Worst Value for Money!

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 27, 2012

I seldom write review about a product or service, but the bad experience at this hotel prompted me to submit one. Overall, this hotel delivers the quality of a back-packer hostel while charging a mid-range price. We paid 110 Euro per night, but felt like we got services of a place that charges half of that amount.
Before I made the booking about 6 weeks before my trip to Florence in mid-June, I was concerned that the rooms had no air conditioning, but I was assured by the owner, Marco, that the room would be comfortable even without air conditioning, with temperature in Florence to be in the 20’s- low 30 ‘s degree Celsius range, nice and cool at night and the ceiling fan in the rooms would be sufficient. As it turned out, when we were there, the temp reached high 30’s with strong sun as early as 9 am till 5-6 pm. There are 10 rooms altogether at this property, 5-6 of which face the street that is so noisy day and night that one cannot leave the window open. The rooms were literally ovens that we could not sleep throughout our stay there. Rooms on the other side facing the court yard seem a bit better, but I also heard that guests could not sleep in them either.
Worse yet, there was no attempt by the hotel to make guests more comfortable. The staff would not allow turning on air-conditioning in the common area where guests congregate in the evening to find respite from the uncomfortable bed rooms. Besides Marco, the staffs do not really speak English. One gal is quite pleasant, while the night shift guy is plain grumpy and rude.
The physical layout of the hotel is cramped, with 2 bathrooms for about 16-17 guests to share. I waited each evening 20-30 minutes for a bathroom. One of the bathrooms is of reasonable size, while the other one is tiny and one has to sort of slide sideway in to sit on the toilet. The hotel is on the 2nd floor of a dark, old building, with an old lift the size of a broom closet that can hardly hold a big luggage. The beds are simply mattresses sitting on wired bed frames to provide comfort level of a student dorm. The hotel does not provide breakfast, nor drinking water, although there was an electric kettle and a couple of tea bags given.

I will definitely NOT recommend the hotel and I will never return to this place.

Unique Quality: The redeeming quality of this hotel is its location that is right near the duomo, and Marco who speaks good English with charismatic personality. Everything else that it offers is less than comfortable, or pleasant. As a result, we were exhausted without sleep and did not have the energy to enjoy Florence.

Hotel Dali - What a find!

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on February 16, 2004

Hotel Dali is a cheap, clean, cheerful hotel in the centre of Florence.

It is close to all attractions, with very friendly and helpful owners.

Most rooms have shared facilities and no breakfast is served.

On our first stay our room was a little noisy - it was on the street side and there is an Irish Bar across the road...

On our 2nd stay we requested a room overlooking the courtyard (away from the street). It was much quieter!

Unique Quality: Rooms are large with sink and small fridge.

Such a friendly place to stay!

Directions: Far end of Duomo. 15min walk from station

Hotel Dali'

by written on January 10, 2003

While in Florence, I stayed at the Hotel Dali' located near the Duomo. This simple hotel has a total of just 11 rooms (yes, 11!) but do no take its meagre amount of rooms as a sign of bad things to come. The single room that I booked(online) turned out to be clean and pleasant. Perhaps the only thing that surprised me was the total absence of air-conditioning, but thanks to an inclusion of a stand-fan, I was able to have a pleasant sleep in the summer nights. And I was fortunate enough to have a room that has a view of the Duomo when I looked out from the window towards the left. The hotel also has two common bathrooms located at each end of the corridor. Were they dirty, you ask? No.

Of course, don't expect flashy decor and room service in this hotel. The Hotel Dali' is catered towards budget travellers and backpackers who want simple, comfortable rooms at very affordable prices.

Directions: From Stazione Santa Maria Novella, head towards the unmistakable dome of the Duomo which dominates the skyline. Approx: 15min.

60-70 Euro

Unique Quality: Hotel Dali is a nice family hotel with only 10 rooms. It´s clean and simpel hotel run by Marco and Samantha. A young couple who speaks English. Also Marie from Canada works at the hotel, wich makes reservations and tips for restaurants easier.
The hotel is quiet and the location is in the central of the Florence.
Do you want TV, bar and more this hotel is not for you.

We stayed at Hotel Dali. I can...

by written on August 26, 2002

We stayed at Hotel Dali. I can honestly say that for the price it was okay. It did not have its own bath so if that is important be aware. The rooms were clean and serviced on a daily basis.
120.000 Italian Lira

Unique Quality: Great view and close to everything.
