“Nice room with w/ Good Breakfast and Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

This hotel is a perfect "home base" for visitors to Florence. It is within walking distance of nearly all of the major attractions and museums. The service was very good and the breakfast was well above average. The roof top of the hotel is accessible from the lobby and has a wonderful 360 degree view of Florence, including the Duomo. The room was clean and comfortable. I would definitely stay here again.

Stayed here for two nights and was disheartened by the amont of grafiti on entering the premises. In addition the hotel is split into two, the 1st floor and fourth floor, with reception and better rooms on the 4th floor. We were allocated a room on the 1st floor which required using an antiquated lift to the 4th floor or stairs. The second and 3rd floors were private accomodation and an assocaition of sorts, which seemed very bizarre. Our room on the 1st floor lacked natural light and looked onto a rather forlorn non discript area. The bahroom was minute, housing a sink, bidet and toilet. The shower was at the batroom door and had no cubicle with the shower head falling over the toilet, when showeing everything was soaked including the floor into the bedroom. The noise from above was constant with people moving around. If visiting categorically ask for a room on the 4th floor I would assume they are far superior and the rooms on the 1st floor are totally inadquate.

Room Tip: DO NOT accept a room on the 1st floor. The bathrooms are tiny and totally inadequate. You cannot hav...

Does what it says on the tin. This is a 2-star hotel in downtown Florence. Though reviews say that it’s a 15minute walk away from the Duomo, that’s really not that long and there’s so much to see in Florence that even being a walk away from the Duomo, you’re still in the heart of things. We had a standard twin room, which was basic and clean. There is nothing special about the room, but so long as you need a place you lay your head down at the end of the day, you’re fine. Expect anything more, and you’ll be disappointed. The bathroom is small and the shower is between the toilet and bidet lol! which was almost worth it for comedy value alone, No shower curtain btw, but it was still ok. There is a tv in the room, but not many foreign channels. Breakfast was included in the price and was enough decent.
Staff were helpful and nice.
Excellent Value is the key here.

I was passing through Florence and need a place for one night. This hotel has a great location and is in walking distance of major attractions and restaurants. The room was very clean and comfortable. The staff was very helpful with booking a restaurant and getting an early morning taxi. I have no complaints and would stay there again.

Spent a week here - loved it. Room was small but comfortable with everything we needed. En suite shower room. Our room had lovely view over rooftops to Sante Croce and on to Mont Michelangelo. Breakfast room good - more than sufficient continental breakfast (fruit, youghurt, bread, cheese, cold meats) breakfats with lovely fresh orange juice. Staff very helpful and courteous. Excellent location - 10 minutes walk up pedestrian street to Duomo and central city. All main sights within comfortable walking distance. Supermarket and pharmacy across the road. Lots of restaurants and wine bars within few blocks. Will definitely recommend it and will certainly stay there again. Excellent value for money.

The location of this hotel is perfect, only about 10 minutes walk from the Duomo and with a choice of good restaurants in the vicinity.
The breakfast is excellent - rolls, cheese, ham. butter, jam, croissants etc. The fresh orange juice is a bonus though the coffee is not very good.
The staff were extremely helpful.
There is some street noise late at night.

We spend 4 nights at hotel Bodoni, from October 8 to October 12.

PROS
The hotel is located in a very nice and quite neighborhood. Room is very clean, towels changed every day, the bed is comfortable. There is a safe in the room, when we put our money and documents.
TV is fine, with some stations in Italian and English.
Staff is very welcoming, ready to help and suggest excellent restaurants for a romantic dinner.
The strongest point of this hotel is definitely the breakfast: freshly squeezed orange juice, like nothing I've seen in other hotels.
Great location for getting to the historical sites of Florence. Bus station is just around the corner.
At the supermarket across the street (Conad), you can buy snackes, refreshments, fruits for a nice dinner on the balcony.

CONS
Bathroom was a little small with no window, but does the job.

I would stay here again!
