We stayed at the hotel for four days. Stuff was very nice and helpful. Room was perfectly cleaned every day. Beds were very comfortable. Quiet area. Best pizzas nearby. Breakfast was nicely served by a very nice and warm seniora.

We spent 4 nights at this hotel and found it to be conveniently located for visiting sites in Florence either by foot or by bus. The staff at the front desk, especially Griselda and Cristina really made our visit special and gave us great recommendations for catching the bus to some of the sites and for restaurants in the area. The breakfast room is very nice and offers a variety of items. Request a renovated room if you can (the old skeleton locks require deftness and patience) and the elevator is pretty small, we took the stairs which helped justify our gelatos.

Room Tip: Renovated room are above the second floor. They hope to finish the renovations next year.

Hotel is in residential area, but good walk to the city center. Our family had the entire top floor rooms with a great balcony. Rooms are clean. Staff was very helpful and accommodating. The breakfast lady made wonderful morning cappuccino, hot cocoa, personally delivered to your table, which was very sweet and homey. Food selection was beyond a regular continental style.
We'd love to come back!

We had reserved this hotel for january 4 to the 10th 2013 in early Decemeber 2012. As with many complaints with the Orcagna hotel, we were whisked away to stay at the Jane Hotel right across the street. We were told that we couldn't stay at the Orcagna and that we would be better off at the Jane Hotel which was owned by the same owner and had a better reputation and value.

The reason for booking the Orcagna Hotel was based on the positive reviews. We cannot give the same reviews that were written on Orcagna for the Jane hotel. Our room and experience did not match what we were lead to expect. We complained and were told that this was our only choice.

Well I would hope that trip advisor can help future travelers concerning the Orcagna hotel with wrongful bookings being taken by this hotel and then when the hotel is full, bring those over-booked guests to the Jane Hotel. Had I known,we would have booked at a next best choice.

Here are a few comments on Room 25 at the Jane Hotel - the walls had humidity stains in the room and bathroom - ok cleanliness - so so breakfast. The Orcagna reviews are much better than these. We lost out on this one.

We should have taken photos - Room 25 - too late.

Quite happy with our stay here. We thought their standard room would be uncomfortably small and their location would be a pain to deal with, but their low cost would make it ok... It turned out that the size of the room was more than adequate for the two of us and turns out that the majority of the things to do in Florence are within a 15-20 minute walk from the hotel... We were pleasantly surprised with this place.

The Hotel Orcagna is good value for money, a bit far from train station, but hey it doesn't cost a bomb either. The reception ladies are ever helpful (she even prepared breakfast for us at 5.45 AM on the day of our checkout). We were in room 42, looked a bit tired but was adequate. We loved our long walks everyday to city center. Breakfast served was good with cereal, pastries, fruit, rolls, yoghurts, jams, some amazing biscuits (we bought similar biscuits from Conad nearby), breakfast lady promptly made cappuccino and kept on replenishing. When you are in Florence, you just cant stop falling in love with the city and its people. Dont miss stunning views from Piazza Michelengelo.
