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.

We stayed in a triple room at the Hotel Giglio, and I believe it must be one of the small rooms referred to by other reviewers. It did feel a little claustrophobic. However, that is my only complaint. The owners of the hotel couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. We found the breakfasts to be really outstanding, especially the... More

Enjoyed our time in Firenze up until an unfortunate accident broke my wife's ankle. Marco at Hotel Giglio was wonderful and helped us get through this setback with crutches and lots of help. Friendly, clean and nicely located. Would gladly stay here again

Returning to this hotel for the 20 th time today. Wonderfully stylish rooms. Excellent friendly staff. Real home from home. Quiet street. Near to st Marco. Convenient for good restaurants near market area. Easy to walk to centre and all attractions.

This hotel was everything I had hoped to find in Florence, and more! This hotel is so charming and really added so much to our wonderful experience in Florence. The owners are friendly and so helpful. They are very knowledgeable and provided useful advice for things to do in Florence like restaurants to go to, special events going on, and... More

My family and I stayed here for two nights and it was great. The room was spacious (especially for Italy's standards), the breakfast was great, and most of all, the staff were awesome. Everyone was very helpful and friendly, and really made our stay a pleasant one. The hotel is nicely situated, only about a 10 minute walk from the... More

First of all, we came from Rome and Capri after wonderful experience in all hotels/B&Bs along our way so this review might be biased. We arrived around 9pm and were the second last to check in. We were given room 4, which is incredibly cramped, dated, badly insulated and dirty (take a second look at where they hang your towels... More

Arrived to Florence by train. Took a 10 min taxi ride to the hotel. Expect to pay between 8-12 euro depending on traffic. The hotel is located on the second floor. They have a tiny elevator, but if you have light luggages, I suggest you walk up the stairs. Marco and his wife welcomed us as soon as we arrived.... More

I only stayed one night but from my experience, it was wonderful. The staff are very friendly and treat you like their only guest. Breakfast was standard fare for European breakfast buffets, but fresh and tasty. My room was large and spacious and very clean. The hotel is a 10 minute walk to the Duomo and very convenient to restaurants... More

We arrived at this hotel having travelled from Rome, and after our experiences there, we weren't expecting very much. However, we were very pleasantly surprised! This hotel is a real gem with nicely decorated, traditional rooms and very helpful staff.
