Grand Hotel Cavour has many fantastic features such as the Staff who were always pleasant and helpful to the roof top garden which we enjoyed a drink on our first evening and the hotels fantastic location in the centre of Florence. However, our room looked nothing like the rooms in the photos. Room 235 was dark, the furniture was dated and unappealing, the bed was uncomfortable and when we first arrived, there was a really strange smell so we had to open the windows. We were on the second floor towards the back of the hotel which didn't lead to a restful night's sleep due to the street noise but this cannot be helped by the hotel. On our last morning in the hotel we were awoken by a chamber maid who walked straight into our room at about 8:45am! An innocent accident but it still shouldn't have happened. Breakfast is limited so I would advise future guests to go down early to get the best selection of food. Expect to wait about 20 minutes for a pot of breakfast tea though.
