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

I spent only 2 days in Florence, but Hotel Bijou is a nice, cozy, well located and VERY CHEAP hotel. If you want to save money, this is the hotel for you! Wifi and heating were ok, my bed was very confortable. For a single room I paid only $25! The location is excellent: I had to catch a 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

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
