We had a lovely stay at this hotel. Very friendly staff especially the cleaner. The location is very central. Close to all of the tourist attractions. Everything is in walking distance. Clean and spacious room. Free wifi.

It was generally a nice stay for 2 nights at Hotel Sampaoli.
It is located at 2/Fold building, no lift. I think the hotel owned the whole floor and then rent the rooms as hotel.

Advantages are:
- friendly staff
- tidy and clean
- antique home decoration
- close city center

Disadvantages are:
- facilities are not enough, there is even no kettles/ glass for having hot water
- wifi not stable
- no air-conditioning
- reception service only 9am-9pm

The best part was the staff -- very friendly and accommodating. Good location and clean rooms. The only negative was the two flights of steps but Rosalia helped me with my bag. No breakfast at the hotel but there are good, cheap eats nearby.

Big room and bathroom by Italian standards. Welcome air con! Terrible wifi. Really dirty and sticky floor. Only given one sachet of shampoo for three night stay, no soap, also only one towel. Excellent Greek eatery next door, Italian a few doors down and bagels a tad further all on the same side. All locals dining in all three. Quiet street. Laundry about 250m away (€3). A barking dog, washing machine upstairs and constant other inconsiderate (all lights left on, shining onto my bed through glass door, loud gossiping, showers and hair dryer use after midnight) guests in the shared bathroom next to my room (which had a private bathroom) did not equal good sleep unfortunately.

Very good hotel, nicely decorated and very clean. The attention was also very good. It is perfectly located. The only thing to take into account if you travel with big bags or have some walking disability is the stairs you need to take to get to the hotel. It is 3 floors with no elevator. But the rest is very good, highly advisable.

We've stayes at Hotel Sampaoli for 4 nights. The hotel is located in the center of Florence and you can discover Florence easily by foot. The Hotel is in an old and charming building and the light is fantastic. The staff at the hotel is charming and friendly. We felt very much at home. The prices are very fair.

Excellent location very near to the duomo and about 15 minutes from the central railway station. The room was OK with a sink inside and the bathroom was shared, but we never have to wait for it. All in all very good place to stay in Firenze!
