I only stayed at this hotel for three nights while exploring Florence and found it great value for money, the rooms are quite spacious, as is the bathroom. There is also free Wi-Fi which worked really well and we were on the second floor. Breakfast was good, there seemed a good variety and selection. The blood orange juice was especially... More

I was well impressed with this hotel. The location is fairly good, away from the busy town center but walking distance to everything. WiFi coverage one of the best I have ever experienced in a hotel. I would definitely stay here again. Breakfast did not offer a lot of choice, would be so much better if there is a bigger... More

Me and my friend got a deal with expedia which was this hotel with a flight included with Ryanair. The hotel was fantastic for what we paid. The breakfast buffet each morning was always filled with food (delicious orange juice, might I add). The cleaner comes in every morning to clean and tidy which was a nice touch. The people... More

True to it's history of a Convent, the place offers basic accommodation. I would have thought that for the price we paid, it would be a bit nicer .... but I guess it was part of the Summer pricing madness. The hotel is quite a bit away from the city centre. So, if you are arriving late to the train... More

This hotel is a long walk up hill from the center of Florence. The room was furnished in old basic style. The bath was one of those with the drain in the middle of the bathroom floor, so the whole floor gets wet when you take a shower. But it did have a heated towel rack! The front desk staff... More

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
