This place was nice and charming. My main concern is that there are too many stairs if you are faint of heart or have too much luggage. The location is in the heart of the city, the rooms are nice and have themes by artists. The shower head mount broke the morning we were using it, and by the time... More

What a great find! This is a small hotel located very close to the Duomo. As others have mentioned one has to climb a few steps to reach the hotel, but it is well worth it. The rooms are lovely, lots of gilding! The room and bathroom were very clean. We stayed in the Leonardo room and had our own... More

We stayed here based on a recommendation on Reid's Italy and were quite happy with it. We were in the Rafael room which was small but perfectly acceptable compared to most European hotels, and importantly has its own bathroom which not all rooms do. The location was great, if I poked my head out the window I could see the... More

This hotel has an excellent location to discover the highlights of Florence. The owner and his staff are very friendly and helpful! The rooms are cleaned every day. The room "Michelangelo" is the most beautiful, then "Botticelli" and "Raffaello". I return every year!

Room: The room was big and beautiful! There was free wifi as well. The only downside is they don't clean the room efficiently nor change the towels! Also, there were only 2 towels available for 3 guests. There were also mosquitoes around. There's a fan and a/c as well but it gets cold during the night. Location: very close to... More

I have really had a very good experience in hotel abaco, its rooms well furnished and the staff very helpful and the service , the breakfast was simple but the fact that it is included in the price was very convenient, the clients are allowed to use the breakfast room to eat there, I stayed there one week and it...

Initial impressions were ok: didn't expect much and was rather pleasantly surprised. 50 euro per night for a double room small and a bit kitch but adequate. Things turned sour upon payment of the bill when the staff insisted that I pay for the previos night ( I had already paid upon arrival but was not issued a receipt). After... More

We read a recommendation in Rick Steve's guide book and took 2 rooms here Sept 2011. What a bummer, from the 4 flights up steep, winding stairs to the surly desk clerk our troubles began. Mosquitos and traffic noise filled the room and the fan did not work. Broken light in the shower. Toilet was way down the hall past... More
