The room was big and charming, and the staff were fantastic. They were very friendly and helpful. They were always willing to assist and happy to give us some suggestions if needed. The location was very good, right in the centre of the town but it was very quiet at night. We did not hear any noise outside or inside... More

This was my second stay in this hotel (once in summer 3 years ago and once in winter couple of weeks ago) and I enjoyed both times very much. The front desk staff were extremely friendly and helpful, there is always a smile to greet you. The breakfast buffet is amazing, I loved mozzarella and bruschettas. The rooms are full... More

I loved this hotel! We had a family room for four that was enormous and beautifully furnished. We really enjoyed throwing open the shutters in the mornings to check out what was happening on the street below. Staff were friendly and helpful, and breakfast was plentiful. And let's not forget the welcome drinks and snacks - a meal in itself,... More

This hotel was perfect for our stay in Florence. Wonderful location, very close to L'Academia (Michelangelo's David) and a short walk to the Duomo. The room was spacious, comfortable and clean. The front desk staff was amazing - incredibly helpful and pleasant to deal with. They made museum reservations for us, and gave great restaurant suggestions. We ate one night... More

Let me start by saying the reason I did not give this boutique hotel 5 stars. 1st, it is an old building so it smells a little musty throughout, 2nd the walls are kind of thin so I was heard people in the halls and room next to me fairly easily, finally I was a little bummed they would not...

Dear Katandcoot76, thanks for your review. Let’s start by saying we are sorry you found our hotel with a bad smell. It’s true that this is an old building (as I wrote several times the hotel is housed in two adjoining late 15th century palaces ) but I really do not understand why you could “smell mustly throughout”. We do... More

We had a wonderful time! The hotel was older but very cozy and quaint. Room was very clean. The breakfast was excellent and the serving staff was exceptional. The woman at the front desk was especially helpful. Would definitely stay here again.

The IGB hotel was very comfortable and well maintained, and it is a short walk to the city center. Here is an example of their excellent customer service. If you arrive by car, be sure to contact the hotel in advance so that they can register your car with the local police. This will allow you to use some roads... More

Dear Tedphilly, Thanks very much for the nice words you had about our customer service and it’s also good to hear you appreciate our hotel. Let me just write some more details about driving into the city center to avoid misunderstanding with the guests: Our hotel is located into a Limited Traffic Zone (the city center) but if you have...

The location of this hotel is perfect - close to everything we wanted to see. The room we stayed in was old, which we expected, in this location, but it was also dark and not updated at all. The woman at the front desk was very helpful - but the males who took their shifts were not helpful and it... More

Dear Gjpeas, thanks for your review we are happy you did appreciate the hotel’s location in fact the hotel is just few minutes walking far from the main square (Piazza Duomo).

The people at the front desk are very friendly and helpful. They assisted with the booking of trips and taxis. The breakfast spread provided daily was tasty and freshly prepared. I will definitely return and stay in this hotel for my subsequent visit to Florence.
