“Fantastic hotel and best breakfast!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

We stayed here for 4 nights in August. The lovely hospitality we experienced began from the moment Paolo sent us our confirmation email which included very helpful information about how to locate the hotel as well as some suggestions for places to visit. When we arrived on the day he greeted us warmly and our room was also ready well before time which we were thankful for.

We had a twin room which was very basic with great aircon, and it was quiet. The bathroom was very cramped and the shower only covered by a curtain so it was hard to not splash water everywhere. The drainage was also very slow, and the lack of ventilation made it very hot, but apart from that it was sufficient for our needs (and at 90 euros a night, it was amazing value).

The best part about the hotel was not only its location (we walked everywhere!! Duomo, Uffizi etc) but also the amazing breakfast. I've never seen such a great spread. Everything was so fresh! From cold cuts, cheeses, home made cakes, hard boiled eggs, fruit, yoghurts, different varieties of bread, fresh tomatoes (and great gluten free options as well). Our tea/coffee orders were remembered daily and it felt very homely in the large dining room.

If you're after something fancy, dont bother, but if you want excellent service, a great location and staff that make you feel very welcome then don't look anywhere else.

We had a lovely stay at this hotel for 2 nights just after Christmas 2012. It was very convenient to the Duomo and an easy walk from the train station. The staff at the hotel were all very friendly and informative, and the free wifi was very useful. The breakfast was a real treat – we had a huge range of food to eat and the 2 staff cleared the tables, refreshed the food and prepared the hot drinks in a relaxed and comfortable manner.
Our room was basic but clean, the beds were comfortable and the shower was warm.
The panetone in the room was a nice welcome and the calendar gift on departure was a lovely way to end our Florence visit.

On a recent vacation in Italy, my wife and I stayed at Hotel Casci while in Florence. We selected it after reading positive reviews on tripadvisor.com, as well as comparing the price to other options. The staff was very friendly and helpful, greeting us as we came and went, as well as suggesting side trips to our itinerary to see more of Italy. Breakfast was included each morning, containing a selection of fruits, pastries, etc. The room was sufficient in size, and everything was very clean. The location was great: just a few minutes walk to the Duomo, Accademia (David statue), and within walking distance to the other major attractions in Florence as well. As tourists, it was very helpful that the staff spoke English. The staff pointed us a nearby garage, in which we were able to store our car (for a fee). Overall Hotel Casci was a great value for a very convenient location, and we enjoyed our stay.

Excellent location, friendly, helpful staff, extremely clean. This was one of the nicest places I have stayed, it is small, simple but has everything you need for a holiday. If you are looking for a luxury hotel this is not the place for you. If you are looking for excellent value for money, a place that is central, friendly, comfortable then Hotel Casci lives up to that and more. Thoroughly enjoyed our three nights there, could not recommend it more highly

I picked this hotel for a stay with my parents in August 2012, based on the great reviews on Tripadvisor and it really lived upto the expectations and more :) The room was comfortable although rather small (but this is Florence!!) and the staff was polite and helpful at all times. The breakfast buffet was fantastic. Lots of fruits, bread, cakes, juices, cereals etc etc etc probably the most generous spread that we ever had in an Italian hotel. The location is also very good..very close to the Academia Gallery as well as within an easy distance to the Uffizi and the Duomo....:) Would definitely stay here again:)

This was my third stay at the fantastic Hotel Casci. I was travelling with my teenage son and we had a great five night stay. It was so damn hot in Italy in June-July but this lovely small family run hotel was a welcome reprieve from the heat. The room, as always, was incredibly clean, heaps big enough for the two of us, and had everything we needed. The hotel is in a great location and we spent five fantastic days walking the streets of Florence. Our hosts were just so welcoming. The value is fantastic and they can't do enough for you. Thanks so much for another great stay!
