“Beautiful, gracious, modern hotel in the heart of Florence”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

This hotel is a gorgeous gem in the heart of Florence. It has been refurbished recently in clean, modern colors of cream and soft grey with beautiful marble and natural stone throughout. The rooms and bathrooms are exquisitely furnished and appointed with modern fixtures, the ceilings high, with tall windows that let in the light. Best of all, its location, every major piazza is a stone's throw from the front door. You can throw open the windows and look down to the street to see the weather and the activity below. And there are wooden inside shutters to close against the noise. It's simply perfect. Coming home to it at night after a bustling, crowded day exploring Florence was like coming home to a spa.And breakfast is very robust--with eggs, cooked ham, cereals, cheeses, cold cuts, fruit, etc. Cant recommend more highly.

No space in the bathrooms and terrible shower-tub with no space or force. The room seemed to be decent and the service. Plenty of space in the room. No tv service and a 20" screen. The view to the square was pretty decent as well. Internet functioned well.

My husband and I had a wonderful stay with Hotel Calzaiuolo last week, October 22nd thru October 25th. The front desk staff was very helpful with suggestions and directions, this was our first trip to Florence. The wait staff in the breakfast room was responsive and cheerful and the room staff did a wonderful job. We had the good fortune of enjoying one of the newly renovated rooms, the decor is perfectly elegant. My daughter will be in Florence next month and I am recommending she call HC!

Best,

Kathleen Reese

Room Tip: Second floor has recently been renovated, really lovely!

Our family stayed here for several nights. We selected the hotel based on the location and air conditioning. It is located on the main street between the Duomo and the Piazza della Signoria. Easy to walk everywhere. The rooms were comfortable and clean. The staff was friendly and helpful. They use the "old fashioned" key system where you leave your key at the front desk while you are gone, this is how the staff knows you are away and can clean your room without disturbing you.
The only problem: we asked for a room in the back of the hotel and were awakened on 2 occasions by late night/early morning revelers on the street behind the hotel. Otherwise, it was a stay and we recommend staying here.

The location is the best. It's just a short walk to all of the most popular sites, yet a room in the back of the hotel is quiet. The hotel staff is totally professional and accommodating, they gladly found us places to eat, called for cabs when necessary and were overall very helpful. The breakfast is lovely, this hotel was the perfect choice for our trip.

We had a room in the back of the hotel off the main street. It seemed like the reviews said the front of the hotel could be noisy. We were not disappointed, every morning we woke up to the numerous church bells and it was so relaxing. The view was nice, we could see the Duomo and views of the hills in the distance. I don't think you can beat the location. Breakfast was fine, meats, cheeses, breads, eggs everything you would expect. If you are looking for a nice hotel in the center of Florence, this place is for you.

Room Tip: Rooms on the back offer great views and church bells in the morning

We enjoyed everything about this hotel. The rooms were clean, beautifully decorated and quiet. The location is unbeatable, as you can walk to everything in Florence- including the train station! The service was fine (no complaints) and the breakfast served our purposes wonderfully.

The only CON I can think of is the shower. It consisted of a 1/2 wall of glass, so the water sprayed everywhere, and got the floor soaked each day. I'm surprised they chose this design.

Other than that- it was a wonderful stay in a great hotel! I would definitely recommend it!
