I feel like people who work at this hotel are getting on here and writing fake reviews to counteract the poor ones, based on my experience the ones that claim it's excellent are pure fabrications, apart from the location there was nothing enjoyable about my experience in this hotel. Instead of writing fake reviews they'd be better off updating their... More

My girlfriend and I recently stayed at the Hotel La Gioconda in Florence. This was the worst hotel experience I have ever had in Italy. Firstly, the room was filthy - bathroom unclean, with a used bar of soap in the shower and hairs all over the shower floor. The toilet was not clean either, with toilet paper in the... More

Not a good hotel in my opinion. Wifi and television don't even work on last floor; and breakfast is poor, not even some fruit or cakes or eggs or ham. windows are not soundproofed, so at 6 am you start hearing any kind of noise from the street. Was not possible to sleep.

While the hotel is close to the Domo which is nice, the overall hotel is awful! The rooms smell and are not at all clean. The furniture is uncomfortable and the carpets are disgusting. While occupancy was minimal, the front desk clerk still felt inclined to give us the two rooms on the top floor and require us to hike... More

We booked this room with the intention of being close to the Duomo, and it was. Only about a five minute walk from the train station and then another five minutes to the Duomo, the location was great. That is where greatness ended and average stepped in. The staff was friendly upon our arrival but then we had to walk... More

We were a little worried after reading all the reviews but were quite surprised as it was nothing like what we had read about! The only downfall was there was no elevator so our legs had a bit of a work out. The staff carried my bags up for me which was really helpful. The room was really large, clean... More

It is also rated a 3 star hotel. We do not understand how could get this rating..It will just be a 1... More

it was a nice stay, the room was clean and they keep that way, chaging the towels everyday. I liked the breakfast too, continental type with lots of croissantes, yogurts and coffe. Excellent location, near Dome. Sleep was good but maybe we were tired from all he sightseeing. Very polite and helpful staff, answering all our questions. I definitely recommended... More
