Air conditioner is old and very noisy. We just turned it off and sleep with opened window, luckily it's in late Oct. Asked for a water boiler, they gave a pot of hot water instead.

Small room, tiny bathroom. Interior not of good condition

I stayed at the Rex Hotel for 2 nights and had to move to another hotel afterwards because the condition of the room was just unbearable. It was very small and one can hardly turn around in the bath room. And I am a size XS! I will not recommend Hotel Rex unless you are like me, booking at the last minute and running out of choices.

Rex Hotel, Florence”

Great location - 5-10mins walk to main tourist sights. Immediate vicinity a great market and street stall shopping. Surrounded by restaurants!. 5 minis walk to main train station.
Very run-down looking room. Bathroom is extremely small with no proper shower stall. The shower head itself is fixed,non-adjustable and "rains" down vertically.

Despite the great location, regretfully, out of the 4 hotels that we have stayed in in Italy, the Rex is the only one we will not be returning to due to its poor room condition and even poorer bathroom condition. The plus location is that it is right in the midst of shopping, restaurants and historical tourist sights. There are many hotels within this vicinity too.

The lobby looks decent, but the rooms are very small and very ugly. The sewage was bad and our room had a bad smell. Also there was no in room internet. You have to go downstairs into the room next to the lobby to access the internet. The internet also disconnected frequently. There is breakfast included but it was also very bad. It consisted of croissants, yoghurt, orange juice, and biscuit toast with a choice of different jams.
