“Nice hotel near the Duomo”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 September 2013

I stayed at Hotel Perseo in Florence for 3 days in early September. We arrived by train and were able to walk with luggage to the hotel fairly easily. It is not the most luxurious hotel but then they do not charge the price of a luxury hotel! The room is standard but the location is excellent. We were a block away from the Duomo and walking distance to practically every other attraction in Florence. There was also a nice breakfast buffet every morning and the staff was always very helpful. The only negatives were that the wifi was a little spotty at times and there was some dust floating around in the air that had my allergies acting up a little bit. Overall it was a very nice experience and I would recommend this hotel to others desiring a fabulous location on a budget.

We took the bell tower view room which was a nice touch. You cannot beat the location of this hotel .. you are right between the train station and steps away from the duomo and all the action. Anything (acedemia, palace, museums ... ) are all 10 minutes walk max.

The rooms were clean, comfortable, and roomy. bathrooms were clear, comfortable.
The reception was fantastic and booked us all kinds of reservations for museums and gave us great advice on our itinerary to help us make the most of our visit.

While listed as a 3 star, it's pretty well a 4 star in our book if you can overlook the elevator for two that comes up to the 3rd floor reception area. The rooms themselves have been recently updated and have great ammenities.

Would stay here again, and highly recommend this hotel for a stay over in Florence.

Room Tip: Clock tower view room was nice but there is not really much to say about the views here... the key...

Arriving from Rome, we loved this hotel. The rooms are bright and larger than in Rome. The wifi was hit and miss which was tough for us to try and call are kids back home. The breakfast was small compared to other hotels, but we were able to get something in us prior to heading out for the day. The staff was very friendly and they provided us with a detailed map and restaurant suggestions right when we arrived. The restaurants they suggested were the best we experienced on the entire trip (Za Za and Giannino). The hotel is located right near the Duomo and it was a perfect location. There are very loud bells that ring each morning, but we were usually up anyway.

This was our first trip to Firenze (Florence) and we stayed at the Hotel Perseo from August 27-September 1, 2013. The hotel is in a wonderful central location and easy to find from Santa Maria Novella train station a short 5 minute walk. Our room on the 4th floor was spacious with a queen size bed and a nice bathroom. The room is large by European standards and was clean and comfortable.

The staff was extremely friendly, helpful and professional. Breakfast was included, served in a bright room with a good selection to start the day off right including that all important cup of espresso. Laura, Tani and all the staff made us feel welcome and comfortable. On a few occasions, for supper, we decided to stop by a local supermarket to pick up salami, cheese, olives and a beautiful bottle of Chianti which we ate in the room. The front desk staff was more than willing to let us borrow plates, cutlery, glasses and of course corkscrew for our meal.

The hotel is situated ~300m from Piazza del Duomo and an easy walk to Galleria dell’ Accademia, the Uffizi Gallery, shops and restaurants. Even though you are in the center of all the tourist sites the hotel was quiet in the evenings and we appreciated the air conditioning at the end of a day of exploring all the sites.

I would defiantly recommend this hotel because of its great location, friendly staff and cleanliness.

Happy traveling.

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.
