“Great Hotel near the train station”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2013

This is a great location to spend your honeymoon. Upon arrival via train we walked to the hotel (10 mins) with our bag no issues. The lobby is small but adequate. We went to our rooms and it was an ok size room. The bathroom is a stand up and per European standards. If you go for dinner or out you must leave the room keys with them which we thought was strange. We kept our stuff in the safe in the room. The staff was helpful in terms of going to the attractions and providing maps. The breakfast was alright with items they served. Ask for cappuccino rather than coffee. We had guest near us with a cat who cried and we told the front desk who took care of the issue. The restaurant next to the hotel is superb and affordable. The location was close to attractions.

We enjoyed our stay at the Caravaggio. The room was very roomy and the bathroom large. The staff was very helpful and the property was very clean. Breakfast was nice but not overwhelming. Our only criticism was the construction next door which they could not control. Keep in mind if looking to book soon. We would stay again minus the construction. Convenient to all attractions and the markets are just around the corner.

Big letdown. Our room was dingy and had a bad smell. The bathroom had missing and broken tiles with mildew growing around tub. We asked the desk clerk (who claimed to be one of the owners) why our room did not look like the room photos on the Hotel web-site, we were told those rooms were upgrades. Strange that the room we stayed in is the same room on-line but totally doctored up. Breakfast was o-k but low grade meats and pastries. The clerk was friendly as long as you loved everything. Location was only good thing about this hotel.

Dear Rita,

We are very surprised to read your comment as very strange.
Please send us an email telling us what was the number of your room so you can give the possibility to verify .
Obviously, in the hotel's website , we can not put all the photos of every room but the photos of the rooms accurately reflect the reality .
If you spend one minute to read the other comments received from all our guests of all nationalities , you will see that all of them were very happy with the room , the breakfast , the treatment received by the staff and even read " " not a 3 star " there really seems excessive considering the variety of the breakfast and all the other services we offer.
Thank you anyway for the comment and we look forward to your email where it is indicated the number of the room where you stayed so you can help us to improve and to understand if actually your comment reflects the reality.

Kind regards
Leonardo Hotel Caravaggio Firenze

We got to our room, generously sized for urban Europe. And then, we looked out the window, and we were very happy ;^). Bathroom was awesome, staff were great. Easy walk to the Duomo, and everywhere else. Beautiful breakfast room with a great selection. Good restaurants near the market, about five minute walk.

Room Tip: Get the "room with a view" if you can.

We had a great stay at the hotel at the end of October. The hotel is conveniently situated between the railway station and the historical sites. The accommodation is comfortable and well maintained, the breakfast surpassed our expectations, and the staff were professional and accommodating. We would definitely stay at the Caravaggio if we were to make another visit to Florence.

The Hotel is a short walk from the Florence Train station and is within walking distance to all major sites. The hotel staff was very friendly and inviting and was very helpful in giving us suggestions as to what to see and do in Florence. The rooms was very clean and comfortable with very good wifi access. The breakfast wass very good with a good selection of items to choose from. We had a very enjoyable stay and will stay there again the next time we visit Florence.

The hotel is 7 mins walking from Santa Maria Novella and also walking distance from most of the tourist attractions. The reception was very helpful with all the information we needed and also helped us to book our one day Tuscany tour. The breakfast is very elaborate and nice. The only thing that we didn't appreciate was the room size, though the room was clean and had all basic amenities it was too small (we stayed in room 108 probably that was very small).
