Travelled: September 2013 I LOVED staying here! I was super excited about our stay in Florence and Humberto did not disappoint one bit! We had a lovely balcony with the Duomo right on our doorstep. Being new to this travelling business, we were very nervous about approaching anyone for help but Humberto was incredibly welcoming and helpful. I am looking... More

Fantastic location, just a short and easy walk down from the train station. Especially when you arrive after dark. Staff member Umberto was so friendly and welcoming, always wishing us well when we were coming/going. The rooms open up to face the Duomo, couldn't ask for better! It was in the perfect location to head out sightseeing for the day... More

Hotel San Giovanni was our first stop in our Florence trip. I figured it would be easy to find from the train station and I was right. Staff member Umberto was helpful with all details and we slept like a rock. WiFi was accessible via the front gathering room. Bedroom was a large but bathroom a little bit scary. Great... More

Hotel San Giovanni is located steps from the stunning Duomo. It is also very close to the train station! I booked a private room with my boyfriend and our view looked right out to the Cathedral. Our room was huge: full bed, table with chairs, and a dresser. We also had a separate, private bathroom. We did not have air... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at this hotel in late July 2014 for two nights. We'd only booked a couple of months in advance and there were still quite a few options left to choose. We chose the Deluxe Double Room which had a breathtaking view of the Piazza and the Duomo, as well as a Private Bathroom. It had... More

My boyfriend and I stayed in this hotel for two nights in early June. Our room overlooked the Duomo and the central piazza from the second floor, and for the price charged, you could not do any better. The room was very large and comfortable with a couple of fresco's on the wall!! So centrally located, and would recommend to... More

Fantastic location, I couldn't believe when I opened the shutters that I was looking across at the duomo and baptistery. We had 800 year old fresco's on our ceiling and the room was furnished in lovely shabby chic style. My family of 4 were very comfortable in the room and the toilet and shower across the hall was always spotless... More

We really enjoyed our stay here. Our window overlooked the Duomo and for the price you physically cannot do better than this. The building felt old, but in a really authentic way and the furniture was very nice. The beds were very comfy, and the location was so convenient we were able to return throughout the day and nap before... More
