As soon as we walked into the lobby our heats sank. The place is filthy, it's basically a dump. Our room was awful! I broke out in some sort of rash from the bed (it wasn't bed bugs), we found a pair of OLD MOLDY socks in the nightstand, and the bathroom...oh man! We didn't shower our entire stay there... More

Stayed there for two nights. The first inconvenient we encountered was the check in. I find it unbelieable that in such a visited city as Florence, check in time in a hotel is only for a couple of hours until 7pm. If you contact them to check in at a later time, they dont know what to do. I have... More

I must admit that I let my boyfriend to book the hotel this time and when we arrived it was a nice surprise. The room was very cheap what was definitely convenient. I didn’t read any reviews, especially here, and this was my big mistake. It’s all true what people write here. Bathroom is small, toilet shared with shower, but... More

We booked this Hotel for a 4-night stay online. Since the Piccolo advertises having a special agreement with a parking garage and we rented a car, this was one of our decision taking points to choose this hotel. After an exhausting search for the hotel, which is located in a small street, accessable for pedestrians or residential cars, we finally... More

First, there is no elevator. So if you have luggage, be prepared to drag it up two flights of stairs to get to the reception desk. When we arrived, they had lost our reservation. The clerk told us that basically, it was too bad and we couldn't stay there, they were going to move us to a hotel on the... More

We read the bad reviews on Trip Advisor but booked anyway because it was in our price range. When you arrive there are "add on" costs for more things. These costs were only allowed to be paid in cash.These people are shady. We asked multiple times for a receipt and the guy wouldn't give us one. He also tried to... More

We had an awful experience at this hotel! It all started with a very rude and poor service provided at the reception, you have to pay for air conditioning, rooms were not clean at all and the internet doesnt work well! Avoid it if you still can! Definitely dont recommend!

We visited this hotel Sept of 2011 for 3 days. We enjoyed our stay very much. The weather was very hot and the air conditioning was a wonderful treat. The room was spacious and the bed was comfortable and firm. The bath and room were spotless. It is located within walking distance to all sights. The front desk staff were... More

My sister and I stayed her last summer. I'm surprised at the recent negative reviews of the place. When we stayed there, they staff was very friendly and extremely helpful. The room was clean and comfortable. We only ate breakfast there, but it was just fine. If you expect the Hilton, then stay at the Hilton. I loved this place!... More

We had booked this hotel as part of a package for my daughter. She goes to school in England and recently landed the role of "Clara" in "The Light in the Piazza." We thought it would be a great way to take a short break from school and do a little atmosphere research since the play is based in Florence,... More
