The hotel is brilliantly situated to visit Florence on foot so 5 star on that front. 5 stars too for the welcoming, friendly and ultra helpful staff. 2 stars for the room itself that is in need of renovating - high ceiling and decent sized bathroom would provide for a great makeover including new bathroom, bed/furniture and furnishings - shampoo/bathroom...

Hotel Giglio is a great option when choosing a hotel in Florence. You're a close walk to the Duomo and all the main sights, along with several nearby piazzas and parks, but the neighborhood is quiet and not nearly as crawling with tourists as everywhere else in Florence. The entire staff was so incredibly friendly and helpful with everything from... More

We love this place. The service was excellent, rooms were very clean, and so close to everything. When we arrived, they provided us with refreshing juices and croissants. Breakfast is included, and they have Italian coffee or American. Highly recommend!

Location was ideal within walking distance to most sites. The hotel has nice character, rooms are high quality and a nice breakfast. The staff are very friendly and always helpful. We would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to visiting Florence.

Inside of a historic building, this small family run hotel was a hidden treasure! We had a quad/family room for 2 adults and 2 teens and it was perfect! Marco and his family are unbelievably accommodating and knowledgable about their city. He recommended fantastic authentic restaurants and gave us great site seeing tips! The breakfast in the morning was very... More

Hotel Giglio is an oasis for 21 hours of every day. Situated 5 minutes from San Marco square and 15/20 from the Duomo, Uffizi and Ponte Vecchio it is ideally located. Upon entering the hotel you are aware that it is all set out on one floor. The staff are knowledgable and welcoming and even provided us with a welcome... More

It is a hotel located on the first floor of the building (as is the case in many hotels in Firenze or Roma), but it doesn't make it less comfortable at all. Rooms are big and ceilings are hiiigh! The bed was ok, not super comfortable, but nor uncomfortable. Breakfast had plenty of things, like sweets and yogourths, but was... More

When we first arrived we got a little scared by the front of the hotel, the elevator and stairs. But as soon as we were hosted we knew we have made a good choice! They were really welcoming and gave us full explanation about Florence, restaurants and GREAT tips about the local shopping and habits. The breakfast was also something!... More

This Hotel is just a short walk to the Duomo and heart of the city. The owners are so nice and work hard to make sure their guest are happy. The owner even drove us to the train station so we didn't have to get a taxi. The breakfast is divine and great way to start each day...all included and... More

Just back from a four day stay at the Hotel Giglio in Florence.My wife and I loved it.Super friendly owners.So helpful.Great location too.Just a short stroll into the centre of the city.Loved the breakfasts.Forget the cold,formal 4 and 5 star hotels the Giglio is the place to help make your visit to Firenze really memorable.
