The location can't be better, the Cavour is in the center of Firenze which means that you can walk to every place worth to see in Florence and, there are many. Lovely entrance and lobby, very welcoming, the stair case is beautiful, you can have your "picture moment" already here. But, what I would like you see is the views... More

The initial arrival and greeting of the front desk was impressive. The upgraded room was a nice addition since we were celebrating our honeymoon, but I'm glad we were upgraded because I don't think we could have stayed in a room much smaller. The A/C, or lack thereof, was also a problem throughout our stay. It never really cooled down... More

Hotel is in a great central location. Rooftop bar was a definite plus, great to wind down your day. The room was typical European small, but clean. The breakfast seemed very unorganized, with no one really greeting you. I think the food selection was good, especially since it's a free service.

Best hotel room I've ever had in Italy. Staff very friendly. However, breakfast always seemed to come as a surprise. Served from 07.00...we arrived between 07.30-08.00 and some food laid out but a lack of serving spoons, cold coffee, some breakfast items missing. We didn't complain as we kind of enjoyed the experience (not quite Fawlty Towers but you will... More

The location is one that cannot be beat. Stones throw from Duomo, shopping, Markets, and museums. The hotel itself was a total disappointment. The room was so small, even by European standards. The toilet was noisy and ran constantly. The shower( no tub) was rust stained and so small that I couldn't turn around in it and I am 5'2".... More

Stayed here in 2012 and 2013 and both times good, we have come here with friends who have never been so booked this hotel as we liked it. Very disappointing to say the least, rooms could do with a makeover, not worth the money we paid. The biggest complaint of all is the breakfast, not a great choice, cold food... More

I booked this hotel for two nights according to several good reviews in tripadvisor and booking.com. Email was sent to confirm transportation pick up at the airport a week before. I arrived Florence on 17-Jun-15 at 11.50am. I waited until 12.30pm, but nobody from the hotel showed up. So I called the hotel, but a receptionist said there were some... More

Great hotel close to the Duomo, the Ponte Vecchio and the Piazza Della Signoria. The staff are helpful, the rooms very comfortable indeed, the food is good and the view from the terrace at the top of the hotel is wonderful. We will definitely return again!
