We recently celebrated a family wedding in Florence and most of the guests including ourselves stayed at the Hotel Lórologio. The service was excellent. The staff went out of their way to help me with anything that happened. The room was well appointed and spacious, modern and sophisticated. The breakfast was top class and I can recommned this hotel without reservation.

Room Tip: A view is not necessary but I would ask for a spacious room. Avoid the loft room as the bathroom is...

This is a beautiful hotel. We had a superior room with view and it was gorgeous. Large by Italian standards and very clean and well presented. The bed linen and towels were of an excellent quality as with the tea and coffee provided in the room. We had a few issues with wifi in the room but not a problem elsewhere . The breakfast room was spacious and beautifully decorated as with the whole hotel. The hotel was very close to all major attractions and a short walk to the train station which is why we chose it. It was far enough away from the station however to dispel any "seedy" concerns. The staff were very pleasant and we had a lovely time in Florence.

Walking distance from the Hotel and major sites, restaurants and shops. Of special interest to those who love watches and are collectors as the theme reflects the owners passion for watches. Helpful staff, well kept and well furnished rooms, well maintained bathrooms though not much of a view except those facing the square. Good spread on the breafast front which is served on the terrace restaurant.

Room Tip: Try and get a room with a view of the square.

We loved this hotel. It was stylish and extremely comfortable. The staff were all so very helpful and friendly. The location was convenient as it was only a relatively short walk to the station and to the hop-on hop-off bus. There were quite a few restaurants located nearby too. Breakfast was absolutely excellent. Our room and bathroom were just gorgeous and if you love clocks it's a bonus. We had drinks each night sitting outside the hotel's bar and with our drinks we were given free bowls of crisps, nuts, olives and caperberries. It was a real treat to discover how well caperberries go with a campari and soda.

This is a great little hotel, one of the 6 WTB (Why the Best?) hotels in Florence. It's a particular treat if you like watches and clocks as there are great touches everywhere that reflect the passion of the owner for timepieces. Each room is named after and has photos of a Rolex, Patek Phillippe or Vacheron Constantin watch. There is memorabilia all around and the many other little gems you'll discover if you take the time to walk around. The rooms are lovely. The management is very nice and accommodating, and the location is perfect for walking around town. It's a short walk to the train station and also to the fairgrounds, if you are coming for a trade show. A nice breakfast is served upstairs each morning. Wifi is free and good.

Our second visit to this hotel and it was just as good second time around. Great location, on walking distance from the heart of downtown , very well located for visiting the major sites .Very friendly front desk staff,efficient and helpful. Room was very clean,elegant, beautifully decorated not very large ,with NO view. Breakfast is on the 4th floor, providing an excellent view of the Cathedral S. Maria Novella.
Garage was too expensive.
