I was here for 2 nights with my husband whom needed to attend a Congress in Firenze. We tried to find a hotel the night before our trip (it was kind of a last-minute decision) and we found Albergo Giovanna to be very near Fiera (where the Congress would take place), and it was in our price range, so we...

No option of keeping the window open as the road isn't busy but still too noisy to sleep. A Conad supermarket just around the corner so you can pick up some... More

I stayed there for 3 nights and Mrs Giovana gave us a really nice treat. She didn't expected us because there was a problem with the web page where we book our room, but she made the arrangements to stay in a nice room. The rooms are very nice, the place is five minutes away from the train station and... More

The location of this hotel is perfect, just a 5 minute walk from the cathedral and lorenzo market or the train station. The property itself is on the 3rd floor of an old building and everything inside looked very old. The granny that runs the place didn't speak much english and didn't even give us towels. She also spoke on... More
