Situated a short stroll from the station and town centre, you couldn't ask for a more central place to be... Unless you want a decent night's sleep - which is impossible with the noise from passers by and traffic driving over the cobbled streets at all hours. The place is very historic and quaint but badly in need of major... More

+: location (2 minute walk from train station); sheets and towels were changed every day; breakfast offers good selection. -: The hotel decoration is dated and seems to be a mishmash of whatever they can find to cover holes. In the room (on the 1st floor), the wallpaper was ripped, the windows and curtains were dirty and stained; and the... More

This was so bad that it was stinking. We reached the hotel and first thing we noticed was that it was smelling something. The breakfast seemed to be without much option. The only good thing was that it was near the railway station. Apart from that I don't think it deserves anything.

The location of the Bonciani to the train station and sightseeing was very helpful. The room was average size, but the entire room needs to be cleaned and updated. The bed was hard, and at 5 months pregnant, I didn't sleep the whole night. By far the worst part of the room was the bathroom. The bathroom was a decent... More

This hotel was terrible. The lift wasn't working when we arrived so we had to carry our bags upstairs, although To be fair, they did provide a porter to help. The room was tired looking and in need of refurbishment. There was a block of wood holding the toilet bowl up and the shower was tiny and held together with... More

Despite mixed revirew, this was far better than I anticipated. It's well placed between the railway station & the Duomo and provides the basic necessities required by the traveller - shelter, bed & food. Room was quite small, but quite adequate. Breakfast was very good, with a wide selection available. Would stay there again.

We have been on a trip for 17 days with 5 being here at Hotel Bonciani unfortunatly. I sent an email to Expedia suggesting they consider removing this hotel as management and ownership are not living up to what they offer on website. Internet service is very important for some of us even when vacationing due to family and work... More

This is my second night here in this quirky hotel! The original building (including first & second floors) was built in the 13th century by Alberto Bonciani. It was later used as a convent and also headquarters for the Italian Army during the war. So much of the original building still exists including the amazing ceiling in the reception area.... More

I read about this hotel before I reserved.. That's real that it needs a renovation but these old furniture make this hotel so unique. Very speed wifi.. The staff are more than friendly.. I traveled alone.. It was a safe place

Location is the only thing this hotel has going for it. Close to the train station and all Florence attractions are in good walking distance. Hotel is in dire need of updating. Staff is unfriendly and downright surly sometimes. Breakfast was unappetizing, we ended up going out for breakfast everyday. Our room was dark, in need of paint and beds... More
