Reviewed 19 September 2013

We enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Perseo at the beginning of September. It was clean, conveniently located, and provided a quiet, comfortable refuge at the end of a day of site seeing. The rooms were spacious, had great AC and in-room wifi worked great. Staff were generally friendly, some more than others, and were helpful in making museum reservations and providing directions to great sites. While we had to return our keys each time we left the hotel, the reception desk was open 24/7. This hotel was fine value for a 3 star accommodation.

Pros:
- great location, easy to find and close to the train station
- had an elevator, which was awesome since it was on the 3rd and 4th floors of the building
- great working AC and in room wifi
- breakfast room was open late and had a fine selection of items
- held our luggage after check out for a couple hours


Cons:
- dreadfully small shower, which leaked onto the floor
- impersonal staff, didn't seem to go out of their way to help
- breakfast room was quite small and lines formed at peak hours
- rooms had wall dents and scuffs, could use some repairs or a coat of paint
- beds and pillows were extremely hard

The good: Big bedroom, great location, nice staff

The bad: small shower stall, small bathroom for toiletries, our 5th floor room, 520, we had to lug the luggage up one flight because elevator stopped at 4th floor. Breakfast buffet was very marginal compared to most places we have stayed during this European trip.

Would not give high recommendation for these reasons. But if you want a clean room in a great location, this will work.

My husband and I stayed here for two nights at the beginning of September. As others have mentioned, the reception area is on the 3rd floor (it would be the 4th in the U.S.) and we made the mistake of walking up all the stairs with our big backpacks when we checked in- there is an elevator- use it! The room was spacious by Italian standards and the air conditioning was heavenly to come home to with the sweltering heat we had there. The breakfast consisted of pastries, breads, meat, cheese, boiled eggs, juice, cereal and made to order coffee. We had an early breakfast the first day at 7am and there was only one other couple eating at that time, but the next day we didn't eat until after 9am and the breakfast area was packed. We were lucky to get a table right away, but several other parties had to stand around and wait for a table while we were eating. The one girl bussing tables and making coffee seemed very overwhelmed and could have used some help. Another hotel we stayed at had two breakfast times to choose from to prevent the small area from being overcrowded. I feel like this hotel could use something like that. Some of the people that had to wait seemed pretty annoyed. The location was fabulous- just down the street from the Duomo and an easy walk to the Accademia, the Uffizi and all the other major sights. The staff was nice but didn't seem to go out of their way to make us feel welcome, although we didn't really ask for help with anything. We would consider staying here again- it was clean and a good value for what you got.

Location couldn't be better. Easy walk from the train station and right off the Duomo square so very convenient to all major attractions. Even given this central location, it was very quiet.
The staff was very friendly and helpful. When we checked in with Louise, she didn't JUST give us a map, she took a few minutes to help us get perspective on where we were in relation to the major sites which was very helpful. Not everyone goes to this extra effort.
When I made the reservation I explained that we were celebrating our 10th anniversary. We were given a room with a beautiful view of the bells (room 407) and never had an issue with them waking us up. I don't think they rang until about 8 or 9 in the morning. We were also surprised with a bottle of prosecco!
The room could use some fresh paint and minor repairs but there was nothing that would keep me from coming back and/or recommending to others.

Room Tip: Room 407 (can use elevator or stairs) has a great view of the bells. Never had an issue with them w...

Good hotel in a great central location - we walked everywhere from the hotel. Staff friendly and helpful. Good breakfast. Room very comfortable. Only minor issue was the shower could have done with being re-grouted. Would stay there again.

The location of the hotel is a huge bonus - only 10 minutes from Firenze SMN and very close to all the other main attractions. You can see the Duomo as you step out of the hotel.
The reception staff are all extremely helpful and friendly. They organised flowers for my husband to be in the room on our arrival, as we were celebrating our wedding anniversary and we had a complimentary bottle of prosecco on ice.
Our room was clean and comfortable with ensuite bathroom.
Breakfast was continental style and more than adequate.
We would definitely stay here again and recommend this great hotel to family and friends visiting Florence.
