff were friendly and the room ok but the fact that the room did not have a bathroom was definitely a minus. The surrounding area was quiet but I would not recommend single travelers to come back to the hotel late in the evening as it did not feel safe. The train station is close by, only a ten minute walk away. The breakfast served consisted of a piece of white bread with jam and coffee or tea.
