On arriving in at Hotel Bigallo I was hugely impressed by the location across the way from the Duomo but then we tried to get our bags into a lift big enough for 2 people with bags - tight squeeze! If this lift breaks down whilst trying to get bags up (and it did during our stay) then this could be a major problem as no-one to help with bags. Stairs again going to our room on 1st floor was a problem to carry my heavy bag again as no-one to help. The view from our room looking directly at the magnificent Duomo was hugely impressive but not too impressed to be woken up at 7am for the next five days! Bell is incredibly loud and is rung every hour so if you want to sleep ask for a quiet room perhaps. I wish someone had told me about 'white night' as this was an all night party and shopping for 1st May (which was awesome) but 'live' music right outside our window was really loud so never slept a wink. The staff at reception very helpful and friendly and breakfast each morning very adequate. Typical european breakfast of boiled eggs, yogurt, cheese and ham with breads. I thought the location was awesome to start off with but there are so many hotels on each corner in the centre of Florence that each one is amazingly located. All in all, our room was very comfortable, loved the hotel but definitely wouldn't stay again because of location.
