“Don't waste your time”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

in the embassy district. Walls are paper thin. You can hear everything. Rooms weren't very well cleaned. Shower was small and the water dripped out with no pressure whatsoever. All thats good is price. But next time I would pay a little bit more for a better location as well as a cleaner hotel.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

A spacious room with a clean ensuite. No character to speak of furniture wise but we just used the place as a base in Florence for 3 days before we went to Tuscany. I personally have stayed in much friendlier places but hey, it was good for a short stay. Breakfast was basic and sufficient. Next time, will choose a more central place to stay. About 10 minutes walk from the train station.

How could there be an oasis in the city? It's this hotel; beautiful old building on the river with 500€ a night view for under 100€! Best location for all you want to see is within a 5-10 minute walk. It has the most informative and nice staff. Nice clean and quiet room . I would highly suggest it!

This was a great spot, ten minutes walk from the centre of Florence (and also the bus station), but looking out on the river away from the traffic. We were also given a good breakfast. We would stay here again.

We have just returned for a 3 day trip to Florence, at Casa del Lago. Important things to remember: it's a 2 star hotel so you cannot ask for 4-5 stars amenities. Everything I write is just related to this. These are 2 full stars, i would even compare it to a 3 star hotel due of the rooms, location and amability of the staff. Clean simple rooms with AC and WiFi, windows looking over Arno river, quiet. For us it was perfect - mature couple. If i were to return i would choose it again. Location is great, 10-15 minutes walk to all majore tourist attractions. Hotel is at the 4th floor (last) in a neighbourhood of embassies, 2 of them in the same building so it's safe to walk around at any hour day or night. The price of the room is fair and it comes with a generous breakfast. The opera music in the background while serving breakfast is just a classy touch of the italian style, loved it!

Room Tip: Choose a room with wooden floors instead of the cement ones. You can choose to have a room with fron...

Lovely, clean and comfortable, value for money 2-star hotel. The location is about 15 min walk from the main train station and also a 10-15 min walk (not stroll, but it is flat) along the river to the centre of Florence. It’s a quiet spot with limited food options close by but we really liked it. The staff was the friendliest we’d experienced during our 6 week European vacation. Breakfasts were a bit light on (I like a big brekkie) but this was totally compensated for by the best cappuccinos in Italy! We loved Florence and would definitely stay at Casa del Lago again. Wi-fi access was free.
