“Five stars”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

Amazing hotel with a great location just a block from the train station and overlooking a large peaceful church square. The breakfast buffet on the fourth floor is quite extensive and the views are amazing. Hotel is very clean and ritzy. Employees were friendly and attentive. You won't be disappointed with this little gem!

Room Tip: Had a room overlooking the streets but the windows are well insulated and somewhat soundproof so we...

This is a top notch hotel in a great location in Florence. Everything including the Duomo is withing walking distance and there are plenty of restaurants and shopping nearby. It's also walking distance to the train station. It's situated in a quiet but big piazza. The rooms are fairly big and very comfortable and clean. Nice beds and bedding. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful. They can book museum tickets for you. I would definitely recommend this hotel. It's the perfect place to stay in Florence.

Only stayed one night but were very impressed. The staff is so very welcoming and helpful. They are always ready with GREAT advice about a good restaurant for dinner or where to buy bath salts to enjoy the FABULOUS tub in our bathroom! The beds are comfy and the bathrooms are spacious. The internet is fast & the breakfast buffet is GREAT!

This was my first trip to Florence and I loved L'Orologio. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. The location is ideal. 5 min walk from train station, just on the Piazza Santa Maria Novella. 3 min walk to the Duomo and San Lorenzo. 10 min walk to the Uffizi and 8-10 min from Academmia. Just wonderful

The hotel is in a great location at Piazza Santa Maria Novella. It was a bit hard to find, with its subtle signage, but once we did, boy what a classy place. The "clock" theme (from it's name) appears around the hotel and the rooms. The design is stylish and distinct. Our junior suite was amazingly spacious, with our 8 year old having another large room all to himself. The lighting in the room was a bit dark - I liked the mood, but it may not be to everyone's taste. We even had a an attached terrace with a great view (see the pic). From the hotel, most of the attractions are an easy walk away. Even the train station is only 5 minutes away. Breakfast features ample choice and quality of food. L'orologio oozes with all the charm of Florence itself. We stayed 2 nights and now wish we had stayed a few more.

I was spending one night in Florence before heading on to Siena. Hotel L'Orologio was a perfect way to spend that evening and it's charm, excellent service and well appointed room made me want to go back and spend more time. It is very well located on Piazza Santa Maria Novella...5 minutes to the train station and an easy walk to restaurants, shopping and some of the best sightseeing in Florence. Breakfast was delicious. I hope to stay in the Hotel L'Orologio again.

We stayed four nights in standard room which was beautifully decorated with large bathroom with shower. All modern appliances complete the feeling of luxury. Breakfast on the fourth floor affords wide selection in continental breakfast with great views over the Piazza. Furnishings in public areas are of the highest quality of design reflecting the theme of clocks throughout the hotel. Welcoming bar for pre-dinner drinks and at reasonable price .We would praise the reception staff who responded promptly and helpfully to pre-arrival email requests and were a font of excellent advice as regards Florence ,it's museums, churches and other sites . Piazza Santa Maria is only 5 minutes walk from the Duomo and indeed all of historical Florence is only a short walk away .One of the very finest hotels we have visited in Europe
