Lovely hotel, friendly helpful owners. Good rates and close to everything we wated to see. Clean comfortable rooms, good beds. The owners cannot do enough to make yur stay enjoyable, nothing is too much trouble. We will all stay there next time instead of being scattered all over the city.

Room Tip: The suite is lovely for family

Doesn't look like much from the outside but the inside is very nice, clean and spacious. We loved the staff there, they were very dedicated to our happiness and were very helpful and pleasant. They let us keep our bikes inside a common area after dark and we locked them up outside during the day. There's nice carpeted stairs and an elevator although we never used it. In our room we had a huge wardrobe, desk and bed. The bathroom was average size but there was also a kitchen with sink, counter, table, fridge etc. The breakfast in the morning was wonderful. So much to chose from and everything was fresh and yummy. They would also make you drinks if you wanted. There are plenty of pamphlets to chose from sitting around the hotel if you want ideas on what to do while in Florence. The hotel was also in a great location for us. We easily walked to the Ponte Vecchio area, the Duomo, the galleria d'accademia and back to the hotel several times per day. I think the WiFi was only for common areas because I could only get 2 bars up in our room but it was free and there was a common computer near reception that you could use. It wasn't the cheapest place we stayed but we really enjoyed it there and would stay there again for sure.

Returned from spending six nights at this hotel yesterday and honestly couldn't have been any happier with my stay there. The hotel is perfectly located to all major attractions in Florence and about a 25 minute walk to the train station. The hotel staff were amazing. They were all really friendly, helpful and just genuinely nice!
The hotel room was very basic and slightly dated but it was clean and tidy. The bed was comfortable and very clean. They're we're no signs of bed bugs - something I am paranoid about! The bathroom was clean and tidy and there were complimentary toiletries. The shower was a little cramped and there was no bath but this didn't matter to us.
We got a buffet breakfast every morning which was really good. They had everything you could have wanted! Fresh pastries, salami, cereal, yougherts, fruits, toast everything! It really was good.
All in all we couldn't recommend this hotel enough! It really was fantastic!

Hotel Dante is the best value in all of Florence! I stayed in the hotel for 5 nights and was able to easily walk to every museum and landmark in the city. I was graciously welcomed by hotel owner Elton and his lovely wife Rossana who made me feel welcome each and every day of my stay. Owner Elton made several restaurant recommendations the best of which was Que Ganzi only a 5 minute walk away. The room was spotless and bathrooms tidy. The sumptuous breakfast was efficiently served by Julia. I would definately return to Hotel Dante. I could have afforded to pay much more for a hotel in Florence but why when the Dante provided all that I required.

I have just visited Florence with my mum and we stayed in this lovely little hotel tucked away in a small side street 2 minutes walk from Santa Croce square. On arrival we were given a very warm welcome by the hotel owner - he was friendly, knowledgable and nothing was too much trouble....in fact all the staff were really nice. We had a light and airy room on the third floor - there is a lift - but the stairs were good exercise after eating lots of pasta and ice-cream (you must try the ice-cream in Florence - so many flavours!) I would definately recommend this hotel.... wonderful staff, good breakfast, great location.

Such nice staff, really clean hotel, great free breakfast! We were there for a wedding and they couldn't have been nicer about putting up with us. Overall, the place was quiet and really well kept. Great location... definitely recommend this place!

Upon arriving at Hotel Dante in Florence Italy, we were greeted by the hotel owners. They were great ! The elevator was small, but it sure beats lugging all the luggage up the stairs. Rooms were failry big for Italy, but it just so happened that my A/C was broke. It was very hot, so the hotel owner gave us a Fan ! The breakfast was OK to. Assortment of deli meats, cheeses, eggs, cereals, and Java. !
