        Hotel Kraft was a lovely place to stay during our stay in Forence. The rooms were well equiped and very clean. The staff are friendly and very helpful. The breakfasts (buffet type) offered a varied and plentiful menu of lovely fresh food. The pool was a great place to refresh after a busy and hot day signtseeing. The view from the roof terrace is great too.

        Friendly desk help.. Clean airy room.. With great view and lovely brekfast patio overlooking the city. .... Perfect for a night view of the city of Florence. We stayed here during a one night stay in Florence and truely enjoyed our vist and wish our stay had been longer.

      • Single
        7.4

        Breakfast was excellent and wait staff very friendly and accommodating.

        Wifi rates were not competitive which drove me to use internet cafes in preference to paying a daily rate and staying in my room to use the Internet there. Would have much preferred a slighter higher cost per night and free wifi.

      • Older travelers
        9.2

        Good location, 10 minutes walk from main attractions so good and quiet. Hotel staff excellent, very friendly and helpful and the rooftop bar, restaurant and swimming pool were a major feature, perfect after a hard day's site seeing.

        No tea or coffee making facilities in room

      • Family with children
        9.2

        We particularly enjoyed the refreshing swimming pool. The breakfast at the terrace was very nice.

        Facilities, the restrauant and bar area and the staff were all excellent.

        The room was small.

      • Family with children
        6.6

        Likes include location, breakfast was very good and staff was excellent.

        The layout of our particular room was poor, bathroom door did not close properly, lighting was poor in the room and a few light bulbs were not working in the bathroom. The TV was on a credenza style cabinet immediately at the foot of the bed, there was lots of room to have it on the wall. Our daughter was staying with us and her room was very nice and well laid out. The only other issue is that the walls are very thin as you could hear the dialogue in the next room very clearly. I would recommend staying on floors other than the lowest level unless you like to have a dark room.

      • Group of friends
        10.0

        The hotel was clean and comfortable. The staff were friendly and could not have been more helpful. Breakfast was well presented and with plenty of choice. Roberto was exceptionally helpful. The view from the rooftop terrace and pool was wonderful. The hotel was ideally placed, close enough to the station and the centre of Florence. There was a selection of restaurants close by and the hotel staff were excellent giving advice of where to eat. I would recommend this hotel and would certainly staff there again.

      • Family with children
        8.8

        Relaxed, nice decor, very helpful staff and the roof deck/pool Has an amazing view. The atmosphere was great. It was so nice for our family (with 12 year old son to swim after a long day of museums and sight seeing Food was gourmet but still good. They did offer great local restaurants to dine at.

        Nothing

      • Older travelers
        10.0

        We were really pleased to receive a room upgrade. The staff were friendly and helpful without being too zealous. The rooftop pool was a very welcome addition to a wonderful city break.

        The arrival of a large coach party on the last day.

      • Older travelers
        9.6

        Nice and clean room, very polite and friendly staff, nice but small pool, anyway there are too many things to see in Florence rather then to stay at the pool, very good breakfast but the same everyday, this is not a problem if you stay couple of days
