Very knowledgable and accomodating staff whether it be directions, information, calling a cab or helping with our luggage. Walking distance to Doumo and most main attractions. Clean, nice continental breakfast. Was very happy with my this and would absolutely return!

like other reviews, we loved this hotel. Charming, welcoming, comfortable and clean. We stayed three nights - we moved from room 19 (street side) to room 10 (bigger with large bathroom) as the noise from the street was a bit loud for us given we had been travelling a lot and needed to catch up on some sleep. Staff were... More

We loved this hotel. Charming, welcoming, comfortable and clean. We liked the fact that it was close enough to the city center, but on a quiet street. The staff could not have been more attentive or helpful. It is a special place, and fantastic value for the money. Cannot recommend more highly.

I cannot recall another hotel where the staff were so friendly and helpful. It took me 20 minutes to walk from the hotel to the main sdquare and the Duomo. It was my first visit to Florence and the staff were a mine of information on everything I needed to know If like me you wish to visit the opera... More

Solo Australian traveller - I stayed in a single room with a single bed, but room was spacious, and bathroom and bedroom very clean. Breakfast was nice. Marco, his wife and his brother are wonderful hosts, and so welcoming and could not do enough to help all their guests, nothing was a bother. As they are the owners, I guess... More

4 women travelling together in a quad room - tight but comfortable. We all liked the continental breakfast very much and found we could walk anywhere in Florence from here, but being a few blocks out of the main tourist area the street is relatively quiet. Especially convenient for Accademia and Duomo. Staff was generous with time and gave excellent... More

We first discovered the Giglio 3 years ago and have returned on our recent trip to Florence. As I've stated elsewhere in my reviews, if you are the Hilton / Sheraton type of person then the small, quaint family bed and breakfast / pension is not your thing. If, like us, you prefer a slice of local life and the... More

Having searched around for places I booked this place as the price was reasonable and was near enough to everything. It is a bit of walk from the station so if you come in by train I advise getting the bus or a taxi. Was a bad trip getting to Florence due to a gas leak, but when I arrived... More

We have just had 8 nights in Hotel Giglio and whilst they may not have the most luxurious premises this is compensated for by so many other factors. The intial "welcome" is genuine and that's the atmosphere for the remainder of your stay. I don't think we have ever met more congenial, helpful and considerate hosts than Marco, Manuela and...

We ended up staying at the Giglio twice at the beginning and end of our Italy trip. The staff was extremely friendly, Marco and his wife and Roberto were so kind and friendly, treated us like family. The rooms were beautiful with tall ceilings and more than enough space to accommodate our family of 4. My daughter ending up getting... More
