“Clean, comfortable, well located and gracious staff”
Reviewed 1 April 2011

I would recommend this hotel highly. The staff is lovely, the rooms clean and comfortable, the location ideal. There is no restaurant in the hotel but it is across the street from one and next door to another if you do not like to walk far for dinner. Its location in the center of Florence is also ideal.

Just returned from Italy and spent 3 nights in Hotel Benivieni which I found on trip advisor. The hotel was on a quiet street in a central locatioin. Traveled with my two teenage daughters and my husband. The family room was large enough for the four of us. The hotel was very clean and the staff attentive and helpful. Breakfast was adequate. Would definitely recommend and would consider staying at this hotel again if I return to Italy.

I have been staying in this hotel for the past 10 years everytime I visited Florence. The people running the hotel are very nice and warm and thoughtful! This hotel is located in a very convenient place and is a hidden gem. Peace and quiet and comfort are very good description of this hotel. Facilities are clean. This hotel is conducive for both business and pleasure trip. Opting to stay in Hotel Benivieni is a smart decision and cannot be wrong.

We had a wonderful stay at this charming family hotel in Firenze! The location couldn't be better, just a few steps away from the Duomo and in a quiet street with the delicious Gromm gelatteria, one of the best ice cream in our lives! Good restaurants near by and an easy walk around all the major attractions. Sonia, the owner, is always ready to help, as for the entire family who we found to be all very nice. It was a pleasure to get to know them.
We felt very lucky to have found this hotel on Tripadvisor. We would definitly recomend this hotel when in Florence!

This is the first time that my wife and i have booked a hotel online. What a truely fantastic find plus we even stayed an extra night!!! (and we would certainly return)

When i read the reviews i am always very sceptical - has the hotel written them themselves?? This hotel is one of the cleanest we have ever stayed in. Via D Oche really is one street away from the Duomo. (Trip Advisor map is slightly wrong!) For the price that we paid we really can not fault it. It is a quiet, very well kept hotel. My only slight criticism would be that there is no tea/coffee facilities in the room. Reception did say that if we wanted a drink then they would make one for us. The room was small but the bed was very comfortable and a lovely clean bathroom. TV in room - no English channels - but i didn't go on holiday to watch TV.

We are a young couple and we had a lovely stay, i would certainly return! Thank you

So you all know, my partner & I have been to over 200 hotels and resorts worldwide. I am a 1Million Mile Flier. We have extensive experience with cultures and places worldwide.

We have NEVER encountered such complete dishonesty and complete fraud in any place ever.

You should not stay here. You have been warned.

I made reservations for six nights. Upon check-in, the place was very noisy. They refused to allow us to change rooms. The internet did not work. The phone did not work. The A/C and heater did not work. After two nights of no sleep Sonia said we could check out. We only had to pay for the two nights we were there, They would help us find another hotel room and would not charge us for six nights, only two. We paid for the two nights and departed.

After we returned home the hotel charged us an additional four nights after we checked out . This is without our approval or knowledge or signature. We disputed the charge. You should stay away from this place.

Do not give them your passport and do not give them your credit card number.

Just few words to say that if we'd made illegal charges we'd lost the dispute with the credit card company. The charges were due.
