Reviewed 30 April 2013 via mobile

It really depends what you are after? Staff were fantastic, friendly, there was a kids play area with play station and DVDs for the room. However the rooms were VERY noise sensitive, almost unbearable especially at night. Clean for sure and beds comfortable. But wifi didnt work in our room at the end of the corridor. Sheets and doona had old stains and marks. Breakfast was appalling -hard stale bread, old fruit, no milk was even put out. However if you're young backpackers or young family maybe this is great! But other than that I would not recomed it.

Upon arrival, this hotel was a little daunting since the front desk is located on the second floor. There is a tiny (one person) manual service elevator to use to load your luggage in order to avoid lugging it up the stairs. There are no signs when entering from the street level, but the hotel staff were friendly and helpful. Close to the city center and the Accademia and all of the other sights.

This Hotel was a pleasant surprise. Located on a second floor with a tiny elevator, the rooms were spacious and breakfast each morning with owner Marco was a delight. Close enough to the city center to be a short walk from all of the sights and activities without the overwhelming crowds. We really enjoyed our stay here.

We stayed here for 3 nights during our Italy vacation and it was the highlight of all our accommodations. We absolutely loved this place! The staff was the friendliest people you will ever come across. Very welcoming. The breakfast was great. A great quiet location close to the heart of Florence. I would never stay at another place if I ever get the chance to visit Florence. You won't find a better place.

After travelling for 3 weeks in Europe my fiance and I stayed here and it was a warm and refreshing atmosphere. The owners and staff are extremely helpful and give you plenty of advice about great places to visit and restaurants to eat at etc. Tito's is our favourite, just around the corner from the hotel. If you want a hotel that is financially cost effective, has clean and comfortable rooms and a great location with unbelievable staff then this is the place for you. Just look at all the reviews, made by real people, and I expect generally down to earth travellers. As for location, absolutely perfect.....a short walk from the main train station and five minutes from the Duomo. Magnifico....

Hotel Giglio is one of the nicest and friendliest hotels my family and I have ever stayed at. We spent 6 nights there. Our rooms were very clean with big ensuite bathrooms and extremely comfortable beds.
The buffet breakfast provided was excellent and varied. Their cappuccinos were delicious too!
The owners Marco and Manuella are a charming couple and made us feel at home. Nothing was too much trouble for them. The other staff were also friendly and helpful too. On the day we left Marco kindly gave us a lift to the train station but he would not accept any money for his trouble.
The hotel is in a very good location and within short walking distance to the main tourist sights. If we visit Florence again we will definitely stay here without a doubt.

Very nice place to stay in Florence, the hotel owners and staff were very welcoming and friendly. It felt like going to stay with friends. The room was quaint, bed was comfortable, breakfast was plentiful and delicious, and we felt at home. There were movies, games and toys in the lobby for our 5-year old daughter to play with.. Very family friendly in general! To top it all, one of the owners (Marco), gave us a ride to the train station. Beautiful experience; look forward to returning there many more times in the future. Highly recommend this place.
