“Quiet location, spacious room, excellent hosts”
Reviewed 7 October 2010

I went to a conference at Fortezza de Basso with my wife and we had the pleasure of staying at Hotel Sampaoli. This was our second experience on this hotel (we stayed there back on 2002) and as usual the staff was very friendly. Riccardo and Leonardo (hotel owners) spoke excellent English and provided us with city maps and recommendations as to where to eat and what to do.
The staff was incredible warm and personable and they definitely created and hospitable environment.
The hotel is just a few minutes from the city centre and the main Florence's tourist spots. It is really a must-go.

We stayed 3 nights, free wi-fi, Riccardo is wonderful, he helped us with maps, suggestions, always pleasant, friendly. We usually come back around 9:30ish at night, after all our exploring, and he is still there at front desk, should you need anything. I travel many places, and especially in Europe, not many staff service the front desk, let alone stay there til sun goes down.....On to the rooms, clean, neat, convenient sink in room (I really like this), bed covers are worn, but bed sheets (those that touch your skin) are new, crisp, and pressed. Real nice. No breakfast free, but hey, groceries and restaurants are so close to hotel. Will absolutely stay here again. Had a great time. Thanks Riccardo!

This hotel is very close to all the attractions in Florence. The staff was extremely helpful and provided great insights into the city. The rooms are older, but clean.

This small Hotel is such a gem of simplicity in the heart of an adorable Town.
This was my third time in Florence and my second time at Hotel Sampaoli....
Someone might complain for the stairs but this tiny Hotel has everything you need if your goal is to visit the city’s art. It's a family run small inn with clean and comfortable rooms....guide books to read about the art of the town and a kind knowledgeable staff to provide all the information you need....The two brothers who run the place are doing their best to keep the hotel quiet and to keep away possible noisy guests.
It feels like home

I really enjoy staying at Hotel Sampaoli. This cheerful boutique hotel is always my choice for home base when I visit Florence. It's an exceptional value in an excellent location, but, for me, the multi-talented staff is the standout--genuinely warm, gracious, charming, and completely committed to guest service They're extremely helpful, very knowledgeable, and great at patiently answering questions, offering good suggestions. giving clear directions, adept at putting together smooth arrangements for museums, etc., and will even send/receive faxes and make copies. And they are expert at successfully dealing with any travel challenges whatsoever.
Unfailingly, as I leave I'm already looking forward to coming back again.

Incredible location, just a five minute walk from the Duomo and the heart of Florence. Really easy to find walking from the train station. Surrounded by great trattorias; the best food we had during our entire trip touring Italy. The staff was extremely helpful and available to answer questions all day. The rooms were very clean and the hotel was quiet and relaxing. This was my third time to Florence and by far the best hotel I have stayed at; especially for the price. I will definitely be staying here when I go back.
