“Fantastic Hotel in Florence”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

Hotel Perseo is right next to the Duomo & Baptistery. It is also just a short walk to the train station. The room we stayed in had the view of the church bells of Santa Maria Maggiore which is one of the oldest Medieval churches in Firenze and located next to Hotel Perseo. Our room was clean & spacious. The bathroom was large and the bed was comfortable. Breakfast was plenty and of a good variety with fruits, yogurts, cheeses, cold cuts, cereals, jams, toast, croissant, rolls, coffee & tea. Hotel Perseo has excellent and efficient front desk staff, Laura & Louise who are always there to help guests with their tours & other needs. The hotel also have a high speed internet which is a necessity for every traveler these days. I felt comfortable, safe & secure while in this hotel and I will definitely stay at Hotel Perseo again when in Firenze.

Location was great, our room was clean and bright, we had lots of space, quiet , and easy walking distance to all attractions, the staff very friendly and helpful, they arranged our tickets for the the Uffizi and Academia. Breakfast was tasty and a good selection. Staff suggested some excellent local restaurants for dinner. Would stay there again and most definitely recommend Hotel Perseo to others.

Hotel Perseo was one of the better hotels that I stayed at during my tour of northern Italy. It's centrally located, and near many of the historical areas that one would visit while in Florence. The hotel felt very secure with cameras in the hallways and stairwells; there was a nighttime worker at the desk at all times. Breakfast was great--fresh fruit, cereals, cheeses, meats, breads, coffee, juice, and danishes. The room was spacious and clean, and the bathroom/shower was a non-tyipcal historical Italian layout--roomy. Overall the stay was very pleasant, and all of the staff were beyond welcoming, helpful, and delightful!

How many hotels great you with a smile and a good joke every day? The breakfast is amazingly good. The location is unbeatable and even though it rained they let us borrowed umbrellas. They booked a day trip to Siena, San Gimingnano and Pisa and our Uffizi tkts all before we arrived. Hats off to the staff who had to deal with tired, cold and wet travelers during Easter week. Rooms are warm and roomy. The staff is what really makes this hotel a wonderful place.

I spent 4 nights at Hotel Perseo with my husband. It was so central. A quick 5minute walk from the main station in Florence and an even quicker 1 minute walk to the Duomo! The hotel is very neat and our room was spacious. The bathroom as very well layed out so you don't feel cramped. Breakfast was typical Italian, and the hot chocolate was great. The guys running the hotel very very helpful and very friendly. I would definitely recommend this hotel for anyone visiting Florence.

We chose this hotel on account of the good reviews from TA and were not disappointed. The train station is a 10-15 minute walk away. The Duomo is a few minutes' walk down the road, as were many of the other sights - all within 5-10 minutes' walk. Great base for sightseeing. As we had heavy luggage, we made sure we booked a hotel that had a lift as we did not want to haul our bags up the stairs. We were given a room on the hotel reception floor (3rd floor) at the back of the building which was great as it was very quiet. The room was a good size by Florence standards. The furnishing was rather dated but adequate since we hardly spent any time in the room. Breakfast was the usual continental fare that sufficiently equipped us for the start of the day. Hotel staff were great with their dinner recommendations, very friendly and helpful indeed. Was a pleasure to stay here.

My wife and I stayed here on our trip to Italy last summer. From the moment we walked in until we left the hotel staff was kind and courteous. We appreciated the fact that the wifi was truly free and not a gimmick that was played in other hotels. The hotel was centrally located and it seemed only a few hundred feet away from the duomo. I would certainly stay here again on a return trip to Florence.
