Stayed here for two nights in July with my friend and it was honestly the worst place I've ever stayed in. Completely outdated, borderline creepy. Opted to sleep on top of the bed covers with our own blanket over us because the covers looked like a curtain from a medieval castle. The bathroom was new enough but smelled like a... More

I needed a "cheap and cheerful" hotel for three nights in the centre of Florence (my son is a student there) Bodoni ticks all the right boxes, and I recommend it. I've given it three stars, although its a two-star hotel: the bonus is for excellent service, and great value, especially given its location.

The positives are the staff, good breakfast and excellent security with controls to building floor and a room safe. The rooms are cleaned well but there are issues....the furniture isn't really of adequate quality and they are dull but what needs urgent addressing is the air con unit and the wifi. The air con is straight out of the Ark... More

As beautiful as florence is, staying at this hotel leaves you with a real sour taste. The hotel itself is located inside a building that is shared by other firms as well. The lobby for the hotel is on the 4th floor and the rooms on the 1st floor. Each time you leave the hotel, you have to go up... More

Dear Sir, We are very sorry to hear that you were unsatisfied of your stay in our hotel. Our matresses are all renewed a few years ago and may some of them could be hard and some other could be soft but we don't think that there was a massive dent in the middle in one of them. Anyway, we... More

The hotel is located in the city centre of Florence (walking distance from the Cathedral) on the 4th floor of an old building. This has its charme but it might also bring some troubles: the heating system was not working properly and the room was way too warm! Moreover, the shower is not really nice... Apart from that, the room... More

The hotel is on the 4th floor. We stayed there for 2 nights. The room was a little bit small (also the bathroom :) ). Our room was clean, breakfast was good and the location was perfect. Good place for shopping and nightlife :)

Average price hotels quality in Italy is not very high, assuming this, Bodoni is a very well located hotel situated in 1st and 4th floor of a residential building. Its a bit irritating going upstairs in that old elevator to take and leave the key, but its ok. Rooms are average size, bathroom is small and not very modern, I... More

The hotel is basically the 4th floor of apartment building and it seems that the apartments were rearranged into many small rooms by dividing large rooms with drywall and with no acoustic insulation whatsoever. We could hear our neighbors from other room almost as if they were right there with us, there is no sense of privacy! Hotel is around... More

Staying in Santa Croce

Neighborhood Profile
Santa Croce
Stop and stare at the beauty and symmetry of the Basilica of Santa Croce any time day or night. Unraveling around it are a number of architectural and artistic masterpieces, from the Synagogue to the Central National Library. As a hub for young people, the area gets busy with people who want to have fun: a continuous flow of tourists and locals become animated by songs and dances.
