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

The location is just perfect, close to all attractions and great restaurants. The rooms were spotless, all brand new, tastefylly updated in contemporary style. We really liked their breakfast, all fresh and very healthy foods. The terace on top of the hotel has absolutely stunning views over the city. It is located on the third floor, no elevaror, so it...

Florence is mighty expensive at any time of the year and even in early spring the Cardinal was far from cheap. The claim is a panoramic view and our room did have a nice aspect on to the Duomo roof. The room was very standard in terms of amenities, but the obliging staff did swap the duvet for blankets. (Is... More

The hotel is in an ideal location, right in the heart of the city centre, so you can walk to all the sights within 30 mins tops. The staff were friendly and helpful. A few problems: 1. It is on the 4th floor and there is no elevator - so it's a good work out carrying a suitcase up to... More

We've stayed there for 3 days in July 2010. Great place if you are on a budget, right in the middle of the old city, just steps to all important attractions. Great open air restaurant right around the corner as well as good groceries and vine cellars. The step to the hotel floor are narrow and many, I agree, but... More
