My husband and I stayed at the Hotel Gioia in November for 2 nights during our trip to Italy. We took the train from Rome and walked from the Santa Maria Novella station to the hotel, which was only about a 10 minute walk. When we got there our room was ready. The hotel staff is really friendly and they... More

This is a nice little basic hotel to rest your head after a day exploring the delights of Florence. But please don't be going expecting frills, as you will not find many. I was travelling with my Grandmother who insisted that she just wanted somewhere cheap and basic to rest her head, however on arriving it soon became apparent that... More

I booked this hotel last minute when heading to Florence. The room is basic yet clean. Its in a wonderful location that is within walking distance of everything. If you are looking for a modest, clean place to rest your head that is close to everything, this is the spot. Staff were attentive and courteous as well.

Hotel Gioia was a decent find for a late booking during the high tourist season. I chose it because I planned several day trips outside Florence. The hotel is about a 10- to 15-minute walk from the Santa Maria Novella train station and two blocks away from the Duomo. All the staff in the lobby were very friendly and helpful.... More

We chose this hotel last-minute on our trip to Florence. The street side is busy but safe and the staff is friendly, helpful and kind. The rooms are spacious, clean and include relatively-decent WiFi and television in a few languages. A decent experience for the money and the staff really made it worth the stay.
