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.
