Overall our stay at Residenza Giotto was not horrible, but we did feel slightly misled by the pictures to believe that the bed and breakfast was more up to date than it was. We were first scared off by the very "interesting" entrance into the hotel, which is a musty hallway with a tiny and somewhat frightening elevator that stinks of cigarette smoke. Once you get to the 4th floor on which the bed and breakfast is located you enter into a very small recetption area consisting of only a desk. Our biggest complaint is that this is the only time, other than breakfast and on your deprture when you pay, that you will enconter the owners\staff of the b & b. Celia and George are both very nice, but were never there since our stay was over a wkd. We wanted to ask for recommendations for good places to eat and places to visit, but there was never anyone to talk to. The rooms were adequate, and fairly clean, but our bathroom left much to be desired (our shower was non-existent--only a curtain in the corner with a shower hose). The location is perfect however, you are a perfect distance to all of Florence's attractions. Overall, if you aren't expecting much out of your hotel and just want accomodations with a great location this will work perfectly for you!

We were greeted with a warm smile and the moment we Arrived Every morning at breakfast. George, the owner, served us breakfast Actually Our Every Day The rooms are comfortable and Have clean, fully functional baths. We Had a beautiful view of the Duomo. The bells rang Only A Few Times Each Day However, They Were When They rang loud. This B & B is very close to everything, secure, clean and friendly. I highly recommend staying at Residenza Giotto!

We could not have asked for a more wonderful place to stay in Florence. Giorgio, our host, was very accommodating from the beginning as he used English to direct us to the inn (we were driving). The view is wonderful and the location couldn't be better. Breakfast on the terrace was substantial and we were very well attended to with some extras from Giorgio that were most appreciated. He was very social, excellent with pointing out places to see and more importantly restaurants to visit. Stick with the restaurants your host suggests--We will definitely be back for another visit and it's too bad we didn't spend more time in Florence. I would fly direct next time and skip Rome if you've already done the sights.

The room was roomy and comfortable and the view was great...the staff are not there 24 hours/day but were very helpful. We didn't stay in our room much but slept well. The room was clean and the view from our room as well as the terrace was great. The air conditioning worked well and we didn't have any problem with noise.

We stayed only one noght but would have loved to be there longer. Excellent location right next to the Cathedral Square and three Republicca, stores, museums and the markets could not ask for any more except the roof top terrace for morning cappuccino. Very clean comfortable and a delicious continental breakfast. Highly recommended by friends and could not agree more.

Giorgio and Sylvia couldn't have been better hosts. They made us feel like it was our home. Tip: ask them about wonderful places to visit that aren't in the tour books. -richard

Staff is really on top of things for the entire length of your stay. We spent six nights enjoying a relaxing romantic time in Florence and Pisa. Georgio and Silvia are fantastic hoteliers and do everything to accommodate your comfort. The room and common areas are very clean, well stocked, and the location could not be better! Some occasional night street noise from a few party goers but very minimal. Every care is taken to guarantee your stay in Florence is wonderful. Staff will assist you with Maps, Taxi reservations, Train schedules and more. This is a bed and breakfast and not a five star hotel chain so don't expect that. If you want an authentic feel of Florence, and want to interact with locals, then stay here! We would definitely recommend Residenza Giotto and we would definitely stay here again. Grazie! Georgio and Silvia - Generoso ospitalita! Regards, from Southern California
