“Sweet hotel near the Duomo!”
Reviewed 5 May 2013

What a great find! This is a small hotel located very close to the Duomo. As others have mentioned one has to climb a few steps to reach the hotel, but it is well worth it. The rooms are lovely, lots of gilding! The room and bathroom were very clean. We stayed in the Leonardo room and had our own bathroom, which was small but sufficient. The staff were so helpful and pleasant. I can't wait to return and stay here again.

We stayed here based on a recommendation on Reid's Italy and were quite happy with it. We were in the Rafael room which was small but perfectly acceptable compared to most European hotels, and importantly has its own bathroom which not all rooms do.
The location was great, if I poked my head out the window I could see the Duomo which was only a 5 minute walk away on the same street. I would stay here again when in Florence.

Stayed October 2012, travelled as a couple

This hotel has an excellent location to discover the highlights of Florence. The owner and his staff are very friendly and helpful! The rooms are cleaned every day. The room "Michelangelo" is the most beautiful, then "Botticelli" and "Raffaello". I return every year!

Room: The room was big and beautiful! There was free wifi as well. The only downside is they don't clean the room efficiently nor change the towels! Also, there were only 2 towels available for 3 guests. There were also mosquitoes around. There's a fan and a/c as well but it gets cold during the night.

Location: very close to S.M. Novella and Cathedral. There are also many shops, restaurants, gelato and money-exchangers around.

This hotel is located on the 3rd floor of an old building which means...no lifts! Not recommended for old, lazy, handicapped people.

Breakfast was poor. Few breads, lots of spreads, an orange juice and coffee/hot choco (which was yummy!)

They can book tours for you which is a plus!

The conceirge is not available at night but you can call them using the phone in your room. Junko and the other guy at the conceirge were helpful though.

Room Tip: Michaelangelo room :) 2 twin beds, 1 pull-out bed and 1 king/queen sized bed.

I have really had a very good experience in hotel abaco, its rooms well furnished and the staff very helpful and the service , the breakfast was simple but the fact that it is included in the price was very convenient, the clients are allowed to use the breakfast room to eat there, I stayed there one week and it was very expensive to have lunch and dinner in the restaurants, so buying food and eat it in the breakfast room of the hotel was something extra of the services that the hotel offering...
