Very nice clean hotel with a great breakfast. Also, the hotel is very well situated. My only complaint was the mosquitoes that got to me in the bathroom due to a small hole in the marble they used to get in...

This is an outstanding hotel, within a two minute walk from the train station and the Duomo. The hotel is tastefully decorated with a theme of clocks. The bathrooms are gorgeous and the shower was fabulous with great water pressure. The sheets were changed daily and the bed was really comfortable. A high quality hair dryer was provided.

Upon arriving at the Central train station, we were surprised and relieved the hotel was so close (10 min walk), and in such a superb location for exploring the beauty of Florence. Minor works directly outside the hotel did not really impact on access, as a path was created for guests to enter via side entrance. The Piazza itself was... More

We stayed in the room "King of Saudi Arabia" which gave us a laugh. Nice sized room, very comfortable bed and nice linens, loved the big bathroom. Great location, walk to everything, and very cool bar! Would stay again for sure.

The room was beautiful, the staff were fantastic. Good location and just amazing all around. Loved the restaurants, really close by. The train station was a block away. It was just the best experience all around.

This was our second stay at the L’Orologio. The choice was obvious for us. The location is not to be beat. If you’re arriving by train, exit, cross the street, turn into the Piazza Santa Maria Novella. The location is within walking distance to all the major attractions, and most day trips organized by tour companies depart from the train... More
