Had some great conversations with the staff, Tiziano, Roberto etc. the hotel is five minutes walk to the duomo, and ten minutes to the train station, highly recommended and felt sad to leave after nearly a week there.

The location is about 5 min walk away from Duomo. Like you, I thought this might be too 'far' from Duomo, as there were some other options that were closer to Duomo and more expensive because of it. But once I got here I realised there isn't really not that much difference. You walk 5 min maximum and if that... More

This hotel is in such a great location for touring attractions. Easy walk to Duomo, restaurants, galleries. Staff so pleasant and helpful. Speak English. Very clean. I would certainly stay there again if I am lucky enough to visit Florence again. Wonderful city!!!

Hotel Gioia is in a fantastic location, within easy walking distance to all the main attractions in Florence. The decor is a little bit dated but the hotel and rooms are spotlessly clean. The real highlight of this hotel is the staff. They are always smiling and are so helpful and attentive. My sister hurt her back while we were... More

The hotel is perfect located for a sightseeing trip in Florence. The hotel isn't new but clean. The breakfast was small but enough. The employees of the hotel were so nice and helpful! My mum and I felt very comfortable and we would come back without any doubt. Grazie e rivedere!

i stayed recently for 3 nights at the Gioia while on a short break with a friend to Florence. Before travelling we emailed the hotel and they sent us walking directions (about 15 mins) from the bus/traIn stations which was very helpful. This hotel is really homely and pristinely clean. Some might call the decor a bit dated but I... More

The hotel was dated and breakfast was very basic but good value for money, clean and the staff were very friendly. It had air con which was a bonus and a... More

20 minutes from the train station. Lots of stairs, but there is a lift and we used it many times. Breakfast was not good, American coffee was awful, nut capo chino was better. Smelly room, tiny shower, small soap. Bad air conditioner-- we froze or sweated every night. Noise throughout night-- many drunks howling outside at 3 am. Still, easy... More

This was our first trip to Italy. We had only 3 days and this Hotel, although fairly basic, was just perfect. It is very central to everything, comfortable and clean. The staff could not have been more friendly or helpful. Breakfast was simple and plentiful. It is a good hour on the bus from Pisa Airport. I had emailed the... More

Location is amazing and less than 5 mins to the duomo. However hotel itself is very dated and feels more like a hostel due to the layout and dated feel. Saying that our room was big and all rooms have a private bathroom, and you are never in the room anyway. Breakfast is very basic and wouldn't recommend, however if... More
