Took this place after getting stranded in Florence due to a train strike. Nothing spectacular, but was safe, clean, and with friendly staff. Wouldn't make this a destination hotel, but easily met our need for a comfortable night's stay.

Hi stayed over 3 nights. The Director and his mother are horrible people. All they do is shout at you and to the staff members. The man has a total lack of self confidence, and looses his nerves 1 second afer you ask for something (switch on A/C, prepare the check, late check out). At one point i thought he... More

A handy little hotel 5 min walk to Santa Maria Novella station in Florence. Nice staff, pretty clean room. They only problem is the bus stop outside which can cause a lot of noise at night. If willing to get past that, it's a good value hotel.

Hotel Bijou is located in a desirable location in Florence, close to the train station and a few minutes walk to the Duomo. We stayed 4 nights and thought that it was an average experience. The air conditioning is controlled by the front desk. One recommendation is to not open the windows at night because of the noise and mosquitoes.... More

I travelled to Florence with a group of classmates and teachers. All 40 of us stayed in both the Hotel Bijou and their sister Hotel, Hotel Annabella. Both were very accomodating to our large party, and I highly recommend for anyone staying in large groups. The location was good -- everything was easily walkable, and the train station was only...

Two hotels in one, rude staff, wouldn't check me in at advertised time, shouting and inexplicable, repeated banging of doors which reverberates through my own room. 6th budget hotel in Italy I've stayed at, experienced traveller. Air conditioning is centrally controlled and switched off when they like. Dodgey place. Would recommend... You to avoid!

Spent the weekend here in an en suite room, with 4 beds, absolutely perfect, the staff are very nice and friendly! And only located a few mins walk from the train station and about 5 - 10 mins walk to the center. Can't not say anything bad about this place! Will be back to stay again!

If you have to budget, this place is a great find. Yes, you will have to share bathroom with another room but you have your own sink in your room. For under 100 per night, this is the go to bargain. Rooftop views are breath taking. Staff were more than accommodating. Note: wifi only available in lobby area.

Hotel Bijou is great value if you are prioritising location and character. It's actually quite charming, I don't know if we just got a particularly nice room but it had loads of space and a fantastic Juliet balcony. It's old fashioned which gives a sense of grandeur. I read reviews complaining about noise and stairs and bugs and nonsense. You're... More

Spent 6 days in this hotel. The staff is fine and english speaking. It is located conveniently close to train station and city center. Accept booking without having to provide credit cart information.
