We stayed one night in the side building of the hotel. Our spatious rooms downstairs had a smell of damp and mold inside. Otherwise the hotel was comfortable and service was very good. Also buffet breakfast was generous and tasty.

I went there on a school trip in March with my class. We knew it wasn't near the station but 2 kilometres were too much! Besides the buses are disgusting and full of pickpockets so the only way to go there safely is by foot. It is also in a terrible place, with now shops and it's not so easy... More

Dear Valentina, Sorry you have got a bad impression of our Hotel. But it is not our fault the distance from the train station, and the Hotel was chosen by agency and your teachers. We are in a residential area of Florence, with many shops. The zone toward the airport could be poorer of shops! Furthermore, the cleaning of room... More

Main annoyance: We put our luggage on a chair, and each day we would come back and find the luggage removed from the chair (and personal items on the luggage touched and moved to the desk), and the chair relocated. We thought this was strange, and on the third day, we received this notice (verbatim) on our bed: "DEAR CLIENTS,... More

We stayed in a quadruple room which we booked at short notice when we were in Rome. It was very difficult to find any other quadruple room for a reasonable price in Florence and hotel Grifone was both of those. The room itself was clean although it had a musty smell on arrival. The hotel is a good option if... More

This hotel seemed okay when we checked it....the front desk was just okay, not great at all. When we checked in they needed to keep our passports because they did not want to make time to write down the info on them or photocopy them. I did not like that at all. I don't really feel comfortable leaving my passport... More

Went here as part of a tour group. The experience was so bad I considered never taking a tour with this company again. Pros: The rooms are large. Cons: Members of the group were complaining about odd smells in their rooms. I shrugged this off as whining until I visited the rooms. I would have never stayed in such rooms.... More

I am so sorry that Mrs Sarah did not like the room. She could ask to change it, seen that she describe a safari in a jungle and not a stay in a Hotel in a city. I think if somebody spend a so terrible experience, he will complain at the Reception strongly. No complaint we have got about this... More

We stayed in this hotel as part of a cycling tour package so we didn't get to choose where we stayed. When I read the reviews I must admit to being disappointed with the selection. However, I was very pleasantly surprised when we checked in. Rooms are a good size, decor a little old style but clean and comfortable. It's... More

We were very disappointed with the grifone. It is not a 4 star hotel by any standards. We paid for a triple suite with full kitchen. Our room was a detached building In the basement level. It was cold, mouldy in odor, all the cupboards, drawers were locked up and there was no fridge, or coffee pot. No cups or... More

Sorry for the complaint of these Guests, that I remember very well. Just to give a description of the apartment reserved to the Guests, it is almost 40 square meters, so, largely spacious for a good comfort of 4 people. Contrarly to the rest of building, these apartments have own heating / air conditioned system, two TVs, fridges capacity of... More
