“Fortunately a short stay in Florence this time.”
Reviewed 17 April 2014

I have visited Florence on business trips for the last 15 years using various 4 star hotels in the city centre. This time I opted for the Calzaiuoli.

Positive points:-The hotel is in a great location, near the two main Piazzas. The check-in was seamless, breakfast is good. Waiting and housekeeping staff are good.

Negative points; Florence was very warm during my stay but the hotel had turned the air conditioning off!! When I mentioned this to to reception they advised to open the windows. As a frequent visitor to Florence I asked about mosquitoes which get into the room at night...Reception advised that there are no mossies at this time of the year!!. Via Calzaiuoli is very noisy so opening the window is not an option even with ear plugs so we opened the bathroom window on the quiet side and awoke to to find that I had over 20 huge mosquito bites over my head and body. Reception lied, they are being cheap by turning the air-con off. Four days later I am still suffering and angry with Reception for their lies. Next...there is only one power point in the room to charge all your phones, tablets etc, try juggling chargers! Next, the very small TV is jammed into a narrow cupboard at a strange angle and when the cupboard door is opened the TV is out of sight from the room sofa! During check out The reception kept me waiting while he talked on the phone for at least 10 minutes, waving his arms and walking up and down, ignoring me.
A strange mix of acceptable and downright awful.

Stayed her for 3 nights in late March 2014 in one of the Prestige renovated rooms in the front. Had a great view of the street below which was only rarely a noise problem. The reception desk staff were helpful and the buffet breakfast was the best we had in Italy - great hot and cold selections including eggs, pastries and smoked salmon. Can not beat its location, one direction is the Republicca Plaza and the other the Duomo. Walked comfortably to every museum and church we wanted to see. Room was spacious, clean with an okay size bathroom. Would strongly recommend to friends.

Florence is beautiful and we had a great view of the Cathedral Dome from our room. Nice big room with a day bed which we did not need but if traveling with third person would work well. Fine if small bathroom. No shower door so floor tended to get pretty wet. Comfortable bed and good lighting. No AC in April so we were forced to keep the windows open which in Florence means biting insects. Not too bad and understand about energy conservation but would have preferred the option of AC for the above reason. OK breakfast but nothing special. Right in the center which is convenient but noisy, crowded and VERY touristy. You might consider a hotel on the river which will be less of a tourist area, better restaurant choices, quieter at night but still pretty.

Room Tip: Rooms 410 to 414 are top floor and probably all have good views of the Cathedral dome. I reserved a...

We stayed here for 4 nights. This hotel is perfectly located in the historic centre and close to all attractions. The staff are welcoming, professional and speak perfect English. We were married in the hills nearby (Fiesole) and the staff surprised us with a bottle of Champage which was delivered to our room while we were out ... it was a lovely touch and was a perfect ending to a perfect day. The breakfast, which was included in the room rate was fantastic and offered variety. The waitresses were lovely :) Our room was 401 which overlooked the Duomo. At night, the view was spectacular! I would not hesitate to stay in this hotel again. Perfection!!

Room Tip: Room 401 was quiet and offered a perfect view of the Duomo :)

Two years earlier my husband and I visited Florence as part of a "second honeymoon" and stayed in a much more luxurious expensive hotel. This time we were visiting our son, a student in Italy for the semester and our goal was a decent, clean hotel, both near our sons apartment and easy to get around Florence. This hotel was both. Clean, friendly, good breakfast, reasonable size room and bath. If your intent is a good place to stay without being fancy then I would highly recommend The Calzaiuoli Hotel.

This hotel is perfection in every way. If you are looking for the perfect location, superior service, and gracious hosts this is the hotel for you. It is spectacular in every way !! Every morning you have access to a wonderful breakfast at the hotel and within minutes you arrive at the Duomo or Piazza Republica or the Uffizzi or the Ponte Vecchio.

We loved our stay at Calzaiuoli Hotel. The staff was friendly and cooperative, we could walk to everything we wanted to see, the breakfast was great, and we would stay there any time we come to Florence.

Room Tip: Try to get a room not facing Via Calzaiuoli if possible.
