I must admit that when I arrived and was put in room no. 30, I kind of regretted my choice. It was the Pitti Uomo week and hotels closer to the city center were all full. So this looked like the best option. Anyway, I spent three nights, with the third night in a double room (no. 9 on G/F).... More

We stayed at Il Granduca as a couple for a week in May 2014 and had some mixed feelings about the stay. It appeared to be far from the city Centre (Florence Cathederal - Duomo) but was only a 15 minute walk in the end (about 1.35km). The room was nice and clean and the buffet breakfasts were particularly pleasant.... More

My name is Heidi and I came to Florence with a group of students in April 2014. We have done a lot of excursions with our students and stayed in many different kind of hotels, for example in Rome. This was our first field trip to Florence and absolutely the best stay ever with the students. The rooms we had... More

Ok so let me begin by saying this is the worst hotel I have stayed at in my life. Yes even my backpacking experience has been better. It ruined my trip to Florence as we had already booked and paid for it on hotels.com. It was a small cramped room in a super scary hallway and the old man at... More

My name is Petru Enache . I was at this hotel in October 2013. Their offer was a 10% discount for a stay greater than or equal to three nights. When I requested to apply this discount, I was told that it is generated from the online system. I checked the price of the room for a day and two... More

My friend and I stayed here for two nights after a long journey. We were very friendly welcomed by the manager. We arrived early but he looked after us very we'll, gave us coffee and guided us to the nice inner garden to relax. It is a nice place to stay just on the edge of beautiful Florence. We walked...

This hotel is falling apart from the outside in ! I appreciate antique and quality furniture but the fittings and fixtures in this place are verging on the dangerous as they are so old. The room was freezing at night, and i got bitten to the extreme by mosquitos whilst trying to keep warm in bed. I daren`t have used... More

If you are taller than 6 foot and your weight is according to your size, you should re-direct your choice of hotel for another one than the Hotel II Granduca, because... you will not fit in the shower, plain and simple. Hotel II Granduca is a very nice local hotel, full of historical furniture and spirits that go with it.... More

I have stayed at hotel Il Granduca twice, first in July 2012 and again in July 2013, both times in a single room. The hotel is located an easy 15-minute walk from the main tourist attractions of Florence (Duomo, Piazza della Signoria, etc.), in a pleasant, non-touristy neighborhood. There are also buses nearby. The best part of the hotel is... More
