“Wild stay here again”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013 via mobile

A five star review doesn't mean a 5 star hotel. It means that this hotel does what it says it does much better than its 2 star rating and that with a glut of choices of where to stay in Florence, we would definitely stay here again.

Location: Perfect. Everything is walkable. 1 minute to Da Vinci. 1 minute to Dali. 3 minutes to Duomo. 4 minutes to Accademia. Maybe 10 minutes to Uffizi and Galileo.
Staff: Family run. Very professional but very friendly.
Rooms: comfortable beds, space for hanging clothes, good pressure shower with good hot water. Very clean!
Wi-fi works really well throughout the hotel with good speed. Also a hard wired computer near reception.


Overall this hotel punches well above its weight. It's reasonably priced - not the cheapest and far from expensive, but really good value.

Thanks to all TAers who recommended this place. Ultra-clean, great breakfast (including boil-yourself eggs if you like), free high-speed Internet and excellent, room-controlled air conditioning. But the best thing is the family that runs this place. From the moment you enter, you know you are welcomed as their guests. When we couldn't get a rental car, they found one for us. Recommendations, maps, help with reservations--whatever you need, they're there for you. My single (and its bathroom) was small, definitely uncomfortable for two, but it was fine for me, with a large, comfortable bed. And the place is ultra-clean and walkable to all the sites, located between the Duomo and the Accademia (where David is on display). Highly recommended.

We had been driving all over Italy but I had not planned on driving in Florence.
Somehow we ended up lost and paid a taxi driver 10 euros to lead us to the hotel. At one point I was driving in heavy traffic with 7 or 8 motorcycles surrounding me! When we arrived we took the elevator up to the entrance to the hotel and were met by very friendly staff, helpful and kind especially the mother, she is so sweet. This is a "home away from home" even though it is a "larger hotel" it retains the feeling of a small, hard working, family run operation. I can not understand why this is 2 stars, I think it should be 3. There are 3 English TV channels. The breakfasts were really good, I looked forward to the wonderful fresh fruit they served. It is an amazing location so near to the striking Duomo and all Florence has to offer. Be sure and climb to the top of the dome!! Florence is my favorite city in Italy and if you like to shop look no further! It is truly shop till you drop but also filled with gourmet food markets, museums and other cultural attractions. It is a small manageable " city" to wander around and get lost in.......It is "people watching" at it's best! My mother got her hair done at a beauty shop recommended by the hotel and was very happy with the results. You will love the folks who run this little gem in the heart of Florence!

Room Tip: We had the quad room and it was very nice, over looking a small side street.

We have been multiple times in Florence over the last 12 years. We have always stayed at Hotel Casci and have benefited from the Lombardi Family's hospitality. The rooms are very clean and well maintained. Paolo, Mrs. Lombardi, Pierre Paolo and the rest of the staff have always been tremendously helpful on everything we have ever needed. Their location permits you to walk all over the city center and cover every major site in reasonable time. The breakfast is very good and efficient. We have always been extremely satisfied and look forward to continue staying at this establishment. The only thing I regret not doing some time ago is sharing my experience with others about what a wonderful hotel this is and what a fantastic value it represents.

For my wife and me this hotel was as near perfect as you can get. We have travelled extensively internationally on business and experienced the excesses of “luxury” hotels. How pleasant it was to be treated with genuine warmth as individuals. Our room was comfortable and clean and quiet as well as well looked after by the attentive staff. The selection of fruits and cereals, breads and pastries for breakfast was excellent. The coffee was superb. The Casci location in the heart of historical Florence is wonderful, all the museums and attractions being accessible within easy walking distance. Great value!
It was a little sad to be leaving such genuinely kind and hospitable people.

This is a such a gem, in the middle of the historic area, the hotel is on the 2nd floor on the street where the old Medici Palazzo and followers' properties were located. The Lombardi family who run the hotel are welcoming, extremely helpful and can't do enough for you. The twin-bedded room was nice and spacious and the bathroom not only a good size, but complete with all mod cons and hairdryer and bidet. TV, electronic chargers and safe usage were included in price. Everything was spotless. Buffet breakfast very enjoyable, in a room with an attractve antique ceiling fresco. Close to the local attractions - particularly the beautiful Duomo lit up at night, small and larger eateries closeby, this was the perfect location for a short getaway. For a 2* hotel this is amaziing - we got far more than our money's worth - we certainly hope to go again.

I had a few reservations about my choice of a hotel wnen arriving at the hotel. It is not a separate building but rather a complete floor in a n historic building in an incrediable location in Forence.
All my doubts were quickly gone at the reception desk as I was checking in. The owners and staff of Hotel Casci are both extremely professional , caring and nice. They truly go out of their way to be helpful.
The rooms while simple are immaculate, ditto the ensuite bathrooms.
The breakfasts served in the morning are very adequate, with a good choice of cereals, juices, fresh fruit, breads, italian breakfast cakes and hard boiled eggs.and of course tea and coffee.
I woild definitely return to this hotel and have already recommended it to friends who will be traveling this year. The value can not be beat.
