The lobby and first-floor lounge are shiny, colorful feasts for the eyes. In the Sweet Bar lounge, large wide-backed, candy-red velvet chairs sit next to grand lavender sofas. Shimmering oblong metallic disks hang from the ceiling, and a shiny black grand piano sits across from three digital interpretations of a fish tank. Fun, poppy music adds to the playful vibe.
Bed and Bath
The 132 modern guestrooms are more conventional than the common areas, with vertically striped taupe wallpaper, blond wood furnishings and crisp white bedding. Striking black-and-white photos of Florence adorn the walls. Though all rooms are comfortably large, Junior Suites have the added bonus of a lounge area with a big, comfy couch and a Jacuzzi tub. Monochromatic bathrooms are simple but spacious.
Breakfast is served in the chic, Japanese-inspired Tasty Restaurant and Harmony Room, where bamboo rods separate sharp-edged mahogany and cream tables and kimonos adorn the walls. For a lively and reasonably priced happy hour, stop by the hotel’s Sweet Bar lounge. The jovial staff makes a mean Italian spritz.
In the Area
Art aficionados should make a beeline for the world famous Uffizi gallery and then head for Michelangelo’s statue of David at the Accademia gallery. In need of an energy boost? Grab an espresso at an alfresco café on the Piazza del Duomo. For dinner, make reservations at the legendary meat-centric Ristorante Buca Mario. There’s plenty more to do outside Florence, too, including exploring the picturesque hills of Fiesole and wine tasting in Chianti.
How to Get There
Great hotel, a good value for our money, the breakfast was excellent, very clean, the staff was very helpful and professional. The location is good, walk distance to transportation, restaurants, and to the best attractions.
It is the second time I stay at the Ambasciatori. The first time was with my 2 kinds at Easter time for leisure, this time for business reasons. In both occasions my stay was really great.
First the location is really unbeatable. Once you arrive at the station you will be right at their desk in not more than 3 minutes, without the hassle of carrying your luggage or taking a taxi.
Even if the hotel has a great number of rooms (I guess almost 200) the Staff is always very professional and welcoming, ready to answer any request you may have.
And if you are lucky, you may have your room ready before 3.00 pm.
As I said, the location is really perfect for visiting the city.
Rooms are clean and comfortable and buffet breakfast is really good and complete, starting at 6.30 am (breakfast staff is also very polite and ready to help you with any special request)!
Keep up with your great job!
We had 4 rooms for our family during our June 2019 trip to Italy. We were there for three nights. It was great to be right by the train terminal which eliminated the need for transportation to and from the hotel. We took a bullet train from Rome to Florence and back. I was concerned the rooms might be noisy, but they were extremely quiet. Our room faced the train terminal on busy corner and it was quiet. It is a little more hectic on the street, but we were within great walking distance to all the squares, restaurants, and shopping. Overall it was great. Nice and clean, quiet. The breakfast buffet was great. Our safe had been locked shut. We called the desk and they sent someone up immediately. Great customer service. They were very pleasant.
Really enjoyed the stay in this hotel as it was convenient to explore Florence. Easy access to train, bus or walking around. Staff was very helpful. Breakfast was wonderful and the room was very well maintained. Great experience for someone wanting to explore Florence.
Staff attentive & check-in/out made quick & easy. Location close to train, bus & taxi and very convenient to walking around the center city. Interior is quiet & secure although outside is constantly busy with lots of activity.
