“Good but not perfect”
Reviewed 20 October 2012

My wife and I had several conversations about how we would rate this hotel. We constantly went back and forth between a 3 and 4, but ultimately settled on a 4 due to their excellent service.

The hotel is located very central to the sites on a piazza, however, the is a decent amount of homeless folks that sleep on the piazza at night. We were never bothered or hassled, but it always provides need for caution in the late hours of the evening. A laundromat is literally a minute away, which was ideal and useful.

Breakfast was European style as would be expected and it was good with made to order cappuccinos. The staff are excellent and are quickly able to match your face to your room number. The free wifi was great and we had no connectivity issues as mentioned by others.

The only negatives were the fact that our room had numerous Mosquitos, the bed was not very comfortable, and the hotel had turned off the AC for the season. I specifically booked the hotel due to the fact that it had AC, which would have been nice with weather in the mid to upper 70s. Unfortunately, we had to keep our windows closed at night due to the presence of Mosquitos outside, however, they still found a way into our room. We easily killed 10-15 Mosquitos in our room, yet we were still eaten alive.

My husband and I came on our honeymoon. The hotel has a lot going for it: very charming, great location, excellent service. They gave us a complimentary aperitive since we were on our honeymoon. The rooms were a good size as were the bathrooms. The shower had plenty of hot water and excellent water pressure. The only things stopping me from giving Loggiato Dei Serviti an "excellent" rating are the beds and the mosquitoes. Our bed was rock hard - like sleeping on a sheet of plywood - and even though we kept our windows closed the entire stay, our room had a ton of mosquitoes in it and we got bit a lot.

I really loved it!

Not exeactly how it looks in the pictures, but it has great character so you can feel charm of Italy and imagine Florence of old times!

Plus it really nice, clean and comfortable hotel with modern bathroom. Staff was really great and helpful as well. Location is excellent: 5 minutes walk to Duomo (Cafedral) and to city centre, 3 minutes from small supermarket.

But the best part of our stay was our balcony! It had breathtaking view on Duomo on one side and hills on other! That was the most romantic stay ever, we bought some wine and cheeses and just enjoyed sitting there and admiring the view. (there is excellent wine, cheese and cure meat delicacy shop opposite of Duomo :) ).

but don't expect too much from breakfast :)

I loved every minute of our stay and highly recommend it to everyone!

Room Tip: take a room with balcony and you will be not disappointed!

Located on arguably the most historically preserved piazza in Florence, Hotel Loggiato dei Serviti is a traveller's delight. Re-designed and enlarged monastery cells, outfitted with antique furniture, give the proper long ago feel. The staff is extemely cheerful and helpful and the breakfast is excellent. It's well worth the stay.

The hotel is beautiful, the staff is hardworking and pleasant. Breakfast had good cappuccino, hard boiled eggs, yogurt and good quality meats and bread. The piazza is quiet and interesting but only a few blocks from all the sights. We scored an upgraded room by chance which made it even better.

Hotel Loggiato dei Serviti offers a perfect blending of "antiquity" with every "modern convenience". The stone stairways and vaulted ceilings are incredible! The decor of the common areas creates a feeling of Renaissance chic. We were especially fortunate to have been upgraded from a double superior room to a two-bedroom suite overlooking the piazza. Our main bedroom was lovely and huge with a very comfortable sitting area. The bathroom, though dated, was clean and met all of our needs. Simonetta and Chiara could not have been more helpful with assisting us in acclimating ourselves to Florence. The entire staff was very accommodating and in fact, provided us with croissants and cappuccino despite our late arrival to breakfast one morning. We considered Loggiato dei Serviti to be very comfortable for our 4 day, mid-September visit to the beautiful city of Florence and would most certainly revisit this hotel on any future visit.

Room Tip: We took advantage of our view of the piazza and truly enjoyed the opportunity to "people watch...

This is a charming hotel. The decor seems to reflect the ages it has endured with the appropriate measure of modern amenities. Note, the absolutely horrible WiFi Service. Be sure to bring shower shoes, just in case your bathroom does not have a tub or a typical shower floor. It is a great place to stay that is central to all 10 of the top Florence must see sites. Be aware of the gypsies/homeless ones who sleep in the piazza. Don't be scared, just be cautious. Breakfast had a minimal selection of items.

* May I also recommend you eat at the OK Bar, approx 300 meters from hotel. The best meals in the area :)
