Simple Excellence in a Hotel

Close to the Train Station

Hotel Globus Florence is a 23-room hotel run by an amazing staff that leaves guests appreciating their superior customer service. It is only 0.5 kilometers (0.3 miles) away from the railroad station, making this hotel a great choice for visitors arriving by train. Located in the northwestern quadrant of Florence's downtown district, Hotel Globus offers convenient access to most attractions. Most are within 2 km (1.2 miles) and many are within walking distance.

Stop in at St. Lawrence Market

One of the largest churches in Italy, the Basilica de San Lorenzo, lends its name to Florence's San Lorenzo Market district. Michelangelo designed and built the church's Laurentian Library, which houses over 11,000 rare books and manuscripts. The city's largest market is also located here only 10m (33 ft) rom the Hotel Globus. This open-air market could supply astute travelers with a wealth of fresh snacks and foods at local prices.  

 Quaint Service

An extensive renovation to the historic 16th-century building added an elevator and modern chic furnishings. Although the hotel does not offer a fitness center or swimming pool it does offer most other standard amenities, including a fresh to order continental breakfast. Free breakfast, newspapers and Wi-Fi in all rooms provides a quality service level for this value-priced hotel. It will not take staff long to call you by name as their service skills are hard to beat.

Sparse and Functional

Most rooms include standard hotel furnishings if somewhat sparse on the simple decor. Blackout curtains, LCD TV, daily housekeeping, air conditioning, minibar, and an in-room safe are the standard amenities you will find in each room. Every room does include its own private bathroom. Laundry and ironing services are available on request.

The Bottom Line

Elevator service begins on the first floor, not the ground floor  (which is street level). Upon arrival, either you or a porter will need carry your bags up to the reception desk on the first floor before you can take the elevator to the rest of the hotel. However, the management team's high quality of customer service makes up for such minor issues or missing amenities. On the western fringe of downtown, Hotel Globus Florence is the perfect spot for railroad travelers to stay and enjoy the city's attractions before catching their next train. Large enough to serve, small enough to care is an accolade this hotel deserves.

This small, hip hotel offers rooms at rates that are remarkably reasonable in high season and downright bargains at other times. While everything in the place is rather miniature, from...
If you are willing to compromise on room size, the Globus will enable you to avoid the brand-new antiques and Botticelli posters that define the decor of most Florence hotels in this price range.
Rough Guide
The three-star Globus has a somewhat corporate feel (boxy furniture and natural tones throughout), but the rooms are very comfortable and the location convenient
The three-star Globus Hotel offers a mix of swanky surroundings and modern amenities that is surprisingly cosmopolitan (and affordable) for Florence. The hotel’s 23 rooms have a sleek,...
