Fantastic place! During my visit to Italy, I stayed in five different cities in places all within the same price range, and Hotel Mario's was by far my favorite of all! Outstanding service from all the staff - they are very welcoming, helpful, knowledgeable, and friendly! The rooms are nice and the breakfast is great - they make you coffee (cappuccino or whatever you want) or tea to order! The location is very convenient to the train station, just a few blocks from the Market and a short walk to the Duomo, yet it is in a somewhat quieter part of town, which is great. Plenty of places to eat around there. I would recommend this place to anyone, and if I visit Florence again, I'm definitely staying there!

I spent a whole week in Florenz businesswise and was looking for a nice hotel in the centre of the city. Mario's is located very close to the station and only a few minutes of walking away from all the famous places. The owners are very caring and do everything do make someone feel at home. During my stay I had very loud room-neighbours and even that case they handled immediately and competent. I enjoyed Mario's very much and will book it again.

I was given a map of the city and directions around town. My room was very clean upon arrival and was cleaned everyday. The breakfast was good and ready a seven sharp. There are many fine restaurants close to the hotel. I ate at several of them and never had a bad meal. If I return to Florence I will definitely stay at Mario's.

Hotel tres bien situé pour qui vient à pied de la gare. Accueil très souriant, chambre propre, l'hotel, qui occupe tout le premier étage d'une maison ancienne présente un cachet certain. La chambre était très propre, idem la salle de bain, le tout petit mais fonctionnel. Attention l'insonorisation entre les chambres n'est pas terrible et si vous tombez sur un voisin bruyant, vous profitez pleinement de sa compagnie. L'hotel est à portée de tous les sites touristiques, à pied sans problème.

What a great hotel!! I have stayed in many hotels throughout Italy and Europe and this was one of my favorites!! Leonardo and Omar were so helpful and accomodating. The rooms were spacious and very clean/modern. We enjoyed sitting in the lounge/bar area having cappucinos or wine and relaxing. It is located conveniently to the train and all major attractions, stores, restaurants and bars. I highly reccommend this hotel. Hopefully we will return to Florence and return To Hotel Mario!!! You will not be disappointed!

I had such a good time at Mario's with my parents. We got a triple room, which, thankfully, had a double and a single bed. (For some reason, a lot of hotels have three single beds in their triples...) The staff was so nice, and the breakfast was fantastic-- cappuccinos, tea, pannetone (it was Christmas), buns, meats and cheeses, yogurt, and a really good selection of fresh fruit. The staff was really helpful in recommending restaurants, making reservations, and being nice to my parents, who love to chat up Italians in Spanish.

We are two catalan (Barcelona) couples middle-aged, with a long experience in travelling and we have had a good impression of our stay in Mario's. Firenze is a city which dont need special conditions of lodging because people loves to be all time outdoor, but when the tourist arrives at "home" needs a minimum of comfort and cleanliness and Mario's offers this conditions. The people we have meet were polite and respectful

We were here 3 years ago,and loved the hotel.As soon as we arrived there was quite a change. The staff was very nice. But it wasn't Marios. I ask where Mario was.And was advised the hotel had been sold. It was misppointing.But I must say the new owner is trying.They just don't have the same Feeling Mario himself gave to the hotel.I wish them luck and hope they bring back the same High Standards.As I remember from my previous visit.

I reserved 2 single rooms for 2 people. But I was so surprised to know that one of the rooms had no space for toilet and shower in the room !! So I had to go to another place( not so far form my room, though ) with toilet and shower with key. However this was very inconvenient. I asked to change the room but the first day they had no roons available. Next day, I changed to another room with toilet and bathtab in the room fortunately. This is my very first experience

We stayed in a double room May 24-28, 2007. The staff were wonderful - conscientious, enthusiastic, and always helpful. The room itself was lovely, well-equipped, spacious and actually nicer than we expected given the excellent price. The bathroom was immaculate, with a great shower and American hotel-quality towels (which were replaced daily). Breakfast was a significant cut above the usual coffee-and-croissant and served in a charming dining room. Internet access is convenient (additional charge). The staff are happy to make reservations or provide advice, and are cheerful to a fault. The location is quite good and convenient to most major sights (everything is very "walkable" in Florence in any case). If you are walking from the train station be sure to follow the hotel's directions completely about the route to take; we made a mistake and ended up hauling suitcases over many more cobblestones than necessary. The "correct" route keeps the cobblestones down to a minimum and really is only 5 minutes from the train station. Despite the hotel's proximity to the train station (and that piazza's reputation for unsavoriness), we felt very safe at all times. We would most definitely stay at Hotel Mario's again and would recommend it to anyone.

We had a good stay at Mario's this past August. The room was clean and fairly large. Breakfast was simple and coffee was excellent. Only thing we didn't like was our room was right on the street across from a hostel. This meant we had to keep our window shut at night but we had no problem with noise, though. So ask for a room back from the street if you want to leave your window open. Overall a pleasant stay and we'd definitely go back again.

Overall, stay was pretty good. There were, however, some things which detracted from the stay, such as disorganized breakfast at which one often had to ask for food to be refilled; the housekeeping was adequate, but could have been better. The hot water also ran out every morning if you didn't catch a shower by about 8:00. It came back by 10:00 or so, but it was an inconvenience. The air conditioner struggled to keep the room cool. We were there for several nights, and had some noise from the room next door one night. The street where the hotel is located has a number of hotels on it, and a hostel across the street, but it wasn't too noisy. Strongly recommend the restaurant down the street called Enzo and Pietro - we had some of our best meals in Italy there. Finally, on the day we were departing, we had a disagreement with the management about a charge on the bill. I will only say that a bit of customer service instead of temper on the part of the management would have been greatly appreciated.

Located two blocks from the train station, and a short walk from the main sights in the city. There are about 10 first-rate restaurants within 200 metres of the hotel, but reserve a table a day in advance at the popular ones. We recommend Mario's very highly.

This is not a Chain Hotel. Mario's is a small family hotel with character. It is very close to the Rail Station (but could not hear any trains!) and within easy walk of many of Florence's main attractions. We loved it. The flight of stairs at the start are daunting, but I'm sure the staff would have assisted if required. Probably not geared for small children, but a great place for older families and couples.

Some severe mold on the wall in the shower was the only thing that made our stay less than perfect. The service at the front desk more than made up for any shortcomings elsewhere.

Thank you to the staff of Mario's, I look forward to returning one day.

I have stayed at Hotel Marios twice now and have it found it to be excellent on both occasions. It has such character and the staff are extremely helpful and accommodating. The standards are high and the hotel and it's rooms immaculately presented. I will be returning to Hotel Marios in the not so distant future!

Mario's staff was the friendliest and most helpful that we encountered in Italy. The rooms were newly remodeled and very clean. The only place we got clean towels every day besides one other hotel in Rome. The location was very convenient to the train station, and within walking distance of all the major sites. Breakfast was good. Highly recommended!
