              6.2

              The staff is friendly

              Not easy to find, very old hotel.

            • Single
              4.6

              Location was great.

              I didn't not enjoy my stay at all. The room was incredibly small - almost impossible to move around in, the air conditioning was horrible and I had to wait a night until they could get me a fan and once I got the fan it was even harder to move around in the room, the entire room smelled horrible - a wet moldy fragrance, and the bathroom smelled especially bad - probably because with the flat floor, most of the water from the shower just sits around and/or spills out the door into the room where it ferments for days and days. Do not stay at Hotel Basilea.

            • Family with children
              8.2

              It is very well located.

              The water pressure of the shower wasn´t very strong.

              The hotel staff was nice, and the location was very good.

              The bathroom smelled horribly, and was unusable.

            • Group of friends
              6.6

              So close to metro, train staition and museums. Breakfast was so good.

              We had a itch problem maybe because of the sheets. But absolutely because of the hotel. Because when we had left from there, it was solved.

            • Single
              10.0

              The room was big and furniture was clasical and classy.

            • Group of friends
              7.4

              Good location only 5 minutes from the railway station and a short 10 minute walk to the town centre. Big, clean and comfortable room with a terrace. Staff were very helpful and friendly (except one particular receptionist who was particularly grumpy and rude but the other helpful receptionists made up for him). Hotel is nothing fancy but fine for a few days and well priced in comparison to other hotels in Florence.

              Only the grumpy receptionist... All else was fine for a budget hotel.

            • Couple
              6.2

              I liked Hotel Basilea's price, which was quite fair. Its location is also good, taking only a five - ten minute walk to Duomo. There is free wi-fi in the lobby which you can get it in room 105 as well.

              The breakfast needs some not-sweet croissants and some nutella. If someone would bring their own nutella (which I didn't), they would rock the place. The neighbourhood mostly consists of immigrants, so those who want to be "in the heart of italy" might be disappointed. The rooms need better air conditioning.

              Friendly staff, overall standard and cleanliness.

              Noisy room doors. Especially annoying when you have a group of travellers as neighbors.

              Location

              Hotel gave us a room at the anex where a group of young children were staying for a school trip. They were making terrible noises in the evening & early morning running around the corridor banging on each others' doors & talking loud (almost screaming) in the communal area. I had a word with some children, but they did not take it seriously. We asked the hotel to change the room next day, but the reception only said they would have a word with their teachers. They were making terrible noise again from early morning next day, which kept waking me up and could not get back to sleep for a while. Feeling tired we decided to have an early night on that day (we travelled to Venice that day) rather than going out in the evening. Bed linen smelt bad too. Fruit juice for breakfast tasted horrible (diluted with water). I would not recommend the hotel.

              The central position: very close to the train station and to San Lorenzo area.

              I had a single room, there wasn't enough space to do anything but sleeping. Moreover the air conditioned was broken.
