Okay, that's probably an understatement. We expected much more, especially since we were on our honeymoon. The hotel was only a couple blocks from a train station, and there was a cute park in front, but these were the only good points whatsoever. The staff is not friendly and was not helpful at all. Anytime we asked a question it...

We stayed here for 2 night sin June, at the start of our honeymoon trip to Tuscany. For us, the location was ideal, just 5-10mins walk to the Duomo and other key sites, and just round the corner from the central market (ideal for stocking up on supplies). The breakfast (included) was a pleasant combination of fruit juices, pastries, bread,...

My g/f and I traveled Italy for two weeks and hit many cities; unfortunately, this was the one hotel where the staff was not friendly. Not helpful. Basically, rude...not the way you want to be treated when traveling abroad or traveling period. And, I say this as someone who doesn't need much guidance in life, so, they were pretty bad....

Thankfully we only had booked this hotel for one night -- had we planned to stay longer it would have been a huge nightmare. The experience began with rude front desk staff that seemed annoyed that our Italian was not perfect. When we got to the room we found used towels in the bathroom and waited almost two hours before...

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay in this very homely hotel. Excellent location, about 5 minutes walk from San Marco and 10 from the Duomo. Staff were friendly and very helpful. The single room was small, but cosy, and the whole place was tastefully decorated and immaculately clean. It seemed like the place had been recently renovated. Good choice of food...

We're back from a four night stay, cut to three nights due to the awful Meridiana cancelling our 8pm flight and bussing us from Gatwich to a hotel in Croydon between 3-6am before bussing us back for the morning flight... a long story but we were exhausted and grumpy; the hotel had cancelled our booking as we hadn't turned up...

Hotel Malaspina looks much better in the pictures than it really is. The accomodations are fair and could be cleaner. The hotel is centrally located, and the breakfast was the best my boyfriend and I experienced in the three hotels we visited during our trip to Venice, Florence, and Rome. Service was good but nothing out of the ordinary.

We have stayed here before and decided to come back. The rooms are clean. The staff is very friendly except for one cranky guy. The hotel is near the bus / train terminal , airport, and shopping. Also, breakfasts are included with the rooms.

We stayed at the Malaspina for a total of five nights. The hotel is located within walking distance from the train station and to the museums, duomo and other significant sights in Florence. We love to walk and although another reviewer preferred a more central location, to us this was perfect. The hotel location at the piazza also gave us...

Just spent 5 nights here on a family vacation with my mother, sister and neice and was not disappointed. Great value for the money. This hotel has a lovely, old-world feel . There are antiques in the common areas and hallways. The room I shared with my neice was also quite comfortable. Good beds. Excellent air conditioning. A bidet and...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
With the same hospitality accorded Dante at the Castello di Fosdinovo in Lunigiana, the descendants of the Marquis Malaspina have opened their Florence residence on Piazza dell’Indipendenza to offer modern hospitality with that touch and culture that makes Hotel Malaspina a truly charming hotel.The lady of the house, Benedetta Torrigiani Malaspina, has created elegant rooms with period furniture with inviting halls and parlors, where the intimate atmosphere resembling a private home is enhanced by the excellent comforts, superior among those proposed by 3 star hotels in Florence. Starting with the garage just steps from the hotel (a valet takes your car and brings it back when you want it) and reception open 24h.The TV room and lobby are very pleasant, ideal situations for relaxing or socializing over a cup of coffee or glass of Tuscan wine served by the bar reserved for guests and open from 8 in the morning until midnight.Those staying at Hotel Malaspina for business can also use a conference room which can hold up to 20 people.The pretty breakfast room offers a plentiful buffet with sweet and savory foods, typical Florentine sweets, juices and hot beverages. Guests can obtain all the information they need at the reception for visiting the city and our concierge service makes reservations for tickets to the most important museums and sights, music and theater performances, recommends and makes reservations for restaurants, guided tours and tours to the surrounding areas and transfers to and from the airport (plane and train tickets can also be purchased). ... more   less
