“Perfect location”
Reviewed 30 April 2013

The Bigallo is located on the top floors of a building that faces onto the Duomo square, so you could not get more central. It is an easy walk to the Accademia or the Uffizzi. The hotel is on the main shopping pedestrian mall. The rooms are well appointed and clean. Coming and going from the top floor each day was odd, but not all that much of a problem (make sure to use the elevator when checking in with luggage - it is a long way up the stairs!). The staff were very efficient and friendly, and the breakfast was above average.

Yes, the view is great, but you're not there is sit at your window all day. We had a loft on the 4th floor, but the bathroom was upstairs and tough to get up there. Early evening they lock the door on the 4th floor leading to the rooms, so you have to get off on the 3rd and walk up. My friend got sick and couldn't make it up the stairs; we asked for a handicapped room..and it was handicapped. The shower stall overflowed and the entire bathroom floor got wet; you had to straddle the toilet if the shower door was closed. The entrance is in alley so they lock the doors at night...heaven forbid if there's a fire. They have no ice (for my sick friend) and the staff is as pleasant as a pimple on your nose.

Aside from the cold staff; this is a pretty good place. They charge for WiFi :-(. The entrance/reception is on floor 3. The included breakfast is packaged, not good! The general feel of the place unwelcoming!

The hotel location is the best. Right at the Doumo. There are a few steps up to a very small elevator. Reception is on the 3rd floor so if elevator is out this would be a tough climb. Lobby is adequate, partial view of Duomo. Breakfast buffet room small but clean. Food was typical, not exceptional. Rooms were clean and small which is not atypical. No view, dim lighting. The night we arrived the man behind the desk was wearing a T shirt and looked like we woke him, but the next day the staff was better attired. All were courteous, but none were overtly friendly. Being Centralized it was a short walk to Acadamy, Market, Pointe Veccho and Ufuzzie. Could have walked to train station too, but with luggage and children, we took a taxi.

Only a 5 minute walk from the tain station and very easy to find. Walk out the front door and you are in the Duomo sqaure with breath taking views and smells of the pizza shops all around. Rooms where normal size in Euro standards and well cleaned, Staff was very nice and helped everyway they could. This will be our new hotel to stay at every year we travel to florence. Thank you for making our trip that much better!!

Room Tip: Grab a double room with a double bed and ask for a view of the Duomo if possible.

Reviewed 8 January 2013

We spent 3 nights at Hotel Bigallo which I booked on Venere for a good price first week end of January. The location of the hotel is perfect, I do not think you can find better than that. Apart from the great location it's a modest hotel nothing great, clean room, no view at all as we were on the wrong side but we did not stay much in this room. As any old building you can easily hear noises from dishes in the morning. One thing... breakfast ends at 9:30 !! Way too early we could only manage to get our last one, nothing much to expect here anyway. You'll have to park your car at a partner parking for 24 euros the night. I rated 4 stars for the location, the hotel is nice but I would put 3 if it were somewhere else ;).

Room Tip: I do not remember the name of our room it was 1306, there is no view at all do not pick this one !

Stayed only one night, got a room with dome view from the shower; I was not in the hotel at all but for a short stay and great location is worth it. Payed aprox 100$, bathroom bigger than other European hotels
