This comfortable, friendly hotel is superbly located near the Duomo, in comfortable walking distance of most of Florence’s chief attractions. We first stayed at the Casci in 1999 and liked it so much that we stayed there again in September 2012. To our delight, the rooms had all been upgraded, with new TVs, air conditioning and free, reliable WiFi. The modernized bathroom with tub and shower was a welcome feature, and the queen-sized bed very comfortable.
The best aspects of the Casci, however, remain the same: the location, surely, but also the friendly, welcoming, marvelously helpful proprietors. Paolo and his mother Carla go all out for their guests, providing a delicious free breakfast in the lovely frescoed dining room and offering generous, cheerful advice on travel plans, restaurants, and any other needs you may have. The hotel is well maintained, spotlessly clean. Laundry service is available. The Casci is an outstanding value. When we return to Florence we will certainly stay there again.
