“Good Value in a Good Location”
Reviewed 14 June 2013

The hotel is located within easy walking distance to the major tourist attractions in Florence. The rooms are basic, comfortable and clean. Although located on a busy street the noise from the street was minimal. The staff was very friendly, had good tips for places to eat, how to get around and ordering taxis when needed. I had paid more for similar hotels so I found the charge for the room very reasonable for Florence.

Had to change hotels at the last minute and this was what I could find on short notice. Not sure how three stars were awarded.

Sure, it is close to the major sights but then most everywhere in Florence is.

Rooms on the Cavour street side will be noisy

You can do better.

A warm 'molte grazie' to the staff who were very friendly and most accommodating. They certainly helped to make my first visit to Florence a wonderful experience.
Typical Italian breakfast was good and plentiful.. (yogurt, croissants, fruit, coffee, tea, espresso, juice, spreads, etc.). Coffee was the most delightful part of my breakfast. My room was spacious and the bed quite comfortable.
Florence is indeed a compact walking city but this location can't be beat! I was so surprised to see the Duomo literally, 'right down the street'. So many major sights/museums within 5-10 minutes walk (and I'm a 'senior'). I could easily come back to the hotel to drop off my jacket/packages as the day warmed up.
I will definitely stay here again.

Hotel Gioia offers comfort in accommodation and a high level of customer delight through its people. The rooms are clean and facilities adequate. The breakfast spread is fine. To cap it all, it is located right close to the Accademia and not far from the Duomo. Uffizi and other places of attraction are within a walkable range.

Room Tip: Please ask for rooms with a terrace on first floor.

I stayed at the hotel Gioia for 4 nights last weekend, my first as a solo traveller. The hotel is ideally situated for all the main historical sites and close to many wonderful bars and restaurants. Staff were friendly and welcoming and the room clean and I think newly refurbished. Breakfast was basic but filling, the coffee really good. I will definitely return!

Highly recommended!!

The staff is very friendly/helpful. The hotel is quaint, but the rooms are clean and comfortable. Great value for the price. We would absolutely stay here the next time traveled to Florence!
They held our luggage all day after we checked out and were so friendly with great recommendations. Can walk to ALL of the main hot sight seeing spots in Florence :)

Reviewed 25 February 2013

I stayed at this hotel for 7 nights as a solo traveler, all without having booked a reservation. Since I didn't have a specific itinerary, I wasn't sure how long I would be in Florence, and the staff was extremely flexible in booking on a day-to-day basis. The room was clean and adequately sized, with the hotel situated in a perfect location only a few blocks from the Duomo. The service here was excellent; each staff member was very friendly and more than willing to help with suggestions on where to eat and how to get there. I will absolutely stay at this hotel again next time I return to Florence.
