“Basic hotel, good value, good location, very friendly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

Friendly small hotel, basically one redone floor of an old palazzo (none of the old charm remains except for a fresco on the breakfast room ceiling). Excellent location, 10 minute walk to Santa Maria Novella train station, 5 minutes to Duomo, very good spot in historic area. I moved over here for a weekend after spending a week with friends in an apartment on Piazza della Signoria. I thought the room was clean and relatively spacious, especially the bathroom (which can be tiny in Europe). The staff at front desk was generally helpful and very friendly (the evening guy seemed a little grumpy but no big deal). The breakfast is very nice and you can get some good coffee and bread and cheese or cereal to start your day. Rates are competitive. The place has got everything you need but remember, it is sort of basic, So if you stay here with that in mind you will be satisfied.

The hotel itself is situated only a few minutes walk from basically everything you probably came to Firenze to see. The rooms are clean and spacious compared to many other budget hotels in Europe. The hotel has a really cosy breakfast room, with the basics to start your day. Excellent coffe! The price per night is very reasonable!

The best part about this hotel, though, is the superfriendly and service minded staff who work there. I have hardly met such genuinley nice people working in a hotel anywhere I have traveled. They made my wife & I, and our baby girl feel at home. This is the kind of place that makes you want to come back to Firenze as soon as possible.

And by the way; try the gelato store in the street behind the hotel. You won't regret it!

See you soon!

Stayed here again at the beginning of March with my 11 year old grandson. It was as good as I remembered. The staff were wonderfully helpful, nothing was too much trouble, the breakfasts were very good and actually filled his hollow legs, plus of course the location is amazing, within short walking distance of all the "sights". I would never want to stay anywhere else in Florence, it ticks all the boxes.

This is one of the best 2 stars hotels in Florence because of their great location, amazing customer service of the staff, internet availability in your room, free breakfast and cleanliness of the rooms...So OK...the beds are a little hard...but I would stay in this hotel when I come back to Florence...Paolo, Pierpaolo, and Carla and the rest of the staff are eager to make restaurant, attraction or other reservations and help you in any way they can. The location is close to the Duomo, Accademia Gallery and walking distance to everywhere.

I stayed here in February with my family and it was an absolute delight. Very friendly and helpful staff, lovely breakfasts and a brilliant location with virtually everything you want to see within walking distance. I certainly hope to return.

We stayed here on our first trip to Italy. The staff were very helpful and courteous with us as naive American travelers. The hotel is centrally located within walking distance of the train station, Duomo, Uffizi and Accademia Gallery. The breakfast is wonderful, with fresh fruit, pastries, and cappuccino to name a few items. We would definitely stay at Hotel Casci again.
