We stayed on the third floor of this hotel in a double room with shared bathroom. It had a nice Italian charm to it and the price was excellent. It was very good value. the breakfast which is included was great. The staff were very warm and polite! It is an easy walk from the city centre and the train... More

I am not very picky traveler, minimal comfort is enough for me. And I do not usually trust bad reviews. But in case of this hotel I can say that I am surprised, why it even has 3,5 points. It should be 2 at maximum. Probably staff just writes fake 5-star reviews to top up hotel's rating. So in short:... More

The hotel was a surprise. Good rating and such a bad service. I would certainly not recommend anyone to stay in this hotel. I did not feel neither comfortable nor welcome. Right across the staircase there is another hotel, wich has at least 3 start, maybe it is better, but i doubt since the owner is probably the same person,... More

During my winter vacation with friends we have stayed in several hotels, but only with this hotel I was unsatisfied. We have spent 4 nights there and my issues are the following: 1. It was terribly cold. I slept in all my socks and in the pullover with a hood (because my head was freezing) under two blankets. 2. A... More

We stayed with my friends in the room 14, which is on the 3d floor. It was very very cold in the room, you can literally feel the wind going from the walls. We told it many times, but there was no reaction from the stuff. Also the man from Greece on the reception was smoking in our coridor all... More

We stayed 2 nights at the Hotel Bijou in December 2014. Our room was absolutely cleaned and spacious! It was so cozy and comfortable, the heating and bathroom are ok. The hotel is located in the heart of Florence. Walking distance to the central train station, so if you have lots of luggage this is the hotel for you. Since... More

I and 3 of my friends stayed in this hotel 4 nights in the end of December 2014. And I can state that I never had such a bad experience in my life so far. I noticed that management always replies to such reviews and accuses them as complete falsehood. So please, believe me, everything I state here is true,... More

We stayed in this hotel for 4 nights at the end of December, group of 4 people. In the beginning everything looked reasonable for the low price we paid - shower and the toilet on the corridor, no kitchen, 4 beds (2 of which were rollaway beds. Very uncomfortable, but no complaints for that price). The room had 2 windows... More

This hotel is ok in terms of its location, rooms and atmosphere. It is really very near the central train station and right in corner of Santa Maria Novella church. We arrived very early and put our luggage in a sitting room. Meanwhile, we spent a very good time in the rooftop terrace: don't miss it! You'll enjoy an amazing... More
