This Hotel is really a wonderful place. Very clean and comfortable! It had elements of the Old-World charm to the entrance, but was modern and updated enough to please anyone. It even had an elevator, which is rare for these walk-up type places and oh-so-totally necessary after hours and hours of walking around the city. Free wi-fi, A/C, not too small/cramped and nice updated and spotless bathrooms (with a bidet!).

Location is PERFECT. Right down the street from Il Duomo, literally a 30 second walk. Not too noisy, even in the summer, surprisingly. Had the best experience because our room was on the 4th floor and our windows opened to a bell tower on the church next door, which most pleasantly rang each morning we were there! The most BEAUTIFUL wake-up call in my life. So close to many restaurants, bars, pizzerias, Laundromats, gelaterias, etc. Hubby and I liked to go down to Sculdieri (the sweetshop & cafe on the corner) for a coffee and cookie in the evening on our way back to Perseo.

Service was excellent and friendly, they were all very helpful. Breakfast was very decent for a continental: Croissant, buns, cold cuts, fruit, boiled eggs, coffee, OJ, Tea, etc. Even had a cappuccino in the morning! (SO nice!) Beds comfortable and plenty of room. My husband and I were both really sick when we got to Firenze, but the staff was so nice and generally left us alone, (except for one annoying maid who kept banging at the door!) but generally they let us sleep in because we were sick! (SUPER nice of them!)

Would definitely recommend this and would absolutely stay here again.

The staff was extremely helpful. The rooms were very clean and there was a good breakfast. The location was close to the train station and all of the museums and churches. Good sized room. We would definitely stay there again.

Great hotel...a little hard to find if you are looking at the street numbers. We passed the hotel and had to back track as street numbers are not always in sequential order in Italy. Very centrally located. We could literally walk outside and be right in front of the Duomo. San Lorenzo market was just a few streets away. The hotel staff were superb and very accomodating. They gave restaurant recommendations and advice on where to go for the best sights. A nice little tip we got: close the windows because mosquitos will run rampant if they are left open. We were very appreciative of this advice! Breakfast was delicious! A pleasant mix of American style & European style breakfast. Cafe options were made to order. A/C is a provided by individual room units and the key must be returned to the front desk when you leave the hotel. They have 24 hr access so you will always be able to get in. I would stay here again when I visit Florence again!

Very clean, friendly, and wonderfully located place to stay. The staff was very helpful. The location is great and it is very close to the Duomo and to some really good restaurants. It is also very close to the train station. Florence is an amazing city and this hotel is a good place to stay to help you enjoy the city.

I took my parents to Italy, Florence was one of our favorite cities. Hotel Perseo was only steps away from the Duomo and super close to the train station. Staff is friendly, room is clean, quiet and cozy, we had a view facing a small bell tower, it was story-like. Good breakfast selection, aside from croissant, there were boiled egg, ham, cheese and fruits. I highly recommend this hotel and would use it again if I go back to Florence.

This hotel is on the edge of the pedestrian zone in central Florence, about 100 metres from the Duomo. Reception and the breakfast room are on the third floor, and most of the rooms seem to be on that or higher floors. There is a small lift. My room on the 4th floor was well above almost all the city noise; traffic noice and church bells tend to start around 7.00 a.m. on weekdays. The room was on the small side. I had to sleep diagonally in what was notionally a double bed, and there was little space between the foot of the bed and the wall. The bathroom was compact. The continental breakfast buffet offered a good range of choice. Staff are friendly and helpfull, and speak good English. Booking online in late October, at short notice, I got the room and breakfast at half the maximum rate.
