Unpretentious and helpful staff in a modest but clean hotel in the heart of the city. Comfortable semi-modern room with a small balcony and a very big view! Lots of sites walkable from here and close to train station.

This has to be one of my most favourite hotels during my Italy trip. Owners/Managers is very helpful if you need any assistance as to where to go or how to get there. Breakfast is hot/cold mix and food is fresh and filling. Quiet area but close to walk to where you need to be - about 10min walk from... More

Morning staff was very helpful and accomodating, the hotel is small and intimate. The room was pretty. I was hoping for an extra blanket in the closet and the bed wasn't the most comfortable. Located in a more quiet part of town.

We stayed three nights here in September 2014 and throughly enjoyed our stay. The hosts are gracious and helpful. The breakfast includes both hot and cold items. You can even have the host make you a cappuccino! Our room was spacious with everything we needed. We had a view out into the courtyard which made it nice and quiet. We... More

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
