Been in Florence on a trip for 2 days. The hotel is in the center of Florence 100 m behind the Duomo. Every attraction can be reached in 10 min light walk. Great location good breakfast and clean room. The nly problem could be the stairs. There is no lift. All in all great small hotel.

Newly refurbished hotel in the heart of Florence. The rooms are carpet free and bed linens are brand new. The bathroon cleaness could be improved.There is a nice rooftop where you can take your drink and soak up the atmosphere. The hotel is located in the third floor and no lifts. So be ready to carry your baggage. The staff... More

Nice stay in this hotel, which is located on the top floor of a building in central Florence - great location for sightseeing - e.g. Duomo is a couple of minutes walk. Very friendly staff - one of them even offered us to help carry our bags down all the flights of stairs. Try to get the room with the... More

We spent two nights here in June as part of a mini tour of Tuscany and really enjoyed our stay. Initially I was put off by the three floors of stairs to climb, but it was worth the exercise! We were welcomed on arrival with a refreshing drink, a map of the centre and some recommendations. The room (and the... More

We are very picky about hotels, and the Cardinal Hotel exceeded our expectations. The hotel was totally renovated in February 2014 - we loved the clean modern feel, and the staff and breakfast service were excellent. Best of all the hotel is just steps from the Duomo and great restaurants and cafes.

At the top of the building (don't be afraid to go up the three floors - it's worth it) you'll find this charming little hotel. Quite modern, clean rooms and top location in the middle of Florence. Friendly staff with good tips (try their pizza recommendation, Il ghibellini, just around the corner). A must is their terrace. Ask for their... More

We stayed there for one night on our way out of the country. The folks are very nice. We were offered coffee right when we checked in, and told about the hotel and given tips about what to do nearby. The room was very clean and modern-feeling. Not huge, but definitely not cramped at all. Bathroom was great. Great shower.... More
