My wife and I stayed at hotel Gioia in October 2013 for 3 nights. The location is excellent! The hotel has an affordable price and is in a great location. Only minutes away from el Duomo and not very far from the train station (Santa Maria Novella). It was in a great central locatoion. We walked to just about everything we wanted to sight see. Piazza della signoria and many museums are within walking distance. The breakfast has small variety, but it is good nevertheless. The only downside we really had from being at the hotel was the bathroom, and specifically the shower. The shower was so small and only had a wrapa around curtain that would stick to your body as you were trying to shower. It made us uncomfortable as we do not know what kind of germs others that have previously stayed at the hotel have, specially after the curtain being wrapped around them. Had the hotel not been in the awesome location that it is in, then the rating would probably be poor in our point of view. The location really does make it that much better. However, if you are not a germ freak and do not mind that kind of thing then this could be a great hotel for you.
