We stayed for one night and had a good view of the cathedral from our window. The breakfast was adequate and the room was clean. Wifi was available if you were prepared to pay, we were not. We stayed in three hotels on our four night stay and this was the worse

I would like to post a good evaluation, nevertheless since the lady at the reception was not willing to change our room and give us a small room next to the elevator - which created noise and disturbance through the nights we stayed - it is for me not possible to say anything positive - other than the location. Breakfast... More

Worst hotel ever stayed at. Still talking about it a year later. The owners are scammers, liars and cheaters. Booked view room online and they tried to put us in a dirty secondary building further away in an office block no where near where we originally booked. When we complained they moved us to a room with no window and... More

Beginning on a positive note, this hotel is in a great location with excellent views of the Duomo and walking distance from the train station. Unfortunately, the rest of this review is going to be more negative, albeit honest. We stayed at the Hotel Bigallo for 5 nights while traveling Italy in Dec/Jan. The breakfast was pretty disappointing without any... More

The Hotel Bigallo is in the center of Florence. We asked for a room with a view and definitely got it. The large beautiful wood windows opened to the square in front of the Duomo and its gorgeous exterior. The stairs to the room are a hike every day, but you get used to it and are greeted by the...

Sure, this little hotel is located on the corner of the Piazza del Duomo with amazing views of the Duomo and within walking distance of most of what you want to see in Florence but it's also very comfortable, with clean and large rooms. The smallish elevator may be a challenge if arriving or departing with large bags but it... More

The Duomo is almost right across the street and there is a great view of it from the lobby. Our room did not have a view, but was very pleasant. This hotel is pretty much local to anywhere in central Florence so we did not need a car for anything. The staff were helpful and pleasant and the breakfasts were... More

The morning of my trip, I got an email from Hotel Bigallo telling me there had been a storm and my room was no longer available. But not to worry, they'd just walk me over to one of their sister hotels. Of course, I was not happy and thought this was a bit of a scam. However, I was more... More

Recommended by a Work Colleague... Perfect for the 6 of Us - 2 x Teenage Kids & the In-Laws. Some comments: Hotel Reception is on 3rd Floor - Accessible by stairs or a tiny lift - so take this into consideration. If you don't like (or struggle with) stairs, or have a lot of luggage, you'll not be able to... More

Very nice hotel right next to Duomo with very friendly staff and ample breakfast included. Close enough to everything with nice size room and bathroom. Some people complain of Duomo bells, every hour even at night, but our room had double pane windows and double shutters so it didn't bother us.
