Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We visited the Hotel for five nights in February 2024. We were two adults and one child aged 11. What a great hotel-experience we had, staying in the Bindaccio suite. The hotel is centrally located in a great are with lots of antique-shops and in great proximity to nice restaurants. Getting to and from the airports is easy using the T2 with just a short walk from the Unita stop. From the outside, the building might not look like much but the interior is quite grand. Entering the foyer already creates an amazing ambience. The dining-room and shared living room has amazing high ceilings and beautiful interior decoration. Our suite shared the same high ceiling but the interior was of more contemporary design. The suite is large, but the main-room could probably have used the space a bit better. There was a large dining/desk glass-table, but only one chair for the table. There was also a sofa and two lounge-chairs, but only a very small sidetable. I think a smaller writing-desk and a proper lounge-area would have been a better use of the space. There was TV on a table placed in the middle of the room. It was a SMART-TV, but the Internet was quite slow, so we did not really use it. The room has two walk-in closets. There is a separate toilet. The bath and shower is in the same room as the main bed - It's OK with smaller children, but if you bring a teenager you'll probably run into some arguments :-) Breakfast was nice and a very relaxed affair with great service and it was just amazing to sit in the beautiful space. Overall a great experience...

The hotel it’s perfectly located alongside the river Arno with exquisites views that match the elegance of the place. It’s small, intimate yet felt grand and extremely professional in every little thing. Extra praise to the fabulous Anastasia who not only gave us the best welcome , she also excelled with knowledge and advice. It felt like if we’re stepping into home and she dedicated to much time to help us to squeeze every minute in the city! We stayed at Gisla room which was spacious, with an extra bedroom and had all the facilities you need. Downside?lack of views (not that we spent much time there anyway!) and the biggest one for us was that the main bathroom had no curtains at all. Roof to Floor windows which made it not comfortable at all. We all had to use the little second bathroom. Please invest in blinds or dark window glass that protect privacy. Breakfast was fabulous. Plenty of choices, fresh and coffee superb! We also loved the honesty bar where you can relax and watch the sunset. The hotel it’s located perfectly to walk to all the attractions. Can’t fault location neither. Overall, a fantastic stay that I would recommend to my friends! Grazie! 👏

Interesting, historic, elegant, boutique hotel right on the river Arno, able to walk everywhere. We typically book Marriotts and wanted something a little more local flavor. It’s a restored villa in the city, nine rooms, all different. Includes a very abundant breakfast with lots of variety. Fabulous and helpful staff. We stayed in Gisla room which is HUGE for a city hotel, and actually had master bedroom and small bedroom (ideal for a child) AND TWO bathrooms. Only cons: if mobility challenged there are lots of stairs, hotel does have a small elevator though.

During our stay at Leone Blu Hotel, we were transported to a captivating Renaissance experience. Housed within an actual 1400s castle, the hotel offered a unique and authentic Tuscan ambiance. Our multi-level room featured genuine old art and provided a breathtaking view of the sunset and multiple bridges. The prime location allowed us to easily explore nearby attractions, and the breakfast spread, along with made-to-order cappuccinos, was stellar. The front desk team member's assistance in making local restaurant reservations, thanks to her native Italian fluency, was invaluable. Leone Blu Hotel is a truly exceptional choice for an authentic Tuscan stay. Can’t wait to return!!

My wife and I stayed in the Superior Suite river view. Our friends stayed in the Deluxe Suite. The rooms were clean, very comfortable, and the staff was friendly and attentive. The included breakfast buffet had a lot of options ranging from bacon, sausage, and eggs to croissants, yogurt, muffins, sliced meets, and cereal. This hotel is small only 6 rooms but they are very spacious especially by European standards. Everything was clean and the maids did a good job every day. If you are someone that goes to bed early the street noise can be a little loud but it’s mostly people noise not cars so we did not find that it was that much of an issue. The rooms are all on the second floor. The hotel decor consisted of classical paintings and our room had an old engraved ceiling. I would definitely recommend this place for its character and spacious clean rooms.

Great service, especially Bahara, great rooms, good location. Nice experience in a historic place. Don’t miss an opportunity to stay here in Florence. You’ll only be hurting yourself by not. It’s that special. It’s not a brand new hotel, actually 500 yrs old or so but who’s counting. Our room had two bathrooms, couches, two bedrooms. All in all a great experience.

We booked the Superior Suite in this FLorence palace on our last minute spontaneous trip to Italy. The palace is ideally located in Florence. Andrea at the reception was very helpful and expressed great customer service. He recommended two wonderful true Tuscany restaurants for us to try during our stay, as well as help arrange a transfer to our next stop on our travels. The place and it's surroundings are convenintly located. The palace did have ongoing construction as well as an additional street work. We were informed of the ongoing process and this didn't interfere with our stay. We stayed in the Bindaccio Suite, quite spacious and artfully decorated in mixture of Tuscan contemporary flare. The included breakfast has an amazing arrangement of pastries, meats and juices with kind and courteous staff. The reception area operates in limited hours so it's important to communicate with them if your arrival or departure times are out of this window.
