“Beautiful hotel in walking distance to all.”
Reviewed 16 August 2014 via mobile

We had two rooms for our family of 5. My kids had a huge 2 bedroom suite which they enjoyed the space and spreading out. We had a lovely room as well. Love the modern boutique hotel feel. Great breakfast and iPad to use in the lobby. Very chic!

The location of this hotel was the main reason we stayed here and it proved to be a great choice. The reception staff were friendly and breakfast was good. The roof bar has amazing views. Our bathroom was clean but a bit dated and the noise from the street below was very loud but then again the hotel is in a historic building in the centre of Florence so noise was to be expected. Overall a great hotel.

We had a junior suite for four which was a room with a queen bed and a lounge area with a sofa bed. Both rooms were large enough and clean. The queen bed and sofa bed do face each other. The bathroom was modern and a good size. The location was perfect. You could walk to all main attractions and it's about 10min in traffic from the train station. Next door is a restaurant which we decided to try and it was delicious. Fresh made pasta. The rooftop garden looks at the Duomo which is so close you feel like you could touch it. Walking around with two kids was no problem as it was so well located. Breakfast area is nice with good selection. I'd stay here again

My girlfriend and I had an amazing time! The location is absolutely amazing. We spent a lot of time searching for hotels and we feel that anyone that has a negative rating must have had a very unique experience. The staff was VERY friendly and helpful. The location is unbelieveable. Book this hotel you will not be disappointed. Yes, we're from New York. :)

Just spent 3 nights at the Cavour. Reception staff were helpful and friendly and our room was clean and a good size. The breakfasts were good with plenty of choice.
The best feature is the location which is central to all of the main attractions, the furthest being the 'David' museum at 15 mins walk.
The biggest disappointment was the roof bar staff who on our first visit hadn't bothered putting out the seat cushions making the wooden benches very uncomfortable. Then on our next visit proceeded to chat and smoke whilst customers waited to be served and then got one of our cocktails wrong which they reluctently replaced but without an apology.
Such a shame this area is not run a well as the rest of the hotel as it could, and should, be a wonderful asset with it's marvelous views of the Duomo and Campenella.

Room Tip: Worth upgrading as rooms are not huge!

This is a beautiful hotel in the heart of Florence- just steps from the Duomo! We had a wonderful time there with our ski group for three nights. Very elegant decorations, great service, large rooms with big bathrooms and very clean. The location is excellent within walking distance to everything! Perfect for visiting the Duomo and all the historic sites and museums. Several fantastic restaurants and shopping right outside the door. The hotel has the most amazing roof top terrace and bar- with very nice seating and service- plus incredible views. Highly recommend staying here and would love to come back again!!

Great location, just beside Duomo. Amazing view from the roof garden. Easy access by foot to every major site. Stylish and elegant common spaces, decoration inspired by the Renaissance with no exaggerations. The photos in TripAdvisor are precise. Clean rooms and quiet cleaning staff. The frescoes and wall papers in the rooms are really beautiful. Friendly, smiling, kind, discreet, beautiful and helpful reception staff to whatever you need.
Have in mind that every person will have to pay 20 euros for city tax upon departure from every hotel in the city.
