“Best breakfast ever!!”
Reviewed 16 November 2013

We got to our room, generously sized for urban Europe. And then, we looked out the window, and we were very happy ;^). Bathroom was awesome, staff were great. Easy walk to the Duomo, and everywhere else. Beautiful breakfast room with a great selection. Good restaurants near the market, about five minute walk.

Room Tip: Get the "room with a view" if you can.

We had a great stay at the hotel at the end of October. The hotel is conveniently situated between the railway station and the historical sites. The accommodation is comfortable and well maintained, the breakfast surpassed our expectations, and the staff were professional and accommodating. We would definitely stay at the Caravaggio if we were to make another visit to Florence.

The Hotel is a short walk from the Florence Train station and is within walking distance to all major sites. The hotel staff was very friendly and inviting and was very helpful in giving us suggestions as to what to see and do in Florence. The rooms was very clean and comfortable with very good wifi access. The breakfast wass very good with a good selection of items to choose from. We had a very enjoyable stay and will stay there again the next time we visit Florence.

The hotel is 7 mins walking from Santa Maria Novella and also walking distance from most of the tourist attractions. The reception was very helpful with all the information we needed and also helped us to book our one day Tuscany tour. The breakfast is very elaborate and nice. The only thing that we didn't appreciate was the room size, though the room was clean and had all basic amenities it was too small (we stayed in room 108 probably that was very small).

The hotel has a good location,close to all attractions in Florence.
The room was very clean, a plaisant combination of antique ( some furniture) and modern (the bathroom).Excellent desk staff, kind and helpful and a very good breakfast.We had a great vacation in Florence and we are eager to return some day and to stay again at this hotel.

My wife and I stayed at Caravaggio in early October, 2013, for 3 nights and found the experience to be overall quite good. The staff was terrific; everyone spoke excellent English, was helpful, pleasant and overall very approachable. Top notch. The location was good, close to the central train station (SM Novella) and major attractions. Our room was dated, but functional, and breakfast provided everything we needed in preparation for a day of sight seeing. Overall -recommended.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a shower stall instead of a bathtub. Showering in the tub is both uncomfortable...

We stayed here in May 2013 after being in Rome for six nights. The hotel has a good location, a 10 minute walk to the train station and the Duomo add another 10 minutes to your walk and you can be just about anywhere. The room was average and not well appointed. Our room faced the street which we found to be very busy and noisy, I would request a room away from the street on another visit. The breakfast buffet was adequate, not very fancy but had good food. The staff at the front deck was excellent. They arranged a day trip to the wine country for us that turned out to be wonderful. They also encouraged us to not take a tour to Siena but simply take a bus to the town and back for the day which also turned out to be a good recommendation. They were also good at providing excellent recommendations for food, and wine along with directions. I would stay here again but ask for a room away from the street.

Room Tip: Request a room away from the busy street.
