“Florence with Love”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 October 2013

From the strategic location of the Calzaiuoli hotel, you are in the middle of Florence with all major attractions within walking distance. Our visit to Florence was wonderful thanks to our hotel accommodations at Calzaiuoli Hotel. Our hotel room was spacious, clean and quiet. The delicious breakfast each morning provided the day's start to walk all about the old city and visit museums, points of interests and (of course) shopping. The front desk staff are always courteous, polite and helpful. Highly recommend!

We stayed here during Worlds Cycling and the location was perfect for both touring Florence and for watching the race. The staff was helpful and our room, on the third floor and facing the back, was quiet, roomy and clean. The breakfast was fine. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay there again.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel and our stay was average. We always check tripadvisor before booking a hotel and believe in the hotel ratings. So with all the good reviews, we expected a lot, and I think it fell short.

Upon arriving at the hotel, the man at the front desk told us we were in room 105. Having read all of the 'terrible' one-star reviews on tripadvisor, I knew that all of the worst rooms are on the first floor. So we asked the gentleman if there wan another room on a higher floor we could stay in. He told us all of the rooms were booked and that 105 is all that is available. We told him we can't stay on the first floor because we heard it's noisy from both the street and from the breakfast room in the morning. He kept saying nothing was available, so then we said we would leave since we hadn't paid yet. Suddenly a room on the fourth floor became available! How miraculous!

We go to our room and it's a decent size and looks ok. The location of the hotel is really good as it's right on a busy street and close to everything.

The negatives are, well, the service we got on the first day, and that the bathroom is very narrow. It's like a long hall. The bathtub is open so that water sprays all over the floor. The bed was not very soft either.

The breakfast buffet was included but lacked a lot of good options. There was juice/coffee/tea, some pastries, fruit, eggs, sausages and cold cuts which sounds good but the quality was lacking.

In a nutshell, the hotel was ok, the breakfast was nothing to write home about, but the service on the first day regarding a room change was poor. After having seen where the room would have been, I can't believe they would even offer that room to customers. My advice is that the hotel is ok, AS LONG AS YOU ARE NOT ANYWHERE ON THE FIRST FLOOR, I.E. THE 100'S. You will get street noise (we could even hear the street from the 4th floor so I can't imagine what the first floor would be like) and the rooms are in between the kitchen and the breakfast room so from early morning you will be woken up by kitchen sounds.

Room Tip: Avoid staying on the first floor.

Very nice hotel right in the centre of Florence.You step out onto one of the main shopping street and the bustle of this spectacular city. Its just 100 metres from the Piazza Della Signoria and most if not all the sights.Great restaurants are within walking distance from the hotel so you won't be needing taxis.We had a very nice and very large junior suite which was beautifully decorated and well soundproofed in the newer end of the building.We took advantage of the 3 night stay and got a discounted rate as advertised on their website.Breakfast was simple and nice in quality however its a tight squeeze in the small dining room even early in the mornings.I travel on business to Florence regularly and this is definitely one of the best in the category.Highly recommended at the right rate.

Pros. Spotlessly clean and comfortable room. Quiet (room 211). Friendly, helpful and professional staff. Excellent breakfast. Central location.
Cons. The safe refused to lock and the hair dryer kept coming apart and, despite us asking for these to be fixed, they weren't. Thankfully we had a solid suitcase with good padlock in which to leave our valuables during our stay but that's not the point. If a facility is advertised one would expect to find it in working order in a quality hotel.

This hotel is a block from the Duomo on the main street of Florence so you have an easy walk to almost everything you might want to see. Excellent service behind the desk. Lovely buffet breakfast. Large, well-appointed rooms, especially if you're upgraded. Only negative: because you're in the middle of everything, there is a problem with street noise on the weekends. As someone who lives in a big city, this doesn't bother me; in fact, I sort of like it. So if you need King Tut's Tomb to get some rest, you might want to look elsewhere.

Room Tip: Requesting a room away from the street might help.

Fantastic location! This hotel is located in the heart of Florence; very close to the Duomo, Baptistry, Uffizi, everything. Hotel is quaintly old and as such did creak at night but there were no noises from the outside. Nice breakfast. While efficient, staff were not overly friendly.
