I can't say enough about the politeness of the hotel staff. The hotel was very clean, cheap, cozy and quiet. The breakfast was very tasty with a good variety of cereals, croissants, pastries and cakes. The view from the rooftop terrace was spectacular: DON'T MISS IT! Staying there in the evening was very relaxing during a very hot June. Great... More

Good for the price. Clean, tidy, with friendly staff. Good location (2 mins from station and 10 mins from city centre). Overall excellent value for a simple room with air conditioning. We were given a double room with shared bathroom initially (which was lacking soap and bath mat) but upgraded for no extra cost on the second night to an... More

Here are the good bits…air conditioning excellent; room simple but clean; fantastic location – one street from main train station; it has an old but reliable lift. Here is the not-so-good stuff….service was minimal at best, surly at worst; bathrooms quickly became dirty, even after they were cleaned (no hand/floor towels, so any water on the floors quickly turned to...

I stayed there for 6 nights with my boyfriend. I can honestly say that I have never had such a relaxing, wonderful and unforgettable stay like this one! The hotel was really cozy and comfortable, so we extended our stay there (we had booked only two nights). The amazing staff, above all Mr. Christian, made me feel incredible welcome and... More

Stayed at Bijou for 8nights and the stay was beyond expectation. We were upgraded to the Junior suite on the top floor. The room was spacious, has a elegant interior decor and the highlight was the huge terrace outside our room. We could view the whole Forte dei Marmi area and the mountains. Needless to say the sunset and sunrise... More

This hotel was a good value. It was close to the train station (Santa Maria Novella) and only a fifteen minute walk to the Duomo. Unfortunately, there was no free breakfast. Also there were mosquitoes everywhere when we went in June. Our air conditioning barely worked. We expected a private bathroom, but had to share one. Not the end of... More

I've read many bad reviews about this place. Yes it's not amazing nor has it fantastic facilities but think about how much you pay for the room! The room was clean, the staff were friendly/helpful and the location was brilliant. Apart from our booking detailing a double bed and we got 2 single beds and it being quite loud in... More

We stayed there for 3 nights and we are very satisfied with the Hotel Bijou. The location is absolutely great, near the central train station and the top tourist attactions in Florence. Everything is at short distance from here. Our room was spacious and well maintained. Breakfast was very good and all the hotel staff from the front desk officers... More

The Bijou hotel is a nice small hotel, great for travellers on a budget. From the roof terrace you have a lovely view of the city, and the Ponte Vecchio and the old city centre is at an acceptable walking distance. The staff is accomodating and service-minded.
