Guest reviews for Montebello Splendid Hotel

5 out of 5

A real nice cozy atmosphere all around!

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
This was the hotel we had booked for our first 2 nights in Florence and we were so pleased. Our room was very nice with AC, I loved the decorative wallpaper used. It was very clean, staff was super helpful. It is very clean. All the major tourists areas in Florence were not too far to walk, all under an hour but hotel is actually on a more quiet street which is nice though. Train station was about 10 minutes walking. May want to bring your own 3 way adapter to charge or plugs things in with. The light switches are controlled by your key card. Has a nice looking restaurant there, food was just ok. Breakfast buffet looked nice too just different than buffet in U.S. Had a nice relaxing time at this hotel, wanted to take the mattress home too. Would love to stay here again someday.

Excellent place to stay in Florence

Pros: Close restaurants, Quiet
Cons: No free Internet
On our recent trip to Italy (4/11) we stayed in Rome, Venice and Florence. Having never been to Italy before and not speaking the language we opted to play it safe and go the chain hotel route in Rome and Venice (Marriott Flora-Rome and Hilton Molino Stucky-Venice). For our last stop we decided to "get adventureous" and went seaching for a upscale boutique hotel in Florence. We searched the reviews on Tavelocity and settled on the Montebello Splendid Hotel. This turned out to be an EXCELLENT choice. Beautiful place. Very, very nice people who knew enough english to help out with our every need. The food was excellent. We thought the price was reasonable for an upscale hotel. Everything we wanted to see was within in walking distance. If you are arriving by train, the hotel is only a 5 minute cab ride away. Only two minor issues that might be helpful. First of all take a power adapter with you if you are from a Country with 110 volt power. This hotel unlike others we visited ONLY had 220 volt outlets. Second minor item... Their rooms are key controled. Meaning when you leave the room you take your card key out of the slot on the wall and it shuts off all the electrical devices, inclduding the air conditioning. When you come back a couple hours later the room is hot. Not sure why, but their AC units took hours and hours to get the room back down to a semi-comfortable tempature. Solution, get a second key and leave one in the slot while you are out and about. I have been Platinum with Marriott for over 10 years so I get the whole Hotel/hospitality thing. Without question we would hightly recommend this hotel to any traveler.

Lovely, lovely hotel

Our stay at the Montebello Splendid was more than splendid--it was fantastic. We were offered a room upgrade when we arrived on Saturday and the room was just lovely. The staff were friendly and helpful, and I would not hesitate to book again. The hotel is in a quiet area about 10 minutes walk from the historic center. Walking to the Ponte Vecchio takes about 15 minutes. The hotel itself is gorgeous and breakfast was wonderful. We appreciated all the extra touches and it made all the difference. I would recommend the hotel to anyone in a heartbeat.

Lovely, but offers less than wonderful service

The hotel was nearly impossible to find. We walked around for an hour at 10pm trying to locate it but since there are no recognizable signs we just kept turning in circles, even though locals kept giving us directions. In addition, I emailed the hotel nearly 2 weeks prior to my stay there to ask about its location in conjunction to a specific point where bus tours leave from so that I could book an excursion. Since they never responded to my inquiry, I was unable to book the excursion (since I did not know if it would be possible to reach the tour's location). When I arrived at the hotel I asked if they could book the excursion for me and when they tried, it was completely booked for the time I was to be in Florence. When I mentioned that I inquired about this weeks ago, their response was "Well, even if we did get back to you there is no guarantee that it would have been available anyways." The concierge did call around to find another tour (of a different kind) that was available, which was appreciated, but since I went to Florence specifically to visit the hills of Tuscany it was a great disappointment to miss the original tour. The food was amazing, though. I would go back just to eat there from their breakfast buffet and to indulge in their dinners and desserts!
