Hotel Cavalcanti is very well placed in the centre of Florence, in a quiet location but within easy reach of the Duomo and other sites of cultural interest. There are also many restaurants within easy reach. This is more like a private apartment than a traditional hotel with excellent facilities including a delightful kitchen /diner where guests are able to... More

We stayed 4 days in Florence and our accommodation was lovely. The location was perfect right in the heart of the city. The owners were very hospitable. We would certainly recommend this to anyone staying in Florence.

We stayed at this beautiful B&B for 4 nights earlier this month. The lovely Eiko, a Japanese language student, welcomed us and showed us around the facilities. She gave us a map with several eateries, points of interest and supermarkets highlighted in different colours, to help us orient ourselves in the maze of streets of Florence. The "Room of Plenty"...

We had a room with a view in Florence, by the old leather market. Room was clean, and comfortably furnished. This is not a hotel as such and it was nice to be able to use the kitchen to make a drink and there was fruit and pastries available. No breakfast as such. If you are a light sleeper you... More

Of all the B&B-type accommodations we found in Italy, this was the nicest room. GREAT bathroom. Very friendly staff, an incredibly walkable location, and a 24-hour kitchen filled with goodies for the weary traveller.

This hotel is in a few floors of a apartment building and doesn't have a staff around the clock. We checked in the afternoon of 10/7/2014 and immediately out the next morning. When first arriving you'll need to ring the bell on the side of a building to gain access via a door right next to an Irish Pub. Then... More

I stayed in the hotel for a week in September 2014. The rooms were clean and spacious with newly renovated bathrooms. The staff was friendly and accommodating. Location is very central. Breakfast/snack room is a nice idea, especially as one can fix oneself a cup of tea any time during the day. If I were to nitpick the only thing... More

Relais Cavalcanti is a true gem. It is located in the very center of Florence, just 5 min away from Piazza della Signoria, near Palazzo della Parte Guelfa. All attractions of the city, including Oltrarno, are easily accessible by foot. The place occupies two upper floors of a historic building, and has all the charms of a stay with a... More

This hotel made our trip in Florence. If you are looking for a quaint, clean, comfortable B&B style hotel you must stay here! The location was perfect-right in the center of town, the rooms were clean and cute, and the staff was so helpful! I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone!
