“A great place to stay, mainly due to the owners, who make guests feel like family”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013 via mobile

I booked this hotel based on the great reviews in my guidebooks and here on TripAdvisor. It looked farther from the centre of town on my map than it really is - it only took about 4 minutes to walk from the Duomo. It was impeccably clean and surprisingly modern, considering the age of the building itself. I got a very warm welcome from the owners, who speak perfect English. My room was waiting for me with the lights and heat on; a nice touch since I arrived after dark on a cold night. Breakfast was really good, everyone should find something they like from the buffet, which was complimentary (offerings included boiled eggs, toast, yoghurt, cereal, fresh fruit, croissants, coffee cake, sliced meats, cheese, rolls, 3 or 4 kinds of juice including freshly squeezed orange juice, and ...best of all...a capuccino machine.) Since I can drink a lot if cappuccino, I saved a bundle by doing so at the hotel rather than at the cafes, which charge anywhere from 2-4 Euros per cup in Florence. Since I was traveling alone I was given a small but cozy room with a twin bed. The bathroom was tiny, so much so that the toilet folded down from the wall, but I didn't mind, it was a novelty). It had a nice balcony, a few English channels, reliable free WiFi, a fridge, and a safe. I was there in the low season (mid-Feb) so the rate was a really good value (40 Euro/night, not sure if that is the same in high season) and well worth it. As other reviewers have stated, the family that runs Hotel Casci are what really make it special. They really seemed to care about their guests' comfort and sincerely appreciate their business. Highly recommend.

This was my favorite hotel we stayed in while touring Italy. The staff is friendly and treats you like family. It is clean, has a charging station allowing me to charge my phone, ipod, and camera all at the same time and not need an adapter. It is a close enough walk to the train station, the Duomo, and the Accademia. Breakfast was wonderful and the staff quick and helpful to answer question and take care of any and all needs. Thanks Hotel Casci!

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. It was in a very convenient location to the Duomo and other well known sights and an easy walk from the train station. The staff at the hotel were all very friendly and helpful. The breakfast had a great range of food to eat and the staff had no hesitation in getting hot chocolates for my daughters. Our quad room was basic but clean with a queen and 2 singles. We also had a room a long way from the entrance as the hotel went all the way back to the next street. This was not a problem but you didn't want to forget anything otherwise it took a length of time to go back.

We stayed here for 3 nights in December. The staff at Casci were great from the first email confirmation all the way through to checkout. They also helped us reserve our tickets to the Uffizi & the Accademia. The hotel itself is a homey place with a funky little labyrinth of hallways. My kids loved our tucked away room. The staff were friendly, the breakfast very nice- fruit, breads, cereals, juice, caffe, hot chocolate, freshly boiled eggs, meats, cheese & pastries. The location of the hotel is fantastic, easily walkable from the train station (10 mins perhaps) and maybe 5 mins to the Duomo. we found it to be very well situated. The room was a very good size with a queen bed and two singles - perfect for our family of four. the bathroom appeared to be newly renovated with nice new fixtures. Shower was a little oddly configured but with the building being so old i figured it was as good as they could get it. The room also has a nice charging station for electronics & a dvd player (the front desk offers a rather limited selection of DVDs but we still kicked back one evening to watch Honey I Shrunk the Kids with the kids). If & when we go back, we'll be sure to try booking the Casci again.

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.
