Just down the street from the duomo. Was a great spot and the staff were so friendly. They served a lovely breakfast and couldn't help us more. The room was a good size, very clean too, which is always a must for us. Easy walk to anywhere in Florence. Has all you need!

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in April. Having traveled to other parts of Italy, we were prepared for the rather low hotel standards in the country. Hotel Gioia is classified as a 3-star hotel, but it would only be a 1-star hotel in other western European countries at roughly the same price. Its location... More

We stayed here for a night on a quick trip from Rome to Florence. The hotel is easy to find from the train station. While my boys were disappointed that this 3 star hotel from a booking site was not intially as nice as they were thinking, they quickly changed their mids when they found free wifi and a sizeable...

We found Hotel Gioia very suitable for our needs in Florence. We arrived by train and it took about 15 minutes to walk there with our cases , a little longer than we thought but it was very busy and only narrow footpaths and the fact we weren't sure where we were going didn't help, after a day or two...

We spent two days in Florence on a recent trip to Italy and picked this hotel because of the good reviews and its location. While it was not quite what we expected, it was decent considering location and cost. We had two rooms for our party (62 & 66). They were both pretty similar. One had a larger bathroom and... More

We had a great stay here. The location was prefect, just 10 minutes from the train station and a shirt walk to major attractions. The room was clean, the bathroom was very small but suited us just fine. Staff was awesome and the breakfast was basic but ok.

I love to this hotel and their staff. When I first came up the service elevator, Allenn was there waiting for me because they saw me coming in the hallway and took care of getting my bags out of the elevator for me. He told me to proceed to the desk so I can check in. I did arrive early... More

We were in room 84. Negatives: This hotel is old, small, stinks of mould, our toilet actually had a lot of mould growing underneath the rim. Mould takes a long time to grow in a toilet so it had not been cleaned for a very long time. There was a large build up of flint and some mould in the... More

Biggest room I've ever seen, very comfortable beds. Big bathroom with bathtub. Fantastic location, 2 minutes walk from the Galleria dell'Accademia and the Duomo, from there you reach 90% of the old city in less than 20 minutes. You just park in front of the hotel and the staff parks your car in the garage nearby and brings it when... More
