The hotel is very misleading on the website with all of their added features. There was no safe in the room which I was disappointed about as a female solo traveler. There was a lot of noise outside. The breakfast was not great. I was not impressed really at all. They did give a great restaurant recommendation for down the... More

After several months of research to find the perfect hotel to end our 2 1/2 week anniversary European vacation to say we were disappointed, shocked, and frustrated to learn our reservation had been cancelled when we arrived with our confirmation email in hand would be an understatement! Due to a suspicion of fraud, our credit card company denied the charge... More

We stayed 4 nights at this great little hotel. Yes it's on the 3rd floor (66 and a half steps and no lift) but it's an old building and the staff will bring your bags up for you. The staff are superb (English speaking) and very helpful whether you need something arranging or advice or recommendations for restaurants etc. The... More

We stayed for three nights during our honeymoon. Florence is a very beautiful city and hotel cardinal is a very clean and friendly place in the center of the city. The front desk was very helpful with sightseeing and food suggestions. They also helped with reservations to museums via phone. We certainly recommend this hotel to everyone and will stay... More

My wife and I stayed for a week in April, 2015. This hotel is located minutes from the Duomo and Santa Croce, great restaurants, and some of the best gelato in Italy. Incredible service by Filippo, Arturo, Andrea, and Rodolfo. They were all friendly, knowledgable and very accomodating. Free breakfast was perfect for us with a nice selection of meats,... More

There is nothing we can complain about this hotel...it provided us with a perfect stay. Firstly the location, very close to the Duomo (with a gorgeous view from the patio up on the roof) but the location didn't really matter as in Florence everything was within a twenty minute walk. The hotel is on the third floor, however not a... More
