This is a horrible hotel. My husband's conference booked us at this hotel. Trust me it is not even close to three stars as listed. How do I start to list how terrible this place is? The hallways are dark and the rooms have very little light. They are more like cells than rooms. There is no ac this time... More

Spent three nights here with my partner and we couldn't really fault it. Staff were very friendly and the rooms (if a little basic) were clean. Breakfast was good with all the stuff you need to fuel up for the day (cereals, croissants, yoghurt, cold meats, tea/coffee etc.). The hotel itself is about a 10 minute walk to the city... More

Hotel Convitti della Calza is a former monastery & it showed from the minute you arrive at reception. Reception was warm & welcoming, though had very limited english. The first thing that you noticed was the width & size of the corridors they were huge. The room was very spatan with extremely basic furniture just as the monks would have... More

This hotel used to be a monastery and it has a lovely internal garden with cloisters all around. The rooms were very clean, although basic, and the beds were comfortable. It is in a nice area about 15 minutes walk to the Ponte Vecchio. The breakfast was good with fresh croissants, youghurt, fruit, etc and excellent coffee! The only downside... More

It is a lovely place with a wonderful court yard. The rooms are spartan, but adequate and the whole place is clean. Corridors are very long and tiled, so anyone talking will echo down and could be an issue for light sleepers. Staff are lovely. Breakfast is ok, although we had a few times quite stale croissants/bread. But, and this... More

If you are expecting a four star hotel, it should be up to you to investigate. The accommodations are a half hour walk from the Duomo, 15 minute walk to the Ponte Vecchio, Pitti Palace, etc. Excellent location for exploring. Lovely hotel transformed from a previous monastery complete with painted murals in the courtyard and throughout hotel. Rooms are basic,... More

The travel agent said this hotel was something to see.... we are still waiting. On a family trip from Oz we were booked here for five nights, on a four star budget. I dont know how the agent got 4 star accom and Cinvitto DC mixed up. The CDC is a conference centre and student accom hotel/hostel. 1 star student... More

Unfortunately the travel agent booked erroneuosly the Convitto as a 4 stars hotel , which CDC is not, being a Holiday House- congress center, with all services compared to a 3 stars hotel. Convitto della Calza is everywhere advertised this way. We do accomodate not only groups , but also individuals and the very large 400 s.m. open-air-spaces (courtyard) ,... More
