This hotel unobtrusively occupies an amazing location on Santa Maria Novella, just moments from the railway station. The staff were charming and helpful. Little touches such as placing mats beside the bed in the evening, with options for the next day sightseeing and weather forecasts, all added to the experience. Most reviewers have mentioned the rooms and decor, which were... More

Location, location, location! Just steps away from the train station, in the beautiful S. maria Novella square, very close to the major attractions! The decor is chic, the room was reasonable in size, breakfast expansive with a spectacular view on the Square! Even if located by Via Delle Belle Donne did not find it noisy, but maybe we were lucky... More

My partner and myself stayed here for 3 nights. This hotel is truly beautiful. The bedroom and bathroom were huge and honestly worthy of 5 stars. Bathroom was marble and the bedroom was simply stunning. The view from the breakfast room was out of this world. The breakfast was fabulous with a wide selection of foods available. The hotel is...

I booked this hotel only a week before arriving in florence and seemed to have gotten a bit of a deal since the rate we paid was 50% cheaper for a basic room and breakfast on only a single website, as such I imagine we got the worst room in the hotel - on that note though we were very... More

Me and my husband stayed at hotel L´Orologio Firenze from 31/July/2014 till 02/August/2014. It was a very nice stay (confort and elegant decor and a great location!). Although our stay was very nice, we had a problem. We are still having a hard time with this point. We have arrived by an Avis rented car, and our car was parked... More

Like Geneva airport... Rolex clocks everywhere as well as other clocks! It goes by the name. A lovely family/privately owned hotel. Choice came from the TripAdvisor recommendation. A personal view- by far it is the best hotel in Florence for location. Very friendly staff, beautifully decorated suites, excellent breakfast restaurant while enjoying panoramic view of Florence. Wifi was also excellent... More

I couldn't not have been happier with this selection. I was only in Florence for the weekend, and it was very close to the train station (which initially worried me a bit), it's easy to find, and easy to walk to the cathedral and other sites in the city center. I was greeted very warmly upon arrival, the room was... More

My husband and I love the modern decor of this boutique hotel. The hotel lobby looks very elegant and the room was really cozy! You will have your breakfast served in beautifully decorated room overlooking the piazza. The location was very good and is very near the train station. But do not consider driving to the hotel as you will... More

We traveled to Florence with another couple the week before Christmas. After reading reviews on TripAdviosr, I chose Hotel L'Orolgio. Great location, helpful and friendly front desk staff, outstanding breakfast with so many choices, tastefully decorated and comfortable rooms. Everything exceeded my expectations. The wifi wasn't very strong in the room, but it was no problem to go to one... More

We visited 3 Italian cities (Rome, Florence and Venice) between December 15 and 28 and we stayed at 4 stars hotels in each of these cities. This is the best one we experienced. The breakfast was wonderful with a lot of choices - including fruit juices, cold cut etc. I personally like the 5 grains bread very much. The bathroom... More
