I had a very positive experience staying three nights at Hotel Crocini. Location details: the hotel is a 15-20 minute easy walk to Centro Storico, or catch a C-2 bus or take a 9 euro taxi (2018) from SMN train station. There are nearby restaurants.
Room details: Room #7 is up a short flight of stairs and overlooks garden area allowing for a light-filled, quiet room. The bathroom is huge: plentiful towels, soap, shampoo, moisturizer, etc. are provided. There is plenty of closet space and ample hangers. The AC, TV, WiFi & hair dryer all work great. The large bed was comfortable.
Staff/Management details: Breakfast room is large and provides ample choices. All of the staff are polite and helpful (answering all questions, carrying my suitcase upstairs, providing maps and recommendations, printing boarding passes, and reserving a taxi (at 5 AM no less!).
Overall Hotel Crocini is an excellent choice.

I was not impressed with this hotel overall.
Let's start with the positives:
1. Location was great. We were right by the river, about a 20 minute walk from the center of Florence, so far from the throngs of tourists, which we liked.
2. Hotel was in a quiet location which was safe to walk to at night.
3. Hotel staff was helpful (as expected for a 2 star hotel)--i.e. gave us maps(useful), gave us restaurant advice(not useful--sent us to a steakhouse even though we told them we were vegetarian)
4. They had free wi-fi, which worked in some, but not all of their rooms...more on the room change below.

Now the negatives:
1. The beds were awful. We stayed in a "triple" which was basically 2 twin beds and one rolling bed. The twin bed mattresses sank down to the springs when we set or slept on them. If you can imagine, the rolling bed was even worse. We asked for a better mattress on the rolling bed, and they offered to change us to another room the subsequent night. The new room had mattresses that were just as bad in fact, and then we coudn't even access wi-fi. We all woke up with back pain the days we stayed there (and we are young very active fit professionals). I don't think they've changed their mattresses in years.
2. The rooms were not cleanly. In fact, there were black and red stains all over the walls and ceilings. We weren't sure what these were from, but we didn't really want to know.
3. The new room they moved us into had a shower door that kept falling on us when we showered. We told the hotel staff about this, and they told us that they already knew that this was a problem. I wonder why they didn't fix it before they moved us into it?
4. The breakfast was awful. Stale pastries, fruit that had been frozen (and so tasted like crap), stale bread. The plain yogurt was decent and the fruit yogurts had too much corn syrup added to them.

Overall, I would not recommend this hotel unless you are a student or bagpacker looking for a good value. Those student days are long gone for me, and I would be wiling to pay a little more for a good night's sleep on a decent mattress and a non-hazardous shower.

This hotel doesn't have a great view; however it is at walking distance to many interesting places: the Arno River, Gli Ufizzi Galery, the Communal Theatre. It is located also in a very nice area of Firenze, the staff is very helpful and polite -all of them English-speaking, which is a huge help- and breakfast, not your everyday ridiculous american breakfast but GOOD GOOD BREAKFAST is included in the price, which by the way is very good. I asked for a bathroom in the room, I'm not sure if every room has one but while traveling in Europe I suggest not to forget to ask for this. It has a small, slow elevator just in case you can't use the stairs and the over all decoration is nice. The area is quiet, safe and has lots of places to eat, shop and walk. I highly recommend it. By the way, I went to Firenze on April-May, wonderful weather, say 60-70 Farenheit average.

I've stayed at this hotel for one night and I can only say positive things. Small, family run hotel, with super nice staff, very helpful at all times, all speaking English very well. Rooms are spacious, clean and well kept. Families can get baby cot for free, the breakfast room also has a child seat. Breakfast buffet has many different items, so you should take breakfast as well. The building has lift installed (small and old, but a special experience riding in it as in many other italian hotels). If you come by car, you can park it within hotel grounds for free. WIFI is also free and operates without problems. It's location is close to sights of Florence, all within walking distance. I would gladly come back another time and would recommend this place to friends.

After two full weeks of reasonable, comfortable accommodations all over Italy, I have to admit that we were expecting much more out of a stay for the price. The shower was incredibly tiny, the beds were uncomfortable, and the promised WiFi was intermittent at best. It was a hike from the city center and although reasonably priced, we just didn't feel like we got nearly the value we were promised. This hotel is saved from a 2 rating by its very friendly and accommodating staff -- they went out of their way to make this experience the best it could be -- and the on-site parking but we were decidedly underwhelmed by this place.

I recommend paying a bit more for a better night's sleep and a more convenient location in Florence.

Dear Katie M the Crocini Staff is proud to have saved the Hotel!! :) Thank you for your visit and for your feedback... unfortunatly I really can't move the hotel closer to the pedestrian area where I understand you would have liked been to be hoste - but actually being arrived in Florence by car you could have not... without many, believe me, many troubles and crazy valet parking rates - but I thank you very much for your comment and your other critics, I will do my best to improve the Hotel as I always do since 18 years I am running it, promised!

My new wife and I spent 3 days here and were more than satisfied. Our room was HUGE and i mean HUGE! The ceilings were like 15 feet high! We had a window that opened to the back area which was quite and filled with birds. The hotel staff was very nice and spoke great english. The hotel if very secure and you can only get in if your buzzed in by the staff. The breakfast had meats, cheeses, coffee, breads, yogurt, fruit, juice etc... My only complaint is that it was a bit of a walk to the main attractions but you get to walk along the river which made it not seem so bad. Would recommend this place to anyone!

This review is a long overdue, as my Italy trip was almost 2 months ago.

Hotel Crocini certainly spoiled me for the rest of my time in Italy. It's hard to find anything to even nitpick about.

First of all, Lorenzo is not only one of the most accommodating people I've met, but also a wealth of knowledge, not just for Florence, but for Italy as a whole. Don't hesitate to ask him anything! This accommodating property seems to be a common factor in this hotel, as the lady at the breakfast room and the night shift guy (I didn't catch their names, sadly), were just as open to us.

The rooms were quite spacious with high ceilings, giving us an open feel. And with the hotel being on a quiet strip, it was undoubtedly one of the most restful places to recharge before heading out the next day.

The breakfast was nothing to sneeze at, either. Good variety of things to eat.

Location wise, it's close to everything. But what isn't close by in Florence? :)

I've been to a number of hotels, and I'm finding it difficult to think of a place where I better enjoyed my stay than here.

Located 20 minutes walk from the center of Florence in a residential area, the key to this place is its central courtyard. Get a room with a courtyard window and you will wake up to the sound of birds singing. No traffic or human noise. Comfortable room, very good breakfast, helpful front desk staff particularly Gabriel (afternoon shift) who speaks excellent English and was beyond helpful. We had competitive rates. Would return here again.

Dear Travellerlikeyou, thank you very much for your feedback! We have 20 rooms in total, 14 are facing the courtyard and you're right, these are very very quiet. Can you believe that a couple of months ago I had an old canadian lady that complained a lot because of the birds singing in the morning?? First time in 16 years here at the Crocini... It's a jungle out there ;) Saluti da Firenze - Lorenzo
