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.

Hotel Bijou had excellent facilities, clean rooms, warm sheets and friendly staff. The hotel did not smell bad, and was warm as inviting.. I left an item behind and they mailed it back to me for free.

I really liked this hotel! It is centrally located and a very easy and short walk from the main train station. The hotel is located behind McDonald and next to a Chinese Restaurant, but the area is safe. Room was cozy and a little old fashioned, but it had good WIFI, A/C and delicious breakfast. The location was very quiet... More

This hotel is really nice: the people working there are very friendly, we spent a good time at Hotel Bijou. The location is excellent, just walk around the corner to the train station! Short distance from the Duomo: we could see it from the roof terrace. Thanks to everybody for the great service!

We selected Hotel Bijou based on Tripadvisor reviews and definitely we were not disappointed! It's a great cheap hotel just a short walk from the central train station and yet very cozy. We stayed in a large room away from the street, so there was no noise at all. Beds were very comfortable and the private bathroom was very clean... More
