“One of the Best Hotels of our Italy Stay”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

From the very beginning the experience was fantastic! We were on our honeymoon in Italy and so I requested a room overlooking the garden in the back (room 14). The room was gorgeous, clearly recently renovated with a beautiful bathroom and a stunning view of the garden in the back. At check in the lovely women at the reception desk gave us a free map and took the time to explain where the bus stops were to get to central Florence (bus 11, 17) and the stop for the bus that circles Florence (bus 12) in case we wanted to get to the other side of the river. They also marked down some recommended restaurants for us (da Ganino was one of my favourite restaurants in Italy!) which was a lovely touch. The location was quite good but it is worth knowing that it is not in the center of town, it's about a 20 minute walk in (which was great for burning off all the carbs from the pasta!). We didn't find this an issue at all. If you're coming from the Santa Maria Novella train station you can take bus 11 or 17 which stops a block away from the hotel. If you're coming from the airport the cost of the taxi is ~25 euro (always negotiate price before you get in the taxi). The crowning touch of the hotel was the breakfast which was fresh and had a ton of variety including a cappacino/coffee machine that you could use. Tables were set up outside in the hotel's garden to eat breakfast in the gorgeous greenery.

Room Tip: Room 14 has a gorgeous view of the back garden and has a little balcony as well.

This was a great find for us. Staff were friendly and exceptionally helpful (not only recommending great restaurants nearby but reserving a table for us). Its true it's not next door to the main attractions but let's face it, you're in Florence - is going for a walk ever a bad thing? Beautiful garden where you can eat your breakfast before setting out on your adventures. Their reserved parking while not on site was easy to find and close by aswell.

Had a wonderful 3 days at this hotel. Friendly staff, Great inner garden. A given if you can find a room. Breakfast included. A keyless system for coming and going, both to the front door and to the room. A bit hard to find the hotel. Take a Cab or bring a detailed map.

We recently travelled to Italy for a spring vacation and stayed at several different places and this one was our favorite for attentive personnel. We were so impressed with the staff that helped us in many ways. For example we had to leave very early one morning before breakfast service. Without asking we were brought the evening before our early start a full and complete breakfast for our little fridge for the next morning!
This place is a little outside the center of activity, we enjoy walking and most days we just walked the 20 plus minutes to the places we were visiting. For days where your energy level is a little low, the bus stop is only a short block away.
Our room was on the ground floor overlooking the beautiful back garden; it was big, spacious and kept very clean. One lazy afternoon we rested in the garden on the comfortable furniture, a real haven of tranquility.
The breakfast was a tasty standard; croissants and pastries, yogurt, bananas and good coffee.
We miss you Francesca, you were the best and friendliest of our trip.

The staff is very friendly and accommodating. The hotel is very lovely with a beautiful little garden (with a little turtle that mu daughter loved). We enjoyed our breakfast out in the garden our first morning there, the second it had rained. Breakfast had a nice section. It was a walk from the heart of Florence, but we didn't mind it. We enjoy seeing the non-touristy areas of the city. There's a really nice restaurant a short walk down the road where you get authentic Italian food without the touristy twist and prices. Overall lovely stay and we'll definitely stay here next time we visit Florence!

Relais La Corte di Cloris was a nicely appointed hotel a little outside of the city center, with enchanting gardens and friendly service. If we're ever back in Florence, I'm not sure I'd head back to Relais with so many options in the same price range.

Pros
-The gardens were very nice, tranquil and relaxing.
-Friendly service
-Nice large rooms, closets
-Clean

Cons
-We were charged an additional $40 per night for our son, which I hadn't originally included in the reservation. We were told this was because they needed to "pull out the sofa bed". It seemed like an excessive charge for something we can do ourselves and for a child. Of the 6 hotels we stayed in, Relais was the only hotel to charge us.
-It was a tad far from the city center/attractions, but definitely walkable.
-Limited options for breakfast

Dear Sharon and Family, thanks for having spent some time to write this review and for your kind words!

We are sorry for the inconvenience with the extra charge, but unfortunately the italian law don't allow three people to sleep in a double bed. It's a safety measure and we have to take care of all our guests. Furthermore, in our website you can find all prices for extra beds according to the ages of the children. Maybe for next time it's better if you advice the hotels previously that you are travelling with your son, just to avoid further problems.

In any case we hope that you enjoyed Florence and would be glad to welcome you and your family again!
Best wishes

Reviewed 30 April 2014

We stayed here for three nights in April. The bedroom we got was not really ideal, it did not face anything, so we did not have much sunlight or any view.
The main thing that bothered me, though, was the location. It would seem from the map that the location is good, but it really isn't ideal. Every night we were in the town, we dreaded having to walk around 20-25 minutes through not very pleasant or busy streets to get to this place.
Other than that, the room was clean, although they don't change the sheets every day. The receptionist was friendly and helpful. The breakfast was what you would expect from a 3-star hotel. The garden is pretty. Location is really not ideal though.

Dear Claire,
I'm so glad to hear that you enjoyed almost everything in our relais starting from the room, the breakfast, the garden and all the effort we made to make you feel as at home.

I think that your review will be very helpful to our future guests pointing out that we are 1km away from the Duomo cathedral (15/20min walk) but any way I dont hide my displeasure for the 3 out of 5 you gave to us just for the location.

Best regards,
Denis and all the staff of "La Corte di Cloris"
