Just spent the night there and was thrilled with the location and the service. I had a ton of questions before I arrived re: directions, accommodations, hairdryer in room, etc...and each email was answered promptly and with such courtesy ..especially by Egli..the manager. It is on a tiny street away from the noise and tourists, but near the main streets... More

My boyfriend and I spent a weekend in Florence this month and stayed at hotel Esperanza. We really enjoyed our stay there as the hotel had just been renovated. All the furniture were new, the rooms were cleaned daily and the staff was extremely helpful. They catered to all of our needs and gave us tips how to get around... More

If you have high standards go someplace else. For us... More

The hotel is close to piazza della repubblica, not too hard to find- down an alley, but close to the designer strip. The room was large and simple, small bathroom. Continental style breakfast, amazing cappuccinos. Lots of stairs in entrance of hotel. My experience was that the room was clean.

This hotel is cheap-ish, great location, and nice owner, but it is so dirty! The carpet was so so gross. We change hotels and fora better location and $15 more we have a great place around the corner.

I have stayed there just 8 days. I think location is great, rooms are clean and personnel helped me about everything. Breakfeast is simple but delicious. I can suggest this place everyone who wants to come Florence.

This very old, very small downtown Hotel is extremely hard to find. It is basically in an alley right next to Gucci row, so it is in an excellant location, right in the middle of things. But although it says parking garage, what it means is that you pay 28 Euro a night to park because it is not their... More

We just arrived here yesterday, and it is such a cute place! Rooms are simple, beds and bathroom are clean, carpet is not too clean and has cigarette holes throughout. The best things about this room is the windows with shutters (very Firenze), and the glass doors leading to a 3 meter squared patio, complete with table, chairs, and window... More

Hotel Esperanza, situated on the corner of Via dell'Inferno and Via del Purgatorio (romantic, eh?) deep in the heart of the old town is not easily accessible. Better don't try it by car (we did), not sure, if it's any better by taxi. Later on, however, all the sights are only a short walk away. The hotel is very modestly... More

When arriving in Florence on our honeymoon our original hotel (Hotel Medici) had electrical problems and redirected us to Hotel Esperanza. The man that greeted us was very nice, but I was not impressed with the hotel. It was down a creepy alleyway, and located above a mechanic and garage. It was very noisy in the morning. The carpet in... More
