Lovely staff and perfect place for us. Breakfast in the morning and just enough space for us to be comfortable and relax when we were in the room which was not often. Great location as Sante Croce is full of great restaurants and piazzas. 10m walk to all the great sites .

Hotel Dante is a nice place to stay while you're in Florence. The staff is incredibly helpful, and my room was clean and felt safe. The location is wonderful. Breakfast was just alright. The website is misleading in that it indicates that there is a free shuttle to the airport, but that is not the case. For the price, this...

Hotel is located near Santa Croce Church, which a 13 min walk from Duomo. Service in this hotel is 10 stars, specially Belal, who is so friendly and helpful to any kind of questions/requests we had. Just one point, restroom supplies/soap/shampoo is not renewed everyday - but i think they'll give it to you if asked. Late checkout is not...

The room was very clean and comfortable, also much larger than expected. The location was superb - felt like a really safe area, only...

I stayed in this hotel over the fall when I was visiting my family in the city and I've never felt more at home, in the space, with the layout of the rooms originally designed for famous Italian actors with basic living quarters. I found inspiration, peace and all the support I needed to feel completely at home in the...

Right around the corner from St. Croce cathedral and next to the Michaelangelo museum, so very central. Charming old hotel with lovely courtyard, beautiful coffee room and breakfast, and most importantly, very friendly, helpful, staff, especially Bilal and the owner, Federica.

I absolutely love this little hotel right on the outskirts of the centre of Florence! walking distance to everything, but slightly out of the way that its not noisey come night time. Staff are so welcoming and friendly, they cannot be faulted. The room was large and clean, bed comfy and soft, a little too soft for my husband, but...

Hotel Dante is a lovely quaint little hotel and very central for exploring Florence. The staff are very kind and helpful. We enjoyed our stay there and would certainly return. Our room was large and clean with very nice bathroom. Breakfast was excellent and we felt sad to say goodbye. No hesitation in recommending Hotel Dante.

Yet this hotel offers modern amenities such as Wi-Fi.The staff was very helpful in suggesting sites see and places to dine. The buffet breakfast was...

This hotel is OK. The localization is excellent as you are at walking distance from most of the historic sites in Florence. The rooms need to be upgraded as they are pretty outdated. Cleanliness is average. The breakfast is nothing special and I even recommend having no breakfast at the hotel as there are many excellent choices much cheaper nearby....
