“Great Value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

Great Hotel for the price. It is a little far from all the main attractions, but we didn't mind the walk after all the large meals we had. Wifi was spotty, but nice to have in room wifi access. AC worked well. All staff were extrememly helpful with maps and directions at all times of the day.

The hotel is in an older building, a bit further north from the main action of Florence.
Nonetheless, the staff was extremely kind and helpful and gave really good suggestions for restaurants and places to go. It was really helpful to have someone at the reception 24h.
Considering the low price, the hotel is very nice and always clean. The AC works, there was a nice TV (with English channels!), and wifi that works, overall nice room...
The breakfast was good and the hotel staff came every morning to the breakfast room offering coffee to their guests.
I felt safe in the hotel, the room double locks and there is always staff at the front desk.

We stayed 4 nights at this hotel: the staff was very helpful & it was very clean. It is very close by Academia museum & not far from the historical center (maybe 15 minutes of walk). I recommend this hotel !

Room Tip: We chose a room that includes a bathroom.

beautiful & clean. 24 hours staff. the owners and the staff are highly knowledgble about florence, and are happy to assit. the breakfast is great, the prices are reasonable. the atmosphre is calm and inviting (great music...)
the owners helped us with tickets to uffizi, and went out of their way with helping us find another place to stay, when they were full. gave us detailed information about touring chianty, including busses time table, renting a car etc. in total. the only downfault is that it's 10 min walk from the duamo, and still, in my opininon a very pleasant and recommended place to stay when in florence.

Room Tip: seems that the rooms closer to the reception are better

We arrived in Firenze after sunset so struggled a bit to find it as the directions said it's walking distance from the train station. Not so much if you have luggage like we did.

The hotel itself was good, clean and most importantly had the best staff of our entire tour of Italy. Very passionate about their city and gave us the best spots to visit and the best times to visit them. You get a map after check-in.

The internet was a bit tricky to configure but once its done all is fine.

The downside:
The rooms mostly opened up to the central courtyard which meant we had to keep the curtains closed as others could see into your room. And you miss out on the infamous romanticised evening panorama of Firenze. They did however say they may have rooms with views in the future if/when they purchase the 3rd floor.

Overall we were happy with this hotel and enjoyed our stay in Firenze.

Room Tip: None of the rooms have a view so no need to ask reception for a room change. Maybe they could incorp...

Beaides the relatively longer walk to get to this hotel everything about it said "over delivered". Reception will help you organise anything and help you plan a day trip on the fly, saving you hours. Rooms cleaned daily and have amazing air con and wifi. A cheap 5 euros get you a buffet breakfast and real italian coffee if you ask the owners whom are both extremely nice gentlemen. I would love to return here one day for a longer stay and advise anyone travelling to Florence to give it a shot

My family and I stayed at Hotel Benvenuti Aug 3-5. Our room was renovated, clean, spacious, and well maintained. The AC was working well on the 98 degree days we spent in Florence. The breakfast included fresh brewed espresso and cappucino. The staff was the best, going above and beyond and making great recommendations and giving great directions. One tip I'd give to those driving to the hotel is there are 2 similar addresses (one red one black?) and my rental tom tom took us to the other address down the forbidden roads where cameras enforce the traffic law. The staff entered our plate number in the traffic database that hopefully clears our vehicle. Tito restaurant was excellent and the pizzeria next to Tito was very good. Both are a short walk. The elevator is small but held all of our luggage with a rider. The wifi worked in the rooms. Thanks for a great stay.
