Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 July 2013

This is an older style hotel within 10 minutes easy walk of the Museum housing the real David along with the Duomo. The hotel is exceptionally clean and all the staff spoke perfect English and super helpful with advice and recommendations of sight seeing attractions. Breakfast was exceptional, rooms very quiet and have private bathrooms and reverse cycle aircon. Marco and his team really do provide service above and beyond expectations. We will be back.

Stayed: July 2013, travelled with family

This hotel was overall 3 to 4 star. The staff was helpful and spoke good English. The room was good size for a quad. The main problem was old uncomfortable beds. The other problem was a shower/tub with only half a shower curtain. You had to stand in corner to keep from getting water on the floor. Location was very good to walk to Duomo and Uffici gallery. Bus stop was close and train station only 10 minute cab ride.

The staff at this hotel went out of their way to make us feel welcome and to be sure we had a wonderful time in Florence. Breakfast was lovely, including fresh fruit salad and many choices. The location is good but keep in mind that using the bus system takes longer than walking and the hotel is on the edge of city center (and far from some parts of the city). The hotel has been recently remodel and the room was quite comfortable. It was our best hotel in Italy and we'd stay there again.

Hotel located on 2nd floor of old Florence Bldg. Hotel has alot of character and hotel staff is very service oriented. Great location - walking distance to everything including train station. The owner, Marcos, is very friendly and spend some time with us during breakfast identifying a good day of Florence sightseeing and marking our map for route. You can't go wrong with Hotel Giglio.

Room Tip: Our room had view to an interior atrium. Nice and quiet, away from main road.

Nice place. Super clean. Owners are pleasant and hooked us up with rides to train station without us asking. Both are classy guys.

Beds are not for tall folks. I'm 6'5" and they have wooden head and foot boards. I could not lay straight. Had to curl all night. Sleeping was horrible for me over several days.

It is a healthy walk to about anything, so we took taxi's one way and typically walked back. The upside is it is quieter at night. Breakfast was nice and staff are friendly.

This is a great low budget hotel, not far away of the main attractions of the city. The room was very clean but the bathroom has an step that if you do not pay attention could result in an accident. My suggestion is to change the color of the floor tiles would be enough to prevent an accident. The hotel manager was very nice and in the morning he will come and talk to you about your plans and suggest what to do. The breakfast was very good.

Hotel Giglio was fantastic. The staff were super friendly and helpful. Breakfast had a wide variety of choices and everything we needed.

Hotel Giglio is not in the centre of town but only a 10 minute walk to everything. Highly recommended!
