Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Rooftop terrace with seasonal pool, bar, and city views
  • Located on a quiet, tree-lined street near train station
  • Charming lobby with fireplace, piano, and chic bar
  • Rooms have flat-screen TVs with some English channels
  • Rooms with balconies have lovely views of the city
  • Bathrooms are immaculate and modern
  • Free daily breakfast in sunny breakfast room
  • Free Wi-Fi

Cons

  • Some rooms have bland, generic look
  • Some noise complaints due to thin walls
  • Some furniture showing wear and tear, such as deep scratches

Bottom Line

This 77-room hotel sits in a quiet locale that's a bit removed from Florence's main attractions. A major draw is the rooftop terrace with small, seasonal pool and bar that overlooks the Tuscan hillsides. The rooms, however, are a mixed bag -- some have a bland look with generic furniture, while others feature bright accent walls and stylish adornments such as gilded mirrors. Flat-screen TVs add a modern touch, but some furnishings are showing signs of wear and tear. Overall, this hotel is a decent value, with perks such as free daily breakfast and free Wi-Fi.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

Situated along a quiet, tree-lined street that is a bit far from major tourist sights

The Hotel Kraft stands along a quaint, tree-lined street near dozens of restaurants and shops. It's a less touristy area than other parts of the city, and most main attractions are not within easy walking distance.

Florence is extremely pedestrian-friendly, and is one of Italy's most beautiful cities -- it's more compact, and less gritty, than Rome. The Duomo is the most iconic sight here, but other popular attractions include Michelangelo's "David" at the Galleria dell'Accademia, the works of Botticelli and da Vinci at the Uffizi, and the Ponte Vecchio bridge, which dates back to the 1300s. The Piazza della Signora is a popular tourist hub, and many hotels are located near it.

 Bottom Line

This 77-room hotel sits in a quiet locale that's a bit removed from Florence's main attractions. A major draw is the rooftop terrace with small, seasonal pool and bar that overlooks the Tuscan hillsides. The rooms, however, are a mixed bag -- some have a bland look with generic furniture, while others feature bright accent walls and stylish adornments such as gilded mirrors.
