This is a small hotel about 10 minutes walk to the train station and the major tourist attractions. The Central Market was very close and many restaurants were within easy walking distance. Breakfast was good, the staff were very friendly and helpful, especially the lovely breakfast waitress, and the rooms were clean. However, our room and the beds (twins, despite... More

Hotel Caravaggio is a short bus ride from the train station. It is situated across the road from a park and within easy walking distance of everything you would want to see in Florence. Our triple room and bathroom were spacious by any standards, let alone Italy's. The room was air-conditioned and it was a wonderful cool retreat after a... More

We stayed at the Hotel Caravaggio and found it very good in terms of location and amenities. A few minutes walk to the major sites in Florence (Duomo, Uffizi, Ponte Vecchio, etc.) and close to the S.M Novella train station. Nice breakfast spread and beautiful outdoor patio with a couple of tables if you get their early. Ask for a... More

My wife and I, and another friend stayed here a few years ago. The staff was very friendly, and accommodating. The rooms were among the most comfortable that I experienced in all of Italy. Nice windows that opened to the park. The snacks at breakfast were nice too...and the location was fantastic. Our daughter was in school in Florence at... More

Stayed here in June 2014 for 4 nights. Stayed in room 213 on the first floor. Room was basic but was clean. There was air conditioning, tv, small fridge and in room safe. Room was cleaned every day and we found all the reception staff to be very helpful. Plenty of food on offer at breakfast; fresh fruit, pastries, cereal,... More

Do not stay here if you want to sleep. This hotel faces a piazza with a busy street in front and on a Saturday night African music all night long. Big mistake. I have been to Florence 3 times and this is the worst experience.

The decor may be more classical (some may say dated) then contemporary but this hotel gets the basics right. The room, especially the bathroom was immaculately clean and the elegant dinning room was perfect for a breakfast. The room was not huge but it was cool, perfect for a bit of respite from the searing Tuscan sun. Not quite in... More
