“Best value in Firenze”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

The location is just perfect, close to all attractions and great restaurants. The rooms were spotless, all brand new, tastefylly updated in contemporary style. We really liked their breakfast, all fresh and very healthy foods. The terace on top of the hotel has absolutely stunning views over the city. It is located on the third floor, no elevaror, so it is a goog excersize. The stuff was super friendly and helped us with our luggage. They exceeded our expectations, very nice people! We can highly recommend this hotel!

Florence is mighty expensive at any time of the year and even in early spring the Cardinal was far from cheap. The claim is a panoramic view and our room did have a nice aspect on to the Duomo roof. The room was very standard in terms of amenities, but the obliging staff did swap the duvet for blankets. (Is there anyone else out there who hates duvets too?). Breakfast was in a lovely light room and had everything you need before a day of sightseeing. The young guys were really helpful at reception so it was a pleasant enough experience.

The hotel is in an ideal location, right in the heart of the city centre, so you can walk to all the sights within 30 mins tops. The staff were friendly and helpful.

A few problems:
1. It is on the 4th floor and there is no elevator - so it's a good work out carrying a suitcase up to the hotel!
2. I had to change rooms on my second day as they had overbooked and the receptionist sort of forced me to pack my things and move rooms at 12pm even though I told her I was late for a tour and had to go!..I was late for my tour
3. The breakfast was very, very simple. They had no kind of juice, no toaster to toast the bread, and cheap cereal and buns
4. The bed was VERY hard, and so I hardly slept any of my 3 nights there

For a budget hotel, I would recommend it, but expect a 3* service/room.

We've stayed there for 3 days in July 2010.
Great place if you are on a budget, right in the middle of the old city, just steps to all important attractions. Great open air restaurant right around the corner as well as good groceries and vine cellars.
The step to the hotel floor are narrow and many, I agree, but with all the food I indulged myself in Italy, I welcomed this unexpected exercise. Although I could see how it could be wearisome for elder people.
The staff is very helpful - they even picked up an Amichi Deglu Ufizzi pass which I ordered online, although it is completely not their responsibility. Breakfasts were nice and dining room looks over old Florence roofs and has great view of Duomo.
