Positive Reviews

Clean and Comfortable

Forte16 provides you with apartments that offer everything you need for a comfortable stay. Guests said it felt like a true home away from home. All room are spotless and appear recently renovated and modern. Guests appreciated the fully-equipped kitchen area in their rooms and the coin-operated laundry room onsite the hotel.

City Central

Forte16 boasts a fantastic location, only a 10-minute walk from the Florence city center, and within easy reach of all major sights. The hotel is convenient to nearby supermarkets and shopping, as well as many great restaurants.

Relaxing Dip

Guests really enjoyed the hotel's beautiful pool area and the top-notch spa facilities. The hot tub on the rooftop terrace is a major highlight but often occupied. However, you can make a reservation to book your private session anytime at the front desk.

Negative Reviews

Public Pool

The pool area can get quite crowded and guests say it is often full of children. The pool hours are limited and often restricted to the evening, and access to children is even more limited. However, guests say there is no one there to enforce these rules so kids often stay after hours.

Bugs Bite

There are lots of mosquitoes in the city and guests highly recommend that you don't open the windows in the summer, and use the air conditioner instead. Of course, keep in mind that to conserve energy, most hotels ask you to not leave the A/C running when you're out of the room.


The hotel features modern soundproof insulation, but some rooms are still susceptible to traffic noise, according to recent reviews. As a precaution, it's a good idea to bring along some earplugs.
