The hotel lived up to its name - gioia - a joy to stay there. The staff were very knowledgeable and helpful, even lending a laptop. We had a great room with its own patio area. Bathroom huge. Great location only 5 mins walk to Acadamie in one direction and St Peters etc in the other. Very central with supermarket... More

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
