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!

We are very sorry to inform you and, above all, all the people your review is totally false: there are not two hotels in one, the Hotel Bijou is one and only one, you confused it with another hotel. Our staff is absolutely not rude and you, as anyone, could check in at advertised time. So, in your opinion our... More

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.

We have just returned from four nights in its sister hotel ( Annabella ) which was just across the corridor , both hotels excellent location for station and major sights all within 10-15 mins walking. Near the doorway to Hotel Bijou is the number 1 bus stop that takes you to Lucca , well worth a visit.

We think we said it all in the title: but really, more than we expected. Don't judge by its 2 star category.... this place easily wins over some of the so called 3 star properties we've visited! Our room was very cozy and spacious, equipped with balcony too! And the staff at the reception were absolutely polite. The rooftop terrace... More

The hotel owner is very polite. Also the room is clean and cozy. We have just stayed here to celebrate our 19th anniversary & it was in the perfect location. It is located in the center of everything. It is just 3 minutes walk to the the train station, close to the duomo, uffizi gallery, ponte vecchio and all the... More
